I wanted a mobile that was fun, long-lasting and not just a couple of cheap, stuffed animals swirling around. The Fisher-Price 2-In-1 Precious Planet Projection Mobile is a great solution because it has cute animals, but also a neat projection system that makes this toy even more engaging. The images are projected onto a plastic, umbrella-like device that can be removed for projection onto the ceiling. There are 3 modes of audio: songs, nature and heart-beat. The jingles are cute, the nature mode is nice "white-noise", the heart-beat is a winner for newborns. The convenient remote hangs on the door knob, allowing me to control the device without disturbing the baby. It does not work through walls, but is useful regardless.
With it's useful features, cute music and secure attaching devices, I wish we would have had this sooner!
