Changing bags are not what they used to be. No longer do we associate them with bulky, unattractive holdalls. They are more practical and definitely more stylish.
I was offered the chance to review a simply beautiful bag from isoki and I definitely could not refuse.
Isoki are an Australian brand offering stylish changing bags and clutches. There are varying styles, in different colours and to be honest, on first glance, you would never think any of them were changing bags!
I chose a Madam Polly in avalon and this retails at £99.99. Now this bag isn’t my usual style. I’m a bit of a sucker for all things bright and colourful and my previous changing bags have been pink! However, what is not to love about the bag below?
If you look inside there are three separate inner compartments with lots if space. This is perfect for an overnight stay (to be honest I’ll be using it without the children!!).
These are the features as specified online:
• Stylish, multi-pocketed, changing bag
• Several large secure pockets including an easy access front pocket with zipper
• Removable storage bag, perfect for holding nappies, wipes and creams for those quick trips out and about
• Removable, insulated bottle and snack bag
• Large, easy wipe, padded change mat
• Adjustable shoulder strap

This bag is just stunning. I adore the colour. Many people have commented and said they would use it as a normal oversized bag. A couple were surprised it was a changing bag. I think this really is a key feature, as as much as we love being parents most of the time, we all want a bit of Mum-style!
I really like the three compartments and how spacious it is. You can really organise each section for food, changing bits and even a section for your bits and bobs. The pattern of the inside of the bag is also really bright and eye catching; I love the big florals.
I also like the practicality of the buggy straps. Sometimes when I used the large bag strap on previous changing bags, it just falls down and this can be a bit frustrating. The buggy straps provided on this Isoki bag means this does not happen.
Overall I was really impressed with this changing bag. It combines practicality, which is what we all need as a parent, space AND style. All really important things when picking a changing bag.
I felt really confident using it and would definitely recommend.
