Play kits attach to tray tables to keep kids busy inflight

Work & Lifestyle

Anyone who’s ever traveled by plane with a small child is well-acquainted with the frustrations of trying to keep toys off the floor and out of the aisles. That’s where the TrayKit comes in — the all-in-one backpack can strap to train and plane tray tables or hang from the front seat in a car to provide an extendable play surface that keeps everything contained. Users of Contented&Calm’s GBP 24.99 TrayKit begin by packing it with the child’s favourite toys and bringing it on board.
