We are a team of big kids dedicated to imagineering cool stuff that puts the brakes on tiring travel and the smiles back on family faces.
We believe travel is about new experiences, creating memories and making every journey just as enjoyable as the destination. We understand that whilst parents buy products, children make friends with them, so everything we create has the functionality that grown-ups value, and the personality that kids adore. We have a team of talented imagineers that are dedicated to making travelling with tots a doddle. They use ingenious design (and a little bit of fairy dust) to create products for every journey, whether it's a day trip to the zoo, or a round the world trip.
Good to know...
Since 2006 we've stacked up over 100 awards from the nursery, toy, design and business sectors from all over the world.
GOOD TO THE PLANET

MADE IN THE UK
In 2012, a two year long project to bring Trunki home came to fruition when the first UK made ride-on suitcase (aptly, - a London 2012 Olympics Trunki!) sprinted off the production line!

We've got tons of online 5* reviews that are testament to how much our products are loved by parents and kids alike!
TESTED TO THE LIMITS
We put all our products through their paces with rigourous testing to make sure they are super safe for little ones.

The Trunki Story
IT STARTED WITH AN IDEA
Rob Law entered a university competition to design a piece of luggage. He visited a department store for inspiration and ended up looking at ride-on toys. He thought about how to utilise the wasted space, and the idea for Trunki was born. Rob went on to win the competition.
A POSITIVE START
Rob received a grant from the Prince's Trust to get his business off the ground. Later that year he signed a licensing deal with a Saudi Arabian toy company.
THAT DIDN'T WORK OUT...
The toy company went into liquidation, it wasn't the launch pad that Rob had hoped for and instead he decided to go it alone.
TRUNKI IS BORN AGAIN
The first container of Trunki ride-ons arrived at Avonmouth completely unaware that they would revoluntionise family travel!
INTO THE DRAGON'S DEN
Rob took Trunki into the Dragon's Den, it was all going well, he even took Richard Farleigh for a spin, but things took a turn for the worst when Theo Paphitis got into fistycuffs with Trixie...
With a rapidly growing team, we moved into our new office - a converted Chapel that we've nicknamed the Mothership, which comes complete with a games room and escape chute (or slide!)
TRUNKI GETS A 'BOOST'!
Our first major product launch following Trunki was BoostApak. The ingenious booster seat come backpack sold out within just 6 hours of being online!
A VISIT TO THE QUEEN
Trunki Daddy, Rob Law picked up an MBE in the New Years Honours. He even took a very special Corgi Trunki with him to accept it.
ON THE APPRENTICE
BoostApak was selected to be featured on 'The Apprentice'. It was taken to France and broke boardroom records for receiving the biggest order of all the time!
1 MILLION TRUNKI RIDE-ONS SOLD
We celebrated the sale of our one millionth Trunki by dressing up like space folk.
MADE IN THE UK
On our 6th birthday, the first UK made Trunki rolled off the production line at our factory in Plymouth.
TRUNKI ON THE TELLY
We took our first foray into the world of TV advertising with the help of those talented folk at Aardman Animations to show off our adorable aquatic creatures, PaddlePak!

We scooped our 90th award from Sir Richard Branson! We came 42nd in the Sunday Times FT 100, and picked up the coveted innovation award.
2 MILLION TRUNKI RIDE-ONS SOLD!
To celebrate the sale of our 2 millionth Trunki, we had a spooktacular Halloween do!
