AUSTIN, May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ternPaks,
creators of curated kids travel accessories that reduce screen time
and entertain children, today announced their official launch. The
company encourages both kids and their families to "inspire &
wander" by delivering high quality products that streamline and
ease the stress of family travel. The travel-themed products such
as art folios and dry erase mazes are practical, engaging and offer
unstructured play while fostering creativity.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, children and teens
spend 7.5 hours, on average, in front of a screen for
entertainment, daily. Pediatricians warn that it's important to
balance screen time with other healthy behaviors such as books and
activities. Additionally, the pandemic has seen more families
choose domestic road trips as their vacations of choice - meaning
more time in the backseat for their children. ternPaks products are
comprised of children's activities and toys designed specifically
for family travel.
These innovative products are aimed at children aged 5 to 10
years old during car, train or airplane rides. Their signature
product - the complete ternPaks - are backpacks filled for short
and long trips. Magnetic pads and cubes for STEM play, art and
doodling materials, reusable dry erase mazes, and a journey journal
that includes a bedtime story and space for kids to reflect on
their own experiences. These are also available for individual
"The reality is traveling with children is hard. Structure helps
to offset the chaos of it all: the early mornings, the long car
rides, the uncomfortable seats, waiting at a restaurant, the
monotony of 'are we there yet?'" says LaToya Allison, CEO, ternPaks. "Our goal at
ternPaks is to provide parents with highly curated options that
allow children to disconnect from their electronic devices, so that
they may reconnect and engage with themselves, their family, and
their surroundings. Whether it's a holiday, or an everyday outing,
we have options for everyone."
Founders LaToya Allison and
Mariana Güereque created ternPaks as they found themselves spending
an inordinate amount of time choosing activities and products for
their own children while traveling. As both were constantly asked
by other parents about the things their kids were using, they came
up with the idea for ternPaks. Both believe that unplugging from
the screen, creates opportunities for children to connect within
themselves, their surroundings, and with their families. Offering
more than entertainment, the merchandise encourages kids to reflect
on their travel experience in the moment.
"We started this journey out of a tangible problem we personally
faced while traveling: How to fill those in-between moments without
constantly reaching out for an electronic device," said Güereque.
"We realized we had been independently curating products, investing
considerable money, time and effort to fill this real need, and we
desperately longed for an easier solution. When we couldn't find
it, we set out to create one ourselves."
The products are durable in all seasons and built to last.
Before launching, samples were sent across the country for kids
ages 3 to 9 to test. The pandemic provided a captive test audience
and only the most engaging products made the cut. Continually
testing new products to add to the line up, they are working on a
"mommy and me hat" for the summer.
ternPaks has recently partnered with children's clothes and
decor boutique, Maisonette, to carry their bundles and add-ons.
Everything ternPaks has to offer is also priced competitively and
of the highest quality.
Travel offers a distinct education for adults and children
alike. Perhaps the most important takeaway is that the journey is
as important and enjoyable as the destination itself.
