Normally I manage to avoid the advertising hype when it comes to childrens' products, but we've finally been suckered in. The kids were DESPERATE for Pillow Pets. They begged and begged. So, we broke down and ordered one for Cecily and one for Colin for their birthdays (actually, they came from Grandma and Grandpa). Then we decided we'd better get one for Hero and give it to her as an early birthday gift so that she could bring it on our drive to Wisconsin. And then we thought that it'd just be best to make sure everyone got one for the trip. So, here we are five Pillow Pets later, and no, we aren't going to talk about how much they cost LOL. Colin picked a frog, Ian wanted dolphin, Cecily has a bunny, Allegra received a unicorn, and Hero got a whale.
