Rosie was very intrigued by the box sat on our sofa when she came back from Nursery one Wednesday lunch time. Even more so when I told her that what was inside was for her to try out!
Inside was a toy I'd never heard about or seen before a Cloud-B Twinkling Firefly Frog that Cloud-B kindly sent us to test out and review 🙂
We quickly opened up the box (which had travelled all the way from Canada!) and took a peek at what or rather who was inside, hey Froggy.
Cloud-B Twinkling Firefly Frog First impressions
Rosie was very happy with the froggy that she found inside the box and instantly started doing impressions of the Cloud-B Twinkling Firefly Frog! Personally I was really impressed by how big he is and when I got him out of his box (happy to report that all the packaging is recyclable) and very nice and soft. Although he is meant for younger 0+ children, I'm sure kids of any age would love this.
Cloud-B Twinkling Firefly Frog Functions
The Cloud-B Twinkling Firefly Frog is super easy to operate, with two buttons, one in each hand or are they feet on a frog? Anyway in each one is a little button, the right hand one operates the volume and the left switches froggy on and cycles through the three modes, which are.
- Rain with crickets
- Lullaby Melody
- Just Twinkling Lights (Rosie's Favourite)
I really like the rain with crickets noise, but after a few weeks of going to sleep with Froggy every night Rosie has gone back to the music she is used too, she tried the Lullaby Melody for a week or so but I think for her (as a 2.5 year old) it's a bit repetitive and I think as it goes on for 30 min+ she just found it was keeping her awake.
She loves, I mean LOVES having the Twinkling lights on though, every night without fail she has them on.
The Cloud-B Twinkling Firefly Frog comes with batteries included so your child can play with him/her straight away, that's always a major bonus with toys, big tick Cloud-B!
The only suggestion I would have for Cloud-B to make this toy better would be to have a little more variation in the music and or a longer loop as unfortunately it soon gets mildly irritating. For young babies though I can't seen them minding the current tune at all.
The automatic switch off is great as you know the batteries will last more than week! Speaking of which the batteries are very easy to access for an adult and not so much for a child, which is good.
The light up tummy is definitely the part Rosie likes the best and it gives a really nice light to fall asleep to and the lights on the Cloud-B Twinkling Firefly Frog are perfect, really soothing.
I would totally recommend the Cloud-B Twinkling Firefly Frog to any parent, it's really well made and I can see Rosie liking it for a good few more years. At the moment he generally has pride of place at the bottom of her bed!
