This thing is WONDERFUL! It's HUGE, well made, and my son LOVES it. He will sit under it and just coo and babble at it for a good 30 minutes. The best part? It doesn't even need to be on! The patterns and colors captivate him enough. When I turn it on, and the music plays, and the wings flap, he absolutely loses it! He doesn't stop smiling and kicking his legs and arms. We're both VERY, VERY, happy with this product!

The only things I don't like:

- You have to manually change the songs. While the songs are cute, and not as annoying as most other mobiles, I don't really want to listen to the same one for 15 or 30 minutes.

- There is no mute button. There are two volume levels; "soft" or "deafening". Okay, it's really not *that* loud, but it's pretty loud, and there's no way to turn it on the quieter setting first. It always plays the first song at the highest volume.

- The firefly, itself, doesn't spin. There's nothing that says it does, but it would be nice if it did. It just dangles from a hook on the arm and sometimes my son just needs that little extra movement to keep his attention. But, it's nothing a little manual spinning doesn't solve. It'd just be nice if it did it on it's own.

- The arm that hangs over the bed wiggles back and forth A LOT. While I'm sure it's not going to break off, I would feel better if it were a bit more steady.

- The wings are a little difficult to switch. My son is easily captivated by the different sides, but sometimes he favors one over the other. It's not that big of a deal, the joints are just a little snug (which wouldn't be a complaint if I didn't want to switch them :P)

I ordered this after spending a few weeks looking for a stimulating mobile that would look OK in my baby's room. I just hooked it up for my son who is 2.5 months and he loves it! He smiles and laughs, with arms and legs moving like crazy. Plus, the design isn't too overwhelming. I definitely recommend this to all parents looking for an engaging, stimulating mobile. It's become a go-to toy. Hard to tell if it will ever put him to sleep, but the 20-30 minutes of engagement (read quiet time) is totally worth the $40.

My little girl absolutely loves looking at Freddie the Firefly while lying in her crib! I live how large the mobile is and the time setting options for the music.

Our baby loves this! She literally lights up when she sees it. I've taken many a peaceful shower with this guy entertaining my baby. I appreciate that the volume is adjustable because the default setting is a bit loud. One thing to note is that it doesn't clamp on to the top of the crib, it needs to be placed between two crib slats.

This mobile is great! My 2 month old son absolutely loves it, he goes nuts over Freddie. He'll just talk and smile and kick his little legs from the excitement. He even cried when my husband took him out of the crib while he was still playing.

I liked that I was able to put it together easily and it seems pretty sturdy. The only negative I could think of is that it does require batteries and they are not included, but luckily we had some lying around.

I do wish that the music would play for a longer amount of time, 15 and 30 minutes are sometimes not long enough.

My little one loves watching her firefly, which gives us at least 30 minutes to eat, do dishes, do laundry or whatever! She smiles as soon as I turn the firefly on!

I really love this mobile for several reasons:

1. My baby girl loves it and it helps her sleep at night

2. I love that the wings have the black and white patterns on one side for when they are younger

3. I love the simplicity and how visually appealing it is.

4. Really like the changing color light! Looks really pretty in a dark room..

5. I appreciate that it has 2 volume options

Things that could make this mobile perfect:

1. More song selections. There are only 4 songs and none of them are upbeat. I personally only like two of the songs.it would be nice if it had a shuffle options for the songs.

2. Having a mute option. It would be great if the firefly could still move without playing any of the songs. That way, I can play any Pandora station without having to compete with the mobiles songs.

I think these are adjustments that would make this mobile perfect. Hope his helps!

I bought this on the strength of the other reviews and they were right - it is great. My infant absolutely loves it and it has really helped calm her. I wish it was a little easier to attach to different sorts of furniture as we use it mainly when she is in her bouncy seat, not her crib. That said, we just improvise as it is her absolute favorite.

This is a good looking mobile, and the reversible wings are nice. It's easy to put together and to attach to the crib. But the motion just wasn't enough to entertain or calm my son. The volume selection for the music is nice, but I wanted a mute button sometimes too -- you can't have the motion without the music. I wonder too if the motion just wasn't *enough* motion either: the flapping is slow and I think something that was light enough to be swayed by air flow or that more actively turned on its own might have been a better choice. I kept it for several weeks and tried it at all times of day and night - for entertaining downtime in the crib, at nap time, at just-waking-up time.... but ultimately it was just the wrong mobile for him. I wound up returning it.

Unlike most mobiles where a child lying in a crib only sees a odd shapes floating by, this mobile fully captures my son's attention for long periods. Love that the wings on it flip over so different patterns are visible to meet the needs of different ages - high contrast for newborns. I can't say enough good things about this mobile!
