“ Brand: Fisher Price „
I ordered the Fisher Price 'Go N Glow Turtle through Ebay a few weeks ago as I have slowly started to collect items ready for the arrival of our first child early next year. I wanted to get a nice simply nightlight and my first port of call was Ebay. I won the 'Go N Glow' with a bid if £6.78 (New) which as it regularly retails at around £12 it was a bargain.
The turtle is a portable nightlight that also plays music such as lullaby's and childrens songs such as Twinkle Twinkle. It is a colourful design and will clip onto the sides of cots or sit on dressers etc. To work the item you simply press the turtle shell once to have just the light which stays on for about 5 minutes, or press the shell twice to have light and sound. You can also press again to swap between songs if you wish.
Light wise the nightlight is not too bright so just what you want out of a nightlight for your little one but sound wise it's a bit of a let down. It only has two volume settings and there isn't a great deal of difference between the two and they seem far too loud, and the songs keep playing for about 15 minutes, which I feel is too long. I would have preferred the light setting to have lasted longer and the music to have switched off sooner.
The item itself though is sturdy, as you would expect from 'Fisher Price' and looks long lasting. It is suitable for ages birth to 24 months and takes 3 AA batteries. It is colourful but not garish and our little niece played with it for ages when visiting hitting the turtle shell on and off so it really is child friendly as well as not too irritating for us adults.
I will say that despite its good points I probably will only really use it as a nightlight and not use the music feature as it does seem far too loud for a newborn but for the price I paid I can't really complain.
