Is the 1st Class Pillow THE number one travel accessory for small kids?

I always fly home (to Holland) and back to Singapore with my 5 and 2 year old on my own (clever scheduling dad!) in economy (Dutch!), so stocking up on as many of these kids travel accessories is a big priority for me! I was also thrilled to hear that my kids could get a first business class-type sleeping experience for a fraction of the price with the 1st Class Kid Travel Pillow from Kid on the Move.

The 1st Class Kid Travel Pillow is designed so that young children can spread out to sleep rather than lie across my lap and shutting off my blood circulation to my legs! If you’re not a smoker – it’s an easy couple (or more) breaths to inflate the pillow. In some airplanes you can even use the above head air vent nozzle to help you out. Once partially inflated, you then push the pillow on the floor in-between the passenger seats and either deflate or inflate according to your preferred level of support.

It can be used by kids and adults of all ages. My 2 year old was able to lay down horizontally as the 1st Class Kid Travel Pillow extended her seat to a little bed, while my 5 year old was able to sit back comfortably without his legs dangling down the chair. With my kids in the window and middle seat, I was even able to partially rest my feet on the middle pillow which is an additional benefit for this Mama!

The 1st Class Kid Travel Pillow was designed to fill in the leg room area of economy airline seats. It is very flexible and can be easily folded or rolled into many different sizes so that it easily fits into your carry-on bag along with all the other things you’re schlepping for your kids! Check with your airline if you can use the travel pillow as a foot rest. We flew KLM Royal Dutch Airlines who are fine with it. The exit row is an area where you are unlikely allowed to use it, but then again the FAA requires that a passenger is 15 and older to even be allowed to sit in the exit row!

I never thought I’d say this but I am actually not dreading the next long-haul flight with the kids this Christmas! Treat yourself this Christmas Mama, you’ll thank Kid on the Move later!
