“Oh the weather outside is frightful…”
But this holiday gift guide is delightful!
Hello and Happy Friday! I’m so excited to be continuing the 2013 Holiday Gift Guide today and to share some great ideas for the special little ones in your life. As any parent knows, traveling with small children is no easy feat. I’ve found that bringing the right stuffed and cuddly travel companions can make all the difference in the world. For that reason, I present to you the second item in the 2013 Holiday Gift Guide: Pillow Pets.
Pillow Pets retail at around $20 a piece and are a great gift idea for any little one. The company has been around since 2003, and, as the name suggests, are designed to function both as a soft and cuddly stuffed animal friend, and then unfold into a comfortable pillow. The company has grown to include an extensive line of options, including all sorts of different kinds of animals as well as Disney licensed characters like Nemo, Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and many more.
When we travel, we try to travel light. The ability to combine two essential items (and yes, stuffed animals for a toddler are essential) is extremely helpful and means one less item to worry about . My favorite is the Swirly Dolphin. It’s adorable, the colors are vibrant, and you have to love dolphins. The pillow itself is so soft and comfortable that I wish they made an adult line so I could have a few of my own. Also on my list of favorites are the Sully pillow (from “Monster’s Inc.”) and the Zany Zebra which is fun and bright. Each pillow unfolds for naptime and is easy to transport from one location to the next.
The Swirly Dolphin pillow pet (pictured above) is roughly 18″ and is recommended for children ages 3 and up.
The Zany Zebra Pillow Pet (above) is so much fun. What I like best about this particular item is that you can personalize it for a nominal fee. This item retails at just under $20 (without the personalization) and is a great gift idea for children on the go.
The makers of Pillow Pets didn’t end their creativity with their original invention. The company also offers Glow Pets, Dream Lites, Brush Pets, and so much more…all of which can be easily ordered online from their website. Be sure to check them out and let me know what you like best. When you stop by, be sure to let them know that It’s An Ordinary Blog sent you!
