Valentine Pillow Pets ~ review & giveaway

***This contest is now closed.  Thank you to everyone who participated.  The winner is April E. – commenter #128.  Congrats, April!

Pillow Pets - Valentine's  - Dog Pet I’m still having a hard time believing that we’re in 2011.  Yet, here we are, at the end of January, with February and Valentine’s Day approaching quite quickly.  In honor of the upcoming holiday of love, I’d like to introduce you to the newest additions to the Pillow Pets family.

Pillow Pets - Valentine's Kitty_pet Luv Pup and Luv Kitty join the Pillow Pets line-up just in time to share with that special someone on your Valentine’s gift list. 

We were able to select one for review. I gave Gracie the option, since she is the stuffed animal lover in our family.  She chose the Luv Pup, and it didn’t take long for him to fit right in around here.

Now, instead of having two dogs to hang out with her, she’s got three!  She named her Luv Pup Valentino, and he travels around the house with her – going up to bed with her at night (yes, she uses him as a pillow in bed) and coming down in the morning to spend the day with us downstairs.  He’s so soft and cuddly that I’ve been second-guessing giving him to Gracie and wishing I would have selfishly kept him for myself!

Here’s some information about the new Valentine Pillow Pets, direct from the manufacturer - - -

Pillow Pets™ brand products were among the most popular gift items for children this past holiday season. Imagine the joy from the children in your life when they receive a limited edition red dog with a big heart for a nose or a cozy red cat with a belly covered in hearts.

“Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a soft, snuggly Pillow Pets plush folding stuffed animal” said Jennifer Telfer, CJ Products’ CEO. “Our limited edition pets, like Luv Pup and Luv Kitty, are particularly special because they’re only available at certain times of year and we only make a certain number of them. With our special holiday series, we’re actually seeing that many adults, in addition to getting Pillow Pets™ for their kids, are also buying the limited edition items for their own collections.”

Made of ultra-soft chenille, Pillow Pets™ plush foldable stuffed animals are much more than a stuffed animal. With a strap that closes underneath to transform the pillow into a friendly pet, they are an ideal travel pal, naptime buddy and all-around cuddly friend. Pillow Pets™ plush foldable stuffed animals are available in jungle animals, farm critters and sea creatures – 36 different animals to choose from – and are just one part of the Pillow Pets™ family of products, which also includes books, blankets, slippers, and games.

The plush foldable stuffed animals are manufactured and distributed by CJ Products, LLC, and Ontel Products Corporation and are available for sale nationwide at retailers such as Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Kohl’s, Toys R Us, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Rite Aid, Kmart, Sears, JC Penney, Kroger, Hallmark, mall kiosks and specialty stores as well as online at www.LoveMyPillowPets.com.

I love the foldable features of the Pillow Pets.  During the day, they are a normal stuffed animal; but at night (or at naptime) they transform into a super-soft pillow.  What kid (or adult, for that matter) wouldn’t want to lay their head on a Pillow Pet? 

Gracie says “I like my Pillow Pet. He’s very soft and I sleep on him every night for a pillow.  It’s comfortable and warm.  I’m going to start taking him along when we  go on trips, as he’ll make resting in the car much more comfortable!” 

I would recommend Pillow Pets.  What a great gift!

We saw the Luv Pup at Walmart on Sunday and my daughter fell in love! She really, really wants that one. It just wasn't in the budget right now, so it would be totally awesome to win it for her! My parents got each of my girls a Pillow Pet for Christmas and they LOVE them. They are so soft and comfy!

Champagne Wisdom said...

Oh my goodness - these are too cute!! I would definitely pick the luv pup and give it to my son. He's been wanting a pillow pet and we thought his granny was getting him one for Christmas, but it was a fake - and itsy bitsy. :( We have a new baby in the house, so this is just what my sweet boy needs to feel a little extra TLC. Thanks for the chance!! :)
