I never thought of there - may look on their website now.

If you're in London they are sold on lots of those road-side stalls that also sell souvenirs etc. I got one for £1.50 in Ikea! Also a better one from GLTC.

Anyone know of any nice ones online??

oooggs Sat 29-Jan-05 18:16:10

Mothercare didn't have any online and have found several Thomas ones but none that will be here by Wednesday. Off to Plymouth on Saturday shopping. Sorry that is my closest city, nowhere near London

Oh, I was thinking of mini-adult ones IYSWIM. Not the kiddie ones with characters on, have bought those in Woollies before.

oooggs Sat 29-Jan-05 18:39:58

Well Woolies it will be on Monday, I have looked on their websire, but no luck.

Debenhams and Boots have a sale with the samsonite rucksacks - They are lovely with either giraffe/turtle or ladybird designs.

Bought my dds one from Bitz - it was only £1. Is pink with fairies on. Very pretty.

DS1 has one of these which he adores! We call it his "special bag"!

Mumbojumbo that is the bestest bag I have seen. Loved it so much that I have just ordered DS one. Thankyou very much.

Davros Sun 30-Jan-05 18:23:55

Fantastic bag mumbojumbo! Wish we didn't already have a house full of them! DS also has a Kipling sort-of ruck sack for sports which is nice.

Glad to help!

I ordered one for DS2 when he was about 3 months old! He's 14 months old now and walking!

oooggs Mon 31-Jan-05 14:03:14

DS is 13mths old and starts nursery 16 hours per week from this Wednesday - just waiting impatiently for it to arrive.
