Summer Fun with Picnic Time

IMG_20150702_135637474_HDRHere at Bronxmama we are all about finding all kinds of cool gadgets and things that make life fun, low cost, and easier! For many living in the Bronx and the Big Apple, that means finding all kinds of hacks to make life simple- especially with kids in tow. We love how much there is to do in the city: the free events, the beaches, the pools, and the cultural institutions. But, trekking all over the place with young children can be challenging, especially when you’re relying on the trains and buses to get you to your destination. So, we connected with Picnic Time and asked them to introduce us to what they thought would be a great fit for a family on the go to get the most out of this summer. We love what they came up with…

IMG_20150628_184800First up is this PTX Cooler Backpack– it’s a backpack with an insulated cooler inside. Perfect for those trips to the beach with the kids, the park, or even the pool. It’s a good size, but not huge- so fits perfectly in the lockers at your local public pool. There are two zippered compartments on the outside for things you don’t want to stay cool or get wet, and two bottle holders for those easy to grab waters as you travel. So far this bag has come everywhere with us!

Then comes this neat Beach Cooler Tote that functions as a regular tote  but with a hidden insulated compartment underneath that holds soda, food, or a great idea is wet bathing suits! There are also two insulated side pockets perfect for drinks.  This is perfect for beach trips when you want to bring along a few drinks and keep them cool in the beaming sun. We packed our towels and other beach gear into the tote and put a few drinks in the cooler compartment and hit the beach with friends. Perfect!

Life is now that much more simpler.
