As a Babyologist for Babys R Us, Lucas received a Fisher-price Hippo Cuddle Projection Soother to review. The hippo retails at £19.99.

The hippo is an adorable night light with stars, a music mode and a sounds of nature mode. Lucas loves it and especially likes to press the buttons himself, turning the light on and off.

The star light only stays on for approximately 5 minutes which isn’t long enough for Lucas to settle and fall to sleep, when the stars go off, it unsettles Lucas and prolongs the bedtime routine.

The music and nature sounds last approximately 30 minutes. The music and nature sounds are both soothing but I would have liked the music to either be quieter or the hippo to have a volume button as it is too loud for using during a night feed.

As a sleep aid I wouldn’t recommend it but if you buy it as a toy, I would definitely recommend it. Lucas is mesmerised by the stars on the ceiling, really enjoys using the buttons and snuggles up to the hippo’s face x

    A great toy but like you commented I think this would prolong my son going to bed

    I think I would find this distracting if my mummy had to go and switch the night light back on after 5 minutes too! It needs to be at least 20 mins for me. I use a CloudB night light and it doesn’t have any music but still projects stars on the ceiling for ages! Nice, honest review x

    What an honest review. I appreciate it when people comment on the negative aspects too. I like the idea of it as a toy but not as a sleep aid.

    Interesting idea that it is better as a toy than a sleep aid, as an adult I think I would find it relaxing ha x

    I loved the projectors for the ceiling when mine were small

    We have something like this and it’s been a lifesaver. It’s really helped my daughter become less scared in the dark

    This sounds like a great toy, but it’s a shame that it doesn’t have a volume button so it could be used for the night feed for example. It does look really cute though!

    A great toy but I agree that the stars should stay on longer

    This is so cute – but I agree with the points you raise about it as a sleeping aid. Lovely to soothe baby in the day though. Kaz x
