“The world's cutest suitcase.”
One of the woes of the modern frequent traveler is the inability to keep a pet and bring it on the road. But for travelers who wish they had an animal companion by their side in transit, there’s now a glowing suitcase with ears.
Fravel, which bills itself as “the world’s cutest suitcase,” is now available for pre-order on Kickstarter.
The suitcase comes in a variety of pastel colors and has detachable ears that move and react to what’s happening around it. When the suitcase is petted or when it rolls along behind its owner, the ears will start to jiggle.
The wheels are shaped like paws, it’s got “the world’s first transparent handle” and there’s a glowing heart on the front of the suitcase that lights up when owners interact with it.
However, unlike a pet, the kawaii suitcase is helpful on the road. It's waterproof and comes equipped with USB charger and universal power ports for devices. According to the makers, Fravel will fit most airline carry-on specifications. It measures 22" x 14" x 10" (not including ears), and weighs eight pounds when empty.

Fravel suitcases are available for pre-order starting at $269 and going up to $599, depending on color. The suitcases are expected to ship in November.
