Advantages: colourful, soothing
Disadvantages: hard, loud
When my daughter was born, she slept in a moses basket by our bed. When we moved her into her cot, she had her favourite teddy for company, but we wanted something that would play a lullaby for her.
We came across this Winnie the Pooh teddy soother. At first I was disappointed that it didn't come in pink, there was little choice or variety. However it is available at most toy shops, and we bought it in 2009 for approx £29.99. I believe it still retails at a similar price now, although sometimes cheaper when on offer.
Whilst she was in her Moses basket, we placed this on our bed so that she could still hear it and see the colours. When she went into her cot, we put it in the cot with her. The age suitability is birth onwards. The unit requires 3x AA batteries which are not supplied. They are securely fitted into the plastic battery pack inside the pillow. The pillow is secured with velcro, but even if baby manages to open the velcro, the battery pack is screwed shut and has to be unscrewed to open, so there is no danger of curious fingers causing trouble!
Winnie the Pooh wears a blue outfit and is attached to a white 'pillow'. The pillow is actually a thin pillowcase covering the battery/sound pack. It is not soft at all, nothing like an actual pillow. It is rock hard, and if thrown about, it would hurt! The pillow has some cloud designs on. It has a colour changing feature, so when switched on, the pillow lights up in a random order of colours which glow softly.
There is a musical tune that plays, quite loudly, but soothes baby to sleep. There are also various sounds such as Winne the Pooh yawning, and saying "I'm so sleepy" and "night night". The voice is gentle, as you'd imagine a teddy bear to talk. The music is a gentle lullaby but is actually quite loud! There is a 'nature' mode which plays nature sounds instead of the lullaby, such as birds tweeting. There are 10 lullabies which are pretty similar. You can also set it to have only the coloured lights and no sounds.
A handy feature is the purple parental control - a small handheld unit with a carry handle, that has buttons on to change the mode and switch the unit on or off. This requires 3x AA batteries (not supplied). We found this very handy as it means you can control the unit without disturbing baby or waking baby up.
The unit also has a timer which you can set via a switch inside the pillow on the battery pack. It can be set to stay on for 5, 15 or 30 minutes. This is handy as it means you don't need to disturb baby to turn it off, and you can decide how long it needs to be on for, rather than having to keep turning it on or off.
My daughter loved this, she loved the teddy and was mesmorised by the lights. The lullabies are soothing and ideal for small babies.
The only downsides to this product is the sound - it is very loud and can't be turned down to a quiet setting. Also, the 'pillow' which houses the battery pack is very hard plastic, there is absolutely no padding, so it is not comfortable to have near baby in the cot, nor could it be cuddled. However, you can still put it at the other end of the cot, or like we did, on a nearby table etc.
All in all, an excellent soothing toy. Well worth the money.
