Lullaby Light Cube Review & Giveaway


           Want to help your little one fall into a peaceful sleep? Worried about transitioning baby into his/her own room? Or maybe you have a toddler that is afraid of the dark and needs a nightlight? If any of the above applies to you, Lullaby Light Cube can help you out!
            The Lullaby Light Cube is a portable star projector and soother. It’s small and comes with a detached base that the cube rests in, so besides not taking up much room in travel bags, it won’t take up much space in the bedroom either! It’s not nearly as bulky as some of the musical soothers I’ve seen out there plus it’s battery powered so you don’t have to worry about cords hanging everywhere…Or finding an outlet, for that matter!
            The star projector comes in a variety of colors, including blue, green, and yellow. Lullaby Light Cube also plays music (Rock-a-bye Baby and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star) and heartbeats. Each song/sound has its own special star projection color. There is also a projection only mode that cycles through the different colors.

            The cube is also super easy to use. Instead of having buttons, knobs, etc., it has touch sensors. One is used to select which song/sound you want and the other is volume control. As I mentioned, there are 4 settings for the sound/star projection and 3 volume settings.

            So, what did I think of it? I love it! Currently, we have one of those soothers that plays music and has moving objects and a light in Myka’s crib. We have both been getting kind of burnt out on the music, so this was a nice change of pace. I’m not sure whether she has really noticed the star projections or not, but I’m sure she’ll enjoy them when she gets older. To be fair, we have still been keeping her night light on, making them kind of hard to see.
            My favorite thing about the Lullaby Light Cube is how long the music and lights stay on. That is one thing I don’t like about our current soother: the music only stays on for like 5 minutes. Sorry, but unless my daughter is REALLY tired, she’s not falling asleep in that amount of time. The cube’s music plays for 20 minutes! Now THAT’S a reasonable time frame for her to fall asleep! Even better, the star projection stays on for an extra 20 minutes AFTER the music has automatically turned off. Bonus!
            As I said, the music and projections automatically turn off after continuously playing for so long. I seriously love, love, love this because I hate having to walk through Myka’s room while she’s sleeping. Why? We have the stereotypically creaky hardwood floors where the harder you try to be quiet, the louder you seem to be. So the fact that I don’t have to worry about turning this off and potentially waking her up is fantastic!
Sorry you can't see them very well. They are a lot brighter in person, I promise!

            I was really surprised by how loud the music can get. I mean that in a good way, though. I’ve been placing the Lullaby Light Cube on the other side of the room from Myka’s crib, so I’ve put it on the highest volume setting to make sure she could hear it. I actually had to go in last night and turn it down because I could hear it all the way in the living room! Not that the music is annoying, but I have a really hard time listening to repetitive things and each song plays for 40 seconds then starts over again. But, Myka seems to like it and that’s all that matters. : )

Just an example of the music. I tried getting the projections too, but it's really hard to get it in the dark on a camera. 

            As I’m sure you can guess, we haven’t really used the heartbeat setting since Myka is almost 10 months old now. We had her sleep in our room, but didn’t let her sleep with us, the first few months after she was born, so this setting would be good for parents who do something similar with new babies. The cube would also come in handy if you are maybe trying to get a toddler to start sleeping without a nightlight since the star projection doesn’t turn off for 40 minutes. Older kids might like just the projection setting too so they can look at the stars and moon. These are also great for taking to grandparents’ houses for overnight visits. While the Lullaby Light Cube is ideal for babies and toddlers, I can see it getting use for years after that stage.

  5. I'd pick pink for my little girl. I actually really need to get her a night light. She's currently borrowing her big brothers' so she doesn't have to sleep with the ceiling light on all night. She's never needed a light until about a week ago.
