Zo & Co Review and Giveaway

We are in our van a ton, every day we drop off, pick up, head to one activity or another, and run this errand or that.  My kids are forever asking to bring some kind of toy or snack or book along for the ride. Needless to say, at the end of the week the van is looking like a tornado has blown through.
Recently I was given the opportunity to review a product for MBP and share it with all of our wonderful readers. This product has helped keep our van more organized and I can't wait to try it out anywhere else I can find a seat-back pocket.
Zo & Co is a newly founded and created (2011) mother and daughter company based in Missouri. I have to share the quote and photo on their about us page, it is just too perfect for them:
How cool is it that this mom and daughter have gotten to create something together? What have they created you ask. What was a stressful plane ride with a baby, turned one great idea and some sewing knowledge into the TravelTote.
I worked with Stacy, the daughter of the duo, and was impressed with every step. She was easy to communicate with, quick to respond and super friendly. She answered all my questions and made sure I had every way to contact her if need be. Shipping was quick and the products were safely packaged. We are thrilled to partner with Zo & Co and help them get their name and great products out there.
Our package from Zo & Co has arrived
 Included in our package were 2 Zo & Co TravelTotes, some Zo & Co information, and a handwritten note from Stacy. You know I love those handwritten notes, so even before opening my TravelTotes, they already had a plus in my book.

First was the Kids' TravelTote
The unique part of all TravelTotes is when unfolded it clips right on a seat back pocket, but also folds up compactly and easy to stick inside a carry on or bag to use somewhere else. They are meant to keep all your essentials organized and in reach. Let me tell you, they work!

I stuck our Kids' TravelTote in our van first thing
 We already had a bag of toys hanging out in the van, but it was at capacity and starting to overflow. I quickly stuck a package of wipes and some sunglasses in the tote and was pleased with how nicely they fit, I also ended up stashing some snacks and random toys as well. The TravelTote has 6 pockets, with 2 middle that are approximately 6" and 4 outer that are approximately 4". The total sizing unfolded is 16" W x 8" H x 1-1/2" D. If I needed to fold up my TravelTote, it has Velcro closures and is very compact and measures 6-1/2" W x 8" H x 2-1/4" D. Everything fit well and was easy to fill. I love the bright red color it has, it is also available in blue or purple. The Kids' TravelTote is very soft and made from a quilted broadcloth,  it is also really sturdy, and well made. If I ever need to wash my TravelTote, which is pretty much guaranteed, I can just machine wash cold on the delicate cycle and lay flat to dry.

The Kids' TravelTote retails for $29.50
Our next product was the Zo & Co Tech TravelTote
This TravelTote is perfect for the person with all the gadgets.
I put the Tech TravelTote in Adam's SUV. He is our gadget guy.
His SUV is filled with all kinds of tech gear, GPS, Satellite Radio attachments, Cell Phone, IPod, and more. He was stuffing them in any compartment he could find, but not anymore. I stuck his umbrella in there first, as it was just sitting on the floor. Now Adam can stick all his gadgets in there while he is in the car, and grab it and fold it up when he gets out. This way he has a compact way to carry all this stuff and not leave it in the car. The TravelTote has 4 pockets,  each of a different size. The largest pocket is great for our Kindle Fire and our Netbook. The smaller pockets are perfect for a cell phone, Ipod, GPS, BlackBerry, and any other gadget. There is also a pocket that perfectly holds a bottle of water, or in Adam's case, the umbrella. The total sizing unfolded is 16" W x 8"H x 1"D and folded is 6-1/2"W x 8"H x 1-1/2"D, there is also a Velcro closure when folded. We have the blue, which is perfect because our SUV is blue, but is also available in red and black. The Tech TravelTote is made from a heavy duty Nylon with a water resistant finish and is made just as well as the Kids' TravelTote. Because the TravelTote is made of a different material, it can only be surface washed with a damp cloth.

The Tech TravelTote retails for $29.50
TravelTote also carries an Original, and a bit more about it.

The Original TravelTote is a compact, convenient travel accessory to keep your travel essentials close-at-hand during your trip. It slides firmly over the seat back pocket during your travel, then folds and easily tucks in your carry-on when you’re done.
  • Holds a light paperback or e-reader, a water bottle and other travel essentials
  • 5 pockets
  • 1 Carabiner
  • Velcro closure
  • Neatly slides on and off the seat back pocket
  • Folds for compact, convenient storage in a larger carry-on bag
  • Made from heavy duty Nylon with a water resistant finish
  • Care: Surface wash only with a clean, damp cloth
  • Dimensions (open): 16"w x 8"h x 1"d
  • Dimensions (folded): 6-1/2"w x 8"h x 1-1/2"d
 All of the TravelTote products are manufactured in the United States. Whether you are driving or flying, you need one of these TravelTotes. You will have an easy, durable way to carry your smaller items and have them right within reach.
