    So I messed around this afternoon trying to put together a small purse, possibly for my little sister's birthday. She's twelve years old, and I'm wondering if this one is TOO colorful or too childish for her. What do ya think?

    I think it is pretty, but maybe a bit juvenile for some 12 yr olds.
    Maybe send a pic to her Mom for her opinion? :D:D:D

    I like the polka dots, but think that the stripe is a little on the smaller-child side than for a 12 year old girl. I guess that's awkwardly stated but I didn't want to sound too abrupt.

    I love it, but I also think it would be great for a bit younger child

    I don't know. Honestly, your best bet for this question would be other 12 year olds.

    Maybe not a purse, but a tote bag, if it is big enough.

    Twelve yr. olds are sooo mature for their ages now than back in the day when I was twelve! You know your sis best, so if you think she'd like it...then I say, go for it!

    Thanks for all the advice ladies!

    Maybe I'll give this one to my eight year old sister and make the 12 year old something more mature looking (she does wear a lot of earthy tones, lol).
