mifold Booster Seat

Keeping kids safe while traveling is always a priority. One way we can do that is by providing kids with a car seat. Since car seats are so big and bulky, this can make traveling difficult. Thanks to the mifold booster seat, we can keep kids safe without the hassle of lugging around a heavy car seat. This seat fits kids over the age of 4. It folds up into a handheld-sized rectangle that makes it easy to fit inside of a bag, purse, and even some back pockets! There are no clunky buckles to secure, just expand, sit, click, and go.

These adorable toy turtles have a purpose... to teach kids about colors, shapes, and numbers. There are two colors of each. One is larger, and the other baby turtle fits inside of the larger turtle's shell. Each big turtle has a number of shapes, and the smaller turtle has the number of shapes displayed on the big turtle written on its shell. And thanks to the container with the twist on lid, these colorful turtles can come in handy while traveling. A great way to keep kids busy while traveling.

Making sure baby is comfortable while traveling is so important. Use this to help you take care of the baby when he gets fussy. All you need to do is twist the knob to pick the volume and the Baby Shusher gives off a shushing sound. This sound comforts baby and puts him to sleep. It works like magic and can help comfort baby while traveling, or any other time baby gets upset.

When you reach your destination, have a little fun by playing a game of The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel. The goal of the game is to fill up your tree stump with all of the colors of the acorns. Use Snacky Squirrel to pick up the acorns and place them on the trunk. This is a great way to practice fine motor skills, taking turns, and recognizing colors. It's also a lot of fun to play.

By having a few items on hand, we can avoid catastrophes while traveling with kids. All of these ideas will keep your kiddos busy and engaged.
