It's a Pillow. It's a Pet. It's a Pillow Pet! {Review & Giveaway} New Easter and Spring Designs

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

Can someone tell me what happened to the time between now and last Christmas? I'm not fully convinced that there really was a January 2010, because that's the only explanation for how Easter could be here already.

What does that mean for my kids? Starting April 5, Big Sister E will be begging for another piece of chocolate or candy every 10 minutes and almost all of the remaining items from their Easter baskets will have been forgotten already. My daughters really do get wonderful things in their baskets, due to the fact that my mother-in-law loves to spoil them, but their interest in the small toys or novelties disappears pretty quickly. Big Sister E is only 3, after all, and Little Sister B has the attention span of, well, a 1-year-old.

However, this year any boring, generic toys have long been replaced by the coolest Easter/spring pal around, our Puffy Duck from Pillow Pets.


Launched in 2003, Pillow Pets are made from the softest, high quality chenille and are not only an adorable plush pal, but a comfortable pillow that kids can use anywhere. Leave this cuddly buddy folded and it's a huggable, snuggly stuffed animal but simply un-Velcro the fabric across the bottom and it becomes a place for kids to rest their head in bed, on the couch or even in the car.

With over 25 styles currently available on their website (they are also sold at mall kiosks, Hallmark stores and specialty stores), there is sure to be more than one Pillow Pets friend for your child to love. For a surprise in their Easter basket that will last long past the day the candy is gone, how would your child like to find Cuddly Bunny (at right) waiting for them?

Both Big Sister E and Little Sister B were extremely excited about Puffy Duck showing up at our house and proceeded to immediately come up with multiple ways to play, hug or rest with it.


Along with the extreme softness, I really appreciated that Pillow Pets are machine washable (ours had multiple nose-wiping incidents within the first hour) and, when opened into a pillow, there is a piece of fabric that covers the Velcro to prevent any scratches. Small touches like that show me that, as a company, My Pillow Pets truly is committed to reaching high standards and manufacturing products that parents can be glad to give to their kids.

Which is a good thing, because after seeing how adorable Puffy Duck is, I can understand how a collection of Pillow Pets could get started. After all, how could you leave behind other members of the cute jungle, farm or sea that you've begun?

From one mom's vision of transforming a traditional stuffed animal into a functional item for her children, Pillow Pets are now found and loved all over the world - they even have multiple awards to prove it. To celebrate Easter, spring or a great gift for any occasion, these cuddly pals are a soft and adorable choice. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will bring home a new snuggly friend, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of adorable Pillow Pet! ARV $19.95!
