Some people may think briefcases are big and clever, but in real terms the normal executive briefcase is an uninspired birthday present, an albatross round the wrists, and a machine of disaster for on-the-edge commuter travellers (of which there are a fair number). So what are we to make of them for children, poor little things?
We took one look at this velvety briefcase, made out of baby-grow material shouting out "hug me", and we couldn't resist. No-one is going to roll eyes over the top when your toy cellular phone starts to jingle, or your briefcase accidentally brushes past and causes static; and even co-workers won't be threatened when you bone-up on your de luxe executive training kit. It promises to "set fashion trends among toddlers and the occasional eccentric adult!"
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
