Lullabies I actually like, snu:mee Saves the Night

snu:mee review from A Well Crafted Party #spon

I was sent a complimentary snu:mee to review in anticipation of the crowdfunding campaign to bring snu:mee to the United States. All opinions are my own. To learn more about my policies regarding reviews and sponsored posts please visit my policies page

 

I have a secret. I hate lullabies.

 

Lullabies are ridiculously weird, right? Seriously, the words in most of them make no sense or are things  don’t really want to sing to my sons. We’ve changed a few words around to make them work for our family but, I haven’t found any that I just love to play at night for the kiddos. We recently got a cool little projector for the boys room that came with three lullabies in that general music box sound. While I found it cute at first… about the tenth playing of “Rock-a-bye Baby” and I’m ready to pull my hair out. Of course, my oldest LOVES it and wants to play it all night long.

Enter snu:mee…

 

I found out that snu:mee— a music box, mp3 player and baby monitor all in one that has been popular in Europe— was coming to the states with a Indiegogo campaign I instantly said YES I want to be a part of THAT. The three-in-one wonder currently runs about $139, but can be snagged through the campaign for only $79.

The snu:mee comes with some pre-loaded songs and a store of more music. The songs are popular songs made into a music box lullaby. My son now drifts to sleep to lullaby versions of  “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica and “Yellow” by Coldplay. (No words for these songs, because I’m pretty sure Nothing Else Matters as a lullaby might be just as bad as “When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall, And down will come baby, cradle and all.”) They do have the classics on there if you want them as well. You can also transfer your own music to the snu:mee or even record your voice for your baby.

You can control your music on the snu:mee itself or, using wifi, control it from your phone. Baby getting fussy and you aren’t able to go right away? Turn on the monitor portion or even talk to baby through the monitor to calm him while you get free.

Aging with the snu:mee

 

What do you do with your old baby monitors and music boxes when your baby gets older? The snu:mee grows with your baby first turning into a cuddly toy for an older baby by using a snu:mee sleeve and then use it as a MP3 Player for your older kiddo.

I know that this post screams AD like crazy. But, after listening to my millionth music box version of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star this little thing has been a very welcome new gadget in our household. We carry it around at night as we are getting ready for bed. The older kid loves it just as much as the younger one. And, I’m ready to get rid of the many other gadgets in our baby’s room that perform one function only. Consider this my very enthusiastic goodbye to my old baby monitor and music box.

If you think the snu:mee is right for you and your family then hop on over to support the crowdfunding campaign and snag your snu:mee for a huge discount. If you aren’t quite there yet, but are ready to listen to new music with your kiddos, check out their free app Baby Stars- rock2sleep on iPhone and Android.

What music solutions have you found for you and your family? Love the classics or have you changed things up?

    How cool! I’ve heard the modern music turned into lullabies before but not on this machine. Sounds like a fun solution. We just used a simple white noise machine for our kids, then switched to music on our iPad. I had a selection of soothing Hawaiian music (only because it made me daydream of sunny days and ocean waves 😉
    It did the trick for us!

    That’s so cute!! I always sang You Are My Sunshine to my kids when they were little, but with many changed lyrics. In fact, my kids didn’t know the real full lyrics (which are horribly sad!!) until they were in elementary school, but we still all sing my happier version. I have this weird little hope that someday they’ll sing my version to their kids too. 🙂
