EarPlanes are disposable earplugs designed to alleviate ear problems during takeoff and landing in planes. The earplugs are effective but they need to be worn for quite a while before takeoff and landing which may be difficult for children. Also, they tend to block out a lot of noise which some people may not like. However, it is probably worthwhile for people who have a cold, sinus problems or allergies. A bottle for babies or chewing gum for those old enough are also know to help equalize pressure.
