The Co-operative launches competition to win Trunki


June 3, 2011 - To launch its ‘Family Firsts’ online guides for parents, The Co-operative Magazine is giving away a pair of funky Trunkis worth £80!

Trunkis are ride-on suitcases for children aged between three and six years old, and they rose to fame after designer Rob Law pitched his idea (unsuccessfully) to Peter Jones, Duncan Bannatyne, Theo Paphitis, and Deborah Meaden on BBC One’s Dragon’s Den in 2006. The little colourful suitcases have since taken the world by storm and are now a must-have item for all families with young children. They are available in a wide range of colours, designs and characters, including the Gruffalo, Freddie the Fire Engine and Penelope the Princess.

The Co-operative is giving its readers the chance to win two of these brilliant suitcases as part of its plan to provide useful and interesting information for parents and families. Readers of the online magazine can enjoy everything from seasonal events guides and advice for great family days out, to healthy recipes and easy ways to recycle at home.

Family Firsts is a new section of the online magazine dedicated to giving parents advice on everything from taking the children abroad to potty training. Readers will be able to find useful articles, videos and podcast in the Family & Finance category.

To win this fantastic prize, simply visit the Travel & Leisure section of The Co-operative Magazine, click on ‘win a pair of kids’ Trunkis’ and enter by filling in the simple online form with your name, address and contact details.

The competition will close on 17 July 2011.
