TRAVEL MATTERS

Buffalo crossing, BorneoAt purple suitcase, we want to make our incredible world accessible to all kids and give them opportunities to connect to it through exciting digital journeys. With purple suitcase, kids can discover, celebrate, and more deeply understand their own neighborhoods and communities around the globe. We believe that learning about diverse people and cultures empowers individuals and builds important bridges.

 

BITS OF WONDER + LOADS OF EXCITEMENT

Rickshaw, ChinaAt no time in history has our planet ever felt smaller, yet do we really know each other? Do we know what children in Japan have for lunch at school? Or what kids in Kenya see when they look outside their windows when they first wake up? Do we know what their favorite music sounds like or how they spend their family holidays? With these and other every day questions in mind, we saw an exciting opportunity. An opportunity to create a uniquely fun-filled and captivating place for kids and their families to celebrate their own cultural richness, share it with friends, and explore traditions beyond their own. That place is purple suitcase.
