On the Road with Family Travel Kits
Save yourself some hassle with this fun travel goody bag for kids
The night before any trip, I get a little crazed with the packing. Not only do I have to remember clothes, shoes, juice boxes and all manner of other random stuff, I’m also expected to come up with a goody bag of some sort–a collection of toys, new and old, that are portable, indestructible and not likely to be lost under a hotel bed or airplane seat.
Also? They should actually keep my kid’s attention for more than two minutes. I won’t lie–I sometimes find the task harrowing.
Family Travel Kits offers you a compact and fun sack full of snacks, diversions and things you never knew you needed. They are also age-appropriate, with kits on offer for babies 0-18 months, todders 1-3 years and children 3-6 years and come in plane and road trip varieties.
Once he opened the black bag, Chet was enamored with a helicopter fan toy, fun stickers, a Toy Story-themed erasable drawing board and a book about the United States. I was impressed with the rain poncho and very small travel first aid kit–items, no doubt, I wouldn’t have thought to bring along (but, as luck would have it, came quite in handy).
But the most important thing? This bag kept Chet busy for almost the entire 3-hour trip. When he got bored of one toy or activity, he simply reached into his bag and got out another. No muss, no fuss. And he liked the idea of having his own special bag–he wanted to carry it with him wherever we went. Less crazy Mom, happy kid, easygoing family road trip–a definitely win/win for all involved.
But don’t take my word for it: try a Family Travel Kit for yourself. Travel Savvy Mom readers can order their own at a 10% discount by using the coupon code SAVVY. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Family Travel Kits is also offering you a chance to win a FREE family travel kit–simply add a comment telling us about what you think belongs in a travel goody bag. (And I’m totally cool with you saying, “booze.”)
A winner will be chosen at random by 5/30/11.
