It’s not often that I’m sent a product that continues to make me go “wow” long after receiving it, but the Pink Lining Wanderlust Rucksack does just that.
At the end of November I was perusing the Pink Lining website and noticed that they had a new print; Bumble bees and Stardust. Yes that’s right – the bag was covered in bumble bees! How perfect?! I was sold! So when Pink Lining offered me the chance to review one of their beautiful bags, well, how could I refuse?
I chose to review a rucksack as opposed to one of their regular changing bags for two reasons. 1) We already own a beautiful “Yummy Mummy” bag and 2) With Busby almost toddling I thought a rucksack would be more convenient.
My initial thoughts on the Pink Lining Wanderlust bag were mixed; I was head over heels in love with the pattern, but my head was fretting that the bag might be too big, and as a rather clumsy, accident prone person, I envisaged horrible things happening to precious possessions around the antique shops of Lewes. However, as I got to know the Wanderlust rucksack more, the more I fell in love.
Why? I hear you cry! Is it not just a rucksack? No – it is not just a rucksack. It’s a rucksack that Mary Poppins wishes she had.
The Wanderlust rucksack has three very spacious pockets.
I have been using the back pocket for toys on the go (books, rattles etc) and my things (purse, keys and even the iPad).
The middle pocket has been great for nappy changing goods; the bag comes with a fabulous changing mat and waterproof purse, also a change of clothes.
Then the wondrous front pocket! The front pocket is insulated, so fabulous for food! It also comes with a detachable insulated bottle holder – perfect!
Then, if that wasn’t enough space, you have two pockets on the side of the bag – we store bubbles and my water in these.
The inside of the bag is fully lined in the beautiful wipe-clean, pink lining that Pink Lining are known for. The outside is also wipe-clean and can withstand a short shower, but not a full on storm!
The Pink Lining Wanderlust rucksack is simply wonderful and I would happily recommend it to anyone! I can see it becoming more and more useful the older Busby gets.
The Wanderlust rucksack comes in different prints and costs £89. It’s available to buy on the Pink Lining website.
