My Pillow Pets: The Cutest And Most Adorable Pillow Pets - Best Christmas Children Gift Ideas

Updated on October 29, 2013

Every kid craves to have a cute friendly pet that he or she can snuggle to sleep every night. Unfortunately, not every Mom and Dad will agree to bring a dog to bed to sleep with, however tame it may be. So, if you have a child who wants to sleep with a dog or any other pet, and constantly bugs you for permission to, this is the answer to your prayers.

Pillow Pets (aka My Pillow Pets), are cute, huggable pets that are pets by day, but turns into soft and cuddly pillows to lull kids to sleep at night. To turn it into a pillow, simply undo the Velcro clasp (which can be covered by a flap), and it transforms into a pillow. In the morning, just fold it back, and reattach the Velcro, and you have your adorable pet again. No need to feed it, and no cleaning up after it ever. :)

For play time, they make great playing companions, and fit in well with the rest of the toys. Best of all, when the child is sad, all he or she needs is a BIG HUG from a cute Pillow Pets, and the child is all grin and sunshiny again.

There is a Pillow Pets panda, a ladybug, a frog, a dog, a unicorn, a dolphin, a bumble bee, a turtle, and many more. Pillow Pets are great for long car trips, even plane flights, whether as a companion pet, or as a cuddly pillow. They are ideal to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and other special days.

Pillow Pets are made of ultra-soft chenille, and are much more than a stuffed animal. They are so cuddly you'll never want to put it down! The big difference between this and another stuffed toy, is that it is not here to take up space. Also, you don't have to do any picking up after. After all, the company came into existence when its founder, Jennifer Telfer, a mother of two, grew tired of picking up her children's stuffed toys.

Ever child needs a pillow. So why not get one that's fun, provide comfort, security and companionship, as well as bring a big grin to the face. :)

Some Questions You May Have


Where to get Pillow Pets?

You can get Pillow Pets through retal, its manufacturer's site, through TV offers, or through Amazon. Amazon is the most painless, as most people already have an account, and have a good experience buying things from them.

What is the difference between Pillow Pets and My Pillow Pets?
They are both from the same company, marketed under 2 seemingly different brands.

How to tell whether it's the genuine article and not a knock-off?
Buy direct from manufacturer's site. Avoid online auctions, and places where prices seems comparatively cheaper than others. Or get from Amazon.

Be sure to check that the sewn-in label on the back leg of the animal says "My Pillow Pets®", "My Pillow Pets™" or "Pillow Pets™". No other brand name should appear on an authentic Pillow Pets plush folding stuffed animal.

Product Features

-Age 3 and above
-Extra snuggly
-Great as travel companion
-Machine washable fluff dry
-Conforms to ASTN and EN71 regulations
They come in 2 sizes: 11" and 18". But there is not much of a difference between them. Better to get the 18" one as Pillow Pets last long, and in time, the child will be bigger than the 11" Pillow.

Product Care

1. Place your Pillow Pets inside a white pillow case and tie off the open ends. Wash on gentle cycle and cold water.
2. DO NOT PUT INTO DRYER! Let Pillow Pets air dry!

A Final Word


This is a great Christmas gift for kids under 10, under 13, teenage girls, for a girlfriend, or that cute girl you just got to know who's into cute things like Hello Kitty. ;)
And unlike Hello Kitty, you have more choices to choose from. :)

With all the TV ads and kids going crazy over them, this is destined to be one of the best selling toys for Christmas. So place your order early to avoid having to pay a premium just to make the kids happy.
Also, it might have occurred to you that it's best to get 2 for one child - one to sleep on, and one to cuddle with. This will mean less fiddling with the Velcro.

My Pillow Pets has been named one of the "Fabulous Fifteen" on Toys "R" Us "Hot Holiday Toy" List 2010 announced in Sept 2010.

      Animals rae beautiful and we need them, but in the right place, not inside of the house.

      If you could talk to an animal asking what he preferes, house or garden, what you think he will chose.

      This is a good idea for childrens (Pillow Pets)
