Hey folks! Welcome to day 3 of Mixed Bag Mama's Birthday Extravaganza Giveaway Event! Today I'm happy to share with you our experience with KidFit Pillow AND give one away to one lucky winner! More details on the giveaway at the end of this post.
KidFit Pillow was developed by a chiropractor who also happened to be a father. Little attention had been paid to properly supportive pillows for children, so he decided to make one! I was excited when I came across them because I had been wondering since my daughter was around a year old why you didn't see more toddler-sized pillows on the market. I have to say, now that we have tried one out, KidFit Pillows are just all around awesome!
First of all, they come in 3 different sizes (all of which are designed to properly support your child's head) which are color coded by the piping around the edges. As you can see in the above picture, we received the Stage 1 Pillow, which is for kids age 2-4 and is indicated by the gold piping. The Stage 2 Pillow (green) is suited for children age 5-7 and the Stage 3 (blue) for kids 8-11 years old. With three different size options, you are sure to find a pillow that is just the right size for your child, no matter what age!There is a lot more to KidFit Pillows than meets the eye on the outside. The pillow cases are made with super soft microfiber that are hypo-allergenic and machine washable. (Have a drooler? That microfiber should soak it right up!) The memory foam inside is also zipped in a removable case that is also washable. Let's face it: With kids, the more things that are washable, the better!
Speaking of memory foam, KidFit Pillows are made with high quality foam that is strategically perforated with holes to allow better airflow and temperature regulation. Pretty cool, huh?! I'm not a memory foam expert, but this does seem very durable. I wouldn't suggest letting your little one use this pillow in a pillow fight. lol
I decided to go ahead and wash the pillow before I let Myka use it. As you can see in the picture above, it is super fluffy and soft!
So, what did we think of the KidFit Pillow? Overall, I really liked it. On a scale of 1-10 and 10 being "This is awesome!", I'd say Myka would give it a 6 or 7. She's not quite 2, so it is a little big, but the main thing with her is she takes after her mom and moves around a lot while she's sleeping. She stays on the pillow half the time, if that, during naps and overnight. However, when she does stay on it, she seems to sleep a lot more soundly and not move NEARLY as much!
Here you can get an idea of the size of the Stage 1 Pillow.
I love the idea of having appropriately sized pillows for kids that are also designed to be supportive and more breathable. Maybe I haven't been looking in the right place, but as I mentioned earlier, toddler pillows just seems like a totally untapped market to me! I love that she will be able to use this one for several years and any siblings after her since it is of such high quality. I also like that it is washable, especially since she takes after her dad and gets hot while she's sleeping most of the time. Now I just wish she would stay on it more often!
Also, before I stop yammering on, I'd just like to say that this Stage 1 Pillow would be a great size for a travel pillow for adults. Myka just got over a cold recently and I couldn't help but think this would be a great solution for sick kids as well. Since the pillow has their head elevated, it should help with sinus drainage!
