Instead of bringing a stroller on board a flight from Japan to the U.S., Amber Dohrenwend of The Cardboard Collective blog used a sturdy cardboard box — with casters attached to its bottom — to help tote both her toddler and her three-year-old daughter through long airport terminals and checkpoints.
Amber used a produce box — the kind with a waxy coating — that has holes already in it. An old necktie threaded through the box’s holes made a handy pull-strap.
Amber placed an extra piece of cardboard in the bottom of the box (pictured below), to give the box added stability and to cover the casters’ screws and bolts (so her kids wouldn’t sit directly on them!). The box’s dimensions are within those for carry-on items.
