Donna reviews the Starlight Mobile
The Fisher-Price Starlight Mobile, (around £35), projects holographic stars onto the ceiling and also plays soothing music. Plus, it features a collection of teddy bear characters and mirrors for your baby to watch while he drops off to sleep. We asked Donna Roper, 33, from Kent to review it with daughter Hannah, four months.
I’ve started putting a daytime sleep routine in place for Hannah, so the Starlight Mobile has come at the perfect time to help settle her.
The mobile’s super easy to put together and Hannah loves watching the turning teddies and stars reflect on the ceiling – they’ll generally always help her nod off. Music plays at the same time and there’s also the option to have nature sounds.
Although Hannah’s a bigger fan of the music right now, I like that there’s variety to keep her entertained.
The lights then fade with the music when she’s dropped off. Overall, a great baby sleep product.
Laura reviews the Starlight Mobile
The Fisher-Price Starlight Mobile, around £35, projects holographic stars onto the ceiling and also plays soothing music. Plus, it features a collection of teddy bear characters and mirrors for your baby to watch while he drops off to sleep. We asked Laura Mason, 34, from Kent to review it with her son Reuben, three months.
I liked the Starlight mobile because the music was gentle and soothing. The lights were the most mesmerising feature for Reuben and he seemed very relaxed while he lay in his cot watching it. The mobile was very easy and quick to assemble, and just needs four AA batteries.
The cot fixing is well designed – I’ve found other mobiles can sometimes take the paint off cot bars where they are clamped on. This design fits on securely without causing damage. The mobile has a light projector which casts star and moon shapes on the ceiling and walls and also has a rotating collection of smiling bears and sparkly stars to reflect the light from two further star-shaped lights on the ‘arm’.
The options to choose whether you want lights, music and motion were simple, making it easy to personalise and we mostly used all features at once. I like that rather than nursery rhymes, it plays more classical music and lullabies instead. The mobile movement is slow so it’s perfect for relaxation.’
