It's three months after the holiday season and my guess is that all across the country there is one gift that is still being used and loved just as much as it was from the moment it was unwrapped.
Because unlike some toys that have now been discarded or clothes that are already outgrown, kids never get tired of something as lovable and cozy as Pillow Pets.
If you aren't already familiar with Pillow Pets... then I'm not sure where you've been lately. Launched in 2003, these soft, high quality chenille adorable plush pals are also comfortable pillows that kids can use anywhere.
Leave this cuddly buddy folded and it's a huggable, snuggly stuffed animal that provides security and friendship. 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.
Already huge fans of our previous Pillow Pets, it didn't take more than one glance at Comfy Panda for Big Sister E and Little Sister B to be ready to show him just how much they cared.
Along with the extreme softness, I appreciated that Pillow Pets created Comfy Panda so that he is machine washable - because all of that love will need to be cleaned off once in a while. How can they resist kissing and hugging something so cute?
Plus, due to their commitment to reaching high standards and manufacturing products that parents can be glad to give to their kids, I am always glad to see the small piece of fabric that covers the scratchy Velcro when opened in pillow form.
With the popularity of Pillow Pets going strong in our house and around the country, the collection has been expanded (there are a few new dinosaurs that I know Big Sister E would love!) to include even more great ways to enjoy your best friend. The backpacks and hats would be perfect for taking with to school and the blankets and slippers are just right for relaxing at home.
Plus, the new Pillow Pets website now has fun games to play right online with these furry pals, as well as a Pillowpedia section to learn about the animals, where they live, and more.
With a mission to bring smiles to faces of all ages by offering friendship, love, and loyalty as well as providing a comfy, snuggly place to rest your head day or night, Pillow Pets are a great gift for any time of year...
