Because we want the best for your children and ours, Maovic pillows are made from organic buckwheat hulls, which means they are free of pesticides.
- Anti-dust mites.
- Small in size (10" x 16"), they are designed to be dragged everywhere.
- Equipped with a cover that fits in the washer and dryer.
- Features two zippers: one for the cover and one to allow you to wash or adjust the amount of hulls as you wish. They also serve to protect your pillow from possible damage that children might do if there were not two zippers. Our pillows often become the favourite of your little ones!
HULLS AND NOT FOAM
Buckwheat hulls have many advantages. They are not only chemical-free but also anti-mite. They’re also ergonomic because we can adjust the amount of hulls in them according to our child's needs. They emit a pleasant soothing smell, which promotes relaxation. In addition, the shape of the hulls helps to regulate temperature, which provides additional comfort for the child.
WHY ORGANIC SHELLS ?
We chose organic shells for the reason that they were not sprayed with chemicals. Knowing that your children will spend several hours with their faces snuggled against their pillows, the option of organic hulls seemed obvious to us.
The pillows are suitable for children aged 18-24 months to about 5-6 years old depending on their needs. Since every child is different, your best indicator is the little one who will use it. If you are wondering if they need it, observe how they lie down. If they put a blanket or a teddy under their head when sleeping, it would be a good time to introduce a pillow to them to promote great sleep and optimal comfort.
THE SIZE OF THE PILLOW
Our pillows are 10 inches by 16 inches, but you shouldn't stop at its small size. Although we may find it small, it is perfectly adapted to the needs of children. We did several tests and it was THE size that caught the most attention of the toddlers around us. The wonderful thing about the pillow is that it quickly becomes one of our children's favourite. They then want to drag it around and, often, they become less reluctant to go to bed with their new pillow.
Many of you buy a Maovic child pillow for your needs and comfort because it offers a pleasant lumbar support when you are at the computer, on the road or simply in front of the television. It is also the perfect pillow to carry around when travelling and on the plane because its small size is optimal for transport without compromising comfort.
For the little ones who regularly have reflux, the Maovic pillow becomes a must. Simply slide it under the head and upper body to provide your child with an incline and reduce reflux, which is often a major source of discomfort.
Each fabric has been carefully chosen to follow the trends and tastes of our mini-clients ... and their parents! All pillows have two sides: one in patterned cotton and one in plain poly cotton in a matching colour.
Washing the cover is simple: it goes to the washer and dryer with all the rest of the bedding.
For hulls, this is where the questioning begins and some have heard that dirty hulls are good for composting. BUT, don't throw them away; just clean them! First, wash them with mild soap and then spread them on a cookie sheet and let them dry. It's as simple as that.
If you just want to "refresh" your hulls, you can place them in the sun! They heat and disinfect themselves.
You can slip a waterproof cover between the pillow and the coloured cover to make your life easier if any damage occurs.
