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.

  • Did you hear the news travel fans? Cheap flights ARE ON THEIR WAY this April! COVID has been as much fun for travellers as watching footy has been for crows fans this past year, but with life seemingly on the brink of returning to some normality (I mean toilet paper is now on the shelves again and we don't have to buy the crappy pasta even the hoarders didn't want) the Federal Government are going to help get us back in the air again! So how exactly are they doing this? They are pumping $1.2 Billion (that's Billion with a B.....or what Jeff Bezos has as loose change in his car) to subsidize about 800, 000 airline tickets for flights throughout Australia. With the exception of Adelaide to KI, all of the routes that will be cheap are interstate ones (so far any way), so bring on a trip to the Goldy for theme parks and more with the kids, or maybe stay local and jump on the KI flights. At this stage Adelaide routes that have been announced are as follows; Adelaide - Gold CoastAdelaide - Kingscote (Kangaroo Island)Adelaide - Maroochydore (QLD)Adelaide - Alice Springs The flights will be…

  • EcoCaddy are a fleet of pedal-assisted electric trikes you've more than likely seen zipping around the streets and you might have even jumped on for a free ride through the city. But did you know they also run excellent 90 minute city tours and that from now until the end of Adelaide Fringe 2022 you can get 15% off when you use the code "kids15" We've been on a few tours now and they're all brilliant! The 90 minute tours will take you through Adelaide's beautiful parks, playgrounds, gardens, street art and historic points around and their very knowledgeable guides have some great stories and fun facts to share about our brilliant city. Did you know Alice in Wonderland can be found in Rymill Park?Did you know there is a golden bee at the top of beehive corner?Do you know where the purple pipes in the Parklands go? I've EcoCaddy-ed with my kids and also with a group of friends and on all occasions the review is the same..... "THAT WAS GREAT!" It really is a lot of fun to zip around the city on one of these. They're comfortable, safe and environmentally friendly! Take a ride with the kids…

  • Kangaroo Island is synonymous with Australian animals. I mean, it literally has KANGAROO in the name! But even if you've grown up in Australia & are used to seeing our animals, there is still something super exciting about spotting a kangaroo or koala or seeing some cool birds that you don't get to see everyday. You can't go to Kangaroo Island without having at least one or two animals encounters & we all know that kids get beyond excited when it comes to animal fun. Here are some of the spots around the Island to have the best fur, scales & feather experiences. Kangaroo Island Wildlife ParkAlmost smack bang in the middle of the Island, you'll find Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park . There are over 600 animals with everything from dingoes, wallabies, penguins, pelicans, reptiles, koalas & of course, kangaroos. You can wander the park, watch one of the Keeper Animal Presentations or even book a cuddle with a koala! Since the KI Bushfires in January 2020, the Park is also home to the Kangaroo Island Koala and Wildlife Rescue Centre, so the kids will also have a chance to learn about animal rescue.
