The idea isn’t necessarily new but Ontel Products has made it great with the creation of Pillow Pets. The idea of course is combining the security of a stuff animal with the function of a pillow. We all know kids love to cuddle, and Pillow Pets allows them to do that while they sleep because these pets are also a pillow.
Anytime a child has to lay down, Pillow Pets are there as foldable creatures ready for a good cuddle. It can be during playtime, naptime, or of course, bedtime. Children can quickly convert an 18 inch fuzzy friend from a pillow to a stuffed animal just by opening or closing a Velcro strap that is set across the animal’s belly.
And you’re not limited to just a couple of cuddly friends to choose from. There are dozens of different pets on the market, and that means it will be easy for you to find one your child will love. Does your child love wild animals? You can pick from lions, tigers, bears, giraffes and more. There’s puppies and ladybugs, and even unicorns. Cuddling up with a stuffed animal is one way children feel safe and secure. Cuddling up with an animal they love that they can also sleep on makes it even better.
One of the more popular Pillow Pets is the lavender unicorn. Pleasant dreams await as your child snuggles up with the soft cuddly fur. And parents will love the fact that the super soft chenille material is machine washable in a gentle cycle. However remember not to put your pillow pet into the dryer.
Another kids favorite is the Pillow Pets Panda. Like most of these animals, it measures 18 inches and has the Velcro closure.
And remember that Pillow Pets don’t have to be used only in the home. In fact, they are absolutely great for traveling. Think about how useful it will be in the car on a long road trip. Your child will have his favorite animal to keep him company on the journey, and then have a pillow that they can use when you reach your destination. And they are great for use on airplanes for those same reasons.
And if your son or daughter sometimes has a hard time falling asleep at night, Pillow Pets can be helpful there too. If a child is afraid of the night, having their pillow animal with them will help them feel more secure as they get under the covers.
I’m sure you remember the character Linus from the Peanuts comic strip. Linus always carried around his favorite blanket. Well children still do that with a favorite stuffed animal or blanket. You can expect your child’s Pillow Pets to become that security blanket.
And just like Beanie Babies and Webkinz before, look for Pillow Pets to possibly become collectible items. They will likely become more collectible every year and some parents have already started purchasing them for themselves.
It’s pretty easy to see why Pillow Pets will be a hot item this Christmas. In fact they will likely remain hot throughout the year. Anything that children love and helps them feel secure is always a big seller.
