Let me be clear. I have tried A LOT of travel pillows. I think we all know what the majority of them are like. That strange bean bag texture. Or alternately sagging and hard in all the wrong places.

So I was excited to trial the Trtl pillow and I wasn't disappointed. Soft and fleecy yet reinforced enough for support, it has a range of different positions you can adopt and folds to an unbelievably compact size. As we soon discovered, it's great for young ones, often fractious when travelling, as well as adults.

That is my constant travel companion @EstellaRoxie trying it out. We wanted check its functionality on the ground as well as in the air!

Soon it was time to trial it on a flight to Miami too. My younger daughter Electra wanted in on the action too, as usual.

I am on the road again tomorrow, this time travelling solo with a baby, and I will definitely be taking this pillow along for the ride.
