There are many different types of toys out there, but there aren’t many that double up as a pillow. While many kids might use their favorite stuffed animals as pillows, there is one type of toy that is actually designed to be both. These toys are trademarked under the name “My Pillow Pets,” and were the idea of a single mother from San Diego who was tired of always picking up stuffed animals and tried to think of a way to make toys functional, as well.
Like many toys that become popular, this one started out as a weird and somewhat random idea and it just took off. Word of mouth become a company, then a small company became a corporation and the growth continued.
My Pillow Pets are a neat idea. They are kept in the shape of a stuffed animal by a Velcro strap, but once that strap is removed the toy spreads out and becomes a full sized kid’s pillow. This is a really interesting idea, and by making it simple kids don’t need help changing it over from one to another.
These toys are known for the quality material, which means less of them are made than with other companies that mass produce toys, but each individual toy should be able to hold up better than the average stuffed animal.
For people who are looking for an interesting stuffed animal that also has additional practical uses, it’s really hard to find a better solution than the one that My Pillow Pets has presented.
