Travelling with babies and toddlers can be quite a challenge but with a bit of planning and some great toys, you can make the trip an entertaining and easy one.
When you have five kids and you do not do extravagant birthday parties and holiday celebrations, you have to find a way to manage a reasonable budget for toys and activities.
