Plane Pal ($78) is an inflatable travel pillow for kids. It’s not a typical pillow as it doesn’t go around their necks; rather, it goes on the floor. Huh? That’s right: The Plane Pal fills the space between your child’s seat and the seat/wall in front, creating a flat space for them to lay down or rest their legs on. And don’t worry about using all of your oxygen to blow it up because it comes with a convenient hand pump and a carrying case.
Plane Pal has been approved by over 40 airlines, including American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Virgin America, British Airlines, and KLM (read the full list on the Plane Pal website). It was designed in Australia and is only sold in one place in the U.S., and that’s Penguino Travel. If you don’t spend the $150 to get free shipping, a similar product called Fly Tot (we’ve featured it in the past) is available on Amazon Prime for $79.
