O Yikes Diaper Bag Review & Accessories Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is number #141!
As a mom who is always on the go, I love products that works with my active life style. I received an O Yikes! Square Bag/ Diaper Bag to review and the bag is working out really well for me.

To begin, I want to tell you how much I love the design of the Square bag. Besides loving its causal and retro look, I really love that it's not girly. I love that when I hand my diaper bag to DH, he has no problem carrying it because it is a bag that both women and men can carry.

Our 1960’s retro inspired bag, the Square, is anything but square. The Square combines nostalgic fabrics with a modern spin and is ideal for tending to energetic toddlers or rushing to work. The design allows ample room to carry diapers and toys along with your standard 12” laptop. The Square is also expandable and allows an extra 2”, perfect for carrying everything from family, school, travel, and work gear. The Square can be purchased separately or with our pre-packaged set, the 24.7. The 24.7 is aptly named given that parental duty is often more than 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The 24.7 includes matching accessories specifically geared toward parenthood. The matching accessories include; insulated bottle holder, accessory case, changing pad, and wipes case. As all O Yikes! products, the Square is ideal in helping bridge the gap between family and work, all in one bag


The bag we received to review is the avocado chocolate color. My first impression of the bag was that it's very well made. I like the wide shoulder strap. I think it is great that the Square bag is so versatile. The bag is large enough to carry everything a baby needs (changing pads, diapers, bottles, baby wipes, extra change of clothes) and even room for your own stuff too.




My favorite feature on this diaper bag that I haven't seen on other diaper bags is the expandable option (using a zipper system, much like the way expandable luggage works). Sometimes I leave the house not carrying much stuff, but by the time we head home, I am carrying DD's jacket and her toys in my diaper bag too. To be able to make extra space when you need it by using the expandable option is just awesome.


I also love that the Square Bag can be used as a diaper bag but does not look like a diaper bag. This means that when your children are older and you don't need a diaper bag any longer, you can still use this bag as a messenger bag for work or just as a carry all bag.



If you buy the entire set with the accessories (Accessory Case, Cylinder Case, Changing Pad and Wipes Case), it is $125. If you buy just the bag without the accessories, it will cost you $95. I think that if you plan on using this as a diaper bag, you definitely should get the matching accessories because it means you can use the Square bag as a diaper bag until your child is older. After that, you can use it as a regular bag. This is a bag that will last you many years.



To buy the Square Bag along with the accessories we received to review, please go to O Yikes to make your purchase. To receive a 10% discount, please enter Blog10 upon checkout.


Many thanks to Lisa of O Yikes! She has generously offered an onsie and an accessory as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please). The lucky reader will win an O Yikes! Signature onesie and an O Yikes! accessory (Accessory Case, Changing Pad or Cylinder Case) of their choice and color.

Accessory Case:
The O Yikes! accessory case quickly and easily keeps you organized with two see through mesh pockets. It’s perfect for holding your little essentials for the office – paper clips, post it notes, and memory sticks to items for the little one – medicines, binkies, and toys.

Changing Pad:
The O Yikes! changing pad is ideal for those quick and sometimes unexpected diaper changes. The easy unfolding design with the Velcro tab makes it convenient to change diapers anywhere. The pad unfolds to comfortably fit even your largest toddler. It’s also just as easy to put away and store. Once the pad is folded, it becomes small and compact - perfect to “grab and go”. (Does not include the wipes case.)

Cylinder Case:
The insulated O Yikes! cylinder case can keep hot items hot and cold items cold. Not only is it designed to carry standard size water bottles, it can also hold most bottles and sippy cups. The cylinder case is also perfect for holding other uniquely sized items appropriate for those who “work while one the go” – comfortably holds power cords, pens, pencils, and other slender items.
