Travel Buddies Help Kids Learn to Pack

travel buddies luggageTrendyKid’s Travel Buddies Luggage Sets Helps Kids Learn to Pack

Now available at The Container Store and ready for summer road trips

SILVER SPRING, MD – JUNE 2012 – Travel Buddies Luggage Sets are helping kids get road-ready for summer travel. The pandas, penguins and ladybugs, now available at The Container Store, are bringing functional sophistication and affordability to children’s luggage. Designed by children for children, the sturdy two-piece sets include a 17″ wheelie case and a matching backpack.

Travel Buddies help kids P.A.C.K. That’s the acronym coined by TrendyKid co-founder Rachel Stephens, a children’s packing and travel expert who believes that having fun and functional luggage encourages kids to be responsible for their own packing.

“It’s important for kids to be responsible for packing their essentials; it makes the prep for the trip fun,” she said. “I get my kids to write their own list of things we need to buy or pack for our trips.”

Stephens and her husband Mark travel frequently, both in the United States and internationally, with their two young children. The P.A.C.K. strategy keeps her brood organized, self-sufficient and happy on the road.

P – Plan your games and activities for the journey.

A – Anything you won’t miss you don’t need.

C – Can fit in your own bag.

K – Keep your must-haves in your backpack!

“Our family packing rule is very simple,” said Stephens, “but also very effective.”

Retailing for $89.99, Travel Buddies feature a lightweight ABS hard shell design and organizational amenities for compact packing. The 17″ wheelie has a polyester lining with dividing pocket and zip compartment, internal garment straps and easy-roll wheels that are color coordinated with the case exterior. The 13″ backpack has a carry handle, adjustable back straps and an internal pocket to hold snacks, small toys, electronic games, books and more.

The Travel Buddies nesting luggage duo is not the only child-friendly luggage available from this children’s travel accessory and apparel company. Stephens’ packing and travel philosophy helped lead to the development of TravelKool ($69.99), a travel gear collection for ‘tweens that launched at the recent Travel Goods Show in Las Vegas.

TravelKool includes a polycarbonate wheelie case in a design called Chat, which features all the icons that this social media-savvy set is so familiar with, and a media bag to hold electronics – de rigueur for these teched-up travelers.

Visit TrendyKid to see the Travel Buddies and TravelKool collections. Coming soon: 3D designs for Travel Buddies and a “Danger Zone” theme for Travel Kool. Purchase Travel Buddies at The Container Store.
