Ruby and Ginger The Original Nappy Purse Review

Ruby and Ginger is a company run by Liz Rhodes and Brenda Farnhill. They originally set up the company in 2009 after becoming first time mums and it was named after their first children.

This lovely twosome appeared on Dragons Den in early 2012 and have since gone from strength to strength. Their products are available in 100 retail outlets and online across the UK and Europe.

I was sent their Original Nappy Purse & change mat to test. There are three colours you can choose from, Berries, Funky Flower and Wallpaper. I was asked which one I would like and I chose Berries.

True to their word, this a stylish yet innovative product which fits nicely into the modern parents lifestyle. Measuring at a small 27cm x 19cm x 3.5cm, it comes complete with a change mat and a free refillable wipes case.

Made out of 100% cotton, the material is both water and dirt resistant, as well as washable at 30 degrees, making it both appealing to the eye and practical. The change mat also made of the same material is backed in a soft towelling, perfect for your little ones skin.

Being a user of both cloth nappies and disposable nappies, I had the chance to see how practical the nappy purse was for both.

As you can see from the top picture, when using cloth nappies, I was able to fit in one birth to potty nappy, two washable wipes, a spray bottle of water and the changing mat, so probably only suitable to use for quick trips out rather than a full day if you wanted to take the purse ot by itself. However if you are placing the purse in a changing bag you can always pop another couple of nappies in the changing bag.

The bottom picture shows that when using disposable nappies I managed to fit in 3 nappies, the refillable wipes case and the changing mat, a lot more than with the cloth nappies. What I love is that unlike a changing bag, this nappy purse doesn't become heavy.

The nappy purse has a handle on one side so that you can take it out by itself, there is even a pocket inside to put your keys of phone. It can be placed under a pushchair, or because of the handle if, you can have it on the handle of your pushchair, it can go in a changing bag as shown here in my Miracle Box changing bag review or even in your handbag, as shown by the picture below.

And if that wasn't enough, you can even use it as a clutch bag for going out if you wanted to, so even when you no longer need to use nappies, it won't be left to get dusty in a cupboard somewhere!!!!

Priced at £20.00, I think it is great value for money. Although not as ideal for a cloth nappy user, I would still recommend it to all mums because it can not only be used for baby things, it is a treat for mummy too. If I am honest I am tempted to buy the other two designs because as I have said before, a girl can never have too many bags.
