I brought home an intact kit from a recent trip to Istanbul and I nearly started a fight! It's pretty standard stuff among airlines, but the appeal to the kids got me thinking about creating a photo record of various kits and offering a mini-review. (The things we do!)
They didn't like the socks and mask, but they did like the toothpaste and toothbrush. Ear plugs were a mystery to the iPod Generation. The "fancy" case was a winner and turned a very likely 5 into an "average" 7.
Silly? Yes, without doubt. But believe it or not, it was helpful as a way to connect with the kids before and after the trip. Now we have a small little ritual that can help demystify the trip and even create a little excitement.
And, if we're lucky, maybe somebody in the Department of Travel Amenity Kits will read this post and start making these nice-to-have conveniences little treasures for the kids.Sphere: Related Content
