With Thanksgiving fast approaching, it's time to start thinking about the dreaded holiday travel. Crowded airports, long security lines and winter weather delays all conspire to make the best laid plans go awry. It's hard enough for experienced savvy fliers like me, but even harder for families with young kids in tow. I really do feel for you, despite the occasional impatient sigh that might escape my lips as you hold up the TSA line in front of me. I just remind myself that as trying it is for me, it's worse for you. Well, here's one way to make it easier. Trunki is lightweight, wheeled luggage for little people that helps keep them entertained, comfortable and mobile in transit, because they can sit on it, ride on it — self-propelled with their feet, or get pulled on a tether. Affordable ($40-48) and colorful, Trunki comes in a basic and upgraded "Towgo"
model, which features locking catches, teddy bear seatbelts (that's internal straps for grown ups), and a convenient carry handle. Buy it in the US with free shipping from Amazon.com.
