As much as you love your family, the holiday season can be really stressful and traveling doesn’t make it any better. You can make your life that much easier by simply investing in a good travel pillow, so you won’t become cranky before you arrive for any type of celebration. I have always loved to travel, ever since I was little. Just traveling was exciting to me and I remember having a blast on airplanes, just marveling at how compact everything was and pretending to be a flight attendant and showing people how things worked on the plane.
Now, the excitement of the journey has receded and if I was able to beam myself into my destination instantly, I would. Who wants to have a stiff back and sore neck from those long journeys, as most of my traveling now is done by car. Whenever traveling by car I bring a pillow along but it does take up a whole lot of room- which is why I decided to purchase the My Pillow travel sized pillow. The My Travel Pillow. It is about the size of a toddlers pillow and it comes with a carry sack. The My Pillow company is more famous for their My Pillow and their My Pillow mattress topper.
The My Travel Pillow is about a third of the size of your standard pillows. It is able to be used on a road trip, couch, planes, and trains. There are two attached elastic straps that let the pillow become rolled up and then packed into the blue carrying case. This travel pillow comes with the same type of patented poly foam pillow design like the My Pillow which lets the pillow breathe and gives you a cooling effect and will adjust to virtually every sleeping position. Plus, it is a bit cheaper than the full model going for around $30.
Since I purchase the My Travel Pillow I have taken it on a flight to Vegas, a 3-hour car trip to my parents, and a 7-hour trip to Houston. This is a great pillow. It is the perfect travel size, so it makes it easier to carry around but it is just as comfy and soft as the regular sized pillow. It is certainly not like my other travel pillows that I have had, which have always felt like rocks in a fleece cover. Since it has elastic bands you can roll the pillow up to make it more compact for storage or use.
I really do wish that it would have come with a pillow case. My Pillow does sell toddler sized pillow cases that will fit on the My Travel Pillow, or you can search online for toddler size pillow cases in case that you want prints or designs instead of just plain white. My Travel Pillow is one of the closest things that you will get to having your favorite pillow on you when you travel and it does make the whole traveling deal a lot more comfortable. I love it and you will too.
