Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Puppy – Review

This is a collaborative post.

Lia has never been a brilliant sleeper. As a baby, she didn’t sleep through until she was 7 months old, when I discovered the power of white noise. Since then, she’s been sleeping through most nights, but takes a long time to get to sleep and generally wakes at least once in the evening.

When I was offered the opportunity to review the Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night toy, I was delighted. We’d stopped using white noise over a year ago, but Lia’s sleeping never quite resolved itself. As well as being a cute cuddly toy, the Sleep Tight All Night puppy offers some great solutions for a good night’s sleep.Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Puppy - Review Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Puppy - ReviewLia was delighted when her toy arrived, but unfortunately she insisted on naming it herself. And thus, the Sleep Tight All Night puppy shall henceforth be known as Nigel.Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Puppy - Review

Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night toy – daytime setting

During the day, Nigel is a fun playtime buddy. When you squeeze his tummy, it lights up in green and he talks to you. He comes out with lots of different phrases from telling you he wants to run around to asking for a hug. Lia quickly fell in love with Nigel, carrying  him around with her and chattering away to him.

Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night toy – Nighttime setting

At night or at nap time, I set Nigel’s timer for however long I would like Lia to sleep for. The timer only goes up to 12 hours and if I’m honest I’d like to be able to set it for a bit longer. She’s usually in bed by 7pm and at the weekend I’d like to have the opportunity to con her into staying in bed until at least 8am. We all do it, right?

Setting the timer is easy and I can also select from several soothing sounds that Nigel will make. I like the rain noise, because it’s the same noise we used to use to get Lia to sleep as a baby. Once the timer is set, Nigel’s tummy glows red and he makes the selected noise for 15 minutes. The glow then dims and the sound gets softer for a further five minutes before turning itself off.Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Puppy - ReviewIf Lia squeezes Nigel’s tummy during the night, the dim red light and the low sound will come on for five minutes. Once the timer has reached morning, a green light comes on when she squeezes his tummy. This is Nigel’s way of telling her whether it’s still night time, or whether it’s time to get up.Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Puppy - ReviewI really like this concept and the noise has definitely helped Lia to get to sleep a bit quicker. She tends to nod off within about ten minutes, rather than spending three hours every evening singing The Grand Old Duke of York. Unfortunately, Lia doesn’t want Nigel in her bed in the evening, she’d rather he sat next to her.

But when he’s not in her bed, Nigel is vulnerable to predators. Namely a four year old predator going by the name of Libby. So during the day, Lia and Nigel are inseparable. But at night, Nigel is sleeping with somebody else. On the plus side, Lia can still hear the rain sound which settles her down to sleep. And Libby loves that Nigel will tell her whether it’s morning or not.

So whilst I’m a little disappointed in Nigel’s infidelity, it’s not entirely his fault. And he’s definitely a welcome addition to the bedroom, albeit not to the bed we were anticipating him sleeping in.Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Puppy - ReviewPlease note, Nigel was provided to me (us) for the purpose of a review and I was compensated for my time. All views, opinions and ridiculous names for unfaithful cuddly toys are my own (and Lia’s).

    I always let my son name his own soft toys. I have to be honest, a lot of them are called Mr (insert type of creature) so I’m guessing Mr Puppy or he’ll name it after his favourite of his Nanny’s dogs, which would be Benson.

  2. Tricia Cowell

    My two year old Grandson has some teddies, they are all called Bear. I would call him Edward, the name of my first teddy bear

  3. Farhana

    My kids have already named some of their cuddly toys as Cooper, Elly, Suzy. Ive heard connor been used in their play nowadays so it would probably be that

  4. Phyllis Ellett

    I would go for Duffy, but it is hard to pick a name. Why because he looks like the ‘fir’ around the old 1970’s duffle coats.

  5. Deborah Mackenzie

    I would leave it upto my great niece to name it; but once I asked the 7 year old what she would call a dog and she told me ZOE, so I think that is what it would be named… its also a pretty name dont you think?


    My toddler grandsons would call him Connie after our dog, as that’s what they seem to think all dog’s are called

  7. Niki Marie Wardle

    I would try to think of a name that suits his/her cute and cuddley image, then have it completely ignored by Juliet, my 3 year old who knows everything, while she names it whatever pops into her head! At the moment all girl toys are Sarah and boys Alex

  8. Keri brooks

    Would got a kitten last yr for our daughters xmas. We called her holly now every doll all teddy my daughter seems to get calls them holly seems her favourite name ha

  9. Sarah Red

    I’m guessing would name her which ever friend she has played with at nursery that morning, a choice of Ella, Freya or Mason then 🙂

  10. P Wendy Clayton

    I would call him Barney, my grandson now 5 had a Barney Bear and wants a real dog he wants to call Barney, this dog could be his 14 week old cousins “Barney”

  11. Hayley Colburn

    I would have no say in the matter, my older daughter would most likely name it (even though it would be for my youngest) and I dread to think what she will come up with

  12. Carly Belsey

    My son has his teddy called Jeff and he is 9 now and Jeff is still on his bed for bedtime. If I won this would be my daughter’s, she doesn’t speak yet so my son would name it and he has said Eddie :-0! lol

  13. Karen Laing

    I would call him Snuggles as it’s rather cute just like him.He could become a very special friend to my little grand-daughter who is such a light sleeper.It sounds such a marvellous idea,fingers crossed I may be lucky and her parents can get a night of unbroken sleep !

  14. Michelle Wild

    We would call her Mimi because every pet we ever owned was called Mimi after the character of the first book I owned. I hope that if it is a he he’s not bothered by the rather feminine name.

  15. Alison Johnson

    My Granddaughter would probably call him Doggie! She is at the stage where all things are called by what they are rather than a name. Personally I’d call it Jasper.

  16. Victoria Prince

    I would call him Camo, short for Camomile because it’s such a relaxing sleep inducing thing 🙂 #SleepTightAllNight

  17. rosie

    I wouldn’t get a chance to name it, my daughter wouldn’t let me! She’s probably come up with something as weird and wonderful as all her other ‘friend’s’ names 🙂
