Quite regularly I receive emails from readers asking me where to find a certain product, I am always happy to answer these questions and if I don’t know the answer I try my hardest to find out (I love a challenge!). One of the latest questions I was asked was about a personalised swim bag, preferably one that wouldn’t break the bank. Lucky for me this was a very easy one as I spotted some very recently at Charlie Bloome.

You probably remember Charlie Bloome from the All-in-One Kindy Sheet Sets, the super practical combination of a top sheet, bottom sheet and pillow case that are connected so you no longer need to search for missing pieces. Charlie Bloome is all about making parents lives easier and they have been very busy extending the range with more handy products for modern families.

With summer just around the corner (so we hope!) many Australian families are gearing up for lots of swimming, either at the beach or pool. Leaving the house with towels, bathers and dry clothes for every family member can be tricky, but coming home with all of it is even trickier! A personalised swim bag will make it much more likely your kids are bringing home their own items instead of someone else’s.

The fully lined Charlie Bloome Swim Bags (they can be used as library bags too) are very generous in size with plenty of pockets and the zip closures make sure nothing falls out when kids swing their bags around. The carry strap is adjustable to suit different ages. One of these great Swim Bags will cost you just $18 and for only $10 extra it can be personalised with your child’s first name and first letter of last name. These are fantastic prices and much cheaper than other alternatives available in Australia.
