If there’s one thing that makes nighttime a little more relaxing and enjoyable for a small child, it’s having a good friend nearby. A favourite cuddly stuffed toy, a well-worn baby blanket…there are all kinds of nighttime companions that kids turn to when the lights go out. And for over twenty years, Cloud b has been making some of the most innovative and interactive nighttime friends for babies and big kids alike.
My oldest son had both a Twilight Sea Turtle and a Mimicking Monkey from Cloud b that he slept with for years. He loved the pattern of stars the turtle projected on his ceiling, but he was even more fond of the peaceful nighttime noises of his monkey, and especially loved it when I would record a little message for him to listen to as he settled down to sleep. Years later, the innovations from Cloud b continue to improve with new products including Storytime Huxley, Torsten the Giant Turtle and Charley the Chameleon.
Recently I received a Charley the Chameleon for myself so that I could see what it was like. The adorable chameleon is a cuddly character in shades of blue, green and purple. I loved his wide staring eyes and plush body, and I could see he would definitely make a cuddly bedtime friend all on his own.
But the real fun started after I pressed Charley’s foot! The chameleon glowed gently and cycled through a rainbow of colours from red to green to blue. And by pressing his foot more than once, I had the option of accompanying the glowing either with tropical tunes, jungle noises or silence. Knowing that children can have very different preferences when it comes to nighttime noise, I appreciated the versatility of Charley’s sounds.
Since the goal of Cloud b products is getting children to sleep, Charley also features an automatic shutoff after 45 minutes so that his batteries won’t get drained when little ones fall asleep listening to his soothing sounds. And for even more nighttime fun, Charley the Chameleon comes with his own bedtime story book too!
