Baby Got Map

Zig Zag guides are perfect for pint-sized globe-trotters.

When traveling with kids, the shortest distance between two points is a non-stop flight.

But once you get there, we suggest trying ZigZag city guides. Designed to put exploration back into the family vacay, the sets take on the iconic cities of Rome, Paris, San Francisco, New York and soon London. Thirty cards contain kid-friendly facts and activities related to must-see sights like the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain, architectural highlights to the tune of cobblestone streets and domes, and language basics such as numbers and gelato flavors. Pack them in the map folder/carrying case that your little one can wear like a necklace, and make a game of identifying locations by matching the charming images on the cards to the landmarks. On the back of each card are age-appropriate discussion points and activities to keep little world travelers engaged.

Now you’re ready for takeoff.
