Lili and I (Sarina) travel frequently from Arizona to New York to see our family. Very often, we take the red eye to save money and get a little more time with our loved ones. There’s only one problem with flying the red eye – sleeping on a plane is uncomfortable! I’m able to relax a little with the help of my neck pillow; since Lili’s only 6 years old, I haven’t been able to find one that fits her little body…until now. The Manhattan Toy Company answered my prayers to help her sleep while traveling, and created the soft, and perfectly sized Travel + Comfort Neck Pillow
. I was given the Raccoon design to review, and they also have a super cute Fox design as well. The pillow features easy-to-use Velcro tabs at the ends, allowing it to attach easily to the handles of her rolling suitcase. As soon as we boarded the plane, Lili wasted no time in positioning her Raccoon Neck Pillow in the perfect position. Then the unthinkable happened – Lili fell asleep before we even took off! She didn’t ask to go to the bathroom 100 times, switch seats 80 times, she didn’t even ask to watch TV! She was out like a light; in that moment, I was eternally grateful!
It’s super soft, and has a great “squish” factor- not too squishy, but offers the perfect amount of comfort for a little neck and head. Lili loved the little Raccoon, and is in the works for naming it and letting it double as a stuffed animal, as well! The dimensions are perfect for little kids: 10h x 9l x 2.5w. Compared to an adult sized neck pillow, this pillow actually supports her neck and allows her to be comfortable AND safe while wearing it.
Lili was (obviously) extremely comfortable with her neck pillow on, and I was put completely at ease knowing that I could close my eyes without worrying about if my daughter would fall asleep, or if she would wiggle around and possibly bother a nearby passenger. A Travel + Comfort Neck Pillow is on my list of ultimate essentials for children who travel. Anything that cuts down on stress while traveling is an A+ in my book, and the brilliant Raccoon Travel Pillow made it to the top of the list!
