I was really excited to be asked to do a review of Tranquil Frog, from Cloud B. Tranquil Frog was an item that was on my baby registry that I didn’t receive and never got around to purchasing.
Tranquil Frog will turn any room from darkness to feeling like a serene seaside retreat even for the smallest imagination.
Tranquil Frog‘s main function is a light projector, casting mesmerizing wave patterns on the ceiling in a green lilypad glow. It is like looking at the waters reflection from a swimming pool or the ocean. This picture doesn’t do it justice but it gives you an idea of how it works.
The projection can either remain still or can move to act like moving waves in a pool or ocean.
Tranquil Frog can operate in silence but also has two audio modes: an ocean wave sound effect and a tranquil melody with the sound of seagulls.
The machine is easy to operate so you can switch modes in the dark: push once for ocean waves, twice for the melody, and a third time to go back to silence.
The age recommended for tranquil frog is 6 months to 24 months. My daughter is 6 months old and LOVES her tranquil frog but so far I have found that instead of putting her to sleep she lays awake and coos at the frog and watches the waves on the ceiling. I know every child is different so your results may be sleep from your child like intended but I figure shes not crying in her bed so the little frog did his job and that makes me a happy momma.
Tranquil Frog does have an auto shut off timer. After 23 minutes he will shut off on his own so that you do not have to disturb your child to turn it off yourself when they are sleeping or in my case when she is utterly relaxed and ready to go to sleep.
Tranquil frog comes with a small story book and adoption certificate that older toddlers and children will enjoy.
Tranquil Frog really lived up to my expectation for a sleep aid for my child and if you run into the problem I have and your child likes him too much I really enjoy using it myself. I normally have a really hard time falling asleep without the TV on but when I’ve used the frog myself I’m usually asleep within ten minutes of turning him on.
I highly recommend if you need to try something to get your little one to sleep that you give Tranquil Frog from Cloud-B a try.
