About this deal

In the durability test, the case received a dent and some scratches, making us suspect the white version is likely to show a bit of wear over time, so we gave it a 4 out of 5 in durability. The price of this case is also pretty steep compared to those that are specifically aimed at kids. It’s an “investment piece,” as our tester put it, but only a 3 for value.

Next, we tested how well the luggage rolled on multiple surfaces, including an even hard floor, carpet, and grass (astroturf in the lab), turning around a set of cones. We examined maneuverability based on characteristics like handles, weight, and ability to turn. Finally, we tested each bag’s durability by dropping them from a ladder and then hitting them with a baseball bat. We assigned a numerical score based on all of these attributes and used these scores to rank our list. While neither the style nor the construction may be made to endure (a dent in testing gave it a 3.8 for durability), the sale price makes it a good value anyway. This suitcase maneuvers “super easy on hard floor and very easy on shag carpet,” if a little harder on grass, our tester noted, giving it a 4.9 rating for that attribute. The telescoping handle can be used at two different heights, which is always good for a suitcase a grown-up might need to pull when their kid gets tired (or, as in one tester’s case, when they plan on “borrowing” this suitcase). It has a side handle that makes for convenient lifting into overhead storage bins. A note on the styles available: Some styles, like the Cloudburst Neon tested in the lab, get discontinued from season to season, while some standard colors remain.Both suitcases moved quite well on the ground, but when it came time to lift them into an overhead compartment, they felt heavier than some of the other luggage we tested, so we gave it a 4 for maneuverability. If you have a Disney fan in the house—or even better, a pair of sibling fans—this is an excellent deal. to 5 stars: These are the best kids’ luggage products we tested. We recommend them without reservation. This is like the Transformers of rolling suitcases: It’s a ride-on rolling bag that transforms into an in-flight bed or leg rest. While our tester appreciated this bag for its “maneuverable, high-quality wheels” and “sturdy” construction, she also found it awkward for some usages. In addition to testing, we spoke to Whitney Casares, MD, MPH, FAAP, founder and CEO of the Modern Mamas Club app to discuss what qualities to look for in kids' luggage. Our tester noted these cases stand up well, with “not a single mark on the luggage” after endurance and impact tests. While she notes the wheels do protrude in this model, they are nevertheless “sturdy and remained intact despite direct hits with a bat,” garnering it 5 on the durability attribute. Various print options appeal to a range of tastes—though they probably aren’t sophisticated enough to share the set with a grown-up travel companion or teenager. For this reason, this set only earns a 3.5 for value.

This is adorable but only suitable for really young kids,” our tester noted. “The second they grow out of wanting all cute things, they aren't going to tote this around.” Our tester noted that the handle extends tall enough for an adult and has a button that allows it to be used at three different heights. In the lab, we found the 360-degree wheels made it “very easy to maneuver,” even on grass. On the flip side, our tester said, “I wish it had a handle on the side for lifting into the overhead bin because it is heavy.” While the price point is affordable and the designs are whimsical, the “materials are clearly subpar and inexpensive,” our tester noted, giving it a 3.9 for durability. Further, it has no spinner wheels, which may make it tip during fast walks around town or the airport. to 4.7 stars: These kids’ luggage pieces are excellent—they might have minor flaws, but we still recommend them.It has two sets of spinner wheels that are incredibly effective and smooth,” reported our tester. “You can barely tell when it's on the grass.” Its handle offers two height positions with one button to adjust, and there is also a top carry handle that expands out to fit hands of all sizes. Our tester noted it fits easily in an overhead compartment, too. Whether they’ll be stamping their passports after a long-haul flight or just heading out on a weekend road trip, traveling kids love having their own suitcases for cargo functionality as well as for developing their sense of responsibility. To find the very best luggage for your kids, we tried out a variety of rolling suitcases and bags in the Verywell Testing Lab, with all the needs of parents, caregivers, and kids in mind. One of the standout features of Take OFF Luggage is our removable 360° wheels. With just the push of a button, you can easily remove the spinner wheels from your suitcase, turning it into a FREE personal item that can be taken onboard any flight. This feature not only saves you money on baggage fees, but also makes it easier to navigate crowded airports and tight spaces.

State Bags is known for its classy takes on trendy designs for kids and adults, so the prints change from season to season. Still, we recommend buying one that won’t go out of style too soon, just based on the higher price point.

At the age of about 3 to 4 years old, kids can be expected to carry a few of their own things when they travel,” explains Whitney Casares, MD, MPH, FAAP, founder and CEO of the Modern Mamas Club app. “But the most important thing is starting them out with a little bit of responsibility versus having them carry a substantial amount of luggage as they travel.” This two-piece luggage set includes both an 18-inch underseat and a 21-inch carry-on suitcase, and it rings in at a value price given the inclusion of two coordinating hardshell pieces (available in varying Disney or Star Wars-themed designs), depending on where you buy them and when). Our tester noted the storage capacity is “quite sizable and deep,” with two internal compartments in each suitcase, one with a zipper and the other with an elastic strap. The smaller case fit 10 outfits and one pair of shoes, while the larger carry-on fit 19 outfits, one pair of shoes, a doll, two stuffed animals, and three books.
