7 Reasons Why You Should Buy A SquishyFacedCrew 3D Pillow or a Cuddle Clone (according to the thousands customers who bought them)
We wanted to dive a little bit deeper and explore the why behind the buy. What are the most common reasons why you, our customers, buy personalised cuddly toys or 3D pillows featuring your pet.
I mean, we feel like we know, but we wanted to dive deep into the data to explore the main reasons why tens of thousands of you have celebrated your pet with SquishyFacedCrew. The ultimate goal? to answer the question 'why should I buy a cuddle clone or a 3D pillow'. Lets dive in
1. Your pet really is one of a kind
A pets personality is as unique as their coat. Every pet is different and every pet is special. The number one reason given for buying a SquishyFacedCrew 3D pillow is celebrating your pet. Your pet really is one of a kind, and here at SquishyFacedCrew, we're hear to celebrate ALL pets. Tens of thousands of pet shaped pillows later, featuring horses, dogs, cats, reptiles, birds and humans - we just want to celebrate the pilow-ee!
2. You need a gift which is going to ACE the holidays or that special someones birthday
Buying gifts is incredibly difficult. When it comes to buying gifts for pet mums and dads, it gets even harder. Do you go with some dog clothing which may or may not fit? Or perhaps a portrait? These gifts are closely aligned to personal taste, so they can be challenging. We sell dozens of canvas art designs for example, with your pet as an astronaut, queen or sporting mega-star - but you need to know the owners tastes and interests to ensure you get the right one
A Cuddle clone or 3D pillow is easier and safer though. You know that crazy cat lady in your life LOVES cuddles with Bella, and a 3D cushion or custom handmade cuddly toy of Bella is certain to ace the Holidays.
Gifting is key reason why you folks buy personalised pet products from SquishyFacedCrew
Top Tip for gift buyers. Both our cuddly toys and 3D pillows can be created with the pet in a range of positions, and for the pillow especially, the photo used is key. We offer a see it before we ship it proof service, it may make sense to purchase a product and share with the recipient to ensure their perfect photo is used. Either that or ask them to share their 3 all time fave photos of their pet, and we can work with you to help choose the ones which will work best
3. A dearly loved pet has crossed the rainbow bridge
If I was to have guessed, I would have had this as the number one reason why people buy pet shaped pillows and cuddle clones.
Our pets are a huge part of our family and losing them as easily as tough as losing any other family member. In fact pet based bereavement is arguably one of societies most misunderstood emotions. If you haven't been there you simply can't always appreciate the strength of the bond between an owner and their pet.
We've always said that our personalised pillows and cuddly toys will NEVER replace a lost pet, but they can fill a small part of that huge void.
They let you put your pet back on their favourite seat, sit on the bed or sofa again, have cuddles on demand and act as a wonderful reminder of just how awesome and unique that pet really was
4. Travelling away from home
This has been much less relevant of the last 12 months of Covid-19 but in the past this has been a huge reason for buying a cuddle clone or 3D pillow.
Travelling for school, university, work, hospital visits or any other such reason takes us away from the family pet.
University and college especially are huge life changing moments. University students go from cocooned in their family home one minute to a whole brave new world of student living the next - you'd be amazed how many folks feel homesickness the strongest when it relates to their pets. Mom and dad, you're missed, but Filo....!
5. You lost the custody battle and Buddy will be staying with the ex
This ranks up there with bereavement and unlike with children, shared custody and pets is very rarely 'a thing'.
If your ex has the dog, you're highly unlikely to see much of Buddy again and that is a fact of life sadly.
A sizeable enough proportion of our polled customers responded with this reason for buying a cuddle clone
6. Your plush can go places your real pet can't....
Weddings, planes, trains, university, work, the office etc etc there are so many places where our furry friends cannot go but where a Plush or 3D pillow pet can. Yup life isn't fair, but some battles we cannot fight!!
