Twilight Turtle Tunes T3 Review + Giveaway

Today’s guest post is from my little sister Brandy. Since our littlest turns 3 this month it was time to bring on someone to take over baby reviews. Brandy is expecting her second baby in August and Jax her oldest is 15 months. I look forward to sharing Brandy’s in depth reviews and mama knowledge here on inRdream.com.


Twilight Turtle Tunes T3

My sister just recently introduced me to the Twilight Turtle Tunes T3 and asked if I would be willing to test it out on my son Jax who is 14 months old. I jumped at the opportunity as my son had broke his CD player in his room and has always slept with a night light. It looked like a pretty neat product and covers both a night light as well as a sound option.

First Impression

When we first received it and opened it up Jax was intrigued right away. It looks like a stuffed animal and is light weight; he grabbed the Twilight Turtle Tunes and began exploring it. We turned it on and he began to push some of the buttons showing excitement about the lights that he could see coming from the Turtles shell. We took it into his room and turned off the lights and were able to see 8 different constellations on both the ceiling and walls.

Twilight Turtle Tunes T3 Review

You have 3 different colour options that are projected on the ceiling; orange, blue and green. One setting allows the colours to change, and plays what sounds like crashing waves. The volume is adjustable which is great!

Another great thing about this product is that it came with batteries that last 6 hours and then you can also plug it into the wall. We took it to some friend’s houses a few times as it’s very portable and we didn’t have to worry about dragging a cord along. We just threw it right in his diaper bag!

Bluetooth and App

The Twilight Turtle Tunes also has a Bluetooth option in which you can pair it with your Smartphone. All I had to do was download the free Sound B app and then click the ‘ON’ button twice to connect my phone. The app has built in mixes which you can choose from to play through the Twilight Turtle Tunes. It also has a timer option which allows you to play music for up to 6 hours. From your phone you are able to pause, cancel, restart the timer or even change the mix without going into your child’s room!! How convenient!

Mama Knows Best

The one thing I would recommend is putting the Twilight Turtle Tunes up high on a dresser as it will give off the best view of the 8 constellations. The closer to the ground it is, the more difficult it is to make out the constellations.

” Jax loves this product and it has become part of our routine to turn on the Twilight Turtle Tunes with him every night before bed. We are expecting our second child and are looking forward to using this product right from the beginning without having to use a CD player and night light combination. 

This would make a great baby shower gift and I would recommend it to any parents looking for a night light or sound playing option for sleep time! “

    We read a story, or two to our grandson before bed every night before tucking him in. He can’t settle down until the nightlight is on, he doesn’t like total darkness, so the soft lighting of the Twilight Turtle would be perfect for him.

  34. lisa bolduc says:

    I am a new mom to a 4 and half month old. I am taking all of the tips I can get

  114. Darlene Schuller says:

    I’m a mom to 5 and a gramma to 2 little angels. 2 1/2 month old Saedy and Mayson, forever 10 months.

    My best sleep advice. Don’t keep everything overly quiet. When it’s nearing bedtime start a ‘wind down time’.. lower the lights, no ‘energetic’ activities.. when my children went to bed at 8pm. At 7 pm we’d do bathtime..and after that a snack and quiet time and in bed at 8 and reading time for a bit.

  115. I am a mom. one of my tips is do not put baby to bed with a bottle.

  116. nicolthepickle says:

    Just be patient and they will eventually fall asleep.
    Mom of three.

  117. I like the battery life on it.

  132. Angela Mitchell says:

    I’m a mom to a boy and a girl. My best tip is to put your child in his crib still awake and let him learn how to put himself to sleep. It can take a few weeks or longer but it is worth it!

    When my eldest daughter was born (30 yrs ago on June 30th) I would literally have to take her for a drive or put the vacuum cleaner on for her to fall asleep. Nothing worked at all with her for a while.

  142. Judy C (Judy Cowan) says:

    I love that you can connect it with you phone and don’t have to enter the room to change/restart it.

  143. My daughter had extreme colic and there were two things that worked for a few mins at a time – those were “running the tap” or “running the vacuum.”

  144. My best tip sleep is to watch your newborns sleep pattern and work with them to find a manageable schedule.

  145. Being able to connect my smartphone and choose the songs played.

  146. heidi c. says:

    My best sleep tip is to develop a sleep routine. Ours is bath, teeth, books, snuggles and then lights out. It has been the same since my little guys were born.

  147. I am a Daddy. Best tip for sleep is make a routine and stick to it.

    I like that the Twilight turtle is cute to look at, projects the stars and plays music. Sure to comfort any child at night.

  151. Darlene Schuller says:

    I’m both Mom & Gramma. My best sleep advice .. we always quieted things down .. dimmed the lights… changed into pj’s, brush teeth etc. Always started an hour before bed. Then the remaining time was spent reading or watching t.v or a part of a movie.

  152. a mom, a routine has to be set

  153. Jennifer P. says:

    I’m a mom and my best sleep tip is to get the book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child. A friend bought it for me when I was pregnant with my first baby (because she had used it successfully with her babies), and we used it for both our children and they were/are amazing sleepers. There were such great tips, such as how to recognize when a baby is getting tired (it is much earlier than you think – by the time they yawn etc you are past the ideal time to put them to bed!), how to help babies self soothe etc. I highly recommend it!

  154. I like that it can either be plugged into the wall or it can also use batteries to make it portable.

  155. Courtney says:

    I’m a Mom! The best sleep tip I have is to start a routine as early as possible and to stick with it!

  156. I’m a mom and my best sleep tip is to make sure your kids feel comfortable in their room at night.

  157. Jenness M says:

    Love that I can control it with my phone

  158. anne stewart says:

    I’m a mom to a 20 month old. Let them fall asleep on their own once they are old enough to self-soothe. And use a sound machine! 🙂

  159. I am a mom. I always tried to keep a routine with baby. Bath, book, feed and bed. Now I still use the bath and book even though my daughter is 2. I would love to have one of these for her.

  160. angela m says:

    I like that you can plug it into the wall

  161. i’m a mom and the best way to get a baby to sleep is background music. i love the stars on the ceiling.

  162. Tricia Cooper says:

    The feature I like about Twilight Turtle Tunes T3 is that is also works with batteries making it portable!

  163. nicolthepickle says:

    I’m a Mama. My best tip for getting sleep is keeping the baby close by. That way you don’t have to walk all the way down the hall way to check on them. It give you extra seconds, maybe even minutes to sleep.

  164. I like that you can connect it to your smartphone and choose your own songs.

  165. I’m a mom and I think routine from the start allows them to get their own sleep routine in place!

    I love the Bluetooth (to Smart Phone) option!

  166. I’m a mom, and my best advice is that all babies are different and to do what you think is best.

  167. I love the sense of comfort it brings.

  168. Anne Taylor says:

    My kids always slept better when they had a furry stuffed friend in bed, a nightlight in the room and they loved me singing to them!
