Pillow Pets was founded in 2003 in San Diego, Calif. According to the official Pillow Pets website, the concept for combining a pillow and a plush toy came from one mother's desire to no longer pick up plush toys from the floor of her children's bedrooms. Since 2003, the company has vastly expanded to become a successful retail and wholesale product manufacturer.

The main line of Pillow Pets has over sixty different animals to choose from, including koalas, zebras, and a Tyrannosaurus rex. Furthermore, Pillow Pets has partnered with many companies to create a merchandise line based on television shows and movies. For example, there are Pillow Pets based on various Disney movies, including Frozen, Cars, Lion King, and Winnie the Pooh. Other unique Pillow Pets are Scooby-Doo, Shrek, Thomas the Tank Engine and Spongebob Squarepants.

Many Pillow Pets come in two different sizes, 18 inches and 30 inches. However, the koala Pillow Pet only comes in an 18 inch size. Pillow Pets are recommended for children ages 3 and up.
