Tuft & Needle/Instagram
I recently tried mattress company Tuft & Needle 's bean bag chair, the Pouch. It features the company's signature adaptive foam and a soft quilted cover, measures four feet on each side, and weighs over 70 pounds.

Humans and pets of all ages are going to enjoy lounging and relaxing in this large chair - and if...

New Balance
New Balance created a new lightweight, breathable knit sneaker that encompasses comfort, sport, and style - it's called the Fresh Foam Cruz V2 Knit .

I've worn them while doing everything from indoor skydiving (see a picture of me below trying to keep it together mid-air) to working out in a...

A good selection of car toys can keep a child engaged even during long trips; the key is to offer variety without flooding the child with choices.
Whereas screens can interrupt sleep patterns, screen-free toys will keep a child entertained without disrupting the chance for that all-important car nap.
The best car toys must be age-appropriate for your kids, as you will have limited ability to intervene and help from your place in...
