    My friend bought one for my daughter because her granddaughter loved hers. So I bought for a gift because my grandson loves his

    Excelente para los más pequeños. El sonido e iluminación los relaja

    I rarely write reviews. But I just made a timely escape from the room of a sleeping 3 year old twins and it was with the help of this turtle. I debated between the tranquil turtle and the cheaper version with the static star lights. I am so glad I went for this one. It’s a combination of the moving lights and the sound that help keep the kids calm. We have a very tough sleeper and this has greatly helped. It’s not magic— but with the right conditions in place it helps my little one settle down at night and for naps.

  4. Tony Saccullo

    I ordered this for my 2 ½ year old grandson and he loves it. He has named it and uses ti whenever he takes a nap or goes to the bed at night. He shows me how it works whenever I go visit. My son and daughter-in-law also like it and have asked for another one for the new baby which is due in a few weeks.

  5. Shannon

    I think I like it more than my child.. lol, it’s very soft and soothing we don’t use it for sleep but we turn out the lights and have underwater adventures.

  6. ShepherdMom

    This is my second one of these that I have bought. The first one was a frog and I bought it from Babies R Us. It got dropped a few times and the spinning light part stopped working but the music played. I would recommend buying a warranty with this in case that happens again. The turtle one, which we bought through Amazon, is working just fine. We have not really dropped it which is probably helped haha my son has been using this from the time he was born until now and he is almost one. He loves the soothing lullaby and staring at the wave-like lights on the ceiling as they move really helps keep him occupied as he falls asleep. I haven’t found another thing that moves like this does and I absolutely love this.

    First of all, I wasn’t expecting that a child’s nightlight would be so fantastic. The underwater effect is so soothing, not too harsh and rather realistic. Even the sounds, both the ocean waves and the relaxing tunes are done well. Both kids love it, 4 month is mezmerized, 2.5 year old is soothed into sleepytime, and I admit, my husband and I have each shut the kids door and escaped for a moment of ‘zen’. This thing is great. We’ve already bought 2 for friends’ kids.The only downer is how fast it drained the batteries. In all fairness the batteries I speak of are the ones that are included for free with the toy, and we all can agree that usually included batteries are never quality. So I have yet to comment on how long our store bought ones will last.Overall a really great buy!

    My daughter (13 months) slept in her own bed for the very first time with the help of this little miracle worker. Something about it just relaxes her enough that she gives in and falls asleep on her own. I was skeptical for sure because she has been in my bed feeding two to three times a night. First night, and I woke her up to feed. Definitely worth the money so far!!!

  9. Juanita Miller

    We had one of these for my first child when he was a baby, now my 6,4,2 all have one. They absolutely love the turtles, the ocean waves and soft tranquil lights & sounds.

  10. Angelo Pulgiano

    My 1 year old loves turning this on. It is part of his bedtime routine. He turns it on and goes right to sleep. Peaceful and beautiful.

  11. Binerfamily

    I first discovered this when I was watching my nieces and realized I needed one in my life ASAPso soothingI do the moving waves and the musicputs me to sleep in minutes

  12. KJ

    I have one of these for each of our kids and have given it to a number of friends as well. Such a soothing addition to a nursery or bedroom. I sleep with it in bed with my son and I and the soft light and gentle sounds are perfect for middle of the night feedings or wake ups.

  13. Anya T. Kayatmo

    I wish I got this instead of the crib mobile! It’s the coolest thing to see ripples of water dance across the walls. The only thing I wish it had was a plug-in option so we could keep it on all night – like a night light. Other than that, it’s a baby product I would recommend to all parents!

  14. Kristen

    We love our tranquil turtle! We had one for 4 years, unfortunately it was kicked off the bottom of the bed one too many times while our child was sleeping. When it finally gave out we had to order another one! Our son still loves to use it to fall asleep. We’re hoping he will share it with his new baby sister when she comes!

  15. Rachel Denise Falk

    I’d give it 10 stars if I could. Used it the first night we tried putting our 2 month old in his crib. Read that the 23 minute auto shut off was a downside of this product. Not sure where they came up with this number but our son lied there awake, mesmerized, and at 23 minutes when it shut off he fell asleep immediately and woke up 6 hours later.his longest stretch yet. Next night 7 hrs next night 8 hours. As far as I’m concerned this thing is the best ones I have spent on any baby item. All hail the tranquil turtle.

    We love this turtle as does our baby but it dies all the time. Took to buying rechargeable batteries for how many times we have to change them. Still disappointed in the turtles life but when he works. Wow, just wow. Lights up the room with waves and different melodies I feel like I’m at a spa. Puts mommy and baby to sleep. Can’t use just music though mist have light on for music to play so that’s a small con

  17. I.B.P.

    The turtle is lovely and very relaxing – the parents might dose off before the children!My 10-month old was at first excited to see the light and to hear the sound, but after a couple of evenings she began associating it with sleep. Now when I turn it off, she relaxes. Both the melody and the hush of the waves are very pleasant.It’s possible to put the light without the sound, but not the other way around. My baby sometimes turns the turtle on its back (which blocks the light) just before letting herself drift off to sleep…

  18. Dhaverland1

    We got one for camping. He was 9 months even the adults liked the calming effect from watching this. It lasted 4 years before we had to replace. Will buy again.

  19. Meggi1123

    I wasn’t sure what my son would think of this, but we both love it! The turtle is a good size and it truly is relaxing! My 13 month old was excited about it the first couple nights and kept pointing and “ohhing” and “ahhing” over the waves. Now, he just lays backs and relaxes, enamored with the waves gliding over the walls and ceiliing. We got this over the other cloub B turtles because this has the wave sounds and the lullaby (his fav). I think it was definitely worth the extra in the price. Naps are easier with this too!

    LIGHTS UP AT NIGHT AND SOOTHING MUSIC. PUTS BABY TO SLEEP & TO BE HONEST HELPS PUT MOMMY TO SLEEP AS WELL. =)

  21. Lee

    Grandchildren love it.

  22. Reader, Tx

    My grand is used to this at bedtime at home. Needed one at my house so we didn’t have to tote it back and forth for sleep overs. She loves it. Seems like a lot of money for what it is but – it’s for grandbaby so ……. 🙂

  23. Cymbidium

    Five month old twins are in trance of calm. Love this turtle. We may need two

  24. Lynnamint

    My husband keeps stealing this out of my son’s nursery and my 6 year old is asking for one for Christmas. It’s quite popular in our house.Very soothing to look at and very soothing to listen to (ocean sounds and very peaceful, not at all annoying music).We had the starry version of this turtle and this is a big improvement. Wish the other one moved as this one does.

  25. ks

    This is the sweetest little turtle. Purchased it for my nephew’s 2nd birthday as a gift. It will serve as a night light as well as provide soothing sounds and wave patterns. The batteries that came with it were not working, but once we replaced those, it was working just fine. I think we’ll be happy with this.

  26. Valerie

    Beautiful baby loves it so much

  27. Pamela O

    Alright, so the price seems a bit much for some stuffed animal right? It’s worth every penny! The lights, the waves, the music, all of it, just a wonderful and cute and very practical night sleep light for any child’s/baby room. It’s light enough and soft enough to put into a toddler bed or even baby’s crib to sleep with. It’s strong enough in sound and light to place next to a childs bed (like a side table) as well.I agree with other reviewers on the time this item stays on. 23-25 minutes and the whole thing turns off. It would be nice if you could set the item for varied set of times and up too several hours. it would be even more helpful if it came with an adapter to plug into the wall instead of just batteries. But… for all the wonderful things it does and how absolutely adorable it is, I’m more than happy with it and would highly recommend this item to parents and grandparents alike.Pamela OCitrus Heights Ca

    My little one loves the motion waves and the sounds of the ocean but I have to say, I use this for myself as well. This thing is really bright too, so make sure to turn the brightness all the way down and then gradually increase to your liking. The maximum light act as a nightlight for when he is sleeping.I was hesitant on this buy because of some of the reviews but I’m glad I went through with the purchase. It works for me and my little one.

  29. Helen

    I bought the tranquil turtle for my stepdaughter, 6, who refuses to sleep in her bed and always wants to sleep with my husband and me. It was a very tough struggle. She and I found the tranquil turtle and she loved it because it looked “cool.” When it arrived, it was all she could talk about and she has not begged to sleep with us since!!! This product is amazing and she sleeps soundly through the night in her OWN bed. I would suggest this product to everyone of all ages. It has even put me to sleep and time it two. TWO THUMBS UP!

  30. Jose Rivera

    We immediately fell in love with this guy once it arrived but better yet, the song it plays truly soothes the baby!We were playing the song for the last 5 weeks of the pregnancy, right by the belly, and on his first day bag during one of his crying spells, we played the song. He immediately quieted and tilted his head toward the turtle – amazing.

  31. Landra Liebling

    Adorable

  32. Heather D

    This is so unbelievable cute and cool. My son is autistic and LOVES water. We are using this as a get to sleep tool and he loves to watch the “water” on the ceiling and hear the peaceful sound of the ocean. Sometimes we also play the music. It is quite bright, so I would place it higher than your child’s eye level when they are going to sleep or it could be distracting. I was afraid it was pricey for what it is, but after I fired it up, I loved it. It may become my “go to” baby shower gift from this point forward.

  33. Greta Nelson

    My nephew got a tranquil turtle, and when he came to visit I first heard of this product. I have had issues falling asleep for the last 2 years, and this turtle is one of the easiest ways for me to calm down and fall asleep. I bought this turtle at the same time as a noise machine with ocean waves on it-and after trying both I prefer the tranquil turtle when it comes to sleep. I highly recommend this for anyone with sleep problems or anxiety issues. It is well worth the price.

    My daughter is 20 months old. This arrived while she was napping. I snuck into her room and put it on her bed. When she woke up she was so excited! She absolutely loves it!

  36. Jules

    Oh my word this thing is FANTASTIC! I want one for my room! I got it for my twin kiddos in the bunk beds who complain they cant get to sleep. Not a word since we got this. It really looks like your underwater, and the music is lovely and soothing. So much better in person than any picture can portray! Just get it! You wont be disappointed!

  37. K.P.

    I love the water design that is projected and the soothing ocean sounds. It’s possible I like this more than baby but he’s only 3 weeks and I don’t think he’s noticed the projection yet. The ocean sounds lull us both into a peaceful sleep every night!

  38. JL

    I purchased the beautiful blue, soft turtle. the shell is the only hard part. it comes with volume, sound and light movement options. the volume can go as low as a soft background music or as loud as regular music. the sounds are ocean sounds or ocean sounds with music. my 4 yr old son likes the option with the music. the light display looks like water and fills the whole room. it can stay still or gently rock back and forth like the movement of the waves. its quite a beautiful turtle. it was ready for use straight out of the package. i highly recommend for new parents or parents of children who have a hard time sleeping alone/waking up at night. my son can turn it on by himself if he wakes up and it doesn’t wake me or my husband from across the hall. its very peaceful music that last about 30 minutes. batteries are easy to change. you will need a screwdriver.

  39. Nelly S

    The media could not be loaded.

     For $46 dollars, you can’t beat it. I looked all over the place for a device like this, but everything was close to or over $100. The light and sound that this soft little turtle delivers is fantastic. My son’s due date is August 20th, so he hasn’t gotten to enjoy it yet – but I’m sure he will love it. I posted this on Facebook today, and many people commented that they wanted one too (and they are adults). When my son graduates from his bassinet into his crib in his nursery, he will love going to sleep with this. It automatically shuts off in 25 minutes I believe, so that’s another plus – you don’t have to worry about it running all night long. I’m a big believer in reading reviews, and the amount of 5 stars this device has received, made it a no-brainer to buy. I highly recommend this product.

    I forgot to take a pic with it in use.. but I absolutely loved it! The light was adjustable, as was the sound on the machine. The turtle lit up the entire ceiling in our master rm and with the sound of the ocean it was so soothing. As an adult, it relaxed me! Almost fell asleep, until the machine automatically turned off, just as it says it does. Love this!

  41. SarahMarie318

    My son loves it, I purchased it for him when he was 10months old. He quickly figured out how to turn it on and off when he wanted. He never sleeps without it.

  42. Kimberly Reid

    I thought I was purchasing this for my infant grandson. However, when visiting him recently I found that the music was lightly playing and the wave like blue swirls on the ceiling were not for the sleeping baby alone but also for my son and daughter-in-law. They both told me that they LOVE it and that it has helped them sleep as well.

  43. Amanda Fuller

    I bought this for by nephew who is on the spectrum. I bought it about 2 years ago. He loves it! He goes into his room every night and turns it on to calm down before bed. His parents thank me for it every chance they get.

  44. Meg

    I bought this for my toddler who was having a hard time going to sleep at after we had some smoke alarms go off and he became nervous at bed time. Funny thing is it didn’t work like I wanted at the time (I was hoping he would enjoy the lights and sound and stop thinking about being nervous), but now a few months later he loves it. He requests his lullaby turtle music before bed every night. And I love this thing as well. My husband and I have used it in our room a few times as well after our son has fallen asleep. It is so relaxing! I highly recommend it.

  45. Linder9b213

    I bought one of these for grand-nephew. Then, after reading other reviews, decided to get one for myself. It has a timer, 23 min, on it and I have never been awake to hear it turn off. I would recommend for anyone who has difficulty falling asleep.

  46. Hawk eye

    I stumbled across this item while surfing Amazon, and decided to get it for myself based on other adult user’s reviews. I am in my late 20’s, and have recently been promoted into a lot more responsibilities at work, so it can be hard for me to fall asleep when my mind keeps running. This turtle helps a lot more than I thought.I use this with the ocean sound effects, and it helps me relax. The ocean sounds aren’t of the highest quality, but that isn’t much of a deal, I think quiet, slightly muffled waves sounds encourage relaxation a lot more than loud, booming, crashing waves. As other reviewers have also stated, the water motion display is juddery, but it is suffice for my needs. This is a wonderful sleeping aid, and I wish I had found it earlier in life!

  47. Ismaela Swanson

    Bought this for our godson. And he loved it.But when we played it for a trial the soft music and images made me want to sleep with it also.I really recommend it as a baby gift!

  48. Brittani

    My 21mo is hard to get settled at night and nap. If I direct him to watch the ceiling he will fall asleep while watching and listening to the waves.

  49. Teresa Ramirez

    It’s so cute, and something to calm a new born baby ,first I ordered in blue and when I realize it was going to a baby girl, I change to purple,maybe I din’t do it rigth, and I ended up with the blue…I will like to buy another one, but I can”t find it .

  50. Melanie

    My son loves this turtle and sleeps with it every night for more than a year and a half. Batteries do last for some time. I like that it turns it self off after a while. The LED bulb did stop working recently so I purchased a new one. I did feel it was worth it.

  51. troublestarr2000

    I bought this for my 3yo son. We had a light/projector/music thing that was starting to make a horrible sound and we needed a replacement. We wanted something to project a soft nightlight, have some movement, and soft music. This item fits the bill. Also, the sound AND the light are adjustable. If your child is excited by bright lights this has a dimmer so you can adjust to fit your needs. We have had to replace the batteries only once in the last 6 months, and he uses every night. My 7yo niece came to visit and she also loved it. I highly reccomend.

  52. W. Murphy

    We purchased our turtle as a soothing way to help distract our little guys back to sleep without turning on the ceiling fan (their other favorite distraction), and it worked GREAT! …but then after about two months of use the lights began to dim and within a week they were barely on at all. We changed the batteries, cleaned the contacts, pressed all the buttons… to no avail. If you roll the boringness knob you would occasionally see the lights flicker, but that was it. It hasn’t been dropped or rough-housed, in fact it hasn’t ever left the bedside table where it lives. What a shame to see such an expensive item fail so quickly, especially when it isn’t directly used by the child.We have contacted Cloud B and hopefully they will be able replace our defective unit.UPDATE: After a few days, I was contacted by customer support at Cloud B. Directly underneath the email note where I explained that I changed the batteries twice they recommended that I try changing the batteries… sheesh! Their alternative was that if I was not satisfied with those results (and I was not – it was still not working) then I could send it to them AT MY EXPENSE and that they would look at it and replace it if they found it to be defective. Nearly a MONTH later we received a new unit… no note of apology, no offer to pay for shipping their defective unit, nada. The new unit is much brighter than the previous one, which leads me to believe that Cloud B quality control was lacking when our first unit went out the door. Hopefully this unit lasts more than a couple of months.In the end, there are a number of companies who make similar products and who care about your satisfaction and want your business much more than the folks at Cloud B… This will be our last product from this company.

  53. Daniel J. Bargielski

    Baby loves it! Loves staring at the lights on the ceiling when being put to bed. Does what it’s supposed to.

