I saw this little guy on katespade.com a few days ago and just had to post about him! Last summer I purchased the elephant basket bag from kate spade. He was the cutest! Now that I have seen the armadillo I really don't know what to think. I live in Texas where these are road kill. It is sad but you see them everywhere upside down on the side of the road. I think that if I could get that image out of my mind, I would really like this bag. He is darling for an armadillo! As with the elephant, the opening of the bag is small, and the wicker is delicate. This would only be a special occasion bag at best. Maybe even a single occasion bag! I found that with he elephant, it wouldn't stay hanging on my chair at a restaurant and I didn't want him on the floor. In a booth he took up too much room and was easily crunched. Crunching with wicker means breaking... I would suggest that If you really love him and want to adopt him for a pet, go for it! Otherwise, you should pass and get a fun summer tote!
