I was in the airport one day and I saw a child riding on their luggage. I thought that it was the coolest thing. When my youngest saw the child riding on the cool looking luggage she right away told me that she wanted one. Honestly, I really wanted luggage that I could ride on when I saw it!
Take a look at what is called the Trunki
You have to see Trunki in action so here is a little video to see what it is all about:
So before you get too excited like me and go for a ride on one, you have to know that the maximum weight allowed is 100 pounds. It is recommended for ages 3 and up. Trunki is very lightweight (when it is empty). One of the best things about Trunki is that it is airline approved as a carry on baggage as per the Melissa and Doug website, which is the maker of Trunki.
Trunkis come in 6 different colors (pink, blue, red, purple, orange and green). There is sure to be a color that your little one will love.
Until March 3rd, 2011 you can receive free shipping from Melissa and Doug for any orders over $30 to the USA with the code FREESHIP30.
I have been looking everywhere in Canada since I saw my first Trunki. I finally saw one at a local store. They seem to be very hard to find in Canada as far as I can tell.