  54. LeLapin

    Is there some kind of black magic going on with this turtle? I don’t know what it is, but my 2 month old is in love with the tranquil turtle. If she starts fussing or is inconsolable, I just take her into her room, close the blinds, turn out the lights, settle us into her glider and turn on the turtle using the ocean sounds. Within a minute or two max, she is completely blessed out and content, sometimes falling asleep but just often alert and awake but completely calm. It has made the witching hour (you parents know what I mean) so much more tolerable. We are still co-sleeping at this point, so I can’t testify to its magical sleep inducing properties when crib training but I fully anticipate using it extensively when we reach that point. I’ve spoken with several other mothers I know who have balked at this purchase because of the price, but do not hesitate -buy it! Because of this, I am making this my go to baby shower/new baby gift. Totally worth every penny and more.

  55. Sam

    I LOVE this turtle. The light really looks like a swimming pool reflection. The wave sounds are soothing to both baby and parents. Plush part is very soft and has a sweet looking face. Easy to turn on and off and has a 20 minute auto shut off timer. The brightness and volume controls are great for different room conditions. Bed time is smoother and quicker with this little guy.

  56. M. Freed

    Even better than expected. The entire ceiling is projected with blue waves and the motion feature that can be turned on and off gently rocks back and forth simulating water. The sound feature can also be turned on and off which is the sound of ocean waves. This is the most awesome thing we got for the nursery, very pleased and worth every penny. I would have expected to find something this cool at Spencer’s gifts.

  57. Nan J

    This item is the bomb for little ones. I said for little ones, but truth be told my 10 year old grandson loves this item too. He said he sleep with the ocean sound every nite. The fact it does have an automatic timer which is fantastic.. Oh it has a soft light that illuminate the ceiling. Wonderful tranquil nite toy for bedtime.

  58. Amazon Customer

    My almost 2 yr old was starting to give us a hard time at bedtime. Even though we had a similar product (the turtle that shines stars onto the ceiling) this one is worth every penny as well. It’s calming sounds and appearance of waves is so calming I fall asleep even faster than my son! lol So glad I splurged.

  59. D. Naasz

    We got this for our 9 month old. The color is beautiful, the product is made well, the light motion is soothing and the sounds are peaceful. You can make the “water motion” stay still or move and you can brighten and dim the light. It comes with basic ocean/water sounds or a couple different soft melodies. We prefer the ocean/water sounds…helps put baby to sleep comfortably. The turtle is the perfect size-less than a foot long and about 8 inches wide. He is soft everywhere, but the plastic shell on his back. We have used it every night for at least a couple hours since we received it a few weeks ago and have had no problems and are still using the batteries it came with. I would recommend to friends and plan on getting these as shower gifts.*just a side note – we compared prices and found it cheapest on Amazon from this seller. It was nearly $15 more at a local baby store.

  60. DMD

    I was given this little turtle as a gift for my daughter when she was a baby and it was probably the best thing I ever received. The lights and sounds are so beautiful my daughter never minded bedtime because it creates such a calming/relaxing atmosphere for little ones. After 10 years, it finally stopped working and she wanted another one! I loved this so much I have given it to multiple friends for their baby showers and they said the same thing- it’s a lifesaver for bedtime. If you’re struggling with baby’s napping or wondering what to get someone for a gift, this is exactly what you want.

  61. M. Monroe

    My son was getting up in the night a lot saying it was too dark in his room. Now we turn on tranquil turtle and he goes back to sleep. He’s 5 and I was worried he was too old for this, but it was perfect. He loves the music as well.

  62. Tretana

    My son loved the way the shell looks. We’re excited to try it tonight

  63. Wonder

    It’s so cute and lovely. One wishes to cuddle it all the time. The light at night time reflect all over the room. It really feels one is underwater. I bought it to give it to my grandchild not yet born.

  64. margaret hart

    We were coaxing my granddaughter to sleep alone, above all after birth of baby brother but positively. This has been a boon and she loves it. She was afraid of the dark so the magic turtle has solved that problem and she loves the seaside so what better than the waves and dappled light play? A winner

  65. Amazon Customer

    My son loves this turtle and has used this every night to help him fall asleep. We started using it when he was a newborn and it’s been in his bed ever since. It had lasted us 6 years before we had to replace it. I’m happy to see that they still make it.

  66. A. Shannon

    I had Twilight Turtle however I saw an in-store demonstration of Tranquil turtle and I had to buy one. I bought one for my 18 month old niece who absolutely loves it. She turns it on every night. I bought one for my dad at Christmas who thought it was also very calming and then I had to buy one for my own son who is about 1 year old.It is hard to describe how great it is but once you see it in person you are going to want one. I just bought one for a co-worker for a baby shower gift and she says it is a hit with all of her kids and that she puts it in her room at night. It is a bit pricey but it has been a crowd pleaser with everyone that has seen and used it. The one I bought for my son is about 8 months old now, used every night and still works great. It is my go-to baby shower and young child gift now.

  67. jillian brinser

    We love this turtle! My husband jokes that we should buy one for us since the wave like light and sound/soothing music is so relaxing. Our baby is just starting to see far enough to see the reflections on the ceiling and loves it. The wave sound is very similar to a shushing sound and really helps her fall asleep.

  68. KariR

    Amazing. Works like a charm on our little one who fights bedtime. Highly recommend!

  69. vinsap

    This one has become my new pet. It’s so cute. The sounds are calming and relaxing, plus great sea water lighting effect. Five stars !

  70. Pop-Pop

    This excellent tool has been used EVERY night for more than two years. It’s amazingly soothing. The soft blue light projecting on the ceiling is very effective. The sound is good. The batteries last a really long time, and except for the one led that stopped working early on, it has remained in good working order. The kids (now 2 and 4) are so accustomned to it, I’m buying another one JUST IN CASE the original wears out. So far, so good!Update, December, 2016:Still working! One bank of LED’s has gone out, and the sound has gotten a little wonky, But it’s STILL used every night. I gave the replacement I bought to other new parents, and now getting yet another for a new granddaughter.Hopefully the quality has not declined over the years, because this turtle/nightlight has been indispensable!

  71. Tiffany

    Best for soothing lights and sounds!!! Best sleep machine to cure insomnia too! We have purchased this for everyone we know who has or is soon to have a baby! Everyone loves it.

  72. Sierra Griffith

    Love this! Our newborn was a pretty easy baby, but when she would get fussy and we couldn’t calm her, we would turn down the lights, pop her in her wing and turn on the turtle and it would immediately calm her everytime and put her to sleep. When she was a little older also use to turn it on at bedtime and it would put her right to sleep. Worked great until summer time when her room wasn’t dark enough for it.

  73. Allison

    My husband and I love this, it’s puts us to sleep. More importantly it helps put our 5 month old to sleep. The “waves” it projects onto the ceiling are mesmerizing. Buy it for everyone in the family.

  74. Anika R Duvall

    Love love love this little turtle! I had always been given the “advice” to put my baby down sleepy but awake…HA! It wasn’t until I had the Tranquil Turtle that I actually could lay my son down in his crib and he would calmly fall asleep all on his own. It was a miracle… He loves looking at the lights and the music lulls him right to sleep. I highly recommend this product.

  75. J. Richard Ludgin

    My Grandson loves this. He has one at his house and now he has one here. Very effective and soothing!

  76. Alexandra Chavasse

    One of the best products I have ever bought, I have bought one for every one of my grandchildren. I would get one for myself if I wasn’t watching TV.

  77. Amazon Customer

    I love that’s it’s tranquil and good quality material.

  78. Analyzer

    The waves of this turtle are very calming and our now 14 month old still loves it even after 3 months of using it. You can adjust the brightness and the sound level which makes nap time that much easier. We use energizer batteries for it and they last about a month of 2-3 uses/day. Great buy

  79. Busy Mom

    Gorgeous bright waves on the ceiling….great wave sound and ethereal music options. Matches any sea creature themed nursery. Love it!!!

  80. Ashley W

    Before purchasing this item either my husband or I would have to lay down with our 3 year old each night until he fell asleep. Most of time what would end up happening is we would fall asleep also. We purchased this turtle for him to use at nap time and night time, he now falls asleep by himself and we no longer have to lay there with him. We call the turtle his protector and he loves it. We have purchased other Cloub B products in the past and love the quality of the products.

  81. T. Johnson

    Perfect for helping little ones rest while going to sleep

  82. Rebekah Jones

    My ten month old loves her turtle. It projects blue ‘waves’ onto the ceiling and we alternate between the sweet melody and the ocean waves. She goes to sleep within minutes. I highly recommend this toy for your bedtime routine.

    Bought one for our infant and he loves it so much I bought another as a backup! It even puts me to sleep as well!

    This is our third one of these. The first is a turtle and is pushing five years, I’ve had to crack it open to lubricate the motion mechanism a few times, but still running strong. The second was the green frog, it lasted 18 months before the light went permanently dim (everything else worked fine). The third was also a turtle and barely lasted four months before the light went permanently dim. On the last one it would also strobe, and just touching the dial for the dimmer would make the light flicker, so I got the idea that they got a bad run of resistors (the dials). After some tinkering it turns out I was right and I fixed the frog and the newer turtle!!!!Before I get into how, a word to the wise, this WILL void any warranty that may or may not exist (the company is pretty bad about warranties). Also, this will permanently disable the dial for the dimmer, it will be on full bright from here on out.Tools needed; A good jewelers screwdriver, a long smooth shank is best (read step 3); soldering iron and a small amount of solder; a wire stripper for very small wires isn’t required, but will help; wire snippers will help but are not requiredStep 1: remove the battery cover and batteriesStep 2: remove the four screws surrounding the battery cover and remove that part (it’s a black plastic cover surrounding the battery compartment, hot glued to the plush, remove slowly and carefully)Step 3: unscrew the 7 screws holding on the translucent shell (this is by far the most difficult step, you’ll have to feel around with finger and screwdriver for the screws, then get the screwdriver as perpendicular as possible without ripping the plush, a non-smooth shank screwdriver WILL get stuffing wrapped around it, I found it best to leave the screws in place unless they came all the way loose)Step 4: remove the shell (use caution, some of the screws may not be fully un-screwed, there is some back and forth required here)Step 5: remove the four screws from the newly exposed blue or green interior plastic (these will be shorter screws, as will all the rest of the screws from this point forward. This looks like it’s several parts, it’s actually just one, one one of mine I had to carefully pry in a number of spots around the plush edge, don’t force it)Step 6: remove the blue or green interior plastic (this may be a bit tricky, it’s flimsy and one of mine was on there quite tight. Use caution and work with it, it may be hot glued down, lots of wires running to this so just flip it upside down and DON’T break or disconnect the wires)Step 7: remove the 3 screws from the small pulley near the head and remove the pulley assembly (just leave the rubber band on it)Step 8: remove the larger pulley (no screws to remove for this, remove the rubber band with it)Step 9: remove the 2 screws with a large flat head holding on the speaker, then remove the speaker (one of mine was hot glued down and I had to cut the glue line then gingerly use the screwdriver in one of the holes to pry it out, again DON’t break or disconnect the wires, just set it as out of the way as possible)Step 10: remove the 2 screws with a large flat head holding in the dial for the dimmer and pull out the dimmerNote there are a couple of ways to do step 11 thru 13, I’ll go over what I did and then give the options afterwardStep 11: snip or carefully work and break one of the two wires connected the dimmer dial (it doesn’t really matter which one)Step 12: strip some additional length out of the wire you just removed (the plastic was soft enough I just used my fingernails)Step 13: solder the loose wire to the wire that is sill connected to the dimmerAlternatively you can get a small length of wire and ‘jumper’ the two wires, or remove both and solder them together.Step 14: Put in the batteries and test your workRe-assembly is the opposite as above, I’ve noted the screw types (there were three different types in mine, longer, shorter and large head). The larger pulley has a small pulley that goes facing up (visible), don’t forget to reconnect the rubber bands, and align the translucent rocker. Best to re-test your work prior to Step 3. Step 3 will again be the most difficult, remember that there are small choking hazards inside of this so GET THAT SHELL SECURED!!! Also keep in mind that the screws are metal and the screw holes are plastic, don’t force the screw.

    I have 4 kids under 6 and we love these. We are currently on our second one in 6 years. The first one lasted 5 years until my 2 year old spilled water over the buttons and it stopped working after that. Otherwise it was very durable. When our first one got damaged and we had to get rid of it I really dreaded spending the money on one again so I bought a couple of cheaper ones hoping that they would suffice… and while they are OK… they can’t compare to this specific night soother. The music is SO soothing and sweet sounding and it goes with the moving ocean waves really well (it does also play just ocean waves but we prefer the music). It has lulled all of my kids to sleep when they were babies (and the new one we just bought currently lulls our newest baby) the moving wave light and the music blend is just beautiful. No joke. I spent money on a few cheaper versions and they just don’t soothe a baby like this one. The only downside is you can’t recharge them or plug them in… but at least my baby goes right to sleep! Sanity saver at night.

    Just purchased this item for my 19-month-old daughter. She was mesmerized by the underwater effect projected onto her nursery ceiling and the soothing ocean wave sound. Needless to say, she fell asleep in half the time. Highly recommended!

  88. Angie

    We LOVE this turtle! We’ve made it part of the bed time routine for our 5 month old, and I swear my husband falls asleep faster than our son if he’s in the room because it’s so soothing:) I turn off the other lights and turn on this turtle during our bed time nursing session. It calms us both and makes bed time more enjoyable for me. The sounds are very calming and the moving waves of blue light are relaxing to watch. The shutoff timer is the right length for us and the volume settings are good, too. I think as our son gets older he’ll like it even more.

  89. Dmitri Popov

    Great help for parents! Babies fall asleep much quicker and enjoy their time doing so! There are other models and colors, but after a research we found this particular Aqua Turtle model to be the best available!!! Too bad Cloud B is not producing more of them. Even more strange that there is literally NOTHING better on the market… what are producers thinking??

  90. Lucey Brown

    I love the tranquil turtle. I recently bought 2 of them one for my 8yr and one for my 3yr old. My 8yr was having aggression problems and after a week w/turtle he has mellowed out. 3yr old has active imagination right away said mom look at that shark… even my hubby takes hot showers with turtles so he can relax***

  91. Kindle Customer

    My husband thought I was crazy for buying this, but after seeing how it soothes our little guy to sleep it’s worth every penny. It’s part of our bedtime routine.

  92. Ashley B

    My son absolutely loves this. I turn it on set him in the crib and he drifts off. I love how you can adjust the brightness of the turtle light. The sound of the ocean is very soothing. It is a wonderful item!!!

  93. MW

    I bought this as a gift for my nephew, but after I turned it on to show him, I wanted one for myself! I was afraid the light would be really weak and not really cover much of the ceiling, but this thing delivers. It’s really cool.

  94. Snoopy

    Have now purchased two of these turtles and my little niece and nephew love them. My niece would not go to sleep at night and this turtle has now become part of her bedtime routine. She now looks forward to bedtime and falls asleep listening to the sounds of the ocean.

  95. Lutfia San

    It was too bright for an infant who likes to put everything in her mouth, including this turtle’s shell. So I took it back and love it as long as it is placed below my bed where the brightness from its shell is not in my line of sight.

  96. Jules

    One of the best baby products out there. My husband and I have been desperately searching for a product to help our son fall asleep and stay asleep. I just received it in the mail and tested it out immediately for his afternoon nap. WOW. Just wow. He fell asleep for the first time on his own and is still asleep! No rocking, no baby carrier, no bottle, and most importantly no tears! He fell asleep on his own while watching and listening to the waves.Thank you Cloud B for making the Tranquil Turtle. I’ll be sure to buy this for every baby shower now!

  97. RustyTX55

    Kids live it and easy for a 2 year old to operate.

  98. Diane Peyton

    So very cute. Like this.

  99. Kindle Customer

    I got this as a nightlight/soothing machine for my newborn, but I think I like it more than her! It gives off enough light to be able to see her, but the light is a soothing blue glow from the wave pattern. It reminds me of being in an aquarium in one of those walk through tunnels. The wave crashing sound is realistic and very calming. We use it every night at bedtime for our 6 week old. She has started definitely watching the patterns on the ceiling as she falls asleep. Great product for babies and parents!

  100. Fitzgerald

    Our baby gets anxious when sleeping – keeps moving her hairs, touching her hair and making noises. The music and lights from tranquil turtle entertain and relax her enough for her to fall asleep. It works like a charm for our baby.

  101. Panadda

    Best 50 bucks we’ve ever spent! For minths pur baby wouldnt go to sleep without one of us rocking him. But since we purchase this he has fallen asleep all by himself!! I feel better about when its time to transition him to his own room! Only thing is i wish you the music and light would last longer!

