Travel Toys For Cool Kids

I love family holidays and I love road trips. But how do you keep the kids entertained without having them ask that dreaded question every few minutes – “Are we there yet?”, or in the case of my one year old Annabelle "waaaaaaahhh!!" ... Try one of these cool travel toys that we found, and enjoy the miles without the moaning…

50 things to do on a car journey

For a brood that’s fond of word games, puzzles and quizzes, try this book: 50 Things To Do On A Car Journey. The durable cards come illustrated with a variety of activities that use everyday items or refer to things that you can see from a car window, $14.95.  Also comes in a version for little kids, also $14.95: 100 Things For Little Children To Do On A Journey.


For kids that like to draw, with parents who’d rather that the car seats stayed unmarked (I hear you!), get hold of an Aquadoodle Travel Doodle.  The water-filled pen means that there’s no mess – there’s not even any ink… There’s a few variations but they float at around the $20 mark: Aquadoodle Travel Doodle.

Leapster GS

Newly-available in Australia, this handheld educational gaming device comes with 2GB of memory, a huge range of games and great gaming quality.  But it’s a big buy, definitely a big Christmas present - Big W currently have the Leapster reduced to $124 & cartridges start at $30-$40. 

Happy road-tripping!
