Anyone who has read my blog recently will know that we are of on our first foreign holiday in 9 years. This means it will be the first time L has been on a plane, so I’m trying to be really organised to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Part of that preparation is L’s new Trunki.
I’ll be honest I’ve always fancied getting L a Trunki, so when they contacted me to see we’d like to review one I was over the moon. The timing was perfect and I just knew L was going to love it.
There are so many different designs to choose from but knowing my boy as I do I went for the new Rocco the Race Car Trunki. A little red number with race car wheels, go faster flames and flag and number detailing. It also comes with a bumper pack of stickers so you can personalise it as you want.
It was all I could do to keep L from decorating his Trunki there and then, but it was getting late so he had to go to bed. Besides, Trunki decorating is important business, best done after a full nights sleep.
The Trunki really is amazing for many reasons. It is tough. It can be ridden, woo hoo for the long walks in the airport. It is hand luggage friendly. The pulling handle converts to the carry handle, perfect for when L gets bored and I have to carry it. On that same strap is the key for the two locks on the Trunki. Inside the Trunki there is a little pouch, great for things you don’t want to get lost. They have even thought about the inside straps, calling them a teddy seatbelt.
Admittedly we’ve not been to the airport with our Trunki yet but we have already got plenty of use out of it as L has had a couple of sleepovers. I cannot believe how much it holds.
When he went to my sisters I packed:
- Toothpaste, toothbrush and flannel all in the little pouch
- Two sets of clothes – trousers, t-shirt, socks and pants
- A fleece jumper
- A bin van toy
- A very large book, playmat and toy set
- A fleece blanket, fitted sheet and waterproof sheet (just in case)
- A crocodile
That is a lot of stuff. In fact the only thing I couldn’t fit in was his Marshall from Paw Patrol pillow. I fitted it all in with ease.
The Trunki has little features I like too. Like the rubber round the edges, so even when it’s opened up there’s nothing sharp and if fingers were to be reaching in as you were doing up it wouldn’t be too painful. Inside the Trunki you can re-position the little storage pouch so it suits you and L likes to hide tiny little toys in the corner hidey holes.
Of course we have decorated Rocco. He put lights on and added racing decorations, as well as a speedo and rev counter. It’s so cute.
He loves his Trunki so much he took it to bed with him!! I honestly believe it’s going to help us in the airport, we’ll be able to pop loads of bits in there to keep him occupied and it will make the queuing and the walking easier to deal with.

Good luck xx