  102. A. Baker

    This may be the beast purchase I have made floor my daughter, my husband and my peace of mind.We had a surprise pregnancy right after the birth of our first daughter. Then my father in law passed away unexpectedly. Our daughter wasn’t even a year old and began sleeping by my husband’s side as he worked through the loss of his father. I them went into early labor and had to be hospitalized so my daughter went and stayed at my parents, who hardly sleep at night. At this point my daughter began having a horrible time sleeping at night. She would nap a little during the day, but she cried all night long. My husband could not stand the sound of our little girl’s heartache and he insisted on holding her all night. Making work the next day very difficult, and in his field, dangerous.Searching for an answer I stumbled across the tranquil turtle. The price scared me but, after reading the reviews, I had to give it a try. I am so glad I did. The first night my daughter only whimpered a few times when the timer ran out. We did this three times and she was asleep. Asleep! Finally! The next night we turned on the turtle once and she did not wake up until the next morning at sunrise.This item is worth it. If you are having trouble with your little one going to bed at night, I strongly suggest the Cloud B Tranquil Turtle.

  103. mnm1017

    We love falling asleep to this lil guy. Our niece had one for her 2 year old to help her fall asleep. We got one for ourselves and when a friend registered for one, we knew from personal experience lol that they would love it, too.

  104. The Youngs

    We already have the sleep sheep for my daughter so when we needed something for my son, we wanted something different. The lighted shell is a very cute effect. I would recommend this product to anyone!

  105. LSU Tiger

    Our 2 year old little boy Slade loves his “Turdy”He won’t go to bed without it. It has stood up to his abuse as well. This is the Mercedes-Benz of “pillow pets”

  106. Katherine P.

    I love the Tranquil Turtle! Very cute face in a very nice blue color. I was skeptical that the light effects would really show on the ceiling but it really makes you feel as if you’re underwater. I like the water sounds as well as the soft soothing melody and I like that you can change the brightness of the light as well.

  107. M. Lera

    I somehow only thought about getting this turtle when my daughter turned 19 months and OMG what was I thinking before!? Best product ever. Incredibly soothing, my little one falls asleep right away and wakes up the next morning very happy. It is so relaxing that putting her to sleep doesn’t feel like such a chore anymore. Please do yourself a favor and get one!

  108. Amazon Customer

    Love this turtle my grandchildren have a tough time getting to sleep, and I tell you this is so nice I it put me to sleep also, so glad I got it.

  109. Alvaro

    I needed a second one of the blue turtle night lights. This is because they are very versatile and great. Providing good lighting, soothing music, (and my favorite) waves from the ocean.

  110. Dustin P.

    This helped my son go to sleep when he was a newborn for a little while until he lost interest in it. I’ll be honest I’m tempted to use it in my bedroom because of how relaxing the ocean sound and the “waves” that are projected on the ceiling.

  111. John Gildenstern

    We bought this for a newborn on the way, and it works great. If I can remember, I’ll try to leave feedback on how the baby likes it. At the very least the wife and I like it.

  112. S E Stevenson

    I bought this out of desperation, as most people probably do that spend almost $50 on a stuffed turtle and rushed Saturday delivery. I needed sleep. I needed my 9 month old to sleep. We were going out of town and I figured his number of night wakings would get worse with him getting over tired and getting only car naps for a day as we travelled. I was willing to give Tranquil Turtle a shot. After one of the worst car trips I’ve ever had with my kids, we got in really late and I was not hopeful that my little guy would get to sleep at all after some car sleep and then being up playing in a new place at 11pm. Go through a modified bedtime routine, read some stories and place little guy in the pack and play, turn on the turtle and leave the room. He talked a little, he babbled, he got quiet. I couldn’t tell if he was asleep so I went up to spy and he was sitting up admiring the lovely under water effect the turtle creates in a dark room. I then watched him flop over on his side, raise an arm in the air to wave at the “waves” (I guess in surrender) and by the time I got back downstairs he was asleep. NO CRYING. We’ve been using the turtle for naps and bedtime for two full days and there have been no long drawn out battles. he just lays there and goes to sleep at some point. Even in the middle of the night if he wakes, turning the turtle back on does the trick. I figure he’ll get the button pushing down soon enough. This turtle is magic. I am curious to see if the novelty wears off or if it still has the same effect at home when we are done with our trip. I am really excited to use it in our camper as it’s difficult for him to get settled there due to the openness of his bed there and general busier sleeping area. I will update the review when we try it out. I am really really pleased so far with the turtle. The sounds are not too loud and optional. You can make the light move to make a wave like effect or be still. Some people complained that it only stays on for 23 minutes but I think it works out OK as it usually takes LOs 15 to 20 minutes to get to sleep – I think if it went on longer than that it might be a distraction. I suspect my guy is lulled in to this sleepy state as he watches the light show and if still awake when it stops he just nods off to dreamland. So glad I bought it.

    I absolutely loved this! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is trying to put their children to sleep. I’m expecting and I’m due next month. I bought this for my baby as well as the regular starry night turtle. If you purchase both together and use them both at the same time they look really nice on the ceiling. Stars and the ocean! I’m about to try this on myself when going to sleep since I have difficulty sleeping myself. I felt a lot more relaxed when I listened to the little melody that you can play with it.UPDATE: 12/22/2016My kid is almost 4 now. This still works just as it did when I first bought this 3 years ago. She loves this thing and she swears by this going to sleep, even in new environments where she hasn’t slept before. The only problem is that it’s too good that she gets really upset when the batteries start dying out. This is actually really irritating because she’ll wake up in the middle of the night bawling her eyes out BEGGING to have us replace the batteries. Thank goodness that the ones we use are rechargeable 3x AA batteries so we usually have an extra set handy just in case. Last night my husband just about had enough because she now started complaining that the wave thing stopped moving (she didn’t press the ‘move’ button) and she cried so hard about it at 3 am. Again, it’s too good that she has first world problems with this thing and he wants to throw it out so she can stop depending on it. I really wish they had a plug-in version of this and this will solve all of our parental sleeping problems.

  114. rmarinea

    This thing is memorizing! The wave action can move or be still, the light can be made brighter or dimmer, and the sound can be silent, wave sounds, or a soft lulling music. The light from the turtle is enough that it can cover the ceiling of a fairly large bedroom. It automatically shuts off after about 20 minutes. My baby loves this thing. We have to make the turtle “sing” every night at bedtime. I only have 2 complaints:1. I wish the sound and lights would slowly become quieter and dimmer instead of just turning off at the 20 minute mark.2. Yes – a minor complaint but…The music is on a loop which is fine. But each loop is only about 20 seconds. After you listened to this thing for the 16 millionth time you really to wish that the loop was just a bit longer melody wise.

  115. nancenance

    I love love love this Turtle. My daughter has never had a problem taking a nap but she falls asleep faster when there is some sort of white noise. This works perfect and she was just in awe the first time i turned the lights. It was the best feeling ever watching her enjoy her tranquil turtle.

  116. IamDeb

    Every child deserves these turtles. I have 12 grands and everyone under 11 yrs. old has a turle night light. They have green, blue, and purple. Oh, my nieces have one too.

  117. Maureen M

    We ordered this when my daughter turned 3 to try to help with her fear of the dark. Her night light was creating shadows that were scaring her so we ordered this. It illuminates her room just enough so that she is not afraid but it is not bright enough to keep her awake. She prefers the music function but the white noise function is also excellent. Highly recommend!

  118. Amazon Customer

    My lil ones Christmas gift! We call her tortuga because she stretches her lil neck out like a turtle. She has always loved the white noise it helps her sleep and the song and underwater lights soothe her… the blue lights relax me too

  119. chubaka

    The tranquil turtle is a great buy, my girlfriend loves it. the lights and sounds of the ocean are Zen. I have to buy a couple more for friends and family

  120. holobhAmazon

    Love this sound soother, perfect for parents and baby, only thing I wish was different is if you could have the option to have sound on without the light, the light is pointless during the day and it just drains the battery I make sure to at least turn off the movement to conserve battery life.

  121. Elena Pape

    I absolutely LOVE this turtle. Everything is adjustable (volume, music, motion) and it’s durable. We were taking my 22 month old granddaughter for a week. We live 3 hrs away and we only see her every couple of months. Her parents work hard and odd hours and she has a changing bedtime routine. I bought this turtle to help with settling her down and getting her on a set routine at bedtime. It worked great! In fact, I am a very busy person and have trouble falling asleep because of a racing mind. It helped me too! After my granddaughter was ready for bed I’d read her a few books (ie, Good Night Moon) and once she was settled I’d turn on turtle and lay next to her until she fell asleep (took about 2 min. with this turtle). I fell asleep too a couple of times! This turtle is amazing. I highly recommend this purchase.

  122. Sarah AntczakSarah Antczak

    We absoluty love this thing. My LO is 2, she’s a rough sleeper. Sometimes it takes over an hour for her to fall asleep. We’ve tried numerous white noise machines/lullabye music and nothing has seemed to help. This little guy can project waves on the ceiling and walls, they can either sway or be stationary. You can choose between waves breaking or a soothing melody with waves and seagulls. The only downside I see, is the light has to be on to play the music. Outside of that it is perfect! The music cycles for 20ish minutes, we’ve only had to replay it twice since using it. We love it so much we’re thinking of buying another for our room. It’s put us to sleep listening to it through her monitor. Worth every penny.

  123. Felicity Gillespie

    Our son was soo fussy from being overtired and/or gas. I watch him while he drifts off to sleep listening and naps on his tummy with the ocean sound. He is so peaceful, I can sit here and type this or read a book without him crying. I would definitely recommend it as a great source for ambient noise and soothing lights. It shuts off after a while but he is usually asleep by then.I would recommend it to others and will be buying it for my friends with babies at their showers.

  124. Fitfirefighter

    I can easily say this is our #1 baby item! Its my go to gift for baby showers and every mom I’ve given one to is amazed at how handy they are!We got this when my daughter was about 15 months because she was having trouble settling down at bedtime and thought this might help. I’d seen the constellation turtles before and wasn’t impressed so for almost $50 this was a shot in the dark. She was instantly in love! She is 2 now we own two tranquil turtles because most days this turtle goes everywhere with her and I just can’t risk being without it at bedtime! Get one you will not regret it! 🙂

  125. Loretta K. Smith

    Baby loves staring at the waves on the ceiling.

  126. Nicky

    We bought these as an upgrade to the fisher price sea horses. My twins are 2.5 and needed something longer and more appealing. We love these. Small and easily transported.

  127. Troy

    I would totally buy again for another baby or even as a gift to a baby shower. This thing has made some long nights a little easier with my baby. Sometimes it seems like my 2 month old was just fighting sleep and needed something to lull him to sleep. This turtle is great. It put me to sleep as well. The soothing ocean waves and water reflecting lights are awesome!

  128. JoelJoel

    Exactly what I was looking for! This works wonderful as a sensory light for my ASD kid.I loved it so much I just purchased another in the other color, so cute and worth the price!

  129. Bad Irene

    The light effect is absolutely hypnotic. Coupled with either the sound of waves crashing or the peaceful music, it’s a tranquilizer. My son wasn’t into this thing at 12 months old, but now at 18 months it’s a silver bullet for ending bedtime meltdowns. Literally, he will instantly go from a full-blown screaming meltdown to entrancement as soon as this toy turns on.Only con would be battery life–It tends to go though batteries faster than I expected it to.

  130. Krissy D

    Grandson loves this.

  131. CChampagne

    My kids love this turtle. I have a 6.5 year old and a 2 month old. My 6 year old kept it in his room to “test” it before my daughter arrived. Now, I keep it in my daughters crib and use it almost every night to help sooth her to sleep and it works perfectly. I would recommend this turtle to anyone with small kids. The age range can span for years, making it the perfect gift or toy that kids will not quickly outgrow. (Which makes it worth the price.)

  132. Emily

    Beautiful music, water sounds, and it makes the entire room light up like you’re at the waterside. It has lots of options so you can decide what you want playing or it can get silent and just play the lights in the room. We have white walls and it puts my baby to sleep in a few minutes. I just sit there and feel like I’m at a spa. It’s so relaxing and I’ll admit it, I fall asleep to it also. It has a timer so that it shuts off In 16-18 minutes, I forgot. We love our turtle. My mother wants one for her room too.

  133. Terrence Davis

    WONDERFUL!!! This little turtle is sooooo soothing and relaxing! So cool for anyone! I bought two, one for my one year old grandson and one for my 16 year old daughter. They love this turtle! Worth the money!

  134. js

    Does what it says. very calming with nice ocean lighting effects on the ceiling. Thinking about getting one for the parents room!

  135. Jessica Hamilton

    My 13 month old loves this turtle! When he wakes up in the middle of the night he turns it on then immediately goes back to sleep. SUCH A LIFESAVER! Not to mention that he loves carrying it around the house during the day.My husband actually wants one of these as well! It’s super relaxing

  136. Amanda Duncan

    This is one of my favorite items I’ve purchased for my 2 year old daughter since she was born. We had several white noise machines but this is by far the best. The waves it projects look incredible. I like both sounds it plays but especially love the lullaby with seagulls. It plays just long enough to lull her to sleep. It creates a tranquil, peaceful environment in any room. I wouldn’t mind one for myself! We have used it every night since we bought it over a year ago and my daughter often carries it around the house or snuggles it in bed. My only cons are the price ($60 is steep for a noise machine) and it goes through batteries pretty quickly, but I still recommend it to everyone. I will probably buy another for my son when he is born.

  137. gamgam

    Original review: My 7 year old loves this so much.Update: This great nightlight lasted years and stood up to a lot of abuse.

  138. S. Rizzo

    I gave this to my grandson, two year old for Christmas. He loves it, it is very soft and the light is perfect. He sleeps with it everynight

  139. Marti S

    It is soothing, I love the “waves” moving on the ceiling and hearing the ocean… I bought one for myself and my friend who is expecting… I would highly recommend it. It has an automatic timer so it turns it self off after a bit.

  140. Jennifer S. Orin

    We are giving this product as a gift in the near future. At this point we don’t know how it will help the child. The child we are giving it to is autistic and we are hoping it helps with anxiety.

  141. Susie Callahan

    This has been life saving for my first daughter and now my second daughter. I don’t know what I’ll do when it doesn’t work anymore. The song is soft and soothing the lights on the ceiling mimic the waves and almost hypnotize you! It’s amazing!!

  142. Jackie Oh

    I was exited to get this turtle. I thought the idea of water reflected on the ceiling would soothe our baby when he was put down to sleep. We have had this for awhile now and he uses it as his nightlight when he goes to bed. It still works great after being used daily. Fast shipping by the seller.

  143. Kayla Cummings

    We’ve had this turtle for almost 3 years now and it still works like a charm, despite the rough play of two boys. Bought it when my son was 2yrs old to help him sleep and it quickly became a necessity for bedtime! It helped him to stay in bed and fall asleep on his own. Even after 3 years, he still loves to fall asleep to the soothing music and lights. I don’t regret spending $50 on this little light one bit!

  144. Mentatassasin

    I love this turtle, I purchase done for my daughter about 6 years ago and while it still played and lit up the oscillating plastic disc stopped working so I ordered a new one although these are pretty pricey to be honest. I gave it five stars even though the most recent one was broken when it arrived based on the experience I had prior…everyone has manufacturing difficulties and I have a friend who is a therapist that actually uses these in their sessions and it works great on not only kids but adults as well. I highly recommend this product but wish I could have found one in purple.

  145. E. Homar

    Fantastic product! We have been using it for about 2 weeks, and baby seems to enjoy it. The sounds are soothing and the whole ceiling is awash in color. Baby sleeps in our room, and neither mom nor dad are kept awake by the sounds or lights. Okay, so mom and dad actually like it too. The gentle movement and soft sounds are quite relaxing!

  146. Colonial Girl

    I have purchased the “Tranquil Turtle” for 2 different baby showers. The first baby is now 4 years old and his brother is 2 years old. They won’t go to bed without it! The parents were asked what their favorite gift was outside of their registry gifts….it was unanimous…Tranquil Turtle! I just purchased the second for a yet to be born baby….my friend, the baby’s grandmother, said the first thing the “to be” parents did when they got home was to open “Tranquil Turtle” to check it out….they are both already in love with it. Needless to say, Tranquil Turtle will be my “signature gift” for any future babies! Quality made product…and it does create a very tranquil atmosphere. Oh, forgot to mention…. I bought one for myself too!

  147. G.H.

    This is our second one – our now four year old falls asleep to this every night. I brought it with us last year on vacation and it put me to sleep too! Wish it didn’t cost quite so much but I love it – great product!

  148. Short One

    The turtle is very cute. Gave this as a present and my niece loved it! it does create a light show on the ceiling that looks like you are 10 feet deep and looking up to the surface of the water. And the ocean sounds are very relaxing. Worth the purchase.

  149. Wendy Levins

    This little guy is just perfect. We have bought a lot of baby products since our son was born over 5 months ago, and this is one of the few items that we were so happy we purchased. It is a well thought out design and has every option you think it should have. We use it every time we put our son to bed- it has become his sleep cue and the music and image lulls him to sleep. Don’t hesitate and buy this guy- you won’t regret it!

  150. JohnJohn

    The media could not be loaded.

     I purchased this little guy for my three month old who has been having difficulty falling asleep. Although it didn’t quite get her to snooze, she loves and is completely mesmerized by the soothing light and sounds. I feel that this is a toy that she’ll appreciate more as a toddler rather than a three month old. It’s really cute and lightweight.

