A few years ago, there was the Remote Control Pillow; a small throw pillow that featured a little pocket to store your remote(s). Clever, indeed. Now there’s a plush pillow that doubles as a universal remote control, and what better name to call it than the Pillow Remote Control.
Pillow Remote Control
The Pillow Remote Control has databases containing codes for over 500 remote control devices.
Its easy-to-click fabric buttons make changing channels a breeze.
Power-saving auto shutoff feature shuts off remote functions after 60 seconds of inactivity.
Remote has a wide-range transmitter with infrared LED built in.
A fun way to watch TV or home theater, and a real conversation-starter.
Uses 2 AAA batteries (not included).
The biggest problem with keeping track of remotes is that they are too small. If all your remotes could be fused into one squishy, pillowy remote, the problem is solved. Man, why didn’t I think of that?
Not only is the pillow easy to locate, but it comes in a neutral brown to complement a variety of trendy domestic color schemes. The remote characters are also clearly visible and displayed in large print. Therefore, you’re not squinting to read the buttons, and you’re not struggling to make out the characters that have rubbed off from too much manhandling.
The Pillow Remote still requires 2 AAA batteries, but you’ll be saving on battery juice because it features a power-saving automatic shutoff function that kicks in after one minute of inactivity. That means the pillow can go back to pillow-mode, you can resume couch potato position and enjoy the show. Press the ‘Activate’ button to reawaken the remote as needed.
Brookstone has the Pillow Remote Control, priced at $39.99.

Brookstone ships to Canada but you have to pay duty when it arrives. Any Canadian places that sells the remit pillow ( brown plush one)??
