Fun Travel Items for kids
For educational journeys
Your child will have so much fun with the games and activities that she won't even realize how much she's learning! Choose from current titles, such as Seattle, New York, London and Alaska, and upcoming destinations, such as Paris, Amsterdam, Athens and Hawaii. (CoopersPack.com, $13)
For forgetful travelers
While juggling tickets, luggage and family all at once, it's so easy for something to become lost or misplaced. Keep track of those frequently missing items — a diaper bag, a child's jacket or your teen's cell phone — with a new app.
Wallet TrackR from Phone Halo is a durable wireless device that you can attach to your child's "whatever." Via the Track® app, you can monitor the location of those oft-disappearing items. An alert prevents you from leaving behind your belongings, your phone… or even your child! (WalletTrackR.com, $30 and up)
what are some fun items to bring on a plane while traveling? | Yahoo Answers
I never fly without a deck of cards, because it's cheap and easy entertainment, especially if you're flying with a friend. If alone, you could easily play solitaire and a bunch of other games to keep you occupied.
A Rubik's cube has also worked for me too.
