      products for travel with babies, toddlers, and little kids


Star Kids Snack & Play Travel Tray

Why Shelly recommends it:

We like this tray because it's large enough to accommodate coloring books and drawing paper, and the extra-high edges help keep toys and crayons from escaping--even if the tray is at an angle (from the sloping car seat). The side pockets are helpful, but a small toddler may not be able to reach much in them. Since it's soft, you can roll or fold it to stuff beneath your stroller, too hands free for the luggage cart, your child's stroller, too.

Brica Fold 'n Go Booster

Why Shelly recommends it:

I have never seen a dining booster fold this flat. The front and back of the base cleverly fold underneath and the back folds down, leaving the whole seat no more than 1" thick. Add to that: It's as light as your socks! Very easy to travel with in daypack or diaper bag, and slips under the stroller with ease.

Taby Tray

Why Shelly recommends it:

While on the road or on the airplane, car seats often have to serve double duty when dinner time rolls around. This tray helps keep meals, snacks, and cups within easy reach, and can also be helpful for reading, coloring, and other activities during long flights. It will NOT work on car seats with armrests that slope downward or boosters with chest protector shields. It WILL work with nearly all car seats with regular armrests or overhead shields (when shield is lowered in front of the child), and with booster seats that have normal armrests or no armrests. Meets safety requirements for use in moving car. 19"L x 15.5"W.

Inglesina fast hook-on dining chair for toddlersInglesina Fast Travel Chair

Why Shelly recommends it:

The Inglesina Fast Deluxe is another very lightweight option, but it features a higher back with some padding for comfort, and it fits thicker tables--up to 3.5" thick. Includes removable washable padding and a three-point safety harness. For children up to 37 lbs. Folds to 14" x 17" x 4". Weighs 4 lbs.

Find it online at:   Amazon.com

Tip: Hook-on chairs should not be used with glass tabletops, tablecloths, or on table extension leaves.

Regalo Easy Diner Hook-On Travel High Chair

Why Shelly recommends it:

The Easy Diner gets around a wide variety of table ledges (or "skirts") that can be troublesome with many other models of hook-on travel high chairs, and it provides padding from top to bottom for supreme comfort. This hook-on chair also has a higher weight limit than most others (not counting the Me Too), ensuring you will get your money's worth from longer use. What's more, it offers a 5-point safety harness that converts to a 3-point for the older child. Babies may begin using once they can sit up unassisted, up to 37 lbs. Folds flat for travel with its own carrying case. Weighs 7 lbs. 

Find it online at:   Amazon.com  

Tip: Hook-on chairs should not be used with glass tabletops, tablecloths, or on table extension leaves.

The First Years On the Go Portable Booster

Why Shelly recommends it:

It's a truly travel-friendly "booster." The On the Go packs down to only 2" thick, then self-inflates to give a 4" boost to hungry kids on the go (a great alternative to "making due" by dining with your child on your lap). Straps securely to most restaurant chairs with adjustable seat and back straps. Three-point safety harness. Recommended for 12 months to 36 months. Weighs 2 lbs.
