Kansei Engineering Type I is a popular technology that can determine a new product concept. Kansei words collection is a crucial operation of Kansei Engineering Type I. However, the existing models from previous research are unable to systematically collect the Kansei words of all products. Theoretically, Experience Map can be used to collect Kansei words. Therefore, this study was aimed to add knowledge of the way Kansei Words of children’s luggage can be collected by using Experience Map. A total of 186 Kansei words and 10 Kansei phrases of children’s luggage and 5 categories of children’s luggage value were identified.
