Trunki Lotus F1 Team BoostApak – for kids who are going places

trunki Lotus F1 Team BoostApak

Mr G has felt a bit left out on the review front recently, so rather than further sabotage Princess Alexa Barbie reviews with Ken’s bottom, he was excited to be asked to trial the Trunki Lotus F1 Team BoostApak on our trip to Corfu. Plenty of recipes, style and travel inspiration coming soon from gorgeous Corfu both here and on A Residence, we stayed at the Corfu Club which was paradise, we organised the trip through On the Beach after winning this competition on A Residence.

The BoostApak is a rucksack and car booster combined. It is perfect for holidays, but also just as handy for kids who often take lifts with other family members or friends.

On our trip to Corfu we were in and out of taxis and our hire cars several times. It was great to know we already had a car seat and that it also doubles up as a rucksack. Airlines vary, but Ryan Air allowed this plus a Trunki as hand luggage, so that was G’s luggage for the week sorted without any hold baggage!

Miss L took her new dolphin paddlepak, latest in the paddlepak range, and her Moshi Trunki, the waterproof dolphin paddlepak came in really handy, not just for the flight, but for beach trips. It also folds down so I would be tempted to pop Mr G’s paddlepak in his BoostAPak or Trunki next time!

There was no way round it, Mr G just knew how cool he was, the Lotus F1 Team logos and colour way of this Boostpak make it especially grown up and stylish.

He was happy to carry the bag for most of the journey, but we also found it sat nicely on top of our cases so was no hassle. It slipped neatly under his seat on the plane too.

Mr G is 5 and took great pleasure in flipping up the side rests and padded back rest, and converting the bag to his booster seat. It is an easy peasy manoeuvre. You can see the little red buttons in the picture below, just click them and the sides lift up, they then fold down under a  flap on the rucksack when not in use.

There was plenty of room for all his journey essentials inside and the tough exterior means games consoles, iPads etc (and bears) are well protected.

We are big fans of Trunki, we tested the cases on our trip to Miami,  and the paddlepaks to Camp Bestival.

The more I travel, the more I believe that having the right luggage makes a huge difference to the experience, especially when you travel as a family!

Next I need a pashmina, and an upgrade. Mr G did us proud on the style front at Corfu airport though look, 5 going on 15…

    That is actually a really fantastic idea. I have lost count of the amount of times we haven’t taken one with us and one of us has had to wait at an airport whilst the other does a mad dash to the nearest shops to try and find new booster seats! This would solve that! 🙂

    The BoostaPak is such a innovative idea! I love that you buy 2 products in one and it’s kid friendly too.

    I just love the idea of this being a booster seat too as it makes it so perfect for travelling with. The Lotus F1 Team look juts makes it look far more grown up than anything similar that I’ve seen too. Perfect for a young man going places!

    I think I am going to have to look into getting one of these boostapaks especially as we are travelling so much now and Alison is still too young for me to be comfortable with her not having a car seat. What a great review

    What a sophisticated young man! This is a great idea for travel abroad, especially when using hire cars – nice to have your own booster seat.

    What a great idea. These don’t look babyish either which I seem to always have to consider at the moment. Looking forward to hearing more about your trip

    […] Mr A last night said it felt like the first really exciting, proper summer holiday we’d had. We couldn’t put our finger on why, perhaps its the first when they’ve both been school kids, perhaps they are just at that magic age.  They seemed grown up and ready for endless adventure this summer, Mr G loved his BoostApak, more on those here.
