  • When: Age 2 and up
  • Why: Durable, practical, and cute
  • Where: Amazon

Our older two kids loved their Popatu suitcases so much that my youngest wanted his own suitcase as soon as he could walk. We indulged him last year before he even turned two, since it behooved us as well when traveling.

We upgraded from our beloved Popatu rolling backpacks to this new kind from Yodo. It comes in a slightly larger size, so they can pack more stuff in. That makes it a bonus for them, and a bit of a downside for me as they throw more stuff in that I have to locate before we return home later. But this one has exterior pockets!

My eldest son immediately confiscated it from his younger brother, who has never actually gotten to pack or carry it anywhere. He traded him his older blue airplane suitcase, which suits them both very well. I didn’t plan it that way, but my older son carries the larger suitcase, while my youngest can still easily pack and pick up the smaller Popatu version (which happens to be his favorite color as well).

I can fit a sippy cup into either mesh side pocket on the Yodo suitcase without an issue, and it hasn’t fallen out yet. My son also loves to shove small items in there, so he can not only see them, but retrieve them with ease instead of losing them in the large interior storage space. The front pockets holds his headphones and electronic entertainment. I can even stuff some snacks in there if I don’t mind the crumbs.

My oldest son now travels with other relatives as well, so the extra pockets and storage come in handy when I’m not along for the ride to carry all his actual travel essentials for him. It has enough room to pack clothes and pajamas for a weekend, though we’ve never used it for practical stuff. My kids pack their own bags, and would happily sleep in their clothes repeatedly as long as they don’t leave home without their beloved stuffed animals and other sleeping accoutrements.

It comes in pink owl and brown monkey versions as well as a larger size. We have the medium shark version. The backpack straps tuck away nicely when not in use, and it also comes with a built in attached cover for the wheels when not using those.

Overall, I love this suitcase and the design. We’ve only had it a year, so I can’t speak as well to the durability but so far we have had zero issues. I still like the smaller Popatu suitcases to start, but I if you only want to invest in one, I’d probably choose this more practical one.
