I’ve been travelling for years with Finlee (my 7 year old) and Chloe (my 3 year old) and we love setting off on a grand adventure. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t dread, just slightly the plane ride when travelling with kids. I mean you just never know if it’s going to be a smooth flight or if all hell is going to break lose; especially on the long haul flights.
What I’ve found is that the flight goes ok at the beginning, they get feed, watch some IPAD etc, but when it’s time to actually sleep you can almost cue the crying, screaming and meltdown. The kids can’t get comfortable, their heads flop down and wake them up and it just continues. So you can only image when owner Sam from Plane Pal Australia contacted me to test out Australia’s best family travel accessory for our trip to Bali.
What is a Plane Pal?
Plane Pal is the most ingenious idea since sliced bread. It’s an Australian custom designed inflatable cushion that simply fills the space on an airline between your child’s seat and the seat in front of them. Plane Pal is made from top quality nylon, is super light weight, compact and comes with a pump for stress free, easy inflation after take off.
How to Use Plane Pal
Step 1 – talk with your kids about their trip and explain what’s going to happen – test run the Plane Pal at home to get them even more excited.
Step 2 – Once you’ve taken off, take product out of the carry bag and use the pump to inflate.
Step 3 – Insert between the 2 seats.
Step 4 – Sit back, relax and enjoy the sweet, sweet sound of your children NOT crying.
My 1 Regret Regarding This Product
I’ve seen a lot of different products on the market over the 6.5 years of running our online shop Finlee and Me and I have never seen something as legendary as this when it comes to travelling with kids. The only regret I have regarding this product is that I wish I would have known about it earlier on because this would have made my flights to Canada, the USA, Antigua, Hong Kong etc with the kids SOOOOO MUCH easier.
If your travelling with kids not only by plane, but also by car or train and you want peace of mind then I would strongly encourage you to grab your very one Plane Pal today.
