  • Six Different Options

    You can choose from six different stuffed animals that all transform into toys with pillows. Your child can choose from a dog, cat, monkey, bear, unicorn, or a frog. Each different stuffed animal has a different and vibrant color scheme that is sure to delight any child. This variety in options means even if your child is picky, they are more likely to find a toy that is suitable for them.

  • Unisex Toy

    Both boys and girls can enjoy having a Pillow Hugger. The various animal characters have many different color schemes, making most of them unisex toys. However, the cat and unicorn options have a considerable amount of pink on them. This might make them more suitable for girls if the parents are worried about gender specific colors for their children.


  • Easy to Set up

    Even your child can transform the Pillow Hugger from a stuffed animal into a pillow hugging toy. All they have to do is roll down the pillow case, insert the provided pillow into the case and secure the arms to their toy’s feet. No additional steps are required. Thus, your child will not require adult supervision when using this toy.

  • Friendly Looking Toy

    Each of the characters have friendly looking faces. They all have smiles and wide eyes. Such expressions are sure to put children at ease and can be welcoming to play with. Additionally, both the dog and frog have their tongues sticking out, making them especially adorable.


  • Unicorn and Cat Are Girly

    If you child is a boy who does not enjoy girlish colors - but likes either the unicorn or cat - they might have difficulty with their color schemes. The cat is a mixture of pink and white. Meanwhile, the unicorn’s main colors are dark purple, lavender, pink and white. Thus, this might be problematic if your child is a boy ( or girl ), prefers these toy choices - but is not fond of the feminine colors.

  • Must Carry Pillow

    In order for this toy to transform into a toy holding a pillow, you must carry both items around with you. Thus, if you are traveling, you will need to have the pillow handy in another location when your child is ready to convert the toy into a pillow. Having to carry around the pillow until your child is ready to use it might prove to be tedious.

How It Works

The design of this toy is straightforward. Its pillowcase is disguised as a shirt when the stuffed animal is on its own. Once your child is ready to use the pillow portion of this toy, the shirt is rolled down into a pillow case. Then, an adult or the child must insert the provided pillow into the case. Once that is complete, the hands of the toy must be secured to its feet.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Let Your Child Choose

    Before getting one of these toys for your child, let them decide which stuffed animal they prefer. Since they each have different color schemes, it is important for your child to truly prefer the toy over the others. This way, they will be more likely to play with the stuffed animal for longer periods of time and to keep it around.
