It's no surprise that kids love stuffed animals. They're cute, they're cuddly, and they often provide companionship for little ones with active imaginations. Pillow Pets do all of that, and then some! As the jingle goes... "They're a pillow, they're a pet, they're a Pillow Pet".
If your kids are anything like mine, they're always stealing your pillows. At the end of the day, all I want to do is climb into bed, and rest my head on my pillow. That's not always possible when they've already been in my room to snatch them off the bed. By the time I realize it, they're asleep. So, i'm left pillow-less. Doesn't make for a good nights rest lol.
I'll let you all in on a little secret. We actually own a knock off of a Pillow Pet. I thought they would be similar. I was so wrong. They look similar in photos but in person, there is a huge difference. They're made from a low quality material and are no where near as fluffy. It was actually quite flat. You definitely couldn't use it as a pillow. They also don't hold up. We had the generic one for a week and the stuffing started to fall out.
If you take a look at the photo to the right, you'll see my 11 year old, giving her Pillow Pet a squeeze. Notice how big it is? These are quality products!
Since we own a generic one as well as the real deal, I took some side by side photos, so you could see what a drastic different there is in quality. I could tell you all day about how much better a brand name Pillow Pet is, but i'm sure you'd rather you see for yourself. So, here's a side by side comparison.
The one on the left is the actual Lady Bug Pillow Pet. The one on the right is the knock off. The generic one cost me $11, which I thought was a good deal at the time. Now i know better. Especially since the official Pillow Pets are on sale right now! Normally, the large ones are $24.99 (and well worth it), but if you order by April 10th, 2011, they're marked down to $19.99. As an added bonus, Pillow Pets has provided us with a code which will drop the price even lower! Use code BLOGGER and you'll only spend $14.99!! So, for a few dollars more then the generic one, you can get an officially licensed, top quality Pillow Pet. Can I get a heck yeah?!
