My daughter has a pig collection and so this was the perfect addition. It works great and a little inner pocket to hold an Ipod or MP3 player, the speaker is on the back of the pig's head so your head can lay comfortably on the pillow and listen to music, stories, etc. It looks exactly like the picture and was a wonderful addition to her collection.

Just like C Forsyth says - this is a super little toy. It's cute, it really is soft, it really does work, and it really does look just like the picture. Sound quality may not be Carnegie Hall, but it's surprisingly good for such a modest price.
One small point. Your ipod slips into a small zipped pocket on one side of the pillow - once you've zipped the pocket shut, you can still turn the sound off or on by pressing the ipod dial through the pillow, but you can't rotate the dial or switch off your ipod unless you take it back out of the pocket. I'd guess most users will simply leave their ipod lying by the pillow.
I'd also like to how very helpful trandytoygift.com are.
We live in the UK, and this product is not available over here. It also cannot be shipped to the UK via Amazon. But an email to trendytoygift.com brought an instant positive response and, for a few extra dollars, two plush pink piggy pillows were shipped super-quick. Door to door in just seven days, from Massachusetts to The Old Farmhouse in the village of Buxted, in the county of East Sussex, England, through the snowiest December here in twenty years, with airports, roads and rail all closed. That's impressive.
So, a big thankyou to trendytoygift.com for a great little toy, some great customer service, and a lot of pleasure for two grand-daughters - and all for a very small outlay.

My daughter received this for Christmas. She also sleeps with it every night w/o the music playing. The only complaint she has is that you cannot turn up the music on the item. It is soft and hook up is easy but I would have to agree, the inability to turn it up is not great.
