That's a whole lot of drive time! Then you factor in the flights, trains, buses and more and it is clear that traveling has become just as much a part of the holiday season as turkeys, twinkling lights, eggnog and wrapping presents.
And, when it comes to traveling, whether for the holidays or simply running to the grocery store, having high quality, stylish, versatile storage solutions can make a big difference. A cheap suitcase seems like a way to save money... but typically ends up with a lost wheel, broken zipper and not enough space. Similarly, a baby-themed diaper bag might work well when you have an infant, but ends up discarded once you've passed that stage.
Instead, it is easy to make traveling easy and extremely fashionable thanks to the wide range of travel solutions for the whole family from Lassig distributed by HABA!
With a goal to design beautiful and functional products and to manufacture them sustainably using non-toxic and environmentally-friendly components, Germany-based Lassig products are extremely stylish, easy to care for, durable and comfortable. They even utilize recycled and organic materials in many products, proudly combining innovation, fashion and safety.
Packing for a flight to Grandma's for a week? The rolling Wildlife Trolley from Lassig helps make things easier! Little ones will love venturing around the train station or airport with luggage just like the grown-ups, as this suitcase includes wheels, a telescoping pull handle, plenty of pockets, a carrying handle and more! Can these get much cuter?
Or maybe you're packing for a day trip and want to look good while on the go — who doesn't? Lassig's City Shopper Tote Bag provides tons of space (there are so many pockets, nooks and compartments) for organized storage while it can be carried easily over your shoulder or clipped right to a stroller.
At the same time that this tote works perfectly as a diaper bag (and comes with accessories such as a changing mat and insulated bottle holder), it clearly has a gorgeous sleek and stylish look that can be used long after the diapers are gone!
I love the idea of buying one unique, high quality, ultra-fashionable, extremely versatile handbag that can be used pre-baby, throughout childhood, and then beyond that essentially transforms to meet the needs of women through all of the stages of their life. Why get a diaper bag that screams Baby! when you're not going to want to carry it after your baby has grown up?
Instead, I'm thrilled to have been introduced to a diaper bag that not only has room for all of baby's needs but is also incredibly chic and even eco-friendly. Lassig's Green Label Neckline Bag has it all!
No matter if you're focused on form, function, ease of use or simply a modern, uncomplicated look, Lassig has managed to put all of that (plus more) into the Green Label Neckline Bag. Made out of recycled plastic bottles (how cool is that?!), this bag the perfect combination of stylishly eye-catching, lightweight durability, and attention to detail.
From the moment the Neckline Bag in the Black Melange color options (there are four total) arrived, I couldn't stop running my hands over it!
I adore the modern simplicity of this bag and, when it came to designing a way to travel fashionably smart, Lassig did just that. The Neckline Bag includes pockets galore, both inside and outside, that result in your possessions being easily accessible while still staying perfectly secure.
Even before I had unzipped the main compartment, I was admiring the large insulated outer pocket that would be great for keeping food items stored and the four 'bonus' compartments at the base of each handle. No more digging around for my sunglasses, keys, a pen, my phone or more with these pockets right there waiting for me!
However, as much as I was impressed with the outside of the Neckline Bag, then I opened it up and felt my love grow even further!
Lassig not only included great accessories (e.g. a water-repellent, padded changing mat; an insulated, removable bottle holder with clip; hooks to attach it directly to stroller handles; an additional, adjustable shoulder strap, and a removable zipper pouch)...
...but there is no shortage of storage space as well.
Need to stash a wet bathing suit after your trip to the beach? Use the water-repellent wet pocket. Want easy access to wet wipes to clean up all sorts of sticky messes while traveling? There is a dedicated compartment for baby wipes so you'll never search for them. There is even a removable compartment designed to hold baby food jars so that this bag can transition into soft foods right along with your little one!
All in all, I have yet to find a reason that the Green Label Neckline Bag wouldn't be the perfect travel bag.
While we've all seen handbags that have claimed to be multifunctional, this one truly conveys the concept of sustainability and, with its appealing unique shape, will easily transform to work for all of the different needs that women have and which role in our lives we are in. No matter if you're traveling near or far, Lassig has transformed what was once a mundane diaper bag into a chic and fashionable tote, whether you're using it with kids or not!
Although this bag does have a higher price tag than the diaper bags that you might find in the store (it retails for $169.99), it is clear that the Neckline Bag isn't just going to serve as a diaper bag but as a go-to bag for all occasions.
Plus, the high quality of Lassig items ensure that they are going to last a lifetime and the stylish convenience that they will add to your life (or that of your extremely lucky recipient, if given as a gift) is something you'll never want to live without.
It isn't any wonder to me that the one and only HABA would distribute this and all of Lassig's travel solutions to the U.S., as their eco-conscious approach to manufacturing and their focus on values, creative product design, and functional engineering make them a perfect pairing.

Other than the Lassig Green Label Neckline Bag that I was provided by HABA in order to facilitate my review, I was not compensated or enticed to do this post in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion about this company and product.
