Does anyone remember the big old travel trunks of yesteryear? You know the kind seen in old movies when people would travel by boat or train or maybe even by horse and carriage. I remember images of people packing up travel trunks with all of their clothes and goods that would be needed for lengthy vacations. I would always wonder if the kids got there own mini-trunks to put their clothes in or were their things stowed away with their parents. I guess you can say the site of travel trunks always fascinated me. What was inside of them? Where have they been? Every once in a while I come across one at an estate or garage sale and I still have these wonderings.
Recently I was introduced to a really cute idea that is related to travel trunks
It is the Doll Storage Trunk and Bed made available from The Queen’s Treasures. Well not the actual Queen of England but from the website called The Queen’s Treasures.com. They sell this really cute and durable doll storage trunk that has many of the same qualities of those old time travel trunks. This one however is not made for clothes but made for dolls up to 18” inches tall. The quality of the trunk is good and sturdy. It is made of wood and it is decorated very nicely. When you open up the trunk there is a spot for a doll to be stored safely. Across from this is a pull down Murphy bed that opens up when you have reached your travel destination.
The other side of the trunk turns into a closet with hanging rod and hangers for your dolls clothing. The whole set up is really cute and would be a great gift for any young girl.
Just seeing it myself made me want to relive the doll days of my childhood
However it looks like my daughter will be the first one to travel soon with her doll. She has already set up the inside of the Doll Storage Trunk by making the bed and hanging up her doll clothes. We’re just waiting for that horse and carriage to pick us up for next journey.
Disclosure: I received the sample of the product mentioned above to facilitate this post.
