Fleece Penguin Tied Pillow Craft Kit
Awesome girls Bday craft
My daughter's 10th birthday party was a PJs theme. What better to make, then pillows.The girls loved these, they were easy and they all loved their pillows. They were very excited to bring them home.
Great Birthday party favor. Now when the girls look at their pillows they will remember my daughter's party. :)

Fun and Cute!
Loved the idea of making something the kids would love and want to use all the time. Perhaps a bit challenging for 8yr olds, but manageable. Over 9 or 10 years old is probably more age appropriate in terms of skill level.

Fun & Useful Winter Craft
I bought this craft for my grand children to do on those cold winter days when they have to stay in the house to avert boredom. The craft is fun to do,and you have a useful item when it is completed, not just something to hang from a window or place on a shelf. They loved doing it,and they love using the pillows.

The fleece pillow kits were a big hit with all the children at our family Christmas party. We even had some ask for the extra kits to give their friends for Christmas gifts. Children under the age of six required help and supervision, but all of them ended up with a fun treasure to take home. Our two-year-old granddaughter held hers tightly the whole afternoon and refused to set it down.

I made two of these with my neices and the rest were made by my students. They were easy enough for 1st and 4th Graders to make. They cme precut and were easy to assemble. I would recommend having some extra filling for extra fluffiness.

Great customer service
I ordered these pillows to make at my daughter's birthday party. I read the reviews before ordering and knew that there may be a problem with the printing or cutting of the fabric. I opened all packages immediately and discovered that 1 panel had the ties cut off. I called and was sent a whole set of pillows along with a free gift! Customer service was fantastic and it arrived even quicker than they told me. I will order from Oriental Trading again knowing that if there's a problem, they are quick to fix it.

Not as appears
Sad that nothing has improved in the past 3 yrs with these pillows. Should have read the reviews before buying. My son (9) was making them for gifts. We'll need to request replacements for some that are wrong so we have enough for the people he wanted to give them to.
The picture is cute but fabric is thin, not cut correctly, and definitely not enough stuffing.
We added more stuffing & I sewed around the edge of the pillow so the stuffing doesn't fall out since the ties aren't even. Save your money & buy fleece at your local fabric store to make them completely on your own.
Great idea but they're cheap and not worth the frustration. Guess we got what we paid for this time. :(

Plan to make ahead of time
I purchased these to make in the classroom as gifts for parents. I am glad we made these well enough in advance, as 6 panels were defective. The penguins' heads or feet were cut off. Oriental was very helpful in replacing them and we received our replacements within a few days.

Cute but Less Vivrant Color Than Pictured
These pillows are absolutely adorable and easy to make. The only minor comment is that the pillows were a little less vivrant in color than I thought the product picture shows. Other than that, these pillow will make great winter holiday gifts for any child/pre-teen, especially when paired with the penguin pencils and notepads.
