We have a problem when it comes to car rides. A squirmy, wiggly kid who just can't seem to sit still in the car seat. I know, I'm probably not the only one, right?
I'm not referring to big sister, who has been well-trained on road trips around Europe since she was born and can sit in her car seat for a good six-hour journey. Nowadays, she sits in her booster seat and buckles up without us having to nag at her.
I'm talking about the toddler, who somehow likes to stand up, move around, sit on my lap or just demand to be breastfed during car rides. She would kick up a fuss whenever we put her in the car seat and with all the whining and wailing, it gets literally impossible for the hubby to concentrate on driving.
So you know we went to LEGOLAND Malaysia recently, right? Considering how we were stuck in the causeway jam for over two hours previously, I wasn't particularly looking forward to the car ride. That was, until I saw a glimpse of hope when I received this innovative, unique new product which I might even call a life-saver - the "Fun-on-the-Run" Car Table Bag by Ministry of Tots.
The great thing about this table bag is that you can personalise the contents according to your child's age and preferences. Of course, this means you can also easily replace the contents when the kids start to get bored. For Angel, who is a little art lover, I keep plenty of colouring pencils, crayons, markers and a drawing pad. There are also puzzles to keep her busy when the ride gets bumpy and it gets hard to draw.
For Ariel, I keep snacks, water bottle and her favourite toys. She likes to play with the kitchen toys so we thought why not let her cook up a storm in the car instead and keep her occupied?
Benefits of the "Fun-on-the-Run" Car Table Bag:
- Can be customised according to different needs
- Doesn't take up too much space
- Quick and easy to use
- Not just for children, parents with young infants can also use it to keep toys within reach or make formula using a table instead of on their laps
Limitations of the "Fun-on-the-Run" Car Table Bag:
- Average quality
- Comes in only one colour combination
- Can only be used in daylight (unless you wish to keep your lights on or increase your child's risk to myopia)
For safety reasons, remember not to put any sharp or dangerous objects in the car table bag. There is also a risk of the contents toppling over should the car come to a sudden brake. As parents, we need to keep an eye out to ensure that our children have a fun time playing while staying safe.
