Best kids pillow: How to choose in 2020?


Having a pretty nice kids pillow can make a real difference to how comfortable your children are on the plane, or during a long car journey.

We have found the kids neck pillow to be a bit of a game changer for travelling with kids and wanted to share all our research.

So if you are trying to find the best kids pillow to add to your travel accessories, then read on.

In this article, we cover a few things to consider when choosing kids pillow.

Firstly, kid’s necks aren’t as strong as adults and so, while memory foam travel pillows may be popular with adults, they tend to be too dense for kids, whose necks aren’t strong enough to push the memory foam back.

So for a kids pillow, it is best to look for a microbead travel pillow. These small polystyrene beads are more malleable and therefore easier for small kids to move into the right position.

Another feature to look for (and it sounds obvious, but you will be surprised how many aren’t) is that a children’s travel pillow needs to be easy to clean. If you’ve ever been on a flight with a small child, you will know that kids spill things ALL THE TIME.

Being stuck in a confined space for a period of time inevitably means that drinks, food and bodily fluids will get spilt at some point and so you need to make sure that your kids pillow is easy to clean.

Finally, a feature we find helpful in a children’s neck pillow is some kind of strap or ability to attach it to your kids luggage, backpack or stroller. This saves it being constantly dropped or dragged along the ground.

If you want to use your kids pillow for the car, make sure that the pillow is not too thick so that it doesn’t push your child’s neck forward when they are seated in their car seat. From a car safety point of view, you need to ensure that your child’s back is aligned with the back of the seat and that the car seat straps are not loose.

Kids will love the cute design of these special neck pillows, which look more like soft toys than travel pillows. The range of animal designs includes hippo, cow, monkey, pig, giraffe, penguin, dolphin and more.

Not only do these kids pillows double as a cute travel buddy, but the fuzzy fleece cover also makes them soft and cozy to cuddle into.

We love that the soft hypoallergenic micro-fibre filling is sustainably made from recycled materials, such as water bottles. However, we did find that this made the pillow quite firm and not as malleable as the microbead filling.

As a professional manufacturer, we are committed to giving the best products to our customers in lower price.Unlike traditional pillow manufacturers, travel pillow are our strengths.

Putian recommend this kids pillow for the neck for ages 3+, but due to the firm feel of the pillow and how thick it is, we think this would be better suited to slightly older kids. The thickness of the kids pillow also means that it isn’t really suitable for using as a car neck pillow in a car seat.

This pillow is machine washable.
