Trunki Tote Bag
Advantages: stops everything falling out when you open the suitcase
Disadvantages: the cost, on top of an already expensive childs suitcase
I bought the Trunki 3 in 1 tote bag to go inside the Terrance Trunki suitcase that I was buying for my little nephew. My sister and I have recently started to take short weekend breaks away along with my little nephew and to make the airports and travelling parts of the weekends easier on both my sister and myself, and to make this slightly more enjoyable experience for my little nephew I bought him a Trunki - a ride on suitcase.
On the reccomendation of a few friends who have Trunkis already for their small children I bought the tote bag, they had said that because one half of the Trunki suitcase doesn't have any packing straps, when you open it things tend to fall out everywhere, this would then solve that problem.
I bought the 3 in 1 Trunki tote bag from the Trunki website along with the Terrance Trunki case and the matching wash bag. The tote bag was £12.99, and the postage was free if you spent over £25.00. I placed my order on the Saturday, and the items were delivered on the Wednesday.
The tote bag is available in 2 colourways; blue, green and orange to match Terrance the Trunki, and pink, purple and green to match Trixie the Trunki. I obviously bought the blue colourway.
The tote bag comes with a short carrying handle attached to the bag and a long adjustable shoulder strap with you can attach or detach from the bag according to your needs.
The tote bag fits perfectly into the side of the Trunki case that has no packing straps, the tote bag opens and closes with a zipper, you can either leave the tote bag inside the case and open and close the zipper to get things out or you can remove the tote bag completely, depending upon your needs.
We tend to ensure that the liitle one packs any books and snacks and things that he will want during the flight in the tote bag and then remove the whole tote bag once we are boarded. The tote bag then easily attaches to the back of an airplane seat (or even a car seat - so it's ideal for long car journeys too), everything he needs or wants is then right in front of him and everything is at hand to keep him quiet and occupied during the flight.
The tote bag has one large main zippered section, and then it has a pocket on the front, and then it has various pockets on the sides which are suitable for pens and pencils and suchlike.
This is an expensive addition to an already expensive childs suitcase, however I feel that this was worth getting as I can see that the design of the Trunki suitcase would have meant that most things would have fallen out each time we opened it. I can only imagine the chaos that this would cause if you needed to open the Trunki and get things out mid-flight! As it is we just remove the tote bag with everything in that is needed and then put the whole tote bag back in the Trunki when we are at the end of the flight.
I am definately pleased that we purchased this tote bag in addition to Terrance the Trunki suitcase, and I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend it to anyone buying a Trunki.
