Mum to DD 9/07 and DS 01/11
My 2 yr old is great in the car. She really likes kid's songs on CD (esp when we sing along), her magnadoodle, lots of books, and her rag dolls (she likes to dress and undress them, mostly).
The one thing about comparing today's road trips with the ones of our childhoods (or at least mine) is that today's kids are in car seats that are MUCH more restrictive than they were 20-30 years ago. My DD is so limited in her range of movement that she can't even really see out the window that well. I can't imagine being pinned to my seat at my shoulders for all those hours! I remember being able to lie down flat on the seat and take a nap when I was a kid on a long car ride and we kids rode in the way back of the station wagon on one long trip! So, even though as a kid we took tons of road trips without needing a video to entertain us, and even though we are a tv free family, we are considering the use of a dvd player to help my kid though the long hours of being pinned at her shoulders and waist while mom and dad enjoy much more freedom of movement. Just my 2 cents.
