We were sent a Lumiove Penguin from Pabobo to review after previously reviewing the Barbapapa. Rocket has taken ‘Pablo’ to bed with him every night since we received him back in July last year and even came on holiday with us!
The Lumilove Penguin, affectionately named ‘Pengy’ is essentially the same as the Barbapapa but with a delightful twist, it’s musical!!! It plays the special Pababo lullaby to your little one on a timer for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes is up and the music has finished the light stays on providing a soft glow of light all night thats comforting to your little person. The music is easily turned back on by holding the button on the base of the Penguin down for 2 second or simply turned of by a quick press of the same button.
Rocket knows that Pablo and Pengy are part of his night time routine now and will climb into bed and ask for us to turn on the lullaby. At first I was wear as to if he would like the music but he really does. It’s not loud, just soft enough to comfort baby and he even can turn the music back on himself in the night if he wakes up. In the morning when I get him from his room he goes and collects Pengy to go back on charge for the day, ready for up to 11 hours of use the next night.
The Lumilove Penguin will automatically light up when removed from its charging base and also if there is a power cut, so serves as a handy comforting light in that instance too. It is suitable from birth as it uses LEDs meaning the plastic never heats up and is perfectly safe against baby’s skin.
I’m incredibly thankful for this little guy as he has helped settle an otherwise stubborn 2 year old into a sleeping routine and I know if he wakes in the night he has a familiar little penguin next to him!
