I remembered those good old days where I stayed up late at night to play Pac-Man on my video arcade game console. Those were the good old days...! If you have never heard of Pac-Man, then you will not understand why I'm excited over this retro bag that I get to review recently. And if you know what is Pac-Man, you'll wish you have this bag too! Here goes my review for the "Skyline Pac-Man Fever 80s Retro Bag":
Description from the product page:
"What's that blip-blip sound? It's the Pac-Man zipping along chewing up dots, ghosts, Blinky, Inky, Pinky and Clyde. No, our Pac-Man Fever 1980s Classic Retro Reporter Bag Doesn't actually come with the sounds, but you could probably make them yourself while traveling with this reporter bag. With Pac-Man and the ghost images layered onto a tough retro vinyl exterior, heavy nylon lining and pocket space, all your gaming supplies, iPods and iPads, and Pacman goodies stay safe and dry in this awesome tribute to the greatest game ever made.
Pac-Man is one of the only three games that are featured in the Smithsonian Institute. This is the PacMan Fever 80s Retro Bag - Skyline Men's and Women's, in Black and Brown colors. It rocks, get one and join us.Rocking, munching dots, dodging Ghosts! This is a seriously funky bag, you'll love it."
The moment I took out the bag from the package wrapper, my boy immediately pointed at Pac-Man and its 4 enemies (Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde) and he says "Mummy look, monsters chasing!". Now back to my review, I love the bag, I really do!
The leathery feel of the vinyl bag, though a bit heavy for me was soon forgotten when I inspect the bag further. I love the long adjustable strap (not easy to find one) which are secured tightly to the sides of the bag. I immediately adjusted the length to suit my requirements, which is to wear it as a sling bag because that's how I roll, oh yeah!
I like the 2 cute zippers on the bag (I get annoyed when there's only one zip on a bag), I mean, 2 zips are cool as I can open it from either sides! Upon further inspection in the insides of the bag, I discovered a zip compartment and a open layered compartment (can easily slip in my iPad, yeah!)
Then I get down to transferring the stuff in my diaper bag to the Pac-Man bag. Obviously my old diaper bag is much smaller than the new one but I like it as the new bag now looks slim and fit (unlike the diaper bag which is out of proportion and getting worn out) In the pictures above, you can see my 3 year old immediately tried to carry my new bag (he can't hahaha..) and he too, can't resist but got down to search through the contents in my new bag!
I immediately brought the bag along at the very first opportunity for a family outing and bugged my hubby to take a picture of me with the new bag, because I need to show to you guys how excited I am to be the owner of this retro bag! I feel so proud to be able to relive some childhood memories of playing Pac-Man and that this bag will be tagging along with us from now on when we go out for our family outings.
All I can say is I love this bag! I'm so happy I get to review this bag!
