Design Your Own Trunki! | Trunki Review


We have been fans of Trunki ride-ons for a long time now. The ride on suitcases are bright, colourful, hand luggage approved, and most definitely fun for little ones! We have had our Gerry the Giraffe Trunki for 3 years now, taking it on planes, trains and lots of UK breaks. But with three children one Trunki just isn't enough! So thanks to the team at Trunki, we have been sent one of their 'design your own' Trunkis to review.

As well as there being 21 different 'characters' to choose from, Trunki also have a fantastic 'design your own Trunki' option, giving you (or your child) over 1 billion different design combinations! Absolutely everything is customisable meaning you can pick the colour of each of these features:

Body (£5 extra to add stripes!)
Hub Caps
Cotton Bags
Shoulder Strap
Internal Strap

Indiana and Parker absolutely loved the design process, each taking it in turn to select the perfect colour for their Trunki. They are aged 5 and 3 and found it simple enough to do themselves too. You can see their finished design below:

The Littles were so excited to open their Trunki when it arrived, and were so pleased that it matched the design they created on my computer. It's already been ridden around the house numerous times, and Indie has thoroughly tested out it's 18 litre internal capacity. And as the ride-on is made from the same plastic that adult suitcases are made on, it's super durable too - our original Trunki is 3 years old and still going strong.

As I wrote in my original review, I am still not a huge fan of the way the Trunki opens, and I don't think I would use it on a plane anymore as a proper carry-on. However they are perfect for filling with your children's clothes or favourite toys and books - keeping as much space free in your suitcase as possible. Plus they provide hours of entertainment while your on holiday as a ride-on too!

We had originally ordered the Trunki to take on our recent holiday to Somerset, however as custom made Trunkis take up to 10 days to be made, it didn't arrive in time. However delivery is free and each case is designed and made in the UK, (plus each Trunki comes with a 5 year guarantee), so I wasn't too upset. We are off on plenty of adventures this year that it will come along on! 

The Design Your Own Trunki retails at £44.99 and is available to buy at, alongside many extras and fun Trunki products.

We received this product in exchange for this review. All opinions are honest and my own.
