Pet, Pillow, Blanket Rolled into One Comfy Critter
With Comfy Critters (Booth #E7705), kids don’t have to choose between bringing a stuffed animal, pillow, or blanket along for a trip. The wearable stuffed animals transform from a pet to a pillow to a hooded blanket and back again.
“We have a patented design that allows us to secure the garment inside the hood, and it’s made of 100% polyester chenille fleece,” said Frank Lenkerd, senior director of sales for Infinity Product Group, the apparel company behind Comfy Critters. “It’s a three-in-one design that’s great for pretend play, travel, and more.”
IAAPA Expo attendees have been drawn to the booth’s colorful collection to pet the soft animals, ranging from a shark to a unicorn.
“We also have licenses like ‘PAW Patrol,’ ‘PJ Masks,’ and ‘Peppa Pig,’” Lenkerd said. “In addition to that, we have a really talented design team that creates custom characters, like a dolphin, flamingo, or turtle.”
Comfy Critters first came onto the scene about five years ago and has expanded to be offered at brick-and-mortar stores.
