Trunki and the Wild Place Project – Giveaway

Yesterday I wrote about a wonderful project in Bristol introduced to me by Trunki, focused on protecting threatened habitats.

The Wild Place Project is on a fund-raising mission to ensure that giraffes are protected, that the decrease currently being seen in the species (from 140,000 to 80,000 in 15 years) is reversed. The Wild Place Project is looking to raise £750,000 to build a home for a giraffe named Gerry, and to safeguard a family in the wild.Giraffe House AppealWe were invited to the Wild Place Project by Trunki to understand the project, and see how Trunki are supporting the project.The Wild Place Trunki ShopBecause, what better way to support the project by introducing Gerry the Giraffe – the Trunki!!

Launched on the 29th March, Gerry the Giraffe will see Trunki donating £5 for every Giraffe Suitcase sold to Bristol Zoo to help support their Giraffe appeal and the conservation work they are doing out in Africa. You can read more about the Giraffe appeal on the Wild Place website.Trunki funThis was to be my children’s first experience of Trunki and we were all hook, line and sinker from the moment we met.

We’ve been fortunate that we’ve been able to put the products we received from Trunki through their paces over the past few weeks, from a sleepover at Chessington and our current stayover in Todmorden, the suitcases have fitted perfectly in our car boot, and the lion seat belt covers and neck supports have proudly adorned the children as they fall asleep on car journeys, and I don’t cringe nearly as much with their uncomfortable sleeping positions.

And I think I’ll definitely be back writing about the PuddlePaks – swimming lessons have definitely seen a bit more responsibility on their part!

But the Trunki’s, well, they’re already making life a lot easier. I love how much responsibility the children are willing to take when they want to- and the Trunki’s make them want to. Counting the outfits they’ll need, making sure their pj’s are packed, and a toothbrush. And then a lot more considerately filling the other half of their case with toys. I love how much consideration goes into maximising the number of toys are in the case!

There’s also what I’ve been lucky enough to learn about my children in the process. We were lucky enough to receive three Trunki’s, and watching the children trading with each other for their favourites was to witness amazing negotiation skills- where they were all winners.

More, absolutely, heart warming was to witness and to listen to E talk about how he’d develop his Trunki. It had been STEM week at school, and E had added 1+1 when he learned about the inventor behind Trunki. And decided he would take Trunki to the next level- by introducing an engine. And I fell a little bit more in love with him as I listened to his thoughts take hold.

It’s daft, but Trunki brings something practical and creative to our home.

And that’s before I’ve even tried pulling them across a concourse!

So, if like me, you love to learn more about how your children think, I have the most wonderful giveaway.Trunki Zimba and GerryYou can win a family pass to the Wild Place Project and a Trunki of your choice by entering the Rafflecopter below- Good Luck!

    That’s so unfair to have to choose only one! It would have to be Tipu Tiger (Bear just loves tigers) or Bernard Bee (when he says bumble bee it’s so cute)
