Fleece Monkey Tied Pillow Craft Kit
Great naptime pillow!
I bought these for my 3 year old, who just started preschool. She needed a pillow for naptime, and when I saw these, I had to get them (even though I only needed 1). It only took me about 15 minutes to assemble, and she loves it. My only complaint is that it took all the filling from one plus half from a second pillow to get it stuffed to where it was comfortable to lay on. Otherwise, fabulous!

great family project
i wanted to try this with 4 of my grandchildren that were visiting. It was great! Even the 15 yr old one didn't grumble. they also made great car pillows for the ride home.

This pillow is a cute idea for the monkey or safari themed party. It is a sweet craft to make and send home with the kids.

The kids loved it!
We made these pillows at my daughter's 5th bday party. I did them 3/4 of the way so it would not be so time consuming. I then had the kids fill and tie (with their parents) the rest of the pillow. All oif the kids brought them in the next day for nap time. The fleece is not high quality so youhave to be careful not to pull on the knots too tight, but otherwise it worked well. Yes, some of the monkeys were not centered on the pillow, but the kids did not notice. They made great party favors and for the price who is going to complain.

I bought these for my five year old son and I to make for his aunt for her birthday. They were very easy to assemble, but it is time consuming and hard to keep him sitting to do. May be better for a child 7 and up.

These were a huge hit with a party full of 12 year old girls. They required no adult intervention at all- in fact, they sat and worked on them while they were watching a movie. I agree that the fleece is not great quality, but they were really cute when they were finished. If you tie too tightly, there are gaps in the "seam." The girls easily figured that out though and the end products were really soft and cuddly.

Easy, Fun Project, good results
I did this project with individuals with disablities and they loved it. Very easy to do, most of them even tied the pillows on their own and knew what to do. They were very pleased with the results and were showing them off to everybody. They turn out to be the perfect size, and I found that contrary to other reviews, we had enough sutffing.

This product was very disappointing. Not enough stuffing, monkeys not centered. The quality of the fleece was poor and stretched and broke off while tying.

I bought these for my daughters to make gifts for their friends. The ties do not match up between the pieces and the fabric stretches out a lot when you are making them. There was enough stuffing, but the picture is not centered on the fabric. They end up looking cute, though!
