Fisher Price Soothe and Glow Seahorse

This is, without doubt, the most simple yet effective toy that I have come across. When we were sent the Seahorse to review, I set to work on it straight away, giving it to Beanie Boy as he lay down in his cot at bedtime. Immediately, he reached his hand out and laid it on the glowing chest of the seahorse, smiling. I walked out of the room and closed the door behind me wondering if it would actually encourage Beanie Boy to sit up and play but it didn’t, within minutes he was snoring his little head off.

Land of Golden Sleep - Beanie Boy

Occasionally in the night, you will hear Beanie Boy shuffling around, and then the music starts as he has squashed up against his seahorse, cuddled him or simply pressed on his big yellow chest, but within minutes, he is always sleeping soundly again. Every night, when we lay Beanie Boy down to sleep, he reaches his hand out to his Seahorse and falls asleep with his hand on the Seahorse’s glowing chest and a big smile on his face. In fact, I have been so impressed with the seahorse that I gave one to a friend of mine for their little boy and he loves it too, they even named it after me – how cool! They said that A gets so excited when he sees his seahorse and gives it a big cuddle when he gets his hands on it.


The seahorse has a really cute face with big round eyes, which I think attracts babies, and the fur is super soft and cuddly. The big yellow tummy is made from a very soft rubber material and has a big heart on the front. The yellow is perfectly sized to be a target for babies to reach out to and press to be rewarded with a soft glow, soothing music and relaxing sea sounds. After 5 minutes, the music and the lights gently fade. To keep everyone happy, the Fisher Price Soothe and Glow Seahorse comes in blue and pink and can be given to a baby from birth, so it would make an ideal first gift. It includes eight lullabies and power/volume control for quieter play.
