 TARGET KNOWS HOW TO MAKE 'GETTING THERE' MORE FUN;
 KEEPING SMALL RIDERS HAPPY MAKES EVERYONE HAPPY
 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Planning a trip? Those who plan to bring the kids along know the challenge they face: How to make a long trip in the car or on a plane pleasant for both the kids and the adults. To make the "getting there" part just as much fun as the "we're here!" part, travelers can find the following activities and games for backseat riders in the toy departments of Target stores across the country:
 Under $5
 -- Colorforms stick to car and plane windows and peel off easily -- kids can use their imaginations to create scenes on the window with Mickey Mouse, Barbie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Sesame Street muppets.
 -- Mattel Hot Wheels mini racing cars -- lookout for some unusual terrain -- under the seatbelt, across the armchair and up to the headrest.
 -- Assorted jump ropes -- they take up very little car space and are a great way for little legs to spend some saved energy at rest stops.
 -- Metal and neon plastic Slinkys -- this classic toy keeps kids busy looking for new ways to make the Slinky spring move -- from the back dash to the seat to the floor.
 -- Milton Bradley pocket water games -- an alternative to the more expensive pocket video games, they keep kids busy trying to work their way through the watery mazes.
 Under $10
 -- Tyco View-Master 3D -- when kids look out the window with these "binoculars," they can see their favorite characters from "The Little Mermaid," "Sesame Street," or animals of our national parks -- all in three dimension! They can click on different frames for a complete story.
