I'm back making yet another post about a knock-off toy! This seems to be a toy that capitalized on the success of Pillow People. However, I've got to be honest. They are WAY cuter. Granted, I never had a Pillow People plush so there is no sentimental value there for me. Also, I have NEVER cared for Full House so I never remember seeing the Pillow People on TV either?

So, here are a few I've come across.

I have also seen mention of a pig from a long expired eBay auction. There is also possibly a mouse one?

I have the pig:



  I have to agree that they're cuter, and what I like is, at least with the pig I have, it's about half the size of a larger Pillow People person, so therefore a little easier to store/display.

I don't know if yours is? They tend to have snouts, etc. Not just printed on features.

Here's an elephant one. :)