  151. Amanda B.

    My friend had a baby and had one of these in her nursery. After helping put her daughter down twice I couldn’t help but buy this for myself- I’m 29. The lights remind me of a pool at night and the music is soothing with the sounds of the ocean in the background. If you don’t like the music you can turn that on and just keep the ocean sounds or have no sound at all. When my other friend had her baby I gave mine to her, and she loves it.

    My kids absolutely love falling asleep to this. Would be awesome if it was rechargeable.

  153. M. Lin

    Bought it for a little girl’s 2 year old birthday, she loves it! The lights are bright and the music is soothing. Very soft and cuddly.

  154. lugar kane

    Was a gift they liked it a lot

  155. Crow

    Second one we have purchased! Our first kid has used it every day/night for a couple of years. The second kid just got upgraded to this. Make sure you use long lasting batteries!

  156. Marine Black

    This is the absolute best purchase I’ve ever done! I use it to help my baby to go to sleep at night as well as a light for nocturne feedings. It’s really cute and soft, and sooo relaxing, even for us as adults! Buy it! This became my to go gift for my friends’s kids

  157. Peggy Woods

    This was a gift for my daughter-in-law who is expecting her first child. The baby hasn’t arrived, yet, but I am sure that this will be a great hit. All the reviews I read talked about how soothing the waves of light and the sounds were. I’m sure it will come in handy in the baby’s nursery. My only complaint is that the tranquil frog is available from several vendors at over 35% less than the turtle was. Unfortunately, my daughter-in-law is turtle crazy, so I couldn’t see buying the frog, even though it was much less expensive.

  158. D. J.

    We purchase the tranquil turtle every time we greet a “new” grandchild. This has been a wonderful addition to the baby’s nursery. As long as our kids have kids of their own, we will continue buying.

  159. Maria F. Kesel

    Gives my daughter comfort at night time. The music and light are soothing. Simple functions and mama gets extra time to herself before bed. Slow shipping even with prime but not important to me.

  160. twin mom

    I got this for my autistic son after seeing it posted on a Facebook page as a recommended gift for kids with sensory issues. He LOVES it and so do I! It is very soothing for him! The music is classical and there is a volume control. You can also control the brightness of the light and you can turn the waves on or off. I highly recommend this for autistic kids! Well worth the money!

  161. MRaws

    This turtle is a remarkable calming device for the child who has a difficult time transitioning to sleep. I use it with my grandson and wish I had for his Dad when he was little!

  162. Anetora

    love this little turtle. we were looking for a nightlight that was soothing for our 6 week old baby. he would sleep in his crib alone during the day but was terrified during the night. this kept him calm and after 2 weeks he sleeps in his crib at night . wish this came with a remote control.

  163. m.hair

    This is the 3rd one of these I have purchased. I have 1 for each of my 3 boys. I bought the 1st one 4 years ago and it is still going strong. The batteries last a month or 2, depending on how often they get turned on each night. You can control how bright the light is, how loud it plays (ocean noises or a lullaby), it will run just the light without the music but not music without light, and it runs for about 20 min before switching off automatically. We have sleep trained each boy with one and by the time they are weaned (breastfed) they go to sleep in their own bed in their own room and stay there every night and at nap time. If they wake up in the middle of the night they turn their turtle on and go back to sleep without ever getting up.

  164. Colleen

    Bought this for my 6 month old daughter to help her sleep. She was having trouble staying asleep after laying her in crib, and this adorable, soothing turtle helps! Soothing waves and light motion is so nice. A little over priced, but I think it helps. I play it for every nap and at bedtime. Timer is just enough to lull her to sleep. I think the motion scares her a bit at this point, so I turn it off, which is another nice option. Volume and brightness controls are wonderful features as well. Would definately reccommend this little guy!

  165. Morgen McDowell

    This was one of the smartest things I got my baby. Really the first reason I got it is because it seemed cool and like enough light to breastfeed by, which is true, but my son is now two and lives for this little dude at night. It’s not a huge battery hog (idk if my son abuses the lights as much as he could, but it’s usually every 2nd month) It’s amazing. If you buy one and the kid likes it, my philosophy is to buy a second one so if something happens to the first one, you can have a way to get stuff back to normal without having a meltdown at 3am. And if your kid ends up hating it, you can always use it yourself, it’s incredibly soothing and the music isn’t so shrill that its unpleasant for adults. It’s really subtle.

  166. Momof4

    My daughter loves this turtle. We also have the cloud B ladybug that projects the stars on the ceiling which is nice but this turtle is way better. I love the way it looks like there is water moving around the ceiling and with the sound of the ocean waves and seagulls with the soft music you close your eyes while listening to this and you really feel like your at the ocean. So relaxing and puts you right to sleep. Would buy again. This turtle would make a great baby shower gift.

  167. R.M

    I love it .i really didn’t think i will need it a lot . but it is amazing and a life saver .i mean i was never able to find a soothing lullaby for my baby to go to sleep .but this one have the perfect soothing lightning plus the most relaxing nature sounds for you and your baby .it is a must in our sleep routine .my only regret is that i got it after 6months for my baby .oh all the sleepless nights it could have saved earlier . but better late than never .

  168. Baby yoda

    Best night light I’ve ever purchased. Has two sound recordings, the ocean waves crashing and a relaxing tune with ocean sounds in the background. Projects waves on the ceiling and walls. Has a button to make the waves stationary though and has a brightness adjuster. Would buy this again

  169. misssarah

    I wish we had found this sooner! My 4 year old has trouble relaxing and falling asleep at night. He has never bonded to a stuffed toy. we both look forward to bed and nap time now, so that we can spend time with Tranquil Turtle! I had intended to buy the ruglar turtle star version, but saw this and was intrigued. I love how the waves move on the ceiling–really hold attention. and the music and ocean sounds are wonderful.

  170. Gioco

    I love this turtle, my husband and I use it to sleep now, and we will use it when baby comes. I like the soothing lights that move like waves and the white noise. It’s nice to be able to pick between white noise of waves or a small instrumental song and it doesn’t take that much battery time.I actually though it would be slightly bigger though, for some reason that is what I imagined for the price, but I am still happy with it because our baby will be able to hug it if he wanted.

  171. leapinlambchop

    This turtle reminds me of going to this aquarium we love. It has a very soothing music, and the light display is also very calming. My 1.5 year old loves it, he points to it so he can turn it on every night. We have had this for about 7 months, and we use it every night. We have gone through a lot of batteries, but it does play for about 20 minutes each time, so that makes sense. You might want to invest in 2 sets of good rechargeable batteries. That’s my only advice, other than that, we love this and more importantly so does our son.I just wanted to update this review because we have now owned this turtle since 2013 and my son who is now 7, seriously still uses it every night. Honestly can’t believe it is still working. It really is a very calming light and music is very soothing. Definitely recommend!!!

  172. Jenn

    Best thing ever. My nephew had one and loved it. I ended up getting one for myself i enjoyed it so much. Then for fathers day I ended up getting one for my dad because he liked my nephews so much. This seems perfect for anyone who enjoys the sound of the ocean and likes the look of the water.

  173. ZOeH

    I am very pleased with this purchase. Works really well to calm my new born

  174. B Goentzel

    We bought our first one about 4 years ago and has worked great, just needed batteries changed. So it was time to buy another one. My daughter doesn’t sleep without it. So soothing.

  175. Margo

    I Lovelovelove this guy! It’s such a pretty view on the ceiling that I often use it in MY room! I like that there’s volume control and music or sea sounds to choose from. My child uses it to sleep every night. It’s very soothing.

  176. COB

    This turtle has been part of my son’s bedtime ritual since he was 4-months old. We love the soft blue swirling light it emits, magically transforming the room into an undulating underwater world. The gentle music helps soothe him to sleep. Unlike some other toys with annoying, electronic sounding music, this one is subtle. I also appreciate that it automatically switches off after 30 minutes.

  177. tim curran

    We have two of these. One for each kid. Work great, kids love them, batteries last quite a while. Used every night. Never had any issues. First one is three years old.

  178. Ren B

    Just buy it! Amazing on not just the ceiling but the entire room! Baby loves it!

  179. Tex

    Bought this for my nephew…….. its the coolest thing since sliced bread! I think his parents enjoy it more than he does! Would totally buy it again.

  180. Neila Barnett

    It’s a little brighter than I imagined it would be but the sound and wave appearance on the wall/ceiling is very fun and relaxing.

  181. Erica C.

    Super cute, helps my son to fall asleep and calms him down . Very relaxing and good quality

  182. Amazon Customer

    Gentle lights, motion and soothing ocean waves. For my autistic 7 year old grandson who doesn’t like to sleep in a dark room. Helps him calm down to sleep. Replaced a previous one we had for a long time.

  183. Hiba SHAKI

    I bought already one earlier this year for my nephew and we like it a lot, so I decided t get another one for my niece.The ambiance, the waves sound and the blue light are very relaxing and help the babies to sleep.I recommend this product

  184. E. Greve

    My 5 and 3 year olds loved this when we visited a cousin. I ordered before we returned home to their great surprise! There is only one song or the ocean sounds but both are soothing. It helps them relax before they fall asleep. I even use it for my 10 month old. The lights are very bright, but there is a way to adjust on the bottom. This turtle is our good night friend! I recommend rechargeable batteries because everyday use can use up quick (there is about a 20 minute auto shutoff, but it might get played twice in our home). Still worthwhile.

  185. Jeff

    Our baby loves this, the music is super soothing, I wish they made an adult version. My only complaint is that I wish the music played continuously instead of 2o minutes. Or at least had that option.

  186. Mr.Garisson

    I have purchase many items on amazon. This by far is the best one. I have never left a review before but I felt compelled to do so because of the joy this turtle brings to my child. We purchased it for my son’s 3rd birthday and it has never left his side since. He has not been gentle with it either, dropping it multiple times over the years. The stitching in the fabric and the plastic molded shell have stayed perfect through it all! I only wish I would have purchased it when he was a baby, it would have been so helpful during sleep time. I happily promote this product to all my friends and family, and purchase it for all the baby showers I attend. Go buy one ASAP!

  187. RoxySkyy

    We love this for our son (and ourselves). It’s a soothing product that would be great for anybody. It is also a great night light when turning on a light isn’t an option.

  188. hernandez.britney

    This thing is adorable and my toddler loves it.. It makes him fall asleep in his own bed so easily and the sounds and music it makes are very soothing. The only complaint is that you cannot brighten or dim the lights as it says you can but it’s not necessary anyway.. We love it 🙂

  189. Sarah

    We LOVE this turtle! It really helped my 2 year old get over being afraid of the dark, who every night would cry when I would go to leave her room. This saved everyone’s sleep! It is sooo soothing. I have found myself falling asleep to it at bedtime! It plays ocean sounds and music. You can also adjust the brightness and the waves can move or be still. It is also nice when we travel, it helps my daughter adjust to sleeping in a strange place. It turns off automatically after 22 minutes so it will not disrupt your child’s sleep.

  190. Amazon Customer

    OMG!! My kids LOVE this!! I bought my first one from QVC and then came to Amazon for my second one. The water-like light on the ceiling is SO cool and the kids love it. When I’d put my oldest son to bed, I’d tell him it was “turtle time” and then turn it on. His face would light up as soon as I said it. Now my twins are both using one (in each crib). I think the timer amount for the music is long enough and to be able to adjust the light intensity, sound volume, and even “freeze” the wave-like light… it’s nice to have everything adjustable. Can’t really say anything negative about this!!

  191. Grace Han

    Incredible, my favorite Amazon purchase! Not only are the waves very realistic, there are many ways to customize it to your liking. You can adjust the brightness, volume of the sound (or no sound) and lasts a long time with the batteries you put it. Every time this is on, I sleep like a baby without any problems. Yes it shuts off by itself after 23 minutes, but trust me, that’s enough to get you sound asleep without even noticing when it stops.Also, it covers my entire room and the sides of my walls too.I also tried it on my large living room downstairs and again, covered all of that as well.Strongly recommend this product- 5 stars!Plus the turtle is super cute!

  192. VE

    Never met a baby who wasn’t mesmerized by this and there’s quite a few babies in my family. Cute gift and relaxing for any age really. I’ve used it a couple times myself lol. Had this for about three years still works and is in good condition.

  193. Janet

    I purchased this for my niece. In tested the turtle out first. This really relaxed me and put me to sleep hearing the sounds of the ocean. The options available for the lights and sounds are great. Loved this tranquil turtle. The teal blue color is nice for a girls room too.

  194. Keri

    Seriously couldn’t ask for a better sleep aid!I’m an adult and I bought this for myself and my boyfriend and I will never be able to sleep without our Tranquil Turtle!The lights actually make a really realistic underwater appearance. I like that you can turn the motion off if you aren’t feeling too well and don’t want your room spinning. hahaThe wave sounds are really calming. I’m SO glad there’s a volume control for it because sometimes I want it quiet enough for me to fall back asleep in the middle of the night, and sometimes I need it louder so I can drown out the sound of people making themselves breakfast at 5 am.I’ve never used the music, so I’m not even sure how the whole song sounds. Music sort of grabs my focus and won’t let me sleep.This is honestly my best Amazon purchase, this is the lowest price [including shipping] I could find this thing for. It’s $50 at Barnes & Noble [the only store I’ve found it in].Also, if you’re reading reviews and not sure if you should buy it, just search “Tranquil Turtle” on youtube, you can see it in action.

  195. ashandjennashandjenn

    I have been having a very difficult time sleep training our fourth son. He dislikes being left alone, and will scream inconsolably until picked up. That is, until we borrowed tranquil turtle from our neighbor. She heard the prolonged crying and asked if we would like to try her son’s turtle. At this point (hours into the night), I was willing to try anything. I put the turtle into his crib, turned on the light and sounds- and he stopped crying. He turned and looked at the turtle, “talked” to the lights, and then quietly fell asleep. I was so shocked that I immediately ordered one from Amazon- rush delivery. It doesn’t work like magic every night:-) but the lights and sounds calm him so that he doesn’t feel alone and get hysterical. In fact, if he cries it is often because he has turned the buttons off by accident!! The lights are beautiful and soothing to me as well- and the music is a lovely peaceful loop- not annoying or chintzy. I cannot recommend this sleep aide highly enough for babies or toddlers who are anxious and inconsolable at bedtime. The image is what the lights look like on our ceiling- just like being inside an aquarium…

  196. J. London

    This is the most amazing thing ever. It’s in my grandsons nursery that has huge vaulted ceilings and I literally makes you feel like you’re under water. The sounds are amazing. Especially the waves and seagulls.

  197. V.

    This turtle is super. The volume is a bit low, especially if it is sat on bedding. I changed the batteries right away, because of the one review, which looks like rust, so I think somebodies kid took the turtle into the bathtub for a swim. Anyway, it is bright and beautiful. Well made. Thick hard shell makes it durable. Soft blue material everywhere else. Power on/off on the bottom of the turtle by the battery compartment. On/off switch ontop (which has a timer. About 20 minutes. Buttons ontop control water motion which can also just be still. The music is very relaxing, which also has slight undertone sounds of seagulls and ocean waves is beautiful. There is an option for wave sounds only. You can adjust the volume, but it still could be louder. Overall this is one of my kids favorite items she has ever received. We own two of the starry night turtles and we love them. We gift those all the time. This is a little pricey, but it really is well worth it!V-

  198. Stiles

    Love love love!!!! So pretty and relaxing. Baby loves it sooo much! Only complaint is that it only stays on for 20 minutes at a time, and no way to change that.

  199. Tammy

    This turtle is so cute! The reflection on the ceiling can be made very bright- you can see it during the day with the lights off. It reminds me of the rippling of a pool, the music is also very soothing.

  200. RD

    I got this for my 5 month old, but my husband and I like it better than he does. It has nice relaxing music and the undulating underwater visual effect it creates is pretty cool and relaxing. I wish they made the exact same thing with stars where the stars moved. However, I must add that they should have made this light in a color other than blue because blue is a color that can disturb sleep and cause sleep deprivation.

