Trunki Yondi Monkey Review

I recently took part in a twitter party hosted by Britmums all about car journeys. Lots of people joined in with hints and tips on how to make car journeys with the kids more exciting and more comfortable.  As a family we travel up and down the country all the time so I did have some tips to share. I always like the boys to have a snooze especially if its a long journey as it passes the time. Big J is usually on his phone and little J loves the iPad but they both do relax.

When we were sent a Trunki Yondi Monkey to review I was convinced little J wouldn't be interested. The Trunki Yondi is a child's neck pillow He doesn't like things on him such as caps, sunglasses etc so I thought he might try and pull it off straight away but I was willing to give it a try. He always looks hunched over in his car seat and when he does fall asleep his head drops to his chest and it looks so uncomfortable. We are always reaching over and trying to prop his head back up.

Firstly I showed him the Yondi and I attempted to pop it round my neck. It didn't fit of course but I wanted to show him what it was for. This Yondi is suitable for ages 2+ and there is a bigger version for 5+. When he was sat in his chair at home he pulled it off straight away and wouldn't put it back on. He's so fussy like that but most kids are at this age. I persisted for a few days leading up to our day out at the weekend.

When we got in the car I got out the Yondi, I popped it round his neck and he left it there. The Yondi has hidden magnets under the chin but as you can see they wouldn't fasten around his neck which was quite surprising as he is only two.  I think he needs the bigger Yondi. I gave him his toys and iPad and off we went. There is also a Trunki grip attached to the yoni so you can attach a child teddy or toy. He left the neck pillow on the whole time which I was quite surprised. He looked so comfortable.

After our family day out little J was exhausted when we got back to the car. He was really happy to sit and relax using his new Trunki Yondi.  It wasn't long into the journey home before he fell asleep. As you can see from the photo above his brother also sits with his head tilted forward. He needs a neck support for the car because he looks so uncomfortable. 
Little J uses his Yondi all the time, he even reaches for it himself. Its a must have for car journeys and we are taking it on the plane with us in Summer so he will hopefully have a nice little snooze.
