The Tranquil Turtle is, in my opinion, the most beautiful Cloud b product we have reviewed so far.
One of the most serene places to be is underwater. I remember as a child I would often sit underwater in our backyard pool looking up to the sky, the sun shimmering down through the surface of the water creating a wavey, shimmery wonderland above me. I felt safe and calm, and like the world was moving in slow motion. Magical. Serene. Still.
I showed the Tranquil Turtle first to my husband, and he was as taken as I was. It combines both sight and sound features — projecting an underwater effect with a gentle wave motion, and playing the soothing sounds of the sea. My husband grew up in Fremantle, so the beachy Sundays and walks along the ocean edge were a huge part of his life. His reaction to the underwater projections and ocean sounds? “Wow, that takes me back! Can we keep it”? :)
I’m in absolute agreement. This one is staying in mum and dad’s room…right after I convince my kids to let me have it back. ;) After oohs and ahhs and a request for a story about, “the time we went to the beach Mum”, it has very quickly soothed them both to sleep. I plan to sneak in later tonight and smuggle it back to our room. ;)
The Tranquil Turtle is definitely one for the ocean lovers – young and old (hang on, I’m not old…let’s say for the young and the younger)! Everyone could use a little help to relax, wind down and bask in a little serenity (particularly at bedtime), and this is definitely my personal favourite of the Cloud b products for doing just that.