  201. jessica

    My first son received this as a gift when he was a baby. Now 3 kids later we have bought problably 5 over the years (my kids are rough on things). My kids won’t sleep without it! I love that it runs for 15 minutes and not 5 like most. It’s so pleasant and soothing. My only gripe is I wish there was an option to plug in. For the price you would think there would be as we do have to change the batteries every 2 weeks (x3) since we use it so much

  202. Sheena Harvey

    This is the best thing ever. It is the only thing that calmed my baby down on several occasions. She is 10 months old now and still loves it. She will put her face up to it and hug it and stare at it lol. The batteries died again last night they’ve died about 3 times since owning it since she was born. I recommend every parent get this. The song and the ocean sounds are wonderful and soothing and it emits beautiful calming ocean waves around the room. It is a must for traveling! Make sure you always have backup batteries on hand 😉

  203. Navem

    I purchased the original Twilight Turtle for my kids and they loved it. I was amazed at how well the stars showed up, and decided to check out this guy. I read through the reviews and was amazed to see that even adults were using him. So I ordered. I LOVE this turtle. I originally bought for my kids. But I actually use him in my room. The underwater wave motion that it projects all over the walls and ceiling are so soothing and I LOVE the music combined with the real sounds of the ocean and seagulls. It is so soothing. I have a 2 week old and it helps to calm her at night and I swear she sleeps longer while it is on. The only draw back is that it does have a self timer and shuts itself off after a certain amount of time. But a quick hit of the button and he comes back to life. I live by the Atlantic Ocean, and this is just as realistic sounding as the real thing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  204. Auz

    I gave my wife so much grief about spending so much on this thing and was planning on giving it one star. However, it is mesmerizing and distracts the baby, me, the dogs, etc so that we fall asleep fast.Recent studies have shown that blue light actually wakes you up, so red is better… unfortunately it doesn’t’ come in red.

  205. SASA

    Great for bedtimetime. Can listen to ocean or relaxing melody before bed. Cuts out every 23minutes which is cool. Times kid to go to sleep in a certain amount of time.

  206. ANN

    my baby loves it, it helped a lot , now he can fall a sleep on his ownits really bright and you can controlei just really heat the melody

  207. Eugenia

    Best thing ever to put a baby and yourself to sleep. Swear by this thing. Seller delivered promptly and in excellent condition.

  208. Awakekate

    We bought this for our son and we absolutely love it! It’s adorable and soothing for our new born plus helps all of us sleep. Highly recommended!

  209. K P-t

    I wish i had it as soon as my baby was born. We all love it! My mom stayed over and loved it too. I am getting one for her for sure!Music – beautiful, volume of the sound – just right, light – superb imitation of water, feel and quality – very well made!

  210. Rosemarie Cruz

    This is a small turtle but let me tell you the light it puts out is amazing!!! My daughter loves it !!! I love it too. it is sooo soothing and feels like your sleeping on the Hawaiian beaches!! Recommend to anyone that is scared of the dark and want something beautiful!

blue star

Our first product to combine both sight and sound features, Tranquil Turtle will transform your child’s room into a peaceful oasis. The light projector creates a serene underwater effect – complete with softly undulating waves – while the sound machine unit offers two calming choices: a gentle melody or whispering waves. Winner of Infant Toy of the Year Award and the National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, Tranquil Turtle is a great solution for kids who are afraid of the dark.

Artful and Soothing

Despite its dozy demeanor, Tranquil Turtle is actually working double-time. To help your little one fall asleep, Tranquil Turtle plays one of two soothing sounds (a proven way to encourage sleep). And as many parents know, imaginations can run wild in the night and sometimes be scary for children. Tranquil Turtle projects an underwater effect, lighting the way to a more comforting and restful sleep.

Parent-Friendly Operation

Plush and soft, with a sturdy plastic shell, this sound machine nightlight is best placed on the floor in the center of the room where it projects a soothing ocean onto the ceiling and walls. Simply pressing the button on the turtle’s shell ignites the ocean and keeps them glowing for a full 23 minutes–just enough time for most children to drift into sleep. At this point, the Twilight Turtle automatically shuts off to preserve battery life and allow your child to slip into deepest slumber. Another push of the button reactivates the projection if needed.

Makes a Great Gift

A great gift for children who are afraid of the dark, or even adults who have trouble falling asleep. Perhaps the best thing about this plush pal is it becomes a favorite bedtime buddy for years and years to come – truly a gift that keeps on giving!

In fact, if he cries it is often because he has turned the buttons off by accident!! The lights are beautiful and soothing to me as well- and the music is a lovely peaceful loop- not annoying or chintzy. I cannot recommend this sleep aide highly enough for babies or toddlers who are anxious and inconsolable at bedtime. The image is what the lights look like on our ceiling- just like being inside an aquarium…

    Seriously couldn’t ask for a better sleep aid!I’m an adult and I bought this for myself and my boyfriend and I will never be able to sleep without our Tranquil Turtle!The lights actually make a really realistic underwater appearance. I like that you can turn the motion off if you aren’t feeling too well and don’t want your room spinning. hahaThe wave sounds are really calming. I’m SO glad there’s a volume control for it because sometimes I want it quiet enough for me to fall back asleep in the middle of the night, and sometimes I need it louder so I can drown out the sound of people making themselves breakfast at 5 am.I’ve never used the music, so I’m not even sure how the whole song sounds. Music sort of grabs my focus and won’t let me sleep.This is honestly my best Amazon purchase, this is the lowest price [including shipping] I could find this thing for. It’s $50 at Barnes & Noble [the only store I’ve found it in].Also, if you’re reading reviews and not sure if you should buy it, just search “Tranquil Turtle” on youtube, you can see it in action.

  18. Janet

    I purchased this for my niece. In tested the turtle out first. This really relaxed me and put me to sleep hearing the sounds of the ocean. The options available for the lights and sounds are great. Loved this tranquil turtle. The teal blue color is nice for a girls room too.

  19. VE

    Never met a baby who wasn’t mesmerized by this and there’s quite a few babies in my family. Cute gift and relaxing for any age really. I’ve used it a couple times myself lol. Had this for about three years still works and is in good condition.

  20. Grace Han

    Incredible, my favorite Amazon purchase! Not only are the waves very realistic, there are many ways to customize it to your liking. You can adjust the brightness, volume of the sound (or no sound) and lasts a long time with the batteries you put it. Every time this is on, I sleep like a baby without any problems. Yes it shuts off by itself after 23 minutes, but trust me, that’s enough to get you sound asleep without even noticing when it stops.Also, it covers my entire room and the sides of my walls too.I also tried it on my large living room downstairs and again, covered all of that as well.Strongly recommend this product- 5 stars!Plus the turtle is super cute!

  21. Amazon Customer

    OMG!! My kids LOVE this!! I bought my first one from QVC and then came to Amazon for my second one. The water-like light on the ceiling is SO cool and the kids love it. When I’d put my oldest son to bed, I’d tell him it was “turtle time” and then turn it on. His face would light up as soon as I said it. Now my twins are both using one (in each crib). I think the timer amount for the music is long enough and to be able to adjust the light intensity, sound volume, and even “freeze” the wave-like light… it’s nice to have everything adjustable. Can’t really say anything negative about this!!

  22. Sarah

    We LOVE this turtle! It really helped my 2 year old get over being afraid of the dark, who every night would cry when I would go to leave her room. This saved everyone’s sleep! It is sooo soothing. I have found myself falling asleep to it at bedtime! It plays ocean sounds and music. You can also adjust the brightness and the waves can move or be still. It is also nice when we travel, it helps my daughter adjust to sleeping in a strange place. It turns off automatically after 22 minutes so it will not disrupt your child’s sleep.

  23. hernandez.britney

    This thing is adorable and my toddler loves it.. It makes him fall asleep in his own bed so easily and the sounds and music it makes are very soothing. The only complaint is that you cannot brighten or dim the lights as it says you can but it’s not necessary anyway.. We love it 🙂

  24. RoxySkyy

    We love this for our son (and ourselves). It’s a soothing product that would be great for anybody. It is also a great night light when turning on a light isn’t an option.

  25. Mr.Garisson

    I have purchase many items on amazon. This by far is the best one. I have never left a review before but I felt compelled to do so because of the joy this turtle brings to my child. We purchased it for my son’s 3rd birthday and it has never left his side since. He has not been gentle with it either, dropping it multiple times over the years. The stitching in the fabric and the plastic molded shell have stayed perfect through it all! I only wish I would have purchased it when he was a baby, it would have been so helpful during sleep time. I happily promote this product to all my friends and family, and purchase it for all the baby showers I attend. Go buy one ASAP!

  26. Jeff

    Our baby loves this, the music is super soothing, I wish they made an adult version. My only complaint is that I wish the music played continuously instead of 2o minutes. Or at least had that option.

  27. E. Greve

    My 5 and 3 year olds loved this when we visited a cousin. I ordered before we returned home to their great surprise! There is only one song or the ocean sounds but both are soothing. It helps them relax before they fall asleep. I even use it for my 10 month old. The lights are very bright, but there is a way to adjust on the bottom. This turtle is our good night friend! I recommend rechargeable batteries because everyday use can use up quick (there is about a 20 minute auto shutoff, but it might get played twice in our home). Still worthwhile.

  28. Hiba SHAKI

    I bought already one earlier this year for my nephew and we like it a lot, so I decided t get another one for my niece.The ambiance, the waves sound and the blue light are very relaxing and help the babies to sleep.I recommend this product

  29. Amazon Customer

    Gentle lights, motion and soothing ocean waves. For my autistic 7 year old grandson who doesn’t like to sleep in a dark room. Helps him calm down to sleep. Replaced a previous one we had for a long time.

  30. Erica C.

    Super cute, helps my son to fall asleep and calms him down . Very relaxing and good quality

  31. Neila Barnett

    It’s a little brighter than I imagined it would be but the sound and wave appearance on the wall/ceiling is very fun and relaxing.

  32. Tex

    Bought this for my nephew…….. its the coolest thing since sliced bread! I think his parents enjoy it more than he does! Would totally buy it again.

  33. Ren B

    Just buy it! Amazing on not just the ceiling but the entire room! Baby loves it!

  34. tim curran

    We have two of these. One for each kid. Work great, kids love them, batteries last quite a while. Used every night. Never had any issues. First one is three years old.

  35. COB

    This turtle has been part of my son’s bedtime ritual since he was 4-months old. We love the soft blue swirling light it emits, magically transforming the room into an undulating underwater world. The gentle music helps soothe him to sleep. Unlike some other toys with annoying, electronic sounding music, this one is subtle. I also appreciate that it automatically switches off after 30 minutes.

  36. Margo

    I Lovelovelove this guy! It’s such a pretty view on the ceiling that I often use it in MY room! I like that there’s volume control and music or sea sounds to choose from. My child uses it to sleep every night. It’s very soothing.

  37. B Goentzel

    We bought our first one about 4 years ago and has worked great, just needed batteries changed. So it was time to buy another one. My daughter doesn’t sleep without it. So soothing.

  38. ZOeH

    I am very pleased with this purchase. Works really well to calm my new born

  39. Jenn

    Best thing ever. My nephew had one and loved it. I ended up getting one for myself i enjoyed it so much. Then for fathers day I ended up getting one for my dad because he liked my nephews so much. This seems perfect for anyone who enjoys the sound of the ocean and likes the look of the water.

  40. leapinlambchop

    This turtle reminds me of going to this aquarium we love. It has a very soothing music, and the light display is also very calming. My 1.5 year old loves it, he points to it so he can turn it on every night. We have had this for about 7 months, and we use it every night. We have gone through a lot of batteries, but it does play for about 20 minutes each time, so that makes sense. You might want to invest in 2 sets of good rechargeable batteries. That’s my only advice, other than that, we love this and more importantly so does our son.I just wanted to update this review because we have now owned this turtle since 2013 and my son who is now 7, seriously still uses it every night. Honestly can’t believe it is still working. It really is a very calming light and music is very soothing. Definitely recommend!!!

  41. Gioco

    I love this turtle, my husband and I use it to sleep now, and we will use it when baby comes. I like the soothing lights that move like waves and the white noise. It’s nice to be able to pick between white noise of waves or a small instrumental song and it doesn’t take that much battery time.I actually though it would be slightly bigger though, for some reason that is what I imagined for the price, but I am still happy with it because our baby will be able to hug it if he wanted.

  42. misssarah

    I wish we had found this sooner! My 4 year old has trouble relaxing and falling asleep at night. He has never bonded to a stuffed toy. we both look forward to bed and nap time now, so that we can spend time with Tranquil Turtle! I had intended to buy the ruglar turtle star version, but saw this and was intrigued. I love how the waves move on the ceiling–really hold attention. and the music and ocean sounds are wonderful.

  43. Baby yoda

    Best night light I’ve ever purchased. Has two sound recordings, the ocean waves crashing and a relaxing tune with ocean sounds in the background. Projects waves on the ceiling and walls. Has a button to make the waves stationary though and has a brightness adjuster. Would buy this again

  44. R.M

    I love it .i really didn’t think i will need it a lot . but it is amazing and a life saver .i mean i was never able to find a soothing lullaby for my baby to go to sleep .but this one have the perfect soothing lightning plus the most relaxing nature sounds for you and your baby .it is a must in our sleep routine .my only regret is that i got it after 6months for my baby .oh all the sleepless nights it could have saved earlier . but better late than never .

  45. Momof4

    My daughter loves this turtle. We also have the cloud B ladybug that projects the stars on the ceiling which is nice but this turtle is way better. I love the way it looks like there is water moving around the ceiling and with the sound of the ocean waves and seagulls with the soft music you close your eyes while listening to this and you really feel like your at the ocean. So relaxing and puts you right to sleep. Would buy again. This turtle would make a great baby shower gift.

  46. Morgen McDowell

    This was one of the smartest things I got my baby. Really the first reason I got it is because it seemed cool and like enough light to breastfeed by, which is true, but my son is now two and lives for this little dude at night. It’s not a huge battery hog (idk if my son abuses the lights as much as he could, but it’s usually every 2nd month) It’s amazing. If you buy one and the kid likes it, my philosophy is to buy a second one so if something happens to the first one, you can have a way to get stuff back to normal without having a meltdown at 3am. And if your kid ends up hating it, you can always use it yourself, it’s incredibly soothing and the music isn’t so shrill that its unpleasant for adults. It’s really subtle.

  47. Colleen

    Bought this for my 6 month old daughter to help her sleep. She was having trouble staying asleep after laying her in crib, and this adorable, soothing turtle helps! Soothing waves and light motion is so nice. A little over priced, but I think it helps. I play it for every nap and at bedtime. Timer is just enough to lull her to sleep. I think the motion scares her a bit at this point, so I turn it off, which is another nice option. Volume and brightness controls are wonderful features as well. Would definately reccommend this little guy!

  48. m.hair

    This is the 3rd one of these I have purchased. I have 1 for each of my 3 boys. I bought the 1st one 4 years ago and it is still going strong. The batteries last a month or 2, depending on how often they get turned on each night. You can control how bright the light is, how loud it plays (ocean noises or a lullaby), it will run just the light without the music but not music without light, and it runs for about 20 min before switching off automatically. We have sleep trained each boy with one and by the time they are weaned (breastfed) they go to sleep in their own bed in their own room and stay there every night and at nap time. If they wake up in the middle of the night they turn their turtle on and go back to sleep without ever getting up.

  49. Anetora

    love this little turtle. we were looking for a nightlight that was soothing for our 6 week old baby. he would sleep in his crib alone during the day but was terrified during the night. this kept him calm and after 2 weeks he sleeps in his crib at night . wish this came with a remote control.

  50. MRaws

    This turtle is a remarkable calming device for the child who has a difficult time transitioning to sleep. I use it with my grandson and wish I had for his Dad when he was little!

  51. twin mom

    I got this for my autistic son after seeing it posted on a Facebook page as a recommended gift for kids with sensory issues. He LOVES it and so do I! It is very soothing for him! The music is classical and there is a volume control. You can also control the brightness of the light and you can turn the waves on or off. I highly recommend this for autistic kids! Well worth the money!

  52. Maria F. Kesel

    Gives my daughter comfort at night time. The music and light are soothing. Simple functions and mama gets extra time to herself before bed. Slow shipping even with prime but not important to me.

  53. D. J.

    We purchase the tranquil turtle every time we greet a “new” grandchild. This has been a wonderful addition to the baby’s nursery. As long as our kids have kids of their own, we will continue buying.

  54. Peggy Woods

    This was a gift for my daughter-in-law who is expecting her first child. The baby hasn’t arrived, yet, but I am sure that this will be a great hit. All the reviews I read talked about how soothing the waves of light and the sounds were. I’m sure it will come in handy in the baby’s nursery. My only complaint is that the tranquil frog is available from several vendors at over 35% less than the turtle was. Unfortunately, my daughter-in-law is turtle crazy, so I couldn’t see buying the frog, even though it was much less expensive.

  55. Marine Black

    This is the absolute best purchase I’ve ever done! I use it to help my baby to go to sleep at night as well as a light for nocturne feedings. It’s really cute and soft, and sooo relaxing, even for us as adults! Buy it! This became my to go gift for my friends’s kids

  56. Crow

    Second one we have purchased! Our first kid has used it every day/night for a couple of years. The second kid just got upgraded to this. Make sure you use long lasting batteries!

  57. lugar kane

    Was a gift they liked it a lot

  58. M. Lin

    Bought it for a little girl’s 2 year old birthday, she loves it! The lights are bright and the music is soothing. Very soft and cuddly.

  59. bonnylene

    My kids absolutely love falling asleep to this. Would be awesome if it was rechargeable.

