Ever since the first Transformer toys were marketed in 1984, they have continued to grow in popularity. I don’t think it was ever anticipated that it would Transformer Toys For Fans of Any Agebecome such a great franchise.

The toy line was later adapted into a comic book series, animated tv shows, and into numerous feature films. When it comes to action movies for boys, there is nothing better than the movie, Transformers. Featuring fantastic computer-animated action and an all-star cast of actors,  Transformers has dominated both the entertainment and toy industry.

With soaring ticket sales at the box office for the release of the movie-”Transformers: Age of Extinction ,”the fourth film in director Michael Bay’s global blockbuster franchise, Transformers action figures are once again a popular item for boys and Transformer collectors.

Zazzy Pals

I have the perfect game to help your child break the monotony of boredom this summer and wouldn’t you have it, the game is perfect for travel. Zazzy Pals Canine Cardz, created by pet artist, educator and mother of four,  Randy Bieniek, is an entertaining dog-themed game for children of all ages. After years of hearing incredible stories about the pets she was commissioned to paint, Bieniek realized their personalities could be captured in a fun, 3-D way by combining paint, craft and humor with the new Canine Cardz .

This game requires none of the boring, time consuming set up that most Canine Cardzgames require. Also, no batteries required means Canine Cardz can be played on the go without having to make sure that the batteries have juice before heading out.

The game includes a 54 card deck in a hard plastic, snap closure case, 4 large foam dog bones, 12 colored pencils, a sketch pad and instructions. All contents are kept in an nontraditional cylindrical, plastic case. The cylinder is transparent, allowing the consumer to see all of the brightly colored, dog based contents inside. The packaging is both eye catching and practical as the lid is attached by a fabric handle, which represents a dog collar. Once again ready for ‘on the go’. It is perfect for taking on vacations, sleepovers, birthdays, etc.

The deck of cards are absolutely adorable. Each card is numbered one through twelve and each card has delightfully funny ‘picture’, of a dog and a true short story below about that pooch. Each individual number of card has the same picture and story, so the cards can be used in a match game called ‘mutt match’. Instructions are for the eight dog themed games; Mutt Match, Pass the Pooch, Woof, Stay, Go Fetch, Dog Catcher, Zazzy 3′s and Bones are included with the game.Each of these games allows children to build skills including, reading comprehension, color recognition, fine motor skills, and visual memory.

And away we go. Traveling with a toddler can be a daunting experience. Just because it can be both a challenging and daunting doesn’t mean you should limit your travel plans or even rule out traveling altogether! My son lives in Ottawa, so we do a lot of traveling back and forth with our 17 month old. Ottawa is about a three hour drive from where we live. Here are some tips I use to make my trip with her a little bit more enjoyable.

  • Schedule small pit stops to stretch and allow your toddler to run. Those on routes along the highway have become my friend.
  • If possible, consider starting your travel around your toddler’s nap time. When we can do this we have two hours quit time.
  • A road trip is not a road trip without snacks. I pack it all: Cheerios, puffs, cookies, apple juice etc.
  • Increase your patience and tolerance levels. I don’t know about your toddler, but mine hates to be in her car seat.
  • Pack some activities that both you and your toddler can enjoy. Purchase a new toy and save it for your trip.

We recently drove to Kingston, which is only an hour drive, but our toddler decided to cry a good portion of that drive. I gave her the Baby Einstein Take Baby Einstein Take Along TunesAlong Tunes to entertain her, but sadly that only lasted for ten min- before she chucked it across to the other seat.  The only time she was not crying was when she was eating a cooky. Finally we stopped an on route and I let her walk around.  That did it. She was a happy camper after that.

Nonetheless, Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes  is worth mentioning as it is a great take along toy and it is small enough to pop in your purse. This baby’s version of an “MP3 player”plays classic music and has colorful lights that dance across the screen. The switch on top has two volume settings (high/low) and also turns the unit off.   It’s not extremely loud, so it’s not annoying to parents.  Recommended for  infants 3 months and up I think the toy is more suited for those under one.  In my opinion Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes is a pretty basic toy for a 17 month old, which is why she lost interest so quickly.  When shopping for take a long toys insure you buy age appropriate toys.

What are your thoughts and experience with toddlers and traveling?
