Traveling with kids can be an adventure. It also can be challenging. Whether you’re planning a day-trip, road-trip, cruise, or cross-country flight, these nine gifts will help keep them busy (which means a better traveling experience for all).

The Fun Equation

The fun, fast-paced numerical tile game from Möbi helps kids learn and apply basic math skills. It packs away in an adorable blue whale bag, and it’s ready to play on any flat surface. Not a bad way for adults to keep their mental math skills sharp, either.

The Write Way to Keep Busy

Keep little ones busy with this magnetic writing toy from Magnatab. A magnetic stylus pulls beads up to create solid lines. Kids writing their first letters will get helpful up, down, and sideways instructions via easy-to-follow arrows. Everything erases with the tip of a finger and packs away neatly for the next trip.

King (Me) of the Road

Next time you’re on a long trek, teach them the classic games. Jump into checkers, chess, or backgammon. There’s no need for a thick heavy board. When you want to play on the go, Sondergut makes beautiful, lightweight travel boards that you can roll up and take anywhere.

An Educational App That’s Easy as 1-2-3

Marbotic uses wooden letters and numbers that look like traditional toys. But these pieces are more than classic—they’re connected. Early learners develop cognitive skills using classic-looking wooden letters and numbers that actually control on-screen play. It’s designed to help kids learn at their own speed with cheerful creatures to encourage them on.

Lay Out the Road on the Road

Printed to look like a road, PlayTape Classic Road is a roll of removable tape that is perfect for playing with toy and model cars. PlayTape is a fast, fun way to lay down instant roads anywhere for creative play.
