10 August 2017 | Reymart Jan Sarigumba

Yeah, long trips don’t go well with most kids’ attention spans. But with these electronic toys, little ones will have something to keep them occupied for hours and give you a peace of mind.

Whether taking the skies or hitting the road, the idea of traveling with kids can strike worry in the minds of many parents, even the most seasoned ones. Most kids have short attention spans but you can keep them busy by providing them electronic toys that offer entertainment and diversion.

LeapFrog Epic

Tablets are indispensable gadgets in any family’s travel arsenal. They provide a wide range of entertainment for children, from a wealth of games to a plethora of video watching apps. For younger kids, we’d recommend a kid-focused tab like the LeapFrog Epic. It features a playable homescreen, allowing them to create animations by moving cars, floating balloons, etc. It also includes learning games that foster children’s curiosity and critical thinking, building their confidence and comprehension.

Like most tablets in the Malaysia, LeapFrog Epic allows kids to explore and go to any child-friendly sites they like as long as you provide them access. This safe browsing experience will make you feel comfortable leaving your child alone with it. Moreover, the LeapFrog Epic comes with multiple modes like music, creativity, and learning, teaching kids fundamental concepts for understanding the world.

Nintendo 2DS

When kids are bored, they often drive their parents crazy, either by screaming in the backseat or disturbing other passengers. A gaming gadget like Nintendo 2DS, however, can placate this behaviour, keeping your kids occupied for hours. With its robust construction and ergonomic design, the Nintendo 2DS is definitely built for children. It can withstand a bit of knocking and tossing around, although it’s not impervious to scratches and dents. So, if you are in the market for one, we’d recommend that you pair it with a case.

The 2DS allows kids to play all their favorite 3DS and DS games. Not to mention, they can download other games and save those through its 4 GB SD card. If your little one is pestering you for that Super Mario 3DS game, then the Nintendo 2DS could be what you’re looking for.
