Travelling with Kids: 7 Must-Have Accessories for a Stress-Free Journey

Aug 03, 2018

Going on an adventure with the kids this school holiday? Here are some travel accessories you need to pack for a comfortable and stress-free journey for your little ones.

1. A plush toy to keep them company

Barbra Plush Toy

Bring their favourite plush toy to give them a sense of familiarity and security away from their comfort zone. It can help ease anxieties during take-off and landing, and keep them company during the long flight so you could get a moment of peace too.

2. Some doodling tools to keep their hands occupied

Keep little hands busy with a doodle mat. Get their creative juices flowing to make time fly by during your long-haul flight. With wash-out pens, you won’t have to worry about staining – just wipe off stray colours from the table or clean dirty hands with soap at the end of your journey!

3. Crazy faces to keep them entertained

Magnetic Book Crazy Faces

Put a smile even on grumpy faces with this amazingly fun game of crazy faces. Let young ones mix and match different pieces to make their own expressions. What makes this a great travel companion? It’s magnetic and comes in a handy box so you won’t lose pieces along your journey.

4. A backpack to store necessities

Mini Backpack With Rein Owl

Store all their little necessities in their own mini backpack to keep things organised. This way, you won’t have to rummage through your hand-carry for their random little knick-knacks. A harness bag also helps keep little ones close by during your trip!

5. A bedtime story to get them sleepy

Travelling during the night? Don’t forget to pack some bedtime stories to help calm excited minds and get them ready to fall asleep. A well-rested kid makes travelling a breeze!

6. Answers to their millions of questions

Questions & Answers About Your Body

Satiate inquisitive minds with all the answers to their millions of questions. Bring a “Questions & Answers” book along so older ones can find out the answers on their own, or read it together with younger ones to keep them from getting bored.

7. A pillow to keep them nice and snug

Counting Sheep Pillow

Help make long journeys more comfortable with a cosy pillow. Airline seats aren’t built for small bodies, so bring along a pillow to keep them nice and snug. It’ll also make bedtime a lot easier with a familiar support.
