Written by: Katherine McHenry

When planning a trip with your kiddos by air, sea, or lots of roads, all parents need to think about their "bag of tricks"!  Here is a list of 5 parent-approved toy picks to make your adventures a whole lot less stressful:

#1. Squeeze Rockets.  Launch these soft, safe foam rockets by squeezing air from the hand-held bulb. It's fun to pop them around the car or run after the rockets in motion. These are super light to pack and a big suprise for when you arrive!

#2. Key Crayons.  Never leave home without your keys to unlock your coloring imagination!  Useful on route and throughout your trip.

#3. Peek a Boo Bag/Everything from A to Z. This hide and seek game builds vocabulary and object recognition skills in little ones.

#4. Trunki Sunny. Let kids pack their own fun essentials for the journey. This suitcase turns into a ride-on toy for those challenging waits at the airport.  Travel time may be become the favorite part of their trip!
