Great find! Thanks

Or just establish a solid routine with your kids which may take longer but'll give a much stronger foundation for happier bedtimes long after the 30th of September (when this ends)...

IMO this is a nasty little service tricking parents into taking short cuts.

Not voting either way as I'm sure it was posted with the best of intentions but this "service" offends me beyond belief.

Good for you. I would disagree about my misery, but there you go... I'm not saying kids wouldn't love it...especially if they love Disney but it's advertised as a helping hand when the reality is far from it. What happens when the messages end and kids are wondering why Mickey isn't saying goodnight to them anymore? What does that do for their routine then? I thought it was clear from my original post that my grievance lies with the company and not the OP and certainly not anyone who chooses to use this.

Essay over.

Thinks it's a lovely, magical idea

Nice idea for a one off message for any child .. but an unnecessary "service".

Being a grandparent my job to spoil!! Great OP many thanks heat added! There are some miseries about!!

aw. cute for kids who like one of the characters. I will have to work on my spiderman impression for my nephew! voted hot, bit of fun and a cute gimmick for mickey fans!

(he kinda creeps me out!)

Says the guy with no kids(http://www.hotukdeals.com/tag/ask/help-baby-monitors-audio-only-your-experiences-recommendations-needed-1991283). The fun you're in for my friend, some kids will sleep, some won't. Come back here in about a years time when you've had about 12 hours sleep over the course of a week with your twins and feel free to preach your vast wisdom on how to handle children.

Well as it is my twins (born three months early) are sleeping soundly in the intensive care unit at the moment. When they do get out, I won't give a damn for how little sleep I've had. They'll have a story every night as part of the routine.

Thank for you sarcasm though. Really helpful.

The treatment of Danston here has been shocking.

Wish I could read my daughter a story before bed! It stimulates her even more. Not everything works for everyone. Hope your baby's are ok and get out soon xx

Thank you.

I agree with Danston, routine is the way to go.

Two boys one now old enough to read to himself before he sleeps and the other just starting school so the bedtime read consists of Biff and Chip! I can't wait to see back of Biff, Chip, Floppy etc but he loves it.

Every child is different but a phone call from one of their favourite characters (would need to be more ironman than Mickey) would send them into hypermode.

Why is this only available until end of Sept anyway?

I agree, disagree with the majority and get jumped on. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, calling someone miserable when not knowing anything about them is somewhat childish. People have different views on parenting, get over it!

Heat for Danston. Why must every single person with a differing view be challenged on each deal, every person will have an opinion but to then turn around and try to ridicule that person for having an opinion different to yours is pathetic.
Just look how some assumed Danston had no children, morons.

Danston I totally agree with you. I read a story every night no gimmick needed.

He made his own bed

Firstly, thank you to those who have been supportive of my opinion. It does mean a lot to know that others can see where you're coming from. Especially with such an important issue.

To those who feel i am a misery or want children to miss out on magical experiences, i have to disagree with you. As i mentioned earlier, my issue is with the service and was in no way intended as a criticism of how people choose to raise their families. I did also clearly state it as a matter of opinion and directed it at no one in particular.

As a primary school teacher I know that each child and family is unique and what's good for the goose isn't necessarily good for the gander and I also know that being a professional working with children is different to the day to realities of family life (when you can't hand them back at 3pm!). I knew this even before my babies arrived (though the picture is becoming ever-clearer now!)

I wish you all the happiest of bedtimes... However you choose to get there.

D

I'd like to add my support for Danston, and hope your babies are back home soon x

im sure after listening to this so called bed time call my little one, even from half sleep, would demand to get out of bed and put the micky mouse club house on to tablet or pc.
what a load of crap.
good luck to those who believes, no offense.

Are you for real. what a misery.

Very real please read the entire thread (especially post #28).

The split here seems to be between and group of people who think parenting is about thoughtful responsibility and the other group who see family life as a series of laissez faire purchases.

I think there's especially one person on here on a power trip and one other that is his biatch.

No sarcasm intended! You will look back at your comment though, when I'm sure you have the little ones home safe n sound,. and realise nothing you thought you knew about how to raise kids actually counted for anything. In a year's time you will be much wiser and not so quick to judge. My opinion is entirely based on experience, 3 out 4 kids slept fine, the other just decided to go against everything, treated no differently than the rest. Some kids can't be routinised, as I'm sure you'll soon find out, and you will try anything. If only it was as simple as reading a story.

Best of luck with them though, twins are not for the faint hearted

Danston well done & I agree with you

Thank you for kind wishes. It's been a tricky start and I already have a few more grey hairs after the first four days!

In regards to your earlier comment... I honestly didn't feel I was judging anything but the "service" itself and I'm afraid I did take your "vast knowledge" comment as sarcastic in the context of what you're saying as well as taking mild exception to the use of the word "preach"...but I guess that's the hazard when there's no face to face communication.

In light of your agreement with samsmith, all I can say is that I am definitely not on a power trip, just expressing an opinion, as you have done with yours.

Thank you again for your kind wishes though... And again, happy bedtimes now and in the future.

Yeap. Read it all before posting my comment, having reached the same conclusion I have again reached. Why you felt the need to even post your comment in the first place is beyond me. Have you heard of fun?!! My children are 7 and 4. They have a solid routine in all the important aspects of their lives. I.e bedtime, dinner, bath, school etc. They sleep perfectly and for a substantial amount of time. I've downloaded this, in particular for my youngest, for a bit of fun before bedtime. To let them have a bit of excitement and joy, and who knows, dreams of Disney. Your judgmental opinion would be better spent on a parenting forum, where you can jump right in and belittle parents, rather than a deals forum.
