Travel Bottle Kit - TSA approved, ready to go

Travel Bottle Kit is a great travel gadget for packing and organizing and, most importantly these days, abiding by the TSA rules. (TSA regulations) It is also great for health and for the environment since these are made from food grade material and resuable again and again.
A kit consists of leak-proof and break-resistant travel bottles that can be filled with shampoo, lotion, body wash, vitamins, and other travel essentials. In the eBags 3-1-1 Nalgene Travel Bottle Kit, the bottles also have different color tops for easy identification and they come in different sizes as well, ranging from 2oz down to 0.5oz. These bottles easily fit into a 1-quart zip-top bag.
Travel kits help reduce the amount of space in your suitcase when packing up various personal and hygiene products Since you can take only so much with you on the trip, its a great idea to not drag a full size shampoo bottle or lotion with you. Most bottles can provide sufficient volume to hold enough shampoo/conditioner/shower gel for a week trip. This way can pack more of other essentials and pack less in your suitcases. Or, as we have done on our trip, not take suitcase along at all, by packing everything tightly in small containers and Space Bags. Save on airline fees and your health.

Why good to have on a trip:
- easy to pack and carry
- portable and convenient
- leak-proof and break-resistant
- get past security without a problem

Lift up the car, easily

Titan Exhaust Air Jack:

Be a superman, get an adrenal rush, or just get the Air Jack, to lift up the car.

Air jack is inflated via a 15ft. hose that connects to tailpipe. This way you always have the power to blow up the jack no matter where you are with your vehicle and if you do not have the electric pumps or full heavy jacks with you. Though it can also be operated with air compressor using optional adapter if you would like do it the old fashioned way or not able to access the tailpipe directly. The one-way back valve will keep it inflated for up to 45 minutes and can deflate slowly or as fast as 5 seconds.
Also, as the Air Jack is made from woven polyester material coated with PVC, you do not need to worry about placing the jack on the frame correctly without damaging it, or if you can get a jack under the car at all. Double layered coating on the top and bottom of the Air Jack provide further protection from unseen jagged or sharp edges or debris.

Why good to have on a trip:
- Changing Tires
- Vehicle recovery from mud, sand, and snow
- Easily lifts the car with no additional external power
- No waiting for the mechanic or another car to arrive

Family-friendly travel kit

Sing along with family-friendly travel kit
by Mary Ellen Botter on

Everybody can sing along with this musical travel kit

Few child-oriented music CDs can entertain parents, too.

The "Wheels on the Bus Sing-Along Travel Kit" from Scholastic Storybook Treasures is an exception.

The 13 songs on the disc include new versions of tunes parents sang when they were in elementary school, such as "Wheels on the Bus" and "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands," plus the charmer "Over in the Meadow" and the hilariously mock-serious "Tooth School Anthem."

There's plenty here for all ages to sing together.

The kit also includes two 60-minute musical DVDs containing 15 animated storybook classics.

The videos' artwork is varied enough to hold children's interest for miles, but when young eyes tire of the small screen, the kids can turn to the accom- panying 34-page activity booklet (crayons included) for more road-filling play.

The videos have been assembled from the library of Weston Woods Studios, known for film adaptations of children's storybooks.

Parents will recognize some of the stories, perhaps having read the books to their little ones.

The travel set ($24.95) is aimed at children ages 3-9. It's available for less from online booksellers.
