This is a great gift for a science enthusiast or for girl power. I didn't pay attention to the dimensions, however. It is a small accent pillow.

Comments about UncommonGoods Chromosome Pillows:

Bought both pillows for grandson in med school. He loved then for his couch and couldn't wait to show them to friends. Initially I thought they were small but he thought them just right for small sofa in small apartment. Great conversation pieces and will be used!

Comments about UncommonGoods Chromosome Pillows:

Love this creative pillow. I happen to work in genetics and thought this was fun way to show a little more of myself in my home. Since the material is burlap like it is not at all soft and I would never lay my head on it, but it is a conversation starter and a unique piece. I think it would make a fun baby gift too!

Great Design Quality, A Bit Expensive

Comments about UncommonGoods Chromosome Pillows:

I feel as if the pillow was too expensive. I was expecting 2. Even though the product description said "Sold Individually" the picture shown was a bit misleading. Other than that, the pillow made a fantastic gift for my Biology-loving friend. It was well made and looks great on his bed.
