Tipful Thursday

Today’s Tipful Thursday topic is, favorite car toy. What is a must have toy for your little one in the car that makes the trip a little easier?

It’s important to Rob and I that P get use to riding in the car so that we can travel anywhere we want while he is still young. The best way I know to do that is get him in the car everyday, even if it is a short trip. It’s still a little hard to drive around with P by myself but certainly not impossible. We have had our fair share of emergency stops along the highway to reinsert the paci or for a top off. When it is the three of us driving, Rob or I will sit in the back to make things a little easier.

I can’t imagine what goes through a two month olds mind, but a few weeks ago we realized that P needed something to stimulate him while in the car. We saw these little bugs in Toys R Us and decided to give them a try. They are light weight and move very easily while the car is in motion. P loves watching them swing about and I can assume he likes the sounds they make as well. For us, these were a GREAT find!

This product is cost effective and worth price, is durable and made of strong materials that I imagine will hold up through multiple children, extremely useful and readily available at TRU, Amazon and other locations.

    We have one of those mirrors that allows you to see what’s going on in the backseat from the rear view mirror set up. My son loves looks at himself in it!

      We have that too! When I went to get his car seat inspected, they told me I should take it down. Since I don’t look at him while I am driving, I am not too worried about it. I think it is important to have so that if I hear him coughing or something I can look to see if I need to immediately pull over or it can wait till I get to a light, exit, etc…

    Love this! I hadn’t even though about something to stimulate him in the car! He was sleeping through most car rides, but now that he’s starting to stay awake more, this would be great.

      Demanda, they have all different kinds! Corbin will really like watching them move. 🙂

    Aliceana normally falls asleep instantly in the car, but these look too cute! ..now I kind of want to get them.

      You definitely should Brittany! They entertain P in the car and when we are out and about in his stroller. I am so happy with them 🙂
