Road Trip Toys


Kids! Get in the car, we're going on a road trip! Are you dreading this adventure are feeling all Clark Griswald about it? Probably depends on how you've got the car outfitted. We're not signing on for limitless DVD's--instead we like to mix in old-school games such as the classic license plate game. To keep things interactive and colorful, we recommend this toy from Melissa & Doug. The License Plate Game ($19.99) is so clever--all the little pieces are attached (yay! nothing to lose in the car seats).

This slightly educational game might just keep the kids from yelling, "Clay is touching me!" at unbelievable volume. We're not saying you'll get to Yellowstone without incident, but it'll keep the tykes busy for a least an exit or two on I95.


Win it! One lucky mom is going to get a License Plate Game from Melissa & Doug. To enter to win, head toMelissa & Doug here and tell which travel toy you need to survive the summer. Then come back and leave a comment. This is the second in our 4-part set of travel contests from Melissa & Doug! Check out the Trunki contest here.
