      I bought this for my daughter to use in her profession as a school psychologist. Students hug it for comfort during sessions. It is a perfect tool to help calm them down! Elementary and high school alike!

      These cuddly pillows make us want to take a break from the workday to snuggle up. So imagine what the little ones in your life will think! Would you give this to your child to hold on to at daycare? What about a niece, nephew or grandkid you don't get to see as much as you'd like? Which huggable pillow do you love (and think your favorite tot will love) most?

      I had a blankie as a child so I know the comfort that things like this can provide. I would buy this as a gift for a young child who may be shy and need a little comfort.

      cute! price a lil high though

      Adorable gift idea for the kids in my life, but the price point's a bit steep.

      That's adorable though I think the crying one's a little depressed. It appears to have the same comforting factors as a blankie but it can't rip and gather dirt by being dragged. Plus you can hug and sleep on it--very cute.

      $42 pillow. Really?

      Probably a niche for these as there is for everything, but I'd be more prone to purchase a large

      Super cute, great idea, but there's no way I'm spending that much for a pillow.

      way too expensive

      Very cute idea. However, they should be larger and there is not a chance that I would spend that much on a pillow.

      Thanks for the question, Kat. These squeezable pals can be spot cleaned using a damp cloth or machine washed on gentle. We're updating the product story to include this information.

      Adorable, albeit pricy.

      Vote: Thumbs down!

      Not very cute colors and "hand-loomed" means made on a knitting machine which might confuse folks who think thay are getting something "hand-woven". Pima cotton is veeeeery soft, so they are probably nice, but a little costly for what they are.

      Like the idea - but not made in USA - sorry no vote for me!


      $42, are you serious?!?

      who needs this?

      Vote: Thumbs down!

      As others have said, this is way overpriced.

      Vote: Thumbs down!

      Cute idea but it doesn't look very soft or cuddly. It looks sort of stark and sad and unlike what soothes children.

      Vote: Thumbs up!

      What a great idea!

      These are so cute. Grandkids will love them.


      Very cute and would make a nice gift-- but way to expensive!

      Very cute idea but much too expensive!

      Vote: Thumbs up!

      Really cute idea. Would not buy. Too easy to copy and make my own for a few dollars


      Not voting either way. LOVE the idea! But the price point is way too high...even for pima cotton and a decent sized pillow for little ones. Also think it would be better stuffed with cotton or wool (which might help justify the price.)
