Parents on the go will love ZenKid’s stroller organizer, currently on sale at Amazon for about $25. The collapsible and durable velcro-attached bag includes room for a few large bottles, keys, wallet, cell phone, wipes, diapers, snacks and other miscellany and keeps your hands free from purses and bulky diaper bags while walking baby or using a jogger.
The organizer comes with an insulated cup or bottle holder, which keeps temperatures stable, and both a zippered and mesh mini-compartments. The velcro straps are long, and adjustable, so the organizer fits even the bulkiest strollers.
Amazon reviewers love the organizer bag and have rated it 5 stars. They point out that it’s easy to clean, holds as much as far-bigger diaper bags, and is a lifesaver on family outings where you’d bring a stroller.
The organizer weighs only 8 ounces, and measures 13 x 4 x 6.5 inches. ZenKid offers a no-hassle money-back guarantee and will provide you a full refund if you aren’t happy.
