Pillow Pets are one such favoured item. She's been banging on about them to me ever since she first heard of them. As luck would have it, I was offered one to review. I was secretly hoping to keep it hidden for the next fortnight so I could present it to her on her birthday, but, as only a 3 year old girl can, she bounced up and down constantly shouting "What's in the box? What's in the box? Whatsintheboxmummmmmmy?"
Yes, I am weak. I gave in. She got her Pillow Pet earlier than planned.
Talk about love at first sight! Ms Lady Bug has been everywhere with her since the moment she came out of the box. Her regular pillow was quickly relegated; she's become an ever-present car companion; she's been star of the nursery show and tell, and she's even been a comfy seat while watching a film!
Pillow Pets are a premium quality plush toy. Super soft, cuddly chenille make them irresistible. With the concealed velcro strap, they quickly transform from a cuddly animal, into a comforting pillow. A reassuring friend for nap time; car journeys; overnight stays or just for playtime.
Eight different animals are now available in the UK from Mookie Toys. Choose from Silly Monkey; Playful Penguin; Comfy Panda; Snuggly Puppy; Magical Unicorn; Wiggly Pig; Bumbly Bee and of course Ms Ladybug. There will also be a range of special pets coming out in time for Easter.
Priced at £19.99 they are available from Toys R Us and Amazon.
Disclosure: We were sent a Pillow Pet for the purposes of this review. However, and opinions expressed are my own.
