We got this before my daughter was born in 2014 and used it straight away with her each night to try and help her sleep.
There is a button to cycle through 3 songs and two sounds, a button for 3 volumes and one for 4 light settings - red, blue, green or cycle all colours.
The lights are very bright with fresh batteries and project stars and planets all over the room, and the sounds are pretty loud even on the lowest setting. You can set it to go for 15, 30 or 45 minutes. The batteries do drain fast though and the lights dim first and the music plays slower and more distorted.
I used to sometimes wake at night to catch my daughter looking at the ceiling and cooing at the lights, and she started associating bedtime with a certain tune after about 3 months so it really did work for her. In fact, she liked it so much I had to take it away when she was almost 3, because if she still wasn't asleep after one cycle, she'd shout me awake demanding I put the exact same song on!
It's also a nice toy for babies to play with as it does have fabric wings and most of the body is soft, and great for sensory too. I do wish it had a cry sensor or went for an hour but for the price it is decent. Currently using it with my 3 month old son and he seems to have picked his favourite sound already.
I got this to see if it would settle my boy in his cot before bed and it has very well but the music is still rather loud even when I have it on the low setting, it is very easy to use and I love the colours you can choose form or you can have it going in a continued loop and the music you have a few different options to choose from, you can also change the time to suit from 15 min up to half an hour
Ok I seen reviews on these kind of products. And I saw this at a reduced price. Which tbh I am glad it was reduced. I certainly wouldn’t have kept at the RRP.
It’s the most boring product I have ever bought.
Don’t get me wrong the music is nice. Normal lullaby style music. However the sounds not too mmmm nice. And the lights yes, they may change colour but you have to press the button to do this. I thought maybe they would change by them selves.
Would I buy one similar to it again no.
Thumbs down from us.
