Frosty dreams with Olaf

Two weeks ago I was invited to the twins’ school to talk to the children about Hip Little One. We talked about spotting cool stuff, trends, TV, popular toys and characters, Christmas wish lists and the impact other people have on our shopping. We ‘reviewed’ a couple of items together and it was really interesting to see how their little minds work.

Olaf Pillow Pet

One of the products we looked at was a Pillow Pet, a very popular item amongst young Australian children. The students all agreed that Pillow Pets are totally cool, they are soft and cuddly and an excellent companion for snuggles on the couch or bedtime hugs. From a mother’s point of view I like that Pillow Pets are safe and machine washable so they will last for years. That’s a pretty good review if you ask me!

Pillow Pet OlafThe Pillow Pet family is always expanding with gorgeous new designs so there is a friendly pal to suit everyone. The girls loved everything pink, purple and sparkly, the boys were more into dinosaurs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Cars, there are so many different options! Just in time for Christmas Frozen’s favourite snowman Olaf has made his first appearance, he’s soft, white and huggable and won’t melt no matter how many warm hugs you give him!

Let’s hope the mums don’t blame me for all the Olaf Pillow Pets that have now made their way onto the Christmas wish lists!

The Olaf Pillow Pet (RRP $34.99, size 16″) is now available at Target, Big W, Spotlight, TRU and independent toy stores across Australia.

It’s a pillow, it’s a pet AND it lights up your room, it’s the brand new Pillow Pet Glow Friend! Pillow Pets have been a hot Christmas gift for quite a few years now, a hit with both boys and girls and gentle on the (often tight) December budget too. This year everyone’s favourite cuddly pillow has become even more popular with an exciting new 3-in-1 design that the kids are going to love:

Glow Friends UnicornPillow Pet Glow Friends ($29.99, ages 3+) have the soft, cuddly feel of a comfy pillow, they have a lovable, friendly personality and make a fabulous buddy and (the most exciting part) they glow in the dark which looks amazing and offers a bit of extra security at bedtime.  The magical glow comes from special LED lights that don’t get hot (making them completely safe to snuggle up to) and they automatically turn off after 20 minutes to save battery life.

Glow Friends TurtleThere are currently 6 adorable Glow Friends to choose from, my favourite would have to be the unicorn (for that extra magical touch). Which Glow Friend would light up your little ones face (no pun intended)? If you want to surprise the kids with one of these enchanting new Pillow Pets under the tree make sure you get your order in before December 10 to ensure delivery in time for Christmas.

Our three oldest children were always happy to sleep in their cot. Wrapped up nice and snug, cot mobile with light show on and off they went without fuss. And then came baby no.4, a gorgeous little girl who will sleep anywhere but in her own bed. She often moves from room to room with us and a ‘portable’ sleeper calls for a portable light show too, cue Pillow Pets Dream Lites.

imagesCA2PF11XWith the simple touch of a button the new Pillow Pets Dream Lites turn a boring bedroom into a beautiful star filled sky. If your child is not too fond of the dark a Pillow Pets Dream Lite will be an ideal bed buddy. Kids can easily turn on the magic themselves as there is only one button, conveniently located on top, and they can even change the colour of the stars by pressing it multiples times.

Unlike our neighbours’ dogs the soft brown Snuggly Puppy is nice and quiet and our little lady loves staring at all the stars on the ceiling and even the walls, there are lots and lots of them and they’re actually surprisingly bright. Dream Lites work on 3 AAA batteries and to make your batteries last a little longer you can use the 20-minute sleep timer.

Chocolate bunnies, eggs and chicks, glazed hot cross buns with fruit or chocolate, it looks like the shops have turned Easter into Sweeter. As nice as all these treats may look the sugar content is often a lot less nice and many parents are searching for alternative gifts that won’t cause upset tummies, bouts of hyperactivity and a trip to the dentist. If you are looking for a cute Easter gift that looks sweet but comes without the nasty side effects take a look at these special edition Pillow Pets.

Many families have already met Pillow Pets, the cuddly combination of a loyal furry friend and a comfy pillow. My youngest loves having a snooze on her Pillow Pet. Pillow Pets are available in lots of different styles and sizes and especially for Easter four new characters have been added to the range. Keep your eye out for the purple Fluffy Bunny, pink Cuddly Bunny, white Thumpy Bunny and the cute yellow Puffy Duck.

Of course these four new additions are just as huggable and snuggly as the rest of the Pillow Pets family thanks to the ultra-soft chenille fabric. Don’t worry, they are machine washable so mums will have no trouble keeping them clean and they’ll be ready for more cuddles in no time. From pillow to pet, from pet to pillow, it takes just a second with the simple velcro tab so kids can do it without help.

Pillow Pets make perfect companions for little ones, they can take them everywhere! In bed, on the couch, in the car, on holidays. Be careful as they will soon ask you for another furry friend, and another and another. From ladybugs to dinosaurs, dogs to pandas and butterflies to pigs, there are currently 18 Pillow Pets designs available so there is lots of choice and new designs are being added all the time.

To find out more about Pillow Pets, to take a closer look at the different designs and to order online visit www.mypillowpet.com.au. The Easter Pillow Pets ($19.99) are exclusively available at BigW.

For your chance to win one of three Easter Pillow Pets (randomly selected) just in time for Easter visit www.mypillowpet.com.au and answer the following question: Which one of the Pillow Pets is your favourite and why?
