    Aubergine or Wasabi Brain Bag?

    Any chance we can get some colorful brain bags? Or at least a colorful lining?
    Black/Aubergine/Wasabi would be beautiful.
    Thanks.

    Maybe! If there was another color of Brain Bag added to the mix, it'd likely be Indigo.

    It would be interesting (at least to me) to have an understanding of the process of determining which colors are selected for which bags - for instance why the brain bag colors are the ones chosen... (The one I ordered arrived in my office today... alas I did not arrive in my office as I had to be out of town.... but tomorrow....)

    It's usually a combination of colors we (Tom and the staff) choose, feedback from you guys, and then, which colors end up being most successful. We like to give a wide variety of color combinations a chance, but if they don't take off, we retire them so they can make room for new color combinations or even new designs.

    Any possibility that the brain bag be made in one color (except for the back panel and straps), just like the camouflage version?

    Thanks.

    Due to popular demand... the Brain Bag is now available for pre-order in Black/Indigo/Steel and Black/Plum/Steel.

    Hmm! It might be a possibility someday, but not anytime soon.

    **Squeal**

    Thank you, TB folks! What wonderful news! For those of us with, ahem, eight kids who aspire to (eventually) get them each a Brain Bag in a different color this is fabulous news indeed!

    @dorayme-they heard our wish for a plum Brain Bag! Wahooo!
