Summer Family Travel Round-up

A big dusty renovator hello if you saw me, Kim Moldofsky, this morning on Chicago Superstation WGN. I showed off a few great summer family travel products. (Looking for my outdoor family safety and fun segment?)

On Reluctant Renovator I write about my family and my house. In addition to writing, I make videos about our renovations and other items of interest. Stay in touch by “liking” Reluctant Renovator on Facebook. And don’t miss out on these great giveaways that I’m hosting in honor of Reluctant Renovator’s first blogaversary!

I typically only provide original content, but because I talked about so many products this morning, I’m snipping from press releases:

Safety Turtle water alert system1)  Safety Turtle

The Safety Turtle Wireless Wristband Alarm is an ingenious combination of wireless signal-outfitted wristband and a wireless base station receiver that sounds an alarm the instant a child falls or ventures into water. Works for pets, too! The base station can be positioned anywhere between pool/waterside and 200 feet away (depending on model desired). $235



2)  DiaperBuds  Diaper buds diapers for travel

Moms invented this unique disposable diaper that comes individually vacuum sealed into a tiny pack, but “blossoms” into a full-sized diaper when opened up.  Pack of 30 for $17, pack of 9 for $6.



kuhi comfort travel pillow3)  Kuhi Travel Pillow

The Kuhi Pillow is another mom-invented product, which is probably why it is machine washable. The Kuhi Comfort Travel Pillow cradles your head on both sides allowing you to rest comfortably against your reclining seat. Helps you get the rest you deserve on a plane, in a car, on a train even at home in your own recliner.  Its versatility invites you to TWIST IT, FLIP IT, TURN IT so you can find your perfect fit.  Sizes for adults and kids.  $39.95


Airbac comfort backpacks4)  Airbac

Airbac is a new type of backpack that uses a patented, built-in air cushion technology to prevent back stress and make wearers feel as if they are carrying half the weight or less, as well as protecting the backpack contents, such as a laptop and other valuable gear. Simply pump the air pocket to the desired level, taking only seconds, and the Airbac’s inflated air pockets surround the contents with a shield of air and allow the pack to spread the weight more evenly throughout the back than a standard backpack, with the majority of the weight distributed to the core muscles of the hips and waist and resting easily on the top of the wearer’s gluteal muscles (rear end). 49.99 – $99.99


5)  Allergy Free Passport Let's Eat Out Allergy free passport

Let’s Eat Out! Allergy Free Passport is a new how-to guide that instructs people with food sensitivities or allergies how to eat what they want, where they want and when they want, no matter how far from home they travel.  Let’s Eat Out! provides information about cuisines, ingredients, preparations, what questions to ask and how to communicate food requirements anywhere in the world. Let’s Eat Out! addresses seven popular cuisines (American, Chinese, French, Indian, Italian, Mexican and Thai) and gives people the tools to enjoy each cuisine anywhere in the world while avoiding 10 of the most prevalent allergens (gluten, peanuts, soy, fish, eggs, dairy, wheat, nuts, corn, shellfish).  The series covers more than 175 specific menu items, 200 breakfast and beverage suggestions, 300 questions to ask and how to say them in the specific language, and much more.  Let’s Eat Out! Allergy Free Passport retails for $24.95.


Thanks for stopping by; bon voyage!
