Having little ones in the car often means messy seats, toys strewn all over from front to back, and of course, cranky little ones who will get bored the moment you put the gear in drive. Here are some accessories to help you make travelling easier, to keep the little ones happy and your car clean.

Richell Safety Chair Belt

An adjustable belt that can be used on strollers, car seats and chairs, the Richell Safety Chair belt is an extra support layer that prevents your little one from toppling over, especially useful if the car comes to a sudden halt. The large surface area of the pouch, which doubles up as storage when the belt is no in use, provides cushioning and extra gentle support if your little one has difficulty sitting up by himself.

Travel John Jr Disposable Urinal 

Available online here

It may sometimes seem that kids need to use the toilet at the most inconvenient times, such as when you are on a long car journey. With the nifty Travel John Jr Disposable Urinal packs, your problems are solved if nature comes a calling. They contain LIQSORB, a substance that turns liquid waste into a gel in a spill-proof, odourless bag, providing you with a convenient, sanitary, discrete and compact solution. The added bonus is that the adults can use it too if they feel like they can’t hold it in any longer.
