Tales2Go, A Family Travel Must-Have

I know packing lists are long for summer getaways, however, be sure not to miss Tales2Go. An application for the iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, Tales2Go plays an unlimited number of children’s stories and songs. It’s like the favorite app Pandora Radio with kid-focused content.

I was testing out this application and quickly fell in love. We use it daily on our drives to and from school and sports. It’s the one thing that brings peace and quiet to my car. The stories are broken up by length (2 minutes to 6 hrs), age, rating, and popularity, making it very easy to find stories that are perfect for your crew. All my kids — ages 11, 9, 7 and 2 — love the variety of stories available. Our family favorites include, “Miss Mary Mack,” “The Monkey & the Crocodile,” “Gorf: My Hat!” the “Diary of a Whimpy Kid” series, just to name a few.

The first 30 days are free and then you have to pay an easily justifiable annual fee of $24.99.For the cost of two CDs, the fee that is well worth the value you get from the excellent selections of content available.

Be sure to add this to your list of travel item “must haves!”
