If you have been in the computer section of a store or are a Kleen Kanteen lover you have seen BUILT NYC products even if you didn’t realize it. They make their products out of neoprene, that material they make scuba wet suits out of, so it is stain resistant and insulates up to 4 hours (depending on external temperatures). Their products are PVC and vinyl free and are also tested for lead so that you can purchase their products rest assured that they are safe for your family.
Did you know that they have a whole line dedicated to Baby gear? From bibs to changing pads, they’ve got more than just the Thirsty Totes you may have heard of before. You can get a diaper bag, Thirsty Tote (note: the Thirsty Totes from the baby line have a snap closure handle so you can put it around a diaper bag handle or stroller etc.) I had the opportunity to review the Double Thirsty Tote from the Baby line as well as the Tasty Lunch Tote which is similar to the Gourmet Getaway bag from the baby line. Check out their full Baby line here.
We love that the handle of the Double Thirsty Tote, like the Single Thirsty Tote, snaps to anything we need to hang it on to and that it hold 2 bottles, sippy cups or juice boxes. Whatever we need to take on-the-go. This would also be great if you had two kids and you could keep both of their drinks in one place. I can wipe minor spills or messes off with a damp cloth and it’s great that I can throw it in the washing machine when necessary (caution: do NOT put it in the dryer).
The Tasty Lunch Tote was awesome on the go. I threw a drink, some cheese, snacks and even a toy and book in it and took it to go. My daughter loved carrying it around as well and quickly learned that it was where the snacks were! There are no pockets or dividers on the inside, however, so keep this in mind when you’re throwing food or beverages in it, but as long as they are in containers as they should be it should be fine. I think that the Bulldog Vine pattern for the Gourmet Getaway bag (slightly larger dimensions that the Lunch Tote) is TO DIE FOR! It is on my wishlist.

What else I would like to try:

I love my Totes and would definitely try other products in their different lines. I’d highly recommend the Thirsty Totes with the snap handle and a Lunch Tote or Gourmet Getaway bag for your lunch or goodies for the kiddos.
