There has to be an easier way.
I ask my kids not to pack the grand kids as much, thinking that a smaller piece of luggage would be easier for the grandson to carry them self, that didn’t work.
I decided that I had to take it upon myself to figure out a way that all 4 of the grandsons can carry their own bags when they come to visit us.
I think I just may have figured it out. Rolling Luggage!
It has probably been out for years, but since my grandsons are just now getting to the age to travel to visit us, I am just now learning about them.
They have made these so sturdy that they will take what the kids dish out to them. And you know boys are going to run over anything in their way and they will sit on them and bounce on them and then try to drag them with the wheels in the air. I am so happy to see that they have made these kid proof.
Melissa & Doug Trunki Rolling Kids Luggage
The first one that really caught my eye was the Trunki Rolling Kids Luggage by Melissa & Doug. All I can say is, watch out at the airport, because here come my grand kids.
Watch this great video showing how great this luggage is.
I love how versatile it is. They can just use it at home to play with and store their favorite toys or they can use it for traveling. Can you imagine how nice it would be to have the option of pulling them through the airport? It can be locked, so if you have them store it underneath the plane with the rest of the luggage, it will be safe. There are other things you can add to it like stickers to personalize it and a saddlebag that will hold just a few things that they can get to easily. This is the perfect answer to a lot of peoples needs.
The extra accessories make it the child’s personalized suitcase. The saddlebag is great and it comes in several colors to mix and match with the Trunki your child chooses.
Other color options for Trunki.
Travel Buddies Luggage Set
I also really liked this luggage set by Travel Buddies. Besides the great graphics on the outside, they have really thought about the kids when designing this luggage. The big luggage is an 18″ wheelie case that only weighs about 5 pounds, so it is not going to be really heavy when they want to carry it. Also, the handle that they pull it with is adjustable for an adult or child. Isn’t that nice? The backpack is a 13″ hard shell that weighs about 1.5 pounds. There are 4 different graphics to choose from and I think what really sold me is that they are water resistant. How is it my grandsons can find water wherever they are?
Check out the great graphic choices there are.
Stephen Joseph Rolling Luggage
Stephen Joseph has been a long time favorite of mine. They carry so many adorable things for kids for back to school and everyday items. I guess I hadn’t thought that they would have luggage as well. What a great surprise! They have designed this rolling luggage for ages 2 to 6. This is probably the age that luggage is rarely designed for. These are made of 100% nylon, so you just wipe them off to keep them clean. The handle that you use to pull it with is adjustable from 14.5 inches to 18 inches. It grows with them. They come in a huge assortment of fun graphics to choose from. You won’t be sorry with anything by Stephen Joseph.
Great choices for girls. These are just some that I happen to like. There are so many to choose from that you will just have to click through and look at them. I would let the kids decide. It will increase their joy for carrying it when the time comes.
Great choices for boys. The same thing as above applies to the boys selection. Way too many to put them all here.
Skip Hop Zoo Little Kid Luggage
Skip Hop has long been known for their quality children’s products. The color they use is excellent and really appeals to both parents and kids.
More choices in Skip Hop
A few more that I couldn’t resist adding.
So those are the choices that I have narrowed it down to. Of course, there are many more on Amazon.com, but these are the ones that I am considering for the grand kids. Aren’t they just so much fun?…the grand kids….not the luggage.
