Finally, someone invented a blanket in a pillow...introducing Blankillow!

Blankillow is the FIRST of it’s kind!  It is made up of three separate pieces in one: (1) The world’s softest flannel poncho blanket, (2) unique memory foam cushion, and (3) the coziest flannel pillow case to hold it all inside. 

Blankillow comes in two totally different designs, both maintaining the same concept of a blanket in a pillow! 

 

TRAVEL BLANKILLOW

  • Softest plush blanket worn as a poncho, so the blanket will never fall off your shoulder while traveling again! 
  • The tooth shaped memory foam inside the Travel Blankillow soothes and relaxes the head, neck, and shoulder muscles.

HOME BLANKILLOW

  • Finally! A decorative throw pillow that soothes and supports the head, neck, and shoulder muscles while lying on the sofa.
  • Simply unzip the seam of the Blankillow to grab the softest plush poncho blanket without ever moving off of the sofa!
  • No need to worry about messy and unorganized throw blankets all over the sofa again! Blankillow is the all-in-one decorative throw pillow which stores your blanket!

A Detroit Startup Kick Starting BLANKILLOW!

Blankillow comes in two completely different designs and sizes: Travel & Home. Forget about the uncomfortable, choking, horseshoe-shaped travel pillows and dirty airplane blankets. Travel Blankillow’s unique shaped memory foam fits perfectly behind the neck, allowing the head, neck, and shoulder muscles to relax comfortably. The poncho blanket solves the problem of the ever so annoying blanket falling off the shoulder. The Travel Blankillow comes in a convenient travel bag to throw over your shoulder, wear as a backpack, or simply clip to your luggage.Whether it’s a plane, train, bus, or car, simply unzip the seam of the pillow and unleash Blankillow! It truly is the softest, most comfortable travel pillow. 

Forget about the uncomfortable throw pillows and blankets tossed all over the sofa. The contour shaped memory foam of the Home Blankillow provides pure comfort while laying on the sofa. It was designed perfectly to relax and relieve the head, neck, shoulders and spine. No need to move an inch off the sofa to grab a blanket! Simply unzip the seam of the pillow and grab the world’s softest poncho blanket! Whether it’s at home, in a dorm, at the office, or anywhere, Home Blankillow truly is the ultimate key to pure relaxation and comfort. It also acts as a decorative throw pillow on the sofa when not in use.

THE STORY

We are in the final product development stages.  We believe Blankillow will revolutionize everyone's home and travel experience. 

The idea was not born from anything revolutionary. I got so tired of my throw blankets making a mess and falling off the couch or off my shoulder while I'm trying to relax. I folded one in a tiny square and placed it on the sofa, then placed the throw pillow over to cover it up. And BOOM!! The idea for Blankillow was conceived. My team and I spent more than a year designing and redesigning it. We created the travel Blankillow almost immediately, as it would be the most convenient when on the go. We created two specific designs, one for home and one for travel. They are completely different sizes and shapes, but maintain the same exact concept.

We are in the final product development stages. Blankillow is launching for a second time on Kickstarter after first being cancelled for family reasons. We have been working hard on our dream to bring the Blankillow to life!   We have already put countless days and nights into this project. We plan to continue the endless work until we cross the finish line.  "The future starts today, not tomorrow!". St. JP II

Risks and challenges

There are many risks and challenges involved when manufacturing a brand new product for the first time. However, we believe we are already ahead of the game as we have located an excellent manufacturer for Blankillow. We will be diligently working on manufacturing, so the product is not only manufactured with the utmost Blankillow quality, but done in a timely manner.

Obviously, there are delays or issues that arise while in the fulfillment process. We believe that by diligently preparing ahead of time, we can minimize the delays in fulfillment as we work through any such issues.

Communication is the key to any relationship, including the relationship with your dear backers. Thus, we promise to continuously communicate with all of our backers throughout the entire process. We hope to continue our communications even after you are sending us photos of you vegged out while using Blankillow!
