Trunki Travel Toybox Review


Trunki make a range of innovative travel products which are designed to make family travel easier whether that’s a weekend at Granny’s or a round the world trip!

They’ve got everything you need to make your journey a doddle including the brand new BoostApak – a backpack which doubles as a booster seat as seen on BBC’s The Apprentice. They’ve also got the well loved Gruffalo Trunki, ride-on suitcase, a range of fun Trunki accessories and Yondi the ultimate kids travel chum and neck pillow.

As well as all this they’ve got heaps of downloadable games to keep little ones busy on the move and some expert advice ranging from how to avoid motion sickness to surviving long haul flights.

Trunki launched way back in 2006 following a dramatic appearance on BBC’s Dragons’ Den, but the idea for Trunki came about over a decade ago. Visit their About Us page to watch the Trunki story and find out more about the company.

Use the carry handle to carry your toybox
We received a Trunki Travel Toybox to try out and review a couple of weeks ago from the lovely people at Trunki. I asked for a blue one as I thought it would be perfect for Bugs’s toys when we are out and about visiting friends and family! That was probably a bad choice as they are aimed at 3-6 years and Boo really loves it so she has claimed ownership of it LOL Well she is 4 so it fits her age range better! Although she does understand that it will be used for Bugs’s toys ;O)
Sit on and off you go! No adults PLEASE!!!
So first impressions I was really pleased, it looks really cool, is very very light and is plenty big enjoy to take enough of Bugs’s toys to stop him getting bored when we go out. I was very concerned at first by the fact that it is a “ride-on” as it is so light and Boo being rather huge for her age I thought would definitely break it! But I can confirm that it can carry around Boo’s 3st 10lb for a LONG time!

The travel toy box is exactly what it says on the box. Would I use them to store toys at home? No. They don’t store enough for that and at £20 each I would need at least 10 of them to hold about a quarter of the toys in the house so a very expensive home storage solution! Having said that I think every 3 year old would love one! A ride-on, rocking, carrying, push around toy-box! What’s not to love! If you do own more then one you can clip them together to make a Trunki train which I think is brilliant! Imagine the fun they would have with friends riding around on their very own train!!!

So the Trunki gets a big thumbs up from us as a “Travel Toybox” which is exactly what it is! Only your little ones will have hours more fun with it than anything else that they could carry their toys in 😉

    Great review lovely. We have toybags for Grayson for out and about, but I like the idea of this, although he also wouldn't be able to ride it.
    I have always loved the cuteness of trunki x
