Traveling doesn’t always have to be hard, but for some reason having 4 kids on the road for more than 1 minute, creates cabin fever. Finding ways to accommodate my kids has been a feat that I have been battling for 9 years now. With every trip I have slowly perfected the must haves on each trip no matter how long we end up in the car.

I found our perfect cell phone at Walmart located in the Cell Phone Isle in Electronics. After scouting the many prepaid plans and phones we narrowed our search down to the Walmart Family Mobile Service station. I gravitated towards this area because of it’s awesome phone plan. Did you know you could activate a phone and have a monthly service for just $29.88. Walmart Family Mobile service is $29.88/month (for the first line) Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan which includes up to 1G of 4G LTE data! YEP! This includes TALK, TEXT and DATA. I mean geeze it was a no brainer for this mom.
As with most things are with my daughter picking a cellphone was a long process, my daughter does not take things like this lightly. I mean sometimes we will stand in the grocery aisle to pick out lunchables for about 10 minutes as she examines every box looking at what candies it has and what juice’s they offer. As she examined all of the available phones on display, she held them in her hand to see how they felt. The winner of this competition of cell phones was the Alcatel One Touch Pop Astro.

This cell phone has it all, it’s responsive screen is quick and is perfect for my daughters little fingers. The phone interface is very easy to use and is basically a smaller version of my samsung galaxy 5s. This next thing has to be my favorite part of the phone. Since we get unlimited Talk, Text, and Data she is able to watch netflix as we drive. A life saver if you ask me, Netflix is jam packed with kids movies and shows. She always has a huge library to browse through and choose from.
