The Original Pillow Pet now has a website in the UK!

The lovely people at Mookie toys sent Jack a Pillow Pet for his expert opinion. He instantly jumped up and down when it arrived and asked if he could take him to bed that night! We were sent a cuddly penguin. The Pillow Pet is easy to wash, a quick cool wash in a white pillow case, left to air dry and they are good to go again. 

Pillow Pets are the new premium quality plush toy made of ultra-soft and cuddly chenille but with a clever twist. When the hidden strap is released underneath, the cuddly creature transforms from a toy into a soft pillow, making the Pillow Pet a perfect travelling pal, naptime buddy and all round snuggly friend.

There are eight super-cute Pillow Pets available exclusively from Mookie Toys.  The range includes Silly Monkey, Playful Penguin, Comfy Panda, Snuggly Puppy, Magical Unicorn and Wiggly Pig, not forgetting Ms Ladybug and Bumbly Bee!  And especially for Easter, Cuddly Bunny, Thumpy Bunny, Puffy Duck and Fluffy Bunny.

Pillow Pets will become a must-have for all ages; from toddlers to teens and expectant mothers to grandmothers.  Snuggle up with your very own Pillow Pet, catching forty winks has never been more fun! 

Beware as there are a number of companies out there selling counterfeit pillow pets.

A £10 off voucher with Brantano - hand in your old shoes and help save tiny lives!


Celebrity mum Nancy Sorrell launches 2012 ‘New for Old’ campaign with baby charity Tommy’s and Brantano Footwear

Anyone looking for a good excuse to revamp their shoe collection after the winter months can get a helping hand from Brantano – and in turn give baby charity Tommy’s a helping hand to save tiny lives.

On Monday 27th February 2012 the ‘New for Old’ campaign with Tommy’s & Brantano Footwear launches: the campaign asks people to give shoes they no longer want to their nearest Brantano store nationwide from Monday 27th February to Sunday 25th March Brantano will donate 20p to Tommy’s for every pair of shoes handed in, to help fund the charity’s research into pregnancy complications such as miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.

Model, TV presenter and mum, Nancy Sorrell, is backing the campaign and asking everyone to follow in her own – very colourful – footsteps.  She says: "I’m sure we’re all guilty of hoarding lots of shoes we never wear – I know I am! But anyone that’s had a complication in pregnancy will know how valuable Tommy’s is, and the work they do in helping more people to have healthy babies is so important. By handing over your shoes to Brantano stores you can help the charity’s research into pregnancy complications, and help other mums to become mums.”

Furthermore, customers who bring in their old shoes will also receive a £10 off voucher to redeem against any purchases of £40 or more at Brantano Footwear – giving you further help when it comes to kick-starting your spring wardrobe.

Tommy's funds vital research into pregnancy complications, in the hope that fewer families in the UK suffer the trauma of losing a baby at pregnancy or birth.

Unfortunately pregnancy complications - such as premature birth, miscarriage and stillbirth - are more common than people think:
  • 1 in 4 UK women lose a baby at pregnancy or birth
  • Every day in England and Wales alone, around 290 women experience a miscarriage, approximately 149 babies are born prematurely and 10 babies are stillborn.
  • In Scotland, about 25 women experience a miscarriage and 2 babies are born preterm every day, and one baby is stillborn every second day.

This is why Tommy’s funds internationally-renowned research into pregnancy problems.  The charity also provides a free information service to educate all parents-to-be about health in pregnancy, and offers bereavement counselling support for anyone that has lost a baby during pregnancy or birth.

‘New for Old’ will be running from Monday 27th February to Sunday 25th March 2012 in all Brantano stores nationwide. For more information visit and for your nearest store go to
