    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.

    I wish it was easier for my toddler to turn on himself, but he loves his turtle! Perfect combination of sounds and light

    We bought this product for a friend’s children for Christmas. They told us about how much their kids liked this. They used it as a nightlight and it was easier to get theur kids to go to sleep bc they found being “underwater” was fun and peaceful. They said their children fell asleep faster before the device times out. I think at about 30 min. I bought another turtle for myself, as an adult, to help with sleep. I travel a lot and have a hard time sleeping in new places, especially with various white noise. I turn the turtle on before I sleep and for aome weird reason I am out like a light. This turtle has been great for my friends children and to help me sleep on the road. I highly recommend this product as a night light and as a sleep aid. The turtle turns itself off after about 30 min, saving batteries. I have yet to be awake for this, but it is off when I wake up in the AM.

    my husband discovered this and i am so glad we got it. I bought another product, Sleep Sheep, from the same company and our baby has been sleeping to the sounds of sleep sheep since she was born, but we wanted something a little more. Tranquil Turtle has a really cool blue reflective light that makes her room look like an underwater scene in an old Hollywood movie before they had cgi. there are also soothing ocean sounds, like Sleep Sheep. The only downside to this is the timer for how long it stays on before turning off. i haven’t quite figured it out yet, but i wish it was like the Sleep Sheep, where you can set it for 45 minutes at a time, which was perfect if the baby didn’t want to go to bed right away. All in all, Tranquil Turtle is very cool and soothing and the reflective lights fascinate the baby (and to some extent, us too!) Very good buy, very happy with my purchase. we’re thinking about giving it as a gift to our cousin’s new baby girl too.

    My 7 year old son has an underwater theme in his bedroom and we looked eveywhere online for an affordable light that would make the water effects. Tranquil Turtle fit the bill! It not only has various brightness settings but also plays ocean sounds and calming music. We have had him for over a month and we LOVE it! It is built very well! I would reccomment this to anyone who is looking to light up a bedroom etc. My 10 year old daughter has also added the Tranquil Turtle to her birthday wish list so it is not babyish either! Thanks for a quality product Cloud B!!!

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. JL (store manager)

    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.

  13. 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!!!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. Marine Black (store manager)

    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

  19. sara (store manager)

    This turtle works great! I haven’t had to change the batteries since I got it over a month ago. The light seems a little bright for my eyes but my 2 year old doesn’t seem to mind. I just wish it went longer than 23 minutes.

  20. Mary Helen (store manager)

    Love this but the reason for 4 stars is the battery life is only about a month long (only using it 1-2 times a day) which is fine, but the tiny screw to the battery compartment is getting some wear and I don’t expect it to last long. My sister had one of these for years that I inherited eventually and it is amazing other than this one issue. Their battery back fell off eventually which is hazardous! Hopefully we can be extra careful with this one.

  21. Jenn Morgan (store manager)

    This is our second Tranquil Turtle. We love it. So calming for the kids, even my older kids want to fall asleep with it which is why we purchased a second. The portability of it is great. Overall it’s a great product & we love it!

  22. Amazon Customer (store manager)

    I have given this to so many of my friends and family when they have a newborn! So far, everyone has told me that this really works well with their baby and it does help the babies sleep, which is something that they appreciate to no end since they can get some sleep themselves.

  23. dawn j orchard (store manager)

    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!

  24. 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!

  25. 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!

  26. 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.

  27. 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

  28. 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…

  29. 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.

  30. DMD (store manager)

    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.

  31. Julie McD (store manager)

    Absolutely one of my favorite things in this world. All 3 of y boys have been gifted cloud B turtle lights but this by far our favorite for the movement and ocean sounds.

  32. Dawn Cope (store manager)

    This has helped my son sleep every night since he was born. After 7 years, his first turtle died so we immediately bought another one. Best sound machine and night light out there.

  33. kcb (store manager)

    we had one of these given to us as a gift when my baby was born THREE years ago. it got used every night, and then recently, no matter how many batteries we put in it, it wouldn’t stop flashing. we sent it off to turtle valhalla, for a job well done. and replaced it immediately, bc the kid is obsessed with the turtle.

  34. Jette (store manager)

    PURCHASED SEVERAL OF THESE FROM QVC FOR GRANDCHILDREN AND BABY SHOWERS. FINALLY GOT ONE FOR MYSELF, IT BLOCKS OUT NOISE ENOUGH TO SLEEP. THIS ORDER IS TO REPLACE ONE I HAD FOR APPROX 2 YEARS.

  35. 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!

  36. sweetpea7733

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

  37. Lee

    Grandchildren love it.

  38. 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 ……. 🙂

  39. Cymbidium

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

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. Brisco (store manager)

    We have had this turtle since 2016. It was a gift from my late brother to my son as a first Christmas gift. EVERY night since then, he has to have it on. I recommend this toy to every child, it is pretty durable as well. The light fills up his room & is so relaxing even for me.Batteries last decent too…. Don’t hesitate, buy it!

  43. Caithlin (store manager)

    This turtle is super cute but the light only worked for 4 months! I thought the batteries were dying but I put in fresh ones and the light would be so dim you could barely see it. I read the other reviews saying that the light didn’t last long and I thought that maybe their kids dropped it or something but my kids didn’t play with the turtle! It stayed on the table and they only pushed the button to turn it on at bedtime and it still broke but they love playing with it now

  44. ShepherdMom (store manager)

    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.

  45. Nick (store manager)

    Has a cute design, a pleasant light show, calming waves sounds, or waves with music. The turtle also comes with the batteries ready to go. We’ve been using it as a compliment to our mobile to soothe our young baby when she’s in different areas of the apartment. So far she seems to enjoy the light show on the walls and the relaxing music. I like that you can control volume and light brightness as to not hurt the little one’s eyes. The last thing I like is that the music doesn’t sound tinny and low quality which is what you tend to get with a lot of baby toys, swings, etc.It’s slightly on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for.

    Beautiful baby loves it so much

  47. 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.

  49. 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!

  50. TLo (store manager)

    My kids have used two other sleepytime animals including the twilight ladybug, but the Tranquil Turtle tops them both. It’s very versatile. The waves that are projected on the ceiling can flow smoothly, or you can hit a button and stop the movement which would be great if the movement was causing over stimulation for young babies or toddlers. I particularly love that you can reduce the brightness of the light with the dial hidden under the back flap. The melody is extremely soothing, and again, can be reduced in volume using the top buttons. The other sleep animals we’ve used have been too bright at times and also too noisy so this was a great change. Thanks Cloud B!!!

  51. A.W. (store manager)

    The sound isn’t loud enough and this is an issue for our family because my son has hearing problems. He has to hold the turtle to his ear to hear it. The first turtle I bought had NO sound – just warbled fuzzy sounds even with a battery change. The buttons are flimsy and the turtle isn’t very well made as far as its electronic and mechanical parts go- but it’s cute and soft and makes my kid smile. The lights are pretty and soothing- it’s really NOT worth the money at all. It probably cost about as much as a sandwich or less to make this in China. But I’m not returning it because my son loves it.I honestly think people’s great reviews of this item are based on the cute sentimentalism of the toy and the novelty of the lights and not really on how well made the toy is.

