Barbapapa, mon amour

Our friend Barbara gave Sasha a book about Barbapapa when he was a little boy. He has been fascinated by Barbapapa ever since.
Looking throught the JojoMamanBebe catalogue, I admired a lovely night lamp shaped as our favourite character. You can imagine how delighted I was to win one of them on Beeniebuds & Co blog. I knew it would be perfect for either Eddie or Sasha.
Barbapapa Lumilove from Pabobo comes with a smart base. Once charged, it keeps glowing through the night, and what makes it different from the other night lights is that it keeps cool to the touch. Our Barbapapa is blue, and his glow is very soft, relaxing and comforting, just like Barbapapa itself.

Eddie smiled seeing Barbapapa for the first time and immediately tried to put it in his mouth, as he does with anything new.
But it was Sasha who fell in love with it. He stroked and touched the little rotund figure with tenderness, put it next to his cheek and sniffed. When Sasha sniffs people, it means he trusts them.

Sasha being Sasha, he has his own ideas about how things should be done. So, after playing with Barbapapa, he installed him back on the base for the night.

First thing in the morning, he got out of his bed, ran to Barbapapa and switched it on and off repeatedly. Satisfied that it works perfectly, he put him back on the base and started getting ready for school.
Looks like Barbapapa is a new member of our family, loved and cherished already.

P.S. You can get your own Barbapapa in blue or pink from

    1. Sadly it's long broken, Tracy, as being so much loved, it has been shaken too much, something inside got dislocated and it stopped working as a light. Still, it was a big hit with my guys.
