“ Playboy / Grab bag by Playboy „
WHAT IS IT?
A medium size shopping bag in black with Playboy rabbit head logo featuring prominently on both sides of the bag. This bag isn't an official Playboy product and can be bought from Wilkinsons in black, pink and red.
This shopping bag will fold up but creases so I try not to fold mine. The rabbit head covers most of both sides of the bag and is printed in white whatever colour bag you buy, I have got the same bag in black and pink and the contrast stands out much better against the black background. It's a cheap shiny plastic that looks good but is more for fun than serious shopping.
WHAT I THINK
The bag doesn't hold very much so I keep it in the boot of my car for use with other shopping bags at the supermarket. It is wipe clean inside and out so I sometimes use it when I go shopping for the fruit and vegetables, I wouldn't rely on it to hold many tins or heavy because the sides of the bag feel thin and flimsy. The handles are the right length for carrying the bag on my shoulder and both handles are wide so they don't dig into my flesh, the handles are not adjustable and are too long to be able to carry the bag in my hand.
The inside of the shopping bag is one large compartment with no zipped pockets. The bottom of the bag isn't reinforced so it sags if you put too much in, one of the bottom corners has started scuffing but that isn't bad because it's been used a lot and kept in the car without being cared for.
I think it's a bit childish carrying a shopping bag with such a large Playboy emblem but to pack my shopping in at the till I will carry on using it because it is a good compact size and folds quickly and easily.

My friend loves Playboy items. At 36 years of age I'm certainly not into the brand and feel that although its meant to be an adult brand it really isn't anymore but like I say my friend really is into it and in a couple of days it is her 33rd birthday and I went on a major Playboy hunt for her presents from me! I spotted this bag on sale in my Freemans catalogue and £10.00 I thought it was a good purchase. However if you want to take this up on their offer you can order any 3 items of £10.00 and get one free at the moment (which is what I did).
No sizes are given for this bag but from the photograph on the top of this review page (which is the same as on the website) it looks bigger than what it is. I expected this to be an average size, adult shopping bag but to me this is a kids size and really rather dinky looking!
However it looks ok to be fair to it and I ended up giving it to my friend before her birthday as we going to a spa in a day or so (for her birthday too) and thought she made be able to make some use of it on our trip!
It is black patent with two straps to the top of it and a big white bunny head on one side of it and the word Playboy to the bottom right hand corner. It is a 100% PVC and dry clean only with a light feeling black lining within it and a care label (which I have just told you the information from).
The straps are not long enough to go over your shoulders so it is one to hold and the stitching on it is neat and tidy and the embossed on bunny head is like a transfer but it is secure and very hard to scratch and/or damage.
My friend loves this bag and has used it plenty of times. Me, I think it is a tacky looking 'in your face' bag which is far too small to be any use at all. However I can't argue with the quality of it to be fair to it but worth £10.00? (usual price).... I think not and if she hadn't of been so delighted with it I'd of felt totally ripped off!