  52. KaOs (store manager)

    I had a little stuffed elephant that projected stars on the ceiling. There was no dimmer so the stars were very bright. The sound system was distorted and the music was loud. So i splurged for a better projector and bought this product. I love the gentle waves that move across the ceiling. I love the light dimmer so you can make it brighter or dimmer. I like the beach wave sound. My only wish is that it had a longer timer. Mine turns off after 23 minutes or so and my kid stays awake longer than that. The velcro on the back does not hold the flap very well either allowing my kid access to the dimmer as well.Aside from these though it really is a great product. Im satisfied with it.

  53. KL (store manager)

    My wife and I bought this for our 15 month old daughter and she LOVES it. We were testing this in our bedroom with the lights out, shades closed. She just laid down with us on the floor and watched the projections for the whole time. Even the “soothing” sounds, consisting of ocean waves crashing or a soothing lullaby, helped the whole ambiance. The sounds aren’t annoying either as some toys you just want to junk right away because they are so annoying. Just for information, our daughter never sits in one spot for very long, she’s always up doing something or getting into something. But this tranquil turtle kept her calm and relaxed for the whole time. This is a great purchase for us!

  54. MW (store manager)

    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.

  55. KJ (store manager)

    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.

  56. 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.

  57. Landra Liebling

    Adorable

  58. 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.

  59. 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!

  62. 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!

  63. 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!

  64. Anthony S (store manager)

    The turtle is soothing with a combination of waves/music/ light effects. However, it was more of a distraction for our daughter whom just became curious of the blue lights. Music and wave sounds are very peaceful. Would be better if there was a setting to turn off the blue lights and just allowed music to play. Good product.

  65. Juanita Miller (store manager)

    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.

  66. Grace Han (store manager)

    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!

  67. Craig M. (store manager)

    2 month old really enjoys watching it as she falls asleep. Sometimes when we put her to down she starts winding up to be mad – turn this on and it relaxes her where she can put herself to sleep.If I could leave 4.5 stars i would for one reason – if you really watch the movement on the wall its a little jerky as the wheel rotating the light hits the peak of the oval or cam that’s turning on. Not terribly noticeable, but putting a newborn down isn’t always a speedy process and so you get some time to notice these things.

  68. D. Naasz (store manager)

    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.

  69. D. B. Shaw (store manager)

    Bought this for my grandchild who was colicky. Most electronic music is of poor quality and annoying, but this is pleasant and soothing… transitions from one melody to another gently… comforting. The watery light effect is very pretty and soothing. Baby sleeps with it every night, and now she cuddles with it. She’s not a great sleeper, but this does help.Two complaints… wish there was an option to make it run longer before turning off. The second is that it put the baby’s daddy to sleep the first time he put her to bed and stayed with her in her room!This is the one to get… we have a cheaper knock-off, not nearly as good. My niece used this for her baby and recommended it to us.

  70. I.B.P. (store manager)

    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.

  71. Hiba SHAKI (store manager)

    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

  72. RD (store manager)

    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.

    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.

    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!

  76. 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.

  77. 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.

    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 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.

  80. rmarinea (store manager)

    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.

  81. LPNG (store manager)

    This product is a life saver, my son has sensory processing behavior and really struggled to go to sleep, the turtle helps to give him a routine and a unique experience going to sleep. He still prefers his light on while it plays. The only draw back is the fixed 23 minutes that it plays music for. There should be a way to adjust this according to each kid’s need. I gave it 3 stars for battery life because in the last month that I had it I have had to change it twice.

  82. 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.

  83. 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.

  84. KC (store manager)

    I bought this for my 1 year old son for Christmas. He liked his older brother Pillowpet/Dreamlites so I thought this would be something good for him. The underwater effect is very calming and it’s great that it shuts off by itself as he is usually asleep by the time it is done. We don’t use the sound because it isn’t really loud enough for his room, we use a separate sound machine that we already had along with it. We do use the sound on the turtle when we travel though because then we will just put it in his crib with him.

  85. Denise Fallon (store manager)

    very happy with this product , very relaxing….volume and light control….very good….I am very pleased with this product.I have a child with special needs and this is very helpful to relax him at night time especially as at night time he can be very excited and I need him to calm down…other family members also enjoy it!!!!!

  86. 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.

  87. 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!

  88. Shea (store manager)

    Wish there was an option to keep on for certain times and not just 23 minutes

  89. 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!

  90. 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.

  91. Elena Pape (store manager)

    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.

  92. edlib (store manager)

    I have a 6 year old who likes to have company in the room to fall asleep. He’s old enough to not need someone to put him to sleep, but psychs himself into thinking he’s scared. All he needed was an incentive and a tool to help him. This was it, and he likes it. He’s able to adjust the brightness himself and fiddle with the controls.Still early to tell how long / how much this will help. Will update if things improve or worsen.

  93. Fitzgerald (store manager)

    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.

  94. J. Richard Ludgin (store manager)

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

  95. 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 .

  96. 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.

  97. 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.

  98. 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.

  99. 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.

  100. 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.

  101. 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.

  102. 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.

  103. 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.

  104. 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.

  105. Sarah Antczak (store manager)

    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.

  106. Mom24 (store manager)

    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!

  107. Kindle Customer (store manager)

    Love the music and ocean sounds. Projects a pretty blue moving water light that lights the room up enough to see the babies. My major complaints are: cannot be plugged into the wall and dies ALL THE TIME, and the blue light is too bright to look at directly (hurts my eyes). I could forgive the bright light, but the battery only thing is annoying. The older turtle model we have for my older son had both a plug in and a battery… wish I could buy that one again!

  108. 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.

  109. 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.

  110. 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.

  111. Tretana

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

  112. 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.

  113. 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

  114. 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.

  115. 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.

  116. 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.

  117. KariR

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

  118. 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 !

  119. Amazon Customer (store manager)

    Love this turtle.Projection is the best. I love how I feel like I’m in an aquarium. It’s legit too, covers the whole room – ceiling and walls. It rocks back and forth, I do wish it was a little more liquid like, but it’s still beautiful and peaceful. Best projection I’ve ever seen.Sounds are good. Wish there were more, but the two that are on there are nice. My son prefers the ocean sound which is closest to white noise.Love that you can adjust the volume and movement of the lights, and that it has automatic shut off.NOTE: you can have lights without sound, but not sound without lights. Hasn’t bothered me at all, but good to know.I had one for my daughter. She loved it but she outgrew it and I stripped the screw to the battery door so I couldn’t change the batteries, so I got rid of it. Just bought another one for my 4 month old and he loves it too – I’m so glad because he’s so different from her and it’s an expensive toy/sleep aid. But pleased to report so far so great!

  120. Jules (store manager)

    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!

  121. Brittani (store manager)

    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.

  122. tim curran (store manager)

    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.

  123. Pamela O (store manager)

    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

    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!

