Family travels and road trips often mean long hours and moments worrying how to entertain little ones. In addition to these worries, ensuring kids have their beloved stuffed animal or toy at all times can add more stress to a road trip. And what if the kid loses that beloved stuffed toy along the road? The aftermath can seem unfathomable, from stopping on the highway to search for the toy to calming an upset child.
For road trip-specific toys, bring along one (or several) Riderz. Designed to ride in cupholders in vehicles and on items like strollers, kids can have their fluffy buddy with them every step of the way. The shape allows them to fit comfortably in car cupholders and on strollers to prevent them from falling under seats or on the ground and getting lost altogether. These buddies even fit in shopping carts and water bottle backpack pockets.
Riderz feature a weighted bean filling for stability, allowing them to stand up in a cupholder or on any flat surface. The upper body is soft for cuddles and hugs. Kids can choose from eight animal designs: Georgia the Giraffe, Ellie the Elephant, Briana the Bunny, Tyler the Tiger, Dakota the Dolphin, Leo the Lion, Dave the firefighter Dalmatian and Billie the Bear.
The animals measure about 9 inches tall and weigh 8 ounces. Each animal includes a mesh pocket on its back to hold a small snack, toy or special note. Once kids pick their favorite Riderz, they can learn about the character’s backstory on social media and online.
Riderz are available here for $14.95–19.95.

The western Canadian province of British Columbia is known for its skiing and winter sports, with Whistler Blackcomb often named one of North America’s top ski destinations. But British Columbia has more places to ski and play in the snow, family-friendly resorts with budget-friendly prices, and up to 400 inches of powder snow. An exchange rate of 75 cents to the dollar is an added incentive for American family travelers to travel north for a vacation.
