Review & Giveaway: Pillow Pets!

I love Pillow Pets! I think everyone in my family has one. We even sent it to our nieces and nephew over Christmas! So how can I say no to anyone who asks me to do a review for a pillow pet?!?


If you've never heard about Pillow Pets, well here's the history:

Since 2003, Pillow Pets have been bringing smiles to faces of all ages. The concept for the snuggly companions was the brainchild of a San Diego-based mother of two, who had grown tired of picking up stuffed animals strewn across her children’s rooms. What began with the simple goal of transforming a simple stuffed animal into a functional item for children has grown into an amazing jungle of popular retail and wholesale products. 

They are stuffed toys that can convert from a fluffy animal to a perfect size cuddly pillow for your little one. Your kids can carry them around or pretend they are real animals and then take them straight to nap time and use them as a soft pillow to sleep on. 


Here's some links so you can see how adorable these pets actually are:
  1. Ms. Lady Bug: http://mypillowpets.com/shop/ms-ladybug/
  2. Magical Unicorn: http://mypillowpets.com/shop/magical-unicorn/
  3. Comfy Panda: http://mypillowpets.com/shop/comfy-panda/

  7. Silly Monkey: http://mypillowpets.com/shop/silly-monkey/
  8. Snuggly Puppy: http://mypillowpets.com/shop/snuggly-puppy/
And then of course here's a pic of my family of pillow pets:


My Take: So I decided on the monkey this time. I love monkeys and so do my kids. BUT here's the problem I ran into, both kids love monkeys so who do I give it to? Luckily my stepson was visiting and he saw the kids' pillow pets and asked me for one. Thanks, Pillow Pets for making me look like a super stepmommy. Just look at how much this kid loves this toy:




Of course they are so soft, so snuggly and perfect for anyone. I love how they turn into a pillow and a cuddly toy that even a nine year old isn't embarrassed to carry around. and if they get a little dirty clean them up with a cloth and spray them with febreeze. Works every time! =)
