Skip Hop Sends Love Via Messenger

Posted on: February 11, 2010

I made an impulse buy Tuesday – – a new diaper bag.  I already had a pretty good one from Fleurville that I’d picked up years ago in a second hand store, but I’d been finding it a bit cramped for both a baby and a toddler.

With Valentine’s Day looming, my defenses were down – – the Skip Hop Via Messenger (in a gorgeous green) was love at first sight.  The right bag at the right time.  8 months into baby #2, this mom is ready to tone down the happy prints and rediscover stylish functionality – Skip Hop’s forté.

All it took was a quick once-over to assess the must-have’s and appreciate the “more” – roomy interior with plenty of pockets, exterior cinch bags for easy access, lots of zippered compartments, dual magnetic closure, perfectly sized changing pad, and a smart urban look.

I bought my Via Messenger on Tuesday, and test-drove it Wednesday on my first coast-to-coast flight with the two kids.  It packed everything in and performed beautifully – especially at in-flight diaper change time, with the changing pad easily accessible and easy to manipulate with one hand.  I did notice a water spot the next day on the fabric from a wipe I’d balled up and shoved in the back “antimicrobial” pocket.  Seems like an easy fix, but leaves me wondering why they didn’t make it waterproof as well.

Skip Hop products can be found in finer stores everywhere.  Get Via Messenger at Oompa Toys for $78.99 and earn some reward points.
