Considering that moms have taken over the consumer tech world (it’s true, we have), it’s not surprising that now the popular parent and baby brands have jumped into the fray with tech accessories. They don’t all do it well–but one mom-favorite now does. So well, in fact, that there’s nothing particularly “mom” about them. In other words, no, there are no ducks or gingham teddy bears on these iPad and laptop sleeves that are just launching today.

or two, so it’s not surprising that they’re now offering an iPad sleeve

tablet out of its cozy home easily, while a magnetic clasp snaps the top
flap shut nicely. I also like the luggage-style card slot detail on the

Carried Away laptop sleeve has similar styling and sturdy construction,
and it’s smart that the zipper opens across the top and down one side,
which can make it easier to get your 15″ laptop out quickly at the security
checkpoint. (Or you know, when you have to get on Twitter immediately
during the Oscars.)
The thing is, you don’t even have to be a mom to love these Petunia’s tech cases. They’re just plain pretty. -Liz
