We also show you how to turn a simple Trunki into you own custom Gruffalo Trunki.

In addition to that, to help you decide if you want a Gruffalo Trunki, we talk about our own experience of using one.

While it is nearly impossible to find a brand new Gruffalo Trunki you can use this price to help assess the price of a second hand version.

Price for a second hand Gruffalo Trunki

The price of a second hand Gruffalo can range from as little as £10 right up to £35 plus postage.

Where can you still buy a Gruffalo Trunki

As we said earlier, they are no longer producing the Gruffalo Trunki.

Therefore, you can’t buy a Gruffalo Trunki at either Amazon, Argos or even Trunki and need to look at second hand retailers.

The best place to find a Gruffalo Trunki right now is eBay.

But, you can also look at Gumtree and Facebook Market Place.

How to make your own Gruffalo Trunki

Now, rather than scour the second hand retailers for a Gruffalo Trunki and risk getting a duff one.

You could opt to create your own.

This is a simple technique that we have recommend before but it works really well.

Simple purchase a single colour Pink or Blue Trunki (for around £35) and then decorate it with Gruffalo Stickers and Transfers.

The following is an example we have mocked up in Photoshop to give you an idea.

Our experience and review with a Gruffalo Trunki

The Gruffalo must be one of the most well known kids stories in the UK today.

The two Travelbetter kids have grown up loving the story and the sequel and now doubt your kids are to.

In fact, Travelbetter Girl liked it so much that when it came to buying her a Trunki (quite a few years ago now) it was an obvious choice to get her a Gruffalo Trunki and we would recommend it for the Gruffalo fan or fans in your life.

We first purchased a Gruffalo Trunki for Travelbetter Girl back in 2014 to come with us on a trip to Florida and she has loved it ever since.

While there are reports that the Trunki shape can be a bit awkward with overhead lockers we have not had this problem ourselves whenever we have flown.

However, it is worth pointing out we have not used our Gruffalo Trunki on a budget airline and this tends to be where the size and shape becomes more of an issue.

During the five years we used our Gruffalo Trunki has lasted very well and still shows no sign of damage or significant wear.

Plus, this includes continuous use as a ride on toy both at home and abroad.

We have always found the storage on our Gruffalo Trunki perfect allowing us to get a blanket, toys, change of clothes and snack or two for the journey inside.

Overall, we have been very happy with our Gruffalo Trunki suitcase and it gets a big thumbs up from the Travelbetter kids.

So, if you can get one second hand we strongly recommend you do.
