May 9, 2024 · #traveltoys

Travelling with kids can be a joyous adventure, but it also comes with its challenges, especially when it comes to keeping them entertained during long journeys or while waiting in airports or hotel rooms. Our collection of travel toys are designed to engage children and make their holiday experience more enjoyable for everyone involved. In this blog post, we’ll explore 10 of the best travel toys that are not only entertaining but also practical and easy to pack.

  1. Story Books: Choose a few favourite books alongside some new stories to read together.

  2. Travel-sized Board Games: Board games are a fantastic way to keep kids entertained during long flights or car rides. Many popular board games come in travel-sized versions, making them perfect for taking on holiday. Classics like chess, draughts, and Ludo are available in compact formats that are easy to pack and play on the go.

  3. Colouring Books: Colouring books are portable and mess-free and make great travel companions for creative kids. Look for books filled also with puzzles, mazes, and stickers to keep them occupied for hours. 

  4. Building Blocks: Plus Plus sets are portable block designed for open ended play as well as characters to build too. Whether your child is into spaceships, Vikings, Fairies or Dinosaurs there is a set that will capture their imagination.

  5. Sticker Books and Sticker Sets: Sticker books and sticker sets are a simple yet effective way to entertain kids during travel. Children can create scenes, decorate pages, or even make their own sticker stories. Look for reusable sticker sets that can be used multiple times without losing their stickiness, making them perfect for long journeys.

  6. Tablet: A tablet loaded with films and favourite TV shows is a lifesaver on long flights or road trips. You can preload your child’s favourite movies or download new ones before you leave home. Just don’t forget to pack headphones to keep the noise level down for fellow travellers (and the charger!)

  7. Travel-sized Musical Instruments: If your child loves music, consider bringing along travel-sized musical instruments like a ukulele, harmonica, or mini keyboard. Not only will they provide hours of entertainment, but they can also help foster a love of music and creativity.

  8. Miniature Playsets: Miniature playsets are compact versions of popular toys like dollhouses, farms, and figures. They come with small figures and accessories that can be easily packed and set up anywhere, providing endless imaginative play opportunities for kids on the go.

  9. Magic Water Colouring Books: Magic water painting books are a mess-free way for kids to paint and colour while traveling. Simply fill the included water pen with water, then watch as colours magically appear on the pages. Once the water dries, the colours disappear, so children can paint again and again without any cleanup required.

  10. Travel Diaries: Encourage children to document their adventures with a diary and include drawings, photos and written memories.  Even better why not include a Magic Secret Pen to keep secrets hidden from siblings!

So by packing a few of these entertaining and practical travel toys, you can ensure that your child stays happy and engaged throughout your holiday journey. Whether they’re drawing pictures, building Plus Plus creations, or journalling these travel toys are sure to make your family holiday just that little bit less stressful. So before you embark on your next adventure, be sure to stock up on some of the best travel toys for kids!
