I wanted to try this mobile because it was battery operated and a dimming feature to help the baby wind down and drift off to sleep. The mobile worked perfectly and our son has slept in his crib, as opposed to his swing, ever since. The music is nice as opposed to some other mobiles on the market. The low battery indicator is really nice to have because there are no surprises at nap time with the batteries being dead.
Our crib has a wide flat ledge which was hard to fit other mobiles on but the strap on this one goes around the frame great as long as you pull it tight. The first time we put it on it wiggled a little lose but my husband pulled it tight and it doesn't move anymore. I noticed that it clicked the first time, when it was leaning over, once we got it snug and upright the clicking stopped. The piece that turns the mobile was having a hard time turning because the mobile was not level.
We bought this mobile for our newborn's crib. It uses 3 C batteries, which it doesn't come with, so we had to make another trip out to buy them upon opening. The "soother" part is great quality, and I like that it detaches from the mobile so it can still be used when baby gets older, but the mobile part is cheap and low quality. The fabric is thin, it is lopsided, and when it moves the parts make a loud clicking. That being said, my son loves the music setting for just playing in the crib, he goes to sleep to the ocean noises, and loves watching the animals move around. I wish somewhere they would tell you what songs are used though, I've looked everywhere to find the names of the melodies and cannot find them. Also, there are no lights. It was easy to assemble.
Overall, I would buy this again, and recommend it due to how much my son loves it, but it is sort of cheap looking as a mobile, and, in my opinion, overpriced.
I purchased this product as my previous mobile was no longer working. I decided to purchase this one because it was really cute, and loved the fact that it had a remote and diffent types of soothing music. The only cons that I have are that even on the lowest volume setting, it is quite loud and there is a clicking when the mobile turns which is quite annoying. Unsure if I am going to return this product and get something else.
