Sea Turtles

The Dirty Shirt is giving away a Cloud B Sleep Sheep (ends Nov. 30th) and Seven Dogs and A Baby is giving away a Cloud B Twilight Turtle (ends Dec. 15th) to one very lucky reader of their blogs.

Cloud B is this great company who is dedicated to helping children of all ages sleep better. They have products ranging from a sheep that makes soothing sounds to the Lullabag, a bag sleeper that is safer than blankets for your baby, to a turtle that projects stars on the ceiling.

My very favorite product of theirs is the Twilight Sea Turtle. It is a constellation night light like their original Twilight Turtle with some very cool differences. Twilight Sea Turtle's beautiful shell illuminates in three soothing colors: Ocean Blue, Emerald Green, or both colors together (creating a kind of Aquamarine). It also highlights five endangered sea friends: the Blue Whale, California Sea Otter, Knysna Seahorse, Leatherback Turtle, and Vaquita Dolphin. It comes with a storybook that teaches children about each of the endangered sea animals, a helpful star guide, and an adoption certificate. A portion of the proceeds from buying a Twilight Sea Turtle will be donated to an international conservation organization.

Sea turtles are so cool! I love the sea turtle, Crush, in Finding Nemo. He was my favorite character in that movie. Disney is going to do a coaster named Crush's Coaster for one of their parks. It is the making and soon to be "turtally awesome". I hope to "Grab shell dude!" and try it out when it is done. My other favorite part of that movie was of course Dory speaking whale.

If you are ever in Georgia stop by the Georgia Sea Turtle Center in Jekyll Island, Georgia. It looks like fun! Visitors can explore exhibits on sea turtle conservation, rehabilitation, and their amazing journey from egg to adulthood.
