Rated 3 out of 5 by emarsh so cute but kinda small
I LOVE PPB - they have to most beautiful bags. this one is a good "on the go" to keep in your car or for a quick outing. has lots of pockets & it can fit a couple diapers, wipes case, a bottle, snack, bib/burp cloth but not much more. living in the city, i usually need my own water bottle, snack, wallet, keys & even a little cardigan or blanket for baby. its just not big enough for ALL of that.
beautiful bag if you dont have too much to carry around!

Rated 3 out of 5 by moonrose2715 Pretty, but not the most functional
I have the PPB touring tote in a different pattern. I love PPB's bags. They are truly beautiful. If style is your primary concern, then they are an excellent choice. However, if you are thinking about functionality (which in my opinion is much more important once the baby is actually here), then this is not a great choice. The bottom is larger than the top which means things get lost in the bottom. There are a number of pockets on the inside, but when you only have one hand available (usually the case in babyland) it is helpful to have more external pockets to grab those quickly needed items (phone, keys, pacifiers, etc).
I think if my daughter was a little older before I got pregnant again, I probably could have gone back to using this bag, but it definitely will not work for two in diapers for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VanessaP Perfect Pattern, Perfect Size
From the pictures, the black look blacker and the greens more electric, but you can rest assured that when your Dancing In Dublin tote arrives, it's nowhere near as vibrant as the picture shows. In fact, it's as laid back and comfy feeling as a pair of your favorite jeans.
I have the D.I.D. print in the Touring Tote, the Boxy Backpack, and the Stroller Blanket, and I love them all. The Touring Tote is my go-to bag: It holds 4-5 diapers and wipes, a change of clothes for baby, mommy's stuff, a cell phone, keys, wallet, etc. I never use the changing pad that comes with the bag, so the entire back pocket makes a terrific place for all my belongings, leaving the larger pocket for baby's things.
You might think this is significantly smaller than the Boxy Backpack, but the size isn't that different. With the Boxy, almost everything settles to the bottom, so you're constantly digging around trying to find that specific thing. The Touring Tote keeps it all at about the same level, so you're rifling through less levels. I'm sure if you're more organized than me, it's not really an issue.
