C.D. from Michigan City, Indiana
I bought this tote bag as a special gift for a teacher whose classroom theme is "For Every Child, A Better World." The design is actually inspired by Disney's "It's a Small World," so I thought that it would be appropriate for her. The bag is cute, and the stitching is lovely. However, the bag is definitely not worth the price, and I am completely disappointed with it. I should never have assumed that since it is a tote bag, it would be durable. On the contrary, it actually comes with a note tucked inside one of its pockets stating how delicate the bag is and that it must be handled with thorough care! In my humble opinion, a tote bag should be more durable, especially such an expensive one. I understand that the outside design deserves special attention, but I do not even know what could be carried inside this tote bag because the interior lining is way too fragile -- maybe, it could handle a soft piece of clothing
or a sheet of paper! Had I been able to watch the video of this bag now posted on this Web site, I probably would have noticed that it was such a delicate item. I am glad that I bought a well-intentioned present for the teacher, but I definitely should have stuck to another brand like Vera Bradley
, whose bags
are always strongly made, reasonably priced, and are completely useable for their intended purposes.
