Advantages: colourful designs, practical, small size, versatile and soft material
Disadvantages: not for credit cards
Candy Store is a new fashion brand, known for its colourful silicone accessories. The Candy Store products are available in a variety of colours and sizes. The product range includes the Purse Mirror, the Eyeglass case, the Wallet, the Cosmetic Pouch and the Coin Purse. All the products are made from the same soft silicone material.
This specific design comes in 8 bright and fun colours: Bubblegum (pink), Grape (purple), Peppermint (light blue), Cherry (red), Orange, Apple (green), Lemon (yellow) and Licorice (black). The colours names are inspired by fruits and candies and there is also a limited edition design every month. This month's "flavour" is called Candy Cane, featuring a candy cane design.
The coin purse is normally priced at £9.00. I am always looking for better offers so I purchased mine during the summer sales for around £5.00, in the cherry red colour. It is a fun little coin purse made from soft silicone material with a kiss-lock closure.
The material is very flexible and the stainless steel frame and clasp at the top ensures the secure closing. The silver bar around the purse is covered by silicone material and it's only visible at the side hinges as it extends towards the base of the purse. The unique purse design has rounded edges and the top clasp closure comprises by two oversized silicone spheres, designed as extensions of the purse. The "C" logo of the Candy Store brand is embossed at the front side of the purse, as a signature of its authenticity.
This cute purse is appropriate for women and teen girls due to the colourful and pretty design. Because of its size, it nicely fits into my handbag and it's also a very practical solution for my evening bags and clutches. The coin purse dimensions are: 3.5'' x 3.25'' x 1.5'' (W x H x D). On the inside, the mini pouch has one single compartment without internal lining. There is only one layer of silicone and the internal surface is made of the same material that constitutes the external side of the purse. The design is super light and the company states that the material is odour and UV resistant. Indeed, the purse doesn't have the smell of plastic or rubber and I have been using this since August without noticing any fading of the colour. The red colour is still bright and vivid, like the first day that I bought it.
With this size and shape, the small purse only suitable for coins or rolled money. It is very handy and just the right size to keep my loose change in it, but credit cards or keys don't fit in the small compartment of the mini pouch. The silicone surface is waterproof and durable and it feels very soft and smooth on touch. The sturdy material doesn't stain easily and I have found that it's very easy to clean with a damp paper towel and if necessary it can be rinsed with water and air dried.
Overall, it's a very practical and versatile accessory that can be used to hold your loose coins. The silicone pouch is available in a wide variety of bright colours to choose from.
According to the label, the coin purse is made in China.
