I normally would never write any review, but because the Trunki has such bad reviews I am going to write one this time. First to say, we have 4 kids under the age of 5 and we travel at least once a year to Germany with a 10 hour flight.
This year I found the Trunki suddenly on Amazon.com and was very hesitant to buy it because of the bad reviews.
I am sooooooooooo happy I did buy it.
I bought for my 4,5 year old Sunny (orange) and for my 3 and 2 year old 2 Trixis (pink).
From the start, they loved the suitcase. They where riding it around the house. They also said that these are their dogs.
I read that the suitcase sometimes opens unexpectedly and because I didn't want to deal with that I made a belt for the suitcase.
On the day of our big journey, we packed the suitcases with all kinds of things and made the belt around.
On the airport the kids where pulling the suitcases without any problems. When we had to wait in line for a long time, the kids sat on their suitcases and then drove around on them. People where turning right and left for us and asking where we got them.
After our 10 hour flight the kids where very tired and so we sat them on their suitcases and we pulled them all over the airport. The suitcase never tipped forward or to the side. They fit perfectly under the plane seats and in the over head storage.
Now after we are back and the suitcases where driven around 4 airports, I can say, that this is the best Idea ever.
We never lost any wheels, nothing broke and the snaps also never broke off.
We used the suitcases instead of a stroller and this was a really good idea.
So I can say, these suitcases are worth every penny and make your trips so much easier.
I hope this review helped a little bit, in making decisions about the Melissa & Doug Trunki.
That being said, she loved it. She used it as a seat when eating, played on it while we waited at the gate, and rode it while I pulled her through the airport. The case fits under the seat and the over head compartment easily. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that it doesn't turn easily. My daughter would use her legs to help me turn it and working together it went smooth. You have to slid the front wheels little by little to get it turning. It sounds like a pain in the butt but I was walking around the airport at a fast speed not thinking about it and I was able to weave in and out of people with minimum effort. The Trunki rolls over all the bumps we cam in contact with at the airport.Read more ›
At first glance, the quality looked good. Then when we tried to open the suitcase, one of the clasps popped off. We checked the instructions and there was actually a page that said that that might happen during "play," and there were instructions on how to fix it.
Suffice to say it took three adults a half an hour, a screw driver, and a file to fix the clasp. It popped back on just fine, but the plastic is cheap and so the mechanism that needed to slide was getting bent. It is possible that the first trip we take, the Trunki will break. If it does, I will return it immediately. I was really annoyed.
Also, the four "secret compartments" on the inside of the Trunki fit (seriously - my son experimented) about 5 jelly beans each. If you pushed. I have no idea what you would actually be able to put in there. I am also worried that the plastic hook that you fasten the strap to might break if the child was sitting on the luggage and being pulled.
On the plus side, there seems to be ample room inside the suitcase. The colors are nice and my son is excited to use it. I paid about 29 dollars for the Trunki. I do not think this is worth $40, but for $29, it is acceptable. As long as it doesn't break.
Update: We used this on a trip. The clasps broke off (both) and we cannot get them reattached, even the way Melissa and Doug says to. When my son sat on the Trunki in the airport, with the suitcase locked, the sides started to separate. We ended up having to tell him that he could not sit on it and my husband just carried it. Big disappointment.Read more ›

I love the idea of a child riding a piece of luggage that an adult pulls. It is completely made of plastic, so it understandably breaks easily. Read morePublished 3 months ago by chilena001
This is adorable but oh-so frustrating. It tips over very easily and my kids could never figure out where to put their feet to keep them out of the way when riding on it. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Alicia
