10 best children’s luggage
Don’t be left carrying the kids’ bags this summer: invest in a suitcase designed for younger travellers
Monday 16 June 2014
Rewind the clock a few decades and kids made do with packing their bits and pieces in mum and dad’s suitcase. Not now. Today’s little ones have a whole world of child-focused luggage to choose from, ranging from the award winning Trunki to My First Samsonite’s themed collections of cases that seem to come in just about every shape and size possible.
Older kids are catered for too, ranging from the Smiggle Barrel Bag, aimed at girls, while the SuitSuit BoomBox has a special appeal to pre-teen and teenage boys.
Below, you’ll find a round-up of the best of them, so that when you decide to invest in extra luggage for your offspring this summer, you know you’re getting value for money, practicality, durability and hopefully a bit of fun.

Verdict: Trunki has become a household name in families with kids and with good reason. Their designs are pure genius and the Trunki Benny is no exception. For older kids, we absolutely love the Micro 3in1 Luggage Scooter, although you’ll need deep pockets to afford one.
