Calling All Travel Products for Pint-sized Travelers

Traveling with kids requires special preparation – and gear. From backpacks, carry-ons and cases sized and scaled for smaller hands and bodies to kids’ comfort items like blankies and pillows to practical items like headphones and water bottles and more – we’re looking for travel gear that is made for – and made to appeal to – kids. If you manufacture kids’ travel gear, we’d love to feature your product in the digital pages of Travel Goods Magazine. If you are a retailer with an opinion or story about kids’ travel gear, we want to hear from you as well. To be considered for coverage, please email product details, MSRP, and product photo to kim@travel-goods.org by April 27, 2021.
