Pillow Pet Giveaway


I can't even begin to tell you the excitement that ran through this house when we got offered a Pillow Pet to review. Every 5 minutes (might be an exaggeration) the commercial would come on TV on both big girls would start dancing around and singing the jingle. I was not swayed by the cute little jingle and obvious fun the "actors" were having with their Pillow Pet. To me, it was just another $20 TV offer.

I was contacted by Pillow Pets and asked to review a Pillow Pet with the added bonus of being able to give one away to one of my readers. Buzz chose the rabbit with the floppy ears (pictured above) and then stalked the mailbox waiting for it to come. When it came, the rejoicing could have been heard for a country mile. I took it out of the package and handed it to her. She immediately launched into the jingle and demonstrating how it was a "Pillow" and then a "Pet". I was amazed at how easily she could manipulate it back and forth and even more...how it stood up to being manipulated back and forth.

The Bunny Pillow Pet is super duper soft and makes a perfect pillow (Trust me...I steal it every night!) but Buzz did chose something white. We all know what happens to something white around kids. Dirt, grime, spills and uh-ohs. I have washed the Pillow Pet probably 10 times already and it has not lost shape or had its fur matted. This toy was truly created for kids and moms!!

Pillow Pets Can Be Spring Cleaners’ Best Friends

Soft and cuddly stuffed animals and pillows in one put the “fun” in “functional”

Cleaning is a rite of spring. As warmer weather approaches, we take to our homes and clear out the old and dusty to make way for the new and fresh. Nowhere is a good cleaning more needed than a child’s room or playroom. It was just this type of annual purge that sparked the idea for the snuggly and loveable Pillow Pets, which provide kids with a cuddly companion as well as the functionality of a full-size pillow.

The concept for Pillow Pets was the ingenious idea of Jennifer Telfer, a San Diego-based mom of two, who was tired of picking up the multitude of stuffed animals lying around her children’s rooms.

“My single goal was to put some functionality into stuffed animals, which took up space and seemed to multiply by the week,” said Telfer. “Pillow Pets combine the utility of a pillow with the playfulness of a stuffed animal.”

Made of ultra-soft chenille, Pillow Pets are extremely popular. With a strap that closes underneath to transform the pillow into a friendly pet, they are an ideal travel pal, naptime buddy and all-around snuggly friend. Pillow Pets are available in jungle animals, farm critters and sea creatures – 20 different animals to choose from.

Pillow Pets are affordable with a “Special TV Offer” of just $19.95 at www.GetPillowPets.com with any additional Pillow Pet priced at $15.95 (up to five) and are machine washable, so they can stand up to a good cleaning of their own any time of year.

About Pillow Pets

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.
