Bosco Bear Pillows Make a Great Holiday Gift for Little Ones


Pillow Fight!

The other day I got a very squishy package from Bosco Bear in Australia.  My kids jumped around me like kangaroos (after I told them where the package was from and what kind of animals lived there) while I ripped open the packaging.  Inside were 3 very cute, very colorful kid cushions.  One for each of them!

After lots of trading around, each kid had their own cushion.  And the games began!  There were 3 days of giggling, pillow fights, and animal sounds.  (We got the Farm Yard Cushions.)  There have been several nights of snuggling, yawning, and sleeping with the cushions at night.  And during naps.  One of my boys could not sleep without his “Sheep Sheep!”

What We Love:

  • The bright fun patterns!  We got the Farm Animals but there are Dinosaurs, Jungle Animals, or Butterflies to choose from.  No matter what your decor, there is a 3 cushion set for you.
  • The durability.  I’m not joking when I said that my kids fought with these pillows for days.  Even I got in the middle of the melee a few times.  The cushions did not loose their shape or their puffiness due to the heavy beating my children inflicted on them (and me.)
  • Washable.  My “Sheep Sheep” boy carried his around with him.  And insisted on taking it to the park with us.  It got dropped in the mud and trampled on a bit before I could rescue it.  I just took a damp cloth to the mud when we got home and it looks good as new.

What We Don’t Love:

  • I don’t love that they are not made of cotton.  I believe the cushions are made from some kind of polyester blend.  While the kids don’t seem to mind, I prefer my cushions to be cotton.

These cushions are a bright, fluffy spot in our rooms.  Let them brighten up your own rooms!
