Vroom to manoeuvre

The gogo Kidz Travelmate is a great device for parents who need to carry a car seat on their travels. The Travelmate will strap to most car seats, instantly turning it into a stroller for a travel-weary toddler to hop onto. HK$750 at Bumps to Babes, units 14-18, 21/F Horizon Plaza, Ap Lei Chau, tel: 2552 5000

Take a back seat

Packing light is an alien concept to family travel. But for those heading to places where there are laws for child car seats, the BoostApak eliminates the need to haul a bulky booster across continents. Doubling as a backpack, it has plenty of room to keep in-flight entertainment and spare clothes. The backpack opens up into a booster seat with seat belt, and a hard plastic internal shell acts as the booster while protecting the items underneath. It's hand luggage-approved and available in green and pink. HK$499 at Nobletime, shop 239, Level 2, The Westwood, 8 Belcher's St, Western District, tel: 2382 8065

Hang in there, son

Designed for babies who can sit independently up to the age of 30 months, the Totseat travel high chair keeps toddlers at the table. Unfolded it can adapt to many chair designs, including high and low-backed and even open-backed. Machine washable and in several colours and patterns, the Totseat also complies with European safety standards. HK$280 at

The easel way out

A bag, easel and table in one, the Go Vinci Backpack by BenBat is a clever solution to store children's travelling paraphernalia and keep them entertained on the go. One side has a clear outer casing that works as a picture frame with the solid surface also doubling as a mini-table, so doodlers can squiggle anywhere. The other side is made of soft nylon for comfort when carrying, and on the inside there are pockets for crayons, paper, books and other accessories. Available in green, blue or pink. HK$289 at Le Petit Pois, shop B44, First Basement, Treasure World (Site 11), Whampoa Garden, Hung Hom, tel: 2356 8077

Blanket coverage

SnooziHedz combines a travel blanket, cushion and animal. Zipped up, it serves as a pillow with an animal case (choose from dinosaur, lion, penguin or dragon), which becomes a fleece blanket when opened up - with a pocket for a cuddly friend to snuggle up. An inflatable pillow provides head and neck support. HK$249 at Little Whale, shop B, basement, 61 Caine Road, Mid-Levels, tel: 6310 1074
