Best Kids Travel Neck Pillow: BCOZZY Review

Kids Travel Neck Pillow

Traveling and getting to know other people’s culture is one of the best things anyone can do in life. There’s hardly a better feeling in the world than the thrill that comes with seeing the most amazing sights around the world. I’ve thought to believe that right from my adolescence, and although I couldn’t do much traveling as a kid, I made a vow to catch up on what I missed when I grew up.

But traveling long distances comes with lots of stress. It doesn’t matter if it’s a road trip or long plane ride, there’s only so much time you can spend appreciating the landscape without feeling jetlagged or just burned out. I for one am quite fastidious about my sleeping positions. I get cranky after a long trip as I find it difficult to sleep in the car or plane. It doesn’t matter which position I try, I’m just never comfortable. I’ve mentioned this in previous articles and even suggested a few cooling blankets to help when staying in a hotel room away from home.

Kids Travel Neck PillowAs the years went by, I learned to adapt to the sleep deprivation. Although it still takes its toll when I finally get to my destination because I’ll need a full day of quality sleep or two before I can enjoy the sights and sounds. I learned I had to include more days in my itinerary because of this simple fact. However, things changed when my child began to come with me when traveling, as I realized the world stopped being about just me.

I noticed the annoying crankiness right from our first trip together and I couldn’t blame the poor boy. The road trip was quite long and the road was bumpy at some points. I felt he was going to eventually shake it off like I always do but this seemed not to be the case for him. He hardly enjoyed any moment on our first trip and kept complaining of a stiff neck. This experience culminated into a dislike for traveling and I couldn’t afford to let that grow.

I firmly believe there are only a few things you can spend money on that would make you richer, and products that improve the quality of your sleep is one of them. I knew I had to find a solution and during my frantic search, I came across the BCOZZY kids chin support Travel neck pillow.

5 Airplane Toys For Toddlers To Keep Both You And Them Happy

Airplane Toys For Toddlers

Just recently I wrote about how my entire family took its first trip to Disneyland and the success of that vacation hindered on getting my kids their own luggage. Having your children involved in something as simple as being responsible for their own toys, gives them a task and allows them a sense of purpose throughout the whole traveling experience. Each kid had their own luggage, but we put those bags into the overhead compartment throughout the flight. To avoid having to get up 15 times throughout the flight, we brought a carry on bag for the entire families needs. In that bag, we included games and toys for the kids to keep busy along with snacks for them to eat.

Airplane Toys For ToddlersIn this article, I wanted to share with you some of the awesome airplane toys for toddlers that I picked up for the flight. Now I know what you’re thinking, who buys brand new toys for their kids just to behave on a flight…. well, I do. I didn’t break the bank at all, but I did find some awesome affordable toys online that made the 6-hour flight easily worth it. My kids were so well behaved, the wife and I got to enjoy a beverage and even got to play a game of scrabble (an app on her phone) while they played quietly.

Best Luggage For Kids

I think there are two types of parents in the world. There are the parents who envision the perfect family vacation with countless pictures and priceless memories, and then there are the parents who absolutely dread the concept of traveling with toddlers.

I happen to fall into the category of overthinking all the things that could go wrong. Sure, I want all the happy memories and good times with my wife and kids on vacation, but the idea of my kids throwing a meltdown on a plane or whining about the travel time makes me want to abort the whole mission.

Just recently, my wife twisted my arm and the whole family made it’s the first trip to Disneyland.

Best Luggage For KidsMy wife, who is extremely organized took care of most of everything. I tried to help by offering “end of the world toddler scenarios” as she put it, but honestly, the trip wasn’t bad at all.

I do think the key to the success of our vacation was buying our two toddlers there own luggage. It gave them a sense of responsibility and encouraged them to stay organized. Kids love to feel involved in what everyone else is doing, so finding the best luggage for kids was tops on my list of things to do after remembering all the local day-trips we’ve done where Dad has had to carry everything.
