Now that your little ones are traveling with you, equip them with wheeled luggage that's accordingly adorable.
Now that your kids are accompanying you on trips — or even taking their own! — you’re probably in the market for backpacks with wheels. Rolling backpacks for kids are a great way to transport items, and they won't put as much added strain on their shoulders as a normal bag.

Just remember, while rolled backpacks come in a variety of sizes, they should never be too heavy for your child to pull. A smaller bag will hold less than a larger one, and stay away from a telescopic handle that wobbles when fully extended. In the store, we recommend wheeling the pack around to ensure the wheels are steady and the bag doesn’t topple over.
In terms of cleaning, most bags will feature plastic-y fabric that responds to a damp rubber sponge. You won’t need to throw it in the washing machine or have it dry cleaned. Experts advise air drying your bag to help it retain its shape. Finally, keep in mind that just because a bag looks like a backpack doesn’t mean your child should carry it if it's stuffed to the brim. Many of these wheeled backpacks are larger than normal book bags, so the weight may be too much to handle.
