We Heart Itzy Ritzy - Review and Giveaway


I've been meaning to review Itzy Ritzy for a while now because my 2 daughters have been enjoying their Snack Happened Reusable and Washable Snack Bags for a few months and we love them. My daughters each have a few of the prints and we mainly use them for school and daycare snacks and lunches. We have drastically cut back on the use of plastic wrap at our house and I feel way better sending them with litter-less lunches.

For school snacks and lunches, we use Snack Happened for sandwiches, quesadilla slices, grapes, apple slices, goldfish, veggies, crackers, cheese, etc. The bags have a waterproof lining and a zipper. They are very easy for the girls to open up on their own if needed.

To wash our Snack Happened bags, we turn the bags inside-out and use a dishcloth or scrub brush to clean the bag. Then we air dry them and toss in the wash as required. Once a week we wash on hot, in a gentle-wash cycle and then hang dry. You can put them in your dryer but as with most items, line drying or hang drying your Snack Happened bag will keep it looking new longer.

How are the girls enjoying using their Snack Happened bags? They absolutely love the fun prints. Maya's favourite is Perfect Princess and Keira's fave is Rocket Man. They will sometimes have 2 - 3 different patterned snack bags and their lunches look so adorable. Another mom in the class who has Itzy Ritzy snack bags gave us the idea of filling a Snack Happened with carrots and then tossing a little closed container of dip inside with the carrots. That way, when it's snack time, kids only have to pull one item of their lunchbox and don't need to match up containers.

We have also been using Snack Happened for birthday gifts for class friends, as they make a great gift that children can actually use. And just recently, my daughters have started toting around crayons in Snack Happened for colouring on the go and the size of the bags is perfect.

I haven't personally used their snack bags, but I do have one medium Itzy Ritzy Wet Happened bag that I use whenever we go swimming or travel. On the way to a pool or hotel, I use the wet bag to store shampoo, conditioner, etc to keep my purse, totebag, or suitcase dry. When we are are near a pool I then keep my camera, room card, etc in the wetbag to keep them dry. And finally when we are leaving I place our wet swimsuits in the wet happened bag for transport home to the wash. The fabric that I have been using for my Wet Happened is Central Park West and I love it.

  15. That was a very nice read. After reading this I would definitely ditch those reusable diapers for the cloth diapers and as they are much more expensive than cloth daipers. Thanks...!!!
