LittleJetSet.com: Travel Toys for Tots


Traveling with kids can be a complete joy; however it can also be a disaster if the little ones aren’t happy and content.  This is why LittleJetSet.com, a travel product website was created, to keep kids comfortable and entertained and also to give adults some peace and quiet.

From Law Books to Kids' Books

Two mothers, Hana S. Wolf and Nisha T. Cordero, the founders of LittleJetSet.com, saw the need for a site such as this while doing a lot of traveling with their own kids.  Both former attorneys, they took a break from their practice to create this website

The travel products on the website range from plush toys to clothes, luggage to arts and crafts, dolls and bath and body products.  Products were created to keep kids busy, entertained, educated and happy.

Hana and Nisha are well aware of the many difficulties that can arise with kids, but by putting their heads together they came up with several different ways to make both kids and adults lives stress free.

"As the mothers of three children (five if you include our husbands) who have traveled extensively by car, train and plane around town, up and down the East Coast and halfway around the world, we know all too well the challenges inherent in traveling with kids," they write on their website.

"Rather than just basking in the glory of our travel achievements and gloating about how well behaved our children are on airplanes, we decided to 'take a sabbatical' from practicing law, and share our wealth of knowledge and experience with others like you."

 "When it comes to traveling with kids, no strategy is foolproof. However, you will considerably increase your chance of keeping your children content and, therefore, your stress level down, if you keep them occupied (other than with kicking the seat in front of them), comfortable and well-fed.  Boredom, discomfort and hunger are a recipe for travel disaster.

"At Little Jet Set, you will find an outstanding selection of products and helpful hints that will make traveling with kids easy, fun and educational."

Not only are there several types of products offered, but they are also listed by age – an excellent way to find something for kids of any age range. For the youngest tykes there are diaper bags, strollers, basic books and toys and listed for the older ones (7+) are more advanced games and puzzles, arts and crafts, clothing and backpacks.

The site also has kid-sized art portfolios, journals and photo albums which kids can use to create a personal record of their travels.

Stimulating and Educational Learning

What is not found on the site however, are electronic games "that hypnotize kids into a stupor."   So if a child is interested in a new XBOX or Playstation, don’t expect to find it here.

Kids can pack their toys in a Trunk and then close it up and ride on it.

"As parents, we refuse to surrender completely to electronic gadgets, because we know there are far better ways for our children to spend their travel time. We have discovered an amazing assortment of books, games, puzzles, toys, arts and crafts, and countless other activities that will stimulate your children’s imagination and foster creativity, thinking, happiness and family interaction."
 
The site is geared toward stimulating, yet educational learning.  "We spend considerable time carefully selecting thoughtfully designed and well constructed products that appeal to various ages and interests and that respond to the travel needs of today’s families."

"Many of our toys, games and books have been recognized for their outstanding designs, concepts and content by different awards organizations and publications including Dr. Toy, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, iParenting, National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA), Nick Jr. Magazine, Parenting Magazine, Creative Child Magazine, American Library Association, American Bookseller and The National Parenting Center."
