One thing we have always done is try to travel at least a couple times a year whether it is to visit family or just to relax away from home. Because of our frequent family travel, I have noticed that it is extremely difficult to find decent luggage for the kids. Each piece we've found just seems cheaply made or too small to make it worth even dragging around. So once I discovered D and N Kids, I wanted to take my time picking out the perfect peice and reviewing it.
Thankfully, each summer we send Alana back to Georgia to spend a decent part of her break with her grandparents and cousins. This gave us the perfect opportunity to not only pick out a new luggage set but to put it to the test. Now, even though most of the D and N Kids bags and luggage are geared towards younger children, Alana has recently fallen in love with giraffe patterns. Yes I said giraffe patterns and giraffe everything. Don't ask me...she is a teenager and you know how they are. Either way as we were browsing through the bags for a peice for Dane we actually stumbled across the Peace, Love, and Giraffe rolling suitcase.
Not only is this a cute as anything pattern but because it is made of a canvas material, it seems to be a bit sturdier than your average luggage. Plus what we like the most is that this bag is small enough to be a carry-on which makes for much easier travel when Alana flies alone. We were still able to fit quite a bit for her trip and nothing on the bag was damaged from over packing or from any of the average travel wear and tear.
I might add that now that she is back home both boys love using the suitcase to carry around their toys from our house to grandmas. They love pretending to be like their sister going on vacation everyday. Still the bag looks almost brand new and that says a lot in my household the way they have been using it!
Available to purchase: Peace, Love, and Giraffe
Recommendation: I have to say I am obviously not the type of person to go out and spend $70+ on a childrens peice of luggage let alone on a single peice for myself BUT this has taken a beating in the month we have had it and it is holding up quite well. This has to say a lot and maybe it is worth the extra cost.
