What is a My Pillow Pet?

My Pillow Pets are toys for small children ages 3 and up.  They are a two for one product, meaning they double as a pillow and a stuffed animal.  They begin life as stuffed animals and have Velcro closures that when removed, open up into a pillow.   Close them up and you have a cuddly stuffed animal again.  My Pillow Pets act as a great toy, security blanket, and stuffed friend for your little one.  They are very soft and plush, and come in a variety of colors and styles.  There are different animals to choose from; there will sure to be one that your little boy or girl will fall in love with!

Are My Pillow Pets only for Children?

Absolutely not!  In fact, My Pillow Pets are just as popular for teenagers and adults as they are for children.  There are literally hundreds of reviews online from both teens and adults who bought the stuffed animals for children as gifts and ended up buying one for their own use.  They are also not limited to the human species…pet owners buy My Pillow Pets for their cat or dog to use as a toy or for a bed.  A review on Amazon revealed that one lady owns a pet cockatiel that loves the Lavender Unicorn pillow as much as her daughter does!  Even more reviews come from boyfriends and husbands who bought them as gifts for their girlfriends/wives, and say it was one of the best choices for gifts they have made.  Of course, keep in mind that the pets are not recommended for children 3 years or younger.

Are My Pillow Pets Washable?

The verdict is still out on this.  The advertisements for My Pillow Pets state that the items are machine washable; however, people who have purchased them say they have had trouble washing them in the machine.  Some reviews state that after washing in the machine, the pets are no longer as soft as they were before.  This should be taken into consideration for parents who want to buy them for their young children, as they can get dirty quite easily and may not be as easy to clean. 


In conclusion, if you are looking for a sweet and cuddly gift for someone this holiday season, My Pillow Pet will make a great choice for any child, teen, or adult!
