For months and months Erin was crazy about one only television show and we would watch next to nothing else with her. Just recently though, Erin has developed a love for In The Night Garden (ITNG) and it is now part of her bedtime routine. With the clocks changing recently, we were sent the Twinkling Lullaby Iggplepiggle and it couldn’t have come at a better time!
When you get any kind of toy that includes a battery pack you don’t expect them to feel quite as soft and cuddle as they should. That’s not the case at all with Twinkling Lullaby Iggplepiggle. He’s super soft and you can barely feel the battery pack in the back of him at all!
Igglepiggle comes with his iconic red blanket and he’s also holding a lovely, golden star. This Igglepiggle plays 4 lullabies that you’ll recognise from ITNG and when you press his left hand, the music plays and the star glows!
The first day that Erin used Igglepiggle she was supposed to having a nap but she was climbing around in her bed like a lunatic. I went upstairs armed with a nappy (just in case) and Igglepiggle. While Erin was excited to see him, she firstly gave him a big hug and was mesmerised by the glowing star.
Erin immediately recognised the music and said ‘Garden’ over and over again. Instead of playing like I thought she might, Erin laid down with Igglepiggle and gave him a cuddle. I left Erin in bed with him and fully expected her to get back up and play again.
In only 10 minutes or so, Erin was fast asleep. The lullabies don’t play for this long but they seemed to play for long enough to help Erin get off to sleep. I couldn’t quite believe it to be honest. Nothing like this has ever worked on helping her to get to sleep.
Erin seems to really love her Twinkling Lullaby Iggplepiggle. Now, I don’t know how long it will help with getting her to sleep as I’m sure over time, she will just want to play with Igglepiggle and if that happens, we’ll just have to change his purpose.
Twinkling Lullaby Igglepiggle comes from Golden Bear Toys and costs £29.99.
