Zoe and Pam are the latest bedtime pals to arrive in the UK from innovative Danish children’s brand, Zazu. Designed to help parents with the bedtime routine, the clever little penguins feature pre-set melodies including a heartbeat, white noise and waterfall sound, as well as wireless speaker technology, enabling parents to play their own choice of music or children’s stories. They also activate automatically upon baby crying and will begin to play and light up to comfort little ones, helping them to fall back into a peaceful slumber. For older tots, Penguin Pam will also signal when it is okay to get up with a green light, and when to stay in bed a little longer, with an orange glow.
