Kids and their constant need for a screen isn’t an issue that is going away anytime soon. Kids just love to spend time on their phones and tablets, whether that’s playing games or watching videos. The best we can do is try to manage their usage. Not only the amount of time that they spend using them but how they use them. Holding a phone or a tablet and looking down at a screen for long periods of time can be bad for your health, it puts stress on your neck, back and wrists. Using a tablet cushion stand resolves this problem, putting the screen at a good viewing height whilst leaving your hands free. If you are going to viewing videos on a handheld device, why not do it in comfort.

All their products feature a fun and charming character who come with an associated story on the 100% recyclable packaging (no plastic used) to create awareness on how children can help to protect the planet and endangered animals.

PEPPER THE PENGUIN
Hi! I’m Pepper the Penguin. I live in Antarctica, the coldest place on Earth! I depend on sea ice for places to nest where hundreds of us huddle together in a big group to keep warm against the cold. Brrr! Sea ice is also a platform that helps me to dive deep into the ocean to catch tasty fish. But climate change is causing our home to disappear…
How you can help:
- Turn off lights when you leave a room
- Choose glass bottles instead of plastic
- Help us to keep our environment clean by picking up litter
- Spread the word!
Overall, we love the Pepper the Penguin tablet cushion stand. It comes in its own bag with string tie cord and printed with soy based inks, there is absolutely no plastic used in any packaging. The cardboard tag gives some details about the animal character and what you can do to help with climate change, conservation and to help protect the animals and the planet.
The cushion itself is very soft, wipe clean 100% polyester in vibrant child-friendly colours with your chosen animal character. The cushion features two discreet pockets where you can store a phone, earphones, charger of even a portable powerbank. It has a snap clip hook so that kids can clip it on to a backpack and take it with them.
Using the cushion is simple. Just adjust the bean bag into position and place your tablet or phone on it in landscape or portrait mode. The cushion feels quite secure and does an excellent job of holding your device, leaving your hands free and the device at a more comfortable eye level. No more hunching over a screen.
Planet Buddies have also partnered with World Land Trust and Marine Conservation Society whereby a proportion of revenue from each sale is donated to each charity respectively to support their various projects.
We think that the tablet cushion is an excellent simple and effective way to use a tablet or phone for playing games, watching videos, video games etc. and helps raise awareness of environmental issues. It raises the devices to a better eye level so that you are not hunched over looking down at a screen, it means you don’t have to always be holding the device and it looks cool. It doesn’t even have to be used for tech items either, it can be used as a cushion for holding your books when reading or even in the kitchen to prop up a recipe book. It can even be used as a cushion for your head should you require one. The backstories of each animal character bring them to live and help educate children about saving the planet. All the packing is eco-friendly and money from each sale goes to conservation charities to help protect the planet.
