#SummerMayhem B Kids ABC Touch Pad (review/giveaway)


Summer is winding down and I’m packing in a lot of fun for the kids’ last few weeks of Summer vacation! #SummerMayhem starts NOW and I’m inviting you to have fun with us with awesome reviews and giveaways of products that have helped and are helping us make this Summer AWESOME!

During the Summer there isn’t much to do around here, so we have to travel to do things…which means extended time in the van. For a 1 1/2 year old that can be rough when you’re too little for DS’s like your big brothers and sister have. It’s also hard for me as a mom to find things that can easily be taken with us…a lot of his toys are huge. B Kids was nice enough to send Justin an ABC Touch Pad to review and it’s perfect for road trips or just here at home.

As soon as we got the ABC Touch Pad, I let Justin have it in his playpen. The boy loved it right away and it did more than I thought it would. I expected it to light up as you push a button or make a noise like a basic baby toy. Not this thing, it has an interactive lights and sound touch pad! There are also different game modes to keep babies’ interest…it’s not the same thing over and over.

The ABC Touch Pad is small enough to fit in a diaper bag so I can just throw it in as we are trying to head out the door. The batteries in it last forever! We’ve had it a while and there are no signs of it dying anytime soon, which is a shock since it’s played with so much! It’s suggested for babies 6 months and up. You can get it at B Kids Shop for $25!

  1. Vikki Billings says:

    Always have snacks in the car like, grapes, apple slices and cracker.

  2. Laurie Emerson says:

    I always make sure that each child has their own special travel backpack and fill it with surprises for each of them. Every so many miles they are allowed to take one surprise out of it. This way they can take the time to enjoy and play with the first surprise before going on to the next one.

  3. Laura Unger says:

    I always make sure that I have designated “car toys” that they only get to play with during long road trips so they stay entertained.

  4. April Brenay says:

    Take a couple fun stops, we made sure to get out and stretch our legs often and let the kids run around

  5. Paula Tavernie says:

    I always carry snacks with us!!

  6. Jill Myrick says:

    Before taking a trip I always pack each of my children a small backpack.
    Depending on the child it might contain a favorite toy, blankie, snack, game, book etc.
    It makes the ride much more pleasant for them and me.


  7. Eileen Burke says:

    Listen to kid’s engaging music, like Bingo or Old Macdonald, anything to distract them from being bored in the car.

  8. Bring coloring books, snacks and books for them to look at.

  9. New fun snacks and toys!

  10. Monique Rizzo says:

    Bring a portable DVD player and lots of movies!!
    Thanks for the chance.

  11. Geetanjali says:

    Take good DVD’d, books and snacks with you

  12. Katherine says:

    Take a variety of things to keep them busy and take frequent brakes

  13. Good music! My daughter screams until we turn on the tunes. If you’re in an area with bad reception, bring an iPod and use an AUX input so you can still enjoy music in the car.

  14. Anitha Kuppuswamy says:

    Take lot of games/activities for long trips

  15. My tip for traveling with a toddler is to stop at a lot of parks and let him run around to burn off steam and maybe get tired enough to nap.

  16. Stephanie Gregory says:

    Bring snacks and drinks so you don’t have to spend money every time you stop.

  17. Micheala R says:

    Make sure you have enough games/activities planned for your little ones. Keeping them entertained is key!

  18. We take a DVD player along, one for each kid otherwise fights would be a brewing!!!!

  19. Bring LOTS of snacks! And activities for the kids to do. We recently flew to CA and I bought tons of coloring books and stickers for my son. He was busy with it the whole time!

  20. Rachel Ellis says:

    We always make sure to pack plenty of snacks. Our toddler gets instantly cranky when the slightest bit hungry.

  21. Shirisha Prodduturi says:

    We take an ipad to keep my toddler entertained along with different dvds and a snack buffet ( different kinds of snacks in a divided box) and also crayons and papers.

  22. We put together “goodie bags” – a few new dollar store toys, a new book, some special treats for snacks… New things always seem to occupy my kiddos for a longer period of time than anything that they’ve already seen a million times before 🙂

  23. Linda Kish says:

    We would make frequent 150 mile trips to grandma’s house to visit. I found it easiest to put my son’s toys in a laundry basket in the back seat next to his car seat. That way he could reach in for toys to play with and not get bored and cranky. Of course, this was long before DVD players in cars and he was the only child, too. It worked well for us.
