Lullabrites™ Plush Unicorn Lights Up Plays Bedtime Music
My Daughter's New Best Friend!
My four year old daughter loves loves LOVES her Lullabrites unicorn. I took him out of the packaging (it's zip tied in, so you will need a knife or scissors) and gently tucked him into bed with her one night because I knew that she would never get to sleep if I gave it to her before bedtime. When she woke up, she was instantly smitten. For about the first five minutes straight we heard nothing but, "I love the baby unicorn. He's sooooo cute" over and over and over. To be honest, I might have bypassed this toy if I saw it in a store because our kids already have a lot of stuffed toys. The majority of them keep our kids' attention for about two days, but it's been two weeks, and our daughter still carries this little unicorn around with her everywhere. She loves to sing along with the songs it plays, and it has quickly become one of her new favorite "friends".
Normally, I might also avoid buying stuffed animals that are white. The white does make the colored lights look nice and bright, but I'm still wary of buying electronic toys that can't easily be washed. The softness of this toy is wonderful, though. Super cuddly! The Lulabrites Unicorn plays a variety of stylized songs, including, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and, "Hush Little Baby". It also has a setting that turns on just the lights without any music.
At first, I thought this toy might be a little baby-ish for my six year old and even a bit so for my four year old because I've seen so many stuffed toys with songs and lights for infants. Now that we have it, I feel confident that the ideal age group for the Lullabrites is about 3-5, though I think we're going to have to get our six year old one too now. There are a couple of reasons why I think this toy is more appropriate for preschoolers than infants or young toddlers: 1) The sound is a tad bit too loud for babies and 2) the button to activate the toy is very small. Most one and two year olds would not have the fine motor coordination to be able to find and push the tiny "on" button, which is sewn into the leg of the unicorn. It took my four year old a few minutes to figure out how to turn it on. Once she finds it, she has no problem activating it now.
I have to say, I like this toy much more than I expected, and my daughter absolutely loves it, which is what really makes it especially worthwhile. I would definitely recommend this toy for any aspiring young prince or princess.Kmom22
Really cute and cuddly
My 2 year old loves this little cutie, I have to say I really like this first because of that fact you don't have to have the music on to have the light. You can play both or just one. Also the eyes are sewn in not buttons or anything that can be pulled off.Dee
Soft and great to travel with
It's a sweet plush toy. It is very soft and the button to control the lights and music is on its arm. My child had a hard time finding the button once I took the tag off, so I had to show her a few times, but after that she figured it out. I like that you can use the button to cycle through music and lights, just lights, or turn it off so you don't have to wait for it to finish playing or lighting up for it to turn itself off. It is a good size for traveling with, so it makes a nice travel buddy for trips to visit family and can help create a sense of normalcy in the bedtime routine while away from home.BB
