One of the most given advice when you travel is to pack light. When you are an adult, you could easily stuff a week’s worth of clothing in your carry-on bag. Being a parent, however, this poses a challenge. Your efforts will usually look like this: a separate bag for clothes, a bag for toiletries, a bag for toys, a travel blanket for those cozy travel naps. That’s for only one kid. And then, you get to play Tetris trying to fit everyone’s luggage in the minivan’s trunk.
Buddy Bagz wants to eliminate this problem. So, they designed a product which features almost everything you might need when traveling with kids.
A sample was sent to us. We were very excited to try out this product.
Our son Andy was very excited to unbox it. Ever since he saw them in the Buddy Bagz website, he wanted one. The available designs to choose from were Koala Buddy, Guitar Buddy, Football Buddy, Baseball Buddy, Brave (Lion) Buddy, Soccer Buddy, Cupcake Buddy, and Monkey Buddy. We chose the last one for Andy since he likes monkeys.
When he found out that it was the Buddy Bagz package, Andy immediately grabbed it out of the box and wrestled with it. He didn’t know what he was getting so he guessed that it was either the Lion or the Monkey. It was so fluffy and soft! It felt very nice.
A young toddler, such as our son, will need some parental assistance to unroll it. Its being held by wooden toggles which might be frustrating for a kid who has not figured out buttons yet and who just wanted to use his new buddy.
When our 3-year-old son tried it on as backpack (it had carrying straps), it barely lifted off the ground. He was also saying that it was heavy. What’s great about it though is it also fits our arms. Parents can carry them too for their kids. The bag also came with an additional strap so you could carry it either like a golf bag or a duffel bag.
What makes this sleeping bag stand out from other similar products in the market is that it comes with a travel bag and a toiletry bag too.
The main bag had a lot of space to store at least a weekend of clothes and toys. The toiletry bag can fit your child’s toiletries such as their toothbrushes or even their medicines.
When rolled together, the main bag is tastefully covered by the Buddy’s head. The main bag can still be opened even if the whole sleeping bag is rolled. Easy access!
The bag is not attached to the blanket. You can use them together or separately.
Other smaller details that we appreciated was the secret compartment inside the Buddy’s head. Perfect for storing little toys or pictures of Mom and Dad. The head itself can be a toy too!
There is also a night light tucked away in the tail part. Great accessory to have for reading bedtime stories!
When I received this product to review, the Buddy Bagz costs around $59.99 with free shipping to the USA. They are currently not shipping internationally.
