Taking little people on a trip can be a snap (we promise!) when you pack strategically. Combine the gotta-haves (like a portable booster seat) with some didn’t-know-you-needed-it items (kiddie headphones) and it’ll be smooth sailing. Or flying. Or driving. Flip through our album for travel gear, accessories and diversions that are easy on the wallet — we’re talking $30 or less.

BubbleBum Booster Seat

If your kiddo is at the point where a booster seat will do the trick, consider picking up a BubbleBum. It's light as a feather (only one pound!) -- just blow it up and go. It meets all the US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and stows away nicely. Find out more about the BubbleBum in our review here.

Available online at bubblebum.com, $29.99.
