Road Trips with Toddlers

A Listmania! list by Shelly Rivoli (Bay Area, CA)
The list author says: "If you're planning a road trip with a toddler, chances are you could use a little help (and possibly a magic wand to help expedite the drive). Here are some products that should help make the journey more enjoyable for everyone.

Safe journey,

Star Kids Snack and Play Travel Tray
1.  Star Kids Snack and Play Travel Tray by Star Kids
The list author says:
  "We like this tray because it's large enough to accommodate coloring books and drawing paper, and the extra-high edges help keep toys and crayons from escaping--even if the tray is at an angle (from the sloping car seat). The side pockets are helpful, but a small toddler may not be able to reach much in them. Since it's soft, you can roll or fold it to stuff beneath your stroller, too."
$19.99   Used & New from: $17.22

CNC-KE Taby Tray White
2.  CNC-KE Taby Tray White by Thermobaby
The list author says:
  "The Taby also offers a nice, wide surface with the advantage of a recessed cup holder--great if your car seat doesn't have one! The surface also wipes clean easily, making it ideal if your child will need to eat meals during the drive. It also works well for Play-doh as another drive-time diversion."
$25.11   Used & New from: $18.55

Munchkin Two Snack Catchers, Colors May Vary
3.  Munchkin Two Snack Catchers, Colors May Vary by Munchkin
The list author says:
  "No more free-range cheddar bunnies in the back seat of your car. These "traps" help keep cheerios, crackers, and other snacks contained, and sometimes help keep toddlers entertained as they dig for treasures inside."
$4.47   Used & New from: $2.99

Foogo by Thermos Leak-Proof SS 7 oz Sippy Cup with Handle in Blue
4.  Foogo by Thermos Leak-Proof SS 7 oz Sippy Cup with Handle in Blue by Thermos
The list author says:
  "Truly fantastic for travel. After battling "stinky sippies" in travel, loading up cups with ice cubes, and so on... I'm thrilled to find these. The insulated stainless cup is even sweatproof, so contents stay cool and the cup doesn't get hotel furniture or your daypack wet. Stainless steel interior also doesn't leach into liquids, even in heat."

5.  Booginhead SippiGrip - Blue by Sippi Grip

Aqua Doodle Mini Mats - Sesame Street
7.  Aqua Doodle Mini Mats - Sesame Street by Spin Master

  "Save these as a new novelty to bust out just as your child begins to tire of the scenery. Toddlers tend to love the feeling of using a "marking pen," but you'll love having nothing more than water making the designs."

8.  KIDZ DREAM Soy Smoothies, Orange Cream, 8-Ounce Drink Boxes (Pack of 27) by KIDZ DREAM
