Fun and Functional Travel Bags

Going out of town? Need a new back pack or luggage?  Check out these adorable and practical bags for kids.  They are perfect for travel or school.  They come in many colors and styles. The Percy Penguin Set ($90) by Travel Buddies includes an 18-inch rolling suitcase and a matching 13-inch hard-shell backpack. It’s a convenient option — the rolling handle can be adjusted to either an adult or child height. For all the pint-sized bookworms, this backback, featuring Eric Carle‘s The Very Hungry Caterpillar, will be a fan favorite. A retractable pull handle on the Mickey Wheeled Luggage by Heys makes it a great, kid-friendly option.
