The Contenders in Trunki vs Disney



Vrum Disney Princess Childrens Ride-On Suitcase



Probably the nearest Disney Princess ride-on suitcase to a Trunki.

It opens at either end rather than opening like a suitcase which might present some challenges but on the flip side may make it easier to get things in and out on a plane or in an airport.

Vrum Disney Princess Specification:

  • Weight 1.74kg
  • Dimensions 45 x 28.2 x 19.2 cm
  • Storage 18 litres
  • Availability Poor
  • Our Rating 1/5

Travelbetter Rating 1 out of 5

So why have we given this great Disney ride on suitcase only 1 out of 5?

Well, it is a great suitcase, with good reviews and is the nearest thing to a true Disney Trunki...but, it is continually out of stock! making it a frustrating choice for many parents and casting some doubts over the provider.

If the stock levels were better this ride on suitcase would be scoring 4 out of 5

What people are saying about this Disney Ride On

"My granddaughter was very happy with her own travel suitcase."

"Granddaughter loves it. No problems."

"Looks lovely my 3 year old loves it"

Pearl the Princess Trunki



This bright blue Trunki is similar in design to the old Penolope version with an elegant carriage design on the suitcase to carry your little Princess on.

Pearl the Princess Trunki Specification:

  • Weight 1.6kg
  • Dimensions 46 x 21 x 31 cm
  • Storage 18 litres
  • Availability Great
  • Our rating 3/5

Travelbetter Rating 3 out of 5

While the concept of this trunki is more about carrying your princess or prince around then be adorned with Disney Princesses, it is still a great ride on suitcase for kids with all the usual reliability we come to expect from the Trunki brand.

What people are saying about this Disney Ride On

"Good little case for a little girl to pack her clothes away for a short holiday or a week or two very roomy, great that the little fastenings lock with possibly just a coin, and so versetile, very quick delivery and value for money compared to some we have seen and seems to be sturdy enough to weather bumps and scrapes."

Disney Princess Ride On Suitcase



Bright Pink ride on case with a picture of Rapunzel and Cinderella.

Disney Princess Ride On Specifications:

  • Weight 2.3kg
  • Dimensions 50 x 39 x 20 cm
  • Storage 34 litres
  • Availability Poor
  • Our rating 1/5

Travelbetter Rating 1 out of 5

When you think of a Disney Princess ride on Suitcase this is what comes to mind. Bright (Pink) and adorned with one or more Disney leading ladies. So why another 1 out of 5?

Sadly it is exactly the same reason that the Vrum model scored 1 out of 5, stock availability seems to be a big problem.

If the stock levels were better this ride on suitcase would be scoring 3 out of 5

What people are saying about this Disney Ride On

No reviews yet - be the first (if you can get your hands on one).


The Winner of Disney vs Trunki Princess



Given the availability issues of the other two contenders it was an obvious and easy choice to pick Pearl Princess from Trunki as the winner of this match up.

Hopefully, the other providers will sort out their stock issues soon and give Trunki a run for their money.

But until they do, we recommend you stick to the Trunki brand if you are looking for a Princess Ride On Suitcase.

It has a fun design, is well made and stock levels shouldn't be a problem.
