What do you do when your son wants to carry a bag like his lil'sis' and mom? Well I used to let Mister M walk out with one of Miss E's bags until a few weeks ago I entered a giveaway over at Ellie Bellie Kids and won an awesome over the shoulder "boy" bag! It's sturdy, black and blue, and has a great little robot on it. Daddy Cool definitely approves of this bag and it follows us everywhere.
 Let me tell you a little about the bag, it's a messenger bag that was originally designed for kids who take yoga, so there are two elastic straps on the side to hold the mat. Mister M doesn't go to yoga, although maybe he should, but we've been using the straps to hold Marvin the robot (yes from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy) and it's great to hold towels or a blanket or even a coat. The size is perfect for  everyday use, it can fit a book, some snacks and even a change of clothes, oh and let's not forget his cars. The strap is wide so it makes it comfortable and doesn't dig into the shoulder. The fabric is thick and looks like it will last for years, good thing because Mister M takes it with him to the restaurant, to his grandma's, to wherever... Now if I could make just one comment, unfortunately we live in a winter climate and Mister M has to wear a bulky coat, I would have loved it if the strap was just a little longer, we have a hard time fitting it over his head sometimes and also that way he could keep even longer as he grows... 

Now, It's really too bad this bag isn't being produced yet, because Miss E had one of her biggest jealousy fits when Mister M got his package in the mail! However, you can find some other great items over at Ellie Bellie Kids, like an other bag or perhaps a super hero cape. I'm thinking of getting the kids one of their Robots, shhhh don't tell them! And seriously the prices are great.

While your at it, check out their blog Classic Play, it's full of great activities for the kids, the best birthday party ideas as well and it's just plain fun! It's an other one of my favorites...

Thank you Ellie Bellie Kids for such a great item! Mister M now looks cooler than ever wearing his "man purse"!
