Twilight Turtle Tunes with Bluetooth connection to the iPad

Here’s another Twilight Turtle Tunes feature: connect it to your tablet or phone using the built-in Bluetooth.

Download the free iPad app (search for CloudB) and choose from the pre-set library of in-app melodies and sounds that can be played wirelessly via Twilight Turtle Tunes’ speaker.

Or, be a little more creative by using the same wireless connection to play your child’s favourite tunes, nursery rhymes or stories from your iPad. Great for story time at bedtime and don’t forget Twilight Turtle Tunes also projects stars onto walls and ceiling in blue, green or amber for a lovely sensory effect.