  125. Amazon Customer (store manager)

    I purchased this turtle for $79 right before Christmas, and when I went to show a family member what I bought, I saw the price drop to $45. It was a little frustrating, but really my own fault for not price comparision shopping…. The product is great. It lights up bright and covers most of the room in pretty blue ocean waves. It has 2 music settings. My son loves it. My only complaint is I would have liked to see a few more songs or a variety in light shows for $80. But if you pay $50, its an awesome buy 🙂

  126. Sarah (store manager)

    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.

  127. lori d. (store manager)

    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

    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!

    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.

    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!

  131. Nana Kim (store manager)

    Bought this for upcoming babybirth so I havent tried this on the baby yet, but the music is so relaxing and the color is so beautiful. Our first son loves turtles so it was a no brainer when I decided to buy this one. The lighting was a bit small to cover an entire room but it was better this way than to overstimulating the baby or getting too distracting. Overall very pleased with this purchase.

    My daughter has an older version of this turtle. When she saw this one, she wanted it. It was an end of school gift and she was so excited to get it. It is really cute and much nicer than the original one. She loves the wave motion and falls asleep staring at the ceiling every night, along with the sound effects. However, after a week the wave motion stopped working so now the waves don’t move across her ceiling. I just contacted customer service to see about getting a replacement. Needless to say, she is not happy about not having it for a few nights! Hopefully we can get a replacement quickly and the problem won’t happen again. I will add that it arrived within 2 days of ordering it (on a weekend no less), so kudos to Amazon and the seller for quick delivery.

    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.

  135. 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.

  136. 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.

  137. J. Richard Ludgin

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

  138. 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.

  139. Amazon Customer

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

  140. Dan (store manager)

    I like that you can adjust the volume of the music and ocean sounds but wish that it could be even quieter. I also wish the brightness could be turned down even more. Otherwise I do like the moving water reflection that it makes on the ceiling.

  141. Peggy Woods (store manager)

    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.

  142. 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

  143. Busy Mom

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

  144. 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.

  145. T. Johnson

    Perfect for helping little ones rest while going to sleep

  146. 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.

    I purchased this item to try and help my 21 month old son calm down and sleep at night. When we received it, he lived it right away and wanted to play with it. It looks nice and the effects are cool. But it hasn’t really helped settle our son or help him to fall asleep. A cool toy, but so far no help with sleep.

  149. Kristin Lacovara (store manager)

    I had to return this for it making a funky mechanical noise when the light moved. I planned to purchase another and now it doesn’t seem to be available. Me and my daughter Love this thing. She had her older sisters turtle until it died 6 montha ago and I got her this new one for her birthday she recently got but it made the weird noise. If I knew before sending it back for a refund I couldn’t get another. I would have kept it!! Please send it back if you don’t make them anymore. My daughter misses it soo much!!

  150. HM (store manager)

    What I like: I like the ocean sounds and the lights. It really does seem to help. My husband and I even used it pre-baby and it conked us right out.What I don’t like:- I wish you could just play the sound without the light on.- Our button to stop the motion in the light doesn’t work (I was too lazy to return and exchange because I already had to return and exchange once due to receiving the wrong color).- I wish there was maybe ONE more sound setting, like a mother’s heart beat… but that’s just getting really picky- The price! It’s pretty pricey for a small turtleOveral.. it does what it says, I think my overall gripe is just the price. For what it does, it’d be nice if it was maybe $10 cheaper. Mobiles and sound/light soothers are randomly more expensive than I would think in general, though.

  151. Alovey (store manager)

    The price has gone up $10 since I ordered it the beginning of April. Definitely not worth the price. I was coming back to purchase a second as a back up since my toddler loves it. There is another one that is the same color for $15 cheaper, so look it up! Also, the batteries don’t last long at all (after 6-10 times turning it on it needs to be changed) . When the light looks like it’s not as bright, don’t assume it’s broken, change the batteries first! No idea how long it will last since I purchased it a month ago. Two starts taken away formbattery life and upping the price.

  152. troublestarr2000 (store manager)

    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.

    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!

  154. 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.

    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.

  156. 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!

  157. 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.

  158. 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??

  159. 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***

  160. Lewis (store manager)

    I got this after lots of price/review comparisons, and had pretty high expectations for it. Here are the pros and cons for me:Pros:Nice sounds, not overwhelming or annoying – nice that you can choose no sound.Good light features – not too bright/dim, not too fast or slow, nice that you can make it still or wavy, realistic water patternsGood area coverage – I put it in my kids’ rooms when they go to sleep (which are smaller) then take it into the master bedroom when I’m ready for bed. As long as it is in the middle of the room at about 6 feet down from the ceiling (like it says to do), with no obstructions around the sides, it covers the whole ceiling, plus lots of the walls!The timer is 23 minutes (or close to that) so I don’t have to worry about it running all night, though I do wish it had different time settings so I could run it longer/shorter or continuously if I wanted.Cons:The actual bulb is very bright, especially in a dark room – I have to pile a blanket in front of it so that the actual turtle isn’t in my line of sight or it’s very distracting.The wave motion is kind of jerky (it’s basically the bulb rotating and it has small mechanical jerks which show up quite obviously on the ceiling). But its actually not too hard to look past IMO.Basically, I find this product very soothing and pleasing – it has met all my expectations, and even though there are a few annoyances, they are easy to fix/get over.

  161. Heather D (store manager)

    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.

  162. ApparentNewParent (store manager)

    This was one of those rare baby products that the whole family enjoyed–the baby while watching it at night, and his parents while watching the baby watching it at night!The lights are quite strong, but not so strong as to keep a baby awake. The ripple effect on the ceiling and walls is pretty mesmerizing, with an electric blue tint. The music adds a nice touch. It’s not a conventional electronic baby toy noise–that tinny, annoying sound that comes out of a lot of electronic walkers or stuffed animals. This is more new-agey, mood music. We found that it made us pretty sleepy, too.It’s not a toy that he lugs around from room to room or plays with–nor was it meant to be that kind of toy. It stays put on a shelf in his room, and it gets used nearly every night as a soothing way to fall asleep.And by the way–we’ve had good luck traveling with this, too. No matter where we are–hotel, grandmas, etc.–he has the consistency of this turtle to lull him to sleep.

  163. Mentatassasin (store manager)

    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.

  164. Helen (store manager)

    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!

  165. Amazon Customer (store manager)

    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.

  166. Sara Anger (store manager)

    Super Easy to use and understand. Only reason I left out a star is that it only runs for 26ishmin. We bought it to help sooth overnight and there’s no way to keep it running for longer than 26ish mins. So we have another sound machine running as well for overnight. Great lighting though.

  167. Felicity Gillespie (store manager)

    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.

  170. 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!!!

  171. 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.

  172. Jordan Calvin (store manager)

    I got this for my son on Christmas 2018. Its now almost a year later and hes been rough with it, but it’s still 100% ..he uses it every night and I’ve maybe changed the batteries 3 times? Beautiful ocean wave projector and you can adjust the sound

  175. Katherine P. (store manager)

    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.

  176. 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.

  177. 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.

  178. 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!

