The featured item was provided compliments of ZUCA in hopes that I would share my honest opinion. All thoughts are mine alone. Giveaway is sponsored by ZUCA, and hosted by Holyjeans and My Favorite Things, Barbara’s Beat, and Amy’s Daily Finds.
We are in the last days before our vacation and I don’t know who’s more excited, me or the kids! I do know for a fact that my little girl is thrilled now to have her very own kids’ rolling travel case, and not just any……she has the ZUCA Mini.
My boys are older so they have bigger duffel bags, but Kynlea isn’t strong enough to carry a duffel or suitcase, so having a special travel case like this one is perfect for her with it’s smooth rolling wheels and light-weight! Before we go on vacation, she’s actually going to have a stay over at her Honey’s house (my Mom). We thought this would be a perfect opportunity to try out her new rolling suitcase!
First off, let me tell you how much storage this has. TONS! There is of course the large main compartment that was able to hold:
- 2 Extra changes of clothes
- Pair of Pajamas
- 2 Pair of shoes (slippers and tennies)
- Her favorite blanket (can NOT forget that)
- 2 of her current favorite stuffed toys
- Matching ZUCA Snack Pack (which we put her toiletries in)
In addition to the large compartment, there was also 2 additional areas inside the “door” of the case, one larger zippered, and a smaller velcro pocket. On each of the outter sides of this rolling case are 3 pockets. One very small zippered (for change), one larger zippered, and then an open pocket! That’s a total of 6 extra spaces to store items in.
If you need snacks on the go, they’ve included a detached matching insulated snack pack. This would be perfect to keep a cold snack and the lining is both water proof and super easy to clean! The material this case is made with feels top quality, I can definitely tell that it will be able to withstand my nearly 4 year old! The handle on this is very easy to use and with the push of the button on the handle can pull out to make pulling or pushing easy for her. The wheels remind me of higher end roller blade wheels in the way they roll very smooth, and probably my daughter’s favorite feature is the lights that go off when it’s rolling!
We won’t be flying anywhere this year, but may be over Spring break and it’s nice to know that this not only is perfect size for a carry-on, and it is also made to give your little one a spot to sit if they’re is ever a shortage in seating area. The insert can be easily removed to wash as well which I LOVE!!! Here is a breakdown of my favorite features:
- Weight (metal frame and bag): 7lbs
- Dimensions: 15.5” height, 10” width, 11” depth
- Telescoping Handle reaches 31.5”
- Top Gear Platform to either sit on if need be, or stack more equipment
- Top platform can hold up to 200 lbs
- Insert: removable, hand washable, made from premium water resistant 600D polyester
- Magneto Dynamic 4” polyurethane wheels absorb shock and make for a seriously silent ride
