~ Shushybye ~ Review and Giveaway!



Giveaway has ended!
The winner is miss_kris with number 5!
Pending email confirmation


When nighty-night comes
We close our eyes
To dream our dreams
From Shushybye....

I have personally never understood the appeal of buying CD's of children's music. Most of the music CD's I heard being sold on TV (when we had it) drove me crazy, and my kids practically begged for them! I did end up buying one CD for my boys, but that's it. They seem to enjoy the music I play, so we left it at that.

I received the Shushybye Sleepover Surprise book for review, but I also received the Close Your Eyes book because I won it from another blog giveaway. They are both wonderful books and I decided to talk a little about each of them.

The books each come with a read and sing along CD that is very easy for your child to understand and follow. This is also the first read along that my daughter has had and she has been having lots of quiet reading time with it!


In Close Your Eyes, twins, Leo and Leona stay awake past their bedtime playing and missing out on their dream boxes and Snoozles the Shushy is sent to find out what the problem is. He explains to the twins that when they miss their bedtime, they also miss their Shushybye Dreams! The twins and their parents are then taken on a trip to Shushybye to learn where their dreams come from.

In Sleepover Surprise, Leo and Leona are having a sleepover at Grandmas house and their wish to dream about Shushys Snoozles and Dozie comes true when they get to travel to Shushybye with their Grandma! They meet Rockin' Shushy and learn that you don't need a special occasion to be nice to your friends.

The books both have very cute stories and work quite well in teaching your child the importance of bedtime and helping others! They are also made with safe, nontoxic, glow-in-the-dark covers!



My daughter also loves the Shushybye and Goodnight CD which is a collection of 16 original Shushybye songs! She will play it over and over, and surprisingly enough - it didn't drive me crazy! No squeaky irritating voices, no sounds that make you want to cover your ears and scream. Just music, with a nice fun flow from one song to the next.

My daughter has enjoyed listing to this CD during the day, dancing around and singing along and she has also listened to it while she is going to bed. She does seem to try to stay awake as long as she can at bedtime for this one, just so she can listen to all the songs but it does keep her in bed and most nights she was asleep before it ended. It is quite obvious that my children have been missing out and I will now be getting them more music CD's to have fun with!

The only downside, which is more of a personal thing, is that with the music on my baby wants to go into the bedroom and see what is going on so she ends up keeping my older daughter awake. I should be getting a night light soon, so will be able to see how much better it works with her door closed so her sister isn't bugging her.

See Shushybye live!
