Back in 2006, a couple of designers entered BBC's Dragons Den, preparing to present their idea for the Trunki. The Trunki was a ride-on suitcase in a variety of patterns, that children can sit on whilst the parent uses the strap to pull them along.
Since then the childrens suitcase has seen a huge increase in popularity, as have some of its contemporaries. With the limit on how much you can check in, these suitcases are perfectly sized to pop in the overhead locker on the plane.
Children are often charmed by the concept of copying the rituals their parents often go through, even if it's something as mundane as packing a suitcase. Minature suitcases gives them that opportunity.
The Tipu Trunki on the right is £34.99, but it's not the only option. We've rounded up four more budget-friendly options for children of all ages.
