Bumpidoodle Pillows with Personality {Review & Giveaway}

Bumpidoodle logo
{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Michele P!}

I often think that the world would be a happier place if making friends came as easily to adults as it does for children.

We head to the park and Little Sister B is immediately friends with another girl simply because they are both playing on the slide. Big Sister E heads to preschool and comes home raving about how great it was to play with one of the boys in her class due to them being paired up together on a project.

And, for both of my kids, that ease of friendship extends to inanimate objects as well. A baby doll or a stuffed animal needs only to have been in our house for a few minutes and the girls are already in love with carrying them, feeding them, hugging them, and loving them.

Therefore, as soon as I was introduced to the concept behind a Bumpidoodle and the way that these pillows with personality were designed to for both play as well as cuddles, I knew that they would be an instant new best friend.

Bumpidoodles

A one-of-a-kind, ultra-plush floor cushion, a Bumpidoodle is soft and cozy like a favorite stuffed animal and big and comfy like a bean bag chair. Whether for playtime, naptime or nighttime, kids of all ages will enjoy these large stuffed pillows for standing, laying, sitting, playing, snuggling, and more.

Available in six cute animal characters — Dillon Dog, Ellie Elephant, Leonard Lion, Mason Monkey, Parker Pig and Toby Turtle — the hardest part about selecting a Bumpidoodle pal is deciding which adorable friend to bring home! Considering how lovable all six of the options are, I wasn't surprised when Big Sister E and Little Sister B were only too thrilled when Parker Pig showed up at our door.

Bumpidoodle review

Although I had known from the description that Bumpidoodles weren't small, it wasn't until Parker was fully out of the box that I realized the true size of these pillows (30" wide x 24" high x 20" deep). As well as being lightweight and very soft, it wasn't hard to see that all of the small details that went into creating this stuffed pig came together just right.

From his moveable ears to his floppy feet to his curly piggy tail to his endearing, sweet face, Parker is clearly styled to be so much more than just another stuffed animal.

Bumpidoodle Pig review

Right away the girls were happy to check out Parker's ultra-plush fabric, soft fleece accents and cozy polyester fill by alternating between jumping, riding, rolling, diving and hugging him... and they haven't stopped since.

In fact, it's a very common occurrence around here to walk into the play room and find one of my kids simply lounging around and enjoying the comfort of Parker's company.

And, if not one of them, then they're both hanging out with him. After all, there's enough of Parker's soft, squishy cuteness to go around!

Kids floor pillow

Bumpidoodles really are a unique and fun idea for kids of all ages (they are designed for ages 2+). Whether you're shopping for a toddler or a teenager, the whole family can get in on the Bumpidoodle love by getting to know their new friend. Each animal even comes with its own card telling new owners about their personality and allowing for creativity and imaginations to come up with future details and adventures from there.

Even better, as all of the Bumpidoodle friends are machine washable, you never have to worry about your child's new friend getting a little too much love (or sticky fingers). Just unzip the durable zipper right on the side, remove the exterior, wash, and lay flat to dry.

Bumpidoodles washable
Now available for $29.99 in the furniture section of Target Stores nationwide, Bumpidoodles are versatile playtime or nighttime companions that hold up well to anything from snuggling to being ridden. Floor cushions will never be the same once Bumpidoodles have been introduced around your home!

Or, no worries if these fun pals seem too large for your space, just keep an eye out for a Bumpidoodle Bitty version that is in the works for the future. Just as cute but at a smaller size (15" L x 7" H x 15" W)!

Thanks to the generosity of Bumpidoodle, one person will be able to see the engagement and imagination that these characters provide while fulfilling their role as a loveable best friend, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of Bumpidoodle!

Since it really doesn't matter which one I like, I know that my son would go bananas for the piggy one. I'm sure he would "mush" it as much as baby-ily possible.
