Road Tripping with Baby: The Toy & Entertainment Edition
We’ve been traveling quite a bit over the last few weeks. Road tripping with baby and his two siblings from one end of Ontario to the other, Michigan, and back again. Our road trips will be frequent during the summer months, so I’ve been experimenting with various tricks to keep the kids busy and happy during those long hauls.
Our family vehicle doesn’t have a DVD player in it. We actually opted out of one as it was a personal preference. I wanted our kids to be visually aware of their surroundings, to read, play, and entertain themselves without the need of electronic stimulation. Because of this, we’ve had to switch things up on a frequent basis as my kids are still quite young.
My son does well with cars and small toys, in fact he could entertain himself for hours with these colorful and entertaining play things. Here are 13 of our favorite picks for babies.
Bambi Clicker Pal
I’m a huge fan of these Clicker Pals from Disney Baby and Fisher-Price. Their little legs turn to and fro, and the joints make clicking sounds that are entertaining to tiny tots.
Finding Nemo Teether from Fisher-Price
Toys that clip on to car seats or strollers are great as you don’t have to worry about baby dropping or tossing them around. This mini mobile features Dory, Squirt, and Nemo that hang from a plastic mobile and make sounds when you pull on them. It doubles as a great teether too!
“Mickey Mouse at the Park” is a book that baby can read on their own. The soft pages are easy to turn, and the pages have teethers on the corners that relieve sore gums. Crinkle textures and squeaky sounds entertain.
101 Dalmatians Patch Clicker Pal from Fisher-Price
You can never have too many Clicker Pals! This one is very eye-catching with the black and white polka dots and patches. The clicking joints, textured feet, and rattle beads provide endless entertainment for discovering tots.
Mirror Stick Rattle
I just adore this glittery Disney Princess mirror rattle! The embroidery, glittery, and ribbon details will most definitely capture the attention of your baby girl.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Album
Do your kids love the Disney Junior show “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse”? This album features your favorite songs from the show, including “Hot Dog!” sang by They Might Be Giants – plus 16 other great tunes.
Finding Nemo Bead Rattle
The combination of soft plush and firm plastic makes for a great rattle. Baby can shake the colorful beads around and around with every move of their hand. The crinkle texture in the fins adds for even more interest.
Regal Key Set
Give your little princess the Keys to the Kingdom before you set off for your family travels. The combination of soft and hard plastic is excellent for teething babies.
Dumbo Rollin' Tunes Toy from Fisher-Price
The great thing about this rolling musical toy from Fisher-Price is that it works well in both the car and the cottage, resort, or hotel. As they play and roll Dumbo around, crawling tots can enjoy tunes and musical sounds.
Minnie Mouse Chime
Hook Minnie onto your baby’s car seat or stroller and let the jingle jangle begin. This fun toy makes musical chime sounds when moved and looks as pretty as can be!
Finding Nemo Teether from Fisher-Price
Another clip-on toy! This teether features Nemo and friends on a ring that is perfect for little hands.
Squirt Clicker Pal
Yes, I really do love those Clicker Pals (my son has two!). This is actually one of my son’s favorite ones, and I think it has something to do with Squirt’s flat feet (they are great for chewing on!).
Go to Sleep Little One...
There’s a time for play, and then there’s a time for rest. Sometimes the lull of your vehicle isn’t enough, which is why I’m a fan of Disney Baby’s Lullaby CD. It calms, relaxes, and works like magic when trying to put your baby to sleep in a vehicle.
