I bought this carry-on for my 3-year-old daughter and she is in love with it. The colors and gold accents are so fun and even without packing cubes it's super easy to keep organized with the pockets, zippers, and straps. We have used it for air and car travel both expanded and collapsed and have had no issues. It's easy enough for her to roll herself and we've had no issues with the wheels or handle. We'll definitely buy another Calpak for our youngest kiddo when she's ready for it!
