Pillow Pets Make Great Snuggle Buddies - 20 Different Animals to Choose From

Holiday shoppers across the country are clamoring for the extremely popular and snuggly Pillow Pets. Demand for the cuddly creatures has been overwhelming with Pillow Pets nearly selling out online and in many retail stores. Aware of the surge in demand, retailers of similar products have reportedly been using fraudulent My Pillow Pets signage to draw people to their product and have claimed that their product and Pillow Pets are made by the same company.

My Pillow Pets has received multiple notifications of “knock off” products being sold under the Pillow Pets name, mostly at kiosks in shopping malls. The company is doing its best to investigate these claims and, in the meantime, would like consumers to know what to look for to ensure they are buying a real Pillow Pet:

  •     Most importantly, be sure to check that the label on the back leg of the animal says “My Pillow Pets”.
  •     No other product name or tag should appear on an authentic Pillow Pet. Pillow Pets is not affiliated with any other company. Any product we produce is under the My Pillow Pets brand alone.
  •     Ordering online at guarantees that the consumer will receive an authentic Pillow Pet.
