Dd has a tiny shoulder bag which she stuffs with various lip balms and a purse. It's too small for a book which means whenever we go out I end up taking her stuff.

Any suggestions for a nice bigger bag for her that's fairly cheap? She prefers a shoulder or cross body bag rather than a rucksack.

How cheap is cheap? My dd has a cath kinston one which is a good size for a book, colouring book, small pencil case and a few other

She also has a super dry mini messenger bag which is a good size too.

I'm looking for the same thing for my 8.5yo. She's at the age where she likes to carry bits and pieces with her but not a giant rucksack full. But anything I've come up with is tiny. There must be decent sized cross body bags out there somewhere!

I was thinking about up to about £20 but might pay a bit more.

My older two dds have Kipling shoulder bags, they were presents, are they quite expensive?

DD has a mini Roxy rucksack, though I see you don't want a rucksack.

The Cath Kidston one is a good size and shape but dd hates anything flowery!

More expensive, but I have an eastpak messenger bag that fits a normal sized book and a 7 inch tablet. They come in loads of different colours and patterns

River Island sell nice bags for girls that look like smaller versions of women's styles []]

I found a plain cross body bag in eBay (sold as a travel / mobile phone one, I think) for about £6 then personalised it with a Hogwarts badge (also ebay) to make it a bit more child friendly. So I would suggest having a look at eBay.

I bought my dd one from tescos last summer. Was in the kids section but it's a good size and can fit purse, water bottle or umbrella, and kindle etc in it. It's still going well over a year later so maybe have a look around the supermarkets too?

My two have Animal bags that are a good size and about £20

Thanks, River Island may be a possibility although it's hard to tell from the pictures how big the cross body ones are.

Ebay won't work unfortunately, dd is VERY fussy so I think we need to see it before buying or it will be a hassle to return.

goble do you have a link to the Animal bags? Thanks for all the suggestions.

My DD has a lovely bag with matching from Fat Face similar to this:

How about these?

My fav is the Joules one. smile

At the moment, Next has £20 off when you spend £50 online.

Let me know if you require a free voucher

Reporting back as we are still hunting!

Definitely not flowers or spots or any other prints really. She doesn't like Kipling in any of the colours.

I think what she wants is a leather or leather look type bag. Something from River Island or Next may fit the bill, will have another look there.

Thanks for all the suggestions smile
