Travel Potty

You can never predict when a child will need to use the bathroom, but a travel potty is a great way to keep you prepared at all times. Don’t worry if you’re nowhere near a rest stop or gas station; the travel potty from MCGMITT is foldable and comes with its own travel bag.

Kids Lap Desk

A lap desk for kids is a great way for them to stay organized and clean during long road trips. It provides a space for entertainment devices, snacks, drinks, and art supplies, giving you a break from staying on top of all your kids’ stuff.

Motion Soothers

Motion sickness can make any trip one you’d rather forget. Acupressure bands are natural items that apply gentle pressure inside your wrist for a non-intrusive prevention measure for road-sickness.

Window Shades

Window shades will help your children stay asleep while keeping everyone cool when the sun is beating down.

Blankets

Cozy indoor blankets help ensure no one gets cold, while outdoor blankets give you an excuse for a spontaneous picnic at a scenic overlook.

Before you hit the road for your next family road trip, bring your vehicle in for a tune-up at Sour Lake Chevrolet in Sour Lake, Texas.
