We’ve done a huge amount of travelling with Ameli. By her first birthday, she’d been to 13 countries, and we’ve managed to get together a good few tips for travelling with a baby.

Today’s giveaway is a very interesting concept in travel preparation and according to its manufacturers is everything you need to make travel easier.

Little Jet Setters Grab And Go comes in a self-contained package – one of those where once you’ve taken everything out you’re not entirely sure how you they fit it all in in the first place. It is convenient for  travel, packs quite flat so it won’t take up a huge amount of space in the nappy bag, for instance, and contains quite a lot.

The Grab and Go Pack really does contain a mountain of stuff.

There’s a soft toy which is small enough to be something to play with and cuddle up to without needing to book an extra seat. There’s also a travel toy clip, which is very useful little gadget if you don’t want to be bending down and crawling around under seats to find lost toys for your whole flight or journey.

There’s a reusable sticker play set and a reusable magnet play set. I was really surprised by these, and they definitely made the pack a winner for me. We’ve saved the sticker set for our next trip, but the magnet set went down really well. I didn’t expect my 18/19 month old to really care for it much, but it kept her entertained for ages. We actually just keep it in the car now for regular trips, and she loves it. The only down side is that the stickers themselves can get lost, but on the up side, the magnetic pad is travel toy clip ready.

For more ‘traditional’ entertainment, there are crayons and a doodle area – the actual ‘packaging’ of this set turns over to be a colouring in page, which I thought was pretty inventive. The five crayons are thin though, so weren’t ideal for Ameli, but then the packaging says it’s for children 3 and up, so maybe it’s fine.

For practical use, there are three disposable bibs.  Although I’m not much a fan of disposable items, environmentally speaking, these are definitely very useful on longer journeys. They are soft but very strong, and plenty absorbent. And way better than a wet or dirty top after a bit of turbulence or a bump in the road.

There are also disposable change pads – again, very useful – assuming you don’t have a change pad in your nappy bag already. Still, they make nice little ground covers, and are very good quality.

And then, there are all-natural baby wipes – ideal for travel, this smaller sized wet wipe bag is really useful too. They do say there’s no alcohol, parabens or SLS ‘s, which was a relief because companies tend to go for the cheaper things sometimes, and here they obviously haven’t. There are 20 wipes in the pack.

And finally, the After Mess Gel – while we don’t normally use sterilisers and sanitisers, I did find this really useful on a flight where getting up to go to the bathroom to wash hands wasn’t always possible. Of course, that’s what the wipes are for too, but as I say, I found this to be a good substitute for water.

So there you have it -  a bag, jam packed for adventure. Depending on the mode and length of your transport, you’ll definitely need to add a few more things, and it doesn’t replace all of your nappy bag – most notably the nappies – but I  think it’s compact size makes it perfect for specifically flying, as you have such cramped quarters, and can’t keep your nappy bag on the floor near you. This just slots in next to you on the seat.  Fantastic.

Available at Little Jet Setters for £19.99, you also have the opportunity to win one today. Just leave a comment below telling me what you like most about the set, and a winner will be drawn at random using Random.org. The competition closes on the 6th of June.

Little Jet Setters Grab And Go Review And Competition

  1. This is a very basic ‘like’ that I have about this set, but as a busy mum with four kids it’s so handy to have something that can all be packed away in a single neat bag! I’ve just followed you on Facebook too. 🙂

  2. I like the transparent bag so you can see where everything is. No more feeling around in the bottom of a dark bag for ages.

  3. I like the idea of a travel toy clip, it would mean not having to reach over all the time to collect the favourite cuddly during journeys.

  4. The clip sounds fab…….as someone who has scrabbled around on an aeroplane floor (several times!) I think this would be brilliant!

  5. love the travel toy clip. Daisy has discovered how much fun throwing things overboard can be. Although it’s great for my waistline (all that bending to pick things up)it’s less fun when she loses her precious cuddly friends and spends the rest of the day sobbing.

  6. It all sounds great but the stickers and the magnets are a real winner for me- very popular with my little ones!!

  7. The crayon and doodle area is really good, will keep them occupied on a long flight 🙂 and the cuddly toys are cute to have if they want a nap

  8. What a great bag, everything you need for a journey in such a compact neat bag, and the toy clip is a life saver, no tears when fav toy goes missing

  9. I love the way everything has been thought of in this little bag! Things to keep the kids entertained, and clean!
    I know my little boy would love this, he would find it very exciting to see what was in the bag!

