Haven't we all needed more hands when travelling with babies and toddlers?

With all the extra luggage needed on a break away with a young one - as well as having to carry him in your arms, it's physically taxing and stressful to travel.

Mountain Buggy has come to the rescue with its brand new Bagrider suitcase. Your child is strapped safely to the bag via a cushion and 3-point safety harness with adjustable straps.

Suitable for toddlers from 9 months to about 3 years, and with a maximum weight of 15kg, the four wheels used in travelling seat mode makes for impeccable stability and manoeuvrability. 

The suitcase part is also custom built for family needs - there's plenty of space inside, as well as additional storage at the rear of the cushioned seat liner where you can put your passports or phone. 

Without the baby/toddler attachments, the Bagrider is simply great cabin luggage, and once baby has outgrown the need for the harness, you can use it just as you would any other luggage.

Have personally just spent two weeks travelling in Japan with a three-year-old who would run off at any opportunity, I would have given my right arm for one of these.

It's $149 from Mountain Buggy - secure one now for the big travel season ahead.
