We are going on a semi- long road trip and I was just wondering if there were any ideas for toys for my son to play with.. not too pricey but entertaining!!

I too was going to reccommend a magna-doodle. My little girl loves hers and it made our 10 hour trip in the car better. Other ideas: if you have a portable dvd player you can check-out DVD's from the library for variety and no cost; healthy snacks - dried cranberries, sliced apples; some of his small favorite toys; and books. Good Luck!

Any thing that he could do like magic doodle pads, or those ones that use magnets. DVD's are a must our lil gal did so well when we drove accross the US and she was only 10 months and at the end of the trip I hated ELMO.. but she still loves him.... Good luck. Oh we tryrd to drive at night but she was up cuz it was a new place. We decited to make a few stops and let her out and see some thing diffrent.

my kids love those magic doodle pads. They have a special pen that is attached and you can draw and erase as much as you want.

i don't know if this will help but when i went on a trip i brought a few of their small toys they could play with and a dvds to watch. and drove alot at night so they would be sleeping. they still got a little cranky but it wasn't to bad. plus snacks and juice helped alot.