  179. RustyTX55

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

  181. Kay S (store manager)

    I was skeptical about this. But we were willing to try anything at this point to get our 2 year old to sleep. This definitely helped him stay in his bed and not come into mine. It also helped calm my sick 7 month old. I’m actually impressed.Update:Holy crap its magic. This soothed my sick two year old and helped him get back to sleep. He cuddles with it every night now with the lights and music going….and he never liked any sound machines before.

    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!

  184. Lorraine K. (store manager)

    Saw this in a baby store while visiting my daughter. It was so expensive! I found it on Amazon at a much better price. My grandson’s room is decorated Nautical. This is a sweet little addition.

  185. luna (store manager)

    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.

  186. 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!

  187. 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.

  188. 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!

  189. Sheena Harvey (store manager)

    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 😉

  190. 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.

    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.

  192. 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!

    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”

  194. 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.

  195. 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!

    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.

  197. 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.

    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!!!

    Turtle arrived as promised! Appears sturdy and tested it out…ls easy enough to use. Im dure my brand new grandson will get years of use from this lovely product.. i dont really know how long batteries last yet

  200. Angie (store manager)

    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.

  201. 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.

  202. 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.

  203. 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.

  205. 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.

  206. 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.

  207. 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.

  208. C.L. (store manager)

    We previously bought one of these at ToysRUs a year ago. The LEDs gave out, so we purchased a new one here. The quality was far worse than before. The buttons are cheaper-feeling and the stitching on the arms was not as nice. Then, the movement mechanism broke down ONE DAY AFTER PURCHASE! I can’t return it because my son would freak if it was missing for a day. Not sure what to do.

  209. A. Shannon (store manager)

    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.

  210. LB MCA (store manager)

    My son loves this! We had the little stuffed pillow dog with stars and three kinds of lights but I wanted a light for my youngest son. My eldest stole it because he loves it so much! There is one song and one ocean sound effect and they are both very pleasant. I do wish it also included white noise. There is also a brightness control on the bottom. The item was much smaller then I expected. I gave it 4 stars just because, for the price, it should have had a few more features. The quality of the product is great though!

  211. Eliotbinks (store manager)

    I have had the turtle for a little over a week and thus far it has been worth every penny. I have a three year old that refuses to stay in bed and before the turtle he was up five or six times before he would go to sleep. Every night was consumed dealing with bedtime. Now he’s up once or not at all and the only reason he gets up is if the turtle turns off and he still has not fallen asleep. I personally think the product is somewhat strange looking on the ceiling and expensive when you consider the materials it is made out of, but the kid loves it and I have my evenings back! I would buy one of these each month just for that alone. I only wish I had found this sooner.

  212. 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!

  213. 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

  214. 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

  215. Jasmine (store manager)

    I just got the package. Thankfully batteries are included because as I was digging through the closet I realized we’re out of AA batteries. Anyway, the package got here just before nap time. Pulled it out, saw there were batteries (it requires a small screw driver). Swaddled baby, put him in his dark room, turned it on, pacifier and IT WOOORRKED. I’m so excited I could jump through the roof. Ok I know it’s only the first try and I’ll have to update this later when we’ve had it for a while. But I’m so excited, trying to get my 2.5 month old down to sleep can be a huge ordeal. Not this time, I put him right down, wide awake, I watched him on the baby monitor as he looked at the lights for a few mins and then passed out! I’m so hoping this continues to work!!I didn’t use the sound on it as we have a white noise machine he really likes but I think I’ll try it next nap time and will update the review. The projections are really pretty and I’ll get a picture to add here so you can all see it. On the bottom by the batteries there is a dial you can make it dimmer or brighter (I used the brightest setting). I LOVE that it times out so it doesn’t drain the battery.I will update this review after more use of the product.

  216. jamsandwich (store manager)

    Okay, to start with — how cute is this little turtle? I wanted to hug him right away. I think that for a small room this would be a perfect item, but I got him to use in a large classroom and the light barely shows on our ceiling and walls (even at the highest brightness). I’m thinking about getting blackout curtains to see if that helps… but that’s so much more work I do not have time for.This turtle is adorable and creates wonderful ambiance, but if you have a large room or one that is not pitch-black he will not make an underwater haven for you. Sorry, little kids in my room! I was really looking forward to a sensory experience for us during relaxation time. Perhaps this little turtle should come home with me? I’d hate to send him back…

  217. Joel (store manager)

    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!

  218. Mom of twinettes (store manager)

    This was by far the best item on my baby registry. If you think you absolutely need a stroller for your twins, or those bottles for your baby girl… think again! This totally adorable turtle makes you feel like you are fliating calmly underwater and that really, yes, it’s OK to wake up at 3 am to feed your baby because you are really sipping cocktails on a tropical island.

  219. JB Wiese (store manager)

    Caution, you will buy one for every little person in your family. This is our second one. Our oldest daughter had the original cloud b turtle and we bought this for our unborn daughter. Needless to say when she saw this one with the wave motion light on the ceiling she liberated it and now has both. We purchased another one for our youngest daughter, which is still sleeping in our room so we get to enjoy it too.

  220. 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.

  221. 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.

  222. 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.

  223. 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.

  224. 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! 🙂

  225. Loretta K. Smith

    Baby loves staring at the waves on the ceiling.

  226. 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.

  227. 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!

  228. 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!

  229. 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.

  230. Egad (store manager)

    I was so torn between Tranquil Turtle and Twilight Turtle that I bought both to use for a week to see which one my baby preferred. I was hoping he’d like the starry Twilight Turtle because it’s considerably cheaper, but in the end when put side by side, my baby invariably chose the watery Tranquil Turtle. He loves it and it is quite beautiful. It plays a new-agey music loop that isn’t annoying. It is now a permanent staple of our bedtime routine.ProsUnlike the Twilight Turtle which is stationary, there is gentle movement displayed on your child’s ceiling. It is mesmerizing to my baby. Also, there is a dial on the bottom of the turtle to adjust the brightness, and the ability to change the volume of the music. The Twilight Turtle does not have music which is another reason we ultimately went with the Tranquil Turtle despite price difference. My 10 month old quickly learned to press the small buttons to turn the turtle on and sooth himself back to sleep.ConsThey lose a star because it only plays for 23 minutes. At the very least it should play for 30 minutes. Also, the when the battery is running low the light flashes on and off. Not the best when you have a sleepy babe in your arms and realize you can’t readily change the battery (which requires a screwdriver). I would rather it just not turn on at all than suddenly turn the nursery into a strobe-light disco.Overall we love this turtle and it matches our coral reef themed nursery perfectly. It would make a great gift but does come with a rather hefty price tag. It’s worth it though.

  231. Keri (store manager)

    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.

  232. Kate G. (store manager)

    I got this turtle for my almost two years old figuring he could learn to turn it on himself for the early morning when he’s awake, but no one else is. The turtle has enough light for his crib area and puts off a decent volume. I like the music it plays–very relaxing. My son was definitely entranced by the lights. He does turn it on if he wakes up in the night or early morning. The batteries have run out twice in about six months of daily use.

