Keeping Kids Entertained on the Road – Best Travel Toys for Car Journeys

Apr 17, 2024Activities

Long car journeys with little ones can be a test of patience for both parents and children. The initial excitement of the first 10 minutes can quickly fade, being replaced the constant “are we there yet”. At Beehive Toys, we understand this struggle, so we have compiled a list of travel toys for car journeys that will keep your kids entertained for miles, without the clutter of the usual activity set, colouring book, or sticker book.

1. Muffin the Hedgehog

For your little one, Muffin the hedgehog acts as the perfect travel buddy. Crafted from soft plush material, Muffin boasts a very huggable body, embroidered eyes and a charming bow tie – a touch of dapper that will melt hearts! This cuddly hedgehog is not just adorable, but is also built to last, having been created with the highest quality safety-tested fabrics, ensuring it will withstand countless cuddles and road trip adventures. Plus, when playtime gets messy, Muffin can be easily washed in warm or cold water, making him one of the best travel toys for sticky fingers and juice spills.

2. The Mini Cat Stacker

This cute wooden stacker features a set of colourful blocks and a fun bead maze, perfect for keeping little hands occupied during a long journey. But the fun doesn’t stop there! The Mini Cat Stacker is of a small enough size that it conveniently fits into a standard travel bag, making it a fantastic space-saving option and one of the best travel toys for any one of your trips. Additionally, this toy teaches essential skills to your growing little one. As your child learns to pick up objects using the smaller muscles in their hands and wrists, they learn to coordinate their hand movements with their vision, promoting hand-eye coordination. Crafted from durable, natural wood with smooth edges, the Mini Cat Stacker is a safe, fun and engaging choice for any curious toddler.
