Alright, I have a fantabulous (I know that’s not a word, but I had to come up with a good word, because this is so awesome!) Mom invention for all you Mom’s who are always on the go, go, go! I am always leaving the house to go some place, and I catch myself stuffing, toys, books, and necklaces (my daughter loves necklaces!) in my diaper bag making it over filled. I had to come up with a way to stop my excessive toy stuffing….so I searched the web, and found the Toy Nanny, by 2 Red Hens.
This solved so many of my problems I was facing. I now have a separate adorable cute bag for my daughters toys. But, this is not just for toys. Or at least for me it’s not. I am almost tempted to use this as a diaper bag! It seems so handy and perfect for a diaper bag situation. I took this to the pool one day, and I filled it to the top. I put in, 3 beach towels, an outfit for me, my hubby, and daughter, wallet, a few toys, wipes, diapers, swim diapers, snacks, and drinks. I didn’t get the bag fully closed, but nothing fell out. I wished I would have snapped a picture of it! This is for sure going to be my pool bag from now on! The bag is also great for traveling. Especially weekend trips to Grandma’s!
This beautiful bag turns into a lovely play mat for your babies. I’m sure all kids dream of being on the same bag as their toys. My daughter felt very special, and would not get off the center spot where they sit. She just loved it! The bag is 36 inches in diameter. It is suitable for even toddler aged children. The bag is also PVC and BPA free. so no worries of harming your baby!
Turning the bag into a mat takes about 30 seconds, it’s super easy and fast. Turning the mat into a bag takes about 30 seconds as well. It was a little hard to pull the straps at first to turn it into a bag. I thought I was going to break it if I pulled too hard. But that is not the case. YOU will not break it, even if you are Super Man! (Okay I am sure Super Man could break it, but I had to add a little humor into my post.) The chances of the straps breaking are slim. So use those muscles, and pull….it gets easier as time goes on as well!
Okay, so babies are not meant to go in the bag, but I wanted to see if she could fit in there while we pulled the straps, and she did! So now you can get a feel of how big this really is! (It’s not overly big though. It’s a perfect size for all!)
The Toy Nanny has a thick water resistant outer covering. (The design part) I don’t know how many times I put a blanket on the grass at the park and it gets soaking wet from the grass. This water resistant thing was a good plan! On a side note, the Toy Nanny is machine washable. Making life easy for those bags, that always seem to get dirty, no matter what you do.
This comes in 4 different other colors, you can see them here. They are all adorably cute!
The bag has 8…yes 8, Velcro pockets on the sides. This makes it easy access for the important things. For instance, if you were going to the park, and didn’t want to take your diaper bag, so you pile the toys in your Toy Nanny, and you can use the pockets to put your wallet and keys. It’s perfect.
The one thing I didn’t like so much was the metal clips. These clips are there to make sure that the play mat is completely flat. You undo the clips when it’s in the form of the play mat. When it’s the tote bag, you clip them to hold the straps together. The only thing is that the metal clips end up resting on your shoulder, so it does dig a little into your shoulder, if you have tons of toys in there.
Now that you know about the features of the Toy Nanny, I’m going to share with you my favorites!
1. The 8 Velcro pockets for pretty much ANYTHING!
2. The super cute, chic, styling, bag designs they have.
3. The fact that it turns from a tote into a play mat. That is just totally awesome!
4. Machine washable. You for sure know a Mom invented this. She knows that kids LOVE to get messy, and everything around it.
Those are my favorite features of the Toy Nanny. As I said before, if you are a Mom on the go, this is a must have! If I didn’t have it, I would for sure make sure I had one, as it is on my my essentials now!
