Fashionable Bags from Built NY

Want function and fashion in a bag? Built NY has designed several that will appease your taste. Their products are unique because it is made out of neoprene (the wetsuit material) which is very durable. You can roll it, fold it or throw it. Also, we love that it is machine washable and affordably priced.

See below the great products they offer:

Minimal and sleek, Built NY’s award winning lunch tote is high design at it’s best. Winner of the Gold Prize 2005 Idea Industrial Design Awards, it is the most perfect lunch bag you’ll ever own. It actually opens into a placemat and insulates food and drink separately. ($19.99 - $22.99)

This Thirsty tote has convenient carrying handles that snap to strollers, car seats, diaper bags, or whatever else is handy. It stretches to fit baby bottles, juice boxes and sippy cups. ($8.99)

The Built NY Comfy Bibs™ (0-1 year) and Tidy Bibs™ (1-2 years) have an absorbent, soft and machine-washable surface, and a waterproof inner layer that keeps moisture from seeping through. The Built NY Tidy Bib also has a crumb-catcher that is held in place by velcro tabs and can be undone for easy cleaning.($4.99)

Three sizes and three mod colors—black, blue and stripes. One brilliant design for all your electronics needs. Protect your Blackberry™, iPod™, digital camera, PDA, cell phones in these fleece-lined neoprene pockets. No more fishing around in handbags at the movies. Tie one on! These are designed to attach to bags, belts and backpacks like a luggage tag, these pockets are perfect for travel. Color code your electronic devices and be one step closer to a life of organization and clarity! ($14.99 - $17.99)

Best of all, as it conforms to the size of your computer, its unique bone shape creates an instant built-in bumper system for extra protection at the corners. ($69.99)

Composed of extra-thick durable neoprene, it cushions and protects your laptop for maximum protection and safely slides in and out of your briefcase or luggage with ease. Perfect for business travelers and urban nomads alike. Best of all, slide it in and as it conforms to the size of your computer, its unique bone shape creates an instant built-in bumper system for extra protection.

Springtime fun with Sleepy Head Bunny!

Koo Koo Bear Sleepy Head Bunny is the softest plush bunny I have ever seen! It is available in either pink or blue and wears a cute matching slumber suit and hat.

The very cool thing about Koo Koo Bear Kids is their commitment to customers and belief that presentation truly makes a gift special. These soft bunnies will arrive packaged in the company's signature yellow box with a matching grosgrain ribbon bow. You can choose to have custom embroidery done on the bunny's ear or include a personal message - which will be handwritten by one of their staff.

Brianna absolutely loves cuddling her new Sleepy Head Bunny and enjoys playtime with it everyday. This week she has even started to make a habit of taking it to bed with her when she goes "night night." I really like the fact that her bunny is easy to clean because it is machine washable. It is also infant safe and the winner of the Oppenhein Toy Portfolio Gold Seal.

These beautiful bunnies come in two sizes: the large bunny is 22" long and is priced at $45 and the medium bunny is 15" long and is priced at $25.

So, hurry up and give your child (or someone you know) a wonderful springtime gift - the adorable Koo Koo Bear Sleepy Head Bunny!
