My son wanted one of these many years ago but never got one. I guess that is a mom fail for me. Because these My Pillow Pets are actually pretty neat inventions.
Yes, it's another stuffed animal. And yes, My Pillow Pet Panda is an awfully cute stuffed animal. It's incredibly soft and cuddly. This little guy is also machine washable on the gentle cycle (they recommend putting it inside a pillow case). I ran it through the washer on "hand wash" and it came out just fine. It is line dry, but it dries pretty quickly over night.
Its 18" is also a great size for my 17 month old. It's a little big for her to carry, but she loves jumping on it and cuddling it. And it will be something she can continue using as she grows.
But the pillow aspect of it is what my daughter really loves!
It has a velcro strap that you undo to allow the animal to lie flat on its belly and become a soft, cuddly pillow.
The velcro strip also has a soft cover you can place over it so it doesn't stick to anything like the carpet or your child's clothes (a big plus!).
I had to do some research to find out on the My Pillow Pets site that the recommended age on this is 3+. As with other stuffed animals, if you have a younger child it will require supervision. I also do not allow her to sleep with this at nap time or at bedtime yet. When she is older, I'm sure she will enjoy using it at those times too. For now, she lounges on it during the day while I am with her.
The panda is definitely a hit at our house! (and has been borrowed by a few family members at times too) I have my eye on this adorable matching My Pillow Pet Panda Blanket!
