1. Compact Foldable Pushchair - If space is at a premium, be it a tiny car boot or restricted storage space, a buggy that’s compact once folded will save a lot of hassle.
2. Travel Blackout Blinds - The perfect solution to creating a snoozy sleeping environment when there is too much light flooding the room – ideal for travelling in the car or a hotel room.
3. Wet Wipes, and more wet wipes – Children are messy at the best of times, so wet wipes are essential for keeping hands and faces clean. The trick is to keep them close to you at all times, not at the bottom of the bag!
4. First Aid Kit – Seems simple, but many parents forget to take plasters for grazed knees or cream for an insect bite or sting. The physical environment when travelling may also have a negative effect, so you could pack child-friendly motion sickness tablets along with some first aid essentials to nip illness in the bud.

John McDonnell, Managing Director of Galt Toys, comments: “Entertaining your little ones while on the go can be a challenge; a long trip can often bring out your child's worst side when all you want to do is unwind. As a parent, I know how problematic it can be, so hopefully our list of essential items will lighten the load - they won’t stop you forgetting the toothpaste, but they will make your holiday easier.”
