Traveling with children is a fun and exciting experience. It can also be a stressful time if you don't plan ahead. While packing up your kid's things into your own suitcase is tempting, buying them their own luggage makes them feel important. Being responsible for their own luggage and belongings teaches children how important organization is when traveling.
Consider the age of your children when shopping for luggage. Young children need nothing more than a small backpack or rolling suitcase. Older children can manage with a backpack and larger duffel or suitcase.
Tips & Warnings
- Vinyl luggage is cheap but rips easily. Only choose vinyl if your child is gentle on things and doesn't need a tough piece of luggage.
