When our travel kit arrived, Mallory couldn't wait to open it!
Here's what the kit includes...
Mallory wouldn't wait for our family trip in July to try out the colors and activity book. She immediately sat down and got to work!
She loves activity books like this especially when they feature her favorite characters!
Here's a little more info about the kit from a press release...
NEW YORK – Every parent is all too familiar with the glazed-over, million-mile stare, as their children sit staring at some mindless form of entertainment or pushing the buttons on their game controllers. With a DVD player or Nintendo DS in every minivan, today’s tuned-out child can take their passive entertainment on vacation, too.
This summer, SCHOLASTIC STORYBOOK TREASURES™ puts an end to the million-mile stare with a creative, interactive and handy take-along product: SCHOLASTIC STORYBOOK TREASURES™ THE WHEELS ON THE BUS SING-ALONG TRAVEL KIT ($24.95 SRP). Designed to provide kids ages 3-9 with hours of immersive fun – whether on a plane, train or automobile – the kit features two musical DVDs featuring 15 animated literary classics, a CD with 13 sing-along songs, a 34-page activity booklet loaded with games and activities to support early math and reading skills, crayons, and helpful travel tips for parents. Everything is packaged in a colorful and portable travel case, turning the set into a fun-filled, go-anywhere mini-suitcase for kids! This summer travel season, THE WHEELS ON THE BUS SING-ALONG TRAVEL KIT will be the only trip insurance families need.
