Top Summer Travel Products & Hacks to Keep Kids Safe & Parents Sane! by Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds

Here are the amazing Diono travel products and 30Second Mom hacks I shared on WCIU-TV to keep kids safe and parents sane on road trips!

  • Diono Radian®RXT is the only car seat you'll ever need, because it goes from rear-facing to forward-facing then turns into a convertible booster. With safety as its priority, three fit across most mid-size vehicles and it folds flat for travel (FAA certified).
  • Diono Stow 'n Go waterproof seatback organizer makes it easy to find things while traveling. With seven full-size pockets and two drink holders, the top fastens around any headrest.
  • Diono Travel Pal (waterproof) keeps books and toys neatly organized so kids have everything within arms' reach. Placed between two car seats, it has insulated drink holders to keep kids happy.
  • Diono Stuff 'n Scuff provides full seat protection and has a large cargo pocket to hold everything you may need nearby.
  • Here's how to make the snack container!
  • Here's a tip about dry erase markers!
