Finding a quality suitcase for my son has been extremely challenging. I speak from experience when I say most children’s wheelie bags generally fall into one or all of these categories:
• Adorable but overpriced
• Poorly made
• Poorly designed
If you purchase a child’s suitcase online based purely on its cutsie looks, it could end up sitting in your garage collecting dust because it’s not capable of withstanding the vigors of travel. To save money and to keep your garage clutter free, I highly recommend purchasing a Beatrix New York Wheelie Bag. Not only are these bags uber attractive, they’re also built Ford tough.
Beatrix is a company dedicated to creating hip, modern stuff for kids. Their products combine a child-like love of creativity with a grown-up sense of flair. Beatrix’s products are phthalate free, PVC free, and lead free.
My son’s Wheelie Bag is not only adorable and colorful; it’s also the only child’s suitcase I’ve ever owned that’s actually built to be used as a suitcase! Hallelujah!
This jet-setting suitcase is made of heavyweight nylon over a durable frame and has an adjustable handle with multiple lock settings to accommodate his growing body. The exterior has a large zipped pocket (perfect for stashing DVD’s) and an additional zip pocket can be found in its roomy interior.
Since I’ve taken all the leg work out of finding the perfect suitcase for your child, it would be a shame not to purchase one! Luckily, Beatrix New York has graciously offered Trekaroo readers 20% off any Wheelie Bag purchase made until March 25, 2012 with code TREKAROO20!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary wheelie bag in order to complete my review and facilitate the giveaway. Beatrix New York did not ask that I state a particular opinion. All opinions are my own.
