5.0 out of 5 stars CLUCK!, December 2, 2010
By 
This review is from: Rubber Chicken Purse - The "Hen Bag" Handbag (Toy)
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

*Conversation starter

*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.

This was such a fun review to read. You really added a smile to my face on a dull, rainy day in Chicago. :)

Hey, I loved your review. I'm in Chicago, too, so now you have a fan base here.

I've been eying this in a store window for years, promising to give it to myself as a reward one day, and it just disappeared! I'm so glad to find it on Amazon (it's also available direct from Amazon, a little cheaper, too) that I'm going to get it for myself as a birthday present.

Hi, I'm from Moscow - and still a member of your Chicago fan club! Thank you for a funny and detailed review! I ordered this bag and hope it will bring some fun to our chilling winter.

PS And I do also vote for a button with clucking noise!

Thanks for your review. I am definitely getting one -- one for me, and one for my mom! I think I can handle the odd smell.

My husband got me one of these for Christmas a few years ago. About your "clucking noise," I set my ringtone to be a chicken sound; I think it crowed (rooster, not hen, but it was still very hilarious.)
