Will you be travelling with a baby or toddler this summer? Is the thought overwhelming? I know when I first went on a plane with my children I was filled with dread. With my first child the thought of leaving the house required checklists and planning, never mind leaving the country! I wanted to make it look like I had everything under control even if inside my heart racing with panic. Our first trip as a family was to Bulgaria when Lucas was just over a year old. We have traveled a few times and went to the USA when Tyler was only 4 months old. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.
A few of my concerns were keeping the kids entertained in the airport. Another was having them comfortable to allow them to be able to sleep. What would have made it easier was a JetKids BedBox. These would have been a Godsend. A JetKids BedBox really is the ultimate travel companion for kids aged 0 to 7 years. It works as a your child’s hand luggage allowing for the essentials like a drink, snack and some colouring books. Looks good doesn’t it?
Now, I know a lot with say, but it just looks like a Trunki or one of the other ride on suitcases that you see on the market these days. Think again! They are just the suitcases! They allow for some items to be stored in them, a couple of toys, a snack and yes they can be ridden on, you can can pull your child about on them, great. But that’s it. The JetKids BedBox is so much more, here’s what it can do;
- Ride-on suitcase & inflight bed – First Class travel for Kids
- Swivel wheels in front allows excellent maneuvering
- Universal for almost every airplane seats and types
- Machine washable mattress (Can also be used as changing mat)
- Not to be used during take-off, landing or turbulence
Why do you need one? Well they take the hassle out of the issues I felt I had when I was travelling with little ones, they can sleep, have their own items so they feel like it’s their own case and they can travel on them, it’s fun, it’s useful and it works.
What is great about the JetKids BedBox:-
It’s a seat while waiting – Kids can use them as seats while waiting at the airport or for the transfer to the hotel.
It’s a stroller substitute in the airport – You don’t need a stroller if your little one is big enough. You can pull them along on the JetKids Bedbox using the excellent swivel wheels.
No need for a changing mat – you can use the washable mattress. No need to worry about putting your baby on a unsanitary changing table.
Independence – your child will have the independence of storing his or her items. Even better is the top opening that other ride on suitcases don’t have. No need to worry about items spilling out all over the confined airplane space.
It’s a bed – best of all is it’s unique feature, it opens out into a bed that your little one to sleep comfortably and safe.
Children get tired when travelling, so being able to sleep is a must. On a plane, there is limited space and sleeping sitting up is really a no go for a child. The BedBox bed feature can be used for children up to around 4 years old. Once you are in the air and the seat belt sign is switched off, you can turn the BedBox into a bed, with the help of it’s unique lid. Add on the washable mattress and you are ready for your sleepy child. Once done, store it all away and stow away before landing.
You are not just limited to airplanes, this can be used on trains and even buses when travelling. Store their special blanket, soft toy, etc in the box and you are ready to go. Have a look at the video below for more information on how the BedBox works.
