Helpful Travel Tips

Of course, if you’re going on a long journey, your little one might nod off mid-play. That’s why we’ve designed our fun Yondi travel cushions to help make those nap times more comfortable.

Pick from eight fun and colourful characters to take your next journey in style. (And some of these Yondis match our Trunkis as well).

Before you pack up the car and cases, make sure all the apps are downloaded and ready to play. All of these apps shouldn’t need wifi but it’s worth checking before you leave.

Don’t forget the headsets. This means your little one can still enjoy the music even if you’re going by public transport. And a spare battery charger pack will keep the fun going if the battery on the tablet doesn’t last as long as your travel time.
