If you’re looking for a soft-sided suitcase for kids, this Mickey Mouse-themed American Tourister Disney Softside Luggage is a fun option.

The suitcase does have one mesh pocket inside, which is great for holding small items like charging cords and socks.

The Disney luggage has multiple compartments for easy storage and organization. Like many kids’ suitcases, there are only two wheels on the back of the suitcase plus little legs on the front to help prop it upright and keep it from rolling away. But it’s so cute little Star Wars fans won’t be bothered by that.

Where to Buy: Amazon

Author’s Note: This suitcase is popular and I’ve noticed it’s sometimes out of stock. American Tourister has a similar Baby Yoda suitcase plus a hard-sided version, and Walmart has an entire Star Wars luggage section on its website that includes suitcases, backpacks, and luggage tags.
