You’re probably familiar with Pillow Pets, stuffed animals which change like Transformers into comfy kid pillows. Since their introduction a few years back, they’ve inspired other dual-purpose plushy toys like Happy Nappers (also turns into a pillow), Pawggles (turns into slippers) and Treasure Chest Pets (hidden storage compartment). Now BlanKid Buddy ups the ante with the first 4-in-1 stuffed toy. What is BlanKid Buddy other than a stuffed animal? Just watch the commercial and listen to the catchy jingle — “It’s a blanket, a backpack and a pillow too!”
Now that’s the kind of multitasking functionality today’s kid can really appreciate. Choose Pailou the Panda, Makemba the Monkey or Lula the Ladybug.
