If you travel with little ones you know its always a balancing act moving them around with you. Micro Lazy Luggage is a professional looking carry-on bag with a fold-out seat that allows you to tote your toddler (20kg max) around with you. We took the Micro Lazy Luggage out for a test ride.
The carry-on consists of a hard case that seems resistant to most bumps. The suitcase rolls on two wheels except when you’re bringing your toddler
You access your items through a zipper pouch under the seat. The pocket is layered such that there are two pockets. A tablet pocket sits up front, while a pocket underneath can hold items you don’t need to access as easily. Lazy Luggage is designed as a carry-on and does not have enough space for more than a single change of clothing. We packed ours with just what was needed for the flight – changes of clothing for the littles, books, toys, tablet and some diapers.
When you’re ready to convert the suitcase into a rolling seat you pull out the second set of wheels, making a tripod. The wheels pull out easily and the suitcase rolls so well, even with the tripod wheels extended.
The tripod also acts as a place for little ones to put their feet while you wheel them around. My five-year-old had to tuck his feet up to avoid me dragging them, but my three-year-old was able to sit comfortably.
My five-year-old enjoyed being able to ride on my suitcase. This is a great alternative to hauling a stroller though the airport, particularly now that some airlines/airports require you to check your stroller before security.
The Lazy Luggage worked well on cobblestones and is a professional looking alternative to ride on luggage that is kid themed.
Lazy Luggage does not have a hands-free option but does have a side-carry handle allowing you to lift it down stairs. I caution you that when you carry it this way your sidekick will be very unhappy they cannot ride it anymore.
Overall I think this is a great option for traveling families who want to avoid child-themed ride-ons. You could easily use this carry-on while moving around the city during your trip. It would be perfect for train travel where long platforms are an issue. Unlike other ride-ons it’s also nice that the child stays in your control and is not off on their own.

Micro-Step sent us a Lazy Luggage for review purposes. We did not keep this suitcase and all opinions are our own.