  233. Sheanuh (store manager)

    I absolutely LOVE this turtle. It is very cute and plush. The projected wave design is very soothing to my 20 month old he loved the music as well. You can adjust the waves to move or be still. You can also choose between no sound, waves, or gentle music with waves. You can also adjust the sound level. Glad I chose the Tranquil Turtle over the other Star Projection based machines. Like others, I wish it would last longer than 20 minutes 🙁 BUT all in all a great purchase and even better that it’s cheapest through Amazon with free shipping from most sellers.

  234. Amazon Customer (store manager)

    We received the turtle, in what I believe to be a used condition. The wave button was broke, there was no book or adoption paperwork, and it was in the “on” position. So we had to add new batteries, only to discover the wave button doesn’t work. It took 5 emails back and forth to the company that we purchased it from. First I was told they were sending a replacement. When I responded to that email, I inquired if they were sending a return shipping label. They responded back to that wondering if I had called the 800 # for customer service. NO I hadn’t because they said they were sending replacement. Then I recieved another email stating they could not send replacement, and to contact cloud B directly. They did refund the $ to my account. The product would be really cute, and all the kids were very entranced by the water look on the ceiling, but the image didn’t ripple because the button was broken. I am just sending the turtle to cloud B, and they sent me a return label, so if it works out, I will end up with a free turtle, but the hoops I jumped through weren’t worth the $40. Wish it had come in new condition. It’s a really cute toy! I’ll post another review, if we get a new turtle that works.

  237. 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.)

  238. 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.

  239. 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!

  240. Richard grudzinski (store manager)

    Amazing toy! My son on the spectrum loves this so much. It’s amazing in a dark room. Music is great also!!! Thank you for this amazing turtle ❤️

  241. Kristen (store manager)

    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!

  242. LadybugMD (store manager)

    I find this calming for both me and my toddler. he normally cries when we put him in the crib at night, but last night with this on he did not. the light is cool when it projects on the ceiling. there are 2 sound options which are nice. agree that the timer is a little short for both rocking to sleep and laying in the crib, but I think overall a worthwhile investment. I might even gift the second one I bought to an adult with insomnia as the light and sound are both soothing.

  243. Kindle Customer (store manager)

    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.

  244. js

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

  245. 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

  246. 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.

  247. 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.

  248. Cheryl T. (store manager)

    A must for ages 1-?. My 6 year old grandson has been going to sleep to the soft music and star gazing lights since he was born. Obviously durable.

    My almost three year old was still using his Fisher Price projection mobile light as a night light. It was great because whenever he woke up in the middle of the night, he could turn on the light himself, it would comfort him until he fell asleep again and then it would auto-shut off. I needed to move that into our newborn’s room and get him something new. This turtle has been perfect for that function plus unlike the projection light he has named the turtle, so it’s like a “friend” to him.

  251. 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

  252. 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.

  253. 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.

  254. 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!!

    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.

  256. 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!

    If I could give a 10 Star I would!! Loooooove this!!! I am so excited that they are finally back in stock as they were hard to find in the last few years. I bought one for my newborn son 4 years and he still will not fall asleep without this being on!!! It even puts me to sleep sometimes. I love the 23 minute timer so it doesn’t run all night and it’s perfect that you can adjust the volume and brightness. Love also they have a purple one for our soon-to-be here little girl. So I will be purchasing a second one for her. Have to note that there are multiple music sounds but we use the same one every night. Also my son bangs it around occasionally so after 4years, I think he accidentally loosened a wire, but with a whack it goes back to being fine. So I may need to replace it soon, but seems to be ticking on after 4.5 years! This is a def must have for all ages!! Even adults. It’s just so soothing.

    This is my first review-ever. My baby has had acid reflux from day 1-she is 8 months old now. She HATED naps and I mean would stay up all day to avoid them, and be up all night. She is a vampire! I thought I was going to lose my sanity trying to put her down 15 times per day, no use. I read about this product in the NYT ( I have tried everything else) and I have to say- THANK YOU GOD for this turtle. My baby isn’t super cuddly or amused by much. How do I know this works? I turn it on, the music plays, I swaddle her, she cries, but then when she sees turtle in her crib, she reaches out for it and puts her hand on the lights and falls right asleep, to the ocean sounds and music. It’s a miracle, I am serious. She loves this thing and now has 2 naps per day and sleeps 12 hours per night. I swore I would never have another kid after the severe sleep deprivation I endured, but now that I know something out there worked for us, like this product, I am considering it.If your child is an insomniac nap-hater, then this Turtle’s for you! We bought the blue one.

    5 stars for the concept and most of the execution.2 stars for it turning off after 23 minutes! We got this for our 2 y/o daughter who’s recently become scared of the dark. I just gave it to her tonight. BIG hit, except every 23 minutes she starts screaming and crying “it’s not working mama!!” and I have to run up and reset it. We’re on round 3… and I can tell from her delirium that she’s been falling asleep and then waking up when the thing turns off.Having a couple options for the timer would be ideal – I know someone said 23 minutes is based on some sleep research or something, but the trouble is you don’t know how long it will take for the kid to fall asleep before that “optimal time before entering deep sleep” theory kicks in…I would hesitate before recommending this to parents of toddlers who are having trouble sleeping due to fear of the dark.

  260. 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.

  261. 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!

  262. A. Baker (store manager)

    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.

  263. Rachel Denise Falk (store manager)

    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.

  264. KB (store manager)

    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!

  265. Turtle (store manager)

    I’m seriously impressed with both tranquil turtle and the company customer service. The turtle is incredibly relaxing. So much so that I used it in the delivery room and in my master bedroom while going to sleep. The hubby and I were rather loath to turn this wonderful turtle over to our son because we enjoyed him so much.About 26 months after purchase, tranquil turtle stopped turning on. Absolutely nothing. I contacted the company and they said he’s out of the 2 year warranty but they would either fix him out send a new one for free! I paid to ship him back to cloud b and a short time later got out favorite turtle back in perfect condition. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase from cloud b again. They exceeded my expectations.

  266. 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!

  267. Michele (store manager)

    We have gotten one of these for every child (I have three) the lights and sounds are so soothing, better than any other product out there. Also the sound stays on longer than most (about 20min) we use them for naps and night time and I’m usually replacing batteries every 2 weeks which I’m ok with!

  269. jessica (store manager)

    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

  270. Phillip H. (store manager)

    Love these turtles so much, that I have two turtles for my children. However, I have one issue. The first turtle was a gift. It was used every day for three months and is still in use without the motion part of the ocean waves. Despite battery changes to new batteries, the motion part that makes the ocean waves stopped functioning and is still not functioning after only 8 months total use. So I bought a second one and this one works well … but the motion part seems it may have issues on this one too. Regardless the lighting is perfect, the sounds are great and the adjustable volume is a plus.

