Edit: This takes AA batteries. Not AAA like it says in the description.
Eddie is a bit of a hero in our house. My two year old was going through a sleep regression and decided he wanted mummy there all the time and would cry and cry unless I was with him. He wanted songs to be sung until he dropped off and wanted the light on. He woke up multiple times and stayed up for almost 2 hours then passed out from pure exhaustion. We were all running on empty. I figured let's give this a try. Anything is worth a try at that point.
Our boy was thrilled with Eddie and now when we put it on it takes him just under 5 minutes to be asleep and if he wakes up during the night we switch Eddie on again and our son is out like a light.
We could not be more grateful to Eddie and his creators.
Eddie has three coloured lights and four light settings. Red, green, blue and light show (it runs through the cycle of red, green and blue on a loop, each colour getting about 10 seconds per colour before fading to the next). Red is the dimmest. It's quiet hard to see but if your little one only needs a bit of light then it's perfect. Green is the brightest. We use green at the start of the night and if he wakes during the night we use the blue light as it's a nice in between brightness. It lights up the room pretty well but it isn't enough to keep him awake. It's the perfect amount of light. The stars are clear on the ceiling too.
Timer, the settings are on the battery pack in his tummy. He can be set for 45, 30 or 15 mins. Then there's the off and try me setting.
It has maybe 3 or 4 volume options. We always use the quietest so he has to quiet down to hear it.
Sounds, the first song is my son's favourite and the one he always listens to. I believe it's mocking bird? Not entirely sure. But the other lullaby is nice too. The water running sound is a bit tinny and makes me need a wee, I don't want to see if it makes him need a wee too. The heart beat is nice. It's just my little one thinks it's ghosts. So we don't use that one. I'm thinking when I get paid we will have to get another Eddie incase this one dies on us.
It came with batteries and it was on the try me setting. It takes AA batteries. I bought a 40 pack of them just so I'm prepared for a lot of use. He doesn't actually use it lots though so the batteries that came with Eddie are lasting well so far.
