My husband surprised me with the duffel & tote last week. I immediately put them to use as knitting bags. The tote is a great size for most smaller-than-a-blanket projects with plenty of room for knitting/crocheting tools, multiple skeins, the pattern book, and my phone/headphones for listening to an audiobook or podcast while I work. The duffel bag, however, is without question the finest blanket-sized knitting solution I have ever tried. It has plenty of room for the skeins & tools, as well as for the increasingly giant blanket being built. In the past, I had been forced to use a giant plastic bin to store my yarn & blanket-in-progress. The duffel bag is both much more fun and much easier to tote up and down the stairs. Plus it has dinosaurs! Hence, the Joy in a Bag 5 - star rating. :)
Why did the postal service hold this bag hostage over the holidays. Nevertheless it's here, it's huge and it's mine, all mine! Beautiful construction, lining is amazing. I love these dinos so much, lining is beautiful. I shall lord it over friends and family forever, or until the cat gets back into it and refuses to get out.
I received my bag from Fedex yesterday. What fantastic colors inside and out. Did not realize the variety of the dinosaurs dashing for their lives on their bicycles. So sturdy but will not fit my 50 pound hunting dog very well but he thinks it makes a comfy pillow. So happy I purchased this ( the dog actually got it for me for my birthday as he heard me sighing over such beautiful bags). Am waiting to see what else the future holds. Thanks for all the thrills!
This is a great tote! Not only is the fabric fun, but the bag itself is light and sturdy. It has an outside pocket big enough for my keys, which I love since I can never find them. The handles are great and fit comfortably on my shoulder. I love that there are lots of different kinds of dinosaurs riding the penny-farthing. If you are attracted to this bag, you will not be disappointed. Baby Yoda hand sanitizer sold separately. Keep up the good work Don and crew of bring us fun items to add to our china purchases!
I bought the larger duffle, big enough to comfortably fit my disgruntled pet! Based on his rude review I'll save the bag for toting my things inside, no dogs, cats or gerbils may enter. I love it, it's big, roomy, adorable and very well constructed... I recommend it to you with no reservations!
I needed to purchase this for my daughter as a gift (hope she doesn’t see this). She is a BMX rider at 28! She has an affinity for the T-Rex so this bag was a win all around. Love the detail and the tote itself!
I need fear no asteroids, for my Dinos on bikes are with me! Prepare for the apocalypse: The duffel bag easily fits two sets of queen sheets and two blankets, with plenty of room for a wine bottle with bottle opener and stoppers, a bag of chips and chip clips, and other essentials. Not into the apocalypse? You can help set up friend in temporary lodgings. Bonus: when it’s empty, your cat will take up residence.
My tote bag is so wonderful. I can use it to haul yarn or projects, which is what occupies it presently. I can sit and meditate on all the little dinosaurs running away from the falling meteors, which they can't actually see, meteors being on the inside. It appears to be well-made, another bonus feature! I highly recommend the tote for design and practicality, as well as jolly good fun! BTW, the tote is very roomy, with handy pockets inside and out.
I received both of my bags. They are perfect. I love everything about them, from the color to the dinosaurs and don't forget the meteors. I am never disappointed in Calamityware.
