We’re often asked what the best suitcase is for a toddler. In my experience of selling suitcases for children since 2006 there are certain winning criteria to look out for when choosing your case. If you can get these right you’re off to a good start. Here’s what we recommend you look out for followed by our top picks of suitcases for toddlers.
We’re often amazed how difficult it can be to find decent suitcases for older children.

I think the confusion arose over the word guaranteed.
You can still take bags up to 56 x 45 x 25 but on a [...]
We have just moved house – again!
This resulted in yet another flurry of rationalising and junking! Our children are older but we have carried pictures, projects, bits of needlework and all sorts of stuff that seem every time to escape this downsizing.
I cannot believe I am writing this when it feels like the holidays have barely begun but ‘Back to School Fever’ is upon us again!
What are your top tips for easing back into school after a, hopefully relaxing, summer?
It seems to me that whether teenager or toddler getting those sleep patterns back is [...]
One of my most abiding memories from childhood is the annual holiday car journey!
Discussions about the Exeter by pass still have the power to torment. The worst was the trip to North West Scotland squashed into a blue Hillman Imp which I am convinced took over 14 hours!!
