Space-A Travel

One kid on a computer, one kid on an iPod, and one kid on a tablet while flying on a military aircraft.

If your family travels all the time like mine does you are going to love these new tech products, introduced at the TravelingMom-Techlicious Holiday Tech and Travel Show in Seattle (#TNTSeattle). These products will enhance your travel experience. I consider these to be some of the best technology for travel.

I love traveling to remote locations and I’m even up for slightly rustic experiences. But I am not up for traveling without wifi. I know that there are some people, like Unplugged TravelingMom Gina Vercesi, who like to unplug on vacation, but I am not one of them. I want to be able to browse the internet whenever I like for whatever reason I choose.

Speaking of the devices we use while traveling, one of them is the new Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition. It is the ultimate new tablet for kids and it is amazing.


Here is why I love it:

  • 2 year warranty – no questions ask
  • Heavy duty case (aka Kid Proof)
  • Gorilla Glass
  • 1 year of Amazon FreeTime unlimited
  • Parental Controls
  • Cheaper than other tablets at $149

My 7-year-old son is like a one man wrecking crew. Handing him a tablet is not necessarily something I would normally do willingly. He has broken multiple electronic devices. However, with the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition I no longer have to worry about it.

When he accidentally kicked it out of the car yesterday and it bounced across the pavement multiple times, it did not break. He could even throw it 25 feet into the air and when it lands it will not break! I know because I’ve seen someone chuck one into the air two times in a row and it didn’t break. I thought the guy was crazy, but he wasn’t and he manage to sell me on it!

That is why I am now totally obsessed with the AT&T Unite for GoPhone by NetGear – a Wifi Mobile Hotspot. It can literally go with me anywhere enabling me to always have wifi and it only costs $99.

  • It is pay as you go, so you won’t use too much and run up your bill
  • Up to 10 devices can be paired

Picture this – I’m on a 33-hour road trip, because I desperately want to see my mama in Texas and we are stationed in Oregon. My children are sick of watching movies and have already played with everything we’ve packed. They are about to turn on me and one another. Instead, I turn on the wifi hotspot. Now instead of fighting and complaining they are happily playing on their devices. Doesn’t that sound magical?

Thinium Utra Thin Docking Charger

Thinium chargerNow you can’t go around with a bunch for tech products without an awesome charger and I just discovered a pretty cool one. It is the Thinium Ultra Thin Docking Wall Charger. This little guy fits into your pocket no matter how skinny your jeans! It can plug into a regular household outlet or a usb port. It is also designed to hold your device while it charges. So, you don’t have to worry about needing somewhere to lay down your phone, because it holds it. Not only that, but you no longer will need a cord!
