Spring is finally here, which means playing at the park, flying kites and my favourite – baby animals! My favourite baby animals are goats, bunnies and ducklings – they are all incredibly cute and their fur/feathers look extremely soft and cuddly. I wish that baby animals would remain so small, soft and cuddly! But unfortunately, they don’t, they grow up to be Mommy and Daddy goats, rabbits and ducks. That is the great thing about plush toys – they are just as cute and soft as the real thing, but never grow up (and you don’t have to feed them – clean up after them… you know all that stuff).
We received the cutest plush toy from Get Pillow Pets. I thought the best pet for the season would be the ducky. I was hoping to receive this in time for Easter, but it was just a few days short! In any case, it was just as pleasant a surprise for my daughter when she received it on a Tuesday afternoon.
So what is a Pillow Pet? Well, it’s a pillow and a plush toy together in one. There is a piece of velcro on the bottom of the pillow pet that converts the pillow to a plush toy. If they want to play with a toy, simply hook up the velcro and they’ve got a cuddly toy that can stand on it’s “feet”. (When the pillow is folded over and the velcro is attached, it looks like the pet has 4 feet).
I was quite surprised to see how large the pillow pet was. It’s 15″ x 19″, which is about the size of the pillows I have on my couch, but it is way puffier. The Pillow Pet is also extremely soft. The tag says it is made of polyester, but I don’t recall polyester ever being so soft. It’s similar to how soft minky fabric is (who doesn’t love minky?).
When the Pillow Pets is laid out flat like a pillow there is a little tiny tab that is placed over top of the rough velcro so it wont be scratchy. I thought this was an excellent added touch, because there is nothing worse than having something scratchy against your skin (like a feater pillow with one of the feathers sticking out on your face while trying to sleep). This will definitely not happen with the Pillow Pets because the velcro is completely covered. If you want to turn the pillow into a pet, it’s super easy, just remove the material on top of the scratch velcro and stick it to the other side, and voilà you have a plush toy now.
The two biggest users of the Pillow Pet in our house is my Mom and my dog. My Mom likes to lay on the Pillow Pet when it is rolled up like a plush toy. She will lay on the couch with in under her neck, it fits perfectly. My dog can be seen laying on the ducky regularly. I will be the first to let you know that my dog ALWAYS finds the most comfortable place to lay in the house. Many times, I will catch her laying on the couch on top of 2 pillows (how does she get 2 pillows on top of each other – she’s a dog!) However, with the Pillow Pet, she will sacrifice her comfortable place on the couch and actually lay on the floor on top of the pillow pet. I have to admit it’s pretty cute. My daughter likes the pillow pet as well. She love carrying around things that are bigger than her, and at only 20 months, this qualifies. However she only seems to get to have it if Granny or Cammy haven’t snagged it up first!
The Pillow Pet is super soft, cute and multi functioning! I am sure when my daughter is a little older she will be sleeping on this comfortable pillow every night, and carrying it around with her as a toy during the day.
