Final Thoughts

A John Lewis pillow for £6? You’ll be hard-pressed to find anything cheaper.

Note:  February 2019 – no longer available.    Try the  little home at John Lewis Children’s Anti Allergy Single Duvet and Pillow Set – pricier but a better quality and a good buy


The Basics Junior Pillow has a 100% microfibre polyester cover and a 100% hollowfibre filling.  It’s not the perfect children’s pillow for quality as there’s little bother with the stitching and finish.  But TBH, I was impressed at what I got for just six quid, especially from John Lewis.   At this price it’s tempting to buy a couple in case of the dreaded night-time accidents or poorly tummies. This is a great value pillow and most kids I know aren’t fussed about needlework.

It’s nicer with a pillow protector.  John Lewis do an anti-allergy pillow protector here, which fits the Junior pillow, or a nice organic cotton pillowcase, here, in a few different colours which helps keep kids cooler at night.

But final thoughts on this one? Pillow sorted for the same price as a kids’ meal out.    Job done 🙂
