10 of the best cases for children

Travelling with children can sometimes be stressful in its own right, so make it easier by investing in a child friendly suitcase, allowing them to be responsible for their belongings. At BagsDirect, we have a huge selection of child friendly luggage which have been decorated to suit children of all ages. Here are just ten of the collections that have been designed with children in mind…

1) Trunki Ride On Cases


We have a huge range of Trunki ride on cases designed for the younger travellers. They are the perfect hand luggage size, meaning you do not have to worry about checking in an extra suitcase, and it is made from a durable yet lightweight plastic, making it incredibly hard wearing and tough. The Trunki is ideal for younger children, who might struggle to walk and stand for long periods of time, as the unique selling point for this collection is that it allows a young child to comfortably sit on top of the case, and be wheeled along. It is recommended for children aged three and above and is available from £31.49. We stock a huge variety of designs from bumble bees and tigers to Hello Kitty, so you can get one that your child will love. The cases are also available with lockable teddy bear seatbelts Horn grips for added stability and safety. 


2) American Tourister Marvel Legends

Our American Tourister Marvel Legends collection is brilliant for all those superhero lovers out there. All cases are available in different sizes, depending on the age of the child, and the nature of travel. All of the cases feature retro comic prints of all their favourite superhero’s such as Hulk, Thor, Iron Man and Captain America, so they can walk through the airport in style. These cases are better suited to older children, who will carry their case the whole time. American Tourister are notorious for their high quality cases, and the Marvel Legends collection is no different. All cases have 4 smooth rolling 360 degree wheels, a hardwearing solid exterior, a combination lock, and different zipped sections, so you can keep your belongings organised.

For the very young traveller, there is a range of small backpacks that have been transformed into some of Disney’s much loved characters from Mickey, to Nemo and Dory. For the slightly older children, the collection has many matching backpacks and suitcases, which can either be bought separately, or teamed together to create an excellent luggage set. All of these have been designed with children in mind, so they are lightweight and comfortable to carry, whilst maintaining the high quality that you would expect from Samsonite.
