Group Test: In-car childrens entertainment

T3
  • Toys to keep the little ones quiet when you hit the road...

    I spy and the number plate game won’t entertain the Nintendo DS generation for long on car journeys. The modern parent needs to be armed with portable DVD players, PMP’s, games consoles and the new breed of tech that will amuse for hours. Some even have an educational benefit, but don’t tell the kids.

    Hate: The cost of extra games can mount up
