As a special education teacher this was one of the best gifts I have seen. My son got it for his 1st birthday. Beware it will create an obsession with reading. Love this and the memories it's making.

We got our 3 year old grandson the dream machine and 3 additional packs. Since then we have purchased 3 more of the story packs. He is in love with them and it helps to wind down in lowlight just before bedtime. Highly suggested. Our baby has some audio sensatory issues and this toy is calming and soothing. Im sure it adds to his nice dreams!

Not Durable

I wish this product was more durable. My toddler had dropped it once and now it doesn't work properly. A few of the little books only work for a little while and then the light turns red and the story turns off half way through.

It takes a long time to “rewind” the cassettes, once they are rewound it will start playing the story, but if interrupted, it has to rewind the entire tape again and will start over at the very beginning. Between each slide of the story there is a long pause while it winds to the next slide, the machine seems to struggle with this and makes the projector go out of focus each time it goes to a new page of the story. The angle of the projector is not adjustable so this limits where it can be positioned and its usefulness. Also icing on the cake, the story is out of synch from the slides, so what it’s reading does not match what’s being projected (there are words on the page as the machine reads them, so it’s obvious they’re not synchronized). Overall, really disappointed. Opened it today for our son’s birthday and am looking for the packaging so we can return it.

I bought my son this toy and he loves it. It is super easy to use and great pictures! The only down side is some of the books are abridged versions and NOT the full book which was a huge let down. Other wise a very good toy.

Rarely works.

The slides are rarely correct. It will take 1-2 minutes when first starting then the story usually starts 3-4 slides ahead of the narrator and stays on that slide the whole story. Doesn’t matter the cartridge. Do not waste your money.

My son received this for Christmas and he truly enjoys it. My son is 2 years old. Easy enough for him to know how to turn it on and watch it in his little tent in his room. Highly recommend for toddlers or kids of any age. Easy to use. Even plays calming sounds when there is no book which my son also enjoys. Worth every penny.

My son loves this toy! Very cute and easy for him to operate as a 3 year old. I would have given this 5 stars, but the books that come with the dream machine are pretty obscure and outdated. I am interested to see what other books are available!

We got it as a Christmas gift. My 2 yr old loves it. His favorite is pokey puppy. I just wish there was more pokey puppy books so we don't have to watch the same one over and over.
