I've only had this for a couple days, but my son loves it! I enjoy turning it on during our last nursing of the night; it's bright enough to provide light for me to see (even for a diaper change) but dim enough that it sets a good atmosphere right before bedtime. I also enjoy the timer settings. The lights/stars do not rotate, but the color change feature adds interest. The music/sounds/stories are a little "hoaky" and some are poorer quality, but they're not terrible. I also don't like that the songs/stories/nursery rhymes are not complete; it only plays a couple of lines before moving on to the next one. If you don't like the sounds, and just want the lights, you can turn the volume all the way down.

I bought this specifically for the sound detection feature that is supposed to turn the lights and music on when crying has been detected for 4 seconds. The first night I put my son to bed and turned it on. An hour later he woke up crying. Sure enough, his hippo was on. We rocked and he fell back asleep. A few hours later, he was crying again but no lights or music. And it didn't turn on when he woke up in the morning. Must only work once a night after the initial set up, right?
Well, the next night he woke up crying and hippo didn't turn on. Hasn't actually since the first time we used it. That is why 3 stars.
The music is nice, the "stories" are a couple sentences then onto the next one. The lights are really cute. My son is excited for his "ippo!" And fascinated by the lights on his white toy box and the walls.

I would buy this product again!

Comments about Vtech 1001126 VTech Lil Critters Soothing Starlight Hippo:

I love this Soothing Starlight Hippo. It's has several setting for stories, music, and nature soothing noises. The starlight projection is one of the best I seen so far. Stars change colors or you can choose to leave the stars light off and let your baby enjoy soothing sounds during the day. It also has a timer that starts at 15 mins. and last up to 45 mins. The best thing about Hippo is it's motion sensor. It shuts off with timer and will come back on and continue to play if my baby wakes up, which keeps her calm. My baby enjoys the Hippo and it's starlights and I find she falls asleep easier and happier with her Starlight Hippo.

Comments about Vtech 1001126 VTech Lil Critters Soothing Starlight Hippo:

My baby loves this product and so do I! The stars in the dark are perfect when putting my baby to sleep as he just gazed at them and listens to the music and he is sleep before you know it! There is a also a story time option which I love and a timer so you don't have to sneak back in your child's room and possibly wake them to cut it off.
