Squeezy Pillow Review
Kids love light-up toys, and they also love plush pillows, so the makers of Squeezy Pillow have released what should be a no-brainer product that combines the two. Squeezy Pillow is a soft plush pillow that includes dozens of LED lights that create attractive patterns on one side, and a smiley face on the other. To use Squeezy Pillow, you simply squeeze it to engage the lights, which will stay on for 15 minutes before automatically shutting off. When the pillow is lit, the 24 LED lights will pulsate and change colors.
If you squeeze the corner, Squeezy Pillow will record and repeat back up to 7 seconds of audio, which adds another dimension of fun to the product. The outer cover can be removed and washed, but the pillow itself should probably be kept dry and wiped clean if necessary.
Overall, Squeezy Pillow is a pretty neat invention, and I think kids will like it. The cost of about $30 (when shipping is factored in) seems a bit high for what you get, as this feels more like a $15-$20 item at best.
As you can see in the screen shot above, there is a claim that over 2 million have been sold. I doubts that 2,000,000 Squeezy Pillows have been sold because the math just doesn’t add up to me. Consider that the website for Squeezy Pillow was only created in July 2017, and the product’s Facebook page has less than 100 likes as of this writing. I’ve never seen Squeezy Pillow in stores, and I had never heard of this product until the last few weeks. If I had to guess, I would suggest that the “2 million” number is attributed to Bright Light Pillow, which was heavily marketed a few years ago and did sell like hotcakes for a while. From what I can tell, these items are virtually identical, except for the voice recorder which has been added. Perhaps this is a “new version” of that product, which is where the “2 million” claim comes into play. You may want to peruse comments on Bright Light Pillow, as they seem to apply to Squeezy Pillow as well.
As you may have guessed, there are numerous light up pillows for kids already on the market, ranging in price from about $7 – $20 (which puts Squeezy Pillow at the high end of the scale).
