What Lovedbyparents say:
We were so excited to hear that iCandy had brought out a new changing bag range and knew that they would deliver nothing short of something spectacular. Already a leading brand with a number of stylish pushchair collections, we couldn’t wait to see the new changing bag range.
The iCandy Emilia is ideal for the stylish mother or for any woman that loves bags and wants the convenience of a changing bag combined. It arrived in a beautiful iCandy box and the excitement was building as I lifted the lid and opened the tissue paper inside. T
ucked inside a soft cloth bag was the patent Emilia, ready to be loved.
The Royal colour stands out and has smooth, subtle iCandy branding. There are two main zips ontop of the bag which partition it into two separate parts. Ideal for separating nappies, wipes and everything else you carry around for your little one. There is a clear plastic, waterproof wallet inside which attaches to one side of the inside of the bag. I thought this was a very clever idea as if you wanted to take out the wallet on it’s own, you can. Ideal for quick trips out and about.
The design of the Emilia has been really well thought out. It is generous in size, allowing you to fit a change of clothes, nappies, wipes, food and toys inside. Along with your own personal belongings. There is a small magnetic pouch at the front of the bag which is ideal for keeping your mobile phone inside. It also comes with a generous strap which can be easily attached and detached. I found this to be really useful if I wanted to carry the bag over my shoulder.
I have used the Emilia now for 3 weeks and whilst I have been inspecting every detail, I can conclude that it has been an absolute joy to carry around. It fits everything inside and can easily double up as an actual handbag. I have been stopped countless times by admirers asking where they can purchase one.
This is a bag that can be used long after you need a changing bag. It is more than a bag, it is something that makes me smile every time I look at it.
And i’m clearly not the only one who thinks so!
