What is trunki?
Trunki is a unique low-cost children's suitcase with wheels and an automatic retracting extension-lead for parents to pull whilst their child sits on the suitcase. Children can also push themselves along with their legs and drive the suitcase holding onto special "suitcase driving handles" at the top of the suitcase. Trunki is really strong and has been "stress-tested" by tens-of-thousands of children all over the world. Watch this demo of a Blue Trunki!.
How Trunki Works
Trunki is really easy to use.
Step 1: Open

Tipu the Tiger Trunki SuitcaseNew!!!
