Bags and suitcases for all ages

0

When traveling with children, whether by car, plane or train, it makes sense that they have their own luggage.

There are all kinds of advantages for children to have their own suitcases or bags: On the one hand, it is exciting for them because they will feel a real sense of belonging. It will also help children with their own travel responsibilities. Plus, if you’ve crammed their items into your own luggage, you’ll free up valuable space.

There are a few factors to keep in mind when choosing a children’s bag or suitcase. Size and weight are important, as well as construction, durability and price. There’s also the issue of aesthetics: toddlers, tweens, and teens will have decidedly different preferences. Your own taste matters too, as chances are you will find yourself dragging your child’s luggage at least occasionally (and especially for the little ones).

Take a look at these functional – and cute! – bags and suitcases to take with you for your child on their next trip.
