Are you thinking of buying kids suitcase for your child on your next trip? It is probably time to give your child a responsibility of choosing stuff to pack. This is an excellent decision especially if your child is four years old and above. I have compiled a guide and some tips in order to help you buy the best suitcase for your kid.
Why Buy A Luggage For Your Kid?
A family trip does not have to be stressful whether it will be an out of the country holiday, a cross-country adventure or just a week-long visit at grandma’s house. One of the best strategies in travelling with kids is to let them get involved from start to finish. It is the perfect time to teach your kids some lessons on travelling and to emphasize to your kids the value of being responsible.
Begin with providing each kid her or his luggage. Your child will definitely feel the sense of kiddie pride once he or she can call a luggage his or her own. They will feel they are a grown-up travelling and will feel important.
It might be easier to just toss your kid’s clothes and other stuff inside your luggage but sharing the work with them will be fun. It also teaches them to be savvy and safe travellers. Buying them their personal suitcase will allow them to learn how important to make a packing list and pack their own stuff.
Kids Suitcase Guide #1: Before you buy a luggage for your kid, I highly encourage you to know first the policies of your favorite airline. Let’s say, the airline’s excess baggage fee is such a huge price for you. I would suggest that you choose a backpack for your kid instead of a rolling case.
I also advise you to choose a luggage bag for your kid whether it is a backpack or with wheels that you can easily carry. Your kid might be excited to bring his or her luggage on his or her own during the first few days of your trip. However, when your kid feels cranky, you have no choice but to carry it. I suggest you look for a luggage that has wheels and detachable shoulder strap at the same time in order for you to carry whatever you want.
Kids Suitcase Guide #2: If you are only planning to buy a luggage for your child, I suggest you tag them along where you intend to buy his or her luggage. Guide them on how to make a great buy plus let your kid know the budget you have allotted in buying for his or her luggage. Let your kid pick his or her own luggage.
A good tip that you can tell your kid is to choose a bright luggage or something that will stand out. This would make it easier to be spotted in the airport just in case it will get lost.
Where To Buy?
You have the option to buy from online sellers or from luggage shops. I highly recommend that you buy from luggage shops especially if you are tagging along your little traveller. Your kid must experience choosing his or her first luggage purchase.
Give your child an extra thrill of packing his or her stuff for your upcoming holiday adventure. Allowing them to pack their own kids suitcase will make them feel empowered and responsible.
