A cooler bag – whether on my shoulder, stashed below the pram or in the car – was a must-have piece of parent gear for me over this long, humid and sweltering summer. It kept my daughter’s peanut butter and jam sandwiches from melting away, my cheese sandwich from becoming inedible and our water from reaching undrinkable temperatures.
The hot-off-the-production line Funkykat cooler bags are for just those sorts of days or for whenever you need to keep drinks, lunches or snacks cool. Australian owned and designed, the bag’s size was designed with parents in mind and comes in two eye-catching colours.
To buy, go to the Funkykat website where each cooler bag is normally $29.95 (but currently on sale for Mother’s Day at $24.99) plus $4.95 for shipping.
