Molly-May has always been my co-sleeping baby and after a rather long 2 years of cuddles we decided it was time to move her into her own bed and room which was coincidentally just around the time when we moved into our new rented house so after decorating her room she moved into it and loved her own little space. But with holidays and visit to my parents in Germany where we have to share beds again its always a little bit of a struggle for her to go to bed all by herself when we are back home again so i was eager to try out if Bing and Owly could be of any assistant to us after we just arrived back from our family holiday!
Bing is dressed in his blue hoppity voosh pyjamas, ready for a bedtime story and a cuddle. If you press Owly down to see colourful lights slowly fade in and out, creating a soothing nighttime glow. You can choose from rainbow lights or soothing soft orange. And it also plays soothing music. The Nightlight features a 15-minute automatic shut-off which is a perfect time
for your little one to fall asleep!
Here is what we thought about the Bing & Owly Nightlight:
I was trying and failing miserably to capture the different colour changes when the night light is on it basically goes from a light soft yellow to a orange and then onto a red colour.
We have been using Owly in just the Light&Sound mode because Molly-May loves to hear the “Bing Bong” song for bedtime (yes, that is from another show entirely but she decide to name it that).
The 15 minutes of changing lights and soothing music is just the right amount of time for me to sit with her whilst she is drifting off to sleep and we have a little agreement when the music stops and she is still awake Mummy is leaving the bedroom but she can have another round. She is pretty pleased with that although 50% of the time she will be snoozing away before the music stops anyway! At first i thought the music was rather on the loud side for a lullaby but because her brother might be still up and going up or down the stairs or Daddy is preparing to head out for his Night shift i quite like it that way now so the outside sounds are muffled thanks to the music coming from Owly.
And we also have Owly a little bit further away from her bed so it isn’t right near her ear anyway.
But i have to state that towards the end of the 15minutes the music does go quieter!
The nightlight is sturdy and turning it on is simple with a little push down the Owly’s head which is easy enough for little hands to do themselves. I think its a fantastic nightlight & cuddly toy set and i can see Molly-May loving it for a long time to come! The only thing i would improve is a level button for the music but other then that it would make a great present for any little Big Fan!
