2013 Holiday Gift Guide: Glow Pets Light Up The Toy Aisle This Holiday Season

New from the maker of Pillow Pets and Dream Lites, Glow Pets are the amazing light-up pets that also transform into an extra comfortable and soft pillow. Poised to be a stand-out toy this holiday season, these cuddly critters are the perfect gift for little ones, but parents will love them, too. Whether kids have difficulty settling down or they just need a familiar companion to ensure a good night’s sleep, Glow Pets make bedtime a breeze and will help little ones drift off to dreamland long after the excitement of the holidays is gone.

Aside from being a plush, Glow Pets are ideal for bedtime, especially around the holidays when schedules are disrupted and wreak havoc on nighttime routines,” said Jason Biziak, Vice President, Ontel Products Corporation. “And, Glow Pets also make great travel companions, not only during the season but throughout the entire year.”

Children will find Glow Pets hard to part with as these super-soft cuddly companions are perfect for playtime, story time or anytime. When the button on a pet’s paw is pressed, the pet emits a soft light to help ease children to sleep. Each pet contains a special LED light that creates a glow without producing heat, and a built-in timer that automatically shuts off after 20 minutes. Children can simply secure the pet’s tummy with the attached strap to create a plush animal, and pull the strap to release the pet into pillow form.

Every child has a favorite bedtime toy, but what’s wonderful about Glow Pets is they are so much more than just another stuffed animal,” said Laurie Schacht, Toy Insider Mom. “Glow Pets serve multiple functions – as a nightlight, pillow and friend making them the perfect addition to a child’s bedroom, particularly for those kids who have trouble sleeping.”
