We just took a 5 hr flight from LAX to Honolulu w/our 2.5 yr old who is quite tall for her age. This was our first flight where she got her own seat so the whole cushion thing was experimental for us. Needless to say, the koala kloud held up to the expectations and was a useful tool to have in our backpack when it came time to napping on the plane!
How it worked for us:
Because my daughter on the longer side (as a toddler), she would lay her head on our lap and then spread her legs out. It worked perfectly for me to actually sit across both our seats and prop my legs up in the cushion so we could both sleep comfortably at the same time.
She also used it as extra comfort with the tray table down and when watching in-flight entertainment.
Some things to note:
1- The kloud has own inflation spout but with 2 enclosures. If you enclose the black portion it makes it much faster to inflate by mouth. When you pull off both enclosures the whole thing deflates pretty quickly. I’ve attached some videos for reference.
2-when fully inflated, it’s quite snug when you stuff it in front of your chair on an economy row. I would say you could almost deflate it a tad if you wanted to.
3- you can also turn it horizontally and just use it as a headrest on your table tray. I saw an adult do that on our flight to take a nap!
4- it’s sturdy, easy to inflate and deflate, easy to quickly fold up and stow away once your flight is finished.
5- the additional drawstring cover to keep things sanitary is a plus! I didn’t realize the cushion came with this but am so happy I had it cause it puts germaphobes (like me) more at ease.
