Although my kids have always enjoyed their stuffed animals, none seem to compare to the love and adoration they have for their Pillow Pets! Even just passing by them in the store, both Kaelyn and Kaden stop to blow kisses and give hugs to these adorable, soft and cuddly friends. Who could blame them? Aren’t they adorable?!!
The need for transforming a traditional stuffed animal into a functional item for children came when a San Diego-based mother of two grew tired of picking up stuffed animals all over her children’s rooms. The idea proved to be more popular than ever expected, and for the past 8 years, Pillow Pets has been bringing smiles to children’s faces of all ages and are sold in retail locations across the U.S. Pillow Pets has grown from their initial collection of just six different animals to now offering more than 30 styles and a number of other new products like slippers, hats and blankets.
When I learned we were going to have the opportunity to review another Pillow Pet, I knew the kids would be thrilled. As I browsed through each adorable stuffed animal, I was instantly drawn to Buzzing Bumble Bee.
When Kaelyn and Kaden caught glimpse of Buzzing Bumble Bee, they were smiling from ear to ear. I couldn’t help but smile either! These Pillow Pets just keep getting cuter and cuter!!
We all thought he was adorable and of course, extremely soft! Pillow Pets are made of high quality super soft chenille, making them a cuddly friend children can’t help but want to hug and hold! One thing that makes Buzzing Bumble Bee especially soft is his padded wings on the top of the pillow. This is where both kids love to lay their heads.
What I love about Pillow Pets is that they easily transform from a friendly pet to a pillow. There’s a strap underneath that secures with Velcro. It holds the animal together very well and makes it super easy for the kids to sit with and carry around.
The fact that it’s so versatile means it’s a super travel pal and an all around snuggly friend the kids can take with them wherever we go. I have learned that they are so much more than just a stuffed animal! Pillow Pets make great companions and are a cuddly pal your little one won’t want to put down. Kaelyn and Kaden both carry Buzzing Bumble Bee around everywhere and love laying on it for nap and bedtime.
I would definitely recommend Pillow Pets to any family with young children.
