Have Toys, Will Travel

Going away for spring break or planning a summer vacation? Stop into Yoyo Joe's before you pack your suitcase and pick up a few travel friendly activities for the road. These games have no pieces to lose, but lots of fun to be gained. They are also quiet in case your trip includes boarding a plane.

"Find It" is a contained treasure hunt; Search for hidden objects in colorful recycled pellets. With themes like At the Zoo, Sports, Kids, Glitz and Glamour and the Wizard of Oz there's a version for everyone in the family.

Or turn off the electronics and turn on the conversation with "FamilyTalk", 100 conversation starters designed to keep families connected. With questions like, "If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?" and "What was your favorite lunchbox as a kid?", you'll get an interesting peek into the thoughts and feelings of your family. Also available in Teen Talk, Grandparent Talk, Camp Talk, and Buddy Talk.

Check out all our "Flip-to-Win" games-Bingo, Hangman, Bear Hunt, Memory, and U.S. License Plates-with flipping pieces, there's nothing to lose.

"Double Shutter" will have your kids practicing their math while away (just don't tell them!) The game is contained in a lidded tin box.

Imaginetics play boards, and Melissa & Doug magnetic mazes and picture maker also provide great entertainment for the journey.

Before you know it, you'll arrive at your destination without ever hearing, "Are we there yet?"
