So, we made a brave decision to test out a road trip for this year’s summer vacation.
After finalizing route itinerary, the only challenge that remained was finding a way to keep Bumblebee occupied and preventing her to desperately wanting to get out of her seat.
Finding a proper travel toy for one year old is a real difficulty, it must be robust enough to withstand some abuse, safe, interesting, and entertain the child for more than a 2 second period of time. Board books or soft toys are all good ideas, but we wanted something more interactive.
Then my wife came upon an idea to make a soft book with threading and velcro that would provide a touch and feel experience to the little one and require various fine and gross motor skills to complete the activities on each page.
It is still work in progress, but she is already loving it.
