When you’re travelling with kids, packing the right gear
makes any trip a lot smoother. Here are gear suggestions
to help make your next family vacation fun.

MIFOLD GRAB-AND-GO BOOSTER SEAT
Travelling with bulky car seats is annoying, but now
there’s a booster seat that folds up small enough
to fit in your purse or your kid’s backpack – and
conforms to all Canadian safety regulations. The
mifold Grab-and-Go Booster Seat is suitable for kids
age four to 12-years-old. It’s easy to use, which has
led to rave reviews from parents.
KINDLE PAPERWHITE E-READER
Preteens and teens will love the Kindle Paperwhite E-reader
loaded with their favourite books. Light, compact, and easy
to read everywhere from the dim-light on a night flight to the
brightest day on a tropical beach, this is a fab product. If they
finish their book mid-vacation, all they need to do is connect
to Wi-Fi to download another one. This is the best kind of
screen-time, and you don’t need to feel even remotely guilty
about them staring at it for hours.
Sleeping on planes is tough for little ones, but the
JetKids BedBox is a ride-on suitcase that folds out into
a leg-rest and mattress that allows kids up to (approx.)
age seven to stretch out and sleep on pretty much any
plane. Open up the case and you’re giving your child a
nest-like base for that long-haul flight – with any luck
they’ll sleep all the way to your destination.
