10 great travel-gear items for traveling kids

There is a lot of wonderful travel gear out there, and every now and then I like to cruise the web, online stores, Pinterest, and Twitter for some products that look useful and interesting. Here are some of the gear I've found recently that looks perfect for traveling with kids.


1. Flyebaby Fly Baby Airplane Seat Child Comfort System
This product looks extremely useful if you will be flying with a baby. It attaches to the seatback in front of you and gives a place for your baby to rest comfortably. If my kids were still infants, I'd be looking at getting this for sure.


2. The Sit Seat Baby Travel Harness
According to One Step Ahead, this versatile harness can be used when your baby is in a chair, stroller, airplane seat, shopping cart, or you can use it to secure the baby to yourself, and keep them safely on your lap. The product looks great, and also easy to pack.



3. Snack and Play Travel Tray
This packable, portable tray is designed to fit on chairs and car seats. Definitely a practical solution, and something that would come in handy on long car trips, or just to be used for kids when you're out and about on vacation.


4. On-The-Go Booster Seat
This portable booster seat is inflatable, which makes it even easier to pack than a regular portable booster seat. We used a similar product when the kids were little, but this one definitely seems to be a step up: comfier, lighter, and easier to squash into a suitcase.


5. The Boba Air Baby Carrier
Mountain Mama reviewed this ultra-light, ultra-packable baby carrier on her site, and it sounds like a fantastic product for travel and outdoors adventures. It weighs only 0.7 lbs, or 0.3 kilos, and apparently folds up small enough to fit in a purse! Boba makes some very good carriers, so this sounds like a very good product.

6. driSuit Endurance iPhone Waterproof Protective Case
I don't have an iPhone, but I do know plenty of people do, and if you do, and if you're traveling, and if you're going to be poolside or on the beach a lot, then this might be a great product to try out. You can still use the touch-screen, and you can take pictures with your phone to a depth of 15 feet (4.5 metres).


7. Eclipse Solar Backpack
I'm a sucker for cool backpacks (I love them for hiking trips and I also use mine as hand-luggage on flights), and this one does look very cool. It has a thin, flexible solar panel that makes it possible for you to charge your electronic gadgets on the go.


8. Kid's Stay-Put Swim Shoes
I will be getting these shoes for my kids for next summer. They are made to be worn on the beach and in the water, to protect little feet from rocks and hot sand. The strap looks like it would make them a little easier to put on than the similar water-shoes my kids have used previously. Find them at Amazon, or buy directly from One Step Ahead.


9. Crayola MyPhones
Kid-sized headphones are a must-have on long flights with kids, at least in my opinion. It makes enjoying the on-board entertainment a lot easier for children, than if they have to struggle with headphones that are too big. These ones can be customized with stickers and markers. They also come with a handy carrying case.


10. Coleman Road Trip Beach Shade 
I love the beach and the sun, but sometimes you do need a bit of shade if it's really sunny and really hot: especially if you're there with a baby or toddler. This beach tent looks great and comes recommended by Stephanie at My Messmerized Life.
