If you have been following The Poppy Skull or know me, you know I am a huge, huge, huge, (did I mention HUGE?!) Nightmare Before Christmas fan. I fell in love with the movie when it came out when I was about 3 years old and the rest is history. I have almost every Nightmare Before Christmas novelty and home decor item you can think of and I even wrote a paper on the movie for school last year.
Even though I have a huge collection of Nightmare Before Christmas items, I came across one thing I did not own, this Dooney & Bourke Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Tote. I received this tote for Christmas and have been using it ever since. This tote is part of the “Pumpkin King Collection” from the Dooney and Bourke Disney series.
I love everything about this tote, the size, structure, material, pockets, straps, etc. First and foremost I love the graphics on it. Not only is there a huge print of Jack’s face and bow tie on both sides of the tote, but making up the shape of his head is all the characters from the movie.
The materials of the exterior of this tote are made from screen art on coated cotton. I think the background colors and stripes complement the aesthetic of the movie perfectly. The print on the front of the purse is the same on the back, which I like. The back of the purse also has the Dooney & Bourke 1975 gold logo plate near the bottom.
The handles and trim on this tote are black leather with a white stitching. The handles are reinforced as well. You can zip this tote fully shut with its braided zipper leather pull. When you zip the tote shut, it reads Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, which I think is totally rad.
The interior of this tote is purple, which matches the stripes on the outside of the bag perfectly. Inside the tote, you will find, two pockets on the back side, one pocket and a zipper pocket on the front side, and a key hook. I love that there are so many pockets to organize your items in. The open pockets are great for cell phones, and other items you reach for frequently.
The inside of this tote is very spacious. I try not to carry too many items with me because I do not want to hurt my shoulders with a heavy purse. That being said, this tote can fit a lot of stuff. Sometimes when I am heading into work or going to my car, I will throw multiple water bottles and folders of music in this tote as a place to put items I cannot hold at the moment. It fits all of these items and will still have room for more!
The bottom of this Dooney & Bourke Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Tote has a pattern of roses and different Jack expressions on it. There are also silver metal feet on the bottom of the tote. You will also find a little bit of this pattern on the top inside perimeter of the bag.
I have been using this tote every day since I received it for Christmas and I have had no problems with it. I still love using it and I am so happy I have it. Unfortunately, it is no longer available on Disney’s website but if you google, Dooney & Bourke Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Tote, you might be able to find it.
Disney.com does have other Disney Dooney and Bourke purses available on their website, which you can check out below, but there is no Nightmare Before Christmas ones right now. You can also find a Disney Dooney and Bourke Jack Skellington Tote from the “Haunted Mansion” collection on a few different sites. I do not have this purse, but it seems to be exactly like the one I have just with a different print.
If you are a Nightmare Before Christmas fan I would highly recommend getting your hands on this tote or a similar one. If they ever restock this tote or come out with another one, you can bet I will let you know about it! Do you own any Disney Dooney and Bourke bags?! If so, let me know if the comments!
