Do Not Want For Valentine’s Day: Make-Out Practice Pillow

“When I was in middle school, everyone joked about making out with pillows for practice,” said Emily King, the designer who created the Make-Out Practice Pillow. “I’m assuming that I was not the only one for whom the jokes had some truth.”

Emily, who was inspired to make the pillow with a mouth after coming across some CPR dummies in a dumpster near her house, is aware that the finished product, which sells for $30, is incredibly creepy. Still, she has love for the thing and thinks it would make a great Valentine’s Day gift:

“I have to admit that when I mentioned this idea to my friends, the reaction from anyone over the age of 25 tended to be variations on ‘that’s really creepy,. and anyone under the age of 25 thought it was hilarious and awesome: middle-school to college-age seemed to be the sweet spot of people who really liked the idea…I thought it was pretty hilarious myself until I actually made the things. They are super creepy. But I sort of love them for that.”


I no longer need practice kissing. Been there, done that. But come to think of it, the Make-Out Practice Pillow could be good for catching crumbs when I eat in bed, talking to when I’m lonely or scaring away unwanted house guests. But it’s just not worth the fear that it would try to eat me in my sleep.
