Always been a big fan of a ride/pull along suitcase for kids so when my 7 year old outgrew hers we thought we’d give BedBox a try. Made by Stokke, the BedBox is a carry-on sized ride on/pull along kids suitcase that turns a plane seat into a bed!
We’ve been overseas twice this year, most recently a 34 hour EPIC MISSION to get to the Seychelles off the coast of Africa and I can honestly say, hand on heart, that this brilliant little suitcase was a LIFE SAVER!!!!!
BedBox is suitable for toddlers and children 2-7 years inflight and from 3 years as a ride-on. Winnie is almost 8 and around 25kgs and had no problems at all sitting and riding on the BedBox. It’s built strong and the shock absorbing swivel wheels make it super easy for her to steer on her own.
Winnie was able to pack all of her own travel essentials into her BedBox. It fit a jumper, her thongs, a Tesalate towel that we used as a blanket, her ipad and headphones, colouring books and pencils plus a few snacks, lip balm and her eczema cream in the top compartment.
She then happily scooted her way through airports, train stations and hotel lobbies not only carrying her own stuff, but carrying herself without me having to hear “My legs are tired, Can you carry me? Can we stop?”
When we were on the plane, the convertible travel bed was so quick and easy to set up, and meant that for the long overnight flights she was able to actually lie completely horizontal and sleep for 7/8 hours at a time. Bloody brilliant! While she was awake she also found it far more comforable to sit with her legs up or crossed and watch a movie or do some colouring.
