Aerolite MiniMAX

Maximum Comfort For Little Travellers

Packing their own luggage, children learn to be more independent and more organised. And what a pleasure it is to get everything ready for the trip they have been looking for, especially if they have a lovely suitcase to put all the necessary stuff in.

For you, it may be your ID and credit cards, clothing, a camera, but for your kid, it is their beloved toys in the first place. Luckily, this model offers enough room for their favourite fluffy toy (outside straps on the item's front), cars and dolls (multiple zipped pockets), colouring books (mesh pockets), and garments (capacious main compartment).

To add to its benefits, this kids luggage on wheels doubles as a backpack - in addition to a retractable handle, it is equipped with ergonomic straps. The straps can be hidden in a zipped pocket on the item's back when you use the unit as a trolley or carry it with a top or side handle. Alternatively, the telescopic handle can be concealed in a zipped pocket on its top while you use the back pocket to cover the wheels when the unit serves as a backpack.

The only downside is that there is but one colour option available. The good news is that you can select a model with a cuddly soft toy included. In any case, the Aerolite MiniMAX kids cabin suitcase is a wonderful present idea for a young adventurer.
