Is your little one fussy at bedtime? VTech Baby’s Soothing Slumbers Bedtime Bear will help lull her to sleep with its soft, plushy fabric and an array of calming and tranquilizing tunes.

The Bedtime Bear, geared to ages newborn to 2 years, plays lullabies when the button on her tummy is pressed and stops automatically after 10 or so minutes (or before then if the button is pressed twice). Forty-seven comforting sing-along songs, melodies, sounds and phrases are included so baby never gets bored.

There’s a volume-control button (by the battery compartment), and a soft, pulsing red light to help soothe baby.

Currently selling for under $15 at Amazon, the Bedtime Bear, which runs on two AA batteries (included), makes a great shower or new-baby gift. Buy it here.
