Swoop Bags: Made In America Spotlight

If you have ever stepped on a wayward LEGO and wanted to scream bloody murder, you will love this nifty Made in America product I found! It’s called Swoop! Trust me, you are going to LOVE this!

Swoop

My boys have a gazillion LEGOS. I’ve asked them time and time again to play with them somewhere other than the main family room. Ever feel like you’re banging your head against the wall?

So, of course, there are pieces of LEGO scattered everywhere in the main room we hang out in. I’ve stepped on more LEGO pieces than I care to count. Thankfully, most of the time the pieces are actually part of a creation, but when they decide to get creative, I’m in a heap of trouble.

SwoopThen…THEN I found Swoop! I’m pretty sure I heard my feet singing praises to Sarah Kirk, owner of this awesome company! The idea came from her grandma who had made a bag for Sarah’s brother. I think if I met her, I’d hug her!

SwoopNow, the Swoop bag sits in our family room with the LEGOS nicely contained! Since we started using it, I haven’t stepped on a single naughty LEGO!

Swoop SwoopNow, we use it for LEGOS, but honestly, you could use it for anything that would fit into the bag. One of the photos on the Swoop site has dress up clothes in it!! And this bag is huge! Not only is it big, it’s very well made!

SwoopSwoop uses the highest quality cotton canvas and nylon cording. The boys play inside the “walls” of the bag and then if needed, they can “swoop” it up by pulling the strings on both sides and we can simply tuck it away somewhere.

Giving back is something Swoop finds important. They are involved with Operation Smile! A percentage of every sale goes to support them.

Make sure to check out all the awesome color selections at Swoop. While you’re at it, make sure to follow them on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.

One lucky winner will be receiving a Swoop bag!
