If you are a traveling parent on Facebook I’m sure you’ve seen the videos and posts about the Mountainbuggy Bagrider, which combines luggage and a stroller into one piece of gear. A few months back we also tested the Microscooter Lazy Luggage, which is similar. What if I told you that we just tested a product that could turn any rolling suitcase you had in the house into a stroller?
The Lugabug retails for $59.99, a fraction of the cost of the all-in-one options and it turns any suitcase into a rolling stroller.
The Lugabug has a compact design that takes up no additional room. I secured it to the front of my roll-aboard, zipped it up and hardly noticed it was there. It does not need to be removed, on this size suitcase, when the suitcase is placed in the overhead bin. It stored easily inside the front pocket of my suitcase when I did not have it installed.
The Lugabug is recommended for ages two and up, with a max weight of 60lbs. We gave it a test with all three of my kids. The five year old is just barely under the weigh limit. He was a bit uncomfortable in the seat and I think honestly he is too old to be riding in it. I was able to easily pull him though. The three year old fit perfectly and happily took a little ride. He was a bit wiggly and I did use the lap belt that is provided.
We decided to take the one year old on a trip with the Lugabug as well, as he kept trying to climb in, despite him being under the recommended age. The lap belt has a clip closure and did provide some support, but I do wish the belt had a crotch strap to make it harder for a child to slide out.
The one year old had no trouble riding in the Lugabug though and enjoyed it once we got going.
You do need to be holding the handle when this is in use with younger kids or the bag will tip forward. With our five year old this wasn’t an issue as he kept his feet on the floor and could hold the bag up. The three year old could not. We were right there but if you walked away from the bag you would likely come back to your child under the suitcase. Luckily it’s not far to fall, but still unpleasant so use with care!
Overall I think the Lugabug is a wonderful tool for traveling parents. Having the ability to use your suitcase as a stroller is a fantastic option. We love that Lugabug can be used on luggage you already have, as our largest complaint about the Lazy Luggage was that we couldn’t pack much in it. (We have not tested the Mountain Buggy Bagrider yet!)
