What do you buy for the backyard chicken keeper (or the aspiring backyard chicken keeper!) who has everything?
Why, the henbag of course!
Let's be honest - this is not a high fashion item! If you want a stylish accessory for an elegant night out, this is not it!
But if you want a fun item which will turn heads and start conversations, this is definitely the gift you've been looking for!
Let's take a look at them both in more detail.
If you've already decided to buy, just click here or on one of the images (except the Pin - that's for saving till later if you've got no time right now).
It's yellow, it's rubber, it's chicken-shaped! What more is there to say?
The zip is quite short - about 6" - which can make it hard to get stuff in and out of.
Some people report a "toxic" smell. Rubber does tend to smell. It's just the way it is.
Because it comes folded up, it will take some time for the folds to come out. The way to help it along is to keep it filled.
Oh and - it doesn't lay eggs. Not even rubber ones.
If you follow any of my reviews you know I award a number of Golden Eggs depending on how good I reckon the item to be.
5 is a "you need to get this product now!" kind of thing, and 1 is more "wouldn't touch this is if it was the last thing on earth".
So - how many Golden Eggs should the Henbag be awarded?
If you're just using it for fun, I'd score it a whole 5. But if you're expecting to be able to get things in and out easily, it has to have one egg taken away.
It's clear from people's comments that the zipper, although it's well made, is too short. If that's not a problem for you then definitely go for it!
The perfect companion for the Henbag - the Henbag coin purse!
Again, the same issues: the zipper is much too small and the material tends to smell.
It's also quite expensive for such a small item.
And because it's not on show, it doesn't attract the same attention as the Henbag does.
I'm afraid so.
Even though it would be a good novelty gift, or a nice little gift for a child, the combination of smell, the opening being too small and the coin purse not even being on show makes me think this isn't a great deal.
But if you want it for the novelty value, go ahead and buy!