  60. Amanda B.

    My friend had a baby and had one of these in her nursery. After helping put her daughter down twice I couldn’t help but buy this for myself- I’m 29. The lights remind me of a pool at night and the music is soothing with the sounds of the ocean in the background. If you don’t like the music you can turn that on and just keep the ocean sounds or have no sound at all. When my other friend had her baby I gave mine to her, and she loves it.

  61. JohnJohn

    The media could not be loaded.

     I purchased this little guy for my three month old who has been having difficulty falling asleep. Although it didn’t quite get her to snooze, she loves and is completely mesmerized by the soothing light and sounds. I feel that this is a toy that she’ll appreciate more as a toddler rather than a three month old. It’s really cute and lightweight.

  62. Wendy Levins

    This little guy is just perfect. We have bought a lot of baby products since our son was born over 5 months ago, and this is one of the few items that we were so happy we purchased. It is a well thought out design and has every option you think it should have. We use it every time we put our son to bed- it has become his sleep cue and the music and image lulls him to sleep. Don’t hesitate and buy this guy- you won’t regret it!

  63. Short One

    The turtle is very cute. Gave this as a present and my niece loved it! it does create a light show on the ceiling that looks like you are 10 feet deep and looking up to the surface of the water. And the ocean sounds are very relaxing. Worth the purchase.

  64. G.H.

    This is our second one – our now four year old falls asleep to this every night. I brought it with us last year on vacation and it put me to sleep too! Wish it didn’t cost quite so much but I love it – great product!

  65. Colonial Girl

    I have purchased the “Tranquil Turtle” for 2 different baby showers. The first baby is now 4 years old and his brother is 2 years old. They won’t go to bed without it! The parents were asked what their favorite gift was outside of their registry gifts….it was unanimous…Tranquil Turtle! I just purchased the second for a yet to be born baby….my friend, the baby’s grandmother, said the first thing the “to be” parents did when they got home was to open “Tranquil Turtle” to check it out….they are both already in love with it. Needless to say, Tranquil Turtle will be my “signature gift” for any future babies! Quality made product…and it does create a very tranquil atmosphere. Oh, forgot to mention…. I bought one for myself too!

  66. E. Homar

    Fantastic product! We have been using it for about 2 weeks, and baby seems to enjoy it. The sounds are soothing and the whole ceiling is awash in color. Baby sleeps in our room, and neither mom nor dad are kept awake by the sounds or lights. Okay, so mom and dad actually like it too. The gentle movement and soft sounds are quite relaxing!

  67. Mentatassasin

    I love this turtle, I purchase done for my daughter about 6 years ago and while it still played and lit up the oscillating plastic disc stopped working so I ordered a new one although these are pretty pricey to be honest. I gave it five stars even though the most recent one was broken when it arrived based on the experience I had prior…everyone has manufacturing difficulties and I have a friend who is a therapist that actually uses these in their sessions and it works great on not only kids but adults as well. I highly recommend this product but wish I could have found one in purple.

  68. Kayla Cummings

    We’ve had this turtle for almost 3 years now and it still works like a charm, despite the rough play of two boys. Bought it when my son was 2yrs old to help him sleep and it quickly became a necessity for bedtime! It helped him to stay in bed and fall asleep on his own. Even after 3 years, he still loves to fall asleep to the soothing music and lights. I don’t regret spending $50 on this little light one bit!

  69. Jackie Oh

    I was exited to get this turtle. I thought the idea of water reflected on the ceiling would soothe our baby when he was put down to sleep. We have had this for awhile now and he uses it as his nightlight when he goes to bed. It still works great after being used daily. Fast shipping by the seller.

  70. Susie Callahan

    This has been life saving for my first daughter and now my second daughter. I don’t know what I’ll do when it doesn’t work anymore. The song is soft and soothing the lights on the ceiling mimic the waves and almost hypnotize you! It’s amazing!!

  71. Jennifer S. Orin

    We are giving this product as a gift in the near future. At this point we don’t know how it will help the child. The child we are giving it to is autistic and we are hoping it helps with anxiety.

  72. Marti S

    It is soothing, I love the “waves” moving on the ceiling and hearing the ocean… I bought one for myself and my friend who is expecting… I would highly recommend it. It has an automatic timer so it turns it self off after a bit.

  73. S. Rizzo

    I gave this to my grandson, two year old for Christmas. He loves it, it is very soft and the light is perfect. He sleeps with it everynight

  74. gamgam

    Original review: My 7 year old loves this so much.Update: This great nightlight lasted years and stood up to a lot of abuse.

  75. Amanda Duncan

    This is one of my favorite items I’ve purchased for my 2 year old daughter since she was born. We had several white noise machines but this is by far the best. The waves it projects look incredible. I like both sounds it plays but especially love the lullaby with seagulls. It plays just long enough to lull her to sleep. It creates a tranquil, peaceful environment in any room. I wouldn’t mind one for myself! We have used it every night since we bought it over a year ago and my daughter often carries it around the house or snuggles it in bed. My only cons are the price ($60 is steep for a noise machine) and it goes through batteries pretty quickly, but I still recommend it to everyone. I will probably buy another for my son when he is born.

  76. Jessica Hamilton

    My 13 month old loves this turtle! When he wakes up in the middle of the night he turns it on then immediately goes back to sleep. SUCH A LIFESAVER! Not to mention that he loves carrying it around the house during the day.My husband actually wants one of these as well! It’s super relaxing

  77. js

    Does what it says. very calming with nice ocean lighting effects on the ceiling. Thinking about getting one for the parents room!

  78. Terrence Davis

    WONDERFUL!!! This little turtle is sooooo soothing and relaxing! So cool for anyone! I bought two, one for my one year old grandson and one for my 16 year old daughter. They love this turtle! Worth the money!

  79. Emily

    Beautiful music, water sounds, and it makes the entire room light up like you’re at the waterside. It has lots of options so you can decide what you want playing or it can get silent and just play the lights in the room. We have white walls and it puts my baby to sleep in a few minutes. I just sit there and feel like I’m at a spa. It’s so relaxing and I’ll admit it, I fall asleep to it also. It has a timer so that it shuts off In 16-18 minutes, I forgot. We love our turtle. My mother wants one for her room too.

  80. CChampagne

    My kids love this turtle. I have a 6.5 year old and a 2 month old. My 6 year old kept it in his room to “test” it before my daughter arrived. Now, I keep it in my daughters crib and use it almost every night to help sooth her to sleep and it works perfectly. I would recommend this turtle to anyone with small kids. The age range can span for years, making it the perfect gift or toy that kids will not quickly outgrow. (Which makes it worth the price.)

  81. Krissy D

    Grandson loves this.

  82. Bad Irene

    The light effect is absolutely hypnotic. Coupled with either the sound of waves crashing or the peaceful music, it’s a tranquilizer. My son wasn’t into this thing at 12 months old, but now at 18 months it’s a silver bullet for ending bedtime meltdowns. Literally, he will instantly go from a full-blown screaming meltdown to entrancement as soon as this toy turns on.Only con would be battery life–It tends to go though batteries faster than I expected it to.

  83. JoelJoel

    Exactly what I was looking for! This works wonderful as a sensory light for my ASD kid.I loved it so much I just purchased another in the other color, so cute and worth the price!

  84. Troy

    I would totally buy again for another baby or even as a gift to a baby shower. This thing has made some long nights a little easier with my baby. Sometimes it seems like my 2 month old was just fighting sleep and needed something to lull him to sleep. This turtle is great. It put me to sleep as well. The soothing ocean waves and water reflecting lights are awesome!

  85. Nicky

    We bought these as an upgrade to the fisher price sea horses. My twins are 2.5 and needed something longer and more appealing. We love these. Small and easily transported.

  86. Loretta K. Smith

    Baby loves staring at the waves on the ceiling.

  87. Fitfirefighter

    I can easily say this is our #1 baby item! Its my go to gift for baby showers and every mom I’ve given one to is amazed at how handy they are!We got this when my daughter was about 15 months because she was having trouble settling down at bedtime and thought this might help. I’d seen the constellation turtles before and wasn’t impressed so for almost $50 this was a shot in the dark. She was instantly in love! She is 2 now we own two tranquil turtles because most days this turtle goes everywhere with her and I just can’t risk being without it at bedtime! Get one you will not regret it! 🙂

  88. Felicity Gillespie

    Our son was soo fussy from being overtired and/or gas. I watch him while he drifts off to sleep listening and naps on his tummy with the ocean sound. He is so peaceful, I can sit here and type this or read a book without him crying. I would definitely recommend it as a great source for ambient noise and soothing lights. It shuts off after a while but he is usually asleep by then.I would recommend it to others and will be buying it for my friends with babies at their showers.

  89. Sarah AntczakSarah Antczak

    We absoluty love this thing. My LO is 2, she’s a rough sleeper. Sometimes it takes over an hour for her to fall asleep. We’ve tried numerous white noise machines/lullabye music and nothing has seemed to help. This little guy can project waves on the ceiling and walls, they can either sway or be stationary. You can choose between waves breaking or a soothing melody with waves and seagulls. The only downside I see, is the light has to be on to play the music. Outside of that it is perfect! The music cycles for 20ish minutes, we’ve only had to replay it twice since using it. We love it so much we’re thinking of buying another for our room. It’s put us to sleep listening to it through her monitor. Worth every penny.

  90. Elena Pape

    I absolutely LOVE this turtle. Everything is adjustable (volume, music, motion) and it’s durable. We were taking my 22 month old granddaughter for a week. We live 3 hrs away and we only see her every couple of months. Her parents work hard and odd hours and she has a changing bedtime routine. I bought this turtle to help with settling her down and getting her on a set routine at bedtime. It worked great! In fact, I am a very busy person and have trouble falling asleep because of a racing mind. It helped me too! After my granddaughter was ready for bed I’d read her a few books (ie, Good Night Moon) and once she was settled I’d turn on turtle and lay next to her until she fell asleep (took about 2 min. with this turtle). I fell asleep too a couple of times! This turtle is amazing. I highly recommend this purchase.

  91. holobhAmazon

    Love this sound soother, perfect for parents and baby, only thing I wish was different is if you could have the option to have sound on without the light, the light is pointless during the day and it just drains the battery I make sure to at least turn off the movement to conserve battery life.

  92. chubaka

    The tranquil turtle is a great buy, my girlfriend loves it. the lights and sounds of the ocean are Zen. I have to buy a couple more for friends and family

  93. Amazon Customer

    My lil ones Christmas gift! We call her tortuga because she stretches her lil neck out like a turtle. She has always loved the white noise it helps her sleep and the song and underwater lights soothe her… the blue lights relax me too

  94. Maureen M

    We ordered this when my daughter turned 3 to try to help with her fear of the dark. Her night light was creating shadows that were scaring her so we ordered this. It illuminates her room just enough so that she is not afraid but it is not bright enough to keep her awake. She prefers the music function but the white noise function is also excellent. Highly recommend!

  95. IamDeb

    Every child deserves these turtles. I have 12 grands and everyone under 11 yrs. old has a turle night light. They have green, blue, and purple. Oh, my nieces have one too.

  96. nancenance

    I love love love this Turtle. My daughter has never had a problem taking a nap but she falls asleep faster when there is some sort of white noise. This works perfect and she was just in awe the first time i turned the lights. It was the best feeling ever watching her enjoy her tranquil turtle.

  97. rmarinea

    This thing is memorizing! The wave action can move or be still, the light can be made brighter or dimmer, and the sound can be silent, wave sounds, or a soft lulling music. The light from the turtle is enough that it can cover the ceiling of a fairly large bedroom. It automatically shuts off after about 20 minutes. My baby loves this thing. We have to make the turtle “sing” every night at bedtime. I only have 2 complaints:1. I wish the sound and lights would slowly become quieter and dimmer instead of just turning off at the 20 minute mark.2. Yes – a minor complaint but…The music is on a loop which is fine. But each loop is only about 20 seconds. After you listened to this thing for the 16 millionth time you really to wish that the loop was just a bit longer melody wise.

  98. sanddollars

    I absolutely loved this! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is trying to put their children to sleep. I’m expecting and I’m due next month. I bought this for my baby as well as the regular starry night turtle. If you purchase both together and use them both at the same time they look really nice on the ceiling. Stars and the ocean! I’m about to try this on myself when going to sleep since I have difficulty sleeping myself. I felt a lot more relaxed when I listened to the little melody that you can play with it.UPDATE: 12/22/2016My kid is almost 4 now. This still works just as it did when I first bought this 3 years ago. She loves this thing and she swears by this going to sleep, even in new environments where she hasn’t slept before. The only problem is that it’s too good that she gets really upset when the batteries start dying out. This is actually really irritating because she’ll wake up in the middle of the night bawling her eyes out BEGGING to have us replace the batteries. Thank goodness that the ones we use are rechargeable 3x AA batteries so we usually have an extra set handy just in case. Last night my husband just about had enough because she now started complaining that the wave thing stopped moving (she didn’t press the ‘move’ button) and she cried so hard about it at 3 am. Again, it’s too good that she has first world problems with this thing and he wants to throw it out so she can stop depending on it. I really wish they had a plug-in version of this and this will solve all of our parental sleeping problems.

    I bought this out of desperation, as most people probably do that spend almost $50 on a stuffed turtle and rushed Saturday delivery. I needed sleep. I needed my 9 month old to sleep. We were going out of town and I figured his number of night wakings would get worse with him getting over tired and getting only car naps for a day as we travelled. I was willing to give Tranquil Turtle a shot. After one of the worst car trips I’ve ever had with my kids, we got in really late and I was not hopeful that my little guy would get to sleep at all after some car sleep and then being up playing in a new place at 11pm. Go through a modified bedtime routine, read some stories and place little guy in the pack and play, turn on the turtle and leave the room. He talked a little, he babbled, he got quiet. I couldn’t tell if he was asleep so I went up to spy and he was sitting up admiring the lovely under water effect the turtle creates in a dark room. I then watched him flop over on his side, raise an arm in the air to wave at the “waves” (I guess in surrender) and by the time I got back downstairs he was asleep. NO CRYING. We’ve been using the turtle for naps and bedtime for two full days and there have been no long drawn out battles. he just lays there and goes to sleep at some point. Even in the middle of the night if he wakes, turning the turtle back on does the trick. I figure he’ll get the button pushing down soon enough. This turtle is magic. I am curious to see if the novelty wears off or if it still has the same effect at home when we are done with our trip. I am really excited to use it in our camper as it’s difficult for him to get settled there due to the openness of his bed there and general busier sleeping area. I will update the review when we try it out. I am really really pleased so far with the turtle. The sounds are not too loud and optional. You can make the light move to make a wave like effect or be still. Some people complained that it only stays on for 23 minutes but I think it works out OK as it usually takes LOs 15 to 20 minutes to get to sleep – I think if it went on longer than that it might be a distraction. I suspect my guy is lulled in to this sleepy state as he watches the light show and if still awake when it stops he just nods off to dreamland. So glad I bought it.

    We bought this for a newborn on the way, and it works great. If I can remember, I’ll try to leave feedback on how the baby likes it. At the very least the wife and I like it.

  101. Dustin P.

    This helped my son go to sleep when he was a newborn for a little while until he lost interest in it. I’ll be honest I’m tempted to use it in my bedroom because of how relaxing the ocean sound and the “waves” that are projected on the ceiling.

  102. Alvaro

    I needed a second one of the blue turtle night lights. This is because they are very versatile and great. Providing good lighting, soothing music, (and my favorite) waves from the ocean.

  103. Amazon Customer

    Love this turtle my grandchildren have a tough time getting to sleep, and I tell you this is so nice I it put me to sleep also, so glad I got it.

  104. M. Lera

    I somehow only thought about getting this turtle when my daughter turned 19 months and OMG what was I thinking before!? Best product ever. Incredibly soothing, my little one falls asleep right away and wakes up the next morning very happy. It is so relaxing that putting her to sleep doesn’t feel like such a chore anymore. Please do yourself a favor and get one!

  105. Katherine P.

    I love the Tranquil Turtle! Very cute face in a very nice blue color. I was skeptical that the light effects would really show on the ceiling but it really makes you feel as if you’re underwater. I like the water sounds as well as the soft soothing melody and I like that you can change the brightness of the light as well.

    Our 2 year old little boy Slade loves his “Turdy”He won’t go to bed without it. It has stood up to his abuse as well. This is the Mercedes-Benz of “pillow pets”

  107. The Youngs

    We already have the sleep sheep for my daughter so when we needed something for my son, we wanted something different. The lighted shell is a very cute effect. I would recommend this product to anyone!

  108. mnm1017

    We love falling asleep to this lil guy. Our niece had one for her 2 year old to help her fall asleep. We got one for ourselves and when a friend registered for one, we knew from personal experience lol that they would love it, too.

