Trunki launches antimicrobial Abbie

Trunki, the UK company behind the original ride-on luggage for children, has welcomed the first ever antimicrobial addition to its range - Abbie the Ambulance.

The first of her kind, Abbie is made with in inbuilt Biomaster technology which inhibits the growth of harmful microbes on surfaces. The protection works 24/7 and is effective for the lifetime of the product.

As a thank you to the many key workers who have gone above and beyond to support the community this year, the new Trunki is named after a paramedic named Abbie who was nominated by friends and family for her hard work.

Her namesake Abbie the Ambulance is made from lightweight plastic and is covered by a 5-year guarantee. With 18 litres capacity and secure lockable catches, she can be used as hand luggage for holidays or perfect overnight bags for sleepovers. 

The first Trunki was invented by company founder and CEO Rob Law in 2006. He was born with cystic fibrosis and went onto defy the limits of the disease by building a successful business.

In 2006 he was famously rejected by the BBC show Dragon’s Den, but his award-winning brand has since gone on to sell over 4 million units and is available in about 100 countries worldwide. 

As well as ride-on suitcases, the company now makes a range of innovative travel accessories for families, including backpacks, child reins, travel pillows, car seats and face masks.

Rob Law says: “I’m delighted to launch Abbie with Biomaster protection, enabling Trunki to be relevant to our customers in this new normal and giving parents that extra confidence to travel safely”.
