So far with not going on many big holidays we have never needed a suitcase for Lily and she has only really just got to the age where she could use her own suitcase. But we were planning to move house and so I thought it was the perfect time to introduce her to having her own one. With knowing how amazing Trunki suitcases are, I got in touch with them to see if they would like to be included in a blog post all about moving. Which you can read here.
I think that Trunki Suitcases are great for children who are moving house as knowing they have their own special suitcase that they can pack their own special items in can definetly help make the move a less scary thing. Trunki agreed and they sent Lily her very own Una Trunki for us to use for the move and review.
The good thing about Una the Unicorn is that you can personalise it with stickers which make it even more their own special little suitcase.
I just love how colourful the Una Trunki is. Its nice that its a lovely pale blue colour instead of pink which would make it very girly. It also has pretty stars and has yellow wheels and handles and a colourful rainbow tail made of super soft hair. Lily loved the rainbow tail and kept brushing it with her hands. So did I actually haha.
The case is shut toggether with a fastening on the front and the back. It took me a few moments to figure out how to get it open and then I realised it was a button you pressed and then you flip the fastening open. Quite easy when you know how.
Inside the case are your own special glitter stickers and a Trunki Passport that you can fill in all about yourself. There are also straps that you can fasten toggether to keep all the luggage safely kept tucked neatly inside.
First thing Lily did before we even started to place things on it was hop on for a ride. I didn't even have to show her that you could ride on it. She just knew and climbed on easily without my help. She looked so pleased with it and started to push herself around the room saying WEEEEEEE. The Trunki also comes with a lead you can attach so you can pull the suitcase along while your child rides on top. This wasn't an aspect of it we would be using during the move but its going to be perfect when we next take a trip to the train station or an airport.
Next thing to do was personalise the Trunki with stickers. Lily is mad on stickers so she was really excited to get to do this. The stickers are so colourful and they all sparkle with glitter. There are thunderbolts, stars, diamonds, rainbows and hearts. Also a special horn that you can stick to the front. Lily did really well with sticking the stickers on. There are plenty of them and plenty of room on the Trunki to fill. I think she made her Trunki look very pretty, though there was a little help from me where I helped encourage her to stick them in different places. Lily has taken to enjoying sticking stickers all in one place at the moment.
The last thing to do with the Trunki is pack it. I encouraged Lily to choose her favourite items that she wanted to move to the new house with. She chose her Cat Teddy, A DVD, a Hat, a Book, her Dummy and we also placed in lots of clothing for Nan's house as that is where she will be staying for a few days. We really could have placed a lot more in our Trunki as there was so much room in there.
It really is going to be used so much, from visits to family's house to our weekends away and holidays.
The Trunki is £39.99 and well worth the money. It really does make the perfect suitcase for your little ones.
