Bringing Our Nursery Walls to Life With Wild Walls

Disclosure: I was provided a Wild Walls set to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own.

Keeping in line with the fact that we're tackling our nursery makeover a little at time since Baby Agbai 2.0 won't be in there until December, I decided to surprise Lil Lovebird with something special for her room while we wait for her brother's arrival: a Wild Walls Under the Sea Journey Light n' Sound Wallscape.

Lately Nia is completely obsessed with all things mermaid and has an "Ariel" that's really not - it's a green-haired mini-mermaid doll that goes everywhere with us and that she even sleeps with. I've tried explaining Ariel has red hair but she's not having it!

I have to admit I was a bit wary of the set at first when I saw it mounts on the wall especially as we're in a rental apartment (hey we want to get our security deposit back), but thankfully, it has removable decals and the Wallscape FX Activator (or beam light as I call it!), only requires a small screw into the wall. Mr. Lovebird was happy to set it up, and the hardest part for Lil Lovebird was waiting the required 24-48 hours for the decals to lay flat (DO NOT skip this step, the directions demand).

Beside it being removable, the sound and lights are on a timer and gently fade in and out. The first night while we waited for the decals to flatten, Nia was content to sleep with the FX Activator. I was concerned that she'd keep pressing the button and stay up all night but she went to sleep just fine. Once we got the entire set up running she had the biggest grin, pressed the FX Activator once then drifted off to sleep during the 15 minutes it played. Quick and easy!

With a newborn arriving in just over 5 weeks, which I'm sure is going to rock her world, I felt good being able to do something extra special for Nia's side of the room. 

Besides the Disney Princess Wild Walls, there are also many other Wallscapes to choose from such as:

Dolphin Voyage
Amazing Web Attack
Garden of Fairy Friends
