MyTravel Pillow review and giveaway


I have loved to travel ever since I was a little girl.  Just the act of traveling was romantic and exciting; I remember having a great time in the airplane restrooms, just marveling at how tiny and compact everything was, pretending I was a flight attendant and showing people how things worked!

Now, of course, the romance of the actual journey has somewhat receded, and if I could just beam myself to my destination instantaneously, I would.  Who needs the stiff back and sore neck that comes from all those long journeys!  When we travel by car, I like to bring a pillow along, but pillows take up so much room -- which is why I was more than happy to try out MyPillow's travel-sized pillow, the MyTravel Pillow.  It's about the size of a toddler pillow (12"x18"), and it comes with its own carry sack.

About MyTravel Pillow
MyTravel Pillow is 1/3 the size of a standard pillow and can be used on a plane, train, couch or road trips. The two attached elastic straps also allow the pillow to be rolled up and easily packed into its blue carrying case. MyTravel Pillow has the same patented open-cell, poly-foam pillow design as MyPillow which allows the pillow to breathe, providing a cooling effect and adjusts to fit every sleep position. MyTravel Pillow retails for $29.95.

Since receiving the MyTravel Pillow in December, I've taken it on an hour-long flight to Vegas, a 2-hour car trip to Napa Valley, and a 4-hour car trip to Reno.  This pillow is great!  It's travel-sized, so it's easier to carry around, but it's just as soft and comfy as a regular pillow (unlike many other travel pillows, which feel like fleece-covered rocks!).  The pillow has 2 elastic bands attached so you can roll the pillow up for storage:



It also comes with its own carry case so it doesn't get dirty when you're not using it:

I wish it also came with a pillowcase, though! MyPillow does sell a toddler-sized pillowcase which is just about the same size as the MyTravel Pillow, or you could search online for toddler-sized pillowcases in case you want teddy bear prints or something other than plain white!   The MyTravel Pillow is the closest thing you'll get to your favorite bed pillow when you travel, and it sure does make journeys a whole lot more comfortable.  Check it out!

Win a MyTravel Pillow
One lucky Bonggamom Finds reader will receive a MyTravel Pillow.
