I had several of these, I had the Pillow Fighter who was yellow with boxing shorts and red gloves and had a black eye, I had some others too. I still have a little one, she's Stormy or something? Pale blue with pink and blue stripes on her legs and arme, lightning bolt in her mouth and on her heard. Fighter finally died in a traic dryer accident.

I've had my Pillow Friend, as I call him, for about 20 years. He's traveled to Europe and Mexico with me and still sleeps with me every night. ;) I'm not ashamed at all.

I have Mr. Sandman, It's about 20 years old, I love it and I still have it sitting on my bed, and on occasional bad night cuddle with it... Its definatly seen better days.

I was so jealous of my friends who had them!!! Now when I watch re-runs of Full House, it always makes me smile when DJ runs to her Pillow Pal for comfort.

Yeah Dj from Fullhouse had one with a window on its face? Or at least it looked like a window.

I got the baby one when i was born, i've taken it everywhere with me since and she sleeps with me every night. Im not ashamed, i love her... i call her Person because thats all i could say when i was little to describe her. For my 18th birthday this year i also got another one... i've called this one Pinky due her being pink lol! She also has a bright blue eyes, has pink legs with black fishnets and black shoes with a red love heart on the front, she also carries a white handbag. I hope to purchase more... they are brilliant!

I too had the baby one. I can remember getting it for my 3rd birthday. Baby has been re-stuffed, cleaned, sewed, new lace you name it. She still looks pretty ratty because I slept with her every year for 21 years. Now that I'm married, Baby is in a nice storage spot. I'd love to find one to give to my own children one day!

I have one of these on my son's bed. It was my husbands and BOTH of them loved it so much that it's starting to wear thin!

I had Rock-a-bye Baby for about ten years, and by the end she was threadbare and had been sewn and resewn in about a zillion places. My mom and I got in a fight when I was 13 and she didn't survive. I still miss her sometimes and I'm 23 now.

I remember when these were popular! I HATED them. How stupid! I still think they're incredibly lame. Who wants to play with a stuffed window or door? Not me.

I had one along time ago. It was pillow fighter, I think I was like 6 or something, but I always had dreams of devils or demons like getting out of it......Really scary dreams I still remember it very well.....lol. I could sleep anywhere near it after those dreams.

I have Rock-a-bye Baby. I didn't have it as a kid though I wanted one. I found it at a thrift store and felt like I had totally hit the Jackpot. It's funny in Full House when DJ and Stephanie are arguing about whether to give Michelle DJ's Pillow Person or Mr. Bear.

A lot of people are cuddlers. Well let me chime in for the boys. I was pretty big into WWF (not WWE) and I used to lay mine on the couch and climb to the top ropes (arm of said chair) and drop the "supafly jimmy snucka elbow" on him. GET SOME!

I had BIG FOOTSTEPS, took him to college with me too. My roommate wanted one so bad. My dog chewed his nose off so I made him a new one, braided his hair. Kept him until my dad's basement flooded and he threw him away. He was a great friend, nice and comfy to lay on too.

So, I just found my Pillow Person (the one in the pink dress with the blonde pigtails) in my parents house while cleaning out for a move. I was shocked when I found that they were such a hot item online (the same one is currently going on ebay for over $60). Now, I just have to decide do I cherish it enough to keep (and will my daughter ever want it)? Or, should I sell it?? Hmmmm...

I've been trying to find a tote I had for forever. I'm not sure if it was part of the Pillow People line or something similar, but it was a pink fleece tote with handles at the top. It had a face on one side of the bag and legs and arms attached to it. It looked just like a Pillow Person, only it was a tote bag instead of a pillow. Anyone else have one of these or ever seen one?

Hi, I'm sorry its not about pillows but I am desperate... I am looking for a game I bought from a toy party in the 80's. It was called "Who Burst the Box" It was a telephone box that was kept together with a lid. It had a number of foam shaped people in 4 colours. What you had to do was hold the lid and poke the people in through the side panels, then let go of the lid. Hopefully the sides wouldn,t burst. If they did you were out. You would carry on until one person was left & that person would be the winner. Does anyone know where I can get this game???????

After 18 years I found my sons Mr. Pillow Fighter again today. We had put it into storage after Hurricane Andrew destroyed our home in 1992. Needless to say, I was glad to finally find him. I told my son today (who's 24) that I found his Mr. Pillow Fighter and that I am holding him Randsom. Haven't decided what I going to ask for yet, but I got a feeling I'll get what I ask for.

I got a mini pillow person from my grandma when I was 5 she found it at a yard sale and it was almost a dog toy :(. it's pink has a heart nose, hearts on its legs and hat, kisses on its cheeks, and a heart in the middle that used to say snuggle up before it faded. Any idea what the name of this one is, I can't find it anywhere.
