The Trunki range of ride-on traval cases turns out to be something of a fad. As a frequent flyer with small children the idea sounds great in theory but just has not been used much in practice. It is too bulky for a child to properly manipulate themselves and is not easy enough to weave around a busy airport while pulling someone small along. Considering most airlines permit buggies to be brought right up to the gate there is no particular need this box fills.

The Trixie version of the Trunki does look ok in pink. When it first arrived it drew attention and interest from a 4 year old who filled it with various toys and accessories. In the time since, a backpack has done the job better and is easier to slide under a seat so is much more accessible whil travelling. A Trunki needs to go in an overhead locker which is fine but no real help if a child gets bored on board.

The only real use this Trunki has had is being pulled around the house in simulation of using a suitcase. Even then its inability to turn corners is a pain so it has not really been the focus of play.

The structure of Trixie is fine. It is solid enough and seems likely to hold up to use. The wheels are fine in a straight line and the strap has held up to its minimal usage.

The problem is just that there is not much of a need for this product. If it did have real value it would be seen at airports all over. For the kind of flyer with status due to frequent flying, it just never really seems to be being used by other travellers as for small children it is less useful than a buggy and for slightly bigger ones it does not have the versatility to help when navigating a crowded airport.

Ok - so is a great looking case for kids (the airport was full of them so them must be doing something right), sadly ours is just too young to want to sit on it or drag it too far (not the fault of the product). Again probably not the fault of the product but doesn't hold as much as you'd think - we tried to stuff too much into it (as you would you're own bag!) but the plastic hinge on the bottom couldn't cope and bent out of shape meaning it was difficult to close and now they are distorted. The internal straps don't really do the job you'd expect and stuff does fall around. Definitely does fit under the seat in front (we were on EasyJet) and leaves space for adult legs. All in all probably too expensive for what it really is a plastic box on wheels with a face on it - sorry but was expecting more.

Bought this for my three year old grand daughter and she loves it. As she has a passion for 'packing' this has been a boon to take on holiday with a selection of toys for her to play with plus she can ride it or pull it along. Good sturdy construction, however, clasps are a little tricky to undo. Otherwise great.

Daughter cannot wait to take a ride on it as soon as it arrives. Quality feels sturdy so hopefully it will last a few years.

Nice but heavy for a toddler to carry. Yes he can push but still heavy.
