If the thought of a long haul flight with young children fills you with fear, you're not alone. It's the one thing parents dread the most and often puts them off travelling further afield. We've been there many a times with over tired kids who just can't settle on a flight; apologising to other passengers for their crying, screaming and general disruptiveness. While we can't guarantee you a completely stress free flight, the JetKidsBedBox® is about as close as it gets and a must have for travelling with young children.
So what is this miracle, I hear you say?
In short, BedBox® is the ultimate travel gadget for children up to 6-7 years of age and takes the hassle out of flying with young children. It is your child's hand luggage, ride-on suitcase and inflight bed/leg-rest,all in one smart little box.
As with most ride-on suitcases, the BedBox has been designed to comply hand luggage regulations and offers a 20 litre storage capacity so your kids can bring their favourite toys and games on board. Kids love riding on them through the airport and parents love them as they turn what would normally be a boring part of the journey into a positive and fun experience for the kids.
But what about the part of the journey that you spend in the air? For many parents, the real hassle about travelling starts when entering the aircraft. The children usually get tired and exhausted during the flight, and many of them need their sleep. However, the sleeping opportunities for children on-board most aircrafts are very limited.
That is why a former aircraft engineer and airline Captain, together with his wife, spent 6 years developing BedBox®, a patented children’s ride on suitcase that easily converts into an aircraft bed/leg-rest. BedBox® is the perfect travel gadget for children up to approximately 7 years of age. The bed/leg-rest feature can be used for children all the way up to approximately 5-6 years, and the ride-on suitcase can be used from when they are able to sit safely on their own, all the way up to around 7 years.
When the aircraft is airborne, and the seatbelt-sign has been switched off, you can easily turn the BedBox® into "bedmode" with the help of its unique lid, and a washable (hand wash & air dry) mattress that is also included. BedBox® is designed to be used during the cruise portion of the flight, and is easily stowed away when needed.
