Travel Essentials for the Family from Diono

To make your family travels go as smoothly as possible Diono have created a range of products to help parents out.

The Diono Easy View Plus™ allows parents to keep an eye on their little ones when they are in a rear facing car seat helping make the school run fun. The Easy View Plus is easy to attach with or without headrests, doesn’t block rear visibility and does not need to be positioned directly over a child. The perfect angle for vision is created by a pivot ball mechanic for 360 degree rotation - without even having to move your rear-view mirror. The Easy View Plus provides a large crystal clear viewing mirror, which even has a light, and remote control so you can check your baby in the dark, perfect for when the autumn evenings start to draw in. RRP: £20.00.





The Diono Stow n Go will revolutionise your school run. Have all your car-journey essentials in one place, the organizer simply hooks over the seat in front and has seven pockets and two drink holders in a washable and waterproof fabric for your little ones to store their treasures, snacks and drinks to occupy them when they are on their way to and from school. The top fastens around any head rest while the bottom fastens around the seat for a secure fit. It folds away for easy storage in seatback pocket when not in use, and is crash tested. RRP £13.00.




The new Diono Starry Night Sun Shade is the only blind to block the sun by day and provide Day-Glo stars by night creating the perfect environment for a pre or post-school car snooze. The unique PVC fabric provides year-round protection from the sun whilst the starry night design provides a magical sleep setting.

  44. My travel tips are (a) always take more of everything you need than you think you'll need to allow for delays etc. ; (b) story or music CDs are better than screens to work on and watch and help to avoid travel sickness; (c) always have some verbal games you can play up your sleeve - great as a distraction and help to pass the time.

  68. always tell your child the journey is going to take longer then it actually does that way if you make the journey in good time the kids will be happy and if you get stuck in traffic the extra time you spend in the car means no odds to the kids as they thought it was going to take that long anyway :)
