Giveaway & Review: New Butterfly Pillow Pet from [CLOSED]

Last Christmas, all three of our children each received a My Pillow Pet as a gift . . . a penguin, a ladybug, and a dolphin.  After a week, they were all asking for a second one because they loved their first Pillow Pets so much.  So when I was offered the chance to review the new My Pillow Pet Butterfly, I immediately thought to myself about how perfect this would be for my daughter.  Well, I was wrong . . . all three of my children (a 4yr old girl, a 4yr old boy, and a 7yr old boy) wanted this butterfly to be their own.  Shame on me for the gender stereotyping, but it all worked out in the end.  The children, all on their own, coordinated a rotating schedule for taking turns to sleep with the butterfly in their beds at night.

I have to say that I can see why my children are so charmed by this 18" butterfly.  Its face is whimsical and endearing, and is it ever cuddly!  My daughter says her favorite part is the colorful wings.

I must say that I have been impressed with the quality and workmanship of all the My Pillow Pet plush we have owned thus far.  I have purchased many other pillow-like plush toys and quite a few of them came apart at the seams (literally) after a short period of time.

You can find approximately 40 different My Pillow Pets and My Pillow Pet Blankets on, a Hallmark Gold Crown store based in Utah which also offers favorite gifts, such as Willow Tree, Precious Moments, DaVinci Beads, Zoobies, Webkinz, Zhu Zhu Pets, and more.  To learn more, visit the Coppin's Hallmark Blog.
