Tranquil Turtle Review and Giveaway

This is a joint giveaway with Living Peacefully with Children and Natural Parents Network. You may enter at one site only. Please find the section marked “Win it!” for the mandatory entry and optional bonus entries.

Cloud B is offering our readers a giveaway of a Tranquil Turtle, a value of $47.95.

Cloud B’s Tranquil Turtle is a multi-sensory nighttime toy to help your family fall asleep.
From our reviewer, Mandy at Living Peacefully with Children:



Cloud B, a play on the Cloud 9 phrase, was founded in 2002 by co-founders Linda Suh, a mother of two, and Jeff Johnson, a designing extraordinaire. It was their intent to produce a line of products that would help children sleep. In an effort to spread sleep love, the company has been involved with charity projects, including The Great Sprouts Tuck-In program, which provides pajamas and books for children in need, and Max’s Love Project, which helps provide Twilight Turtles for children fighting cancer.

As someone whose mother was a strong children’s literacy advocate and died of cancer, these are both charities I can get behind.

The Tranquil Turtle is as adorable as it is soothing.


The Tranquil Turtle, having won both the 2013 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Award and the 2012 Parenting Toy of the Year, combines a multi-sensory approach to helping your family go to sleep. Subtle lights add an effect much like that of waves under the water, projecting the illusion onto the ceiling and walls. Buttons give you options for no sound, waves, or music along with waves. Both the light level and volume can be adjusted to accommodate different needs. A 23-minute timer automatically shuts off the Tranquil Turtle, preserving battery life. The Tranquil Turtle comes in two colors, Aqua and Ocean.

Buttons are easily accessible to change the light and sounds.

Cloud B has been making products for families since 2002. We had considered purchasing a similar product of theirs, the Twilight Turtle, in the past. After all, having stars projected onto the ceiling sounds like a cool idea. The products always seem to be marketed as being a way to get your child to sleep alone, though. Having a family bed, we had no need to try something to try to get our children to sleep on their own. We opted to pass on the product at that time.

I wasn’t certain what to expect with the Tranquil Turtle, but my children were open to reviewing it. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The first night, after reading from our book, we turned off the light and turned on the Tranquil Turtle. My husband cried out, “What’s that?” — to which my children happily explained that it was the turtle.

While difficult to capture without a flash, the waves have no problem projecting across the room.

The wave-like projections had no problem reaching the ceiling and walls, despite a large bedroom. The motion, which can be turned off if you like, was almost hypnotic. It’s difficult to watch without feeling your eyes want to close. While I am not a fan of the music option, the waves are a pleasant white noise background. I find them to be very soothing.

The second night, the kids had the turtle ready before we even got in bed. We read and then turned off the lights. When the turtle was turned on, my husband asked if this was going to be a new ritual. He was asleep shortly. The next day, he happened to lie down on the bed, and one of the kids turned on the turtle and set it next to him. He was out like a light. That night, he was the one to ask where the turtle was as we were getting the kids ready for bed.
