If you want to give your child a mobile with an ocean theme, the VTech Soothing Ocean Slumber is a good option. This unit is designed with toys that have bold, contrasting colors so it will appeal to both newborns as well as babies over 5 months old. The mobile has a motor, so you do not have to spin the toys manually. I should mention that the toys do not only spin round but also dangle from side-to-side.
This VTech baby mobile also plays music to entertain your baby. It is programmed with over 45 tunes as well as nature sounds and nursery rhymes. This means that it does not only entertain your child but also educates him/her. The melodies can play for a long time, so it is perfect for lulling your baby to sleep. At night, you can turn off the light in your baby’s nursery and turn on the projector light on the mobile. It shines soft, colorful lights on the ceiling on the wall featuring images of the moon and stars.
One of the most impressive aspects of the VTech Soothing Ocean Slumber Mobile is that it comes with a timer, so you do not have to head to your baby’s crib to turn it off manually.
When your child is under 5 months old, you can use this unit as a baby mobile and projector. However, once your child passes that age, you can convert the mobile into a crib toy and light projector by removing the mobile arm and attaching the dangling toys to the base of the bluefish/ central control unit. You can get this VTech baby mobile for only $34.97 on Amazon.
