There aren’t too many mothers who haven’t heard of Pillow Pets. “They’re a pillow, they’re a pet, they’re a pillow pet!” A jingle that is song often is worth it’s weight in gold. Hand it to Pillow Pets because their jingle is sang through out my house on numerous occasions. So I wasn’t surprised when Pillow Pets topped Honey’s birthday list in November.
When I was asked to review a Pillow Pet here at Shibley Smiles I jumped at the chance. I was even more excited to find out we would be able to review some games as well. Pillow Pets has just exploded with new items based around the Pillow Pet family. Items such as the Dreamland Games, Hats, and Slippers.
We chose to review the Snuggly Puppy. I have not yet decided who to bestow this cuddly animal/pillow on yet. Surprisingly both my sons ages 13 and 10 have asked for a Pillow Pet for Christmas they just don’t want anyone else to know.
I have to say at the age of 36 I wouldn’t mind my own Pillow Pet, seriously they are so soft, softer then my own pillow. It is no wonder these are showing up in many top toy list of 2010.
The recipient of the 2010 Top 10 Holiday Toys for Toys R Us and selected “Hot Dozen” by FunFare Magazine, Pillow Pets continues to win accolades including the coveted iParenting Media Excellent Product award, the Mr. Dad Seal of Approval, and Dr. Toy Best Vacation Products.
Both Honey’s Buzzy Bumble Bee and the Snuggly Puppy are the larger Pillow Pets. The pillows are just the right size for children. The velcro that attaches the pillow sides together to form the stuffed animal is sturdy and I have no fear of it coming lose or falling off. Another great feature, especially considering it’s multiple uses children can find for it, is that it is machine washable on gentle cycle. Dryer use is not recommended.
You can see here that Honey still loves her Buzzy Bumble Bee and sleeps with it often. She even brought it to Grandma’s house a couple of weekends ago. It is the perfect sleepover companion.
In addition to Snuggly Puppy we were given the chance to review the new Dreamland games.
Pillow Pets fans will enjoy hours of fun as they match the “pillow” to the “pet” in Pillow Pets Dreamland™ Matching Game. Honing memory skills and focus, players compete to collect matches amongst 30 “pets” including Ms. Ladybug, Cozy Cow, Friendly Frog, and Silly Monkey, and their corresponding “pillows”. The player with the most “pillow and pet” matches wins. Recommended for ages three and older, Pillow Pets Dreamland™ Matching Game is for one to four players and retails for approximately $10.
We decided to break out the matching game and give it a try. One thing Honey loves is a good board game. I have to say we have purchased and played many matching games. Nothing irritates me more then a memory game that is too easy. The ones that have four of the same photo. Pillow Pets Dreamland Matching Game had 60 cards which is 30 different matches. It was definitely just the right level of challenge and fun. My daughter had such a great time playing this game with her and her brother. I use to pride myself on these types of game but lets just say I’m not match for Honey and Buddy. I was amazed at the age of 5 how good Honey’s memory was. Buddy well memory games are his forte!
My Pillow Pets is giving one lucky winner their choice of Pillow Pet (Snuggly Puppy, Magical Unicorn, or Ms. Ladybug) as well as both Dreamland Adventure and Matching games.
