#CarSeat Organizer, Seat Belt Pillow, and Window Shade #Travel Set #Review.

     My van is out of commission, I've actually just been told that it's permanently out of commission.  My disappointment can not be understated, I love that van.  But while it's been in the shop, I've been using Broofy's van for errands and appointments.  Its... different.  Than mine.  It's not the same, and I don't like it.  I just don't.  I could list a million reasons why it's not my cup of tea, but first on that list is that it's made for tall people.  Tall seats, tall buckles.  Ugh!
     Don't get me wrong, I'm super grateful that we're a two-vehicle family.  I can't imagine what I would do at home all day and every single day with no errands to run or places to be.  I've been home most of every day for a month or so and I'm pretty close to going AWOL.  I love that I can get even a quick trip down town with his van.  But I'm not tall.  I will NEVER be tall, my kids mostly won't be tall.  My husband... he's tall.  I doubt he's even noticed how incredibly uncomfortable his van is for us shorties.
     A few weeks ago, Streaker was commenting on this.  She told me something in the way of, "Mom, these seat belts hurt my neck!".  I told her, "Oh no, Honey... you just need to adjust them so they are the lowest they can get".  I may or may not have been readjusting my own seat belt for the thousandth time that ride while telling her this.  Surprise!  Her seat belt WAS the lowest it could get.  Just as mine was.  That's what a seat belt adjuster is for, but I don't think his van has any.  It was bought used.  Solution?
     This awesome seat belt pillow.  It's like a stuffed animal that protects your neck from the belt.  He's a giraffe and his name is Gerry.  He comes with an awesome kick mat/seat organizer and a set of window sun shades.  Let's look at Gerry first.  He's adorable, no?  He is, he's so cute.  Those little blue Velcro covers are what hold Gerry onto the seat belt.

     Besides that, he's got two pockets in the front to hold a cell phone, small toy, crayons, etc.  He also has a pretty neat pocket in his side that has a zippered closure.  It goes all the way through to the other side.  This pocket is an especially nice feature because if the kid moves from one side of the car to the other, they can still access their stuff.  It's such a smart design!

     The kick mat is pretty great too.  It comes in the same color scheme as Gerry himself and his face and name is printed on the front of it.  
      It's got two big front pockets.  The top one is for a tablet and has side holes for the headphone jack to go into.  We found a spot that was just right for where our headphones needed to be plugged in.  There are holes on both sides and both bottom corners.  The tablet you see in the photo is 7" and there is plenty of surrounding space.  You could also use it to house a secondary DVD screen or just to put a photo of loved ones.

     The bottom pocket has a Velcro strap closure and is perfect for books, activity pads, the headphones, or lots of other things.  The Velcro strap prevents the pocket from gaping open like many organizer pockets will do sometimes.

     It also has two sets of side pockets.  The top side pockets are great for small things like a phone, coin purse, charging cords, snacks, etc.  They are not too small, but not big like the bottom side pockets.

     The bottom pockets are cup holder pockets.  I like that it has one on each side, I want my kids to always have plenty of water nearby so we don't give into the slushie run.

     The window shades are pretty awesome in their own right.  They don't require any suction cups.  It has a window cling type surface that sticks itself to the window without any extra assistance.  It acts just the way that decorative window clings that you use to decorate for the holidays does.

     They are cute and match the kick mat and Gerry.  It's got an SPF rating of 30 and is semitransparent, so the child can still see through the window.  This whole set exceeded my expectations and I recommend it for any parent with a vehicle.
