With the timing of my Patriotic My Pillow Pets giveaway last month, the girls and I didn't actually have the opportunity to see the adorable red, white and blue Patriotic Pup in person until right before the giveaway ended. Considering we had done a previous Pillow Pets review, I assumed that this America-themed dog would be just as high quality, entertaining and cuddly soft as the rest of the collection.
Now that he has arrived, we've found that Patriotic Pup is all that and more. He's plush, huggable, comfortable, colorful and really darn cute. But not just regular cute, he's all-out stars and stripes cute.
Made out of the softest chenille, Patriotic Pup celebrates our nation in style with his red fur, blue nose, starry underside and, just in case that wasn't enough, one paw is cleanly embroidered with a bright U.S.A. to complete the overall look. There aren't many more things that could be added to make this Pillow Pet any more patriotic!
But Big Sister E and Little Sister B's favorite part? Why, the luxurious velvety plushness, of course.
As with all of the My Pillow Pets, the inclusion of the durable strap on the bottom of Patriotic Pup makes it easy to transform him between being a traditional stuffed animal and a cushy pillow. I not only appreciate the quality of the strong Velcro but the addition of the added flap of fabric that goes over the hook side of the Velcro when not in use. Considering the number of times that my girls have thrown their faces down on this Pillow Pet, that small piece of fabric has probably saved quite a few scratches from happening on their faces.
Soft, lovable and fun - and don't forget that My Pillow Pets is not just celebrating our country with Patriotic Pup, he also supports our troops as well. For every purchase of these limited edition dogs, $5.00 of the cost ($24.95) is donated to Scholarships for Military Children, a great organization that works to help the children of military personnel.
If your children have been begging for a Pillow Pet, why not purchase one that also gives money to a good cause? But when these Patriotic Pups are gone, they're gone, so if you're thinking of bringing him home, don't wait! For more information or to order, check out the My Pillow Pet Gives website today.
(Other than the My Pillow Pets Patriotic Pup that I was provided, I was not compensated or enticed or to do this review in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion of this product and its cute features.)
