Suitcases on wheels are great! If you’ve got younger big kids (6-7 years old), these are a good option. The downside here is that the scooter does eat into the storage space the bag offers.
This scooter does not take up any of the suitcase space so there is ample room to pack! Another benefit of these particular bags is that the scooter completely disconnects from the bag so you can use them at your destination
If you’re looking for luggage ideas for toddlers, buy them the rolling backpacks from Pottery Barn Kids.The backpacks fit under the seat in front of you, so you don’t have to stress about overhead space . And if you're running to a connection, parents can throw them on their back with the straps.
This is a great portable container. You can only open one section at a time. So if you go over a big bump, your kids aren’t going to toss ALL their snacks on the floor.
