- Giraffe print

One of the important things that you should know is that many of the bags we reviewed had the word “print” in their description and they are not really print in the true sense of the word. In this article we have looked at the best selling and most popular in this particular category, rather than get distracted by some of the manufacturer’s tentative descriptions.
Carter’s Monkey Print BagThis one for under $30 is one of the most popular choices and it is rated 4.6 out of 5 stars by actual Amazon buyers. That makes it a high quality bag, and yes if you like the monkey style of print, this will be right on the mark. There is no doubt that it looks as cute as can be, and is tastefully finished with a neat little luggage tag, in the shape of a monkey’s head.
It is made from polyester and has 9 pockets and comes with a matching changing pad, stroller loops and has a couple of pockets for bottles as well. It is from a very good brand and all the buyers stated that it was a good sized bag that held everything they needed. it measures 15 x 12 x 6.5 and that is a nice size and a good width, which of course is important.
Carters Dot PrintThis is another choice from Carters and is slightly more expensive at around $40. if you like “dots” then this is a very pretty choice. Made from 100% polyester, this very fashionable printed bag has a grey background color with pink polka dots. If you like a bag that is a cut above the rest, then this will be a really good choice as in terms of style, it looks really good.
It isn’t just about style though as it needs to be durable and practical to be on any list that I would recommend. This one has stroller loops, a matching changing pad and although a little smaller than I would like, is still big enough to be able to hold the things that you need to have with you.
It is also very well made and is ideal for Moms. (I am not sure if Dad would be willing to carry this around a Mall though)
Anchor Printed BagsIf you like the nautical look, then anchor prints are probably a good choice for you. I have to be honest enough to say they are not my own personal choice, but many people do love this particular look. There are a few to pick from and this one is the best of the bunch that are out there at the minute.
It is a quilted classic navy and white option that does have a certain “classy” look to it as you can see from the image. It is small though at 12 x 12 x 5″ but does come with a number of key features such as pockets, changing pad etc. This would make a good gift for someone who has gone for a nautical theme.
No question it looks good and will certainly hold enough, even though is appears initially to be small. If it is the shipping or navy style theme that Mom is looking for, then this one will tick all the boxes.
Zebra Print Bags
Different manufacturers make these animal print style of bags and “zebra” seems to be a popular choice for many ladies. There is no doubt that they are “striking” so if you want your diaper bag to be seen, then this one will make sure that happens. Once again I am not a huge fan of these, but I have friends who love them. At the end of the day it all comes down to personal choice.
The best reviewed and rated of all these “zebra print bags” is the tote version from you guessed it Carters. This one really does tick all the boxes in terms of look and quality. It attracts a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars and it probably doesn’t get much better than that.
It is made from polyester and comes with the changing pad and measures 20 x 12.5 x 8″ so this is a big bag that holds more than you will ever need. Here is one typical review:

cutest bag ever
By steph on December 13, 2011
I fell in love when I saw this bag. No store around here had one like it, and I’m glad I paid for it. Worth it for sure!
Leopard Print BagsThere are many types of leopard print bags and designs so you will be spoiled for choice. If this type of print is your choice then you can get leopard and cheetah. Just be aware that some use a white background and others use like a pale yellow. I think the white makes the print stand out better, but the more traditional is this paler yellow almost beige color.
I have included a backpack style for this one as it looks really well and is well rated. This bag not only looks really well in this type of print, but it is really practical and hard wearing. For those who like their backpacks, this one is waterproof and that makes it particularly useful.
It has 4 interior pockets and also has a useful insulated pocket.
These are just a few selections from the many printed style of bags that are available. As I mentioned at the beginning just be aware of some of the descriptions as they can be highly misleading.
