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!"
