Lugabug is a compact travel accessory that makes traveling with children fun, safe and convenient.

Kids love Lugabug because it’s an exciting way to cruise through the airport without falling behind or getting tired feet. 

You will love it because Lugabug carries your kid for you. You'll know where they are at all times and have a free hand to carry extra bags, a coffee or… nothing at all! 

And when you're in a rush, with kids in tow, you’ll be grateful for Lugabug to help make your flight on time. 

Recommended for children 2 years and up with a weight limit of 70 lbs.

Lugabug is recommended for children 2 years and up with a weight limit of 70 lbs.*

* The 70 lbs. limit is based on the robustness of Lugabug and the strength of your suitcase. 

Securing Lugabug to your suitcase can be done in matter of seconds by following these 3 steps: 

  • Slip an adjustable strap over the top of your suitcase handle 
  • Attach the side strap around the back
  • Hold onto the suitcase handle while your child sits in the chair, tilt back and off you go!

While the design of the chair allows for the child to fit in snug, you may choose to use the safety strap across their lap. You can also adjust the seat angle to your child’s preference. 

Reminder: keep a hand on the luggage to ensure that the child's weight does not tip the chair forward; similar to stabilizing a child in a bike seat

Lugabug is compact, versatile and easy to transport when not in use. It lays flat against your suitcase so there’s no need to remove it when going through security or when storing in an overhead compartment.

Lugabug is multi-functional:

  • An extra pocket to carry your Kindle, iPad or magazine
  • A stand-alone chair or sitting pad
  • A bag or backpack for you or your child's personal belongings; such as books, stuffed animals, a blanket, etc.

Lugabug has been designed in partnership with leading industry experts. It’s overbuilt using the highest quality material for durability, comfort and safety. 

Each chair is hand sewn with over 20 different parts. It's constructed with 1000 denier nylon and lined on the inside by 3D spacer mesh to ensure comfort and breathability.

We’re patent pending and are working with a local manufacturer to begin production in our home town of Seattle, Washington.

Features:

  • Stylish
  • Durable
  • Comfortable
  • Compact (~13x13 inches)
  • Flexible, so it can be rolled or folded
  • Light weight (approx. 18 oz.)
  • Safety strap and reflective stripe for added visibility
  • Adjustable straps to fit most sizes of suitcases
  • Adjusts to any angle for comfort
  • Multi-functional

There are currently two color choices to choose from:

  • Blue with grey/black stripe and accents
  • Grey with pink/black stripe and accents

In the future we plan to offer Lugabug in a variety of colors:

Risks and challenges

There are 20 distinct parts (fabric, hardware, stays) that make up the Lugabug chair. Until the Kickstarter campaign is underway and product orders are more concrete, production dates are estimated. Because we have not finalized contracts with potential suppliers, we may not be able to fulfill a large order within the anticipated time-frame. In that situation we will work with our suppliers to expedite our request or find another supplier, all of which may put production behind schedule.
