Twilight Sea Turtle Review by Kendra Fletcher

Cloud B
2255 Jefferson Street
Torrance, CA 90501

Sometimes toddlers and preschoolers need a little reassurance that nighttime and the dark aren't scary. My children, like a lot of yours, attached themselves to a blanket or a stuffed animal and loved going to sleep knowing they'd feel comfortable and safe. Cloud B is a company with the comfort of small children in mind. They've thoughtfully considered the emotional needs of little ones and have created their products with the intent of bringing tranquility to your nighttime so that the whole family can have a good night's sleep.

One such delightful product in the Cloud B line is the Twilight Sea Turtle. The turtle's beautiful shell lights up in three soothing colors while also highlighting five endangered sea animals: the Blue Whale, the California Sea Otter, the Knysna Seahorse, the Leatherback Turtle, and the Vaquita Dolphin.

The turtle is fun for my two-year-old to look at and play with, for sure, but what he really loves is the its ability to project stars and even the moon on the ceiling. Stars appear in either blue, green, or a combination of both for a double effect. "Look, Mommy! Two moons!" He asks to have the Twilight Sea Turtle turned on every night and even at naptimes when the room isn't dark enough. Twilight Sea Turtle has auto shut-off, meaning I don't have to sneak in and turn it off; it does so automatically after 45 minutes.

The Twilight Sea Turtle comes with a Twilight Storybook, a short story that teaches children about endangered sea animals. There's also a helpful Star Guide and an adoption certificate. Three AAA batteries are included.
