Packing for a trip and navigating an airport has never been as easy as having both my kids with ride-on suitcases from Samsonite. This amazing brand, known for their superb quality, is making travel fun for kids with their Dream Rider range, and one lucky Mommalikeme reader will win one of their own (well, it’s not for you, it’s for your kid) just in time for the upcoming school holidays and any travel plans you may have – although in saying that, my kids happily zoot around on their Dream Riders at home shrieking as they chase after one another or pack it as an overnight bag for sleepovers to family.
Over Easter we flew down to the coast for the long weekend, and having two kids with a Dream Rider of their own was an absolute ‘dream’. I packed all of their snacks, activities, toys and a blanket in each of their bags to keep them (and me) sane on the flight, and over a weekend when we knew torrential rains would keep us shut up and indoors. So, what went into Soph’s Dream Rider for the trip? We were sent a fantastic board game just before we left (perfect miserable weather solve), Melissa & Dough Colour By Number book with koki’s, Sophie’s Our Generation Alexa Doll, some mini Playdoh tubs and shape cutters, Dettol wipes, a bottle of water, a me4kidz Medibuddy First Aid Kit for the inevitable, blanket and our fav reusable Woolworths Full Circle snack bags filled with healthy chewy treats for ears on the plane and rice cakes. That’s a lot of stuff, and it still closed with ease. A question I’ve been asked a few times – isn’t Oli too big to have a Dream Rider? Nope, and if you ask him, he’ll respond with a 360 drift of his Dream Rider. It’s the perfect size for cabin luggage on a plane, and we were able to hurry through a chaotic airport at peak time by having Oli zip through crowds and by pulling Soph along. Every child we passed ogled the bags with wonder and I could almost feel the eyes of their parents zooming in on me thinking “great, now we need to go buy one of those too!”!
The amazing Dream Rider range has a packing capacity of 25l – so more than enough space for all their toys and activities, and it has front handles for your child to hold onto and steer while they zoot along, as well as a strap that can convert to pull your child along, or attach on both ends and carry over your shoulder should their little legs get too tired, or, if Mommy and Daddy hadn’t quite anticipated an airline strike on the weekend you’re flying.
School holidays are right around the corner, and what better prize to win than this?! Your kids will get years of fun out of this and what’s even better is it’s so easy to open and close your kids can get in on the packing too!
