My Pillow Pets Review and Giveaway!


Earlier in the month, I posted this blog post about the limited edition Pillow Pet, the Patriotic Pillow Pup, and how every purchase gives money to charities such as Military Scholar, which sets up scholarships for the children of Military Personnel. I hold charities such as that dear to my heart as I have several family members who have served in the armed forces, both past and present.
I got my very own Patriotic Pup and it came just in time for our trip to MI! Both of my kids played with it in the car, and both Cooper and I took a little nap with it :D The Pillow Pet is so unbelieveably soft and squishy.

Even my 11 month old loved it, he just kept rolling over on it and burying his face into it, it was so sweet!!
Pillow Pets seem to be all the rage right now among my friends, I have had several friends mention that they would love to get one, or that they got one for their child and it was such a hit! I really can see why. It is such a great toy, perfect for young and old (like me!) My 3 yr old named his Red Clues after a certain favorite dog of his!!

"About My Pillow Pets®
 Since 2003, My Pillow Pets® plush folding stuffed animals have been bringing smiles to the faces of all ages. The concept for the snuggly companions was the brainchild of a San Diego-based mother of two, who had grown tired of picking up stuffed animals strewn across her children’s rooms. What began with the simple goal of transforming a simple stuffed animal into a functional item for children has grown into an amazing jungle of popular retail and wholesale products. For more information, please visit www.GetPillowPets.com."


I really think this is the toy to give this year-the Patriotic Pup Pillow Pet is fun, soft, and it doesn't hurt that your're helping others when making your purchase!

how cute are these pillows..a special thanks to all the branches of military (can't choose just one!) who allow us the freedom that we love and cherish... I have to say that EVERY time I see someone in uniform I get goosebumps allover and can only think about how lucky I am that there are those out there willing to make the sacrifices so that we can live life as we do. Thank you to all and GOD BLESS!!!

I am thankful for all the men and women who serve our country. The sacrifices they make for our freedom is incredible. I am an avid documentary viewer and unless people are aware of How much freedom we have in America, they will never truly appreciate it. So, I am grateful for those who continue to fight for our freedom and those who fought in the past.

I am thankful that I live in country with the Freedom speak up when we see injustice, the right to protest when our government makes a bad choice, and the ability to change things with our vote. AND we can do all of that without fear of reprisal from our government. A Huge THANKS to all of the men & women of the US Military who serve every day to make sure it stays that way.