  10. Everything in it is great, so it’s so difficult to pick just one thing. My favourite is the magnet set, as my little girl would have so much fun with this.

  11. It’s the re-usable stickers for me. My son loves stickers but once he’s stuck them somewhere that’s it for the sticker play. Re-usable ones sound fantastic!

  12. It would have to be the size I like most. I think id keep one ready in the car and the pushchair just in case!

  13. Magnetic play set is simply divine part of this well thought out simple play set to keep the youngsters busy and happy for hours!

  14. Personally I think that the whole set is perfect but the travel toy clip is the real winner and anyone who spends most of their time on their hands and knees looking for the missing cuddly will fully understand where I am coming from lol!

  15. I think the whole pack in general is an excellent idea, very easy to pick up and go. Everything is kept in one place and I assume it wont take up much room in hand luggage either. Brilliant.

  16. I like the all natural travel products as I am sensitive to msny products. Would toddler be able to undo the clip? No, but it would keep him amused trying to for ages.

  17. I am following Jet Set Mum on Facebook, and have written on their wall to say you sent me. I am already following Diary of a First Child on Facebook

  18. The magnet play set is my favourite idea, and just the general idea that you can just grab this tiny bag and it will contain virtually everything that you need for the journey!

  19. The toy clip sounds genuis! A great idea and one that could save a lot of knees and childrens tears in the long run!

  20. the reuseable sticker set my son would absolutely love, but every item in the pack sounds like it would keep a child busy for a few hours, great giveaway

  21. The crayons and a doodle area is a great idea!! would love this its sure to keep a child busy on long journey!!

  22. Following on twitter (@nc099)

    The best thing has to be that there is so much packed into a small bag that is convenient to grab and run!

  23. the after mess gel has to be my favourite item you never know when you might need it especially whilst out with toddlers whom are potty training and in the toilet every 5 mins xxx

  24. I love this the best bit would have to be the travel toy clip it’s so annoying when my daughter throws her toys on the floor

  25. what an excellent idea just booked a holday abroad with a newborn and pre schooler this has something for both all compact in a bag instead of having a bag or two full of stuff, magnetic board is a great idea

  26. I love this because it takes all the hassle out of packing my own kit! We tend to do very long journeys in the car with our children, have driven to Holland, Germnay, Austria, Italy, etc. Things like stickers are a godsend!

  27. I love this because it’s such a timesaver! I usually put together an anti-boredom kit for my youngest son when we travel, but that’s a bit of a ‘hit & miss’ exercise as I sometimes inadvertently include toys which he’s ‘gone off’. With a whole bag of new delights, that wouldn’t be a worry 🙂

  28. My little girl is sticker crazy so the idea of reusable stickers and magnets is a complete winner for me! She’d be entertained for hours 🙂

  29. I love the giraffe and the lion. We’ve got a jungle theme nursery and these would look great sitting on top of the toy box

  30. Wow. What a great set. It’s a nightmare travelling with children but there’s lots to keep them busy in here – @LilLeese1

  31. I love that it all fits in a little bag but the stickers and the magnets are the winner for me – my kids love things like that!

  32. The sticker set would be a winner for me. Both my girls love stickers and they are the best for entertainment on long journeys (if you don’t count the portable DVD player!)

  33. What a great set! My son would love the magnets and the colouring in bit the most!
    Also following Jet Set Mum on facebook

  34. Following both pages on facebook.
    I like the reusable sticker idea, my children love stickers at the minute!

  35. i love the bag this would keep my little niece happy all day long so would be perfect for when we take her out and about to other friends and family homes as it has everythng in it that you basically need from keeping her entertained to changing her nappy x

  36. What a fantastic idea , I usually have a changing bag full of junk I don’t need but this sounds like a bag with everything I do need ! The little toy would be great. My daughter insists on taking a hive teddy everywhere we go so this would really come in handy.

