Life is messy, wipe it up! That’s the slogan for an amazing company Messy Marvin. They know that toddlers aren’t and will never be clean. They also know that mommy’s don’t really like messy houses. So how do you encourage your kids to get messy while mommy and the house stay fabulous? Well that’s where Messy Marvin comes in. They believe in less stress over a mess. Their products preserve and protect those favorite pieces that you have worked hard to own. More importantly though, they provide you with a peace of mind knowing that you won’t have to sacrifice any of the fun from letting kids be kids. How do they do that? By carrying a classic line of wipeable, yet stylish products that can all be cleaned with just a little soap and water. When mommy was contacted to review a few of their products, just knowing that here was a product that was going to make life a little easier for her, she said yes. After all I do know how to make a really good mess!

Messy Marvin is the brainchild of Rebekah Woodward an interior designer who wanted to create a happy medium between style, functionality and practicality.
I will be going through the products that I received one by one but these are only a few of what Messy Marvin has to offer. They offer a full range of products not just for your kids and household but for your pets as well.
I received the Mobile Marvin – RV $59 (Available in Pink/Green Pillow, Blue/Orange Pillow or Green/Hot Red Pillow.) I received the Pink/Green.
The mobile Marvin is an innovative changing pad that is not just a changing pad but a high chair cover and grocery cart cover as well. I have to say that it is big! If you have a very small diaper bag this is not going to fit in there. It measures 39″ x 31″ and because of it’s big size works out very well for what it was designed to do. That is hold your baby or toddler for a quick diaper change. Those tiny changing mats does nothing for us and this one is really padded and super comfy.
I am currently 35″ and I had to lay on it to show you that it fits even me. One of the great feature of the Mobile Marvin is that it has a comfy pillow that cushions my head. That means we are no longer laying our heads completely flat on that hard surface you choose to change our diapers on.
Now one of the feature that Messy Marvin doesn’t highlight on their website is that this has a pocket for you to store your changing essentials. There is room to pack a diaper, wipes and even a tube of bum cream when you’re heading to the changing station with your little one. No need to take the entire diaper bag with you. There is a velcro tab that keeps it all inside and secure. When you’re done it all fold back up neatly to be stored in your diaper or mommy bag.
I also received the Marvin on the Move Tote – RV$175 (Also available in Pink/Green pockets, Blue/Orange Pockets, Green/Hot Red Pockets, Ivory/Light Blue Pockets and Orange/Light Blue Pockets.) I once again received the Pink/Green.
This goes along perfectly with the Mobile Mavin. Measuring at 19″ tall x 15″ wide this is a very big bag. It is also made from the “Wipe It Up” Messy Marvin lead free PVC lined fabric. It is totally the perfect mommy bag for those long trips. Featuring soft seatbelt straps that are totally adjustable and that can also be opened to secure anywhere you feel like securing it. We all know how incredibly strong seat belts are so I know that these straps are not going anywhere.
There is also an 8 ring polished nickel clasp that is on the inside as well. You can use it to hang your keys or anything that you desire.
Now for the inside of this bag. As you can see from the photo, mommy decided to put the Mobile Marvin on the inside and there is LOTS of space. I mean how can you even begin to imagine running out of space in this bag. There are four pockets on the inside that gives you extra storage. While this doesn’t have a velcro or zipper closing it does have a magnetic close.
Mommy is 5′ 10″ tall and wanted to show you how it looks when holding it. If you are very petite you may want to rethink this but since it can attach to your stroller you may have no problem. If you’re looking for a bag that can hold everything including your kitchen sink then this is the bag for you. If you’re looking for a bag with easy clean up when messes happen then this is also the bag for you. Stylish and practical like all Messy Marvin products.
Now moms and dads no longer have to worry about their little ones sitting in the living room and making a big mess. With products such as the the sofa cover and even the rug splat mat they have you covered. They haven’t forgotten the furry family members either. There are wipeable dog beds which can also be used for your feline friends too. Messy Marvin is a parents dream come true. I am in love with their products and so is mommy. They get my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
