Pillow Pets Are the Latest “Retro” Toy Making a Comeback

The New York Toy Fair 2018 is bringing innovations and new products galore to us ‘always on the search for the next big thing’ mamas. But not every toy that’s making its way to the showcase is brand-new. Pillow Pets are coming back, and in a major way.

The original Pillow Pets line is relaunching this year. The “Signature” line will include popular pets, featuring the panda, penguin, unicorn and zebra.

Along with the re-release of the original naptime pals, Pillow Pets is launching several brand-new products. These include products specifically for babies. The My First Pillow Pet line will come in pastel colors and feature three sizes — 5-inch, 11-inch and 18-inch pets. But this isn’t the only line for babies that Pillow Pets is debuting. The Natural Pillow Pets line has cuddly soft that are made from Sherpa materials.

If your kiddo needs a nightlight, the Sleeptime Lites line pulls double duty. Like the name says, it’s a Pillow Pet that also has a nightlight function. Sleeptime Lites have their own timers that shut the lights down after 20 minutes.

Pillow Pets is also bringing some of your kiddo’s favorite licensed characters to their new lines. This includes a Sesame Street line with Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Cookie Monster and other characters from the small screen.

Does your child have a favorite bedtime toy? Share their pick with us in the comments below.
