The Handy Pillow is a functional travel pillow with a breathable pocket for your hand, allowing you to comfortably sleep anywhere, at any time. Perfect for trains, planes, and automobiles (see what we did there?).
Whether you're an adult or child; whether you're using the pillow on your hand or behind your neck; whether you're on a road trip, camping, flying, or on the couch; whether you choose pink, black, or blue--the Handy Pillow is for everyone.
The Handy Pillow is created with the highest quality products on the market, including a plush exterior that might be the softest thing you'll ever touch. Additionally, the Handy Pillow is filled with microfiber, which contours around your face as you sleep.
The backstrap on the Handy Pillow allows you to travel with ease. Simply slip the pillow over your luggage handles, through your backpack straps, or on top of your purse.
The Handy Pillow pocket is made up of a breathable proprietary blend of polyester and spandex to ensure your hand stays cool. No "sweaty hand syndrome" for you!
Worried about your pillow getting dirty during your travels? It's safe to clean in your washer and dryer. Simply follow the care instructions on the tag.
Griffin Sinn and Seth King are Co-Founders of Checkmate Ventures LLC. Together, they have taken the Handy Pillow from an idea to a tangible product. As product-focused entrepreneurs, they are always on the lookout for simple, yet functional solutions to everyday problems.
As frequent travelers, they often struggled to get comfortable when resting their hands on their heads to sleep (they call this "the elbow planted, hand-on-face, head rest problem"). It didn't take long for them to notice that many others struggle with this problem as well. This realization led to their "a-ha!" moment, and the Handy Pillow was born. Since then, Griffin and Seth have perfected the Pillow, so that people everywhere can turn to the Handy Pillow for comfortable travel and lounge.
The Handy Pillow is one of those "Why didn't I think of this?" products. We must hit our $9,500 goal in order to reach minimum order requirements and bring this "handy" product to life. To do that, we need your help to spread the word to the millions of people that would benefit from the Handy Pillow. We ask that you please like and share this project with EVERYONE you know because, after all, an imaginary survey has shown that approximately 7.5 billion people absolutely love sleep.
Thank you to all, and to all a good nap!
