This was the overall size I expected for a toddler, but was much puffier than I anticipated. He doesn't consistently sleep on it, but does often start off on it. However, he loves it and loves having his own pillow. I got it as we noticed he was starting to lay on his stuffies and his books, so we thought he may like something extra. I like that the pillow "case" is zippered so there are no loose sheets getting in the way. Also, the quality is definitely good with sustainable fibres and fill. I decided on this over a pillow at Bed Bath and Beyond because those (with no mention of eco-friendly ingredients) were either $24.99 or $32.99 with no cover. So, this seemed like a good deal, all things considered.
