Kids Afraid of the Dark? No Worries Thanks to the One and Only Brobo!
I must admit, I am pretty lucky so far to have three little ones who LOVE bedtime. Sounds weird huh? My kids actually cry to go to bed, and they even go nice and early at around 6:30; sometimes even six! While they do wake up at 6 am the next morning, I am glad I was able to establish a solid routine early on with them. However, if your kids are not as cooperative as mine are in the bedtime department I have a new toy that is sure to soothe them; introducing the Brobo.
What is Brobo?
Ok, so the name Brobo sounds a little funny, but the actual product, and his friends are genius! The one and only Brobo is based on a series of characters from the very educational Brobo books, and cartoons. Brobo, and his lovable plush friends came about from artwork originally created in Toronto. The Brobo “Shine Force” idea was invented in Calgary, and perfected in toy markets across the world. With safety, and superior craftsmanship in mind, Brobo hopes to bring the light of joy to children around the world.
The makers of Brobo, Kim Blair, and Jeff Lai were very generous in sending me a character from their line of Brobo plushes which includes: Brobo, Pep, Dog, Mumu, and Trex. We were lucky enough to receive Trex in for my little 11 month old son. Keeping in mind that this product ships from Canada, I have to say that it arrived quickly, and safely packaged. Inside, we found a large, soft, bright orange Trex Plush with a cute belly.
Our Trex did not arrive with batteries, but that is understandable. We have kids so batteries are a must have in our home at all times. This plush takes three AAA batteries to make his light-up belly work. The battery compartment is inside in back end, and closes with velcro. Trex is designed for ages 18 months and up so we only used batteries for testing purposes, and did not leave them in because my son is very curious. I feel like this product is adorable, and perfect for kids even without his main light features.
My little man loved his Trex plush so much. He is at the age where he throws everything, and that was no exception with this plush! I could barely even snap a good picture of him snuggling it because he wanted to fling him as far as his little arms could throw. It just so happens that he matched his little Trex by dressing in orange, but that only lasted about an hour (kids make huge messes!).
Overall, as a parent I can appreciate the Trex Shine Force Plush Huggable nightlight. I know as my son grows older this toy will be more appreciated, and possibly needed. I would love the get my girls the Pep Shine Force Plush because I know they would love her!
Soft, orange plush that currently stands 13″ tall. To activate his Shine Force light simply swipe his right hand over his chest. There are three modes, bright, dim, and auto off-perfect for sleepy time. This toy requires three AAA batteries which are not included. 18 months +
