This week, I've decided to do a little surfing and see what interesting products I could come up with.

My favorite product for little kids that I came across was the Snack and Play Travel Tray (pictured on the left.)  We've used fold up tables before in the car (like the one on the right,) but they are tricky to stow and to put up around the kids, especially when you have your car fully packed for a trip.

The Snack and Play Travel Tray is soft and has mesh pockets down the side.  I'm not sure that it will solve my son throwing things on the floor, but it would keep them from rolling away.  You can find them at www.familytravelgear.com.

Another product that caught my attention was the "Best Travel Mug for Kids" advertised by Real Simple.

Travel Mug for Kids
It has little holes that are adjustable in size all around the top, so by twisting the top, more or less liquid can come out.  Now, I don't know, but it seems to me that this is a recipe for disaster - more holes means more places to spill from!  What happens when this baby is dropped and lands upside down?  Maybe you get a vacuum effect and the liquid stays inside - but I'm not betting on it!  Sorry, but my kids still get to have sippy cups in the car!

Another option when the kids get a little older, is to play audio books.  Books on tape has a good selection on both tape and CD.  I wonder when they're going to branch out to mp3's?

Books on Tape

Real Simple recommended creating a Kids Travel kit, including a tape recorder so that kids could make a running commentary of the trip.  They recommended a product by Sony that is small enough to fit kids hands.

I love jewelry ogzanirer. During the boating season, we spend every weekend on our boat, cruising the Chesapeake Bay. The worst part of the perfect weekend to predict which measures will be up and clothes (I know the hard life , e) This is the most important. I keep all my costume jewelry in excellent ogzanirer and take your entire collection with me all weekend, and always so happy whatever the occasion. Organised by return so that I can fit it in my weekend bag and then I can hang the hanger on the ogzanirer in my closet. My friend does a lot of jewelry and I have a huge collection of her work. Individual pockets provide excellent protection against crushing and maintains the anti-excess property of the fabric supports it all shiny and clean. I had previously had any vinyl ogzanirer and no zipper. All jewelry fell out, no matter how carefully I pack. This is a zipped up tight and secure.I bought one for a friend and I will take my daughter-in-law for Christmas. That translates to my suggestion to buy this product ..
