*Review Sample Provided
We are already big fans of the adorable toys Jay at Play makes, having previously reviewed both a Happy Napper and a CuddleUppet from them. It was exciting to hear that they've expanded their collection to add J-Animals, Tummy Stuffers Wild Ones, and HideAway Pets!
Both of my kids instantly fell in love with the Hideaway Pets and were so excited when the Hedgehog arrived at our home for review. We think he feels so incredibly soft, you just want to give him a snuggle as soon as you pick him up. As you can see from my seven year old holding the Hedgehog, it's a good size at 15" and is a substantially sized cuddly friend. I think he has the sweetest little face, don't you?
Each pet also comes with a circular adventure card with their name and a fact about them. Ours is technically named "Mama" but my kids decided that he should be renamed Harold the Hedgehog. Don't ask, I have no idea where that came from. But I guess they, like their own mama, like alliteration!
What makes the HideAway Pets unique, is how they also curl up to hide away. There is a little snap that holds them in place, and in this ball like form you can even gently roll it around. Both kids think that's super fun. If turned the right way, with the back facing up, it even looks like a puffy round accent pillow at first glance when sitting on my daughter's bed.
The Hedgehog is also the perfect size for a little travel sized pillow for my little guy, who'll be three at the end of this month. He thinks it so funny to take his new friend to nap time and be in bed together. It's so cute when he turns his head and gives the Hedgehog periodic kisses on his nose.
The Hedgehog HideAway Pet was such a big hit that I think another little friend might be coming to join our family soon, so both kids will have their own. I think the Siberian Husky is also adorable!
You can order your very own Hideaway Pet online and get this adorable Hedgehog at Toys R Us, Target, and Kmart nationwide either now or very shortly, they are starting to arrive in stores!. Suggested retail price is $19.99. You can also follow Hideaway Pets on Facebook and Twitter.
