The great thing about this game is that it’s compact, making it the perfect size for travel. Players are challenged to make as many three letter words as they can from the 5 letters on the screen. The more they find, the more points they score. There are different levels, from easy to pro, and kids can play by themselves or with others. Fun and educational at the same time!
These travel books are the best of both worlds: learning and travel. This is a book shaped box contains 26 different cards, and children use the magnetic tiles to learn to spell words. Everything has a special compartment so clean up is minimal. Perfect for long trips!
After experimenting with many different headphones, we finally found ones our kids love. These will obviously stay on their head and allow them to listen to movies and games while traveling without disturbing anyone around them.
What kid wouldn’t love to roll their Star Wars luggage through the airport? This 21″ hard case spinner from American Tourister comes as R2-D2, Darth Vader, and a Storm Trooper. The hard part will be deciding which one to choose!

Lonely Planet publishes this fun, Not for Parents series (other titles include: London, New York City, and others). From Amazon: It is the real, inside story about one of the world’s most exciting countries – the United States of America. In this book you’ll hear fascinating tales about the Wild West, cockroach races, a massive canyon and weddings in Vegas. Check out cool stories about candy bars and movie stars, beauty queens and blue jeans. You’ll find astronauts, gangsters, pilgrims and some amazingly heroic dogs. Definitely fun for kids.
One of my favorite gifts this season, this is a partnership between Target and UNICEF, with Target donating $10 for every Power Band sold. Kids wear the Power Band and with the help of the app, go on missions and learn about cultures around the world. The kids earn points for every step they take and those points convert into funding by sponsors. Love this! (available for pre-order now, release date 11/29/15)
