Travel pillows are awesome, letting you nod off comfortably from your cramped seat in coach, so you can get decent rest even in the unnatural sleeping position imposed upon your body. Stuffed dolls are awesome, too, giving your kids something to busy themselves with whenever they get restless during family trips. The Zip & Flip Travel Pillow combines them into one, so you can bring both a stuffed doll and a travel pillow, all while adding just a single item to your already-packed luggage.
Made by Kikkerland, it looks like any regular U-shaped pillow that can be worn around the neck for resting your head on during plane rides, bus rides, and all those other times you try to catch some snooze while in a seated position. Except, when unzipped and turned inside out, the pillow transforms into a cute stuffed toy that the kids can play with and cuddle for the rest of the trip.
The Zip & Flip Travel Pillow comes in three varieties: one that transforms into a black bear, one that turns into a brown bear, and a last one that shape-shifts into a penguin, each one as adorable as all stuffed animal dolls should be. Dimensions are 12 x 10 x 3.5 inches in pillow form, with the dolls measuring 13 x 7 x 7 inches. Fabric is a mix of polyester and spandex, with a custom-contouring microbead fill to keep things soft and squishy.
