Toddler Travel Gear
Try these portable products to simplify your vacation
If you will be traveling more than once or twice a year or anticipate expanding your clan in the future, it’s worth investing in some travel gear that will help your trip go smoother. So many nifty portable products are available these days that can take away some of the dread from toddler travel and simplify the process for everyone involved.
- A portable play yard, inflatable travel cot, lightweight booster seat, moveable bedrail and safety gate, toddler-carrying backpack and a sturdy collapsible stroller may ease some of your life on the go.
- Car organizers, window sun shades and backseat activity trays are handy tools for long road trips.
- Frequent flyers might consider a wheeled contraption that straps onto a car seat so you can roll your child through a busy airport.
- Beach bums should invest in a good shade solution, some SPF swim suits and plenty of sand and water toys. See our travel gear section for more ideas.
Let’s face it, a lot of this gear can be pricey and cumbersome, and if you only use it a few times it is easy to rationalize that you can do without. In recent years, the booming business of travel gear rentals has emerged to solve this age-old problem. These agencies are popping up all over the world, delivering bulky items for your children right to your destination so you don’t have the hassle of lugging them with you. Brilliant.
