Christmas Wishes - elo My Storytime Pillow Review and GIVEAWAY!

The holidays are nearly here. Your little ones are sure to be dreaming of sugarplums and a visit from Santa. Of course they can only dream after they have fallen asleep, which at times is quite impossible to achieve, especially with the holiday excitement.

My little ones do not specifically protest bedtime like some kids do. They are usually ready to start the process as soon as I say so, but it's the process that takes a long time, especially when we get to story time. My kids love stories, and being so far apart in age/maturity as well as opposite genders, they usually want different stories, at the same time.

Obviously that is quite impossible. My son is 8 and, although he has autism, is incredible intelligent. He can read to himself on at least a 5th grade level (he is in 3rd grade), but he still prefers to be read to. A love of literature is something to be treasured, so I always want to encourage that as much as I can.

I hate not being able to read to them both at once unless I read the same story. I am so glad that I discovered a solution to that problem. A fabulous, cuddly, soft, comforting, reading solution. The elo My Sotrytime Pillow is exactly what I needed.


Of course, I still want to read to my kids myself to bond and spend time with them, but elo makes it much easier for kids to be patient. Now, while one kid is waiting, elo can tell them a story too, so they are not feeling bored or left out while I am busy with the other child. There is much less fighting over me, but of course, now they both want elo.

I will just get a second one, though, and then things will be very happy around here. Then they can have all the stories they want, they can keep listening until they fall asleep. And to ensure they won't play(not that they would), Elo Pillow only reads if the child is lying on it.

This is such an amazing product. I wish that this had been a round sooner, but I am so thrilled to have a reading helper that my kids love so much. A love of reading is priceless and the gift of elo is like the gift that keeps on giving. I think every child should have one.

While I can't give one to every child, elo has been generous enough to offer an elo My Storytime Pillow to one very lucky reader. Enter via the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win this incredible prize. Good luck.

  1. The Elo My Story Time Pillow would make a perfect gift for any one with kids! Usually those fun noisy toys kids love to get, parents hate. But, the Elo Story Time Pillow would be a gift children and their parents will love! Every parent is begging Santa for the gift of sleep! I know I certainly am! I have a 14 month old and neither one of us knows what sleep is. My son is constantly fighting bed time, and waking every 2 hours during the night. I know an Elo My Story Time Pillow is the only thing we are hoping Santa puts under our tree!

  8. It would make a great gift for my daughter who cannot fall asleep unless someone read or sing to her so this would be perfect.

  9. This would make such a great gift for a couple of kids in my family because they love books, but are too young to read themselves. This would be great for nap time or bedtime when they want one story after another read to them. Instead, they could drift off to sleep listening to this. This is a really neat product. One child in the family is crazy about Clifford, so they would love this.

  17. It would make a great gift for my son because sometimes one story is not enough for him. He wants more, but we recently made a one-bedtime-story rule. This might make the transition easier for him.

  18. It would be a great gift for me. I love story time! (Just kidding!) Seriously, my grandchildren would love it and they would have to take turns sharing it.

  25. I think it will help my grandsons to fall asleep on the nights they sleep over... I have one who has a hard time falling asleep and this would be wonderful for him so he can wake up refreshed and not so cranky in the morning.
