This is a great toy toy help soothe babies before bedtime but it could just be used as as a cuddle toy during the day too.

Baby cuddles the seahorse and and his belly gently glows and plays 5 minutes of ocean sounds and music. There are 8 different lullabies and classical selections as well as 2 ocean tracks.

After 5 minutes the music fades so as not to disturb babies as they fall to sleep.

Babies can lean on it and skwish it out of shape and it returns back to the right shape again (hence the name).
