Two inventive parents have created the perfect suitcase to make family holidays a breeze.

The Mountain Buggy Bagrider allows you to strap your child onto the handle of your suitcase to simply whisk them through the busy airport.

This means that you can convert your suitcase into a buggy, to make airport travel stress-free.

The suitcase can transform from a carry-on bag, which can hold 15kg of weight, to a pushchair with a detachable cushioned seat liner.

It will set you back a whopping £99 and is available on the Mountain Buggy website.

The product was invented by UK-based parents Tom and Tamar Clarke who have two young children of their own.

The Clarke’s said: “As parents of two young children, we understand that flying away on holiday isn’t the stress free experience we’d all like it to be.

“Unfortunately the airport process isn’t easy when traveling.

“As air crew we realised we were not alone in experiencing this problem.

“We see it every time we go to work, so we designed a cabin bag that easily converts into a traveling seat for infants.”

The parents decided to create the suitcase to minimise the stress when buggies are taken away from families before boarding a flight.

They added: “Your buggy could be taken off you at check-in, or if you’re allowed through the terminal you’ll experience delays at an ever more stringent security check; unpacking, folding, scanning and reassembling the buggy to the great delight of all those queuing passengers behind you!

“The biggest problem is that the buggy will be taken from you at the aircraft door and put in the hold.

“More often than not, the next time you see it will be at the over-sized baggage reclaim at destination.

“This means carrying tired children and all their necessities on often long walks through the terminal.”