  271. Emily E Wingo (store manager)

    I love the general concept of this product, but because of the cons listed below I have determined that it is not ideal for my baby. The short play time makes it difficult to use as a sleep training tool because it will often turn off before my son is able to fall asleep. It would be perfect if it was able it plug into the wall and gave the option to use the timer plus the option to select 15, 30, 45, or 60 mins when using the timer.With that being said, I still love this product and am keeping it for my husband and I to use in our room. I am ordering the homedics sound spa for my son’s room.Pros: soothing melody Beautiful, calming wave projection on ceiling PortableCons: only plays for 15 or 20 mins Drains batteries pretty quickly even with the short play time Requires a screwdriver to change batteries

  272. Lessselb (store manager)

    My 3 month old daughter loves this. I like that the water moves or is stationary, it has two “tones” to choose from, or none at all. The water projection is very soothing, and projects further than I expected. It’s light weight, you can dim the lights if you want…and it dims the sound. She definitely gets to sleep faster with this thing, it’s peaceful and I’m super happy I bought it!

  273. 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!

  274. 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.

  275. 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!

  276. Steph&Dan (store manager)

    My almost 2 year old LOVES this turtle and he can’t sleep without it. The only reason we rate it 3 stars is because we’ve only had it for a year and it needs to be replaced. Around 6 months, the waves froze up and wouldn’t move. A month later, the light began flickering on and off. Now, the music works, and sometimes the light does, but we have to replace the batteries every month. We’ve borrowed night lights from friends and he’ll only sleep if he can hear the music from the turtle so we can’t replace this with something that will last longer. It really is a shame because this turtle was really a life-saver, but who can afford to buy a new $60 night light every 6 months? We’ll have to find something that lasts longer for our next child.

  277. Sunshine P. (store manager)

    Very cute toy and nightlight. I liked the concept and look of the turtle however there was some issues1. The motor that creates the “water” like projection is a bit loud. It’s fine when you have it on still projection but if you want to create the movement of water than you’ll hear it.2. They have a music byte as part of the soothing sound. I wish the company just added a simple beach tone rather than adding an instrumental flair in there. It’s distracting!I was going to return it due to these issues but the seller never contacted me back for my return even though it was with in the return period. I would give them 1 Star for their Customer Service. Guess what it just sits on the dresser looking cute instead

  278. Morgen McDowell (store manager)

    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.

  279. Colleen (store manager)

    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!

  280. JohnJohn

     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.

  281. 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.

  282. bonnylene

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

  283. 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.

  284. lugar kane

    Was a gift they liked it a lot

  285. 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!

  286. 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

  287. Christy Granger (store manager)

    I love the ocean waves. If the kids didn’t like it so much I would use it to sleep.

    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.

    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.

  291. Heather W. (store manager)

    LOVE Cloud B products!! I got this for my 3-yr-old with Sensory Processing Disorder to use during meltdowns to help her calm down. We are also using it at night and at nap time to help her settle down for sleep. She loves it and so do I!! It’s very relaxing to watch and listen to. I just wish it had a switch like the Sleep Sheep to be able to run for 45 mins as opposed to just the 23 minutes.

  292. RM (store manager)

    Our daughter wanted a night light and remembered the one she used to have. With my wife’s help our daughter picked this one and loves it. The plastic shell covers the entire back so is not as cuddly as I thought a child’s night light would be. I wished it had a dimmer as it is bright when the room is dark such that I block some of the light with a sheet or blanket or stuffed toys. The music was soothing to our daughter and she would ask me to sing her a lullaby to it. Volume controls were easy to use and allowed for an appropriate low volume .

  293. Susan Thompson (store manager)

    I got one of these for a special little girl, and one for my husband and myself because it looked so cool! The recipient LOVES it, but she also wants to carry it around all day and gets upset that she can’t see the light on the ceiling in the day time, lol. We really like ours for falling asleep. My only gripe is that the wave action display is jerky, which might not bother some people, but made my OCD flare up. I wanted it to be a smooth rolling motion, and the fact that it wasn’t was slightly annoying. I just try not to look too hard. The ocean sound is my favorite, but children will probably love the music. Note that this soothing music is a very short, repeating sound byte, which is why I prefer the waves alone.

  294. PR. Faul (store manager)

    I am tempted to take this little turtle for myself. The way the lights play on the ceiling and walls it feels like you are floating in the water; and paired with the calming music and sounds of waves, I’m pretty sure this is a winner! My 7 month old son watches the reflected lights as he falls asleep and likes to slap the shell when he’s playing with it. The turtle itself can be a little pricey, but it’s worth it (in my opinion). I like it better then the Twilight Turtle, which I also have. Don’t get me wrong, the Twilight Turtle is great, in fact I turn them on together at night; I just happen to like the Tranquil Turtle better.

  295. 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.

  296. 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.

  297. 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.

  298. 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!

  299. 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!

  300. 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.

  301. Reader, Tx (store manager)

    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 ……. 🙂

  302. R.M (store manager)

    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 .

  303. Dhaverland1 (store manager)

    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.

  304. HumblePie78 (store manager)

    UPDATE: Broke within one year! It cost $50 which was outrageous to begin with, but it broke within one year. One of the batteries leaked acid inside and replacing them no longer works. I contacted the seller and they told me all batteries leak, and to try to repair it at my own health hazard. No replacement.Will not be recommending this product as it is overpriced, potentially dangerous for kids with the battery leaking, and the seller does not care about the consumer.——————————–My 20 month old was so excited when she got her new big girl bed and this turtle to keep her company in the bedroom at night. It is wonderful that it has a brightness knob so you can change the brightness – it can get pretty bright if your toddler is staring straight into it. I keep the volume and brightness pretty low. The pattern is hypnotic and beautiful for parents to watch too. There are two songs to listen to: ocean sounds, and a nice melody. I prefer the melody. My daughter loves her turtle so much she gives him kisses. I would definitely buy this again, even though it’s a bit expensive, because it’s well made and darling.

  305. Hawk eye (store manager)

    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!

  306. Meg (store manager)

    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.

  307. 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.

    I bought this because our family was lucky enough to experience it while staying at a friend’s house. We bought one shortly thereafter and noticed the wave moments were not as fluid and in fact moved with a jerk every time the mechanism went to one side. Not very relaxing! When I next was at my friend’s house, I noticed how much more solidly built hers was: thicker plastic, fluid motion. So interesting because I believe her model is one of the first generations of this item. So there you go. They used to better built and cost half as much! If we’re going to pay this much can we at least not have compromised quality ? Grrr

  313. J. Apuzzo (store manager)

    I thought the projection of the water effect wouldn’t be great. I tried looking up youtube videos to see how it would look, but all videos were unable to capture the effect with their camera. I took a chance and bought it and the outcome was wonderful! The water projection goes far and wide and looks beautiful!!! Even the shell looks stunning. It doesn’t look cheaply mass produced like most toys…It looks like they really took the time to make this item look as neat as it does ! I bought this for my (adult) boyfriend who has insomnia and anxiety issues and it completely puts him to sleep! Great for children and adults!

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.

    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.

    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 .

    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

  318. 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.

  319. 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.

    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!!!

  321. 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.

  322. ZOeH

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

  323. 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.

  324. CChampagne (store manager)

    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.)

