Okay, so we all know that Pillow Pets are some of the most popular gifts of the season...I have seen so many people purchasing one or more Pillow Pets, every time I am at Wal-Mart lately. Our local store has a huge display of Pillow Pets in the front aisle near cash-registers, and it seems to be the #1 item I've seen people buy. But, did you know Pillow Pets now has games for children too? Yep! Pillow Pets recently released 2 games for children...Dreamland Adventure Game, and Dreamland Matching Game. I was sent these 2 games to review, and they are a big hit with the family! (I also received a Snuggly Puppy Pillow Pet, and M loves him!). So, we sat down to play these games this afternoon. We started off with the adventure game. The concept of this game sort of reminds me of Candy Land. For 2-4 players, each player gets to choose from an assortment of Pillow Pets "characters" for their playing piece. You move along the board by spinning the dial. If the spinner points to a color, obviously you move to that color square on the board. But, there are also a few different squares. If you land on a Pillow Pet animal square, you get to draw a card from the deck...which has a Pillow Pet on it! If you land on a cage, you lose one Pillow Pet card. The goal is to collect 4 Pillow Pet cards, and be the first one to make it to Dreamland. Basic enough that even a young child can play and have fun, but my 10 and 13 year old sisters enjoyed it too!
The Dreamland Matching Game, is, obviously, a Pillow Pet-themed Memory game. Except that kids love playing this even more, because they're matching their Pillow Pet pals to the corresponding Pillow Pet Pillow! Again, this is a game for young children or even those that are a little more "mature". My sisters played this one a few times this afternoon...of course, they each tried to get the card for their Pillow Pet. And yes, their Pets were both at the table with them while they played!

The neat thing with these games is that they're lots of fun by themselves. But, because they're based on all the Pillow Pets characters, kids love them even more! Check out Lovemypillowpets.com for more information, or to order your own set of games!
Pillow Pets is giving BOTH new Games (Dreamland Adventure and Dreamland Matching) AND a Pillow Pet (winner chooses from Ms. Ladybug, Snuggly Puppy, or Unicorn), to one of my readers! Now THAT'S a great gift!
