It’s A Pillow. It’s A Pet. It’s A Pillow Pet


My children have been begging for Pillow Pets for the past month and a half. Not only that, but they constantly walk around the house singing the Pillow Pets jingle. The catchy tune is constantly stuck in my head. You should hear us on some days, as we dance around the kitchen singing, “It’s a pillow. It’s a pet. It’s a Pillow Pet.”

Next month we are driving across two states to spend Christmas with our parents in Arizona. I was already planning on surprising the older kids with their very own Pillow Pet to take with them on the long car ride. I thought that it would be perfect for them to cuddle and rest against, espcially at night.

pillowpet1When Pillow Pets wrote us and asked us to hold a giveaway, I was ecstatic. I had them send an adorable Snuggly Puppy Pillow Pet to review with me three-year-old son.

Oh, I wish you could have seen the excitement when he opened it up. I had to assure my daughter that we will be purchasing a Magical Unicorn Pillow Pet for her soon, and she is doing a great job of patiently waiting.

My son carries his Pillow Pet all over the house, usually while singing the fun Pillow Pets jingle. He adores his Pillow Pet and sleeps with it every night.


Winner of a 2009 iParenting Media Excellent Product Award and the 2009 Dr. Toy Best Vacation Product Award, Pillow Pets are much more than a stuffed animal. 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 cuddly friend.

Pillow Pets are available in jungle animals, farm critters and sea creatures โ€“ 20 different animals to choose from โ€“ and are made of ultra-soft, machine washable chenille.

Budget friendly, Pillow Pets are just $19.95 when purchased online at, with any additional Pillow Pet priced at $15.95 (up to five).

    Oh my gosh, those are the cutest things!!! I’d never seen those before.

    (This is Susan here, so don’t enter me in the draw… I just had to say how much I love that idea.)

  2. Glenda Kiesewetter says

    I hope I did it right (post the button on my sidebar) My daughter is in love with Pillow Pets and is making her Christmas list now….

    I would like to nominate Angela Farooqui and her daughter Taniya. They are caring for 3 small children whose mother is hardly ever around. Taniya is 18 and a college student. The kids’ are a 4 year old boy, 3 year old girl, and a 18 month old boy. Angela is on disability and works as the apartmen t manager at her complex to get rent reduction. I know they go to food pantries quite a bit for food. Angela does not ask for alot of help because she believes there are people in the world that are worse off than her and her family. I am proud to say I know this woman because she is strong and determined.

    I saw these advertised and thought it was a great idea. This would be great to have to travel the 300 miles with my daughter to my parents house.
