Pillow Pets - it's what my kids want now, or should I say - today!

My Pillow Pets Dog 18"
I'm pretty sure that these have been around for a couple of years, but my girls have been seeing some ads for these lately and have been begging me for this cute doggie and the purple unicorn are now on my Amazon wish list, which is pretty much my kids' Christmas & Hanukkah list (yes, we celebrate both - lucky kids!).

There's not much to them - they can be played with like any stuffed animal, yet they "detach" underneath and become "flat" pillows.  These would probably be great for travel, whether on an airplane or for road trips! Hmmm.....

Enjoy summer even more with a butterfly bungalow

We just got our caterpillars in the mail today!  I decided to surprise my daughters with this and they are so happy.  We purchased this butterfly bungalow from Insect Lore last year and used it right away, but not since.  I found the bungalow hanging around the garage the other day and thought I'd order more caterpillars.

This is a very popular "toy" or gift idea for kids.  Most, if not all, kids love butterflies and they get to learn as they watch the caterpillars eat and grow and form into their cocoons and ultimately turn into beautiful painted lady butterflies.

There are several different sizes of the bungalows available.  We have the one pictured here, but there are larger ones, too and if you click on the link to the left it'll take you to Amazon where you can see them all.
