Pack, lug, ride in style
Children love having their own suitcases, but they rarely love carrying them, so parents end up toting the kids and the kid stuff. With the Trunki, when your tot is too tired to drag the bag around she can sit on it and ride. The hard-sided, wheeled carry-on is made for 3- to 6-year-olds. It holds riders up to 110 pounds and has a five-gallon capacity, plenty for everything a child needs in-flight. About $40 at Magic Beans (312 Harvard St., Brookline, 617-264-2326) and online at littlejetset.com and trunki.net.
