1. mifold (or hifold)
Traveling with kids, though fun, requires a LOT of stuff. Further, if you have to travel with car seats or booster seats, the luggage doubles and triples quickly. The mifold is the perfect gift for kids, families, and parents who love to travel!

The mifold is a convenient grab and go booster seat that is small enough to fit into a glovebox and your child’s carry on backpack. You can even use it to replace your booster seat at home!

Children don’t want to struggle with sticky zippers, faulty stitching, or difficult clips. Try one of these quality backpacks that our family loves. Quality backpacks make travel with kids so much easier and a versatile gift!

6. Easy to pack and pull luggage.
Running through terminals with kids can be exhausting. Try one of these ride on carry-ons,
Kiddietotes makes these adorable kids luggage with harnesses!
One of my favorite baby brands: Mountain Buggy, makes these ride on seats for your carry on.
Or, these spin wheel bags from American Tourister are easy to pull for young children to carry their own stuff!
7. Packable headphones
I love cute headphones for road trips.
But for trips where space is limited, and headphones are bound to be crushed, try these foldable kid-safe headphones. I like these for my young children because they are durable, easy to use, and don’t hurt their ears like earbuds.
We also have a pair of this kind of foldable headphones that can actually be attached to another set of so your kids can share a device.
8. Screen time.
Looking for hours of entertainment for that trans-atlantic flight, long layover, or road trip? Family travel isn’t the time to give up movies and tv when you are traveling with small children. Try one of these as the ultimate gift for kids who travel:
Nintendo Switch Lite
Amazon Fire Tablet
Staying at an international airbnb?
Are you tired of the kids constantly touching the screens?
Try this ingenious projector that also has wifi connection and internal memory. Your kids can watch cartoons and movies altogether without needing to connect to a television, an international charger, or even a screen.
Traveling means carrying fewer toys, and when mom and dad need a break, these projectors are great gifts for families and kids who love to travel.
My kids love to see where we are going, where we have been, and where we hope to eventually go. A globe, especially an interactive globe, or a map of the world are a great way to teach about geography and track where they have been.
11. Travel Tracker
Our family has been on the hunt for months for a great way to visually display our travels for our children. Then we found these.
Enjoy the wood is a Ukranian based family operated company that makes puzzle-like wall art to not only make a beautiful display but to help teach your children about the rest of the world.
We have the Multicolored large display with flag pushpins.
However, they make these World Maps in mulitple styles, colors, and sizes. They even have lighted LED maps that would make GREAT night lights!
Check them out here!
Here are some other travel trackers for kids!
My kids are always asking to take pictures with my phone. Now they are getting old enough to take their own pictures. Try one of these simple durable cameras or even a simple digital camera so that they can take pictures of some of their favorite travel memories.
13. GPS Watch
When traveling with our three children, it gives us great peace of mind to have a travel watch on their person.
We can always ping their locations, communicate with them, and even entertain them with their Gizmo Watches from Verizon.
However, we have also had experience with these watches from Amazon that offer many of the same features and even more peace-of-mind because of the range on them.
These watches also feature video calling.
Our kids love tracking their steps, their daily to-do lists, and even their travels on their watch.
And…we love that even if we get separated, we can always keep in contact with our small children.
These watches do require a monthly plan, so be prepared to also have monthly charges. For our family, the monthly charge is worth the peace-of-mind.
14. Muzzy Subscription
Traveling abroad? Do you know the language? Want your kids to be able to say at least some basic words and phrases? Try Muzzy. This adorable BBC created language show is available in multiple languages.
Help them say please, thank you, colors, or basic questions in multiple languages with a subscription to Muzzy.
