Cool New Travel Gear

After attending the International Home and Housewares Show and the Travel Goods Show which was held at the same location, I was granted a few review samples of some of my most exciting finds. And I have the perfect opportunity to put them to the test this week given this my family/working vacation to Orlando for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. Take a peek at the video:


Extra coolness:
The Train Reaction luggage stabilizer is made in the USA. While the TuGo cup holder and the Kuhi Comfort Travel Pillow are mom-invented products and made in the USA.

The Cocoon Grid-It folks have an impressive line of products for every day use as well as travel. It's all fun yet practical. I want to buy their iPad bag...after I get an iPad.

On a cautionary note, do not have a child sit on the Walkin Bag seat while his brother attaches it to a larger suitcase using the Train Reaction piece and proceed to pull it widely around the house. This is dangerous. Save me the embarrassment and don't ask how I know this.

Check out my guest post over at The Vacation Gals for more of my family-friendly travel finds from the Housewares and Travel Shows. It's good stuff; it got picked up by the folks at USAToday.com's Travel Tips section.

What is your must-have piece of travel gear?

 Disclosure: some items were given to me for review, but I was not paid to write this post or the one at The Vacation Gals. All opinions are my own.
