9 of the Wackiest Best-selling Travel Accessories From Amazon
The internet is a weird place — one that’s only made weirder when monetary transactions are involved. (We’re citing the Bitcoin and eBay rabbit holes too many of us fall into when alone at 3 a.m. on a full-mooned Tuesday night — no? Just me?)
While taking a leisurely cyber-stroll around the interwebs, we came across a myriad of travel accessories that are nothing short of interesting. Think: alternatively shaped travel pillows, portable footrests, and accessories designed to fool a pickpocket in the most creative of ways.
Sure, they may be wacky but they are definitely (at least some shade of) genius. Now, where did we find them, you ask? Why, on Amazon, of course, where they really do sell everything from A to Z.
And please don’t get the idea that we’re just trying to spotlight some kooky products, because that’s not true. We’re trying to spotlight some kooky products that are also top-rated bestsellers. You're welcome.
There's a reason why this travel pillow is a certified No. 1 bestseller. Hint: Because it's just that good. Though it may just be a fleece scarf with half a neck brace built in, the Trtl pillow will keep you from literally nodding off to sleep. Sweet dreams (while sitting upright) await.
