Beatrix NY Luggage

beatrix 115x150 Beatrix NY LuggageI did a lot of searching online for tips on how to travel with a toddler – but friends in my very child-centric Brooklyn neighborhood had the best advice: get a special, child-sized wheelie suitcase for your toddler, fill it with toys, and let your son or daughter personally wheel the mini-suitcase down to the car/train/airplane. My friends were right!

My 2 year old loved having a magical treasure chest of his very own – LOVED being seen in the airport with his own “suitcase” –  and the ritual of opening the suitcase and taking out a toy gave us many opportunities to occupy our son on a very long flight. The key, for me, was finding an adorable kid’s suitcase – not just a mini-adult suitcase. And, eventually, I found it – and one that didn’t feature some overly-commercialized children’s character, either! (no Dora, no Elmo, no Barney – love them or hate them, sometimes I just want something more original).

Beatrix NY luggage offers a full collection of quality children’s luggage with modern and super-cool characters that (i) have style; and (ii) are not over-exposed. It was great to find something that was appealing to both my toddler and me. They are made out of a durable nylon and the large characters are embroidered. The bags come with an adjustable handle so it fits a toddler as well as an adult-sized arm. The same creatures also are featured on the Beatrix NY collection of backpacks, lunch boxes, etc. – so if your little one loves the suitcase, you can pick up a matching piece.

Giving my son his own luggage and allowing him to be “responsible” for it made him feel like a big boy. And, it was endearing to see him rise to the challenge of lugging it around the airports. My son was a tad too small to pull it. But, he was great at pushing it! I think in another 6 months it would be a fine pulling size especially if it isn’t over-filled. The bag is sure to grow with him and since it is great quality I expect it to last for years. Beatrix NY luggage wheelie bags are a travel must-have for our family from now on! ($94.00)
