SoundBub, a Bluetooth enabled portable speaker and white noise machine available as an owl, bunny or bear. It’s lightweight, incredibly easy to tote on the go and stows away in a purse or carry on no problem.
The white noise feature is especially great for a noisy hotel room (and for getting babies to nap while out and about – it’s the only thing that gets mine to nap in the car), and the portable speaker function is nice if you find yourself wanting some music (particularly as part of the wind-down / bedtime routine).

Trunki, it’s a great addition for any family flying with young children. It’s a ‘ride-on’ kids suitcase available in many designs, often animals making it a fun way for kids to travel. It makes getting around the airport with young children much easier! Happy kids = happy parents!

41. Phil and Teds Traveller Travel Crib
The Green Active Family recommends the Phil & Teds Traveller crib – it’s one of the travel pack n’ plays they personally use. They fly a lot on discount airlines in Europe, and this pack n’ play is a budget-saver. Weighing in at just 6 lbs., they can fit it in their checked luggage, and don’t need to pay for an extra bag for it. While many hotels offer cribs for free, it’s less common in holiday apartments or Airbnbs, which is when they use their Traveller the most. They also found hotels in some countries – Switzerland, for example, charge a premium to use a hotel crib. Having their own saved them quite a bit of money on that trip!
42. Disposable Placemats
When traveling with littles, you want to be prepared for anything – and sometimes that means eating at places that aren’t necessarily kid-friendly. That’s why it can be useful to travel with these disposable placemats that stick to the table and provide a clean, engaging eating surface for small kids.

49. Travis Touch Plus Translator
When traveling abroad with your family, Travis Touch is an indispensable item to bring along. I’m always scared I’ll end up at the hospital and won’t be able to communicate with the doctor, because we don’t speak the same language.

Imagine traveling to a country where English is not widely spoken. Simple things like taking a taxi or asking about food allergies can become daunting tasks. With this pocket translator, you can rest assured your questions are understood and just as important, you will be able to understand the replies from your conversation partner. Travis Touch supports more than 105 languages, displays a written translation on top of a spoken translation and boasts dual noise-canceling microphones for accurate speech recognition.
On top of that, the built-in hotspot mode lets you share one internet connection (SIM card required) with multiple devices. This way, you and your family can keep your phones and tablets connected to the internet all with just one SIM card. Travis has recently published a great guide on how to choose the best translator device, you can find it right here.
