We bought this when our second child's birth in 2009, he STILL LOVES IT! He would wake up in the middle of the night, turn it on and go back to sleep by the time he was a year. Same thing with our 3rd baby and now we are pregnant with number 4. Completely worth the price and the music is beautiful, soothing and much less irritating than most baby mobiles, swings etc. We like to switch it up and use the nature sounds or heartbeat when they are newborn to help add, \"white noise\" which is a much needed survival tool...especially for colicky babies, (which 2\/4 so far have been# Speaking of that, must also suggest the Happiest Baby on the Block DVD! =) LOVE it and tell everyone about these 2 things...#ok, adding in a tower fan pointed towards the wall for the white noise as lifesaver too!) Amazing! Once baby is addicted to it, MUST have extra set of batteries on hand at all times. Really not a battery hog, do last surprisingly long. We are still dependent on it and have guaranteed sleep for all...Unless it's 3am and batteries die. Seriously. Have even taken to Hotel with us to make sure kids can sleep in strange place when traveling.
My LO loves this toy. He plays with it everyday, and it keeps his eyes and hands busy for at least 20 mins at the time. The bad side of it, is its \"night\" music feature, the motor is so noisy, that you can hardly hear the music. I gave it 4 stars because my LO hates to be on his tummy, and this toy has made his tummy time a little more bearable. I wish it has more features, like lights or more songs.
My 3 week old son loves this already. It keeps him entertained while I have to lay him down. The music is nice and has volume control. The cute characters inside move. Great value. Would definitely buy it over again.

What our shoppers say:
I bought this after reading far too many reviews for mobiles. I was worried that my son wouldn't be stimulated enough but I was wrong. I got this when he was 4 months old and he loves it. The animals do not rotate but go up and down and my son could care less. He loves to watch them move regardless and light up. He also likes the setting that shines the blue stars on the ceiling. It has to be dark for it to look right (obviously) but it looks neat when on. The music is nice and has 2 volume settings but my only complaint is that it doesn't play long enough. I think that it plays for 9 minutes. I can just restart it but it would be great if it played a little longer. It is expensive and I really wish it was cheaper but I would recommend this to anyone.
