If you’ve got kids, you know that road trips can be rough, but they are also fun! I remember taking a road trip to Virginia Beach when I was about 12 or 13. We had a Mazda station wagon with no air conditioning. It wasn’t so bad when the car was moving. But put 3 little girls and 2 parents in a 2 hour long traffic jam, and you’ve got problems! Isn’t it funny how these memories stick with us? Of course, I know once we got to the beach we had fun, but that traffic jam sure made an impression.
Times are so different now with all of the technology available to kids for road trips, but they’re still going to get bored. Plus,while some screen time is okay, you don’t want them to have hours and hours of it time do you? I’ve made up a list of some must-haves when you’re road tripping with your kids. Some of the items are for them, and some are for you! Check them out and let me know what you think.
mifold Booster Seat
If you’ve got kids that are out of the car seat stage, but they’re still not big enough to sit without a booster, you’ve got to check out mifold. It is 10x smaller than a regular booster seat, but it is just as safe. It is portable, so your child can fit it in his backpack or you can carry it in your purse. I wish they had had this when my kids were little! It would have been so much easier to switch car seats out from car to car!
mifold is more than 10x smaller than a regular booster seat, and just as safe. It has been fully safety tested in testing facilities around the world. It is the most advanced, compact and portable booster seat ever invented. It is completely different to all other car seats. The lap belt is designed to be low on the hips and contacting the top of the thighs, which has been shown to be a very safe and effective positioning.
There are still at least 20% of journeys where children do not have a car seat; in carpools, with grandparents or other relatives, in taxis, in rental cars, and more. With mifold there is no more excuse since it is so compact and portable. A child can easily keep one with them all the time and drivers can keep a spare without cluttering their car. A child can be safe no matter whose car they are in.
