About

Does this sound familiar? You're driving in the car with your kids, dreading the long journey ahead. Suddenly all is quiet, they've fallen asleep and you breathe a sigh of relief. Phew! But then you glance in the mirror and witness the horror! Their poor tiny bodies slumped over in uncomfortable positions, their precious little heads thumping against the side of the car with every bump you hit. You frantically search for something to jam underneath them - a jacket, or perhaps a blanket? Nothing is working! Maybe you accelerate while changing lanes in the hopes the force will shift them into a more comfortable position (not recommended). What will you do? Have no fear, the answer is here!

Introducing Boosterpalz™ The Portable Pal Who Won't Let You Down!™

Don't delay, now's your chance to grab hold of our LIMITED EDITION First Run BoosterPalz -exclusively on Kickstarter!

BoosterPalz Mission - Whether preparing for a long journey or just looking for a snuggle buddy, BoosterPalz are the ideal travel companions. Our extremely versatile pillows make every trip a comfortable one. BoosterPalz provide a soft cushion, non-confining level of support around the neck; in addition to a supportive plush body which keeps the child from hunching forward or falling sideways. No matter which way your child falls asleep, BoosterPalz is there to help give them that needed "boost" of support!

Design & Function - Our primary goal was to make a pillow that was easy enough for a child to use on their own. As most parents can attest, attempting to hook something up to the backseat, or attach to the seat belt while "a vehicle is in motion" is NOT ideal or safe. Sure, you can always put it on beforehand, only then to have your child scream or complain about wanting it off before your travel has even begun. With BoosterPalz, your child can easily place use the pillow themselves without any help.

We went through various prototype designs before finalizing on this one. The major factors for us were a) creating a pillow that did not confine around the child's neck tightly ( I don't know about you, but after reviewing some of the products available, they looked like they were putting kids into a "choke hold," which gave us anxiety) and b) we didn't want anything that would interfere or attach to the seat belt for various safety reasons.

BoosterPalz hands are magnetic for easy open & close functionality. When not using your BoosterPalz for those long trips, they can also be used as a comfy pillow for your child to sleep on. Or flip your BoosterPalz© around and use them as a back support on chairs or other seating situations

BoosterPalz come equipped with a front pocket; designed to store snacks, toys, handheld games or little hands that want to stay warm.

Each BoosterPalz will come with an Authentic Limited Edition Hang Tag & Certificate which will be stamp embossed and numbered.

Risks and challenges

Our risk lies with 2 factors. The first being the cost of production on such a large scale. Our lovely manufacturing company gave us a great deal to get this BoosterPalz line up and running, however due to a strict manufacturing cycle, we will need to order higher quantities for the next fulfillment, which basically means a large amount of cash upfront.

The 2nd risk was upfront cost for our patent. Right now we have officially filed it however the cost of this has set us back some and delayed funds towards additional production. Thank you ridiculously high lawyer fees!

This is why we are turning to Kickstarter. We hope to raise the funds needed and get early interest in our product.

We are currently developing our distribution plan and looking for suitable retail outlets so if you have any ideas, please let us know!
