Air Cot has unveiled its child seat extender, a game-changing device for long-haul travel that helps children sit comfortably and prevent toys, books, and food from falling on the floor.
“When traveling with kids, having an extra space should be a top priority. The thing is, toys and snacks drop to the floor and between the seats, and kids struggle to get comfortable on long-haul flights and road trips. That’s why a child seat extender is among the airplane and car essentials parents should get,” Stephanie Edwards, creator of Air Cot, said in a statement.
The Air Cot seat extender was designed by Edwards, an ex-pat mom who had struggled through transatlantic flights and, after adding a second child to the mix, knew there had to be a better way.
“The device could help parents wade through the challenges of traveling with toddlers. What Air Cot provides is a portable, lightweight travel hammock designed specifically for children,” Edwards said.
Compared to other footrests that utilize inflatable cushions, the Air Cot is made of pliable waterproof canvas that can be set up in seconds and, when stored, takes up less space than the standard water bottle.
“Your child’s seat belt loops through the base of the Air Cot to keep it in place, while adjustable ripstop nylon straps loop around the base of the tray table in front of them. It also comes with an adapter for the car,” Edwards said.
“The high quality, waterproof canvas wicks away moisture, keeping your little one clean and dry throughout the flight. Two quick-release buckles allow the hammock to fall to the ground in seconds. It not only allows for a quick exit in case of emergency but also makes for easy cleanup for those inevitable spills,” Edwards explained.
Edwards said one of the greatest parts about the travel cot is its compact size. It can be easily folded and stored or unclipped from the tray table if a child would rather dangle his legs or roam the row than sit back and relax.
Air Cot also keeps children’s toys and treasures close by and off the airplane floor, keeping them clean and germ-free.
The best part is that Air Cot is not only for air travel. If you would rather road trip than fly, Air Cot has you covered with the Car Cot Adapter. This easy to install adapter transforms the Air Cot from a seat extender for the airplane to a footrest, and toy catch-all, for the car. No more searching around for fallen toys and sippy cups from the front seat. Air Cot catches these items and keeps them within arm’s reach.
If you’ve ever taken a long car trip with kids in tow, you know it doesn’t take long before they get uncomfortable. Being stuck in the same position for hours makes for achy legs and squirmy, unhappy kids. Air Cot lets them prop up their feet, providing relief for their little legs.
