Biomaster protected children’s ride-on luggage wins design award

Publish date: 26 okt 2021

Biomaster partner Trunki has won a Silver-medal at the 10th Annual Junior Magazine Design Awards with the antimicrobial children’s luggage ‘Abbie the Ambulance’. Trunki, the UK company behind the original ride-on luggage, was honoured in the Best Children’s Backpack/Suitcase Design category.

The first of her kind, Abbie the Ambulance is made with built in 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.

Abbie is manufactured 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 as the perfect overnight bags for sleepovers. 

The first Trunki was invented by company founder and CEO Rob Law in 2006. 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.

The Junior Design Awards are highly coveted in the family lifestyle award arena, recognized by brands, clients and consumers alike.

Rob Law says: “I’m delighted Abbie has won silver and with her silver ion Biomaster protection, she gives families that extra confidence to travel more safely.”

Addmaster Managing Director Dr. Sandrine Garnier says: “We are thrilled to be working with the creative and innovative team at Trunki, and hope this is the first of many more antimicrobial travel accessories.”
