Wandering around airports with tantrum-chucking little ones in tow is enough to put you off going on holiday in the first place. So thank heavens for Trunki, the revolutionary ride-on suitcase for kids.
Colourful, fun and super-stable, Trunki features integrated wheels, steering 'horn' grips and a contoured saddle allowing kids to safely ride their luggage through the terminal. And if they tire of yee-hah-ing around duty free they can take Trunki for walkies using its sturdy towing strap. Genius!
Lots of space for the toys
Make sure teddy is comfortable
Take Trixie for a ride!
Keep your kids in tow
As well as its supreme ride-ability, this award-winning case features secure catches, soft rubber rims to prevent little fingers getting caught when reaching for books, games and clothes, and a secret compartment for sweets and treats.
Despite its generous 18L capacity you needn't worry about waving bye-bye to Trunki at check-in because it's hand luggage approved. This means kids can enjoy the thrill of carrying/riding their very own case from check-in to boarding. They can also relax on Trunki, laughing, pointing and blowing raspberries when your luggage fails to turn up at the other end. (Insert your own T5 joke here).
Made from the same durable plastic as grown-up cases, Trunki weighs in at a mere 1.7kg, so assuming teddy isn't made of lead pulling it along is a breeze, even for youngsters. And when the old 'I'm tired now' refrain kicks in, simply tell 'em the last one to the departure gate is a rotten egg and has to eat airline food for a month.

Available in several characterful colour schemes (blue, pink and special firebox orange with tiger stripes) Trunki is the perfect size for children aged around 3-6. And before you ask, no, it doesn't come in adult sizes. Bah!
Suitable for 3+ years
50kg Max weight
18 litre capacity
Do not check in Airplane Hold
Trunki fits very comfortably within the new relaxed UK hand luggage restrictions of 56cm x 45cm x 25cm
Trunki comes with strong catches to keep your prize possessions nice and safe
Trunki strap hooks are very strong and child friendly, so you can keep your kids in tow
Trunki is very light-weight at only 1.7 KG, 3.8 Pounds, making it easy to carry and store in overhead luggage compartments
Trunki is made out of the same plastic that adult suitcases are made with, so he is very durable and can be ridden by several toddlers. We recommend you don't exceed 50KG of load and that you don't check Trunki at the check in desk.
Trunki is hand luggage approved
Trunki was designed to prevent children damaging their backs carrying heavy bags, we have built in a soft rim to prevent little fingers getting caught shutting the case and designed stabilisers to prevent children from easily falling off
The Trunki also comes with a ID tag, in case you lose your tot or if you're travelling in Terminal 5!

Didn't this feature on Dragon's Den? I'm sure Theo or Peter Jones broke it...have they fixed that issue? N. Fraser, Bolton - 21st March 2010

I got two Trunkis for my little cousins (4 & 2) when we were all flying to South Africa - they are great! But all the adults in our group, myself included had only one complaint - WE WANT BIGGER ONES FOR US!!! Jo, Herts - 13th January 2010
Amazing for 4-6 year old children. My girl Nicole, 5 years old loves it. Wow, what an amazing toy to have. Grez, Wales - 7th May 2009
Firebox says: We're glad to hear Nicole is enjoying it!
These are really great and my nephew loves his, but I think they should definitely come in adults sizes too! Kaleigh Ingram, Herefordshire - 14th October 2008
