A lot of families when they set out on the road consider buying some type of gaming console to keep their children occupied on long travel days. There are plenty of options on the market, but it's hard to beat the iPhone and iPod. Here's 9 reasons why one long term travelling family thinks the iPhone and iPod make the best travel toys.
When preparing for our first overseas family holiday in 2009 (when the children were 3 years and 1 year old) one of our biggest packing dilemmas was what toys to take for our two children. In 2010 we faced an even bigger dilemma - what toys to take on the road for the next twelve months as we backpacked around Asia. It was really hard to decide what toys that would keep them occupied, that they wouldn't get tired of too easily, didn't have too many pieces that would get lost and didn't take up too much room in the packs. Looking at the mountain of toys in our house we were certain the kids were going to go insane with only a couple of toys each to play with.
