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.
