Most parents can attest to the fact that traveling with children in tow is not exactly a fun experience. You can make it easier, though, with a JetKidsBedBox. These crafty pieces of luggage are both economical and fun for kids.
Designed for kids up to age 7, the portable BedBox is a suitcase on wheels that comes with a variety of uses for the little ones to help keep them entertained. For starters, they’re ride on, meaning your kids will have a blast sliding through the airport with ease, as long as you’re willing to help guide them.
Parents’ favorite part happens after you board the plane. The luggage converts into a bed or leg rest to help your kid relax. It’s large enough to serve as a small sleeping area for toddlers while the leg rest comes in handy for bigger kids looking to get a tad more comfortable on the plane. An easily washable mattress is included and the BedBox fits most standard economy seats.
Inside, you’re able to fit up to 20 liters of clothes and other useful items for keeping the kids busy on a long flight. It’s durable, safe and perfect for a family of little travelers. It’s designed primarily to be used during the cruising portions of the flight, more than enough time to give everyone some needed rest.
