Pros - fits under the seat easily when flying, rolls easily and isn't too bad with tipping over when you turn, and the kiddo loves it.
It's also great fun for her to ride while we pull her along to the terminal. Keeps her from running off, we don't need to carry her, win-win.
Weight - it's very, very light.
It has a surprising amount of room inside
Cons - The kid can't work the latches. She's smart enough to know how, but the button on the side is so stiff she can't press it in far enough to unlock it.
The shoulder/tow strap hooks are very thick plastic. Thick enough that it's hard for my wife to push in the clip to unhook it from the trunk.
The hinge design needs some work. The plastic barrels on each side are C-chaped so they clip onto the hinge pin rather than have the pin pushed through from the end. This isn't a huge deal, but the barrel on either end comes un-clipped very easily, which keeps the trunk from closing. You have to open it all the way and maneuver the hinge back together. This is not fun to deal with while crammed into coach seating on a flight and trying to keep all the books and toys from falling out - which leads me to the next Con...
The trunk is a simple clam-shell, with a very shallow pocket on the bottom of one side, and an elastic X. If you're storing clothes under the X, and they're large enough to cover the whole width of the lid, then no problem. However, our 2yo doesn't wear clothes that large, so they were constantly falling out and/or getting pinched when we tried to close it. As for the other side... make absolutely sure that side is down when you open it, because there isn't anything holding her stuff in. Just picture yourself trying to find all the books and toys that just fell out and slid around under the airplane seats while people are going up and down the isle and you'll begin to see why this is annoying. Sure Trunki makes a bag you can buy, but why not put an elastic-mesh net over it to begin with? Cheap, easy, effective... but then Trunki wouldn't sell the tote bags.
Overall, I'd probably buy this again for the price Amazon had, but not for full retail. I'd also spend some time tinkering with it to make it more user friendly... although I'd probably leave the latches alone to keep her little exploring hands out of it during inconvenient times. I should also note that we saw about 5 other kids with them in the airports.
