Animal friends from around the planet twirl and smile down at baby as music plays and a fascinating light show dances up above. The delicate canopy keeps images close, so it’s easier for young babies to focus. As baby grows, you can remove the mobile and project the show on the ceiling, with sweet music or sounds playing along. Mobile requires 4 D batteries, remote requires 2 AAA batteries.
I was looking for a mobile to put over my daughter’s crib and I wanted one that did not play obnoxious music with not a lot of selection. This one had a lot of good reviews so I decided to try it out and I love it. It plays a lot of classical music, womb sounds, heartbeat sounds, and white noise so there is enough of a variety that it doesn’t get old as quickly. I also like the fact that it has a remote to turn it off from a distance instead of having to go up to the crib and fumble around with the machine and possibly wake my baby up in the process.
The projection feature is great as well because if my daughter is not quite ready to sleep the projection will distract her and eventually lull her to sleep. She loves the animals on the projection as well as the plush animals that hang from the mobile. I like the fact that it plays for twenty minutes at a time before it automatically shuts off so it is not running all night and wasting crazy amounts of batteries.
I wish that it had an AC adaptor because batteries do cost money and they go through it pretty fast when you have to use it every night. I have started using rechargeable batteries and this cut down on costs substantially. Also the battery cover requires a very small screwdriver to remove and I had to search through my husband’s tool box to find one that would fit and if you don’t have one laying around you might have to buy one. I do wish that it either came with one or had a more standard screw type.
Overall, I think it is a really nice product and it has been a big help with sleep training. It soothes my daughter to sleep in her own bed and it has helped me get a better night’s sleep. I will definitely use this for my next baby and I would highly recommend to parents, especially those who are trying to sleep train. This product works wonders.
