I bought my Freshly Picked Diaper Bag back in August 2017 when they launched their Kickstarter campaign. I waited three months before I got my hands on my bag and it’s been 7 months since I’ve received it.
To start, I wanted to let everyone know that this post is not sponsored! I purchased this bag with my own hard earned money and simply wanted to share my thoughts on the diaper bag since it has officially made its way into Canada. PLUS, I keep getting asked about it.
Freshly Picked Diaper Bag Review
I have owned the Lily Jade as well as the Fawn Design Diaper bags. Both great diaper bag options.
It’s been about 3 years since I owned the Lily Jade and 2 years since I owned the Fawn Design. I still have both hanging in my closet, however, the zipper on my Fawn kept coming off and I was tired of fixing it. Lily Jade strap started to fray after some wear and tear (its been through two different owners and back to me) so I don’t blame it.
You can find my Lily Jade below:
Back to the Freshly Picked diaper bag.
First, love the design, love the colour options and really love that it is a backpack style. I own the “Butterscotch” Colour.
- Vegan Leather
- Great quality
- you can wear it three ways ( I prefer the backpack way for handsfree)
- 100% wipeable and spill resistant interior and exterior
- Magnetic front flap
- Metal “feet” on the bottom so your bag so doesn’t touch the ground
- Comes with a changing Pad
- Tons of Pockets
Overall, I would say that the biggest con for me would be the price.
If I hadn’t bought the freshly picked diaper bag via Kickstarter, I wouldn’t have bought it at all. When I bought it, I bought a bundle and received a pair of Freshly Picked Moccs, a Freshly Picked Tumblr & Straw, as well as, the Freshly Picked Diaper Bag.
The regular USD price converted to CAD plus shipping and customs brings the total to almost $300. NO thank you.
With that being said, I do know a shop that is local to us in British Columbia and you can purchase it for $230! That’s a great deal considering all the above
We all have different styles and looking for different things when it comes to a diaper bag. Freshly Picked is newer to the game (less than a-year-old) and you have to pre-order and wait 6-8 weeks once you purchase it. If you are willing to do that then purchase the Freshly Picked Diaper Bag.
Keep in mind that unless you have PO box big enough to fit a diaper bag (or if you are willing to travel across the border to avoid customs charges) expect to pay $35-$45 dollars in customs.
Most of my favourite diaper bag brands are in the USA. and I, unfortunately, don’t have a PO BOX so I’m usually stuck with paying those darn custom charges.
So what do you think? Did you want me to do a comparison between all three? Let me know in the comments!
