Peek-A-Boo Pillows® are unique, adorable pillows invented by Julia Faircloth (aka Julie) in 2002, owner of Purple Cow Creations in Newberg, Oregon. The idea of a pillow with a door covering a cavity all started with a dream by Julia. While working on an order of typical pillows she became inspired about the idea of a pillow that had something hiding inside. After a night of dreaming how to construct the pillow, the next day she made a prototype and really liked the concept. Next, Julia made up several more Peek-A-Boo Pillows® and sent them off to Bozeman, Montana to be sold in her sister’s store, The Artshoppe. These original pillows were an immediate hit. When Julia received her first reorder for the unique pillows she soon realized she was in the Peek-A-Boo Pillows® business. Soon thereafter Julia obtained a federal registered trademark on the name “Peek-A-Boo Pillows®” and applied for patents covering the invention. As the product was seen by more retailers and individuals the orders started coming in. The product is sold in the following ways: company website, retail stores and at holiday markets during Christmas season.


Julia is a grandmother to eight creative grandchildren whom are her unofficial little design engineers. Pictures of the kids are shown below and in the sidebar.
