For The Little Ones

  • Separate toys into Ziploc so that you can find what your child needs – Lego in one, Polly Pockets in another and action figurines in another

  1. I agree 100% with you. In my case, I bring ordinary plastic bags (ziploc bags are expensive!), recycled from the groceries :) They’re very useful and protects your clothes from getting wet!
