Travel Games for the car or plane trip with children

Travel Games for the car or plane trip with children

With all of the technology available today on cell phones and iPads, various games and activities are only a screen swipe away. But HABA knows the value of unplugged fun. The value of holding something tangible, learning from its shapes, color and feel, and even putting it away, nice and tidy, when the game is done is unmatched. And, there is certainly much to be said for playing a game WITH someone else, whether a fellow child or an adult.

Our top unplugged travel games keep every journey a little happier.
