Are We There Yet? by Aurora: Toddler Travel Giveaway

Keeping up with an active toddler at home is hard enough and it is nearly impossible when we are out and about. I have tried countless ways to make Jack stay by my side, but nothing ever seemed to work.  We just recently received the new Panda Bear backpack and Gerome the Giraffe neck rests from the brand new travel-friendly product line called “Are We There Yet” from the  leading toy and gift manufacturer Aurora World Inc. This is the same company that brought you YooHoo & Friends™, Milly™, Dreamy Eyes™.

The new line consists of plush toys, backpacks, neck rests and “My Name Is” ID tags.  You may know their most popular character Cheeky Charlie.

I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first, but decided to give it a try. I showed it to Jack and he immediately wanted to put it on.  It has an adjustable safety harness and  plush lead for you to hold on to.  The thing I was most impressed with was the fact that the lead went to the bottom of the backpack.  Wearing the “By My Side,” we went for a walk in our neighborhood and he was so happy because he could safely walk like a “big boy.”

The second product is a comfortable neck rest for traveling.  My son is not one to fall asleep in the car unless he completely exhausted, so I tried it just as a pillow for him to and from grandma’s house.  Gerome fits around his neck really well and he is very soft making for a great pillow. He left it on for a little while and rested his head.  This product is a great concept and will be great when we are on the road for an extended period of time this summer.
