We just love how the Prehistoric Land illustrations all over the bag match so well with Charlie’s many dino toys!

Aside from being multifunctional and sturdy, our jumbo bags come in a range of signature Rex London prints, so you can always find one to suit your home style or the little ones’ interests.

While these recycled bags are most commonly used for home storage, many of you also use it as travel bags for family holidays and camping trips. With sturdy nylon handles, they’re excellent for moving house as well.

“Moved my daughter’s possessions to her uni digs in them!”

One of the favourite things that we’ve come across is Carla’s decade-old collection of our jumbo bags filled with family memorabilia.

“They’re filled with kids’ artwork / school work and baby clothes mainly. I’ve used them as memory bags… the standard memory box can’t cope with my mum hoarding!”

One teacher also shared a very practical use for them: carrying test papers that need marking. The Periodic Table design is excellent for science teachers, while geography teachers naturally prefer the World Map print. 

Other fun and practical uses you’ve shared with us: 

  • For storing fancy dress clothes
  • Keeping summer outdoor cushions tucked away during winter

What else do you keep in your jumbo storage bags?

One cheeky customer answered: “my son!” 

That’s definitely not the first time some little ones have tried getting away with hiding inside one of these huge bags!
