Travelling with children can be challenging but these travel accessories will make it easier.
Packing for your little one to take a big trip is no mean feat.
On top of all the standard necessities (clothes, nappies, food etc.) you need to pack a wealth of entertainment to keep stir-crazy kids at bay and sort out travel extras like luggage and easy ways to carry those standard items around without hassle.
Sounds overwhelming? It doesn’t have to be. We’ve crafted the ultimate list of toddler accessories to bring on your big trip so the whole family can stay stress-free all holiday long.
Luggage and packing solutions
Trips are more fun when there’s cute and colourful luggage to pull around! The Trunki is ideal for flights as it’s small enough to be a cabin bag and doubles as a ride-and-pull toy at the airport.
Child carriers and transporters
If you don’t feel the need to bring a stroller or car booster seat in your luggage then these travel alternatives might help your toddler get around safely without them.
We don’t need to tell you that entertainment is key to a tantrum-free toddler. These options are quiet and airplane-friendly, and won’t take up too much space.
From portable bottle-drying racks to travel bibs, these will make feeding your toddler that much easier while on the road.
If your toddler is still learning how to use the potty, these nifty gadgets can keep them on track.
Portable beds and comforting blankets for little ones can be a godsend, especially when the free hotel cot is too small and the hotel bed is too big.
Colourful travel accessories
Toddlers love colour and animal motifs. Make sure they have enough stimulation while on holiday with bright and fun luggage tags, laundry bags and more.