  325. Ali (store manager)

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! The turtle is wonderful. The wave effects and ocean sounds are very soothing. The automatic timer is great, although I wish it had options. It has one set time. We are, usually, able to put our one month down while still awake and he ‘puts himself to sleep’ when we have this on. He is currently sleeping in our room, and my husband and I find it very relaxing as well. When our son moves into his nursery, we are planning to buy a second for ourselves. I am not one to buy ‘non-practical’ baby items, this was one of the few things I decided to splurge on and I am very glad I did.

  326. V. (store manager)

    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-

    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.

  328. Jennifer S. Orin (store manager)

    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.

  329. bamaj20 (store manager)

    LOVE it. It’s now a nightly fixture for my son! Battery lasts for a few months with nightly use. I’ll take it. My son and I both love this! Beautiful light, really nice music.

  330. Jess (store manager)

    My daughter had one of these turtles for about 5 years and loved it. It recently stopped working, so I ordered a new one. Unfortunately this one doesn’t seem to want to stay lit up. I am disappointed in the quality.Maybe I happened to get a bad one? But my daughter is sad about it..

  331. Jesse F (store manager)

    I bought this for my new born daughter to work as white noise and also a night light. I am pretty impressed with the amount of light this thing puts out. If you look directly into it at night you might see stars for a few seconds. The ocean noise is quite nice and has soothed her a few times. Once or twice I’ve caught her staring at the “waves” on the ceilings but for the most part she doesn’t seem to like or dislike it. Too young I guess right now but I am sure she will enjoy it more later.The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it has a 15 minutes or so timer that you can’t adjust. It will always turn off in 15 minutes. I understand that since it is battery powered that is to conserver energy in case you forget to turn it off but I would like an option of 15/30/45/60 minutes for this.That being said I would still recommend it to others.

  332. Customer (store manager)

    The love affair between Tranquil Turtle and myself (and my baby of course) is real!!!!!! Since birth we have been playing the soft, soothing sounds of tranquil turtle for him at night time. My husband says he can easily fall asleep from the sounds himself! I can’t describe the beauty of the 2nd sound (press the music button twice for my favorite) except for complete peace, calm and tranquility! The first sound is of the ocean, and when we took my son to the beach for the 1st time we told him “this is tranquil turtle in real life!” My mom even bought one to keep at her house. So why the 4 stars then? The light mechanism isn’t good. It stopped working after 3 months of use so now we only have sound. Doesn’t matter if I change batteries, it’s a no-go on the lights.

  333. Navem (store manager)

    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!

  334. Susie Callahan (store manager)

    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!!

  335. mangal (store manager)

    Awesome product. quick delivery. Works fantastic. My LO loves it when I turn it on in the night. The blue light with a little ocean sound in the background sure is calm and soothing. The only downfall is that to change the battery I have to use the tiny screwdriver to open the panel to replace the battery which can be time consuming sometimes.

  336. Gioco (store manager)

    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.

  337. Brendan Shaw (store manager)

    The sounds the Tranquil Turtle makes are very pleasant. The visuals are great. For purely mood-setting and sleepy time, I’m not aware of any better product. NOTE: I found there was not enough light produced to perform tasks that involve reading or writing (maintenance of baby’s daily feeding log, for example). It’s a soft blue light, not a soft white light, so just bear that in mind. This night light is for relaxing times only. Been using it two weeks, so can’t speak to durability or battery life yet.

  338. 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.

  339. 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.

  340. 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.

  341. Ren B

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

  342. 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.

  343. 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.

  344. Erica C.

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

  345. Lee K (store manager)

    If you want this, buy it. You will not be disappointed. Initially I thought it was a little pricy but I love it so much now, I don’t care. I bought it for my toddler to take on a beach vacation but I think I like it more than her.Several things make this great:Most ocean projectors are flat on top, but because this is a turtle shell it is a half dome and projects all around, not just flat on the ceiling. The first time we turned it on in a standard hotel room it filled the whole room – walls and ceiling!Because it’s a battery powered and doesn’t need to be plugged in it is super portable. Easy to take on trips.There are two sound settings – ocean sounds and music with ocean sounds. Both are great.It turns itself off after approx. 20 minYou can adjust both the brightness and the volume.I love this little guy so much. I even bought one for my mother who wanted one for herself and uses it even when the grandkids aren’t visiting.

     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.

  347. Beth K. (store manager)

    The lights and music from the Tranquil Turtle are amazingly relaxing. The waves are very soothing, and project well on a medium sized room. The ocean sound is nice, and the music is very peaceful. Where this poor turtle falls short is the timer. Cloud B is very optimistic about how effective their product is if they think a child will fall asleep in 23 minutes. My 5 year old is just getting relaxed, and when the lights go off she wakes up a little bit more. It’s also frustrating that when you turn it back on you have to reselect all your previous settings (choose music or ocean, volume, etc.). I want to love this adorable little guy, but it just doesn’t work for us.

  348. Emily (store manager)

    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.

  349. Kayla Cummings (store manager)

    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!

  350. Amazon Customer (store manager)

    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

  351. 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.

  352. 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

  353. 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.

  354. 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.

  355. 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!

  356. 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.

  357. Dmitri Popov (store manager)

    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??

  358. Mr. Mud Maker (store manager)

    Tranquil Turtle is awesome. I love the ocean sound in conjunction with the lights moving across the ceiling. It is seriously relaxing and I enjoying keeping it in my room. The kid will have to wait for me to get him another one. He does like it though (he is only 3 weeks old but he acts like he likes it and doesn’t fuss!)It is worth the price. Compared to the knock-offs and cheaper versions (Summer brand) this thing is miles above. It plays for about 23 minutes then shuts off. I wish there was a button that cycled times. In 2013 that isn’t asking to much. Other than that complaint and the fact that the music version of the ocean repeats way to often for me to listen to it, I don’t know if a child would be annoyed by it but I would be. I just love the lights with the ocean and he is awesome and soft.

  359. Jenn (store manager)

    I bought this for my 3 month old and I didn’t really notice if it helped her go to sleep or not since she was already going to bed on her own. I enjoyed it though at nights when I’d go in to nurse her and the lights would be enough that it wouldn’t wake her up and it was comforting to me as well. Even my 2 year old loves her ‘baby sissy’s turtle” and so now sometimes to bribe her at nights that she isn’t very sleeppy I tell her she can watch the turtle’s waves and off to sleep she goes. I also really like it!

  360. Sierra Griffith (store manager)

    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.

  361. 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 🙂

  362. 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.

  363. 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!!

  364. 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!

  365. 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.

  366. 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.

  367. Tammy Scalfaro (store manager)

    This is actually the fourth turtle I’ve purchased. My grandson has had one since he was 2. His was lost and he could not sleep without it so we replaced it and he had it for 5 years before we had to buy a new one. Plus I bought one for my granddaughter. Love this product! My grandson has CP and he has seizures throughout the night and his turtle helps him to sleep. Priceless!

