Hi, my name is Lauren and I’ve been working at Puckator as a product designer for the last 9 years. I love traveling and following the latest trends, I am always very enthusiastic about sourcing new products. The most exciting product I have worked on is our innovative Relaxeazzz travel cushions for which we won Gift of the Year’s Hot Novelty category in 2020.
These cushions from the outside look like a cute, cuddly child’s plushie but inside they hold a practical secret. Once unzipped they transform into a super comfortable pillow and eye mask combo. Kids love playing with them, and when they’ve tired themselves out, you simply pop the cushion open and off to sleep they go. They are not only great for plane journeys but they’re also perfect for long car trips.
However, they are not just for kids, thanks to the elasticated straps securing the mask in place, they also comfortably fit adults. Trust us we’ve tried! They even come with this super handy clip meaning you can attach them to bags, belts and children for easy carrying!
The original range started with our popular Adoramals and monstarz designs which really suited the shape of the product. They were primarily aimed at the younger market (or the young at heart) but after their commercial success (which we attribute in part to our Gift of the Year win) we’ve greatly expanded the range. We now have a more extensive collection to suit all age ranges, checkout our game over controller and burger designs which are both great for teenagers and adults. We are also pleased to announce we have some fab new designs made in collaboration with our licensee partners. We have the iconic yellow submarine, Simon’s cat and the original stormtrooper. Ready to send you off to sleep on a journey to a galaxy far away.
The Gift of the Year competition certainly helped us propel this unique product to new far-reaching corners. Upon launching the Relaxeazzz at the Spring Fair in 2020 the competition helped garner a huge buzz and excitement not only around the collection itself but also around our show stand. We met lots of enthusiastic new customers, big and small, which was the most worthwhile outcome of our win. We will certainly be entering the Gift of the Year again for many years to come.
