Its that time of year and many of you are wondering what to get the kiddos continue reading below for the first in a series of reviews and giveaways in the Army Wife 101 Countdown to Christmas!

Ask anyone who knows me or has read a past blog post and you will quickly find out that my favorite place to be in the whole world is in my bed propped up with pillows on my laptop.

Naturally I was more then happy to review a Pillow Pet from the My Pillow Pet selection of cute little critters for you to lounge on and prop yourself up with. I received the Patriotic Pillow Pet which was cuddly soft and relaxing to lay on for a nice cold winter day at home. My kids absolutely loved it and have requested their own for Christmas. I even caught “Mr Army Wife 101” chilling out with it , because it was that comfy.

Being the constant travelers we are , Pillow Pets are great for the road or planes. If you have little ones who still need fun incorporated into their sleep time routine  these make a great addition.  The Pillow Pet is machine washable and extremely durable as well.

You can purchase many different types of Pillow Pets and they make great gifts at starting under $20.

I have wanted a pillow pet since they came out and hoping to get one very soon! :) I have subscribed to Army Wife 101 and I’m following pillow pet on facebook and twitter :) Thanks for all you go Krystal and all the company’s that allow you to do what you do :)

  2. These little critters are adorable and they look soooo soft!! lol I really think the patriotic pillow pet is my absolute favorite! But Wiggly Pig is a really strong competitor for favorite (It’s pink ;) )

  3. Well gosh, I loved the Snuggly Puppy, but now that I’ve seen the Patriotic one, I want that one!! I think I’m gonna have to order him! Lol :)

  4. I just wanna say thank you so much. My kids have been asking for pillow pets this will make the perfect xmas gift for all of them :). I would love to get the puppy. I have subscribed to army wife 101. I also added pillow pets on facebook and showed love from army wife 101 on their page. Thank You soooooo much.

  5. I absolutely love the turtle one on the website but im sad i didnt see the patriotic one on there. Are they not available for purchase?

  6. I am so in love with this pup! My son has his heart set on a panda. I have been thinking about getting my newphew the bumble bee for Christmas.

  7. I would love for my daughter to have the patriotic one but other then that the pig because she takes after he grammy and we just recently had to move away from family and she is a special needs child and i think it would be cool for her to have something like this…

  8. I think the penguin is really adorable! My youngest son used to have a thing for penguins (loved Surf’s Up and Happy Feet for the longest time!). My middle son told me he was going to ask Santa for one of these…he wanted the frog pillow pet at first, but we kind of talked him into getting the penguin one. Now I think I’m going to have to get him a different one because I think my youngest will be claiming the penguin one as his come Christmas morning! All the pillow pets are really cute though! Awesome idea!!

  9. I love the purple Hungry Hippo. I think it is absolutely adorable! Two of my three girls have received a My Pillow Pet for their birthday this year and they LOVE them. Great for traveling.

  10. I love the froggy pillow pet the best! So cute and I was looking at them in the store the other day and they are SO SOFT!

  11. I love the panda bear pillow pet…panda’s are so adorable and i think they look soft and cuddly..and who does’t love a bear hug !!! panda pillow pet is the perfect gift-you can sleep on it and even give it a big ol bear hug !!

  12. I like the Silly Monkey pillow pet mainly because we call our daughter a little monkey. She loves to hang onto daddy’s leg while he walks or on his back all wrapped around him. She would really love one of those!

  13. My daughter and I love Pillow pets . I personally love the patriotic one you’ve shown that is so cute and it actually touches my heart to see it and think of all the spouses that will hold their pillow pet while their loved one is deployed or just away working and fighting for our country and how the pillow pet will bring a smile to their face . Thank you for sharing that . My daughter loves the frog pillow pet (frogs items are her new facination …don’t ask i dunno why) Thats one thing i know is on her wishlist this Christmas.
