Overstuffed Adventure

Cast your favorite little person as an adventurous literary figure--whether a newborn making a debut or a young child in the first few pages of his or her adventure--with this delightfully personalized pillow, featuring custom, storybook-inspired illustrations on each side and your custom rave "review." For newborns, it's an imaginative antidote to ordinary birth announcements; for young children, it commemorates the magical story of early childhood. For all, it's a soft, safe, and huggable tribute to each child's precious individuality. The charming illustrations by Patricia Carlin evoke timeless storybook classics, creating a unique and memorable custom pillow that will transition from nursery to bedroom to grown-up keepsake.

Customize the character to reflect your child of choice--newborn or child (skin tone for all, plus gender and hair options for older kids). The parents' names as displayed as "authors" of this little masterpiece. Write a review of your little one's story (by you or another doting relative) to add an imaginative and endearing touch to the additional artwork on the back of the pillow. Made in Brooklyn, New York.

“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.

    I want my grandson to use this constantly and be rough or gentle as he wishes as the cover is tough, washable and durable. He will remember this pillow into adulthood, an ongoing part of life.

              We gave this as a newborn gift for the first grandchild of our close friends and received the following thank you note from the parents: "Thank you so much for the absolute coolest baby gift. We love "The Adventures of Dorey" and know that Dorey will love snuggling up to it as an infant and see the humor in it when she gets a little older."
