Spring break is approaching, and it is time to plan a family road trip. Before you pack the mini-van and get ready to hit the road, check out these tech gadgets that will make your traveling smooth sailing.
Smart tablets are very popular among kids these days. They can not only provide hours of entertainment but also educational opportunities for children. What can be difficult is choosing the right tablet for your kid. Parents want something that is durable, easy to use for their children but also gives the parents control of the content their children access. Nabi is the perfect choice! It has a durable, colorful case and dual mode, one for parents and one for children. Parents have complete control of the apps, information and videos that their children are allowed to see.
Mobile DVD player
Many newer minivan models have integrated DVD or Blu-ray systems. However, if you have an older model and your vehicle does not have any of these systems, there are still very good portable options out there for you to buy. One of them is the RCA twin mobile DVD player. It comes with two seven-inch LCD screens that can be attached to the back headrest of your car. Best of all is the ability to play two different movies at the same time, so there will be no trouble on sibling-island.
Whether your child is using a DVD player, a tablet or a portable music player, it is important to protect his hearing. Crayola MyPhones are perfect for kids, come in bright colors, are very durable and most importantly, have a “built-in-volume-limiting” system that keeps the sound pressure down to levels appropriate for children (capped at 85 decibels). Kids have the option to pick from earbuds and headphones. The latter can be colored and decorated with stickers, making them even more fun for the kids.
This little device looks and acts as a watch, but it is also much more. Filip is also a phone and a smart locator. It is designed for children ages 5 to 11 and is worn as a wrist watch. The device allows children to make two-way calls to five people, receives short texts and provides location indoors and outdoors. Filip is controlled from an app that is downloaded to the parents phone and will give them much needed peace of mind.
These are some great gadgets that should keep your children entertained and safe while traveling, because there is nothing better than a happy kid and relaxed parents to enjoy the road.
