Think of these two amazing finds as the helping hand you’ve always wanted when travelling by plane with children.
If you’ve ever had to juggle children, strollers and luggage at an airport, you’ll know what an amazing invention the Aussie Kidz Travel Mate is. This nifty gadget transforms a car seat into a stroller – two birds, one stone. If your child is rather attached to their car seat, there’s no need to leave it at home and have to put your faith in a hire seat. Simply take it along with you, leave the stroller at home, and you’re good to go!
Here are the specs: it has a telescopic handle, weighs just 2.25 kilograms, can be pushed or pulled and is compatible with most Australian car seats. This is the first time the Travel Mate has been available in Australia. It costs $99.
Once at your destination, there’s no need for the handy, child-friendly transport options to end. The SideKick Bliss is an ingenious nappy bag and baby carrier in one. It’s capable of holding a child weighing up to fifteen kilograms and can be worn on either hip. It can also be used separately as either a baby carrier or nappy bag. The nappy bag has everything you expect and can be worn over the shoulder or around the waist.
The SideKick Bliss is available in three colours: grey, yellow and pink, and costs $239. Both the Travel Mate and SideKick Bliss are available from GoGoBabyz.
