Popcorn Panda and Car

Travel is one of the greatest rewards in life. But it can also be challenging; flight delays, smelly airports, unfamiliar beds.  Pillow Pets Sweet Scented Pets help take the “stink” out of travel.  Not only do these cute and cuddly Pillow Pets act as a travel companion by day and a pillow by night, they also contain a subtle scent patch delivering the yummy smell of children’s favorite sweet treats.

The saying goes that it’s not about the destination but about the journey but sometimes the journey can be uncomfortable.  Sweet Scented Pets, and all of our Pillow Pets folding plush, are a travel favorite as they deliver the comfort of a stuffed animal by day and a familiar friend and pillow by night. Add in the delicious smell of chocolate chip cookies or cotton candy and you have the perfect travel buddy.

Available now, Cookie Pup serves up the scent of gooey, out-of-the-oven home-baked cookies, Gummi Pup’s fruity scent of the favorite colorful gummy candy, PupCake with the aroma of baked cupcakes with hints of sugary fluffy vanilla frosting, Watermelon Candy Ladybug delivers the freshness of a watermelon candy, and the Cotton Candy Unicorn offers up a sugary sensory explosion of this fair time treat.

Perfect for playtime, sleep time, or anytime, Sweet Scented Pillow Pets are surface washable and feature long- lasting scents that are sure to delight the senses. These confectionery plush pals will be available year round with new ‘flavors’ added seasonally. Scents are made in the US.

Sometimes a Key Opens More Than a Door

Since 2009, Pillow Pets and Family Reach have worked together to support children fighting pediatric cancer. Through generous monetary and in-kind donations to Family Reach, Pillow Pets has brought comfort, love and financial relief to families facing a cancer diagnosis nationwide.

Family Reach has a new Key Holder Program which harnesses your generosity and compassion to provide significant, long-term support for families facing the financial burdens of cancer. For as little as $15.00 a month you can become a Key Holder and help a family in need. As a member of this monthly giving program, you join an exceptional group of people committed to providing families battling cancer with the resources they need to maintain access to medical care, safe housing, nutritious food and transportation.

Our partnership with Family Reach has given so much back to us.  We love seeing the bond that develops between a Family Reach team member and a new patient when presenting a Pillow Pet as an ice breaker, or seeing the smiles and joy that the Pillow Pets bring to the faces of little ones as they go through the most difficult time of their lives. Our hearts break when one of our dear friends loses their battle with cancer; we shed tears and dig in a little more to help these families fight for one more day.

We will continue to support Family Reach with in-kind and monetary donations. We hope our loyal Pillow Pets fans will join us.

Time to sleep with the sharks!

MPPSliders2016_SharkWeek_opt1Discovery Shark Week starts June 26th. It’s one of our favorite weeks of television as we get to see what these mysterious creatures do day and night. Meet the Sharky Shark Pillow Pet, the perfect cute and cuddly companion to snuggle and watch Shark Week.  Once you have maxed out your viewing time, take your Shark Pillow Pet to bed as a comfy pillow for a good night’s sleep.  This favorite shark toy by day turns into a pillow for television, travel or bedtime.  Perfect for adding a touch of the sea to your play room or bedroom as well.

Here are some shark facts courtesy of our friends at Discovery:

  • Sharks aren’t made of bone like other fish.  Their skeletons are made of cartilage, the same flexible material that you can feel in the tip of your nose or your ears.  This makes them a super-bendable species.
  • An average great white shark will eat 10% of its body weight every week.  That’s like a person eating 8 quarter-pound hamburgers every day.
  • If an award could be given to the most frightening water creature of all, it goes to the great white shark. This huge fish can grow longer than a van and as heavy as fifteen gorillas.
  • Earth’s largest ocean predator, the great white shark, can grow to 36 feet long and can weigh 4000 pounds… Once again, that’s 36 feet long – larger than many recreational boats.  And 4000 pounds – heavier than most cars.  What’s more, the great white can reach speeds of 25 mph and often leaps out of the water to attack its prey from a better angle.
