MY KIDS ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE SUMMER VACATION.
AND WE’VE GOT SEVERAL HOLIDAYS PLANNED.
I’ve always believed that travel is beneficial to kids. It not only exposes them to new places and things, but it is also one of the best bonding moments for families.
That said….I need to get the kids a new travel bag.
In choosing a travel bag for my little ones, I consider these factors:
1). Design– should be sturdy, functional, and cute
2). Price— of course
3). Weight— not too heavy for my youngsters to carry
4) Age appropriateness — my boy is 9 and my daughter is 12, so the bags should suit their tastes
There are so many travel bags for kids sold online. The following are five of the models I’m considering:
HELLO KITTY GIRL’S 18″ HARDSIDE 3D SPINNER CARRY ON LUGGAGE
Here’s one thing I know about Hello Kitty– anything with this iconic character on it will be acceptable even to teenage girls. So I’m very confident my daughter will like this luggage. It is lightweight at around 4 pounds. It is easy to maneuver with 360 degree spinner wheels. Plus, the interior is spacious.
WILDKIN ROLLING DUFFEL BAG
My son could like this rolling luggage from Wildkin. The handle can be extended to make it easier to roll. The compartment outside is zippered and best used for storing essential items. Inside, there’s enough room to pack for up to a week’s worth of clothes.
HOLLYHOME ROLLING LUGGAGE
This is a practical choice because he can also use this eventually in school. Inside, there’s a large compartment that can hold numerous items. There is also a thick, foam-padded compartment where a 16 inch laptop can be stored. And it’s easy to clean.
AMERICAN TOURISTER DISNEY MINNIE MOUSE RED BOW SOFTSIDE SPINNER
Not the cheapest in the list but could be the best in terms of value, this 21-inch luggage has a large packing compartment inside. It’s a bit heavy at nearly 7 pounds but it can also be indicative of the build quality.
AMERICAN TOURISTER DISNEY MINNIE MOUSE POLKA DOT SOFTSIDE SPINNER 21
This is practically the same as the preceding item but with one major difference: the design. The polka dot design, I feel, is not as loud as that of the red bow design. It thus should ‘age’ far better than the other product, meaning my daughter won’t be ashamed to use it even when she hits her teen years.
