Have you noticed just how many different gift ideas for kids this Christmas that have a cuddly animal theme? These gifts can be equally appealing for boys and for girls alike so let’s just see what available.

Firstly, a most sought after gift for kids this Christmas is the Pillow Pet. They arrived in the UK in spring 2012 and for those of you not in the know, a Pillow Pet is just what the name suggests: a pillow on the underside with a pet on the top. They have a Velcro strap that allows the animal to sit up when not in use. In the last month we have seen a fabulous, limited edition fantasy range of 18 inch Pillow Pets arrive in the UK. But be careful, there are a number of fake Pillow Pets around so we would urge you to make sure by double checking that you are buying the genuine pillow pet product from an official stockist.

Another animal gift that will help to keep your kids feet warm this winter are the novelty animal slippers. We know how hard it can sometime be for children to keep slippers on their feet however, we are confident that they will just love to always wear their animal slippers.

Kids love soft cuddly and especially animal toys that will keep them warm and cosy at bedtime.
