Does anyone know where to buy pull-along luggage for children?

wilkinsons had some the last time i was in.

dinosaur Mon 27-Jun-05 15:36:44

I don't know Wilkinsons, jessicasmummy?

jessicasmummy Mon 27-Jun-05 15:37:39

hmmm... ok, woolworths?

I have been told by my cousin who flies an awful lot with her children, that they are more trouble than they are worth. Just a thought

dinosaur Mon 27-Jun-05 15:39:20

I wonder why that is, LGJ?

I am flying to Ireland on my own with them for three weeks in the summer and I just can't get enough clothes for all four of us in one bag, so I thought it would be good if DS1 and DS2 could carry their own clothes.

Woolies have some girls one at the mo. I was trying to get one for ds1 recently for his birthday (he likes to play "going on holidays") and had to get it on Amazon - couldn't find any non-girly ones anywhere.

dinosaur Mon 27-Jun-05 16:14:23

Thanks pabla. I'll try amazon.

I think it had something to do with the children having no sense of ownership with regard to them after about 30 minutes and leaving them down at every hands turn.

Got ds's from the disney store

Got ds and dd from disney store as well.
Seen them in Woolies.

I can just imagine DS with one - he'd be a complete menace, tripping people up, getting bored and 'too tired' to pull it after 10 mins, and would doubtless bring the place to a standstill by abandoning it and creating a security scare.

Send some stuff in advance by a cheap freight company? Use one massive monster wheelie case? (I came through Gatwick on Saturday, some these days are the size of a 4 berth caravan), get DP to go with you as far as check in, then relatives meet you at the other end?

But maybe your DS's will be angels and thier own luggage will be just the thing!

dinosaur Mon 27-Jun-05 16:36:59

Hmmmmmm...maybe you're right.

Dd's also came from the disney store and it's quite roomy, but they're also quite pricey from there - we got ours half price in the sale so not so bad. She does carry some of her clothes in there though but not all of them. More useful I'd say for the bits and pieces she likes to bring along like books and tapes, colouring, a favourite bedtime toy etc.

Could you get them decent backpacks, Dino? When are you off? I think I have a smallish Karrimor one that a child could carry, and which would hold a reasonable amount.

motherinferior Mon 27-Jun-05 16:41:18

These are ideal for children and ladies

SoupDragon Mon 27-Jun-05 16:49:26

Beware of backpacks as they over balance your child when they're on escalators. Found this out on Friday when DS1 (6) overbalanced and fell down one at Gatwick.

MrsGordonRamsay Mon 27-Jun-05 16:50:27

Where are you flying from ?? and into Dinosaur and now I am just being nosey

dinosaur Mon 27-Jun-05 16:51:02

Oh, we're only going to Ireland - Stansted to Derry City. So there's hardly any walking for them to do at either end.

motherinferior Mon 27-Jun-05 16:51:05

Oooh, soupy, good to know that; I was already thinking of loading down the Inferiorettes.

MrsGordonRamsay Mon 27-Jun-05 16:53:12

Phew.... I thought you were my cousin as she is flying into Dublin from the Far East for three weeks in July.

Just think.... I may have had to admit to a MN habit

gingerbear Mon 27-Jun-05 16:56:04

soupy, hope is was OK.
How about one at the front to counterbalance one at the back? - two each and then you could just swan into the airport with two little porters. A la swanky celeb.

gingerbear Mon 27-Jun-05 16:57:21

three porters - read post first ginge.

flamesparrow Mon 27-Jun-05 16:57:50

Toys r us do ones that are backpacks and pull along....

dinosaur Mon 27-Jun-05 17:01:36

Ginge sadly DS3 is only 11 months. I suppose he could sit in the buggy with his pack strapped to his chest.
