Family Bag

The key to family travel is not only having a “go with the flow attitude” but being prepared. Here are some must-have travel gadgets to make your life easier on the go.

Baby on Board
It’s well-known that airports and planes are petri dishes of germs. Now you can keep the pacifiers clean with the bbluv Portable UV Sterilizer.

Tune in and Tune out
Sometimes we all need to tune out on the plane or a long car ride. These CozyPhone headphones are a perfect fit every time (no sliding off here) and comfortable as well. You’ll love that they are washable and easy to pack, plus limited volume to protect the little one’s hearing.

Whatever happens, don’t lose power!
The iPad and other technological gadgets are great for passing the time while waiting in airports and flying. Make sure you have power from takeoff to landing with the Anker PowerCore Mini, a lipstick-size charger that fits easily in your handbag.

Buckle up your iPad
Have peace of mind when your little one drops his or her digital “baby sitter” with this foolproof bumper cover, the HDE Shock Proof iPad Case for Kids. No amount of kid turbulence can destroy it.

Capture memories together
Children want to do what grownups do including taking vacation pictures. Many parents shudder each time they hand over their delicate smartphone to the young ones to snap a pic. The Fujifilm Instax Mini is easy to use and almost unbreakable.
