What is a Trunki you may ask? No it is not a bathing suit, not even close. Trunki is the newest line of luggage from Melissa and Doug and can be found at your local Brookstone and at Brookstone’s Online Store. This is the latest craze when it comes to children’s luggage. In fact it is more then just luggage. It is a ride on toy as well. My daughter is almost 6 and her legs are just a wee bit too long to really ride, but picture this.
You get off the plane after a grueling hour of trying to keep your child quite only to hear the whines of “my legs are too tire”. So know you have a whiny child and luggage to cart to your vehicle. Never fear Trunki to the rescue…
The greatest travel innovation since the wheelie bag! Trunki allows children to scoot along on their luggage through the airport or train station. This lightweight, sturdy, carry-on sized suitcase serves as luggage, riding toy, and transport for kids on the go!
We don’t do a lot of family traveling, or at least not just yet. However we love our Trunki for other reasons. It is a great storage bin for things my daughter likes to bring on the go with us. With the kids in sports we are constantly moving. Honey often gets bored at the games and if there are no other children to play with she needs something to help pass the time. The Trunki is great to fill up with toys, coloring books, games, etc. The best part is she doesn’t have to complain about it getting to having carrying it to the field. She can just pull it behind her.
There is some great features on the inside of the Trunki that help your belongings stay in place. You can see these cross straps help your items stay put once the luggage is placed up right.
Honey also loves the little key that comes with it. It gives her the sense of it being “hers” since she and only she holds the key.
The Trunki comes with it’s own line of accessories from alphabet stickers to personalize it, to this cute saddlebag that is multifunctional.
When the saddlebag is not in use as a cushion as help soften your ride you can use it as a purse or carry on of sorts. Just fill it up with your goodies and throw it over your shoulder and you are on your way.
What I love best about the Trunki is it is not your typical luggage that is used once or twice and stored in the closet awaiting it’s next adventure. The Trunki can be used on a daily basis for storage or play, which makes it an appealing choice when it comes to children’s luggage.
