Designed in Spain, the cozy cocoon fits snugly over the head and neck while leaving a large opening for the nose and mouth. The pillow allows users to tune out their surroundings, creating a dark, quiet micro-environment ideal for achieving a restful sleep whether stranded in a crowded airport, recharging between meetings at work or during “Drums/Space” at Dead & Company concerts.
Pockets over the ears muffle ambient sound and serve as a place to tuck hands while leaning forward over a tray table or desk. The soft pillow cradles the head with more than 4″ of hypoallergenic stuffing and collapses for easy packing and storage. It can also be used as a standard pillow. Includes storage bag.
And chances are damn good that if you’re wearing one of these, nobody – repeat, nobody – is gonna bother you…
Finally, a chess variant board has been developed that accommodates three players – without compromising any of the rules, strategies or competitive challenges that make chess such a beloved game. And Three Player Circular Chess adds one more massive wrinkle: the circular board. But don’t worry, there are trajectory lines crossing through the center to help guide piece movement (and, of course, instructions, too).
