Day 6: Win Travel Kit

CONTESTS | | June 24, 2009 at 4:55 pm


CONTEST CLOSED When the folks at MomGenerations (one of my favorite blogs) asked if I was interested in hosting a giveaway along with, I thought how perfect it was since I was hosting a contest extravaganza during the same week. The “On The Road With” kit will go one lucky Mommy Niri reader! It promises to keep those nagging whines at bay. Family trips with my 2 little girls, the “Are we there yet?” is not what we deal with, it would be easier to have that than the constant whining. Put a 2 year old and a 4 year old together and you have the mimicking and screaming enough to drive you crazy.

Well when you see what is in the prize, it would be enough to silence the whinest of the kids. The travel kit includes a plush kid size travel pillow, a copy of Dr. Seuss’s There’s a Map in My Lap, a travel game kit, notepad and pen and adorable tote bag (a $30 value). Travel is differnet from the average travel site. Once you become a parent it becomes apparent that travel takes on a whole new meaning. That 2 hour drive can take 4 hours with kids. Having a resource to help with all your vacation planning needs  that takes into consideration what parents really need is a boon to parents. The site provides a unique resource for parents providing a combination of expert reviews, parent recommendations, and most importantly age-appropriate attractions for family-friendly destinations. Here is the most imp0rtant aspect, they help you do it on a budget.

The “Cities on a Shoestring” feature allows to check for free or almost-free attractions in any city. Worth it especially if you are on a time crunch and don’t want to peruse loads of sites to find the information, and personally I can’t imagine anyone who has that time to waste anymore. With tips on hassle free air travel, videos of popular family destinations, and safety this should be a look before you go site.

You can win theThe “On The Road With” kit by entering the contest.Its easy to enter the contest, just follow the details below:
