‘Wow! I’m so looking forward to spending hours together with my toddler in a close confined space with lots of people to judge me” said no parent ever! Most parents I know dread traveling with a toddler. The challenge of keeping them quiet and making them sit in one place, not tearing your hair while waiting for hours to board the plane, the shrieks from ear popping due to changing cabin pressure, the changing of diapers in the small plane toilet – none of it is easy. I can tell you that with good authority, having flown internationally long haul with my toddler to India, Qatar, China, and Chile! And on many of those flights it was just me and him – and let me tell you it wasn’t smooth sailing! But the one thing that literally saved my ass was having a good collection of travel toys with me. Since then I firmly believe in carrying lots of travel toys for toddlers on airplanes and recommend it to everyone who wants a decent shot at a low-stress trip! While I have personally used and love most of these travel toys, I have also included a few that have been highly recommended by my friends and fellow travel bloggers. Apart from using them as travel toys for toddlers on a plane, you will also find them useful for car travel and road trips or even while camping – basically anywhere out of the house. I have also included some of the best toys for an airplane that can be safely given to babies as well – if you are like me and have 2 under 3 running around the house!
