#Giveaway Summer Fun with Ju-Ju-Be's Tokidoki Iconic 2.0 bags

One thing I never could have predicted before I had my first child was how personal my relationship with my diaper bag would be.  If you don’t have kids, that might sound weird, but that diaper bag was a part of everyday life.  Of course, I was nervous about venturing out with that tiny new person (who was generally in a crabby mood, btw) and having all the little necessities at hand gave me just that extra bit of confidence I needed.  From baby’s first mobile mega-blow-out (of course while being shown off at Grandma’s office) to our first international trip, I quickly learned to what to pack and having a great bag helped me actually be able to find things when I needed them.  I’ll admit that the diaper bag I put on my baby registry was not the right bag and was soon replaced with a quality bag from Ju-Ju-Be.


The folks at Ju-Ju-Be are masters at designing bags for moms on the move.  They know what we need and incorporate those great features into every bag.  They also know that, although having a diaper bag is a day-to-day necessity, moms need options to reflect both personal style and occasion, so they have designed bags that incorporate the full spectrum from classical sophistication to more whimsical styles.  I was so excited to get the opportunity to review the latest pattern that just launched in May 2018 from Ju-Ju-Be’s partnership with Tokidoki, the Tokidoki Iconic 2.0.  This limited release design is so cheerful and absolutely perfect for the mom that likes to be on the edge of pop culture without sacrificing quality and functionality.  As usual, Ju-Ju-Be has made all of their iconic bag designs available in this new pattern.


Meredith, the MommyKatie baby blogger, and I were lucky enough to preview four quality Ju-Ju-Be bags in the Tokidoki Iconic 2.0 pattern.  Do check out the detailed vlog reviews for these bags on MommyKatie’s YouTube channel as well, but here are some highlights:


The B.F.F.  This is one of the most popular Ju-Ju-Be designs and was actually the first Ju-Ju-Be bag I bought for myself over 4 years ago. I felt a little guilty when I initially splurged on that bag, but once I received it and realized how perfect it was, I knew it was a great value.  Four years (and multiple international trips) later, the bag still looks brand new.  I love the thoughtful placement of the many interior pockets and the awesome wide opening that allows you to actually *see* what’s in the bag.  Of course, Ju-Ju-Be’s Teflon coated materials and easy washability helped keep it looking new.  The versatility of being able to switch between backpack straps and a shoulder/crossbody strap made the B.F.F work in so many environments. Meredith loved the B.F.F in the new Tokidoki Iconic 2.0 pattern and found it perfect for her recent family vacation with her 2 older sons and 4-month old daughter.  Here’s a quote:  “The quality design of the B.F.F. said ‘responsible mom’, but the cheerful Tokidoki Iconic 2.0 pattern said “ edgy trendsetter”.  Just because I drive a minivan doesn’t mean I’ve totally given up on fashion!”

The Be Right Back: I chose to test this bag out while on a beach vacation with my sons recently.  Poor Mr. MommyKatie had to stay home and work, so I was on my own for the flights and keeping everything at hand for the kids was important.  I loved the more traditional backpack styling which was really comfortable and kept my hands free for managing luggage and holding little hands through airports.  Since there are no more diapers in our house (yeah!), I replaced the changing pad with my iPad and loved the easy access that the large stash pocket provided from the side of the bag.  The other awesome feature I love about this bag is the very large stash pocket at the top of the bag.  This was perfect for keeping snacks and items I wanted close at hand on the flight without having to remove the whole bag from the underseat storage.  Of course, like all Ju-Ju-Be bags, it has all the pockets and storage compartments to keep yourself organized and the essentials close at hand.  My video review is on YouTube here.


The Ju-Ju-Be Be Right Back is an incredibly versatile diaper bag!


The Be Packed: My 7-year old son has claimed this bag for himself.  He loves the Tokidoki Iconic 2.0 pattern and the bags smaller profile makes it perfect for him.  He’s been wearing it to school for the past few weeks and loved taking it on vacation. It’s going to be a great back-to-school bag for him in the Fall as well.  I am glad it has the Teflon coating and machine washability!  You can watch my video review of this bag and comparison with the Be Right Back on YouTube here.


The Be Packed is the perfect Back-To-School backpack!

The Be Set: This set of three bags in varying sizes (plus 2 different strap options) has been surprisingly versatile and the source of many compliments on my recent vacation. The large bag with the crossbody strap is my new weekend favorite and was perfect for carrying my large iPhone 8+ and a few essentials.  The Tokidoki Iconic 2.0 pattern works great in this smaller format as well.  I used the smallest bag as a mini-wallet, but it would work great as a mini first aid kit too.  The medium size bag was great for our first aid kit on vacation, but I’ve already morphed it into my new travel makeup bag.  Watch my YouTube review here!


The Be Set from Ju-Ju-Be is a super versatile set of 3 bags and 2 interchangeable straps.

  

I’m so happy Meredith and I were able to review the newest Tokidoki pattern in the Ju-Ju-Be line up.  If you are on the fence about buying a Ju-Ju-Be bag, I’d encourage you to make the leap. You will love the bag and it will hold up for all your outings (with or without baby!).

We are also excited to be able to partner with our friends at Ju-Ju-Be to offer one of our wonderful readers a chance to win a combination of the B.F.F and the Be Right Back bags:

    I like all of them. But the BFF is my favorite. I used a BFF when I had a baby, but I’d still totally use it if it was a print that was more “me” like the Tokidoki. Someone got me one that was gender neutral as a shower gift. I want one like this to hook on to the back of my wheelchair.
