I was waiting to post a review until I actually used this product. I just took two plane rides - each 4-5 hours on after the other, with a toddler and this was the best thing we purchased for our entire trip. He was able to play and nap on it and when we had an overnight flight coming home, he was able to sleep the ENTIRE time. I had a friend that made that same trip with a 2.5 year old that did not sleep very long at all. While each child is different, I do think this made a HUGE difference. Seriously if you are having any doubts about purchasing, don't! It is AMAZING.
We purchased two flyaway kids beds for our 3 and 5 year-olds for our 9 hour international overnight flight and they worked well. Both of our kids are tall for their age so they both had to sleep curled up in the fetal position, but they were still more comfortable than they would have been just in their seats. The product was easy to inflate and deflate and did not disturb other passengers. We used it in the middle row of four in the plane and the Iberia flight attendants had no problem with it. Both flyaway beds deflated in their individual bags with their pumps as well and then those two small bags fit inside one of our carry-ons along with additional snacks, toys, pajamas and water bottles, so they are very compact to carry-on, even within other carryon bags as we did. I just wish we had purchased this 4 years ago as soon as our babies no longer flew in the aircraft bassinet!
Purchased for my 13 month old (wears 2T though) and he actually napped and slept on our flights to and from Hawaii! He’s not the best sleeper so we were surprised, but happy! It also made the seat safe for him to play when awake. Set up and putting away was easy too which was an added bonus.
after much consideration, i decided to purchase. I am so glad i did. we flew from fort lauderdale to hawaii and it was an absolute life saver for my 3 year old. she slept the entire time and we had barely any issues from flight attendants. they thought it was a pool float and when i explained it is specifically designed for airplanes they were highly intrigued. would purchase and recommend 1000 times.
We were so nervous about flying with our 15 month old daughter for the first time to Hawaii, but with the flyaway bed it was a breeze. She slept 5 of the 6 hours and the bed provided a safe and convenient area for her to play when awake. Highly recommend!
I absolutely loved this! We were the talk of the plane but more importantly my daughter napped for three straight hours on her bed. #Winning
Very good for our long flight
We havnt had a chance to use the product yet, still waiting for repatriation flight to Aus, but I'm sure it will be awesome!
However, there was a mix up from Fedex International on the initial delivery to the UK and the parcel was lost. Despite this, Flyaway kept in contact regularly the entire time. They understood we needed the product urgently, so they sent out a second package swiftly at no extra cost. Arrived within a couple of days and we were very grateful for the excellent customer service.
16-month old baby slept 8-hours on 16-hour long flight and it was also a nice surface to play on the rest of the trip.
We recently flew to Alaska on Alaska Airlines and loved these for our 4 month and 20 month old kids. It gave them a great place to nap and hang out during the flight giving us a break from holding them. Good design and pretty easy to use. Would definitely recommend for air travel with babies and toddlers.
I purchased the bed prior to our international flight with our 2-year old for the first time. He's a very active child so he only slept in it for 2 hours but sitting and playing on it was definitely more comfortable and spacious than if he was sitting on the seat only. Definitely would recommend buying!
It is a saving method for toddlers to rest and travel in long flights! Love it
great product for travel. compact enough when deflated to tuck away in your carry on, quiet & easy enough to pump up during flight, and according to my 3 year old — comfy enough to snooze all flight long !
My babe slept great with this! Also a provides more room for play and no toys falling under the seat. Very easy to inflate, deflate and pack up. I flew alone on a 11 hour flight and this helped so much with our 20 month old.
Our son is 18 months old and pretty tall for his age. He wasn't able to fully stretch out, but still seemed to be sleeping comfortably. He's sleep trained and will not sleep in our arms. We had to buy a seat for him to use this, but it was well worth it. Very happy with our purchase.
Used on JetBlue from San Francisco to new York and back. Will use on KLM to Amsterdam in 2 month.
We have a 1.5 year old who hardly sleeps on planes and this product made our flight so much more comfortable. It’s so clever, easy to use, and light. Totally worth the space in our carry on (it’s about a quarter of a typical carry on luggage). He traveled first class while in an economy seat! Was able to use the tray table to eat and play, and he slept almost his normal length of nap. But even if he hadn’t, he was so comfortable the whole flight. The side bumpers keep the toys in place, the size is long enough to lay down.
We saw another couple use a much bulkier bed, I don’t know the name but it looks like a box of sorts that comes with its own wheels and unfolds to a bed base with a separate thin foam mattress. The flyaway bed looked much easier to transport, set up, and actually use. It’s so comfy, can’t recommend it enough!!
The only minor con is that the hole to inflate the head rest is on the top instead of the sides like for the main mattress. Looks like it would be uncomfortable on the head if he were to lay on it.
1st trip with the flyaway bed and can we tell you it did not disappoint. Our infant was able to sleep peacefully through the flight down and the return flight. Very good purchase!
Our toddler slept his usual 12 hours on our overnight flight from Dallas TX to Sao Paulo with United Airlines! We didn't have any problems using it and no flight attendants said anything to us about using it on the flight. Love this product! Especially as our toddler only sleeps on his belly.
We have a 2.5 year old and it worked perfectly. Even the flight attendant was happy to see how it worked and said she would mention it to others. We are glad we bought it. It made our long flight more comfortable as we were able to rest and sleep as well.
Really good in you are on a flight 2+ hours
I bought this since my almost 2 year old likes to have her own space and completely lay flat while sleeping. We used this on our trip from Reno to Orlando and will use it on every flight until she outgrows it. Also, several flight attendants thought it was the neatest thing they had ever seen and planned on sharing the product with their friends with kids!
My son really enjoyed his “First class bed”
Easy to use , probably the best of its kind of product on the market .
We used this for our 15 month old on a four hour Southwest flight. Setup was a breeze, it for perfectly (just don’t inflate the headrest), and was so sturdy our daughter slept an hour and we kept it up the rest of the flight for her to have a comfortable place to sit and stretch out. We covered it with her blankets for a makeshift play area. I’m SO glad I got this. Worth every penny. Putting it away was super easy, too. It was easy to deflate and fit easily back into its bag. 12/10 would buy again.