  37. What a fantastic little pack – almost like a tardis – opens up to reveal more than what you would expect!!! I think my little one would love the magnet set!!! I think magnets fascinate all children, simply because they are ‘magic’ and stick to things without glue!!! I have them all over my fridge, in fact I collect magnets from all the places we visit and my toddler never gets tired of rearranging them on the fridge or her own magnetic board!!!!

    Thanks for the great review!

  38. Hi and thanks for the lovely comp!!!

    I am a fan of both pages and have shared your comp on my wall! Tracy Nixon MSE

  39. The toy clip is a great idea, when we went on Eurostar to Disneyland, I spent most of the journey bending down to pick up my sons toys, and the trouble is you never know what dirty things people have left behind under the seats etc, so this is a great idea!

  40. OO this is so cute – I love idea that its full of little ‘treasures’ as my sons would call them and they would be entertained by just seeing whats inside before they even started playing!

  41. The best thing is the fact that everything is in one bag – no messing around with loads of extra luggage. I wish I knew about this years ago

  42. I like the bag itself – and the fact that you can check the contents without opening it (and rooting around for things inside!).

    Rebecca

  43. Lovely little bag, i like the fact its small enough for the child to carry, that way they will feel ‘important’ that they have their own little suitcase. Of course all the things in it are very useful 🙂

  44. I love the presentation of the set – it looks so nice it’s a shame you have to take things out! @Isis1981uk on Twitter.

  45. i love the travel toy clip, no more apologising to the people in front umpteen times when i headbuttt their seat while trying to dig out their toy from under the seat…genius

  46. My little daughter is such a girly girl and loves carrying my handbags around so would love this for her summer hols in the caravan!

  47. An excellent product to keep them amused while travelling. I particularly like the clear bag – so teddy can see where he’s going!

      1. Thank you very much for letting me know, what a lovely surprise!

        This prize will be donated to charity and will be going to the underprivileged children in Romania.

        1. Hi Luschka
          Just to let you know the Jet Setters pack has arrived. It is fantastic; it’s surprising just how much can fit into that little bag!
          Many thanks once again, Sue

  48. I like the toy clip, having scrabbled round in cars and planes for dropped toys that sounds like a wonderful idea

  49. I love the fact that it is all the things that normally get forgotten, especially the wipes for sticky fingers

  50. For ONE additional entry, you can follow Jet Set Mum on Facebook (please leave a message on their wall saying I sent you!) AND/OR follow Diary of a First Child.

    DONE.

  51. What a lovely package, I like the way it looks unisex as I have a boy and the sanitizer is a thoughtful addition, plus the packis see-through (so no rummaging!) and its very well stocked for those inevitably sometimes stressful journeys! 🙂

  52. What do i like most? Everything! Anyhting that keeps a boisterous toddler entertained on a long flight gets the thumbs up, I have a 8 hr flight with my little whirlwind in october and already having nightmares!

  53. This useful pack is perfect to keep our children entertained on our journey up to Newcastle in June.

  54. what a fab little set! i have 2 little ones that would love thi 🙂 i am impressed that the bag is a colouring set too 🙂 fab! xox

  55. It’s not so much one thing, but I like the variety of it, a mix of useful things and entertainment, plus the cuddly toys are very cute 🙂

  56. The baby wipes are a must have….dribbly chin, sticky fingers and food dropped down clothes. And that’s just me.
    I follow Jet Set Mum on Facebook but I don’t have the google thingy to follow your blog. 🙁

  57. This looks fab! I like the sound of the travel toy clip, we recently went on our first flight with our 16 month old and everything ended up under the seat!

    I already follow you on Facebook but have liked the Jet Set Mum page now too!

  58. What a nice compact bag of useful things. I could have used those on the plane when the kids were little and you don’t want much extra stuff. That’s got everything covered.

  59. everything in this set looks amazing. The reusable sticker play set would be great – my daughter loves stickers!

  60. We are going on holiday in a week and a half and we have a little girl who is a right messy pup so get up and down in the plane is going to be a nightmare so the hand sanitisers are a fab idea. She is Lao very dependant on cuddly toys for comfort and I think have a dinky one in the pack is such a good idea as a distractoon on the flighy. and to have all be in a bag. Compact and neat to fit in with your hand luggage is genius.

  61. This looks fabulous! We have a big trip to make in July to a wedding where Em is being flower girl so it would come in really handy!
