  • Non-returnable gift that I rolled my eyes at... ended up being our daughters favorite for the star projection. It would kick on when she was upset at night and soothe her immediately. Must have for us Jul 28, 2019

    My daughter loves it but I hate it. It runs out of batteries so quickly and she learned that it will turn on when she cries so that was a fail! Jul 02, 2019

  • First introduced to this item when fostering two twins. Love that various sound options and the stars that shine! Best part- it lulls baby back to sleep when he wakes up. May 11, 2019

  • Super cute toy. Lights up the room nicely. Only negative is batteries don’t last long at all even using name brand ones. Mar 06, 2019

    We were not a fan of this product. The battery life was really short and it would just cut on and off. Mar 01, 2019

  • Works awesome and has so many different settings Mar 01, 2019

    This is gold. When baby gets overtired and fights bedtime, this hippo is the only thing that I have found that calms her down. it has become a vital part of our bedtime routine! Jan 11, 2019

    My daughter loves looking at the stars. I don't like the nature sounds (it's staticy) and I don't like the woman reading. But the lights are great. Jul 08, 2018

  • My son loved this! Unfortunately he only got to use it a few times and then it would just start skipping on one song and do nothing else Jun 18, 2018

  • I love that it starts to play music when the baby cries! Jun 01, 2018

  • We own two of these. For when ones batteries die we can just turn on the other and replace them in the morning. My son won’t go to sleep without it and it’s perfect for travel. We’d buy 1,000 more. May 23, 2018

  • Saves my nights. The cry detection feature is great. When baby gets up at night and lets out a cry it automatically turns back on and usually clams her. She loves looking at the stars on the walls. May 06, 2018

  • I love this for baby to fall asleep too. Cute lights light up the ceiling, their is a timer, several songs, stories, and melodies to play. You can adjust the volume and set the timer when to shut off. May 03, 2018

  • This is my son's absolute favorite he will not go to sleep without it. It tells stories, sings lullabies, has nature sounds and displays starts and space ships on the walls and ceilings... Jan 24, 2018

  • From the moment my dad brought this hippo over we loved it. It would put our son to sleep quick as an infant as he grew older he loved to push the buttons himself. Must have indeed!!! Jan 13, 2018

  • My son loves looking at the bright colored stars on the ceiling! Variety of sounds & music. I sometimes use storytelling mode when he’s playing, gives him something to listen to. All around great buy! Dec 15, 2017

  • I think this is great for babies under one. Once my daughter got older she kinda lost interest in this hippo. But when she was younger she loved the lights and the music it played Oct 17, 2017

  • Can't get enough of this hippo. Tons of song and stories and the stars that project onto the ceiling are so soothing. This has saved the day many times. Sep 06, 2017

  • I love this cute hippo! It reallt grabs the attention of my 3month old son... Also my husband &mine. Lol the only thing that I was EH about was that when you oush the story mode it tells like 4 short version/cut off stories & plays music.. Like isn't the music mode for that? Oh & it says "husha" insead if "ashes" in the Ring Around The Rosie Lullaby..which is strange lol.. All in all I give a 4.5 Mar 06, 2017

  • Soooo cute!! Love how the stars change colors and its cry activists. We turned the volume down as we have a sound machine she already likes. This does so much though that she can grow into the rest. Jan 28, 2017

    LOVE THIS! wish i could sleep with it. had since my son was 3 months and he is 1.5 now and still loves it. automatically turns on when he cries and you can decide how long you want the songs to sing. Dec 25, 2016

    This has been the only thing helping with bedtime. Our daughter loves lights and this helps put her to sleep with the calming music. Dec 14, 2016
