We always pack our baby a few of our favorite baby travel toys any time we travel whether it’s by plane, car or even for the stroller. After several trips with a baby, we’ve learned what will keep a baby’s attention and which baby travel toys aren’t worth packing. While we are certain these 30 baby travel toys will work to keep your baby entertained, we don’t expect you to pack all of them!
