Summer Travel Fun with ALEX Toys at Sweet Suite

Summer is almost here - and I am loving it! One of the things I love about summer is more time for fun adventures. Fun adventures means traveling! Traveling can be a lot of fun but also daunting with kids. I recently shared a post about the must-have travel products when traveling with kids. And these are important items to pick up before your next road trip!

But of all the essential things, kids need travel-friendly toys. Have you ever tried to play a board game or draw in the car?

Let's just say it can become a total mess and leave kids (and parents!) in tears!

I am excited that one of my favorite toy companies, Alex Toys, will be showcasing their travel-friendly toys at Sweet Suite this year!  Attendees will get a chance to see the toys in person and get a feel for why they the best travel toys around!

Here is a snapshot of some of the toys to put on your list before your next trip:

Spin Master Toys recently launched the full line of Paw Patrol toys to go right along with the show. I was able to preview these at Toy Fair back in February. I knew they were going to be a hit and I was right! Boston was so excited to dive in and play with his favorites from Paw Patrol.

GoldieBlox Sneak Peak

As an entrepenuer, I am always excited to find ways to encourage and empower girls. Giving girls the opportunity to realize they are valuable, capable and able to reach their dreams is one of the greatest things we can do for our future generation of women. Which is why I am a huge fan and supporter of GoldieBlox.

The goal of GoldieBlox is  to"get girls building." They are working to help "level the playing field." By incorporating a story with a construction set, GoldieBlox taps into girls' strong verbal skills, enabling them to build and create great things. A future generation of female engineers starts with something as simple as playing with blocks.