  109. A. Baker

    This may be the beast purchase I have made floor my daughter, my husband and my peace of mind.We had a surprise pregnancy right after the birth of our first daughter. Then my father in law passed away unexpectedly. Our daughter wasn’t even a year old and began sleeping by my husband’s side as he worked through the loss of his father. I them went into early labor and had to be hospitalized so my daughter went and stayed at my parents, who hardly sleep at night. At this point my daughter began having a horrible time sleeping at night. She would nap a little during the day, but she cried all night long. My husband could not stand the sound of our little girl’s heartache and he insisted on holding her all night. Making work the next day very difficult, and in his field, dangerous.Searching for an answer I stumbled across the tranquil turtle. The price scared me but, after reading the reviews, I had to give it a try. I am so glad I did. The first night my daughter only whimpered a few times when the timer ran out. We did this three times and she was asleep. Asleep! Finally! The next night we turned on the turtle once and she did not wake up until the next morning at sunrise.This item is worth it. If you are having trouble with your little one going to bed at night, I strongly suggest the Cloud B Tranquil Turtle.

  110. Panadda

    Best 50 bucks we’ve ever spent! For minths pur baby wouldnt go to sleep without one of us rocking him. But since we purchase this he has fallen asleep all by himself!! I feel better about when its time to transition him to his own room! Only thing is i wish you the music and light would last longer!

  111. Fitzgerald

    Our baby gets anxious when sleeping – keeps moving her hairs, touching her hair and making noises. The music and lights from tranquil turtle entertain and relax her enough for her to fall asleep. It works like a charm for our baby.

  112. Kindle Customer

    I got this as a nightlight/soothing machine for my newborn, but I think I like it more than her! It gives off enough light to be able to see her, but the light is a soothing blue glow from the wave pattern. It reminds me of being in an aquarium in one of those walk through tunnels. The wave crashing sound is realistic and very calming. We use it every night at bedtime for our 6 week old. She has started definitely watching the patterns on the ceiling as she falls asleep. Great product for babies and parents!

  113. Diane Peyton

    So very cute. Like this.

  114. RustyTX55

    Kids live it and easy for a 2 year old to operate.

  115. Jules

    One of the best baby products out there. My husband and I have been desperately searching for a product to help our son fall asleep and stay asleep. I just received it in the mail and tested it out immediately for his afternoon nap. WOW. Just wow. He fell asleep for the first time on his own and is still asleep! No rocking, no baby carrier, no bottle, and most importantly no tears! He fell asleep on his own while watching and listening to the waves.Thank you Cloud B for making the Tranquil Turtle. I’ll be sure to buy this for every baby shower now!

  116. Lutfia San

    It was too bright for an infant who likes to put everything in her mouth, including this turtle’s shell. So I took it back and love it as long as it is placed below my bed where the brightness from its shell is not in my line of sight.

  117. Snoopy

    Have now purchased two of these turtles and my little niece and nephew love them. My niece would not go to sleep at night and this turtle has now become part of her bedtime routine. She now looks forward to bedtime and falls asleep listening to the sounds of the ocean.

  118. MW

    I bought this as a gift for my nephew, but after I turned it on to show him, I wanted one for myself! I was afraid the light would be really weak and not really cover much of the ceiling, but this thing delivers. It’s really cool.

  119. Ashley B

    My son absolutely loves this. I turn it on set him in the crib and he drifts off. I love how you can adjust the brightness of the turtle light. The sound of the ocean is very soothing. It is a wonderful item!!!

  120. Kindle Customer

    My husband thought I was crazy for buying this, but after seeing how it soothes our little guy to sleep it’s worth every penny. It’s part of our bedtime routine.

  121. Lucey Brown

    I love the tranquil turtle. I recently bought 2 of them one for my 8yr and one for my 3yr old. My 8yr was having aggression problems and after a week w/turtle he has mellowed out. 3yr old has active imagination right away said mom look at that shark… even my hubby takes hot showers with turtles so he can relax***

  122. Dmitri Popov

    Great help for parents! Babies fall asleep much quicker and enjoy their time doing so! There are other models and colors, but after a research we found this particular Aqua Turtle model to be the best available!!! Too bad Cloud B is not producing more of them. Even more strange that there is literally NOTHING better on the market… what are producers thinking??

  123. Angie

    We LOVE this turtle! We’ve made it part of the bed time routine for our 5 month old, and I swear my husband falls asleep faster than our son if he’s in the room because it’s so soothing:) I turn off the other lights and turn on this turtle during our bed time nursing session. It calms us both and makes bed time more enjoyable for me. The sounds are very calming and the moving waves of blue light are relaxing to watch. The shutoff timer is the right length for us and the volume settings are good, too. I think as our son gets older he’ll like it even more.

  124. May R.

    Just purchased this item for my 19-month-old daughter. She was mesmerized by the underwater effect projected onto her nursery ceiling and the soothing ocean wave sound. Needless to say, she fell asleep in half the time. Highly recommended!

  125. Beth Hinton

    I have 4 kids under 6 and we love these. We are currently on our second one in 6 years. The first one lasted 5 years until my 2 year old spilled water over the buttons and it stopped working after that. Otherwise it was very durable. When our first one got damaged and we had to get rid of it I really dreaded spending the money on one again so I bought a couple of cheaper ones hoping that they would suffice… and while they are OK… they can’t compare to this specific night soother. The music is SO soothing and sweet sounding and it goes with the moving ocean waves really well (it does also play just ocean waves but we prefer the music). It has lulled all of my kids to sleep when they were babies (and the new one we just bought currently lulls our newest baby) the moving wave light and the music blend is just beautiful. No joke. I spent money on a few cheaper versions and they just don’t soothe a baby like this one. The only downside is you can’t recharge them or plug them in… but at least my baby goes right to sleep! Sanity saver at night.

  126. Name Witheld

    This is our third one of these. The first is a turtle and is pushing five years, I’ve had to crack it open to lubricate the motion mechanism a few times, but still running strong. The second was the green frog, it lasted 18 months before the light went permanently dim (everything else worked fine). The third was also a turtle and barely lasted four months before the light went permanently dim. On the last one it would also strobe, and just touching the dial for the dimmer would make the light flicker, so I got the idea that they got a bad run of resistors (the dials). After some tinkering it turns out I was right and I fixed the frog and the newer turtle!!!!Before I get into how, a word to the wise, this WILL void any warranty that may or may not exist (the company is pretty bad about warranties). Also, this will permanently disable the dial for the dimmer, it will be on full bright from here on out.Tools needed; A good jewelers screwdriver, a long smooth shank is best (read step 3); soldering iron and a small amount of solder; a wire stripper for very small wires isn’t required, but will help; wire snippers will help but are not requiredStep 1: remove the battery cover and batteriesStep 2: remove the four screws surrounding the battery cover and remove that part (it’s a black plastic cover surrounding the battery compartment, hot glued to the plush, remove slowly and carefully)Step 3: unscrew the 7 screws holding on the translucent shell (this is by far the most difficult step, you’ll have to feel around with finger and screwdriver for the screws, then get the screwdriver as perpendicular as possible without ripping the plush, a non-smooth shank screwdriver WILL get stuffing wrapped around it, I found it best to leave the screws in place unless they came all the way loose)Step 4: remove the shell (use caution, some of the screws may not be fully un-screwed, there is some back and forth required here)Step 5: remove the four screws from the newly exposed blue or green interior plastic (these will be shorter screws, as will all the rest of the screws from this point forward. This looks like it’s several parts, it’s actually just one, one one of mine I had to carefully pry in a number of spots around the plush edge, don’t force it)Step 6: remove the blue or green interior plastic (this may be a bit tricky, it’s flimsy and one of mine was on there quite tight. Use caution and work with it, it may be hot glued down, lots of wires running to this so just flip it upside down and DON’T break or disconnect the wires)Step 7: remove the 3 screws from the small pulley near the head and remove the pulley assembly (just leave the rubber band on it)Step 8: remove the larger pulley (no screws to remove for this, remove the rubber band with it)Step 9: remove the 2 screws with a large flat head holding on the speaker, then remove the speaker (one of mine was hot glued down and I had to cut the glue line then gingerly use the screwdriver in one of the holes to pry it out, again DON’t break or disconnect the wires, just set it as out of the way as possible)Step 10: remove the 2 screws with a large flat head holding in the dial for the dimmer and pull out the dimmerNote there are a couple of ways to do step 11 thru 13, I’ll go over what I did and then give the options afterwardStep 11: snip or carefully work and break one of the two wires connected the dimmer dial (it doesn’t really matter which one)Step 12: strip some additional length out of the wire you just removed (the plastic was soft enough I just used my fingernails)Step 13: solder the loose wire to the wire that is sill connected to the dimmerAlternatively you can get a small length of wire and ‘jumper’ the two wires, or remove both and solder them together.Step 14: Put in the batteries and test your workRe-assembly is the opposite as above, I’ve noted the screw types (there were three different types in mine, longer, shorter and large head). The larger pulley has a small pulley that goes facing up (visible), don’t forget to reconnect the rubber bands, and align the translucent rocker. Best to re-test your work prior to Step 3. Step 3 will again be the most difficult, remember that there are small choking hazards inside of this so GET THAT SHELL SECURED!!! Also keep in mind that the screws are metal and the screw holes are plastic, don’t force the screw.

    Bought one for our infant and he loves it so much I bought another as a backup! It even puts me to sleep as well!

    My ten month old loves her turtle. It projects blue ‘waves’ onto the ceiling and we alternate between the sweet melody and the ocean waves. She goes to sleep within minutes. I highly recommend this toy for your bedtime routine.

  130. T. Johnson

    Perfect for helping little ones rest while going to sleep

  131. Ashley W

    Before purchasing this item either my husband or I would have to lay down with our 3 year old each night until he fell asleep. Most of time what would end up happening is we would fall asleep also. We purchased this turtle for him to use at nap time and night time, he now falls asleep by himself and we no longer have to lay there with him. We call the turtle his protector and he loves it. We have purchased other Cloub B products in the past and love the quality of the products.

  132. Busy Mom

    Gorgeous bright waves on the ceiling….great wave sound and ethereal music options. Matches any sea creature themed nursery. Love it!!!

  133. Analyzer

    The waves of this turtle are very calming and our now 14 month old still loves it even after 3 months of using it. You can adjust the brightness and the sound level which makes nap time that much easier. We use energizer batteries for it and they last about a month of 2-3 uses/day. Great buy

  134. Amazon Customer

    I love that’s it’s tranquil and good quality material.

  135. Alexandra Chavasse

    One of the best products I have ever bought, I have bought one for every one of my grandchildren. I would get one for myself if I wasn’t watching TV.

  136. J. Richard Ludgin

    My Grandson loves this. He has one at his house and now he has one here. Very effective and soothing!

  137. Anika R Duvall

    Love love love this little turtle! I had always been given the “advice” to put my baby down sleepy but awake…HA! It wasn’t until I had the Tranquil Turtle that I actually could lay my son down in his crib and he would calmly fall asleep all on his own. It was a miracle… He loves looking at the lights and the music lulls him right to sleep. I highly recommend this product.

  138. Allison

    My husband and I love this, it’s puts us to sleep. More importantly it helps put our 5 month old to sleep. The “waves” it projects onto the ceiling are mesmerizing. Buy it for everyone in the family.

  139. Sierra Griffith

    Love this! Our newborn was a pretty easy baby, but when she would get fussy and we couldn’t calm her, we would turn down the lights, pop her in her wing and turn on the turtle and it would immediately calm her everytime and put her to sleep. When she was a little older also use to turn it on at bedtime and it would put her right to sleep. Worked great until summer time when her room wasn’t dark enough for it.

  140. Tiffany

    Best for soothing lights and sounds!!! Best sleep machine to cure insomnia too! We have purchased this for everyone we know who has or is soon to have a baby! Everyone loves it.

  141. Pop-Pop

    This excellent tool has been used EVERY night for more than two years. It’s amazingly soothing. The soft blue light projecting on the ceiling is very effective. The sound is good. The batteries last a really long time, and except for the one led that stopped working early on, it has remained in good working order. The kids (now 2 and 4) are so accustomned to it, I’m buying another one JUST IN CASE the original wears out. So far, so good!Update, December, 2016:Still working! One bank of LED’s has gone out, and the sound has gotten a little wonky, But it’s STILL used every night. I gave the replacement I bought to other new parents, and now getting yet another for a new granddaughter.Hopefully the quality has not declined over the years, because this turtle/nightlight has been indispensable!

  142. vinsap

    This one has become my new pet. It’s so cute. The sounds are calming and relaxing, plus great sea water lighting effect. Five stars !

  143. KariR

    Amazing. Works like a charm on our little one who fights bedtime. Highly recommend!

  144. jillian brinser

    We love this turtle! My husband jokes that we should buy one for us since the wave like light and sound/soothing music is so relaxing. Our baby is just starting to see far enough to see the reflections on the ceiling and loves it. The wave sound is very similar to a shushing sound and really helps her fall asleep.

  145. A. Shannon

    I had Twilight Turtle however I saw an in-store demonstration of Tranquil turtle and I had to buy one. I bought one for my 18 month old niece who absolutely loves it. She turns it on every night. I bought one for my dad at Christmas who thought it was also very calming and then I had to buy one for my own son who is about 1 year old.It is hard to describe how great it is but once you see it in person you are going to want one. I just bought one for a co-worker for a baby shower gift and she says it is a hit with all of her kids and that she puts it in her room at night. It is a bit pricey but it has been a crowd pleaser with everyone that has seen and used it. The one I bought for my son is about 8 months old now, used every night and still works great. It is my go-to baby shower and young child gift now.

  146. Amazon Customer

    My son loves this turtle and has used this every night to help him fall asleep. We started using it when he was a newborn and it’s been in his bed ever since. It had lasted us 6 years before we had to replace it. I’m happy to see that they still make it.

  147. margaret hart

    We were coaxing my granddaughter to sleep alone, above all after birth of baby brother but positively. This has been a boon and she loves it. She was afraid of the dark so the magic turtle has solved that problem and she loves the seaside so what better than the waves and dappled light play? A winner

  148. Wonder

    It’s so cute and lovely. One wishes to cuddle it all the time. The light at night time reflect all over the room. It really feels one is underwater. I bought it to give it to my grandchild not yet born.

  149. Tretana

    My son loved the way the shell looks. We’re excited to try it tonight

  150. M. Monroe

    My son was getting up in the night a lot saying it was too dark in his room. Now we turn on tranquil turtle and he goes back to sleep. He’s 5 and I was worried he was too old for this, but it was perfect. He loves the music as well.

  151. DMD

    I was given this little turtle as a gift for my daughter when she was a baby and it was probably the best thing I ever received. The lights and sounds are so beautiful my daughter never minded bedtime because it creates such a calming/relaxing atmosphere for little ones. After 10 years, it finally stopped working and she wanted another one! I loved this so much I have given it to multiple friends for their baby showers and they said the same thing- it’s a lifesaver for bedtime. If you’re struggling with baby’s napping or wondering what to get someone for a gift, this is exactly what you want.

  152. D. Naasz

    We got this for our 9 month old. The color is beautiful, the product is made well, the light motion is soothing and the sounds are peaceful. You can make the “water motion” stay still or move and you can brighten and dim the light. It comes with basic ocean/water sounds or a couple different soft melodies. We prefer the ocean/water sounds…helps put baby to sleep comfortably. The turtle is the perfect size-less than a foot long and about 8 inches wide. He is soft everywhere, but the plastic shell on his back. We have used it every night for at least a couple hours since we received it a few weeks ago and have had no problems and are still using the batteries it came with. I would recommend to friends and plan on getting these as shower gifts.*just a side note – we compared prices and found it cheapest on Amazon from this seller. It was nearly $15 more at a local baby store.

  153. Amazon Customer

    My almost 2 yr old was starting to give us a hard time at bedtime. Even though we had a similar product (the turtle that shines stars onto the ceiling) this one is worth every penny as well. It’s calming sounds and appearance of waves is so calming I fall asleep even faster than my son! lol So glad I splurged.

  154. Nan J

    This item is the bomb for little ones. I said for little ones, but truth be told my 10 year old grandson loves this item too. He said he sleep with the ocean sound every nite. The fact it does have an automatic timer which is fantastic.. Oh it has a soft light that illuminate the ceiling. Wonderful tranquil nite toy for bedtime.

  155. M. Freed

    Even better than expected. The entire ceiling is projected with blue waves and the motion feature that can be turned on and off gently rocks back and forth simulating water. The sound feature can also be turned on and off which is the sound of ocean waves. This is the most awesome thing we got for the nursery, very pleased and worth every penny. I would have expected to find something this cool at Spencer’s gifts.

  156. Sam

    I LOVE this turtle. The light really looks like a swimming pool reflection. The wave sounds are soothing to both baby and parents. Plush part is very soft and has a sweet looking face. Easy to turn on and off and has a 20 minute auto shut off timer. The brightness and volume controls are great for different room conditions. Bed time is smoother and quicker with this little guy.

