At a Christmas party Spud and Spike had a full on battle over this really cute pillow that folded up to make a funky looking soft toy. Spud wanted the pillow and Spike wanted the soft toy. With the craziness of Christmas it was something that I completely forgot about until we were asked if we wanted to review Mookie Pillow Pets. Remembering how much they both loved it I jumped at the chance.
“Pillow Pets are the new premium quality plush toy made of ultra-soft and cuddly chenille but with a clever twist. When a hidden strap is released underneath, the cuddly creature transforms from a toy into a soft pillow, making the Pillow Pet a perfect travelling pal, naptime buddy and all round snuggly friend.”
The Boys were thrilled to see that we had been sent a Ladybird one and I was impressed with the overall quality and feel. The Pillow Pet is so soft that I was tempted to hide it from them and keep it for myself. I was giving it a thorough once over and Spud shouted “Share Mummy!” so the guilt kicked in and I had to let them have it.
It’s held in pet mode using a soft strap underneath with strong Velcro. The clever bit is when it’s in pillow mode there is a little flap over the Velcro to prevent it from picking up fluff or snagging on hair. (I had to make the picture black and white so you could actually see what i meant!)
Mookie have a huge range of Pillow Pet animals to choose all with really cute names. We have Ms Ladybug but you can get Billy Monkey, Playful Penguin, Comfy Panda, Snuggly Puppy, Magical Unicorn and Wiggly Pig and Bumbly Bee! For Easter 4 more Pillow Pets join the family in the shape of Cuddly Bunny, Thumpy Bunny, Puffy Duck and Fluffy Bunny.
Our whole family love Ms Ladybug. She spends most of her time in pillow mode on our sofa under either mine or the Hubby’s head. Occasionally we will let the Boys play with her and Spike uses her as a bottle pillow whilst Spud snuggles down with her every afternoon for quiet time.
At the moment we are getting by with one but the Hubby is becoming increasingly protective of it so I can see us buying another one within the next few weeks!
