Pillow Pets Review

Eldest excited telling youngest “I have seen this on telly, let me tell you how it works, you open it like this and then you can take it on a sleepover…” Both then Oooohh over it full of obvious respect

Pillow Pets are unbelievably soft; I could quite happily snug into the sweet Penguin and have a quick nap… wonder if the children will let me share him for long enough.  With an RRP of £19.99 I think they are certainly worth it, I have a feeling if you have trouble getting your toddler off to sleep you could bring out their special pillow and help ease some of those difficult moments when you know they need sleep but they just keep fighting it.  Youngest has been lying on it yawning away, so do not think it would take him long to drop off!


I think when we are next on an epic journey in the car to visit the boy’s grandparents the Pillow Pet will definitely be coming along too.  To settle youngest in his car seat, he can hopefully be much more comfortable and ideally my neck will be less strained not constantly turning round to check on his long list of complaints!  So we will all arrive less frazzled at our destination.


Penguin has been cuddled and sat on when he was closed and has little legs.  He seems a very popular toy already.  “I’m walking like a penguin…” youngest keeps saying as he carries him along!

There are eight Pillow Pets available exclusively from Mookie Toys and they can be purchased from Toys ‘R’ Us and Amazon. The range includes Billy Monkey, Playful Penguin (the one we were kindly sent to review), Comfy Panda, Snuggly Puppy, Magical Unicorn, Wiggly Pig, Ms Ladybug and Bumbly Bee! 

I am also pleased as to how easy they are to wash, the label says they are machine washable, which is perfect as when toys are dragged around by a toddler they do get a little grubby and often spoon fed random bits of real food during the day too!  So a quick cycle in the wash and they are good to go again.

Our new Playful Penguin is now tucked in bed sleeping huddled in the arms of my youngest.

  2. We could use some on our sofa - when daughter gets home from nursery she always wants a nap but fights it, so gets a bit grouchy! Thanks for the review. @maisietoo/ Maya Russell

  11. Pillow pets really are amazing and unbelievably soft. My kids love taking them on sleepovers and they have been fantastic sleeping companions on the plane and in the car. However are you aware of all the fake pillow pets out there? Please take a look at my blog on "My Pillow Pets – nothing compares to the real thing."
