Fabulous and cute storage but didn't work in the airport.
on 18 May 2016
We've just been on holiday with my daughter and family and a couple of weeks before she mentioned that she'd ordered her son a Trunki from Amazon to use, I said if she'd asked me I would have told her not to bother since in my (admittedly limited) experience they don't work in airports.
Now I have to stay nothing has changed my opinion of this (more later) but the Trunki itself is fabulous, it held all his toys for the holiday, it looks cute and would be perfect for overnight stays and he likes it so much he uses it at home to move his toys around.
We tried it in the airport, sitting him on and pulling but I don't know if he was too young (he's two years old) I suspect he is, maybe it would work better with older children but after a couple of minutes it was being carried again.
While we were travelling I noticed two other trunki's and both were being carried by the parents and when you have other bags it's not necessarily the easiest thing to carry.
My only other experience with these was a few years ago when a group of us met up in France for a birthday, the ones with older or no children drove and took the bulk of stuff required including cake, decorations etc the ones with young children flew over. Two of these had trunki's and long story short we brought them back in the car with us since apparently it had been a nightmare trying to navigate two children, two trunki's plus hand luggage through the airport and was "never to be repeated" so while I now think the Trunki's are fabulous I would never take one through an airport again and while you could argue that maybe my grandson is just too young our friends children were older and so were the ones in the airport and I've yet to see one not being carried.
So in my opinion the Trunki is great, it holds more an expected and looks cute but I wouldn't personally advise anyone to take one through an airport, if you do I'd advise you to use the free check in option available for cabin bags.
