Shushybye Book & CD Review + {Giveaway} (CLOSED)





Sleep. That's one thing that we all want our children to do. It's a relief when they are snuggled down each night safe and sound in their beds. I don't know about you, but bedtime can be one of the most stressful times of our day. It should be the opposite. But the truth is that most kids fight sleep.





If you're like me, I'm always looking for ways to help my son sleep better. Enter Shushybye. Shushybye offers children's entertainment to prepare them for a restful night's sleep. They aim to help children look forward to bedtime. Now that is a concept I really like!



Shushybye products span from CD's, DVD's, Bedtime Storybooks, Sleepwear and more. Shushybye is geared towards toddlers and preschoolers. It's an imaginative world of dreamland. From the publisher "Shushybye is the original dream-themed entertainment brand for preschoolers, encompassing a national television series on BabyFirstTV and Comcast Video on Demand, a series of bedtime storybooks from St. Martin's Press, music CD's from E1 Entertainment (formerly Koch Records), toys and plush dolls, DVD's from PBS Video and sleepwear."





We got the chance to check out the "Shushybye Sleepover Surprise" book with CD and the "Close Your Eyes" CD. "Shushybye Sleepover Surprise" is a fun, imaginative, adventurous book about the Shushies in the Land of Shushybye and two children who come to visit them in their dreams. Shushies are little people/creatures who make children's dreams come true. Zeez, Dozie, Snoozles, and the other Shushies help Leo and Leona have a great time in their dreams.


The book was great. My son loved it. He has a great imagination himself, so this was right up his alley. The first few times I read the book, I had trouble with all the names. Zeez, Dozie, Snoozles. While create and cute, they become tongue twisters when you're reading them altogether and over and over. It did get easier after the first few times, though. And now my son knows who all the Shushies are by name. The book also comes with a CD inside. The CD features the story and 3 songs- Shushybye Theme Song, The Shushybye Lullaby, and Shushybye Blues.


The CD "Close Your Eyes" features The Shushybye Dream Band. The songs it includes are Feels Like Magic, It's a Shushy Day, Pillow Park Rock, Beyond the Stars and Past the Moon, Shushybye Boogie Tonight, Who's Makin' Dreams, The Snort and Wheez Theme Song, The Shushybye Blues, Close Your Eyes, Send Your Dream Wish, and It's Evening. Zachariah loved the CD. He listens to CD's each night as he falls asleep. This one is perfect for that.





If you think this is something that your kids will love, be sure to check out their website www.shushybye.com. There are so many great things on the site. There is a place where you can e-mail your children's dreams to the Shushies, and the Shushies will e-mail back. You can also meet all the Shushies and see the different products they have to offer. The Shushybye Dream Band is touring now, so you can also look for their tour dates near you on the site.
