Cuddletunes Bear Review

My four year old son recently became afraid of the dark and would wake up in the middle of the night crying. I recently gave him a Cuddletunes bear and it has made a HUGE difference. In fact, so much of a difference that he actually looks forward to going to bed and snuggling with his new plush “friend”.

What makes his Cuddletunes bear so special to him? This adorable stuffed bear has a personalized programmed soundtrack complete with songs that include his name and a soothing, loving message to him from his mommy to comfort him when he is feeling alone and scared. The Cuddletunes soundtrack is a playlist of special MP3 files that can be changed or updated by uploading and synching on your computer. Your Cuddletunes bear even has the ability for several people to tell stories, prayers, etc. to make it even more personal.

You can see how it works by watching the Cuddletunes video on You Tube.

I love the Cuddletunes design of the bear because it is easily managed by my little guy. He can turn it on/off, adjust the volume and even move forward to the exact songs/track that he wants to listen to. I like that it automatically shuts off at a predetermined time so that once he has fallen asleep it will eventually turn itself off. It is such a joy and a relief to see Jacob fall asleep contentedly to the pretty, relaxing lullabies while clutching his Cuddletunes bear in his arms. I have also noticed that in the middle of the night instead of inconsolable tears, I am awakened to the sound of the Cuddletunes bear singing and Jacob falls back to sleep in his own bed.

Cuddletunes bears ($59.95) are a wonderful gift idea and a keepsake that is sure to be treasured for a long time. It can be purchased as an “activated bear” or a “gift bear”. The website is very easy to navigate and creating your bear is just as easy. You are invited to visit Cuddletunes to determine which option is the best fit for your little recipient. I was very impressed with Jacob’s Cuddletunes bear and it really has made such a difference for his piece of mind at night…..thank you Cuddletunes!
