21 must-have travel accessories for toddlers

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.
