Our friends at “Life is Good” sent us a couple products for review. I warned them that our kids would destroy anything they sent us within a matter of days. They decided to take the Portland Family Adventure challenge and send us the products anyway! As a reader of this site, you’ll know that we keep things positive and publish only recommend adventures, hikes, restaurants, activities, parks, etc. If we don’t like it, we don’t publish it.
“Life is Good” as a saying and a company fits well with our attitude here at Portland Family Adventures! While their clothing and hats have adorned our kids (and many of yours too!), this time we ventured into travel mugs and tote bags. Because we’re publishing, I am happy to give a green light to both products and encourage you to order them for your family (links below).
First up, the “Journey Tote” is a lined, sturdy, cotton-canvas tote bag with some burly handles. The bags come in two colors, but we liked the green floral print on brown. The size of the bag is just right for carrying along all sorts of snacks, kids’ toys, and even jackets.
The two things we like best: 1) There is a “hook and ring closure,” which allows you to close the top of the bag without sealing it shut; and 2) an internal zipper pocket that is great for a wallet, phone, and/or keys.
Next up, we have the Life is Good stainless steel travel mug. How much can you say about a travel mug? First, don’t put it in the dishwasher! DUH! Of course, I put it in the dishwasher, and it still keeps drinks hot for a long time. Of course, I’m not always the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to the “rules of the dishwasher.”
What else can I say? We love the “twist-off” top, which pops on and off with a firm twist and pull, and the pretty slate-blue color is nice. As you can see in the photo, my son likes the travel mug for sipping his hot tea. He’s become rather attached to the mug.
