Plush toys double as travel pillows

Tricky road trip trick! (Tricky road trip trick, ticky road tip trick, tippy road trip tick...okay, so I have a weakness for tongue twisters. Try it on your kids five times fast.)

From Kirsten:

The best travel pillow ever.  On our recent road trip I brought along a TY stuffed basketball toy - to toss around in the back of the van. When I was drowsy, though, I used it as a pillow and it was awesome!  Behind your neck, or sideways next to your  face it's PERFECT.  Plus it's small, squishable, and is also a boredom-buster! We also have the soccer ball and football - I wonder if the football shape is as good.... or better?  Will try next time.

Now take several inches of elastic and fasten it onto the pillow. Tie a loop in the other end to put over your child's wrist. Long enough to throw, short enough to not throw at you-- and it always comes back.

I discovered this trick on the plane! Great for lower back strain b/c airlines seats are just terrible.

I love your blog - full of great resources for me, both as a mom and an online business owner.

My daughter has a stuffed rabbit that is shaped like a pillow and she has had it since she was 1...SHE STILL USES IT AS HER PILLOW! :)

My son has a zoobie that is a plush toy pillow and blanket! he loves it especially the pillow mode.
