Just a quick note before I head off on my hols about this blow-up cube thing that you can take on a plane to fill the gap between a child’s seat and the backrest in front. I haven’t tried this so cannot personally vouch for it – but it looks like a pretty genius solution for a long flight. Or even a short one frankly.
Anyone got one? Or use something similar?
Happy holidays!! I’m off to Devon for a to pretend to be a pirate. Do pirates drink Cloudy Bay? Please say yes.
These have just got me through a round the world trip with my two aged 5 and 2. Brilliant! https://jet-kids.com
I’m off to Devon in 3 weeks – hold the weather for me? Thanks. Have a lovely time, and this – why did the pirate walk the plank? Because he didn’t have a dog. It’s my daughter’s favourite. That one will while away 10 seconds on the road, you’re welcome.
(Also having seen the paper, I hope your friend is recovering well now x)

They do look great but word of warning, they’re banned by some airlines due to allegedly causing a risk to evacuation in an emergency, hopefully you’ll be fine just depends who you’re flying with x
Can’t speak for the inflatable, but Cloudy Bay is my fave also. If you’re looking for a nice cheap version (easier to add ice cubes to without wincing about the price), hit up Silver Moki which is currently 25% off for six at Sainsburys – comes in somewhere under £6 a bottle and it’s very nice indeed.
Yes! Use them longhaul with Singapore airlines! My young kids love their ‘beds’. Used them in the bulkhead and regular seats
Thank you Maria xx

Or you could just save your cash and make a hammock type arrangement for their legs by asking for an extra blanket. You tie the two corners from the short edge on each of the arms that the tray is attached to and then reach the other short edge over to the seat and get you kids weight to hold it in place.

Us Antipodean pirates drink gallons of Cloudy Bay a day. Happy holidays!
I just bought two of these for an upcoming flight to Australia with my 3 and 6 year old:
Haven’t used them yet but (a) they pack up pretty small and (b) I checked with our carrier (Singapore Airlines) in advance of purchase, and they confirmed they were OK to use provided they didn’t interfere with the seat reclining in front.
I plan on using ALL the tips from the earlier post on this trip. GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY!
