Looking for Travel Gear Online
While it’s true that you can travel with children with minimal gear, there are just some items that simply make the journey easier and more comfortable for you and the little one. But let’s face it, no matter how big Philippine shopping malls have gotten, they still don’t have everything you need or want in terms of kids’ travel gear. You can look online, but internet shops that can deliver to your door are similarly wanting. What’s a mom to do? Well, a mom can buy her travel gear online from the US.
How to Get Your Gear From There to Here
The trouble with buying online from the US is that it is such a hassle to get them to your doorstep in the Philippines. You have to deal with creating a US address with a forwarder, credit card security, and expensive customs and duties. But you can say goodbye to all of that with Uskoop PH.

5 Items You Will Want on Your Next Trip with the Kids
Make vacations with the kids hassle free with these items from Amazon.com which have limited availability in the Philippines or are more expensive to purchase here. These nifty tools fulfilled by Uskoop PH will get you raring to Go Momma!
1. Child Airplane Travel Harness
You can take your FAA approved car seat with you and use it on the aircraft or you can go for the less bulky option and just use a travel harness. The Cares Safety Restraint System simply attaches to the airplane seat and can fit children aged 1 and weighing 22 to 40 pounds. You will still have to bring your car seat if you anticipate traveling by car when you get to your destination, but you can check it at the gate along with your luggage. You also won’t need to worry if it is FAA approved.
2. CozyPhones Kids Headphone
When you’re on a long flight, your kids will use the in-flight entertainment at some point along the way. Protect their eardrums with volume limiting headphones like CozyPhones for kids. These super thin speakers embedded in a wrap around headband are a great choice for those who don’t like earbuds or whose heads are still too small for headphones. Because it’s flat all around, they won’t get in the way should your kids lean back and fall asleep. CozyPhones doubles as a sleep mask as well, so you might want to choose among the grown-up designs for yourself.
3. Snack & Play Travel Tray
Eating or playing on the road can be messy business and could lead to a gunky car seat that you’ll have to clean later. You can keep that from happening by using a travel tray that can wrap around your kid or their car seat such as the one pictured above. Features include wall stops to keep things from falling and side pockets for sippy cups, crayons, puzzles, and other activities. It’s your car seat’s perfect mate.
4. Magnetic Blocks
Need an alternative to an iPad for entertaining your kids on the road? Magnetic blocks are the perfect compact travel toy. This open ended puzzle toy is great for developing creativity, imagination, and fine motor skills in toddlers. They can be manipulated and built in so many ways that they can keep the kids busy for hours.
5. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70
Everyone wants a DSLR until they go on a trip with toddlers and they realize that it spends more time in its travel bag instead of taking pictures. What you need is a camera that is handy and takes better photos than your cellphone. Consider purchasing a bridge-style camera such as the Panasonic Lumix DMZ-FZ70. Bridge-style cameras are best suited to non-professional photographers who like the high resolution quality images from a DSLR combined with the simplicity of use that comes with a point and shoot camera. The smaller size will also allow you to take more photos of your family on vacation instead of constantly tinkering with your camera settings.
The great thing about getting this camera from Uskoop PH is that it is cheaper than getting it from other sites such as ebay:
The camera is just one of many gadgets and electronics that are cheaper to purchase through Uskoop PH, and searching is pretty straight forward. Three cheers for wish fulfillment!