  368. JD (store manager)

    My 3 year old loves this. He turns the light and music on every night when he goes to bed. The buttons are large enough and placed well that he has no trouble operating it himself. I like that the volume button is hidden by the battery compartment so that he can’t make it louder on his own.My only complaints would be how fast the batteries are used and that the light is pretty bright if the turtle is right next to their head.

  369. Maureen M (store manager)

    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!

    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!

     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.

  374. 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.

  375. 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…

  376. LeLapin (store manager)

    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.

    We have only had this for just a couple of days, and my son loves it.. He has autism, so we wanted something that would help to calm him during bedtime… The waves are absolutely beautiful, the music peaceful, and he is even able to push the buttons himself… The only reason I gave it a 4, is that we have only had it for such a short time, so far so good!!

    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.

    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.

    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-

  382. 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.

  383. 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.

  384. 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.

  385. Jorge Rojano (store manager)

    A little bit expensive for what it is. But it is an excellent gift for a little girl

  386. Frances (store manager)

    I gave it as a gift so the parents liked it and sent a picture of the baby enjoying it.

  387. Jerry (store manager)

    My grandson has one in his room. Sometimes he is too keyed up to sleep. He loves the beach, Turn it on and the ocean sound and waves relax him. Bought one for my house so his could stay home.

  388. 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

  389. margaret hart (store manager)

    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

  390. Sarah (store manager)

    This thing is great for teaching your baby it is night time. I turn on the song and now he knows it is time for bed. I also use it for night feedings and diaper changes and he understands that it is still time to sleep. I would give it 5 stars but the volume button never worked. It also eats batteries. The song will still play but the light flashes and that is not very relaxing.

  391. 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 😉

    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!

  393. 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.

  394. Joey (store manager)

    Good quality construction, baby likes the lights. Don’t use the sound features, so can’t comment on those. Biggest drawback is the price, doesn’t quite provide the bang for the bucks required to purchase. Still, 4 stars for quality.

  395. W. Murphy (store manager)

    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.

    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…

  397. Blake Peterson (store manager)

    Bought this for our 1 year old son. The turtle is adorable and the waves that it projects are so real and soothing. I wish we bought this way sooner when we were sleep training him and getting him to sleep in his own crib. The music is nice and I actually like that it only has 2 sound choices, makes it easy.The only thing that I don’t like is that the buttons are on the shell and he will accidentally turn it off when he has it in his crib. If you put it on your child’s dresser that’s not a problem though. It would also be nice if it came with an option to plug it into the wall so it could be on all night – only lasts about 40 minutes

  398. Rebecca C. Griffin (store manager)

    I got this for my baby girl when she was born for white noise. Pros: the pattern it emits on the wall/ceiling is cool and the sounds are soothing. Cons: she is currently too small to really see the patterns yet (but I’m sure she’ll enjoy them later) and the sound turns off kind of quickly to me. The other con is that there are only two or three volume choices, and I don’t think it’s quite loud enough. Cute turtle though!

  399. Alvaro (store manager)

    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.

  400. Melanie (store manager)

    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.

  401. Amanda B. (store manager)

    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.

  402. caligirl2013 (store manager)

    This turtle was a great purchase. First off the we received the shipment within a couple days, was surprised to see it that soon! I love the color of the light that projects off the ceiling, its the same color as the turtle. I like that the timer goes for twenty minutes and then turns off, you can use the music and the light or just the light option. Our baby stares at the light that surrounds her room with the soft melody of the ocean, and it puts her to sleep within about 10 minutes every time. Its perfect for her to concentrate her time on it, she doesn’t even notice my absence from the room. The turtle is so peaceful that I could fall asleep watching the waves on the ceiling as well. Worth the money, its a cool item!

  403. CJB (store manager)

    This little guy is a great tool to calm a hysterical baby in the night. Sometimes too bright but I just cover the light with a burp cloth and turn the music on. It would be nice if it were an option to have just music and no light. I love that it has volume control and the music really is soothing, I enjoy it myself!

  407. Eugenia

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

  408. 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!

  409. B. Riley (store manager)

    We got the turtle for our 1-1/2 year old. He loved it from the beginning, but the motion feature stopped working after 6 months. I thought it may have been due to rough treatment, but after contacting CloudB they sent a replacement under warranty. The second turtle’s motion stopped after 3 weeks. I emailed CloudB again and they sent another replacement turtle which we still have now. The motion feature stopped working on this one as well after about 1-1/2 months. We have given up requesting replacements, since it leaves my little one without his favorite nighttime toy for a couple of weeks. He still likes it without the motion, and on the positive side it consumes less battery when you turn the motion off. If we had to do it over again, we would have ordered the Twilight turtle like my older child has. It is bullet-proof (still going strong after 3+ years).

  410. Fitfirefighter (store manager)

    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! 🙂

  411. book lover (store manager)

    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.

    I discovered the Tranquil Turtle when my twin grandsons were born last summer and my daughter received one as a gift. I had heard sound machines before but I was particularly taken by the visual component of this one. I have trouble meditating and found that the changing wave patterns provided a visual meditation while the wave sounds (there is also a musical option) create a soothing white noise. The combination makes it possible for me to tune out of my normal state of mind and rest my brain in a meditative state. I use it both during the day if I need to and at night to help fall asleep. My one wish is that it ran a little longer before shutting off, but the auto shut-off feature is a good one. I don’t have to retrieve consciousness in order to turn it off to save batteries…

  413. Bretsmama (store manager)

    I ordered 2 of these for my children, 1 purple and 1 aqua. When I turned them on to test them I noticed that on the sound option button one turtle when you hit the sound button it turns on the ocean then when you hit the button again it switches to music then when you hit the button again it turns off. On the other turtle, you hit the sound button and the ocean sound turns on you hit the sound button again and the sound turns off, then you hit the button again and the music turns on then you hit the button again and it turns off. My concern is why the 2 are different, and 1 might be wired wrong, I’m not sure which one. And I hope if it’s wired wrong that it doesn’t quit working shortly after my children start using them, for the price they are too expensive for me to replace. I would like to hear from future reviewer whether there sound button goes ocean, music, off or ocean, off, music, off.

  414. Amazon Customer (store manager)

    It’s cute. The water motion instead of the moon and stars is pretty cool looking. Big cons for us is:- It only stays on for twenty something minutes.- It’s battery operated only, and the battery drains pretty quickly if you are using it every night. (recommend finding one with an adaptor)- The water motion is glitchy. At least ours is. It’ll work fine for a week or two, and then it’ll stop moving all together. We have to tap the turtle to restart the motion, and that only works sometimes.My oldest son has one like this accept it’s the blue turtle with the moon and stars, it has the adaptor plug, and I believe it stays on for more than 30 minutes. He loves its.

  415. 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!

  416. 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!

  417. Jessica Hamilton (store manager)

    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

  418. E. Greve (store manager)

    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.

  419. Momof4 (store manager)

    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.

  420. Amber Meyers (store manager)

    I bought this for my young son as a night lite over the traditional version. We’ve had this for around a year now and I noticed that not that long ago, the music part stopped working. However, the lite it gives off is still nice and my son enjoys it.

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!
