How to pack your Trunki Share on email Print this article Share on Facebook How to pack your Trunki story by: Anna Sarjeant Reading time: 3 minutes! The Trunki, if you weren’t already aware, is a revolutionary children's suitcase that doubles up as a ride-on toy. Knowing that mum’s suggested contents would be sensible and dad’s the complete opposite, we decided to ask brothers, Boston (7) and Ryder (4) what they’d pack in theirs. Boston / AGE: 7 WOULD LIKE TO GO TO: FIJI With all the stresses of school, maths and playground politics, Boston would like to relax and unwind in Fiji. WHAT HE’D PACK: • A notebook. Nice. • Pens. Yup. • Food. Sensible. • Milk. Okaaaay. • Water. Such a wise young man. • Chocolate. A very, very wise young man. Upon realising he may not have room for all six items, Boston drops the milk. Ryder / AGE: 4 WOULD LIKE TO GO TO: JAPAN Currently donning a ninja headband, Ryder would mostly like to go to Japan for the Pokémon. WHAT HE’D PACK: • A phone. Obvs. • Lego. Definitely good to have toys to play with. • Chocolate. Interesting. • Milk. Well this is uncanny. • Sultana Bran. The number one holiday essential? • Underpants. Because there’s nothing worse than an inadequate amount of underpants. FAST TRUNKI FACTS ★ The Trunki's dimensions are: 46cm x 20.5cm x 31cm ★ 18 litre internal capacity ★ Weighs 1.7kg ★ Suitable for most hand luggage - always check with you airline first ★ There are built-in soft rubber rims to stop fingers getting caught! ★ Stabilisers to prevent accidents. TOP TIPS Chocolate and Sultana Bran aside, here are an additional six items to consider popping in your Trunki: • Activity books & storybooks: Anything that will occupy their time. • Pencil case: With pens, crayons, stickers etc. • Toys: A favourite teddy or their favourite figurines will help if there are tantrums. • Change of clothes: Underpants aside, children do spill things on themselves. • Snacks: Perhaps something healthier than chocolate. • Wet wipes and plastic bags: For all the mess they’re going to make on the plane. • Checklist: With all of the above, remember that hand luggage which includes liquids and gels come with restrictions - check before you fly!
