An Overview On Kids Luggages

Traveling with your kids can be equal parts challenging and joyful, but the right luggage can take some stress off your plate. Age-appropriate luggage makes it easier for kids to help pack their own suitcases and pull them along in an airport, and long waits feel a little easier with your child’s favorite cartoon characters on their suitcase.

Kids’ luggage is often a miniature version of adult luggage, but some suitcases come with child-friendly perks. For example, some models can transition from an insulated lunchbox to a bookbag to a suitcase. The Trunki Kids Ride-On Carry-On Luggage lets your child ride on top while you pull the suitcase along.

Some features are extra-important when you’re buying luggage for kids. Wheeled suitcases are much easier for them to pull, and rubber-lined edges can prevent owies. Dedicated pockets for tablets and other toys will also help car rides or security lines go by quickly.

DWYM Fun Fact

You can find thousands of different suitcases when you’re shopping online, but travelers had far fewer options a century ago. Suitcases didn’t exist at all until the late 1800s (wealthy travelers used huge steamer trunks instead), but as travel became cheaper and more accessible, suitcases gained popularity.

The earliest suitcases had steel frames and were covered with leather or wicker, and they were designed to literally carry suits and not much else. By the 1950s and 60s, suitcases had lighter alloy frames covered in synthetic fabrics. 

The first wheeled suitcase was patented in the 1970s to keep up with modern airport needs. Consumers needed to be able to handle their own luggage instead of handing it off to attendants. The air travel industry continues to impact the luggage industry, with specialty luggage for electronics (and smaller luggage for children) making waves in the modern era.

The Kids Luggage Buying Guide

  • The age and size of your child is the most important thing to think about when you’re buying luggage for them. Lighter materials, like canvas or scratch-resistant fabric, will be easier for a very young child to work with. If the luggage has a telescoping handle, make sure it’s not too tall for your child.
  • Always look at the measurements and weight of children’s luggage before you buy it to make sure it’s large enough for everything they need without being too heavy.
  • If you’re on a budget, try to buy luggage that will grow with your child. The animated characters they love this year might not interest them next year, so bright prints or designs might be a better choice.
  • Let your child practice carrying and wheeling around their luggage before you set off on your trip. This will reduce the risk of luggage wheels running over little toes when you’re in an airport.
