Skip Hop Bento Ultimate Diaper Bag

by: Tina Buell, April 17 2014

Skip Hop Bento Ultimate Diaper Bag  - kids travel tips, kids activities tips
Over the years I've become addicted to strollers and diaper bags. However, since I'm not made of money, even though I'd love to own several, I can only afford to purchase one. So which one to choose? Tip: Don't decide purely on looks alone! I once bought a Trumpette baby bag purely because it said "Boy" on the side. Guess what? After a month the zipper broke. I called the company and they immediately shipped me a new bag, and then that zipper broke after a week! Sheesh! Skip Hop on the other hand, is top of class in every baby wielding category.
