Travel Gear for Kids

Must-have travel gear for kids to make traveling a little easier – and safer.

 

Buckle up, Cowboy

We all know a four-point travel harness is the safest for cars, but now you can have that added security on the plane. Kids Fly Safe offers the only FAA-Approved Child Safety Harness. And since it fits into a six-inch stuff sack and weighs just a pound, it won’t be a pain to pack.

Surfs Up

Heading to the beach, but don’t have room for all your kids swim vests? Then check out Swim School’s fabric lined Inflatable Swim Vest. You’ll be able to relax around the pool a bit, your kids will appreciate bouncing around the water and your suitcase will be no worse for the wear.

Music to Your Ears

iPad? Check. iPod? Check? Bulky and big headphones? Not anymore! Thanks to Cozy Phones for kids, now there is a fun, comfortable and easy-to-pack headphone that your child will love to wear! As comfortable as a fleece headband and as cute as a unicorn, panda bear, puppy or fox, your child will never want to take them off. And when they are ready for a nap, just pull down over their eyes, and voila, a sleep mask.

It’s Getting Hot in Here

Does your child complain about being too hot in the car because they are all the way in the back seat? Try the Noggle, which makes the back seat “cool again.” This handy gadget attaches to your front seat air vent and extends the air flow to the kids (and even pets) in the back seat. And with 6-, 8- and 10-foot Noggles in a variety of fabrics, you’ll find the one that fits your car and taste.

Lost and Found

One split second is all it takes for your little tyke to slip away unnoticed in the crowd. Luckily, there is something that can help you be quickly reunited. The Travel ID Bands by Kenson Kids provide six waterproof, durable and bilingual ID bracelets that will not tear or rip off, even in the ocean. For added safety, the child’s information is kept discreet inside the band to keep away from a stranger’s eyes. And since they are disposable, you can easily update a new band if your hotel or location changes.
