I've leveled my last three or four toons off wild pet battles. Granted, they were all in their 30s to start with (very old toons I hadn't played with in a while.) What I did was get a port to the vale and run to that little pool where No No is. You'll probably die a whole lot, but there's a repair near that area. Just take some bandages. Vale has all the ports so it's a nice place to be saved at regardless.
But, yeah, it's been very quick for me. Much quicker than quests. One pet battle from wild pets gives the same amount of EXP as one quest (comparable to your level at the time so it scales upwards.) The only thing to note is that your pets have to be around the same level so power leveling pets from 1-25 does not work at all. You get no EXP when you have a level one pet and two 25s. I take all my pets that are level 23 or so and put them into a group with two crows. And, naturally, you get more EXP if there is a difficulty bonus and I don't think this method works if you're using a team of all 25s. I think your pet needs to get EXP in order for you to, but I'm not certain.
This is how I get all my pets to level 25 after I take them around doing the dailies. You can also complete the fabled beast quests on one toon then have your lower level toon turn them in. I queue for LFGs to break things up a bit (and get gear.)
You can get the unmarked stones which sell for a decent amount. It's not a certain drop but all the ones I've gotten were from lower level alts finishing up their levels.
