The list author says: "Hi! I have two kids and a blog, www.tottoteen.net My older daughter is in a wheelchair. The younger is typical. I write about our adventures. These are items I packed for a recent flight. I know that all kids are different - I've tried to explain clearly why I recommend an item. Hope it helps!"
"If a stroller isn't an option this does double duty as a carry on and to pull a child through large airports! Also a fun ride on toy when you get to your destination. Our grandparents don't have many toys so its nice to be able to bring something like this with us."
"This is a great book for kids with sensory issues. While my younger child is considered "typical" she has a host of sensory issues. This explains in simple terms the things that will happen and the noises that accompany them. Great SOCIAL STORY for children on the autism spectrum."
"This is a gorgeous book. The board book is very durable. Byron Barton has several good travel books - the clear brightly colored pictures are wonderful for children with limited vision like my older daughter."
"Another must have for long car rides when you get to your destination! We use this for Amanda's IPad (which she uses for Assistive Communication) as well as our IPhones. Nice that it has 2 USB ports!"
"My older daughter LOVES her IPad. She plays games on it, watches movies and is learning to use it to communicate. What she is NOT learning is not to drop it on the floor. This cover is worth every penny to protect an expensive piece of equipment!"
"We bought this "fidget" toy for my older daughter in an attempt to prevent her from chewing her shirt. It didn't work, but the rest of us have fun playing with it. It's tiny enough to take anywhere. Fits in a backpack or purse easily."
"We couldn't have gotten the younger child through Disney World without these! So many people asked where we got them. They come in a variety of colors including hot pink and camo. Great for any child for fireworks, concerts, etc."
"If the little one gets a new carry on I thought the older one should, too. We always seem to be juggling. This gives us the functionality of a backpack in a more compact shape and size. We aren't constantly bumping our knees into it when we push her. Easy to carry on board - external pockets(good for a drink) are super."
"Its just a few wipes and bandaids, but its everything you need for a minor cut or scrape all in one place. Well worth the $1.50 to have something you can tuck into your carry on and grab quickly if there is a boo-boo."
"I chose these over markers because they are eraseable. I like them better than crayons because they won't melt if you leave them in a hot car. However, they have sharp points and may not be suitable for all children."
