Children love to draw, but why waste a notebook of paper or worry about them scribbling on the seats around them. The BoogieBoard LCD writing tablet was designed to get rid of the paper and waste. Using a pressure-sensitive surface, the stylus will draw anything that is applied. The more pressure you put on the surface, the thicker the colors will show up. With a touch of the button, everything can be erased.

People inside of an airplane or car probably don’t want to hear the music that you’re listening to. In order to drain out the sound, many companies have developed comfortable earbuds that offer crystal clear sounds. Compatible with any MP3 player device, these buds can come in many different colors and styles.

Airline iPhone Apps

Traveling to a new airport can be a scary experience. Where do you go? When is my plane arriving? To keep your family in the loop, you may want to consider these great airline apps:

  • FlightTrack iPhone app: This app allows you to check delays, find airport gates and look at maps in real-time. With a few different plans, FlightTrack takes the worry out of flying.
  • Gate Maps iPhone app: This app was designed to help those who never travel to airports. It will show the restaurants, shops and amenities inside of the airport.

Heading on a road trip or flight with kids and no entertainment is a recipe for disaster. While parents can often keep themselves entertained with a simple book or magazine, children will need a bag full of goods. Before you head on your next trip, highly consider some of the gadgets above to make your trip easier.

There are a lot of gadgets out there and apps that you can bring when you are traveling. One that I absolutely love is my iPad. With that the kids can read, play games, watch movies, and watch TV. A co-worker at Dish told me with the Dish Remote Access app and the Sling Adapter hooked up to my receiver the kids can watch all our subscription channels live anywhere we can get a 3G or Wi-Fi connection. The kids love being able to watch all their favorite shows and it is such a lifesaver.
