Handy Gadgets for Travelling with Young Children

We all know how stressful and nerve-wracking it can be to travel with young children, especially to keep them entertained, happy and safe. You’ll be relieved to know that the team at Escape the Rock have together some handy gadget ideas for parents.

Flying Long Haul

Flying Long Haul with young children? Our new favourite gadget is the Fly-Tot Pillow a handy inflatable airplane cushions that allows your little ones to lay flat on their airplane seat. The pillow is fitted in the space between the gap in the seats giving your kids more space to stretch out. www.fly-tot.com

Car Journeys

Travelling in the car? Checkout, PetPak, a kids travel all-in-one backpack that comes in the shape of an elephant, lion or panda. This is a combined laptray, pillow and blanket so no more messy spills and the kids have space to rest their tablets, books and games. More info: http://amzn.to/2m1Jfb3

Audio CDs of their favourite stories are great for the car, checkout the “Are we nearly there yet” CD collection read by TV personalities such as Justin Fletcher (aka Mr Tumble) and David Tennant. More info: http://bit.ly/2mfJ7B0

At the Airport

The Trunki ride on suitcase is always handy to lug the kids around the airport terminal but for those creative little ones we love the Ben-Bat GoVinci Trolley on wheels. This suitcase has a wipe-clean picture frame on the front for your kids to draw and doodle. More info http://amzn.to/2kSeSPB

Boredom Busters

Tablets or portable DVD players loaded with your kids favourite films and TV shows are a great boredom buster. To keep the noise down check out CozyPhones kids headphones that come in a comfortable soft fleece animal shaped headband. These are ideal if your kids hate inner earbuds or bulky over-ear headphones that don’t fit properly. More info: https://www.cozyphones.com

Finally for travel games you can’t beat the doodle sketch board or travel AquaDoodle, Hungry Hippos Grab and Go game, Bunchems On the Go easel, or classics like travel Guess Who, Connect 4 and Snakes and Ladders for all the family to enjoy.
