So what if


traveling stuffed-animal pillows

are marketed for kids? Some grown-ups would be delighted to rest their weary heads on the big, soft micro-bead-

stuffed head of Hada the Hippo or Bing the Bumblebee, or one of 11 other colorful plush beasts and bugs.

And who wouldn't like to cuddle up in the 53-inch-by-34-inch zip-off fleece blanket stuffed into each creature's squishy body? I figure the airlines won't count my stuffed animal in my carry-on allowance - just try taking away my security blanket. Machine washable and dryable.

Zoobies stuffed animal pillow/blankets are $34 at; 1-888-966-2438.
