Nook kindly provided a luxury body pillow for me to review, and the minute it arrived an epic family snuggle commenced.
As I tore into the package containing my Nook Pebble Body Pillow, my husband lurked, waiting for his chance to try it out. I unzipped the bag and at first grasp (and gasp..it was shockingly soft) my husband reached for “my precious.” Me unwilling to let go, fell with him to the living room floor. We both laid there oohing and aahing over the amazing quality and texture. The commotion caught our son’s attention and he came running to see what the fuss was about. Immediately, he shoved his way in. Before we knew it, we were marooned to the outer edges and the two year old sprawled victoriously across the entire thing. We were cracking up as the “king of the pillow” lay completely limp with his eyes closed as though he’d been sleeping there for hours. As ridiculous as it sounds…and probably looked…I am not ashamed. This pillow is sensational!
In attempts to prove that I’m not crazy, my mother came over the next day for a quick visit, and I just HAD to show off the new pillow. Yes, it was probably a weird thing to do, but knowing she shares a mutual love for crazy comfy bedding, I just wanted to see her reaction. Oh my goodness, one touch and her jaw dropped to the floor as she snatched that sucker right out of my arms. She stood there bear hugging it with her eyes tightly shut, as though she had been whisked off to a spa getaway. After a drawn-out pause, I started to chuckle which snapped her out of her reverie; upon opening her eyes she lifted the pillow toward me and said, “Oh, hi, have you met my boyfriend?” We both started laughing out loud and I told her that it was time to end the relationship because I was taking “him” back!
I would like to say that I’ve managed to keep it all to myself, but my husband was not so quick to give up. We compromised by laying the body pillow across the top of the bed, and now sleep on it rather than the others. It works beautifully. It has plenty of body to it, and the softness combined with the memory foam pellets inside make it perfect for always feeling full and fresh (and despite us moving around in the night, it doesn’t have to be repositioned). It requires zero plumping or fluffing and maintains a really crisp and clean scent. The cover is simple to wash, and we now only have ONE pillow to worry about!
Before I get off my soapbox, I would just like to say that there’s scarcely anything in my house that’s cuddlier, more snuggly, or as “yummy” as this darn pillow. Nook has mastered the art of making bedtime even more glorious than before—a task I thought impossible!
