Story Stars Bedtime Toy Review & Giveaway

A few weeks ago we were sent a new bedtime toy called Story Stars.  This became a firm favourite with my 2 year old daughter straight away, and is now her favourite bedtime companion.  There are 5 different Story Stars personalities and the one that came to visit us was Luby Lullaby.  She is a magical mermaid fairy who loves to sing. She’s very good at tidying up and loves bedtime adventures.

Story Stars Bedtime Toy Review

This was the perfect match for our two year old, and they became firm friends immediately.  She’s really soft and huggable and loves lots of bedtime cuddles.

We downloaded the free Story Stars app for the iPhone, but it is also available for android phones.  The app contains lots of cool space themed songs and stories perfect for little ones.  We love the Star Princess and Cosmic Twinkles.

You simply connect your mobile device to the Story Stars toy via Bluetooth and upload the stories you want.  When it’s finished the stories are ready to go.  Not only are there lovely soothing stories to listen to but the Story Star toy also projects a starry scene onto the bedroom ceiling or wall in a soft colourful light.

Story Stars review and giveaway

We love this bedtime toy so far and it’s great for settling little ones who want just one more story.  When Mummy has finished she can hand over the reading to Luby Lullaby and our Little Pudding is off to sleep in no time.

It’s also great for those nights when we are solo parenting. While I’m settling one of the girls down, the other will quite happily lay with Luby Lullaby and listen to a story until I can tuck them in.

Story Stars Giveaway

    Laura’s star. Its a bit past it now though as it was my 10 year olds bedtime story book. My 18 month old loves it now too. Fantastic little story with lots of pictures. My oldest had it at least 4 times before she would want to go to sleep each night haha
