By now you’ve probably heard of the infamous tarmac tantrum by JetBlue flight attendant Steve Slater earlier this week. I might have needed a drink, too, if someone’s overhead bag landed on my head. Deploying the emergency exit? Probably not.
Don’t want the same meltdown from your kid when you’re in the friendly skies? Pack these airplane-friendly toys, and hope for the best.
All kids love to doodle, but wrangling colored pencils, crayons and paper on a tight plane isn’t fun. Instead, get their creative juices flowing with an AquaDoodle – Travel Doodle ($15).
Kids getting bored? Whip out Melissa & Doug’s Flip To Win Bingo ($20) and let the games begin. Don’t worry, there are no loose pieces and everything stores conveniently on the board.
This Mudpuppy Sticker Set Play Scene ($13) has 50 reusable vinyl stickers to arrange and rearrange for your child’s ever-changing adventure. When that gets old, play a game of I Spy.
