With kids, sometimes it’s the little things that make life a bit easier. And when you’re trying to usher a gaggle of little ones through security checkpoints and onto buses and into hotel rooms, you’re going to need all the little things you can get.
Letting your mini pick out his own luggage is one way to get kids excited for a vacation and help them feel invested in the (often grueling) process of traveling.
Here are our favorite luggage options for kids, broken up by different ages:

You will love the easy-clean material, lightweight, rolling wheels, one-year warranty and durability. Even though these look cuddly, they’re made from a hard case.

Pink. Peace sign. Blinged out. That’s all your third-grader will care about. This luggage and backpack set is on sale right now at Epic Sports, down from $99 to $58.59. In addition to being colorful (and thereby easy to spot on the luggage corral), this suitcase has plenty of practical storage pockets and nooks to help teach your kiddo how to pack like a pro.
This TrendyKid “danger” suitcase is great for a pre-teen or teen, $69.99 at eBags.com.
This suitcase is warrantied, well made, durable, practical, easy to carry and most importantly, it’s so cool with its danger stickers. It might not be a top hit with airport security, but hey, that’s another story. It’ll get your pre-teen in the car.
This Vera Bradley bag is colorful, trendy and high quality. Ideal for a short trip — unless you have a teenager who needs to pack 92 pairs of shoes — because this bag is only medium-sized. Even though it’s a brand name, this bag runs only $29 at eBags.com. Don’t worry; we won’t tell your daughter.