  157. LeLapin

    Is there some kind of black magic going on with this turtle? I don’t know what it is, but my 2 month old is in love with the tranquil turtle. If she starts fussing or is inconsolable, I just take her into her room, close the blinds, turn out the lights, settle us into her glider and turn on the turtle using the ocean sounds. Within a minute or two max, she is completely blessed out and content, sometimes falling asleep but just often alert and awake but completely calm. It has made the witching hour (you parents know what I mean) so much more tolerable. We are still co-sleeping at this point, so I can’t testify to its magical sleep inducing properties when crib training but I fully anticipate using it extensively when we reach that point. I’ve spoken with several other mothers I know who have balked at this purchase because of the price, but do not hesitate -buy it! Because of this, I am making this my go to baby shower/new baby gift. Totally worth every penny and more.

  158. Daniel J. Bargielski

    Baby loves it! Loves staring at the lights on the ceiling when being put to bed. Does what it’s supposed to.

  159. W. Murphy

    We purchased our turtle as a soothing way to help distract our little guys back to sleep without turning on the ceiling fan (their other favorite distraction), and it worked GREAT! …but then after about two months of use the lights began to dim and within a week they were barely on at all. We changed the batteries, cleaned the contacts, pressed all the buttons… to no avail. If you roll the boringness knob you would occasionally see the lights flicker, but that was it. It hasn’t been dropped or rough-housed, in fact it hasn’t ever left the bedside table where it lives. What a shame to see such an expensive item fail so quickly, especially when it isn’t directly used by the child.We have contacted Cloud B and hopefully they will be able replace our defective unit.UPDATE: After a few days, I was contacted by customer support at Cloud B. Directly underneath the email note where I explained that I changed the batteries twice they recommended that I try changing the batteries… sheesh! Their alternative was that if I was not satisfied with those results (and I was not – it was still not working) then I could send it to them AT MY EXPENSE and that they would look at it and replace it if they found it to be defective. Nearly a MONTH later we received a new unit… no note of apology, no offer to pay for shipping their defective unit, nada. The new unit is much brighter than the previous one, which leads me to believe that Cloud B quality control was lacking when our first unit went out the door. Hopefully this unit lasts more than a couple of months.In the end, there are a number of companies who make similar products and who care about your satisfaction and want your business much more than the folks at Cloud B… This will be our last product from this company.

  160. troublestarr2000

    I bought this for my 3yo son. We had a light/projector/music thing that was starting to make a horrible sound and we needed a replacement. We wanted something to project a soft nightlight, have some movement, and soft music. This item fits the bill. Also, the sound AND the light are adjustable. If your child is excited by bright lights this has a dimmer so you can adjust to fit your needs. We have had to replace the batteries only once in the last 6 months, and he uses every night. My 7yo niece came to visit and she also loved it. I highly reccomend.

  161. Melanie

    My son loves this turtle and sleeps with it every night for more than a year and a half. Batteries do last for some time. I like that it turns it self off after a while. The LED bulb did stop working recently so I purchased a new one. I did feel it was worth it.

  162. Teresa Ramirez

    It’s so cute, and something to calm a new born baby ,first I ordered in blue and when I realize it was going to a baby girl, I change to purple,maybe I din’t do it rigth, and I ended up with the blue…I will like to buy another one, but I can”t find it .

  163. Brittani

    My 21mo is hard to get settled at night and nap. If I direct him to watch the ceiling he will fall asleep while watching and listening to the waves.

  164. Ismaela Swanson

    Bought this for our godson. And he loved it.But when we played it for a trial the soft music and images made me want to sleep with it also.I really recommend it as a baby gift!

  165. Hawk eye

    I stumbled across this item while surfing Amazon, and decided to get it for myself based on other adult user’s reviews. I am in my late 20’s, and have recently been promoted into a lot more responsibilities at work, so it can be hard for me to fall asleep when my mind keeps running. This turtle helps a lot more than I thought.I use this with the ocean sound effects, and it helps me relax. The ocean sounds aren’t of the highest quality, but that isn’t much of a deal, I think quiet, slightly muffled waves sounds encourage relaxation a lot more than loud, booming, crashing waves. As other reviewers have also stated, the water motion display is juddery, but it is suffice for my needs. This is a wonderful sleeping aid, and I wish I had found it earlier in life!

    I bought one of these for grand-nephew. Then, after reading other reviews, decided to get one for myself. It has a timer, 23 min, on it and I have never been awake to hear it turn off. I would recommend for anyone who has difficulty falling asleep.

    I bought this for my toddler who was having a hard time going to sleep at after we had some smoke alarms go off and he became nervous at bed time. Funny thing is it didn’t work like I wanted at the time (I was hoping he would enjoy the lights and sound and stop thinking about being nervous), but now a few months later he loves it. He requests his lullaby turtle music before bed every night. And I love this thing as well. My husband and I have used it in our room a few times as well after our son has fallen asleep. It is so relaxing! I highly recommend it.

    I bought this for by nephew who is on the spectrum. I bought it about 2 years ago. He loves it! He goes into his room every night and turns it on to calm down before bed. His parents thank me for it every chance they get.

    I thought I was purchasing this for my infant grandson. However, when visiting him recently I found that the music was lightly playing and the wave like blue swirls on the ceiling were not for the sleeping baby alone but also for my son and daughter-in-law. They both told me that they LOVE it and that it has helped them sleep as well.

    My son loves it, I purchased it for him when he was 10months old. He quickly figured out how to turn it on and off when he wanted. He never sleeps without it.

    I forgot to take a pic with it in use.. but I absolutely loved it! The light was adjustable, as was the sound on the machine. The turtle lit up the entire ceiling in our master rm and with the sound of the ocean it was so soothing. As an adult, it relaxed me! Almost fell asleep, until the machine automatically turned off, just as it says it does. Love this!

    The media could not be loaded.

     For $46 dollars, you can’t beat it. I looked all over the place for a device like this, but everything was close to or over $100. The light and sound that this soft little turtle delivers is fantastic. My son’s due date is August 20th, so he hasn’t gotten to enjoy it yet – but I’m sure he will love it. I posted this on Facebook today, and many people commented that they wanted one too (and they are adults). When my son graduates from his bassinet into his crib in his nursery, he will love going to sleep with this. It automatically shuts off in 25 minutes I believe, so that’s another plus – you don’t have to worry about it running all night long. I’m a big believer in reading reviews, and the amount of 5 stars this device has received, made it a no-brainer to buy. I highly recommend this product.

    I purchased the beautiful blue, soft turtle. the shell is the only hard part. it comes with volume, sound and light movement options. the volume can go as low as a soft background music or as loud as regular music. the sounds are ocean sounds or ocean sounds with music. my 4 yr old son likes the option with the music. the light display looks like water and fills the whole room. it can stay still or gently rock back and forth like the movement of the waves. its quite a beautiful turtle. it was ready for use straight out of the package. i highly recommend for new parents or parents of children who have a hard time sleeping alone/waking up at night. my son can turn it on by himself if he wakes up and it doesn’t wake me or my husband from across the hall. its very peaceful music that last about 30 minutes. batteries are easy to change. you will need a screwdriver.

  174. K.P.

    I love the water design that is projected and the soothing ocean sounds. It’s possible I like this more than baby but he’s only 3 weeks and I don’t think he’s noticed the projection yet. The ocean sounds lull us both into a peaceful sleep every night!

  175. Jules

    Oh my word this thing is FANTASTIC! I want one for my room! I got it for my twin kiddos in the bunk beds who complain they cant get to sleep. Not a word since we got this. It really looks like your underwater, and the music is lovely and soothing. So much better in person than any picture can portray! Just get it! You wont be disappointed!

  176. Hilary

    My daughter is 20 months old. This arrived while she was napping. I snuck into her room and put it on her bed. When she woke up she was so excited! She absolutely loves it!

    My nephew got a tranquil turtle, and when he came to visit I first heard of this product. I have had issues falling asleep for the last 2 years, and this turtle is one of the easiest ways for me to calm down and fall asleep. I bought this turtle at the same time as a noise machine with ocean waves on it-and after trying both I prefer the tranquil turtle when it comes to sleep. I highly recommend this for anyone with sleep problems or anxiety issues. It is well worth the price.

  179. Heather D

    This is so unbelievable cute and cool. My son is autistic and LOVES water. We are using this as a get to sleep tool and he loves to watch the “water” on the ceiling and hear the peaceful sound of the ocean. Sometimes we also play the music. It is quite bright, so I would place it higher than your child’s eye level when they are going to sleep or it could be distracting. I was afraid it was pricey for what it is, but after I fired it up, I loved it. It may become my “go to” baby shower gift from this point forward.

    Adorable

  181. Jose Rivera

    We immediately fell in love with this guy once it arrived but better yet, the song it plays truly soothes the baby!We were playing the song for the last 5 weeks of the pregnancy, right by the belly, and on his first day bag during one of his crying spells, we played the song. He immediately quieted and tilted his head toward the turtle – amazing.

  182. Helen

    I bought the tranquil turtle for my stepdaughter, 6, who refuses to sleep in her bed and always wants to sleep with my husband and me. It was a very tough struggle. She and I found the tranquil turtle and she loved it because it looked “cool.” When it arrived, it was all she could talk about and she has not begged to sleep with us since!!! This product is amazing and she sleeps soundly through the night in her OWN bed. I would suggest this product to everyone of all ages. It has even put me to sleep and time it two. TWO THUMBS UP!

  183. luna

    My little one loves the motion waves and the sounds of the ocean but I have to say, I use this for myself as well. This thing is really bright too, so make sure to turn the brightness all the way down and then gradually increase to your liking. The maximum light act as a nightlight for when he is sleeping.I was hesitant on this buy because of some of the reviews but I’m glad I went through with the purchase. It works for me and my little one.

  184. Pamela O

    Alright, so the price seems a bit much for some stuffed animal right? It’s worth every penny! The lights, the waves, the music, all of it, just a wonderful and cute and very practical night sleep light for any child’s/baby room. It’s light enough and soft enough to put into a toddler bed or even baby’s crib to sleep with. It’s strong enough in sound and light to place next to a childs bed (like a side table) as well.I agree with other reviewers on the time this item stays on. 23-25 minutes and the whole thing turns off. It would be nice if you could set the item for varied set of times and up too several hours. it would be even more helpful if it came with an adapter to plug into the wall instead of just batteries. But… for all the wonderful things it does and how absolutely adorable it is, I’m more than happy with it and would highly recommend this item to parents and grandparents alike.Pamela OCitrus Heights Ca

    This is the sweetest little turtle. Purchased it for my nephew’s 2nd birthday as a gift. It will serve as a night light as well as provide soothing sounds and wave patterns. The batteries that came with it were not working, but once we replaced those, it was working just fine. I think we’ll be happy with this.

  187. Lynnamint

    My husband keeps stealing this out of my son’s nursery and my 6 year old is asking for one for Christmas. It’s quite popular in our house.Very soothing to look at and very soothing to listen to (ocean sounds and very peaceful, not at all annoying music).We had the starry version of this turtle and this is a big improvement. Wish the other one moved as this one does.

  188. Cymbidium

    Five month old twins are in trance of calm. Love this turtle. We may need two

  189. Reader, Tx

    My grand is used to this at bedtime at home. Needed one at my house so we didn’t have to tote it back and forth for sleep overs. She loves it. Seems like a lot of money for what it is but – it’s for grandbaby so ……. 🙂

  190. Lee

    Grandchildren love it.

    LIGHTS UP AT NIGHT AND SOOTHING MUSIC. PUTS BABY TO SLEEP & TO BE HONEST HELPS PUT MOMMY TO SLEEP AS WELL. =)

  192. Meggi1123

    I wasn’t sure what my son would think of this, but we both love it! The turtle is a good size and it truly is relaxing! My 13 month old was excited about it the first couple nights and kept pointing and “ohhing” and “ahhing” over the waves. Now, he just lays backs and relaxes, enamored with the waves gliding over the walls and ceiliing. We got this over the other cloub B turtles because this has the wave sounds and the lullaby (his fav). I think it was definitely worth the extra in the price. Naps are easier with this too!

  193. Dhaverland1

    We got one for camping. He was 9 months even the adults liked the calming effect from watching this. It lasted 4 years before we had to replace. Will buy again.

  194. I.B.P.

    The turtle is lovely and very relaxing – the parents might dose off before the children!My 10-month old was at first excited to see the light and to hear the sound, but after a couple of evenings she began associating it with sleep. Now when I turn it off, she relaxes. Both the melody and the hush of the waves are very pleasant.It’s possible to put the light without the sound, but not the other way around. My baby sometimes turns the turtle on its back (which blocks the light) just before letting herself drift off to sleep…

  195. lori d.

    We love this turtle as does our baby but it dies all the time. Took to buying rechargeable batteries for how many times we have to change them. Still disappointed in the turtles life but when he works. Wow, just wow. Lights up the room with waves and different melodies I feel like I’m at a spa. Puts mommy and baby to sleep. Can’t use just music though mist have light on for music to play so that’s a small con

  196. Rachel Denise Falk

    I’d give it 10 stars if I could. Used it the first night we tried putting our 2 month old in his crib. Read that the 23 minute auto shut off was a downside of this product. Not sure where they came up with this number but our son lied there awake, mesmerized, and at 23 minutes when it shut off he fell asleep immediately and woke up 6 hours later.his longest stretch yet. Next night 7 hrs next night 8 hours. As far as I’m concerned this thing is the best ones I have spent on any baby item. All hail the tranquil turtle.

  197. Kristen

    We love our tranquil turtle! We had one for 4 years, unfortunately it was kicked off the bottom of the bed one too many times while our child was sleeping. When it finally gave out we had to order another one! Our son still loves to use it to fall asleep. We’re hoping he will share it with his new baby sister when she comes!

  198. Anya T. Kayatmo

    I wish I got this instead of the crib mobile! It’s the coolest thing to see ripples of water dance across the walls. The only thing I wish it had was a plug-in option so we could keep it on all night – like a night light. Other than that, it’s a baby product I would recommend to all parents!

  199. KJ

    I have one of these for each of our kids and have given it to a number of friends as well. Such a soothing addition to a nursery or bedroom. I sleep with it in bed with my son and I and the soft light and gentle sounds are perfect for middle of the night feedings or wake ups.

  200. Binerfamily

    I first discovered this when I was watching my nieces and realized I needed one in my life ASAPso soothingI do the moving waves and the musicputs me to sleep in minutes

  201. Angelo Pulgiano

    My 1 year old loves turning this on. It is part of his bedtime routine. He turns it on and goes right to sleep. Peaceful and beautiful.

  202. Juanita Miller

    We had one of these for my first child when he was a baby, now my 6,4,2 all have one. They absolutely love the turtles, the ocean waves and soft tranquil lights & sounds.

  203. Redbeauty

    My daughter (13 months) slept in her own bed for the very first time with the help of this little miracle worker. Something about it just relaxes her enough that she gives in and falls asleep on her own. I was skeptical for sure because she has been in my bed feeding two to three times a night. First night, and I woke her up to feed. Definitely worth the money so far!!!

  204. Mom24

    First of all, I wasn’t expecting that a child’s nightlight would be so fantastic. The underwater effect is so soothing, not too harsh and rather realistic. Even the sounds, both the ocean waves and the relaxing tunes are done well. Both kids love it, 4 month is mezmerized, 2.5 year old is soothed into sleepytime, and I admit, my husband and I have each shut the kids door and escaped for a moment of ‘zen’. This thing is great. We’ve already bought 2 for friends’ kids.The only downer is how fast it drained the batteries. In all fairness the batteries I speak of are the ones that are included for free with the toy, and we all can agree that usually included batteries are never quality. So I have yet to comment on how long our store bought ones will last.Overall a really great buy!

  205. ShepherdMom

    This is my second one of these that I have bought. The first one was a frog and I bought it from Babies R Us. It got dropped a few times and the spinning light part stopped working but the music played. I would recommend buying a warranty with this in case that happens again. The turtle one, which we bought through Amazon, is working just fine. We have not really dropped it which is probably helped haha my son has been using this from the time he was born until now and he is almost one. He loves the soothing lullaby and staring at the wave-like lights on the ceiling as they move really helps keep him occupied as he falls asleep. I haven’t found another thing that moves like this does and I absolutely love this.

  206. Shannon

    I think I like it more than my child.. lol, it’s very soft and soothing we don’t use it for sleep but we turn out the lights and have underwater adventures.

  207. Tony Saccullo

    I ordered this for my 2 ½ year old grandson and he loves it. He has named it and uses ti whenever he takes a nap or goes to the bed at night. He shows me how it works whenever I go visit. My son and daughter-in-law also like it and have asked for another one for the new baby which is due in a few weeks.

  208. book lover

    I rarely write reviews. But I just made a timely escape from the room of a sleeping 3 year old twins and it was with the help of this turtle. I debated between the tranquil turtle and the cheaper version with the static star lights. I am so glad I went for this one. It’s a combination of the moving lights and the sound that help keep the kids calm. We have a very tough sleeper and this has greatly helped. It’s not magic— but with the right conditions in place it helps my little one settle down at night and for naps.
