As a parent of two young boys, I know things can get pretty challenging when travelling with kids. We love travelling with our boys and have flown around Europe, Asia and have done the flight between Melbourne and London too many times! We could never find great quality products that were fun, “travel friendly” and educational. We saw that there was a gap in the market and launched ickle Kids.

At ickle Kids, we pride ourselves on sourcing products that are unique and different to commercial toys stores and we are constantly introducing new products to our range. We believe our products are perfect for TWK’s customers.

The ickle Kids range consists of:

  • Wooden products – games, puzzles, push along toys, pull along toys etc
  • Brain Teaser/logic Games – our award winning games are sure to keep kids entertained
  • Books – puzzle books and sticker books
  • Playscenes – great removable stickers, which can be played over and over again on individual playscenes.
  • Craft items –cool metallic crayons, sewing and lacing activities, play dough tools etc.

Ear Plugs

Pain may be experienced due to pressure changes especially during take off and landing.

Childrens ‘earPlanes’ are safe, soft ear plugs which equalise the air pressure on each side of the ear drum and reduces harsh noise naturally.

Safe, soft and comfortable. They are available from chemists for ages 1 year and over. Adult sizes are also available.

 

How to survive those long car drives with kidz

Odd or Even
What are the chances?
Game for two players – Have each child guess if there are more license plates that end in an odd or even number.  (plates that end in a letter do not count)

2.  Set a time limit, usually 10-15 minutes.
