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!

As an ophthalmologist, I can attest to the functional utility of this product. Newborns truly are drawn to high contrast patterns--but this product is so poorly made I would not recommend it. The plastic cards are badly made--3 of them were broken straight out of the box such that I had to use tape to put them back together. In addition, the holes in the card to attach to the main apparatus are inconsistent so that some fit too loosely and are easily knocked off while others are so tight I can't get them attached. If motivated, you could probably make your own sturdier mobile--the patterns are available online.

We got the stim-mobile for our son when he was just 3 weeks old. He has used it for the past three months. He does look at it, and it has become a familiar part of his "landscape". He prefers looking at lights and black and white objects that move, so these things grab his attention away from the mobile.

I can't tell what effect it has on him. I do know that the plastic clamp and wand assembly looked so cheap, we didn't even try to use it. We put an eyebolt in the ceiling and hung it from a cord. The adjustment hooks work very well for raising and lowering the mobile. The card attachment is not secure on the mobile and this makes moving and changing cards difficult. Some of the holes punched in the card were too small to hook onto the mobile. But my biggest concern is that the plastic that the cards are made from is translucent, and when I look up at the mobile (as my son can only do) I see both the image on the side facing him AS WELL AS the ghost of the image on the reverse side. I can only imagine that this makes it very difficult for his brain to see a clear, crisp simple image, which is the whole point of this thing.
