Soapbox Saturday - Pillow Pets and a GIVEAWAY!

I was asked a few weeks ago if I'd like to review a Pillow Pet.  I said sure and headed to their site to pick one out for the boys.  I thought the turtle was especially cute.  I mentioned that we were getting a Pillow Pet to my mom and she told me that my sister's kids were dying to have one.  I mentioned we were gettong one another sister and she said her kids are dying to have one as well.  Her 4 year old started singing the jingle.  It's a pillow..it's a pet..it's a pillow pet!  Basically, it's a pillow and stuffed animal in one.
Well a couple of days ago ours arrived.  The first thing I noticed was how incredibly soft it was.  (I was tempted to sleep with it myself.)  It's really well made (but beware - there are some imposters out there as well - check the tag).  What I like best is that the whole thing is machine washable. 

When my kids have to sleep or nap somewhere other than our home, they do a lot better with something that is familiar.  I can fold Rex's blankie into the Pillow Pet and easily take both with.  Then naps aren't as much of a difficulty in that location. 

I have secret plan to sew the turtle a cape.  Rex has named him "Sidekick" and I think he'll fit right in when we finish his superhero bedroom.

Pillow Pets are also on the Toys 'R Us Fabulous Fifteen Hot Holiday Toy List.  They make a great, easy present for a wide age group.  After buying one the next ones you purchase are 20% off AND today we get to give one away.  Leave a comment (with a way to contact you) and tell me which pillow pet you want.  Check them out HERE

(Sweet bedhead not included.)  Thanks for dropping in.
