It's that time of the year again when families all over the world are making trips near and far to see loved ones for the holidays. If you've got little ones in tow, you know the importance of being prepared for these trips in advance. And that includes entertainment.

We've rounded up toys for little ones and big ones and even some good movies to stream when you get to your destination. But we can all use more recs on toys. Here are 8 toys and games that we've been loving lately. And more importantly, you can easily stash them in your carry-on. 

PLEASE share your own favorite travel toys with us in comments below or on Facebook. 

Tree Hopper Toys - Woodland Animals Match Stacks: This travel-themed matching game is perfect for little ones as it's easy for them to pick up the wooden discs. And it's good for the environment too.

Rubik's Cube Jr. (Green Bear): How cute is this little bear which has the same mechanisms as the original Rubik's cube, only made for little hands and brains? And how cool will you feel when you can finally complete this Rubik's cube?

eeBoo Volcano Island Tell Me a Story 2ed.: These make-up your own story are great for both kids who can read and those who can't just yet. You simply pull out the cards and then start to make a story from there. But you can also do group play or let the kid pick out the cards and have the adults make up the story.

100 Things for Little Children to Do on a Trip (Activity Cards): This is a flash card pack of activities that kids can draw on with a wipe-clean pen, making it easy to clean and reuse for the next child. The only problem is with multiple kids you might need more than one pen!

Educational Insights The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game: We love this speed-slapping, color-matching game. It's perfect fo killing time in a hotel room or in the airport during a long wait. It can get heated though as people race to smack down the cards!

Take 'N' Play Anywhere - Bingo: Kids love bingo. And this two-player travel edition is perfect for them with animals instead of numbers and letters. You only have to come up with a prize for the winner!

Melissa & Doug Water Wow! Reusable Color With Water Pad 3-Pack - Farm, Safari, Under the Sea: This is a long-time favorite of ours. You fill up the pen with a little water, kids color in the pad with it, and after a little while, the picture dries back to clear and is ready to go again.

Bundle of 3 Imagine Ink Magic Pictures Activity Books - Moana, Trolls & Frozen: You can usually pick up Magic Ink books like these in the airport, but we like to be prepared. Stash a few of these in your bag and you'll be so grateful that you did.
