Gone are the days of breezing onto an airplane with just your roller board and handbag. Summer travel with kids means a pile of checked bags and several more to drag through the airport. Encourage your brood to share some of the load by giving them their own luggage. With animal-shaped bags and clever kid-sized trollies, you can be sure they’ll want to proudly tote and roll their possessions all the way to your destination.

Roll With It

Best known for their reusable sandwich and snack bags, Itzy Ritzy recently launched a kids rolling suitcase made for kids ages 3 and older. It's perfectly sized to stow under an airplane's seat or pack in the car's trunk. Choose either a pink owl pattern or a blue monkey bag.

From ItzyRitzy.com, $59.99.
