Reversible graphic cards
This baby stimulation toy features 10 interchangeable graphic cards labeled by age, ranging from simple, high-contrast images to more complex colored patterns all hung from an adjustable crib mobile arm.

Wimmer-Ferguson Developmental Infant Toys by Manhattan Toy
Reflecting over 40 years of research on infant visual development, the Wimmer-Ferguson collection of baby and infant toys all feature high-contrast images, patterns and colors. Research has shown that newborns are more attracted to high-contrast patterns than to color and brightness alone. At birth, black and white infant toys create a strong impression with baby. Starting at around 3 months, changes in the eye significantly increase a baby's ability to see color. The newborn toys in this collection reflect this by featuring a wide range of design, complexity, and color. These baby toys all encourage eye-hand coordination, gross motor skill activity, self-awareness, sense of object permanence, and experience with cause and effect. The many accolades this baby toy collection has earned include the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Blue Chip, Parent's Choice Seal of Approval, and Parenting Magazine Toys of the Year.

*edit* got it to attach to the pack n play! See picture. Also, my 2 month old loves it. Although he seems to love his other mobile too. He just likes mobiles.
Research shows that babies observe simple, high-contrast shapes best, so that lead me to buy this mobile.
The main problem I had was that the clasp did not fit my crib (see photo). I was still able to secure it, but I think this will be a general problem, since not all cribs are going to have a suitable construction. Be sure to measure your crib before buying.
The other issue I had is more subjective: It's really not that complicated. I could have made something similar.
But it's also not that expensive, so we'll call it even.
My son is currently not taking to the crib, but once he does I'lll re-review.
Edit (4 months later) Now that baby is starting to sit up, his first thought is to try and demolish this mobile. I guess it’s time to lower the crib! That being said, I’m glad that the card holders detatch from the main body of the mobile. Though possibly not the intended reason, this keeps baby from pulling the whole mobile down on his own head!
I should note- when I first attempted assembly I could not get the 2nd cross bar to fit through the main one. My husband eventually forced it through. It is true that the discs could become loose. I remind big brothers to be gentle when playing with baby/not to push too hard because the discs could fall off! But so far it’s been OK.
