Deciding on a mobile has a lot to do with what the parents are looking for in the mobiles purpose. We looked at many mobiles trying to decide what features we wanted. After reading about the Montessori method, we decided to go with one geared to stimulate baby visually and physically. This mobile fits the bill! Baby enjoys staring at the images and I enjoy switching them out to keep her interested. It doesn't over-stimulate nor bore baby. As she gets older, I'm sure she will bat at the images.

I think most mobiles under or over stimulate. This mobile is a great tool for baby's development. Musical mobiles may be nice for some. I prefer using a CD player in the room and switching around CD's for baby's musical pleasure. We use a mobile for visual and physical stimulation.

We received this mobile as a gift when our daughter was only a few weeks old. She was fascinated by it from the beginning and continues to be interested in it even at 6 months. (Once she started getting grabby, we had to remove the extra plastic links so that the images were out of reach.) Our baby clearly preferred this mobile to the musical one that we bought her (at twice the price, I see now). The changeable images keep it interesting and stimulating, from very simple black/white/ red geometics for the youngest babies, to more colorful images and faces as baby gets older. This mobile is designed for infants up to 5 months, but our 6 and 1/2 month old is still interested in it--I haven't had the heart to move it from its position on the changing table. One of the best gifts ever!

This mobile is very well designed, my son really loves the pictures, they are reversable so I can switch them as he gets older, the pictures face the baby unlike most mobiles.

February 2011, 3 stars:

I was excited when one of my friends purchased this mobile off our registry for us because I'd read such excellent things about it. Well, it arrived yesterday. I put it together last night and here is my review.

I want to like it. I love the idea of the interchangeable high-contrast cards to keep a baby interested. I knew it didn't have a motor and planned to have a fan circulating air in the nursery, which would move the cards a little bit. I knew people had had breakage troubles with some of the parts so I was careful in my assembly and indeed did not break anything. However, it still falls short of what I'd hoped for.

First, I agree with other reviewers that it is very cheaply made. The various plastic components are different shades of "white" (one reviewer said the arm and crib attachment were lavender and that's about right).

Second, the crib attachment piece is non-adjustable. If your crib slats or edges are too skinny or too wide (like mine is), it simply will not fit. However, I imagine if your crib is too skinny you could find something to act as a spacer and get it to wedge on there just fine.

Third, as mentioned, the mobile doesn't fit on my crib. I have the Baby Mod Park Lane crib from Walmart and the edge panel of the crib is just slightly too wide for this mobile to fit. For the time being, I have figured out a much less secure way to attach it, but we will probably just end up trashing the plastic arm and crib attachment piece and hanging the mobile itself from the ceiling.

Fourth, as other reviewers have mentioned, you'd think that all of the cards would be interchangeable but they're not. Some cards are designed to be vertical and some are designed to be horizontal.

My daughter (now 10 months old) has loved this from the day we got it, when she was only 2 weeks old! The trick is to ditch the plastic rod it comes with and put a small eye hook into the ceiling and then hang the mobile with clear fishing line. This allows it to spin freely and really keep the baby's attention. My dad also used an Exacto knife to cut slits in all of the discs so that we can use all of them in any position. Annoying tweaks? Yes. But totally worth it!

We found this at a garage sale and I read about it and it seemed really interesting so I bought it. This is for the first few months of a baby's life and should not move much, contrary to what the first poster said, because you want stimulation but you don't want to over-stimulate a baby. However, we did notice that sometiems our baby does like the mobile to move and it is summer here but the air conditioner blowing air around the room should be enough movement. When it's not moving, we can just put a small fan on its lowest setting about 6 feet from the crib and the small wiggling was enough movement to keep her stimulated but not so much movement that she can't keep track of the object (babies this young are not good at tracking so you don't want a lot of motion), but still we only do this once in a while, not at all times.

One of the best things about this mobile is that our baby only wakes us up at night to feed. If she wakes herself up she will sit and stare at it for a long time and be happy since we have a small nightlight in the room. Any time we put her in the crib we can see her staring at the simple shapes. Shown in the picture on the product page is the detailed shapes, you flip the cardboard from the simple to the detailed shapes when they are about 2 months old, then remove this mobile for a more 'traditional' one with movement and objects the baby can grab at about 4 months. This is a somewhat delicate mobile since it uses air currents to move, so you need to keep it safe from a grabbing/eating baby.

Also, one nice feature is that ours came with a travel pack, or at least that's how I'm using it. Besides the crib mount, there is an 8 inch circular plastic ring with fishing wire for hanging the mobile.
