Top Travel Toys For Tots

It’s no secret that we love to travel, but we want to travel light whilst keeping the kids entertained, so here are our top 5 must-have holiday toys for under 3’s.

Things to consider…

Ultimately, when deciding on what to pack, there are 4 basic things to think about.

  1. Size – is it difficult to pack or carry?
  2. Weight – will it be too heavy for your luggage?
  3. Play Time – how long will it keep your little ones entertained?
  4. Batteries required – will you need to take extras or declare your batteries at the airport?

The items we swear by tick all of the boxes! Read on for our tried-and-tested recommendations. Please note, this article contains some affiliate links for your convenience.
