My preschooler and toddler like to lug their favorite stuffed animals with them when we travel. In the spirit of space-saving, I started to wonder how I could make their stuffed bunnies and puppies do double duty (a travel pillow? a lumbar support?). But the folks at Warm Whiskers beat me to it. Their sweet little Pocket Critters can be zapped in a microwave for 30 seconds and then used as a hand warmer, or chilled in the freezer for 10 minutes to soothe bumps and boo-boos. The 4 1/2-inch-tall plush animals are filled with flaxseed, chamomile, and lavender, so they smell lovely (and just might help lull your little one into a nap while in transit). They cost $12 each and come in five styles online at www.warmwhiskers.com or call 800-233-0201.
