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.
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.
