I received this purse as a gift for my birthday. It was on my wish list, so I wasn't overly surprised, but still very happy!
The awesome Pros of the chicken purse:
*Not highly susceptible to purse thieves (it's a bit flashy)
*Nice size for carrying objects (ex. water bottles) inside
*Matches well with most wardrobes (surprisingly!)
*Feels very durable- strong handles, nice and detailed rubber
*Has a handy inside pocket for keys or cellphone
*Lined with silk-like material and bottom of purse is reinforced
*Fits over the forearm (even with a bulky winter coat on!) for those chilly days when hands must be in pockets
The minimal Cons of the Chicken Purse:
*Might attract more attention than wanted
*The zipper closer IS a bit shorter than expected and can be a hassle when putting objects (like microwave-ready soup containers) inside, but for general (normal?) use it isn't too much or an issue
*Has an odd rubber smell that isn't a big deal and is only noticeable when sticking your nose in the bag. (and will eventually fade, I think). So far, it hasn't made any items inside the bag smell, but when I added a pack of minty gum inside, the two smells mixed and are fairly unlikable.
*Feels durable, but I am concerned about sharp objects possibly stabbing through the rubber (somehow??)
Overall, I am thrilled I received this as a birthday present. I did have it on my wish list. A great gift idea for someone who loves chickens (not me) or doesn't enjoy the conventional purse styles (defiantly me!)
I almost wish there was a button inside the comb of the chicken that would produce a "clucking" noise when pressed. But, maybe that's going too far. Haha.
