Adorable! Like cloned pets minus the lint roller!

LOVE the pillows, they are adorable and so soft like you're petting your pet!. I ordered my 3 pets at the same time (2 dogs 1 cat) for daughter going into college since she'll miss our pets terribly. I said 'they were cloned so she can take them with her minus the lint roller'! Thank you PawJoy!! PS: PawJoy also responded to my emails very timely, excellent customer service :-)

Gnocchi’s mini me

Gnocchi’s mini me is so well done! It looks perfect and the quality is amazing! They did a very good job with the picture I sent them. You don’t even see the background from the pic I sent . They were able to “crop” out my pup so well and it is the perfect size. I think I will give it to Gnocchi’s Grand ma so that she can always have a little piece of him even if we live far appart. Thanks pawjoy for this cool gift!

Double sided pillow

Good quality pillow. Bright colours. Company is easy to work with and the delivery was prompt

Six pack approved!

Absolutely love our keychain! Having six pups makes it difficult to find companies able to put all six into a product, even using a photo that includes them all, PawJoy had no issue in doing so! We never usually adventure with all six at once unless it’s an overnight trip, so now we are able to bring the whole pack with us wherever we may go! Very well made and perfect size too!

Sequence Pillow

We received our pillow yesterday and we absolutely love it! It is very good quality! The colour of the sequence is great! The picture also turned out amazing!
