Mum reveals ‘game changing’ £3.30 item to keep toddlers happy on flights 


Travelling with a toddler may not be ideal – there is the constant need to keep them occupied. And let’s not talk about how uncomfortable the plane seats are.

But one TikTok mum has shared a game changing product that she uses every single time she flies. 

Mother-of-one Kaleigh Gawn shared a TikTok hack that will not only keep young children entertained on long journeys, but is also an inexpensive way of doing so.   

The TikToker has found a travel product that she says has been a ‘game changer’ on long flights with her toddler.

However, holiday goers have been warned that it is important they check their airline is ok with them bringing this on the flight.

Ms Gawn often shares parenting hacks with her 96.2K TikTok followers and this inexpensive hack has blown people away.

In a video that has gone viral, the TikToker showed how she bought a tiny inflatable travel footrest on the plane with her.

She then shows herself pumping it up, and when it is full it fits perfectly between the seat and the storage in front.

Popping it in the gap, her daughter was able to easily lie down and stretch out during nap time.

In the video, Ms Gawn says, ‘If you’re flying with your toddler, then this one is for you. We purchased this blow-up pillow off of Amazon and it came with a pump and it fills the space between your seat as well as the tray table in front of you.’

She added: ‘This allows your toddler to stretch out during nap time or just lounging, it was a game-changer,’ and in the caption Kaleigh calls her tip an ‘Ultimate toddler travel hack’.

And there are loads that are being sold on Amazon for as little as £3.30. Meanwhile, on eBay the cheapest goes for £7.99.

The best part about these is that they come with a tiny portable hand pump, and are washable and tear resistant.

And the TikToker has left her followers impressed with the hack, with many saying that the blow up footrest is a huge game changer.

One person put: ‘Yes!!!! Thanks mama!!’ 

Another wrote: ’18 hours in the air coming up , I’m getting it.’

And a third said: ‘This looks a game changer!’

And a fourth commented on the TikTok video: ‘This is a great idea and car seats are to much hassles to take with you.’ 

However, it is important that travellers are aware that their airline may not accept this.   

And TikTok users have echoed this too, as one person wrote: ‘Ex air hostess here! My airline didn’t allow these due to it obstructing the seats! Make sure to check with the airline you’re flying with.’

One user said: ‘Check your airline first to make sure they are allowed. Not all allow them.’

While another commented: ‘Hello from a flight attendant although this is allowed, most airlines will tell you to place it at the window seat in the event of an emergency.’

Meanwhile, another brand that sells inflatable kids beds, Flyaway, has listed the airlines that accept their product. 

In the video, Ms Gawn says, 'If you're flying with your toddler, then this one is for you. We purchased this blow-up pillow off of Amazon'
