Trunki Gruffalo

The Trunki Ride-On Suitcase was been one of the biggest successes of the BBC’s ‘Dragon’s Den’.

The suitcase, designed especially for children, has a double purpose; not only can your children pack their own toys and belongings for a holiday in their own easy-to-use case (which is hand luggage approved), but if they are bored waiting in an airport lounge the suitcase becomes a fun ride on toy that they can whizz around on.

From the original Trunkis in pink and blue there have been various special editions, including a cow, a ladybird and special 2012 Olympic Trunkis. (you can read our review of the green Trunki Tow-along here))

The Gruffalo Trunki has terrible tusks and terrible claws with terrible teeth in his terrible jaws…

If you somehow haven't heard of The Gruffalo, is began as a delightful book by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. In rhyme it tells the story of a little mouse who goes into the deep dark woods in search of a nut; he meets all sorts of dangers which he deals with ingenuity and cunning.

The story has spawned a follow-up book The Gruffalo's Child and it has been turned into a fantastic stage show, an audio book, soft toys and even sticker books.
