What are some of your favorite travel toys for preschoolers?

My son is 2.5 and we will be going on a trip, what are some of you favorite travel toys (things that are easy to pack)? I have some TRU gift cards and would like to get some new fun toys for him, but would like some that we can take with us on our trip.


Thanks for the suggestions so far I like them.  I also wanted to add we will be out of town for about two weeks so I will need items that will keep his attention during that time too!  Thanks!

  • A portable dvd player is teh best investment we ever made! Aside from that we just buy new coloring books and sticker books. Anything new to introduce at the hard times make it a lot easier

  • Leapster 2 was an awesome purchase, my daughter loves it, even on long car rides. Also, she likes to play games. I spy, and stuff, that doesn't require her to be too advanced.

  • color wonder packets, small magnetic board and letter magnets, books, books on cd from the library, car games and music. WE have an xm radio and the 116 kids place station is awesome. I could not imagine a trip with out it.
