The Ultimate Kids Luggage for Globetrotting Families

Do you remember the delight of having your very own suitcase as a child? Packing up your little world, ready for an adventure? As it turns out, your child’s fondness for luggage could be an excellent tool for your travel plans. (For one thing, luggage featuring fun prints or your child’s favourite colours can spark their enthusiasm to carry their own bags!) 

When choosing kids’ luggage, the experts at Samsonite recognise that there’s more to the decision-making process than meets the eye. Apart from the usual factors like size, weight, and durability, other considerations take centre stage. Factors such as a child’s size and personality become equally important. For example, adjustable handles are excellent for children who are still growing, while ride-on suitcases are a hit with young ones. 

At Samsonite, you’ll find that these considerations have been beautifully woven into their kids’ luggage collection. The result? An array of suitcases that aren’t just luggage, but partners in your child’s adventures.  So, let’s embark on this exciting journey of exploring the ultimate kids’ luggage solution!

Cracking the Code of Kids’ Luggage

Choosing a suitcase for your child is more than just picking a cute design. It’s about durability, convenience, and safety. So, what makes a piece of kids’ luggage the best choice?

Functionality and Durability – The Essentials of Good Kids Luggage

When it comes to kids luggage bags, functionality and durability aren’t just selling points. They’re the bread and butter of a reliable travel companion for your child. After all, luggage for children needs to do more than just look good.

Functionality is all about thoughtful design elements that make travel easier. For instance, multiple compartments can help children organise their belongings, teaching them about order and responsibility. Similarly, a good luggage bag will offer features such as robust wheels for easy manoeuvring, especially helpful in busy airports or train stations.

On the other hand, durability ensures that the luggage withstands the test of time (and energetic children!). A durable suitcase won’t just survive the occasional knock or drop; it will continue to function smoothly trip after trip. Hence, a hardy shell, preferably made of materials like ABS or polycarbonate, is a must.

With this in mind, the search for the perfect kids luggage bag becomes less about buying a product and more about investing in a reliable travel mate for your child’s globetrotting adventures.

Size Matters – The Dimensions of Samsonite Kids Luggage

Wondering, “What are the dimensions of Samsonite kid’s luggage?” A crucial aspect when choosing a suitcase for your child is the size. Samsonite offers a variety of sizes to suit children of all ages. Whether it’s a small case for your toddler or a larger one for your teenager, there’s a perfect fit for everyone. But we’ll cover that in a little more detail in a bit.

It’s Not Just a Bag, It’s a Style Statement

Why stop at one bag when your child can have a matching set? Kids’ luggage sets from Samsonite offer the practicality of co-ordinated bags and make a bold style statement. From backpacks to wheeled suitcases, these sets bring a coordinated, chic look to your child’s travel gear.

Make It Personal – The Charm of Personalised Kids Luggage

To make their kid’s luggage truly special, Samsonite offers personalised luggage options. You can tailor your child’s luggage from embossed initials to favourite characters to reflect their unique personality. A personalised suitcase stands out on the luggage carousel and sparks joy in your child’s travels.

What Is the Best Suitcase for Kids?

A valid question that begs an answer is: What is the best suitcase for kids? We believe that the best suitcase combines practicality, durability, and a dash of fun. A suitcase that a child loves, that lasts, and that makes travelling easier. By these criteria, it’s clear that Samsonite’s range ticks all the right boxes.

Its 4-wheel design ensures stability, while the roomy 28L compartment has plenty of space for your child’s belongings. Best of all, with familiar Disney characters featured on the front, it’s a hit with kids.

Consider too, Samsonite’s Disney Ultimate 2.0 Spinner. It’s a four-wheeled suitcase that comes in a compact 46cm size, perfect for your little one to manage. This suitcase blends the worlds of practicality and magic seamlessly. Crafted with Samsonite’s renowned quality, it ensures durability to withstand the rigours of travel, and its smart design features, such as its smoothly spinning wheels, make it easy to handle.
