Travel…Comfortably

Packing for a trip is an exciting time for kids.  Wanting to take everything and the kitchen sink is a natural tendency.  One of our smart Pilloroo Moms shared with us her key for keeping toys, books and tiny articles to a manageable minimum: “Whatever fits in your Pilloroo can go!”  This is a fabulous idea!  A couple of books;  a set of action figures; a PSP and the tiny little games that go with it -can all fit in the Pilloroo Pouch and is just enough to keep kids entertained until they fall asleep…Hopefully!

Know Your Target Market

One of our first lessons on this journey was to learn our target market.  We have had the pleasure of meeting many of our customers.  If you asked me our target market I would say kids first – they love the hiding spot and the comfy pillow – and I would follow it with Moms, Grandmas and Aunts.  The longer I do this though, I am finding out target market doesn’t end there.

On Sunday I sent our new sales catalog to Kinkos.  I got a call an hour later from the sales person.  He told me how cool he thought these Pilloroos were and asked if he could buy one.  I was delighted!  When I brought it to the store, he totally lit up!  He thanked me and proceeded to show all the college age guys he was working with.  “That’s Pretty Cool” was the general response.

Everyone loves Pilloroos – They’re fun, and they keep your secrets!

That’s pretty cool.

Where Are They Now?

It’s the Cutest Thing I Have Ever Seen!

We are working on some exciting new products for 2010.  I am on the phone daily putting the little details together so we can launch some new cuddly Pilloroos this year.  I absolutely love showing the Pilloroo to people for the first time.  Today I was talking to Trudi who opened up our web page and exclaimed, the Pilloroo is “the cutest thing I have ever seen.”  This is not the first time I have heard this – but it really never gets old!

What Would You Hide in Your Pilloroo?

Dino 400Pilloroo has been on the road lately, and we have had one Big Question, “What would you hide in your Pilloroo?”  It has been so exciting hearing about what Pilloroo Fans are saying.  All of the fun and special things that can be hidden in the Pilloroo Pouch, are as different as every kid and adult who answers.  We thought we would share the answers, so we started a list.  Let’s see how big it will grow.

Come play with us, and add your own answer.  Leave a comment on this post, and we will add your answer to our ever growing list.  You can even forward this to a friend and invite them to play too.

Let us know the unique treasure you will leave hiding in your Pilloroo!

Creating Great Gifts

Baseball bear 400x400 with boxGrowing up, I always loved making gifts for people.  From decorated cakes to olive wood clocks, I enjoyed giving people something original that couldn’t be purchased just anywhere.  It has been a great pleasure to hear how customers are using our Pilloroos as gifts.  I really enjoy hearing the story behind the gift.

Last week a woman bought the Baseball Bash Pilloroo for the little boy who would be her ring bearer at her wedding.  Her fiance is a professional baseball player and since the ring bearer would be holding a pillow…The Pilloroo would make the perfect gift!  I think she really knocked that one out of the park.

For a limited time we will be selling the Baseball Bash Pilloroo for only $19.99 on our website.  If you have a gift to give..Knock it out of the Park with Pilloroo!
