Travel Toys for Toddlers

We will be leaving this weekend to go on vacation with our 23 month old son. The car ride will be about 5 hours long. I'm looking for toys to help keep my son occupied. He'll be strapped into the carseat (obviously) so many of his favorite toys from home won't be appropriate for the car. I would appreciate any suggestions or any other "toddler travel tips" you have! PS- We will be renting some DVD's from the library but I don't want him to watch TV the entire time :) Thanks!

Front-facing Car Seat That Is FAA Approved for Planes

hi Moms, In her first year my daughter has already ridden on several plane trips, but never in her own seat. she has just been in my lap each time. She's getting bigger and more squirmy now, and I think its time for her to have her own seat on the plane (for her safety as well as my sanity!). Its also time for her to switch from the rear-facing infant seat to a front-facing toddler one. So I am wondering, because this info seems surprisingly allusive on the web: does anyone know how i can find out which toddler car seats are...

Car Trip and 22 Mo Old

My husband and I are driving to FL (live in WI) in April. Our son will be 22 months at the time. Any car trip experienced moms have any tips for making the drive more comfortable/entertaining/bearable for our son? When we planned it, I figured driving would be fine, but now as it comes closer, I am spooking myself out and getting nervous!! Flying is not a possibility (driving is cheaper - we figured it out with plane tickets and car rental...). So, how do I help keep my toddler at ease while driving that far??

Toys for Car and Stroller

Can anyone recommend good toys for the car and stroller? My daughter who is 18 months does not like the carseat and stroller. I can never go on walks with her anymore because she cries and wants out after about 20 minutes ( and thats a long time). She does a little better in the wagon..With the carseat she is constantly arching. We are going on a long car trip for the first time in Nov. and I was thinking maybe if we gave her some new toys she would be a little better.
