Family vacations are an unforgettable experience, but the actual travel can be daunting, especially with kids. Whether you and your family are hitting the open roads by car or navigating crowded airports, the journey is tiring (and sometimes seemingly endless), and the kids will need to be entertained!
To best prepare for your upcoming adventure, we suggest turning to the family-owned and operated Blackhawk Hardware in Park Road Shopping Center, where you will find a toy department full of portable products and travel-friendly entertainment for all ages.
Thanks to their discerning team of buyers, with years of experience, you can shop with ease knowing you are selecting from a well-vetted offering of classic toys dedicated to learning and the educational experience as opposed to electronic tablets and screen time. And who needs to worry about keeping up with charge cords and batteries?
Here are a few ideas to get you started, but we encourage a visit to the store for you to experience the wonder of the toy department first-hand. Say “hello” to Pickles for us—you can’t miss him!
1. Packable Projects
Jump start the school year with craft projects—friendship bracelets, doodle boards, reveal pads, Diamond Dotz kits, sticker books and beyond. They can make something, decorate something and mostly importantly do something besides ask if you’re there yet.
2. Go Wild
A creative way for your little ones to make the most of their travel time is letting their imaginations take flight with the world of Schleich—life-like figurines that inspire imaginative play while painting a picture of the animal kingdom. There are dozens of animals to choose from and they are easy to pack for a summer playcation!
3. It’s Magic
Magic tricks are not only a classic, but they also may entertain parents and kids at the same time! (Well, as long as one of those parents isn’t driving the car.) An activity that will engage the entire group—who doesn’t love a good card trick or mind-reading trick from Marvin’s Magic? It’s guaranteed to amaze.
There are tons of other travel toy options from small-scale board games and car classics to fidget toys and die-cast cars. Blackhawk is bound to have a toy for every kid, no matter the age or the interest. Happy travels!
