Remember travelling before kids? Tanning, drinking, eating, sight-seeing and flying were easy...and then you have kids and boy-o-boy do they change the whole 'vibe' of a 'holiday'. Sadly, so many families choose not to travel due to the stress and hard work involved.
What was my inspiration to start Kooshy Kids?
The pic below is us...travelling to Bali in 2016...we were 4 hours in to the flight and a volcano erupted, so the plane was turned back around. It was 8 hours in the sky, plus immigration and customs (twice) and we all absolutely exhausted.
The kids were sprawled out all over me so I couldn't sleep and the only way I could get them to sleep was with some Panadol. IT WAS AWFUL!
After our nightmare flight to nowhere, I looked into solutions for making children comfortable on planes and found that there were not many options.
It was then that I decided that I wanted to help parents to regain the confidence to travel and to provide a one-stop-shop for families with innovative, quality travel products that would take the stress out of family travel...and so Kooshy Kids was born.
Since it's launch in 2017, Kooshy Kids has helped over 25,000 families (Australian and beyond) achieve a more relaxing and restful flight experience.
I built a large, loyal following on Social Media where I regular update my tribe on travel updates, flight specials, hacks and general travel advice.
I have won multiple awards, include a People's Choice Product Award...which was extra validation of the superior quality and value of the Kooshy Kids Kooshion compared to other brands.
The Covid Hurdle
We all know what went down in 2020 and 2021 😷...and for a while I thought I would need to shut shop, but thanks to the trust and support of my loyal customers, Kooshy Kids was able to overcome the Covid hurdle and come back bigger and better than before.
I am now back to providing families with the very best family travel goods including a new hygiene range to help to alleviate Covid travel concerns.
I am excited to let you know that I have new products in the pipeline...watch this space!
I wish you safe and "kooshy" travels,
