Have you traveled with your kids before? You’re reading this blog so you probably have or are planning to. I don’t know about your kids, but ours love to have their suitcase or bag with them. Buying luggage for kids gives them a sense of responsibility, and makes them feel important. And they learn that place is limited so that extra box of toys or those pretty choices just don’t fit in there.

In this article, we’ll show you our best picks of rolling luggage for kids. From ride-ons for toddlers to lovely trolleys for kids and cool suitcases or hybrid backpacks for teens.

What to consider before buying luggage for kids?

You’re buying for kids! So it should be lightweight, easy to handle, not too big, and fun. Although the design is important for children, remember to consider other things as well.

Frequency and kind of travel

First, a lot depends on what kind of vacation you’re planning. If you’re planning a lot of hikes, camping, or traveling through rough terrains, you might be better off with a backpack. Or one of those amazing hybrid suitcases that can transform from a trolley into a backpack. However, the smaller the child, the smaller the backpack. So think it true, because your little ones won’t be able to carry a heavy backpack.

Do you travel a lot? Then you better buy a really durable and probably more expensive piece. The materials used here will last much longer and endure more flights. And you don’t want to end up with a broken suitcase and crying child at the airport.


Another thing to consider is the ergonomic design and comfort. If the travel bag is not easy to roll or carry, you’ll have to handle it. And that wasn’t the plan when you bought it! The more comfortable and easy to carry, the happier your child will be!

Does the suitcase or backpack offer any extra benefits, such as pockets? And last but not least, check the warranty. Companies who trust their own products, give a good warranty.

Let’s dive into our top choices for travel luggage for kids with wheels. We’ve used some of the brands we mention here but not all of course. So this list is based on a mix of our own experiences, friends’ reviews and some brands we just know are amazing. If you have anything to add, just let us know in the comments!
