Testimonials

"Pawdpet has become an essential piece of our family outings. Before the arrival of Pawdpet we invested in many different heavy duty protective style cases for both our phones and tablets, to ease our sense of mind while sharing our devices with our children. Pawdpet has brought a whole new level of protection, convenience, and style for our family. Our Pawdpet has saved the day by providing our children an extra snuggle, a playmate, and an innovative way to watch movies via their tablet. We are often leaving the store, park, restaurant, and school with people asking,"where can I get my own Pawdpet?"

-Sylvia, mom of two kids (8 and 7 years-old)

"My two daughters, ages 8 and 5, are obsessed with stuffed toys.  I would normally shoot down their request for more, but when I saw the PawdPet, I was enticed by its functionality.  The children use our old iPhones when we travel or go out to dinner, and  this makes the perfect carrier!  Plus, it acts as a stand for the phone when they watch their shows on the plane.  And the kids love their furry friends even when there is no electronic device in it.  The PawdPets are made well and are soft to the touch.... perfect for snuggling.  The kids enjoyed picking out their particular PawdPet not only based on its looks, but by the PawdPet's trait listed on the box.  At this price point, it's going to be my go-to birthday gift for my friends' kids.  Both kids and parents will love it!" -Gloria Kim, mom of two girls (8 and 5 years-old)


"My kids love PawdPets! They are so cute, cuddly and huggable! Finally, an iPad mini case that is so well thought out that it can function as a toy, a carrier, a stand and a protector. Plus it's so reasonably priced that we can purchase multiples. For those with kids who love stuffed animals and want to have a multifunctional case for your electronics, this is the perfect product for you!"  -Christine Laranang, mom of three kids (16 (boy), 9(girl), 7(boy) )

 "PawdPet is like no other on the market. It is soft, cuddly and absolutely adorable with a functional design to keep your little ones entertained. It not only holds and stores your child's electronic, PawdPet has created a place for your child to watch their favorite show while cuddling with their newest friend the PawdPet! We don't leave home without it! Thanks PawdPet!" -Tiffany Bufkin, mom of three kids (10 (girl), 8 (boy), & 5 (girl) ).


"PawdPet has been a life saver while traveling both internationally and locally with my girls! They love that they can be hands free while watching programs on their iPad mini's during flights and that they can snuggle with Bun Bun and Scout on long car rides! As a mother, I love PawdPets not only because it helps occupy my children but also because I know their devices won't get lost or damaged...all safe and snug in their PawdPets!" -Sonal Patel, mom of two girls (7 and 5 years-old)
" love my PawdPet! Not only is Bun Bun ADORABLE, Bun Bun can also hold my iPhone and keep it safe. I love it so much and want another!"  
-Candace 13

"PawdPets is a fabulous idea! Ever since I bought one for my daughter, we always know exactly where her iTouch is-either on Eukie's tummy or in her back pouch where it stays safe and sound." - Lori Wong, mom of three kids (15 (boy), 14(girl), 13(girl) )

"We all can use a functional and charming companion!  I like the quality - it's soft yet sturdy, and the strength of the magnet keeps the phone secure. Finally... I've been waiting for a product like this for years!  It delivers exactly what it promises."  -Sandy Oh, mom of two girls (16 and 12)

Your Support

With your support, we will be able to cover the cost of our initial production run.  We have identified a factory to manufacture PawdPet and our goal is to get them completed by Spring 2015.  We have sourced tech-safe Neodymium magnets, which will be strong enough to hold and position your device, no problem!  Plus, we are sourcing the best faux furs to ensure quality plush for a premium product.   Our goal is to provide our customers with quality product that is cute, functional and practical.  If we exceed our goal, we can move forward with phase II of development of expanding our PawdPet posse!  

Your support brings joy, comfort and convenience to kids and parents everywhere.  Kids will be happy to take along their new PawdPet because it's cute and snuggly.  Parents will love PawdPet because it protects and keeps the most expensive "toy" safe and sound.  Kids LOVE it and it's parents approved!
