Soft. Not as big as a full blanket. Lots of different animals to choose from.
They get misplaced easily. They will get pretty worn over time, but they are hard to let go. Official site is not secured (SSL cert issue).
We were looking for something for our first daughter to associate with night sleep and someone mentioned these lovies. They work great and we’ve used them with both girls. However, we only rotated three of them and they got pretty holey from all of the biting. We introduced a fourth, but it was so new that it was shunned. Henceforth, our daughter referred to them as “old” and “new” lovies.
Buy more than one and rotate them. Trust me. They come in two or three-packs, so there is no excuse. Don’t be the dad with a crying child who won’t go to sleep because you have no spares. Two is one and one is none.
Buy them from any large online retailer, since the official ecommerce site doesn’t appear to be secure (as of the date of this post).
Seamless switch to battery power. Portable for travel.
Magnet for kids to play with.
This one has been our favorite sound machine and have bought more than one. We had a power outage with our first baby while she slept at night and the sound machine automatically switched from AC to battery power, so that got us hooked. We have had Duracell batteries explode in one, so that was only usable when plugged in. Maybe the Eneloops would have fared better.
If the sound cuts out for no reason, it may not be broken. The kids may press the timer button when you aren’t looking. Just turn it off and back on.
If you keep batteries in it, check them periodically.
