      A friend has leant me this Tomy Lullaby Light Show after it proved a success with her child and now that her daughter has grown out of it she has given it to me. As a product it compliments the mobile that my daughter has and is quite an effective means of getting her off to sleep. This is a rather old one and there are plenty of others on the market, before she gave me this one I almost bought a Winnie the Poo one.

      It is a wind up toy to run the music and fully wound it runs for about five minutes however you need batteries for the light show. It plays the lullaby Rock a Bye Baby and it also projects a series of images across the cieling at the same time giving it a very relaxing feel, I know because after a long day looking after the little madam it can set me off as well with my eyes feeling heavy. It has an auto9matic shut down so when the music ends the light show will also stop around the same time.

      The music is very soft and the light is not too bright either to act as too much of a stimulant. It also appears to be quite a robust item as well given the number of years that it has been around between our two families and apparently she has leant it out previously before to other friends when they have had children.

      This has certainly ben a help for me and something I would recommend.

      I bought the 'lullaby light show' for my friend's daughter a few years ago. Her daughter loved it and when my daughter was born I asked if I could borrow it. My friend was quite happy to lend it to me, but her daughter, who by this time was 3, did not want to part with it. We managed to persuade her that we would give it back soon and I am so glad she agreed to us borrowing it. It attaches easily to a cot and I imagine could be attached to other furniture if required. When you wind it up the toy plays 'rock a bye baby' and lots of different shaped/coloured lights drift across the ceiling. My daughter loved this toy from a very early age. I would put it on just before I left the bedroom and she would gaze at it mesmorised until she fell asleep. If she woke in the night, all I had to do was to wind it up again and go back to bed. The soft music and lights would send her quickly back to sleep. When she got a bit older the batteries ran out for the third time (this happened fairly quickly, which is my only criticism of the toy) and the light show stopped working. The music kept going without batteries and she still enjoyed listening to this at bedtime. My friend now has this toy back (much to the delight of her oldest daughter) as she has another baby now. It has so far been used by three children and I can see it being passed backwards and forwards for a few more children (only one more in my case I hope) and then being given to other friends with babies. It is extremely durable. It cost us about £25 at the time of buying it, but I saw a similar version of this toy for around £17 in Toys R Us last week. I felt £25 was a bit steep, but considering the effect it had on my daughter and the amount it has been used, we have certainly got our value for money. As many parents will agree, anything that helps send a baby to sleep is worth trying. This is the only toy of this type we have tried and it worked like a
      dream (excuse the pun). I would thoroughly recommend this to other parents. I just wish there was something like this that would work with nearly 2 year olds!

        This is a great music box. I received a used one from a neighbor and the kids were facsinated with it. It did not turned very well I think something was spilled on it. You wind it up and the light automatically goes on and stays on as they music plays. the dome turns and causes the images of animal to move as they are projected on the ceiling. My mother purchased a new one for my twins at Christmas. I turn it on and put it on the floor at the foot of the crib and they lay there watching the lights dance on the ceiling. They love to carry around the old one that doesn't work quite right and are always bringing it over to us to wind up. The new one they do not play with the new one. I received a request on where to purchase this item. I will have to check with my mom. I am, however, an American and do not know of any places on the web to purchase the item. I beleive my mother bought it from Toys-R-Us I do not know if you have them over there or not.

          A Terrible, Terible design. I`m talking about the plain tomy mobile here the one with the farm animals and the moving sun. I was AMAZED at the inadiquecy of the design of this product. The aim of a cot mobile is to get a baby to sleep. Why then does this moble emit an EXTREMELY loud crunching sound every time you wind it up. This sound was SO loud that it startled my daughter every time she heard it. Also the tune only plays for 2-3 minutes not neary long enough especially as winding the mobile up again will wake the baby up. Comletely ridiculous product. I have nothing good to say about it.

          The Tomy Lullaby Light Show is a musical night light which projects a revolving display of characters onto the ceiling and walls whilst playing the Brahms lullaby. It is a free standing, wind up toy which is suitable from birth, at £12.79 it is quite cheap compared to other products of the same type. I bought this product whilst pregnant and my baby is now 4 weeks old, I find that the music is soothing but plays a little bit too loud to send my child to sleep. At such a young age I dont think that he can appreciate the revolving characters on the walls and ceiling, I think my partner and I probably enjoy it more. I use this product most for night time feeds and changes when I dont want to turn on the main light or lamp, as this wakes my son up so much that he will not go back to sleep. But the night light provides just enough light so that I can see what I am doing and amuses him, but allows him to go straight back to sleep. I find the movement of the top revolving quite noisy and jerky, and sometimes the light flickers on and off, but the batteries seem to last quite well. I probably would not recommend this to a friend, and if I were buying another, I would splash out on a more expencive one if it meant better quality.

            We first bought a Tomy lullaby light show when our first child was born to settle her down, before we purchased this great soothers for our baby child we suffered restless nights taking in turns trying to get our child back to sleep. The Tomy lullaby light show is like having a third person helping to settle the crying baby. The lullaby is like a half of a football the most pleasant melody sound you will possibly hear, when the lights are off in the baby’s room you can see pictures of animals going around and around on your ceiling. It will be operational for about five minutes before it unwinds it self, battery operated with three HP2. Your baby will not be able to see these images at this early age but when she gets older she will have the comfort of three different aids to help her get back to sleep, extra light from the lullaby, images that will amuse them, and sound that they can listen to

            Disadvantages

            I purchased the Tomy Lullaby light show for my first child when she was born. My earliest memory of using it was on the night when I brought her back from hospital. She was screaming and I didn’t know what to do to pacify her and my husband and I and our baby were lying on our backs on the bed staring at the ceiling and walls watching the characters walk around the room! I am not going to lie to you and tell you that it worked that night to calm my newborn because it certainly didn’t but I can honestly say that ever since it has been a part of her nighttime routine. The Lullaby night show is a stand-alone unit that you place on a flat surface, it does not attach to the cot in any way. The unit itself is covered in different figures, an elephant, a monkey, a rhinoceros, a zebra and many other shapes. You wind the unit up and a light comes on projecting the shapes onto the ceilings and surrounding wall, the unit revolves and the shapes move around the room at the same time playing the Brahms’ Lullaby. A fully wound unit will play for approximately 5 minutes. I have tried other Lullabies but I have found that many of them only play for a couple of minutes, which is not enough time to properly settle your baby. In fact about 18 months ago when the lullaby did become a little worse from wear (due to the fact it was 5 years old) I went out to the shop and purchased a couple of different lullabies but at the end of the day I wasn’t happy with them and I took them back and bought another Tomy night show. I have three children and all of them have listened to this lullaby as part of their bedtime routine. At the moment it is very musical in my house because at bedtime I have one playing in my youngest daughters room and the other in my older toddlers room! The only negative comment I can make about the unit is the fact that very young babies will not be able to see the characters on the ceiling as their eyes
            ight would not be mature enough, however, the music is very relaxing and that alone will often be enough to send them off to sleep at that very young age. The unit takes three HP2 batteries and occasionally the light bulb also has to be changed. You can find the unit in most nursery/toy shops.
