No doubt many of you will recognise the face on this latest limited edition Trunki – The Gruffalo. The original book is a humorous tale told in rhyme of a mouse making his way through the â€˜deep dark woodâ€™ looking for a nut and dealing with the intimidating and much bigger animals en route by warning them of a â€˜fictionalâ€™ gruffalo with â€œterrible tusks and terrible claws with terrible teeth in his terrible jawsâ€. Launched to coincide with the animated version of which will be shown on the BBC this Christmas, it looks like the Trunki was just made to work with The Gruffaloâ€™s famous features.
If youâ€™re not familiar with Trunkiâ€™s, theyâ€™re award winning hand luggage come ride-onâ€™s for 3-6 year olds, although admittedly the bambino (28 months) was gifted with one and used it on our recent trip to Center Parcs. Originally pitched (and failed) on the Dragons Den (they must grimace each time they pass one), itâ€™s got a spacious 18 litre capacity and theyâ€™re brilliant for making travelling fun. Kids love pulling them along, riding on them, and even hugging them.
