Review: Cloud b Tranquil Frog and Twilight Buddies

August 8, 2015

I was fortunate to be given the chance to review both the Could b Tranquil Frog and the Alligator Twilight Buddies. I have an 8 month old who is not the best sleeper around and a 2.5 year old who is newly completely off her soother. I have been able to use both products for about a week and a half now.  See my review below


Tranquil Frog



Tranquil Frog is a multi-sensory plush night light, sound soother, and calming companion all in one. Based on pediatric sleep research, Tranquil Frog combines soothing sights and sounds to help your little one fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. With the touch of a button, Tranquil Frog projects a magical underwater light effect with a gentle wave motion and plays either white noise or a soft lullaby to help ease children to sleep.

When I heard I would be reviewing the two Cloud b products I was excited. Like many moms I’m always looking for things to help us with our bedtime routine that will help both my daughters get to sleep as quickly and painlessly as possible! My 8 month old daughter is still in our bedroom, we are in the process of transitioning her to  her crib in her own room but it hasn’t been going so well!

Once receiving the Tranquil Frog  we set it up in our room and turn it on during naps and bedtime. From the first time we turned it on Izzy was in love with the lights – she was completely mesmerized and calmed by them. One thing we are working on with her is putting her down to sleep awake so she gets used to falling asleep on her own – this wasn’t going too well! However, once we started using the Tranquil Frog this seemed to change – I was able to nurse her and lay her down awake, turn on the Tranquil Frog and leave her. She would lay and watch the lights on the ceiling and this really seemed to calm her down and help her relax and fall asleep.


I also really like the white noise and music options – with a two year old in the house naps/bedtime can sometimes be interrupted by a not so quiet big sister. I found that by turning on the sound Izzy was able to stay asleep for longer and would not wake to the household sounds.

The Tranquil Frog is very easy to use – my 2.5 year old will sometimes set it up for Izzy at nap time. With the push of a button you can turn on the lights. The lights project a gentle wave motion on the ceiling and walls which is very calming – you can also turn the light so it does not move, but still gives the feeling of being under water. You can easily switch between the white noise and song and  I really like the adjustable volume.


For us the Tranquil Frog worked very well with our daughter in helping her get to sleep and stay asleep – and like every mom knows the more sleep your little one can get the better!____________________________________________________________________________________________

I was excited to try out the Twilight Buddy – about a month ago we completely weaned our 2.5 year old from her soother, which she used a every nap and bedtime! Bedtime used to be fairly easy – we would do our routine and send her to bed with her soother and she would fall asleep fairly quickly and would stay in bed. Once we removed her soother she started getting up out of her bed multiple times, knocking at her door – sometimes for hours before she finally crashed. We were willing to try anything to help!


The first night with her new Twilight Buddy we did our usual routine and then we turned on her Alligator Twilight Buddy. The Twilight Buddy has 3 different colours – either blue, green or orange – or you can have it alternate between all 3 colours. Addie’s favorite colour is orange so she asked for the stars to be orange. We then sang Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and I left the room. I was expecting to hear her knocking at her door within a few minutes, but to my surprise I didn’t – she stayed in bed, didn’t get up once and went to sleep quickly. I was completely amazed – it had been a month since we had such a smooth bedtime routine.  We continued to use the Twilight Buddy at bedtime and continued to get the same results.

The Twilight Buddy is very easy to use – a button to turn it on and off with and then a button for each of the 3 colours. I like how the stars will be projected for a long enough time that Addie is asleep by the time they turn off automatically – which is great as I don’t have to try and seek in and turn it off and risk waking her.

Sleep is so important for our growing little ones and I know with our daughters you can always tell by their mood how well or not so well they slept the night before. I would definitely recommend these products to other parents.
