My kids, aged 7 and 9, are now of the age where they want to pack their own suitcases. They are usually pretty responsible with them too – and by packing them carry-on bags, we can limit the amount of bags that we check when flying. The best kids’ suitcases need to be manageable, but big enough to actually fit their stuff. I also like my kids’ suitcases to be easy to pull and durable. On a recent sleepover, my daughter packed our new ZÜCA Mini – it fit her sleeping bag, clothes for the night, and toiletries!

I’ve raved about the ZÜCA Pro before, and the ZÜCA Mini is no exception. It’s designed for kids aged 4 and up, and has a telescoping handle that extends to up to 16 inches above the bag – making pulling the bag convenient for both kids and adults (when the kids get tired). The polyurethane wheels make rolling easy for kids, and they flash when being pulled – both for fun and safety. The ZÜCA Mini meets FAA rules for carry-on bags – measuring 15.5″ high, 10″ wide, and 11″ deep.
ZUCA Bag Review
Just like the ZÜCA Pro, the ZÜCA Mini includes the patented built-in seat on the top, which comes in handy when waiting at the gate or for a bus or taxi. The bag weighs 7 pounds, but is very sturdy. The interior is very spacious and holds loads of stuff. My daughter really loves using it. The insert is removable and washable too – great for keeping it nice and clean between family vacations.
The ZÜCA Mini kids’ suitcase comes in 6 different insert designs including the owl (pictured), ballerina (that we received), smile pink, blast-off, pirate, and smile blue as well as blue, black, and pink frames.
