Must-Have Travel Gear For Kids

Must-Have Travel Gear For Kids

As parents, we know it can be absolute mayhem dealing with the kids while trying to organise so many travel necessities when planning a trip away. It’s even harder when you realise you don’t have a handy kids’ travel suitcase to house the essential travel gear for your little ones.

But don’t worry, Mums and Dads! We’ve prepared a list of the best kids’ travel gear and accessories you need to make packing a travel bag for your little ones a breeze. Bring these along and your vacay with the littlies is sure to go off without a hitch!

Travel bag for your kids

The first thing you need is travel luggage to put all of the kids’ gear in. Whether it’s a kids’ travel suitcase, a duffle bag, or a backpack, make sure it’s the right size to fit all the necessary travel gear for your toddlers. At Penny Scallan, we have a wide variety of spacious and durable kids’ travel bags to choose from to help you find the best one for your child’s travel needs (toys included)!


The first step when packing travel bags for a family holiday is to ensure your kids have enough clothes to last them through the trip. When on holiday, particularly when renting accommodation, it can be difficult to find time, and resources, to do some washing. So, it’s a good idea to pack enough clothes for your little ones to wear each day of your trip – plus some spares for any messy mishaps!

Hats and rainwear

Whether you’re on holiday during the hot or cold seasons, it’s best to have protective kids’ travel gear to match the weather. Be sure to pack their cute hats to avoid sunburn when off on a summer escape, and their rainwear including raincoats and gumboots when heading to somewhere cold and stormy.

Food and drink containers

Of course, you’ll need a container to put their snacks and drinks in. Store them in a bento box or a food jar to keep them warm and delicious. Be sure to stash their sippy cups for lunch time drinking to avoid any spillages in the rental or out at a restaurant. And, if you have a fun family hike planned, be sure to have their water bottles on hand!

Toys and other leisure items

Even the shortest trips can bore your little ones to tears. That’s why their favourite toys and other play items are, sometimes, the most important travel gear you can bring for your kids. Keep them entertained with these so you don’t have to worry about dealing with any tears while you’re trying to relax and unwind.

The next time you’re travelling with the kids, remember to bring the essential travel gear and accessories for your toddlers. By using these items to keep them safe, happy, and loved, you can lessen the stress and focus on making great memories for the whole family.

Pack these items inside your kids’ travel suitcase so you don’t forget to bring them. Shop the best high-quality kids’ travel bags at Penny Scallan!
