"I wish Brobo was around when I was younger so that I could have had an adorable plush friend to light up the scary nighttime. I think the Dog has to be my very favorite. It's so adorable and I love those eyes it has with that stuck out little tongue. It almost reminds me of our faithful Tomopup!" -Tomopop.com

Good looks, great quality, and a mission to light up the darkness for kids everywhere make Brobo and The Shine Force a must have for any kid/parent." -CookeFamily.us

"Some of my personal favorites at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair were these guys here" -MommasReviews.com

 

"One of my favorite toys from the Chicago Toy and Game Fair was BROBO and friends. I am not a huge fan of stuffed animals... but these little guys are so cute that they just won me over. BROBO and his friends also have a video on YouTube that I discovered. It’s a song to help kids learn numbers and Jake watched it with a huge smile and wanted to keep watching it over and over again." -MakingTimeForMommy.com

 

"My son is very scared of the dark. He always has been. To the point sometimes a typical wall night-light just won’t work. Imagine how excited I was when I discovered Brobo. It’s a huggable night-light!! My son will not go anywhere without him. It is his new best friend. His favorite part is when TREX kicks on there is a little vibration. He said "It's TREX way showing me he is ready to play!" -WomanOfManyRoles.com

 

"They are extremely well-made toys. Very very good quality! A very effective night-light." -Toy Review TV

 

"It does seem all well worth it when a little girl giggles hugging a pink plush toy, 'Mommy! This is the best present EVER! It’s PEP – I love her so much!' Since she is going through the “Monster under the bed” stage, it definitely helps to have shine force by your side. I am just happy to get her the best gift ever." -Way2GoodLife.com (PEP review)



What Parents Are Saying

"They have been a big hit with the girls. Mumu now goes everywhere with Shona. This is a big deal as they were never really into plush toys. I've attached a photo I took of her, cuddled up in bed. Mumu looks pretty happy to be there!" - R. O'Connor

 

 

"My son (20 months) really enjoys playing with his "woof woof" (we have the Dog). The toy has become a permanent fixture in my son's bed. It is cute and huggable and has brought tons of smiles, laughs, giggles and squeals of excitement." - A. Truck

 

"I wanted you to know that Dog is part of my daughter's bedtime routine nightly. She weaned from nursing about a month ago and Dog was essential for a smooth transition. We snuggle in bed for story time with Dog providing our reading light. It's great how she can turn on our reading light while I flip off the room light and I love that Dog's light turns off automatically. Sometimes we go through '3 cycles' or so but she never protests when it's time for lights out." - N. Valentine


 

"I gave the toy to my 2.5 year old daughter. She gets a kick out of rubbing his hand on his belly to make the light come on. We still use our Brobo light almost every night. :)" - T. Millis

 

 

"In less than an hour, she was telling him she loved him. My daughter puts Mumu in bed with her and is proud to be able to have her own controllable night light in her room. I like that there is an option for intensity. My daughter likes the blinking lights and the vibration sound, which sounds like a real robot. She also likes to hug this toy, because it is so soft." - Mom23

 

"My son took it and pretty much didn't put it down for 48hrs! He made him ride around in his trucks and that very afternoon he had to sit Brobo at the table and "shared" his lunch with him. He also had to sleep with him that night and the next few too - it is still in his bed along with his other stuffed toys! When my husband first saw it and we told him how it lit up he thought it was not that impressive and looked like it should do more....but as soon as I explained the concept of "braving the dark" his opinion changed to thinking it was pretty cool. I like the idea of the Brobo Shine Force toys because they have gloworms, etc. that play songs and light up for babies, but once kids are a little older this is a better option. I also think that an older child wouldn't feel quite as embarrassed if another child were to see this toy as opposed to the toys of the same nature for babies. It might be cool if it made some sort of superhero/strong/blast off type noise when the light came on...something to kind of show "power/no fear", but I also like that it is a silent toy!!" - R. McCord

 

 

"My son thinks it's a great stuffed "friend". He likes to carry him around at home, the car, etc... I'm not sure he understands to use it if he is afraid of the dark." - K. Stewart

"We received the Brobo puppy! My son loves to carry it around during the day. It's a cute, huggable, and bright toy, that my son enjoys. Thank you." - A. Woods

 

"Received the toys yesterday. Everything I hoped they would be. Showed them to my wife and she loved them so much she doesn't want to wait for Christmas to give them to the kids." - C. Cerra

 

"I heard about Brobo through this fantastic parenting page on Facebook. So i hopped online and my son was so excited to meet his new toy. He sleeps with it every night and carries him around closer to bedtime to use as a flash light whenever he gets scared." - C. Dana

 

 

"My 21 month old daughter loves this toy!!! She was hugging Mumu & carrying him around & even pretending to feed him lol. I think she likes that it has a big head because she was carrying him around by his head & telling him he was cute. When we received Mumu she was so excited and started jumping up & down. I think this toy is nice for little kids because it is a fun size, has a cute face, & my daughter loves the light. I thought my daughter would be kind of weary about the mummy but she actually really seems to love him. He has been attached to her most of the day today. She even took him for a ride in her stroller. I think this could be a really popular toy." - Bella's Momma

"What a hit these were with the grandchildren! All three ages 8, 5 and 4 were thrilled with them!" - S. Day

 

"My nephew in Brooklyn, New York received his Mumu, which we sent as a Christmas gift and I am told that he has not put it down! I am confident that when Milo shows his friends Brobo, you will be sending many more." - J. Bingham

"My daughter needs another pink Brobo. I am hoping you have more… PLEASE? Bedtime was hell… ;) Thanks." - C. Côté

 

"I ordered the original Brobo for my 6 year old stepson and nephew. When I brought them home yesterday and gave them to the boys, they were totally ecstatic! My 1 year old daughter quickly took possession of my son's Brobo so of course I had to order Pep for her." - C. Hemphill

 

"She is loving Pep. They've been inseparable all day." - K. Rabel

 

"We got Dog and my boys love it! We were at Navy Pier in Chicago for the Toy Fair and we got one of our boys the Robot Brobo and he sleeps with it every night. My other boy wanted one too, so we got him Dog. We even took take them on vacation with us! Thanks." - L. Feczko

 

"Emma wants to go to bed right now. That is highly unusual, the kid stays up until midnight almost every day, so I think that means she LOVES Dog. She was tucked into bed an hour ago reading him a story and now she's just announced she's done for the night. Thanks again, that toy is a success for sure!" - S. Toffin

 

"This toy is great! Just bought one each for Aaron & Maria. Love the light feature. Maria's a little scared of the dark, and uses the light like a flashlight when she goes to the bathroom." - K. Hardy

 

"I bought them for my niece and nephew, age 4 and 6 and they went absolutely crazy for them. Nothing beats the quality." - W. Fisher
