The fashionable tote comes in 3 models in high-quality materials and colors. In just a few steps, the product can be fastened to a docking station on the headrest of the passenger seat or backseat, or to the handlebars of a bicycle. So the little darling is always safe at your side and in sight, while enjoying the view.
