Hold on to your hats, Moms. Traveling with your kids just got a million times easier! Meet Trunki:
I love this thing.
When Colin and I traveled to Jamaica by ourselves last month, the Melissa & Doug Trunki was a lifesaver. It was the perfect size for all of the necessities for the 4-year-old traveler – it fit books, coloring books and markers, stuffed animals, snacks and – most importantly – his blankey and Cuddleuppet. But the ability to carry up to 75-pounds of weight was fabulous! I didn’t need to drag along my stroller (which is such a pain to check at the gate – and now they sometimes make you check it to baggage which is not helpful AT ALL). Especially when we finally arrived in Philly at 2:30am and my little dude was way too tired to walk and I had too much stuff to carry.
Colin was the hit of the airport riding his Trunki around the terminal. Everyone was commenting on how cool it was – several travelers asked if there was am adult version I lost track of how many people asked where we bought it!
And it was great entertainment during our 4 hour flight delay! Not only for riding around the terminal, but it makes a great spot for a impromptu puppet show…
It also was helpful as a stool in the bathroom so he could wash his hands! It is extremely durable (it made it through an international trip with Colin without a scratch) and easy to pull and steer when it has a heavy preschooler riding on it. The long strap wrapped perfectly over the handle of my carry-on suitcase for when Colin was too tired to carry it himself and it fits perfectly under the airplane seat.
I highly recommend this product to all parents! It would make a great gift! Colin loves his Trunki and my older girls are so jealous that they both added Trunki to their birthday lists!
