Beatrix Alexander Wheelie Bag
Blast off! Your little tyke can travel in style with this super sweet and sturdy suitcase from Beatrix New York. Enter to win it, too!
"Is that my bag? Oh, no wait – that's not it."
"Maybe that's your bag! Um, nope, it just looks like your bag."
At airports across the country, people are having this exact conversation as they try to locate their suitcase on that conveyer belt. Add some kids to the waiting game, and it's anything but a party.
So the next time you travel with children in tow, give them the suitcase you can't miss – the Beatrix Alexander Wheelie Bag.
The super-cute suitcase – which sells for $94 and can be purchased online or locally at Elephant Ears in Ann Arbor, Saks Fifth Avenue in Troy or The Little Seedling in Ann Arbor – is made of a metal frame, covered in heavy-duty nylon and embroidered with an adorable blasting-off robot (the embroidered character is part of the company's signature design).
Beatrix New York makes everything from backpacks and lunch boxes to water bottles, and the company's items are all PVC-free, lead-free and phthalate-free.
So, when you plan your next trip with your jet-setting kid, spend less time at the conveyer belt – and get a suitcase you can spot in a flash!
