As a brand that develops products that are often used by growing families, we had a few people ask why we would delve into the travel category.  As moms who still have a desire to go and see the world, we strongly believe that today's modern families are both creating homes they love AND finding ways to explore the unknown.  In that spirit, we are sharing some of our favorite family travel essentials.  

1. Quality Umbrella Stroller

Finding a stroller that is easy to travel with AND can handle cobblestones and grass feels near to impossible, but after road testing this Summer umbrella stroller, we can attest that it's the best we've found yet.  

2. Mineral Sunscreen

We love the weightless feel of mineral sunscreens and Hang Ten never seems to let us down.  Easy to apply, the kids don't burn and it has a yummy banana scent.  

3. Hanging Travel Bag

Traveling with kids means extra toiletries and essentials.  A hanging travel kit is the perfect place to keep them all organized and together.  We like the Land's End Everyday Hanging Travel Kit.

4. zestt Kids Poncho

Easily works as a bath towel in the hotel, beach cover up and extra layer for coll evenings.  Our ponchos are as hard working as a mama on vacation.  

5. Kid Size Backpack

Hershel has a great kids collection that isn't covered in animated characters.  Quality construction means you can pass them down to younger siblings or friends.
