You get an idea about a product when the tester can’t wait to rip the box open -so is the case with the My Baby Zoo Sleeptrainer. Momo the Monkey helps remind restless little ones when it’s time to have their eyes opened or closed. Eyes closed – “You should be sleeping”, Eyes open – “Rise and Shine”. Our 3-year-old tester, who fights bedtime daily, was actually excited to jump into bed to sleep. He was thrilled to see Momo’s eyes open the next morning. The Sleeptrainer includes jungle-themed alarm option, digital display and temporary nightlight. $35 at www.mybabyzoo.com.
My Baby Zoo’s new Gus Nightlight (out next week, $22) is the newest addition to this line – a bedtime pal with a sweet dose of added security. Kids just press down and can turn the light on by themselves. The Nightlight uses batteries and 110V LED lights with two bright settings that do not get warm. Available in boy and girl colors!
