Family Travel Woes Solved: SeatPets

If you’ve ever traveled with a toddler, you know that the miles are seemingly endless, no matter what accommodations you make—such as breaking the trip into two days or traveling overnight. Even an hour or two can transform your car into a torture chamber!

Here are some helpful ideas to pass the time and maybe save a bit of sanity:

  • SeatPets: What child hasn’t complained at some point about being bothered by the seatbelt or discomfort with sitting in an appropriate and safe position? Enter SeatPets, a snuggly friend that attaches to the seatbelt, making it fun and comfortable.seatpet_7_2013
  • Fast Food Toys: Nope, we don’t mean eat it all the way! But, most families do have to use the dreaded drive through window to manage busy schedules. You know all those toys that they give out, the ones that provide 5 minutes of fun only to be discarded? Save them in a container and your youngsters will be surprised and happy when you whip them out during a long stretch of highway.
  • Car Games: Take a little browse online and you’re sure to come up with all kinds of games that you can play in the car. Some are free and others are cheap, such as car bingo, the alphabet game, and many others.

Another tip from family travelers is to set an alarm to go off every hour and hand out a new activity or prize. This can be a great carrot to dangle out there and promote patience and good behavior. But just be sure to get the SeatPets—let’s face it, everybody’s hoping the little ones will just take a nap!
