Skootcase – taking children’s luggage for a ride



Travelling with kids just got a lot more fun. 

Is it a suitcase or is it a scooter? Well, it’s kind of both. The Skootcase is a clever little contraption which could very nearly save any parent’s sanity in a bustling airport. Your child can pack their favourite bits and bobs in their very own case, then hop on board, while you take the tow strap and drive them through the airport.


The Skootcase has a fully functioning steering column (this can be a good or bad thing, I think!). The design is based on the rather stylish Vespa scooters you see zooming through the streets of Italian cities. It has rubber wheels, and is small enough to pass as carry-on luggage. It comes in blue or pink, and is available from the manufacture, Diggin Active for US$69.99, but you will most likely need a reshipper.
