Suitcase Choices for kids


April 21, 2013 by Terumi

So the guys have decided that they no longer need their trunkis for travel.  I found this cool one a little while ago that would let them skoot around, but they are convinced they want to travel ‘like grown-ups’ so I decided not to get it.

What do you use for travel with kids?  Any recommendations before we make the plunge and buy one?  Or which of these three would you buy?  They’re all around the same price.

    I know! It’s totally hard to figure out how long they’ll use them for and if it’s worth the cost. They used their trunkis for about two years so that seemed like a good investment.

  3. […] ones.  I’m thankful that the guys chose some pretty easily manageable suitcases.  (Yes, Samsonite-we went with you guys!).  We also had more luggage than we usually do because we had two different […]
