What do Bintan and Business Creation have in common?

For me at least, there is a cute common denominator.




Trunki: Luggage for little people. (:

Aren’t they the cutest?!


In my entrepreneurship module for school, a professor showed us snippets of Dragon’s Den UK, whereby budding entrepreneurs pitch to venture capitalists in hopes of receiving funds and mentoring. Rob Law and his idea of Trunkis were shot down by the panel, in part, because of weak straps. (A panelist literally yanked the strap off the bag :/ to test how child-proof and safe it was. yikes!!)

Despite being a Dragon’s Den UK reject, Trunki has become a commercial success, reportedly worth over $1 million!

On my recent trip to Bintan, I had two Trunki sightings! Which made me really happy (and jealous!)

Why wasn’t this around when I was a kid?! ))):


I think Trunkis are so adorable!

For kids, its kinda fun to feel all-grown-up, carrying your own suitcase with your stuff in it.

For parents, it’s convenient that your kid carries their own stuff (more space for shopping :D:D:D?)

And for both parent and child, isn’t is SO convenient that their little suitcase doubles us as a toy/seat for when they are bored or tired?!




Now if only they catered to children at heart! (:
