Travel Tips

Family travel doesn’t have to be stressful. According to Dan Kaiser, vice president of operations, Kidco., “When you have lightweight and easy to use gear for your little ones, it makes the experience that much more enjoyable for everyone.”


Here is some infant- and kid-friendly travel gear to help make travel a breeze:


PeaPod Prestige

As a new addition to the popular PeaPod line of children’s travel beds, PeaPod Prestige is recommended for children 1–4 years old. It automatically pops open for use and quickly folds up to store in its own carrying bag. Other great features include full mesh sidewalls for visibility, air flow and blocking insects; sun shades that roll up and store with a quick-lock magnet; and sewn-in toy loops to create an instant activity center with your child’s favorite toys.


GoPod Travel Activity Seat

Parents love the GoPod Travel Activity Seat when taking a break on hikes, enjoying time by a campfire, keeping toddlers happy and keeping an eye on little ones when preparing meals. The GoPod is only 7 pounds and easy to carry around. The attached floor pad keeps the baby’s feet on a clean surface, while four adjustable height legs allow the seat to grow with the baby. There is also a snack and drink holder and five nylon hoops to attach your baby’s favorite toys.


PeaPod Camp

The lightweight indoor/outdoor PeaPod Camp is a travel bed that can be used as an alternative to a travel crib. The PeaPod Camp is a lightweight and foldable tent recommended for children 1–6 years old. It can be easily set up for nap time or playtime in a shady enclosed spot.
