Atlanta, Keep those kids happy while traveling in your new car

With all of these new gadgets available it’s hard to remember what driving with toddlers and kids was like years ago.  Just like it’s hard to remember how things got done before the internet! All kidding aside, we wanted to share a few aftermarket accessories to make traveling with toddlers and kids an enjoyable one for everyone in the car.

The first and the more popular choice is a rear DVD entertainment center.  You can order these when you purchase your new Southtowne vehicle or you can have one installed one in your current vehicle.  You can also have your system so that it can hook up to individual sets of headphone so that you don’t have to hear one more episode of Sponge Bob. From what I can tell from my friends with kids, this is the best solution out there to keep boredom from setting in.

Another great accessory for your GMC, Cadillac Or Chevy is a backseat entertainment car organizer. You can load these things up with snacks, drinks, a ton of toys and keep it all organized. This also helps you to drive more safely as you won’t be looking for things in your bag since the backseat entertainment car organizer will have everything your passengers will need in a very organized, easy to get to way.

If you find that your backseat is getting dirtier and dirtier, then here are a few tips to keep it clean!

  • Install a “car-bage” can in the backseat and teach the kids to use it!
  • Protect your upholstery with protective seat covers.
  • Install seat back protectors. Kids like to put their feet and shoes everywhere. One place that is often overlooked until it’s too late is the back of the drivers and front passengers seat.
  • Toys are great to keep kids occupied, but it’s not so great when you find them scattered everywhere in the car.  Add a “toy box” or toy organizer to your car. The key to making this work is that the kids need to get into the habit actually using it!
  • Protect the upholstery in the trunk or cargo area of your vehicle with a cargo mat.

Snack and play trays are also a great addition to the vehicle, especially on road trips. This make coloring, or even doing homework, that much easier for them.

Sunshades are also a great and help protect from sun damage. Yes, you can get sun damage though the side windows while driving, depending on the type of window your vehicle has.

I hope that one or a combination of the products listed above will come in handy when you’re traveling with your youngster! If you have any ideas you’d like to share, post them below or stop by the Southtowne GM Superstore.
