Travel Bug Soft Sided Car Mirror Selected as Good Housekeeping 2024 Family Travel Awards Winner

Denver, CO., Nov. 30, 2023 - GoldBug announced today that its Travel Bug Soft Sided Car Mirror was named as a winner in Good Housekeeping’s 2024 Family Travel Awards. The full list of awards can be found on

The Travel Bug Soft Sided Car Mirror is a must-have travel essential, designed to give parents peace of mind while on-the-go. The mirror is functional for both rear-and-forward facing car seats, providing a clear view of children in the backseat. As part of GoldBug’s safety protocols, this convex, wide-angled mirror is crash tested and has multiple performance enhancing features including a soft frame, shatter resistant mirror, a horizontal and vertical strap system that keeps the mirror secure and webbing that incorporates a UV stabilizer designed to hold up under prolonged daily use.

“We are thrilled to be receiving this honor from Good Housekeeping and for being recognized as a 2024 Family Travel Awards winner,” said Sholeh Mirzai, Chief Merchandising Officer of GoldBug. “Our goal is to provide parents and caretakers with smart solutions that make everyday travel more enjoyable. Winning a Good Housekeeping 2024 Family Travel Award reinforces our mission to create products with great care, quality and intention bringing ease and comfort to parents.”

Good Housekeeping testers said that the Soft Sided Car Mirror is sturdier than other car mirrors and noted, “It doesn’t move while driving, which is sometimes challenging with other mirrors.” One tester stated that the mirror stayed put despite being “kicked and hit by thrown toys.” Users of the Soft Sided Car Mirror also love that the product is lightweight and flat, making it easy to pack in a suitcase.

Travel gear was evaluated in the GH Institute Labs and on the go during real-world travels.

Judges considered durability, ease of use, comfort, convenience, innovation, performance and

other factors. Testers experienced destinations, attractions and travel services to provide

insight into aspects like family-friendliness, service level, amenities, activities, inclusivity,

sustainability and more.
