If you have a baby and you travel a lot like me, you probably know this equation:
Baby + airplane = HELP!
Unfortunately, the emergency exit when we’re 30,000 feet in the air can’t do anything for us when the baby starts having a crisis.
Obviously, our first instinct is to look around to see who is looking at us. The look on our face is like saying to them: I am in control! But inside, there is general panic.
What if the crisis lasted the entire duration of the flight… i.e. 8 hours? 😱
A infant is unlikely to cause you much concern. But from 6 months and up, a baby will not just sleep and drink. So plan an anti-crisis kit in which you will have a few toys to amuse baby.
I offer you toys from Canadian businesses for children from 0 to 24 months, perfect for air travel since they meet my 3 PLANE FRIENDLY criteria:
- Don’t stain

Coloring Placemats from Simons
In addition to being fun, these cotton and polyester placemats are practical for mom and dad and the environment because once used, you put them in the washing machine, dry them flat and reuse them. Comes with a set of 12 washable markers. Little trick so that the baby doesn’t drop his pencils on the floor all the time: attach a string to each pencil and bring some adhesive paper to stick the strings under the airplane tray.

That’s it for the 5 ideas for toys from Canadian businesses that are perfect for entertaining your child between 0 and 24 months on the plane.
In conclusion, it is said that travel forge the children regardless of their age. Of course being so young your children will not remember the details of their journeys they had shared with you but you will be able to tell them when they are older, and you will also be able to show them all the places they have visited as a child on a world map.
