Debbie reviews the Soothe & Glow Seahorse

The Fisher-Price Soothe & Glow Seahorse, around £18, is a cuddly toy that plays soft music and lullabies when squeezed. It has a light in the tummy that gradually dims as your baby drops off to sleep. We asked Debbie Zagoria, 30, from Surrey, to test the seat with her daughter, Jessie, four months. This is what she thought:

The Soothe & Glow Seahorse has become one of our favourite bedtime toys. When you press the plastic tummy it lights up and gentle music and ocean sounds start. It plays a variety of songs for five minutes and then gently stops. It's helpful that you can stop the music early by pressing its tummy again.

The tunes are lovely and calming, and together with the glow from its tummy, it creates a relaxing bedtime environment. Jessie is generally a great sleeper, however, we can have quite a time getting her to sleep and sometimes nothing manages to soothe her. However, as she gets older I can see that this will definitely make more of a difference at bedtime.
