Shushybye Sleepover Surprise {review + giveaway}

Bedtime is often looked forward to, and not just by me. It's because of our nice little routine we have.






Both my girls love to read. Ella especially has mastered the "one more book" plea, and we're always hunting for new and fun bedtime books. Welcome the Shushybye crew!






At Shushybye, they strongly believe in the importance of the bedtime ritual, and that it should be a positive opportunity to connect with kids. Healthy sleep = happy kids. The concept behind Shushybye is world of dreams and imagination to get kids to look forward to bedtime! YES!!



We absolutely loved the book! The story weaved a whimsical tale of two kids at a sleepover at Grandma's. They are transported to the wonderful world of Shushybye, where they meet the Snoozles. It's such an imaginative world, my daughter was glued to the story, and asks for it every night! (It also has a really neat glow in the dark cover that she loves!) They also include a little CD with accompanying songs from the Shushybye Dream Band!




Their Close Your Eyes CD is filled with a soft rock and roll feel that is a perfect wind down to a busy day! We loved it too!


Where have I been? The Shushybye Dream Bands performs and is on tour! How fun! And you can attend in your jammies! Shushybye is also broadcasting an all new series called Shushybye Baby on BabyFirst TV and is available on Comcast Video On Demand. All books, videos, CDs, and even pajamas are availible to purchase at The Shushybye Shoppe, or at retailers like Amazon.


The thing I love the most is that it is taking a usually dreaded time and turning it into something positive, for both parents, caretakers, and children! It's a win win!


Shushybye is so passionate about their mission of spreading a happy bedtime, they're offering a reader of The Ivy Twines a copy of the Shushybye Sleepover Surprise book! Yay!

  7. They have a show on XM - "XM Satellite Radio (which airs the nightly ‘Shushybye Show On XM KiDS)". We love the Kids channel on XM radio but listen to it mainly in the morning on he way to work. Maybe some trip we will get to listen to it at night and hear this show.

    This company sounds fantastic!

    I learned:
    Headed up by lead singer Michael North, The Shushybyes includes live musicians and Shushybye characters that combine to present a music and fun-filled concert designed for toddlers, preschoolers and their families.
