Best Travel Toys


What do you need when traveling with tots? Patience, tricks and distractions. The more of the tricks and distractions, the less patience required. We love the Trunki from Melissa & Doug. Part suitcase, part riding toy, this clever contraption might just save you the next time you spot a 10-hour flight delay.

The Trunki is designed as a carry-on suitcase. A absolute must if you want your kids to buy into the concept that travel is fun! Pack with your kiddos favorite toys and head out. But wait there's more! This is where we sound like a really good infomercial. You tot can hop on the Trunki and ride it like a wheeled toy. Features include a tow strap, carry handles, secure catches, integrated wheels and stabilizers to prevent toppling over. Holds up to 100 lbs. Buy on Amazon $39.99.

Win it! One lucky mom is going to get a Trunki from Melissa & Doug. To enter to win, head to Melissa & Doug here and tell which is your favorite style. Then come back and leave a comment. This is the first in our 4-part set of travel contests from Melissa & Doug!
