Bedtime can be fun. Actually bedtime can sometimes be an adventure as well. I would hide and mommy would try to find me. Apparently I’m not that good at hiding because I’m usually found pretty quickly. I need to get better at playing hide and seek. Hiding under the blanket isn’t that great of a place to hide. I must say that I love my routine but with the Daylight Savings Time change I am also a little confused as to what time of the day it is. I remember when 5pm was all nice and bright. Now 5pm can be as dark as my normal bedtime of 7:30pm. How do you keep track of the time and what needs to be done. How I keep my routine straight? The Jim Henson’s Pajanimals Bedtime Routine Board by TOMY has really helped.
Now before I go into what my Pajanimals Bedtime Routine Board can do I have to tell you how easy it was open from the box. Mommy hates toys that needs scissors etc to get them open. I’m very impatient when it comes to having my toys opened as well and usually can’t wait. There was nothing of the sort with this. It was very easy to do and mommy and I really loved that. It also comes with batteries already installed so it’s open and go.

Now I have to admit that I had never seen the Pajanimals on PBS Sprout so I had no idea who the characters were. Mommy and I decided to pay the website a visit to find out who they were. From left to right I got to meet Apollo, Sweetpea Sue, Cowbella and Squacky. Now let me tell you that this has really helped me getting ready for bed. It comes with a handy little handle and is light enough for me to carry around. Perfect for all little ones.
There are four routines on the board and fortunately for mommy and me they are routines that we do right before bed. Mommy and I don’t always do them in the order that they are in. That doesn’t detract from the routine board though. For example there might be a night when mommy is too tired so we may forget about taking a bath, especially if daddy had already given me one earlier. I always get a bedtime story though so that stays constant.
Now this is how it is done. If you would prefer to push the character down before or after that is entirely up to you. Mommy and I prefer to do it after we’ve done the activity. Each character does a particular routine and then gets placed into his bed. When he goes into his bed it plays a lovely little song. Once all four characters have been placed into their bed it plays a lullaby meaning it is bed time. Mommy usually does them and let me do the final one which I love to do.
Do mommy and I recommend the Pajanimals Bedtime Routine Board by TOMY? You bet we do! It really does help with keeping a regular bedtime routine. Not only does it help make it fun but it helps with the transition between playtime and bedtime which is what TOMY was going for. Mommy had decided to do a little video showing how the Bedtime Routine Board actually works.
