The right kid’s suitcase is a must-have for family vacations. Wondering what size suitcase is best for the little ones to pull themselves? We answer these questions and more here. Here you can find out at a glance what you should look out for when buying children’s suitcases.
- Kids suitcases are usually available in the following sizes:
- 8 to 40 liters capacity
- If you are planning a day trip, a small children’s suitcase is suitable.
- For a vacation of several days or even weeks, the suitcase should offer much more space
- Tip: You are unsure which size you need? Plan with your child in advance what things absolutely have to go on vacation. So you can better estimate how big the suitcase should be
- A children’s suitcase should have a low weight and be robust. Here you will find a list of materials that are often used in the manufacture of children’s suitcases
- Polyester: water repellent, very light and sturdy
- Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene copolymer (ABS): plastic, stable, robust
- Aluminum: higher dead weight, very robust
- Polypropylene (PP): plastic, robust yet lightweight. Attention: material becomes brittle at temperatures below 0°
- Nylon & Polyamide: robust, light own weight, denier strength indicates how tear-resistant the material is (the higher, the better)
- Polycarbonate: plastic, somewhat more expensive, very robust and light dead weight
- High Density Polyethylene (HDPE): Plastic, very cold- and heat resistant
- Some suitcases even offer a seat function (very popular with children)
- Low weight (so your child can pull the suitcase by himself)
- Name plate on the suitcase
- Robust material
- Plenty of storage space
- Hard-shell vs. soft-shell suitcases: Soft-shell suitcases are particularly popular because they have a low dead weight. Hard shell suitcases tend to be a bit sturdier.
