Our little one loves it, and we do too!

Ever since our baby boy was born (actually way before that!) we’ve been meaning to get him something by LeapFrog: call us crazy, but the truth is that they just make the greatest educational toys for babies and children alike. And the Dreamscapes Soother by LeapFrog has just proved to us why. It consists of several different "tracks" with music and a rotating visual scrolling through the circular window, to soothe the baby at different times of the day. Needless to say that the imaging and sound are gorgeuos, so even grownups can expect to be soothed by it, but tonight it was put to the test by our little one.Tonight, as we were applying the teachings of the book "Healthy Sleeping Habits, Happy Child" we decided to take the ‘plunge’ and let him cry out, so that he could learn to sleep the whole night through. 45 minutes into the exercise he had not stopped crying (and our baby, at 4 months, with his 19 pounds can scream pretty loud) and there didn’t seem to be much of a light ‘at the end of the tunnel’… well, coincidencially, as he turned and was kicking around in his screaming, he hit the button that starts the Soother… and that was it… he went to sleep peacefully. It was unbelievable! I highly recommend it: your baby will love it, and I am sure you and your spouse will too!

A disappointing crib toy

I was given this toy at my baby shower by a relative with young children. I assumed her kids liked this toy and that’s why she’d given us one (I hadn’t requested it on our registry). Unfortunately, our baby has never been interested in this toy. I’m rather surprised because her Leap Frog Learning Seat is one of her absolute favorite things. However, I can understand why she’s not interested in the Dreamscapes Soother. Personally, I don’t find that there’s much to look at – the flat lighted pictures that spin around are nothing compared to the three-dimensional, moving fish and real bubbles in the Ocean Wonders Aquarium (my daughter’s very favorite crib toy). Moreover, the sound of the pictures moving is VERY loud. When we first used this toy (at night), my husband and I wondered if it was broken – that’s how loud and grating the sound was. We figured out, however, that it’s simply the noise of the pictures turning. Unfortunately, to cover up that horrible noise, we found we had to turn the volume up way too loud for sleeping purposes. Overall, I wish I’d kept the box because I am so dissatisfied with this toy that I would return it if I could.

It’s really good!! My daughter loves it!!!

I bought this for my daughter when she was 3 months old… She really love it !!…It’s was very difficult make her to sleep… but the first day that we bought this I turn on the toy on her crib, and when the toy turn off I came to the crib and she was REALLY sleeping….I recommend to use this just one time a day, and when your daughter (son) is sleepy…but if you use it more than 1 time a day, BELIEVE ME, she or he will get tired of it quickly. The only reason that I didn’t put the 5 stars is because the images have poor quality, and now that my daughter is 7 1/2 months, she doesnt like it that much!!

May be better suited for an older baby (?)

I got this toy as a replacement for my Ocean Wonders Aquarium, which started leaking. My son was about 5 months old and he just didn’t seem too interested in the “dreamscapes”. Maybe he was just used to the sounds of the Ocean Wonders Aquarium? The motor is rather loud and in order to drown out the sound of the motor you have to turn the volume up. I started using it without the picture to avoid the loud motor whirring sound. My infant was not interested 🙁 So I got another Aquarium and hung the 2 next to each other in his crib. He pretty much ignored the Dreamscapes Soother until just recently. He’s 17 months now and is in love with it!! I’m really glad I kept it. He has been waking up at 5 am (ughh!) but has been turning on the Dreamscapes Soother and eventually falling back to sleep for a few more hours. He also likes it at nap time. He’ll turn it on and stare at it until he falls asleep (usually no more than 2 minutes!). When he wakes from his nap, he turns it on again and plays until I can get upstairs to him (he used to just scream when he woke up until I came into the room). He waves at the toy and says “bye bye” as I lift him out of the crib. It’s really turning out to be one of his favorites!! So I’d give it 2 stars for an infant (motor is too loud to be soothing), but 5+ stars for a young toddler who is able to play with it.

perfect for the crib and beyond

The songs and stories are so sweet, especially the “What Does the World Look Like” story. As soon as I heard that I knew I had made a good purchase. My daughter no longer sleeps in a crib, but I keep this on a shelf in her room and she turns it on whenever she passes it. I would recommend it to anyone.

My toddler loves it!!

I bought this for my soon to be born daughter and my 25 month old loves this toy. She loves watching the story setting which has her favorite animals.. a lion, bird and whale. She also loves her favorite song twinkle twinkle little star setting. She jumped into bed lastnight and watched it and fell asleep. Also tonight. I am impressed that this has helped so much with her sleeping on her own. I am grateful for this toy!!!

Love this soother!!!

I was having a huge problem getting my son to sleep in his own room. However, when I put the Dreamscape Soother in his crib he would fall right to sleep. Now he sleeps in there all night every night. This product also has a night light and a volume control button which are two excellent items to have at night. Great product!!!

After 13 Months, This Let Us Finally Get Some Sleep

We had been letting my son fall asleep with us in a family bed, but after a year of this… my husband and I decided it was time to at least let him go to bed earlier than we did so that we could have some alone time. Putting him down in his crib (in our room) didn’t work… he’d cry and cry. Enter the Leap Frog Dreamscapes Soother. After about two nights, he stopped crying when being put in his crib… because he was looking forward to the “Goodnight Toes” story. I only wish we had bought this sooner. Thanks Leap Frog!

Only got better 🙂

My mother bought this for my son when he was 2 weeks old. He would stare at it and the light only option was nice to checkon him. I love that it has different songs and options liek story or songs or music. It sounds nice and works great. Now we wake up to it – he wakes up and put it on every morning so we hear that over the monitor. I dont have a bad thing to say about this. It stays on a long time so you dont have to keep pushing it to keep it playing. It turns off nice and easy as well. It is colorful and batteries last while in it. I have only changed then once and my son is now over 6 months old. Highly recommend this item!

LOVE IT!!!!

This item is absolutely wonderful!!! My daughter is now 8 weeks old and we have been using this in her crib since birth. I can lay her down in her crib when she is on the verge of falling asleep and I turn on the “what does the world look like” story and she falls asleep before it is finished. She loves the Twinkle Twinkle little star song and we often play it while I am changing her. I highly recommend this to every parent! It does use up a lot of batteries so keep extra on hand, but it is worth it!!!

BedTime Ritual

Our Daughter has loved this from day one. And once she learned to turn it on herself at about 4 months, we loved it too. She will wake in the night and turn this on rather than call out to us and she is only 9 months old. My only complaint with this item is that it takes C batteries and runs out of batteries extremely fast. I understand she uses it alot but it would be nice to not have to buy batteries every week for this toy.This is a great night time soother.
