My girls have a ton of them, they love them :) My youngest is the most attached to hers. The cheapest Ive found them where at Costco for $16. the teeny ones I saw in a couple black friday ads I think are little keychains though. We have one of the smaller ones & we keep it in the car incase we are out and my yougest falls asleep it works well in a shopping cart lol

Hehehe! On the forum page this thread just says "I need your pillow pet." Well, you can't have 'em! They are not 'The World's Greatest Toy' and, yes, they are a bit pricey for pillows. But I'm sure you can find them for less than $20 and I think they are worth it, especially if they are on your kid's list. My kids asked for them last year. DD7 wanted it the most and was disappointed when she thought she didn't get one. (It came from her aunt, who we celebrated with on New Year's). Last Feb. we did a purge (The pillow pets went into storage with a bunch of other toys. The kids earn them back with good deeds) and all 3 kids "bought" their pillow pets, even though there are still plenty of other toys great toys to choose from. They don't get played with much, but they are always on the beds and the kids use them as pillows. The kids are camping out down in the living room right now and the 1 pillow they each brought with is thier pet. They are super soft, sturdy, and great for road trips.

My 5 year old daughter got one for Christmas last year. She loves hers. We took it on vacation with us. She sleeps on it every night. I would love to have one too. They are so comfortable..lol. Very soft. I would not order it online though. AS others have said they are available everywhere and you would save on shipping charges.

GIVE ME ALL YOUR PILLOW PETS!!!! Haha

I really appreciate your opinions. I think I'll go ahead and get them pillow pets...that horse one would be cute for my DS2 (he looooves horses) and DS7 specifically asked for a dinosaur pillow pet. I was just afraid it would be one of those things where $40 later no one even looks at their pillow pets, you know? But it sounds like your kids love them for the most part. :)

My 3 yo dd sleeps with hers every night. She loves it. I believe Bed Bath and Beyond carries them and you can use either a 20% off coupon or a $5 coupon on them. And I've seen them at Kohl's also. If you are a cardholder they have a 30% off sale and Kohls cash for every $50 you spend.

It looks like the collections ect free shipping and 10% code expired yesterday. The pillow pets are still less than $10 and you can get an extra 20% off if you sign up for e-mails, but the shipping was over $6 for one pet. Wish I had seen that deal yesterday!

I got my kids a different brand last year (for less, of course) and they love them because they make sounds as well.

My 8 year old twins and my 5 year old all got one from wm last year and asked for the "teeny" ones this year. Sleep with them every night. The things wash remarkably well.

My 3 each have one...my dd who is 2, is a Minnie Mouse FREAK, and they just came out with Disney ones...the Minnie one is cute, but unless they go on sale, I can't justify spending $30 on it!!

I have three girls (8, 6, and 2 yo), and they each have two pillow pet type animals- each one has a "real" pillow pet and a knock off pillow pet, they can't tell the difference. They all three love their pillow pets, the big two sleep with both of theirs every night (they like a lot of pillows) and the little one would but for allergy reasons has to sleep on a special pillow, she snuggles it during the day a lot though, or steals her sisters while they are at school ;) They are getting another of the knock off ones for Christmas this year (they had them for $2.88, I couldn't resist because they will love them).

My DD7 (now) has slept with hers every night since she got "Po" the Panda Pillow Pet (how's that for alliteration?! :tongue1: ) last Christmas. They launder well too. Highly recommend.

My 9 yr. old ds has 2 pillow pets and loves them both. We got him the polar bear last year when he had surgery on his elbow. It made a great fun and comfy place to rest his recouperating arm. He also sleeps with it and takes it to school when they have a read a thon day. He also has one for his favorite team and uses it to watch the games on tv. Before the game he brings down his pillow pet, this team blanket, and his fave. stuffed bear dressed in team gear. He is such a loyal fan of his Browns.

My ds10 and dd7 both have them and absolutely love them. They aren't really something to "play" with but are the pillow of choice for camping out around the house, car travels and hanging out backstage at dd's dance competitions. Grandpa got them for Christmas last year or the year before and they are still a hit in our house.

I have found the sports pillow pets at Walmart, JCPenney & Kohls. I think Kohls has them in their black friday ad.

Got the Pee Wee Pillow Pets at Target last night for 12.99. Not sure they are going to be any cheaper on Black Friday so I went ahead and bought it since they had the exact ones I needed. Kids are going to love it!

We have multiple pillow pets and the kids love them. DD2 uses hers as a regular pillow in her bed and both girls use them when going to grandmas house or to lay around on the couch

Thanks to all of you, I decided to jump on the Pillow Pet express here. I was at Kmart and they had a great selection, so I picked up a dinosaur for DS7 and a horse for DS2! They're so soft! I'm really happy with them. Thanks, everyone! :)

I just bought the Pillow Pet, so I can't give an opinion on the 2, but I just wanted to say that I believe it was in the Big Lots ad that they'll have the Happy Nappers for $15 each on BF. :)

My dd loves her Pillow Pet and is kind of stuffed animal crazy right now. She really wants a Happy Napper. I was able to find one at our local Bilo when they were clearancing them for around $7. I am hiding it at Grandma's until Christmas so I don't know what she thinks of it yet. I think the Pillow Pet is more of a pillow than a "pet" she sleeps on it every night but never plays with it. And the Happy Napper is more toy looking to me than pillow. You can stuff the animal into the outer zippered "house" case, but it seems like it would be lumpy to sleep on. The Happy Napper did seem very soft, but don't know how it holds up to play yet.
