I ordered a bag for my youngest as an un-birthday gift since his big bro was celebrating his soon. Amazing customer service and she mailed it out quickly so it would arrive in time. The bag is the sweetest and top quality. He adores his robot bag, and has been using it non-stop. Highly recommend to everyone. Thank you so much!

I ordered two bags for my daughters around Christmas time and I can't say enough great things! Jacqui was so fun to work with and helped me to personalize a combo of fabrics and strap color. The turn around time was amazing. My girls (almost 2 and almost 4) love carrying their bags up to the playground and collecting nature items as well as toting along their favorite small toys. Beautifully made and my favorite gift I bought in 2016!

My daughter has some of the very first Meeabee bags. Even now, 10 years later, she will often choose her Meeabees when she goes out. 
I have also given one to my niece. The delight on her face and the fact that she only took it off for a bath for the entire week we were with her should make it very clear how much she loves hers. 
Perfectly sized and shaped, hard-wearing and washable. What else could you ask for? Oh yes! They are so very cute!

Montessori-Parent Favourite

Our bags are a Montessori-parent favourite! Our bags are simple and unfussy They foster independence in the youngest children. 
We choose only imagination-inspiring designs. We never feature television or commercial characters.
We try not to stick only with blue for boys and pink for girls. 

We use natural materials like cotton and linen.

What's in your Bag?

A couple of months after my younger son was born I met a gentleman at the playground who was interested in studying English. He seemed like a nice chap so we started meeting regularly during my baby's nap time. We talked mainly about current affairs to improve his spoken English (remember we live in Japan).

It's all the rage these days for a business to have a mission statement and to be a purpose-driven company. I should know, I studied business and marketing at university. LOL.

About Us

Handmade in Japan since 2007

Inspiring imaginations is our biggest goal when we make our bags.

Every single bag is handmade from fabrics chosen for their quirky or fun non-commercial characters. There’s enough stuff with yellow creatures in overalls around don’t you think?

We love bugs and exploring, ballerinas and twirling, strutting flamingoes, chattering penguins.

Having kids is the craziest adventure you’ll ever go on! But it’s a privilege to raise our future generation so we try to embrace every minute. Adventures at the supermarket, around the garden or to a park. Kids don’t don’t much more than happy moments shared together.

We're a family-run business - mainly just mum with the support and encouragement of dad and the two kids. We live in a small city just south of Osaka. We enjoy the outdoors and are lucky to live near the beach and close to a small mountain-range. 

Say hi! We're on social media.
