If you are anything like us, you love to travel.  Near, far- anything for something new and exciting, or just a change of scenery. There is so much to see and do- and nothing like summertime to get the blood moving and one excited for travel.  However- just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean that travel has to, not by any means.  Fall travel is just as amazing- and lacks that sticky summertime heat as well, LOL.  Maybe less beach time, but apple picking and fall foliage is not to be missed.  Have you been to upstate NY or Vermont in the fall?  Amazing.  Don’t put your suitcases away yet- summer is still here, and fall leaves a lot to do as well.

P1010843While you are traveling, it’s important to keep the kids safe and entertained.  You will need snacks, drinks, toys and games to entertain them, and of course safe car seats and booster seats, depending on age and weight. When my son was smaller, I always kept a plastic potty and wipes (as well as Clorox wipes for the potty) easily available in the trunk- because potty emergencies were not to be trifled with.

My son is a big boy- while he’s only 7, he has outgrown most booster seats in both height and weight. We just got him his very first backless booster seat from Safety 1st, since the one he has is at it’s absolute max and can’t “grow” any larger- and it’s the biggest one on the market. It’s super easy to use- and it has the added bonus of having storage underneath the seat (as well as the must-have cup holders).

P1010842Here is a bit more information on the carseat-

“Take fun along for the ride with the Safety 1st Store ’n Go Backless Booster. This belt-positioning booster seat is designed for children from 40-100 pounds and features a pull out storage drawer that keeps kid’s gear easy-to-reach while they remain safely buckled into the seat. The drawer has a kid-friendly latch that keeps it closed once shut, but is easily opened while your child remains sitting securely in the seat. There’s also a built-in cup holder on one side and additional storage on the other, making it easy to keep a drink and snack close by during the ride.”

  • Belt-positioning booster: 40-100 pounds and 43-57″
  • Keeps kid’s gear easy to reach during the ride
  • Kid-friendly latch keeps drawer shut
  • Includes seatbelt positioning strap for a customized fit
  • Built-in cup holder and additional storage on sides of seat
  • Meets or exceeds Federal and ASTM Safety Standards

pic8Anyone who spends a long time in the car knows how annoying it is to have the sun in your eyes.  Not only is it bothersome, but also it’s not great for your skin or eyes.  Protect your little ones with cute window sun shades, also known as sun screens.  Some have suction cups that stick to windows, but those (just like the ones on your GPS unit) never stay “stuck on” for long, do they?  These cuties from Safety 1st are more durable- they glide right onto the window like a wall decal or bumper sticker- and yes, they are removable with no residue. Once you remove them, they never stick again quite right, so put it where you want it to go the first time.  The only drawback is that you can no longer roll down the kiddo’s window- but with small kids, you know you can’t really do that much anyway, or they will toss their toys out while you are driving, yeah?  Ha. You can open it a bit at the top as long as you position it right.  I say it’s the best of both worlds, and it’s what we have done more then 90% of the time since my son was born.

“Help protect your children from the sun’s harmful rays all year round with the Disney/Pixar Deluxe Sunscreen by Safety 1st. You’ll love the protection and they’ll love seeing Lighting McQueen up on the car window!”

  • Blocks the glare, not the view
    • Up to 85% UVA/UVB rays
  • Easy suction cup attachment
  • 16 3/4 inches wide by 13 inches high

P1010846My son, tall as he is, sometimes has a hard time with hotel beds- they can be very high and hard for him to get onto.  When he was little, he also had a hard time reaching the sinks.  At home, this was not a problem, but when were were out and about…..this was most troublesome at night, when he had to use the bathroom.  He would have to wake me up to help him (at least) back into the bed, and with the sink.  An easy remedy is to bring a small, light step stool with you.  The child can use it for the bed, and take it with them to the bathroom if they need to as well.  I love this Safety 1st stool- it also curves to the potty should you be training, and it has storage space inside (for extra diapers, underpants, and those ever-necessary baby wipes.)  It is also small, sturdy, and lightweight, so quite easy to travel with.

“Give your child a leg up with the Stash and Step Stool by Safety 1st. Specially designed to curve around the toilet, it’s more practical than a standard rectangular stool and  helpful when your child is potty training.”

  • Stool curves around toilet
  • Non-slip rubber feet
  • Lid comes off to reveal storage

  37. I would love to give this to my son. He’s old enough to want to do big boy things, but he is still really little in stature, so the stool in particular would be a big help.

  38. I would give this prize to my good friends whose amazing little boy is growing so fast. He is physically growing but also learning, inquiring, doing. I know they would all be appreciative and definitely would use everything.

  41. Id love one for my son, Our state recommends 4’9 and under 100lbs to be in a booster seat. My son is 9 but only about 65 pounds and 4’4 so he will need one for a bit longer and his has taken a beating (not literally, its just been used for a few years and the cover is coming off). This is a great idea and not too babyish
