Summer Holidays Travel Toys
That time of year where schools are out for the summer is well and truly upon us. The kids are off for the summer and the weather has perked up, which often means that a family holiday is most likely on the cards. The best travel toys can make the difference between a smooth family holiday and a long journey you’d rather forget. So how to prepare for a great flight and holiday? Experience has taught us to bring toys that:
1. Have few (or no) extra pieces. We want the time spent playing not searching for little pieces on the dirty airplane floor.
2. Pack easily and don’t take up too much room
3. Will hold attention and are reusable (for the flight and some dinners out on holidays
Here are 3 of our best-suited travel toys:

The pens on these magic pads are filled with water, these are perfect for mess-free fun and are even better because they’re reusable!
