Best travel product for kids on the market!!,
This review is from: Melissa & Doug Trunki - Sunny (Orange) (Toy)Hi,
I normally would never write any review, but because the Trunki has such bad reviews I am going to write one this time. First to say, we have 4 kids under the age of 5 and we travel at least once a year to Germany with a 10 hour flight.
This year I found the Trunki suddenly on Amazon.com and was very hesitant to buy it because of the bad reviews.
I am sooooooooooo happy I did buy it.
I bought for my 4,5 year old Sunny (orange) and for my 3 and 2 year old 2 Trixis (pink).
From the start, they loved the suitcase. They where riding it around the house. They also said that these are their dogs.
I read that the suitcase sometimes opens unexpectedly and because I didn't want to deal with that I made a belt for the suitcase.
On the day of our big journey, we packed the suitcases with all kinds of things and made the belt around.
On the airport the kids where pulling the suitcases without any problems. When we had to wait in line for a long time,... Read more

This review is from: Melissa & Doug Trunki - Trixie (Pink) (Toy)
I really do like this suitcase plenty of room for a 3 year old to pack clothes, spare shoes, and a couple toys. We enjoyed using this suitcase in our travels recently.Our daughter was so excited to pull her suitcase and she has a rolley suitcase prior but this was fun and new and she loved that it also gave her a seat when we were in lines for our tickets or rental car. Also rode it a fair amount of time, she enjoyed that part as well however I will say in the airports when there is seem in the walkway it tends to catch and flipped her once but she got back on and rode again. Another con is it is very hard to steer with a child sitting on it it tends to want to go away from you to right or left, we could also tell the wheels won't last long so if you are a frequent traveler it may or may not be the key for you, but we did enjoy it and will be using it again on one of the next trips

great idea, great product,
This review is from: Melissa & Doug Trunki - Sunny (Orange) (Toy)I brought the Trunki for my 4 year old and was skeptical about it after looking at all the reviews about the trunk popping open. I pulled the trigger and bought it anyway thinking if it didn't last the trip I would return it. When it came in the mail I looked over the instructions and was scared to see special instructions on replacing the latch after it pops off. Taking a closer look at them I found that there is a few steps that you need to take to ensure the case wouldn't open. I made sure both clips slid down and locked them before letting my 4 year old on. I also didn't over stuff it with toys and stuffed animals. It worked great I didn't have any problems with the case opening. (I should mention I did have the saddle on it, however I tested it with and with out the saddle and it didn't matter the case stayed shut. I would recommend using the saddle if you think it will pop open because it would be extra security)
That being said, she loved it. She used it as... Read more
