Having recently done the big round the world trip I was pleased as punch to see hundreds of kids actually riding and loving their Trunkis. No matter where we were, Sydney, Heathrow, Orly, Barcelona, or K.L, there were Trunkis. “But what is a Trunki?”, I hear you say. “What are you rabbiting on about?”
This is a Trunki…
Trunki is the world’s first ride-on suitcase that puts the joy back into family travel. Trunki allows kids to pack, carry and ride their suitcases in a practical, fun and safe manner.
Trunkis are hand luggage approved and indeed carry-on only, with a generous 18lt capacity. Trunki is strong and durable weighing in at only 1.7kg. Soft rubber rims prevent little fingers from being caught and a wide, stable wheel base ensures safe riding around airport terminals. When tiredness sets in, a shoulder strap allows adults to carry or pull Trunki with kids in tow.
All Trunkis feature the following:
A fabric pouch for little things.
A convenient carry handle.
A multifunctional carry-tow strap.
Handles for riding.
Are brightly coloured and easy to spot in an airport.
Trunkis come in a variety of colours and characters.
In the lead up to holiday time, if you are planning a trip that involves plane travel, and your child is between 3-6 years, and they are going to want to take more than a backpack full of stuff on board, think about getting a Trunki.
Newly renovated in 2010, the Stockholm House is more stylish than ever, with brand new furniture, funky interior details and a whole new colour scheme.
Designed by renowned Swedish interior architects Ann Morsing and Beban Nord of Box Design Stockholm, the Stockholm House includes a pull-out drawer with mosaic patio, a water-fillable pool, pull down doors in front of all rooms, sliding bedroom doors, two sun-decks and two staircases!
This Stockholm Dolls House is made in a robust plastic that does not contain environmentally detrimental softeners or other undesirable substances. This plastic has been chosen in order for the lighting system to be safely incorporated into the product. The lighting in every room is easy to install, by connecting a Lundby transformer to the house.
This Lundby dolls house is of heirloom quality and will be something your child will remember for years to come. After all, Lundby have been manufacturing dolls houses since 1945!
There are a variety of accessories available for the Stockholm house, including a living room, bedroom, bathroom, table and chairs, sun-lounges and an outdoor umbrella and a range of little people to live in the house of their dreams.
