Summer time is here and outdoor frolicking is in full swing- YAY! When it comes to vacations, some of us may be road warriors, while others prefer to fly the friendly skies. Either way, one thing is certain: ALL trips with kids require stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. With so many amazing products out there on the market- where do you begin?? Well, we’ve whittled down our favorite top ten summer items to help keep your kids safe and happy while enjoying these beautiful summer days. Whether it’s a trip to the beach, to Grandma’s, or to the neighborhood pool, we hope you’ll approve of these products just as much as we do!
Set this up at the beach, park or pool as a shady retreat for the tykes. Naps, snack breaks and rest periods just got a whole lot cooler! Folds into a compact carrying case for easy transport.
Few things are more frustrating than messing with a giant stroller that just won’t fold (in an airport, no less) or trying to fit said stroller atop the bags in your already overflowing backseat. Stroller struggle, be gone! Moms are raving about how lightweight and reliable it is, and we couldn’t agree more.
Help your babe beat the summer heat with this clip-on fan. Keeps just the right amount of air flowing to cool your little one. The fan grate is tight enough to keep most tiny little fingers and toes out of harms way, but it’s still a good idea to clip out of reach. Two options for charging- USB cable or rechargeable batteries, both included- make this fan a BREEZE! (You know I had to say it…)
Spread out and soak up some sun (or shade!) on this amazing picnic blanket. Water-resistant and durable, this blanket in a bag is slightly padded for comfort, yet light-weight for easy folding and carrying. Plenty of fun prints to choose from.
Keep those sun rays at bay with this wide brimmed sunhat. With double secure tabs and straps, at the back and under the chin, this hat tightens just enough to ensure protection to even the fussiest of hat wearers. Assorted colors and sizes are available to perfectly match your baby’s already adorable swimsuit ensemb.
This high chair is so convenient to pack along on any summer vacation or outing where you might need to boost up your babe at mealtime. Equipped with it’s own travel bag attached, it folds flat, taking up virtually no space in your luggage or the back seat of your car. Favorite feature: all fabric parts are machine washable to de-foodify when things get really messy.
Attach on rear windows to provide extra shade for your backseat co-pilots. Helps to defer direct sun and creates an additional protective layer from those beaming UV rays. Also, the extra dimming helps keep those car-nappers asleep for a more peaceful ride for the whole family!
The mesh seat creates a cozy, stable cradle for exploring and splashing in the water, while the canopy provides additional shade protection. Exterior float inflates easily with just a few puffs of air. When you’re finished, deflates and dries quickly for an easy return to the storage bag.
If you’re traveling with a tiny bambino that still takes sink baths, this is a must. Folds up compactly for travel and fits into most sinks. Hang this from the magnets to wipe down and it’s dry in seconds. Extremely low maintenance!
Lightweight, easy to set up and break down, and is not an eye sore! You can also connect multiple gates to cover more ground.
