Parents of a certain age might remember when they were children and went on holiday. They had a small suitcase or a bag in which to pop a few bits and bobs, and the rest went into mum and dad’s luggage.
These days it has all changed of course. Not only do we have cases to ride on, but suitcases with themes and ones that have won awards.
Here are our favourite children’s luggage:
Trunki – Bernard Bee – £39.99
The original Trunki that failed in its bid to secure investment from the Dragon’s Den, is now a thriving business in its own right. Made from sturdy plastic, the same used for adult cases, there are so many different designs now you are sure to find one that your child will love.
Travel Buddies – Lola Ladybug – £59.99
Two for the price of one here. A travel case and a matching back pack that come in a variety of designs including an alien, butterfly and a robot. The case has a hard shell and the backpack measures 13 inches.
Skip Hop Zoo Luggage Owl – £36.14
Skip Hop make a range of both travel and carry on backpacks and in various animal forms, from real ones, such as owls and monkeys, to unicorns. They also do loads of accessories like umbrellas, drinks bottles, bibs etc. so mixing and matching is not just easy but fun too.
Blue Floral Cabin Suitcase by Murano – £65.99
I love this case! Just wish they had one in an adult’s size. The great thing about these cases is that you can choose two images for the case and it is easy to switch them over at a later date. Nice sturdy hard shell and four multi-directional wheels.
Dinosaur Trolley Case from KiDiD – was £25.10 now £22.99
You can use this case as either a wheeled trolley type or a backpack for when they are a tad older. The shoulder straps are nice and comfy because they are padded, and inside are loads of spaces for toys. Comes with two wheels and the handle retracts.
Travel Buddies ‘Popo Parrot’ 2-Piece Hardside Kids’ Carry On Luggage Set – £81.57
We love the colour popping hues from this Popo Parrot case. The duo includes the travel wheelie case and the backpack. The travel case has a hard shell and so does the pack. Your child will love it.
Samsonite Marvel Avengers Triangle Cabin Case – £32.50
Your child could channel their inner superhero with this fantastic case from experts in the industry – Samsonite. The wheelie suitcase has a fabric outer shell and features Captain America with some cool reflective materials that shine back the light. You get a top handle and a pull out handle with this case. Good value we think.
Samsonite Finding Dory Cabin Case Backpack – £79.00
Bit expensive this but made by Samsonite and if your little one has been blown away by the film Finding Dory they will want to wheel this around. The suitcase also works as a backpack and you get a handle and wheels and of course, Dory’s face on the front.
