Product Review: Trunki
If you have never heard of a trunki the it is a ride on suitcase geared towards children aged 3+. They have a seat area and horns for the child to hold onto, they have a carry handle and strap (which can be used to pull the child along on). Although, that been said you are not suppose to pull your child about on them (health and safety I expect). We have never pulled the kids along on theirs, however the kids love to scoot around on them. We normally just use the trunkis we have to put the kids toys and sticker books in for the trips we do.
Now for some Trunki technical details:
Size: 46 x 21 x 31 cm
Volume: 18 litres
Max Ride Weight: 50kg
This means it is perfect for most airline approved hand luggage sizes. Our eldest son only started using it properly when he turned 3 but he has used it since he was 18 months. Which I suppose is why they say its for age 3+! It has a great amount of internal space which means you can pack a lot of toys in it.
It also has straps inside to hold things in place. We have also bought a Trunki Tote bag which sits inside and holds things a bit better together. You can see a picture of the Tote Bag below
All trunkis also come with lockable catches but to be honest we have never used this option as they are pretty secure without the lock.
Remember most children may not want to carry or pull along their trunki so make sure you can carry it and have enough hands to do it yourself. A pull along backpack or backpack may be better option for them if they wont carry/pull it along themselves.
Overall a great design and our kids love them. Trunkis come in so many different designs for your kids to choose from. If you weren’t using it for travel on a plane then it can easily be used for overnight stays with grandparents etc. Enough space inside for clothes, nappies and toys if needed.
