Minibreak Mummy loves: Trunki

March 6, 2012

We recently got a Trunki Terrance Ride-on Suitcase (Blue)* for Aled to use when we are travelling. Up until now, we have just used an ordinary holdall for Aled’s stuff. I did get a cheap wheely case for Aled but he wrecked it in no time by jumping on it, so I wanted something more robust.

I chose the Trunki because it seemed hardwearing and very child-friendly. I particularly liked the idea of the suitcase also being a ride-on toy. When the suitcase arrived, Aled immediately tried out the ride-on aspect, wheeling up and down the living room with great glee. Here is a photo of him sitting on the case:

Riding on the Trunki

I’m very impressed with how well it works as ride-on toy. We haven’t tested it in an airport or railway station yet, but I will report back when we do!

So how does it work as a suitcase? Well it is very light to carry with the shoulder strap or handles. Aled can even carry it himself for short distances.

The fastenings are easy to operate and seem very secure when closed, and it is possible to lock them using the key attached to the shoulder strap. Aled was the first to spot the key, as he recognised the key symbol.

He really seems to enjoy putting things in the case, closing it and then opening it and taking everything out. I managed to get him to pause just long enough for me to take a quick photo of the case with a jumper and some socks in it.

In summary, both Aled and I are very impressed with the Trunki Ride-on Suitcase and we are looking forward to trying it out on our travels soon.

    Ace! I saw one of these in use in one of the many airports I’ve been in during the past few weeks and it looked really fun. I wish they did them in grown up sizes.

      It’s certainly been a big hit with Aled!

      I suppose the trouble with doing them in grown-up sizes is that they would no longer meet ‘carry on’ luggage requirements 🙂

    My daughter has a pink one and we use it loads – at the moment, it’s carrying clothes for both of them when we go away, so a blue one for Ben is in order – this looks perfect!
