Pillow Pets giveaway!

pillow pets ladybug1There is no doubt that one of the hottest gift items this holiday season will be Pillow Pets. Pillow Pets was gracious enough to supply MOM Magazine with a Pillow Pet as part of our holiday giveaway.

I was first introduced to the darling things while in Target one day several months ago. I was happily walking down the isle when I heard a grown woman scream "O. M. G. THEY HAVE PILLOW PETS!" I watched her rush to an end cap filled with puppies, lady bugs and unicorns. Soon after that, I started hearing about them everywhere.

For a chance to win a Pillow Pet from MOM Magazine answer the following in our comments:

Does your child have a pillow pet? If yes, which one? If no, is it on his/her wish list?

We will randomly select a winner on Friday, December 10th, so check back often!
