Dear Sleepover Central Girls,

Whenever I have a sleepover with these two girls they always end up fighting. But if I don’t invite them to my sleepover or invite one and not the other, they get mad at me. What should I do?

We can see you are in a tough situation. Why don’t you try talking to your friends and let them know how you feel about them fighting. If thy are truly your friends, they will listen to you. You should try once more inviting them both to your sleepover, but this time try to keep them away from each other. Like make sure they are not sleeping next to each other and that they are in different groups in games and activities. If that does not work be honest with them and tell them that you cannot continue to invite them to sleepovers if they keep fighting. If they ignore this and continue to fight then they are not being very good friends and do not deserve to be invited back!

I made a new friend at school and I invited her to a sleepover. But she never invited me over to her house after that. Did I do something wrong at the sleepover or does she just not want to be my friend?

Don’t worry if she has not invited you over yet. She may just be shy or her parents might not like her to have people over as much as yours do. There might be things that you don’t know going on at her house that she does not want you to see. Don’t worry that you did something wrong, why don’t you try inviting her over again, and maybe she will be more willing to invite you over once you get to know her some more.

Whenever I have a sleepover, my younger brother always bothers us. My parents don’t understand that I don’t want him bothering me and my friends. How can I get him to leave us alone?

Here is a good idea, you can sit your parents down and talk to them about this. Tell them what has been going on at sleepovers with your younger brother and tell them how you feel about it. They should understand. Although they may not tie him up in his room during all your sleepovers like you would want, they will probably talk to him and keep him busy with other activities while you are having your sleepover. Good luck.

Whenever I have a sleepover my mom always makes us go to bed by 10:00. When I go to sleepovers at my friends houses we always get to stay up till at least midnight. How can I get my mom to let us stay up later?

Tell your mom how you feel and why you think you should get to stay up later. Try and make a compromise with her. For example say you will get into your sleeping bags at 10 but maybe you can stay up watching a movie. If you act mature and suggest compromises when talking to your mom, she will probably agree.

Whenever I have my friend’s sleepover we always like to play with my stuff but then when they go home they leave my room and house a huge mess. Then I always get in trouble and my parents make me clean it up. What should I do?

The next time you are playing with your stuff during a sleepover, beg your friends to help you clean it up before they all go home. If you end up having to clean up the place after everyone goes, well, just think, wasn’t it worth it!

Snow Day For All

Here at The Pajama Company we got our wish and yes, Wednesday was a Snow Day.  Streets were quiet with the exception of snowplows.  Stores were closed, schools were closed, town hall and even the DMV closed early with snow falling fast and furious.  For us, a Snow Day reflects the feeling we get from pajamas everyday.  It’s about taking a deep breath and learning how to lounge.  It’s about putting the brakes on for a moment and enjoying that 2nd cup of coffee or the next chapter of the book you can’t put down or the latest gossip in US magazine.  Snow Days are February’s way of giving us all a day off, giving us all a much needed “Pajama Day.”   For kids, a Snow Day will be forever etched as a wonderful memory of childhood.  Nothing compares to the exhilaration of hearing the news that school has been canceled.  It’s a pure happiness.  It’s the gift of a day of freedom, a day to do what you love.  Pajamas and Snow Days just go together.  Check out our great collection of pajamas for men, women and kids to get you through this winter and tell us how you spent your much needed “Snow Day.”

Hope for a Snow Day

With winter snowstorms brewing across the nation and snow already piling up in the mid Atlantic and Midwest, it’s time to celebrate Snow Days!  How happy kids are to awake to news of a snow day.  Yes, stay in pajamas and chillax!  That amazing feeling to know that the day will be a day of lounging and fun.  All of us at The Pajama Company love, love, love snow days.  To everyone stranded we say….keep those pj’s on and settle in for a little bit of much missed lounging.  In pajamas, everything is just a little bit nicer, a little bit easier.  Homework…no problem.  Conference call…no problem.  We love life in pajamas.  It’s just better.

Create Family Fun with A Valentine’s Day “Grab Bag”

Today we are introducing our first ever sale of Valentine’s Day Grab Bags.  These specialty packages come with small gifts and instructions on how to share the holiday of love with the whole family.

Valentine's Day Grab Bag

Valentine's Day Grab Bag

“Valentine’s Day isn’t just about treating that one special person,” says The Pajama Company founder and president Ellie Badanes.  “At the Pajama Company we say you should share the holiday with all the people you love.”

The Grab Bags are modeled after Ellie’s family tradition and are designed to be shared through an activity for a family or group of friends.

“Each person takes a turn closing his or her eyes and picking something out of the grab bag,” says Ellie.  But there’s a catch: the picker then has to decide who else in the group should get that gift.

“It’s a great way to honor all the people you love and help everyone feel special this Valentine’s Day,” says Ellie.

The Pajama Company is offering three options of Grab Bags priced $50, $75 to $100.  Each come with a selection of books, chocolate and accessories all wrapped in a specialty Valentine’s Day pillowslip. Start with our bag and top it up with more goodies you know your friends and family will love.  Maybe a favorite magazine, candy bar, card game, starbucks, subway or itunes card.  Maybe a cd or dvd, maybe a yo yo.  Make your Grab Bag perfect just for you and your friends and let the Valentine’s Day fun begin.

Check out our Be My Valentine section which is jam packed with goodies perfect for your sweetie.

Perfect Pillowcases

The Pajama Company, a leading online sleepwear retailer, is pleased to announce it is now selling pillowcases from Snooze City Designs.  The colorful graphic pillowcase sets feature creative designs, photographed images, and fun phrases when the two cases are placed together.

Ellie Badanes, founder and owner of The Pajama Company, said the brand perfectly fits with the goal of her company: making lounging fun.

“At the Pajama Company we believe no part of your life should ever be dull, your bedroom included!  These pillowcases jazz up the most important room in your house, making it fun, unique and a little silly,” says Ellie.

Snooze City’s Michael Azria and Derek Mosher launched their line of “the world’s hippest pillowcases,” as they describe them, in 2007 “to take plain existing products, and to add a fun and modern element to them,” they said.  Since then, the pillowcases have been featured in Teen Vogue, People Magazine, Life & Style and Nylon.

“They make the perfect gift,” says Ellie.  “The aviator sunglass design would be a great fit for a fashionista, the rocker will love the ‘plugged in’ set of a guitar and amp, and the ‘pass out here’ cases would be a hit in any college dorm room.”

The Pajama Company is selling 15 designs for $28 per set.  Each set includes two standard size pillowcases made of a super-soft cotton and nylon blend, 210 thread count.

In addition to pillowcases, The Pajama Company offers a wide selection of sleepwear for men, women, and children.  All pajamas and accessories are available for sale at www.thepajamacompany.com.
