Review and Giveaway: Shushybye Book and Close Your Eyes CD--CLOSED

Who doesn’t need help getting little ones to bed? Help has arrived in the form of Shushybye’s. The Shusybye storybooks, music CDs, sleepwear, toys and plush dolls were specifically designed to encourage preschoolers to look forward to bedtime. Shushies make dreams for children in Shushybeye and followed by the nightly Shushybye Dance in Pillow Park.


I received Shushybye Sleepover Surprise as well as the Close Your Eyes CD by the Shushybye Dream band. The book has a great cover with glow in the dark stars—always a fun way to get the lights off at bedtime! It comes with a read along CD with 3 Shushybye songs. The storyline was about the shushies making dreams for children. It was a nice storyline and my two girls, ages 3 and 5, really enjoyed immensely. The graphics were cute and colorful.  The characters are fun looking and I really like the character plush dolls offered online. My 5-year old said that she liked that the Shushybyes did something nice. We all liked the reading of the book on CD along with the songs that followed the story.




The Close Your Eyes CD was not what I expected. I expected sleepy music, but the first 8 tracks of the CD were fun music, with a night time theme. What is interesting is the variety of musical genres in the songs—from rock to blues to jazz, R&B, Latin and country. I like to expose my children to such diverse music. The last three songs on the CD are lullabies to settle down your little ones.

I thought their p.j. sets were really cute!

For going to bed, usually read them a story, pray, and then stratch their heads for a little bit

Read them a story before they go to bed! Then pat there back a little and they go sound to sleep.

We follow a routine in order to settle down - PJs, brush teeth, read a book, maybe listen to a CD, lights out! Works for us!
