Sleep sound and light, Ollie from Gro

By Monday, August 7, 2017 69 No tags Permalink

Well known for their range of sleeping bags and muslin wraps, The Gro Company have brought us some really practical and useful products for babies and toddlers, such as the Gro Clock and Gro Egg as we recently reviewed.

Now the latest addition to the Gro range comes Ollie the Owl, a cuddly, plush sound and light toy designed to help soothe your baby to sleep.

A soft, portable toy, Ollie plays four soothing sounds, including the white noises Heartbeat, Rainfall, White noise static and classical music of Brahms Lullaby, designed to help your baby to drift off to sleep or to resettle to sleep.

Ollie also has a gentle glowing night light in his tummy, with three different levels of brightness ideal for day naps or nighttime sleeps.

Unique to many other sleep sound toys, Ollie the Owl contains a voice activated CrySensor to help resettle your little one when they stir or wake. The music or white noise sounds play for 20 minutes, and then automatically switches to standby mode for three hours. If your baby wakes during this period the built-in CrySensor will switch the sounds back on by itself to help resettle your baby.

The use of white noise can help to replicate the familiar sound and safe environment of the womb, drown out other household sounds which may disturb your baby and may help to calm restless or awake babies.

Ollie has a secure Velcro loop so you can hang it to the side of your baby’s cot, pram or in the car. You can also use it as a cuddly toy for older babies or toddlers.

All the paws act as clever hidden switches (safely away from baby’s wandering fingers or mouths) to turn on and off the white noise and music, and dim the light to three different levels, then switch it off as you need to.

My little one Marnie likes to cuddle Ollie to sleep, clicking on the light by herself or off again if she wants to. As the battery back is tucked safely away inside I am happy to let her sleep with him.

Ollie the Owl White Noise Toy Features:

1. Fitted with a voice activated CrySensor to help soothe baby back to sleep.

2. Four soothing sounds: heartbeat, rainfall, white noise static and Brahms lullaby.

3. Three volume settings.

4. A night light, with three light levels.

5. Suitable from birth.

6. Velcro fastening loop to easily attach to any cot, pram or car.

7. Sized for little cuddles and easily take out and about.

8. Battery operated – 4AA Batteries (not included).

Ideal for a Baby Shower or new baby gift, Ollie is a handy nursery toy that you can leave in your baby’s cot or take with you in the car or attach to the pram.

Ollie comes in grey with coloured hearts on his tummy, so is suitable for a baby boy or girl, matching any nursery decor.

    I would like the opportunity to win this beautiful little owl because not only are owls my obsession, this is my last pregnancy. My fourth and last. I got rid of all my baby stuff with my prior pregnancies because in my mind and heart I thought I would never be able to get pregnant again after being diagnosed 4 years with chronic Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. Starting from scratch, but happy with my little miracle. Fingers crossed I win. :) my Instagram name is _khalee_ty_ami_khal

    I expect two baby boys. Yes, twins. These are my first children and the biggest challenge. With Ollie the owl I imagine our start easier. As a mom, I will provide them a pleasant twilight to sleep with the light function and a calm atmosphere with the melodies. When the boys will sleep peacefully then I will be calm as well.
