best travel accessories for kids

Sol Republic headphones:

Have a kid who spend his back seat time on Netflix or watching a downloaded movie? Sometimes, those little earbuds just won’t cut it. Our movie-loving kids love Sol Republic Tracks HD On-Ear Headphones. The best part for parents: Tracks (both the HD and standard models) are nearly indestructible. Twist them, turn them, step on them…they’re solid. And the colors can be switched out for a new look. Pick up a pair for the stocking at Amazon for under $100.

If you’re looking for something less bulky (and more affordable) than Tracks, check out Sol Republic JAX In-Ear Headphones . At only $27 on Amazon, JAX include a three-button mic and music control, and superior sound quality to standard ear buds.

Kidz Gear Wired Headphones:

For younger kids, an on-ear headphone that won’t break the bank is crucial. Not only will Kidz Gear headphones stay on little heads (no more sliding off!), they come with sound reduction technology, so kids’ music won’t blow their ears out. Kids won’t be able to turn up the volume to the max (or rather, ‘max’ is a relative term) and they’ll still feel like one of the big kids. Pick up Kidz Gear Wired Headphones on Amazon for just over $20.

SOL Republic Punk:

This cute little wireless bluetooth speaker packs a big punch. We use it in the car to ensure everyone can hear the movie streaming on the iPad, or to listen to a podcast or audio book as a family. It’s great in tents, yurts, or hotel rooms, too. The Punk connects wirelessly, and gets an eight-hour battery life. It comes with a USB cable for re-charging, which can also be used to connect by wire. Use it with any smartphone, tablet, or MP3 player, and rest assured it’s up for anything: it’s water, shock, and dust resistant. Pick up the SOL REPUBLIC PUNK Wireless Bluetooth Speaker  for $69.

Bruton Power Knife adaptor:

I know it sounds like something that should be out of the hands of children, but the Brunton Power Knife only looks like a Swiss Army Knife. In fact, it’s a multi-tool of a different sort, with adaptors to charge just about anything. If your kids’ favorite travel accessory is their phone, tablet, or both, you need this in your purse or in the car. We pair it with our Brunton power cube to charge anything and everything on the go.

RAVPower portable power:

Don’t need multiple adaptors, but still want a ready-made power source to charge devices on the go? The RAVPower is the fastest charger we’ve found in years of searching. It can charge an iPhone 6 six times. Plus, it’s under $30, so if it falls between the seats of the car and is missing for a few days, no one will get grounded.
