Kids say (1 ):

Pillow Pets is a very accessible game for young players, though those players are also the most susceptible to the consumerism that is inherent to this title. As players explore the magical world of Dreamland, they must find every one of the Pillow Pets, each of which corresponds to a real-life product in the Pillow Pets brand. This forges a bond between players and every one of the pillows. The game itself is simple and easy to play, and players who have a Pillow Pet will likely enjoy the way their favorite pillow animal is brought to life in this game, but the underlying sense of product placement is something that should be considered.
