Suitcases & Backpacks for Children
A smart choice of suitcase for a younger family member solves two issues. First, it can help keep the child (at least partly!) entertained for the trip. Secondly, you get to pack the case with at least a few essentials.
All the big movie and TV cartoon brands have produced children’s luggage – it is big business these days. In addition to the Disney type cases, there are specialist items. The ‘Trunki’ ride-on cases have taken the world by storm in recent years. You can choose from wheeled luggage (the board equivalent of adult carry on cases), backpack styles and small shoulder type bags. There are even complete sets.
At some point every child will aspire to own ‘grown up’ luggage. With plenty of designs and colours available, a carry-on sized spinner could be an even better solution than those cases aimed exclusively at kids.
This page explains the main categories of Children’s Luggage, and gives you different examples of cases within each. I have incorporated a lot of the feedback left at online stores and review sites. When added together this is a useful barometer of exactly how child-friendly a case is!
