Trunki Tote Bag
Advantages: great for smaller items
If you had read my review on the Terrance Trunki that I had purchased for my nephew then this review will continue on from there, for those that haven't read it I will try and be brief on what lead me up to this purchase.
The Trunki suitcase that I had brought for my nephew was perfect in every way, bar one small flaw. My nephew put all of his toys in there for his trip and the first time we used it on the plane a lot of his smaller toys fell out when you opened it, which was very annoying. Due to the small space on the aeroplane there is no easy way of trying to open the suitcase and with all my nephews toys in there me and his mum must have opened it a number of times during the trip. There is a strap in the suitcase but this only olds the bigger items.
When I got back home I decided to look around and see if Trunki had designed anything to help with this problem and low and behold they had. There it was a Trunki tote bag and it came in blue and green, which matched Terrance's colour perfectly and it had a small price tag on Amazon of under £8. There are also pink Trunki bags for the girls.
The Trunki tote bag is a mesh bag that fits perfectly into one half of the Trunki, leaving you the other compartment to fill with either clothes or larger toys or items. Not only can this be used in the suitcase, when you are going away on a long journey in has clips on so that it can be clipped to the car or aeroplane seat for easy access during the journey.
If you need to carry the bag then you can also take the handle off Terrance the Trunki and attach it to the loops that are on the mesh tote bag instead to be able to carry it over your shoulder with ease.
My nephew loves it when he goes away we get Terrance and his bag out, he then gets to go through his toys and pick the ones he wants and puts them in his very own case. Making sure the smaller items and those needed during the journey are in the mesh bag, so once seated the bag can be attached to the chair in front so my nephew can easily access his toys during the journey. When you are ready to go it is easy to throw all of the toys back into the bag and pack it away into the empty half of the suitcase.
All of my nephew's trains, cars and animals fit in there perfectly, we also put in there any other toys he may like during the journey so that we do not have to open Terrance the Trunki again until the end of the journey when we are putting the back into the suitcase ready to be pulled through the airport.
Originally Terrance was only used for flights and filled with toys for the whole holiday, but Terrance is now also used for weekends away as well, as the toys go into the mesh bag in one half and his clothes in the other side.
When I purchased this from Amazon it clearly stated that it didn't come with a shoulder strap and that you would have to use your Trunki's one if needed. In reading some reviews a lot of people were surprised that it didn't have a strap with it.
Overall a great idea by Trunki they must have read my mind or read other people's reviews to create an accessory that would be worth every penny and help to take the stress out of taking children and all of their belongings away on holiday.
Summary: a worthy addition to your suitcase
