Our most recent multifunctional addition is Tiny Love’s Soothe ‘N Groove Mobile. This great mobile goes from a mobile (of course), to crib mounted music box, and finally, a carry along toy for your toddler’s enjoyment.
Currently we are using this as a carry along, not as an all-day toy, but a bedtime privilege instead. You see, it is weaning week at my house, and anything I can use to replace the comfort of “mommy” is what I am going with! Last night was terrible so I thought I would try another approach this evening… I grabbed the mobile’s box and allowed him to lay down with it.
At first he enjoyed pressing all of the buttons; they light up and he thought it was fantastic! After a few minutes of playing with the lights/buttons, he started to slow down and listen to the music. Once he found the Nature Sounds, he was out!
How is this possible?
Last night he resembled a drug addict during detox (for over an hour!), and today he is asleep within minutes! Amazing! It has to be the music box.
As a mobile:
The mobile itself is adorable. The colors match our crib bedding and are very versatile regardless of your little one’s gender.
The characters are cute and plush. Again, great colors.
The arm of the mobile is very durable. You won’t have to worry about your little one breaking it.
My only complaint, the mobile itself is a little big, but I think that is the style now so I can’t really complain too much about it. I just feel it is a little bulky compared to my matching crib bedding set mobile.
Crib mounted music box:
After your little one starts to become grabby of the mobile feature you can quickly and easily remove the mobile and retain the music box base on the crib without removing everything. This way, you don’t have to remind yourself to “convert the mobile”, because you can easily do it the moment you feel you need to without any fuss. Simply press the release button on the back and out it goes. Within seconds you are done! Afterwards you can easily take the “mobile” apart for storage until your next little one arrives.
Your traveling toddler:
After a while, toddlers become more curious and prefer to “hold” and explore things further. They are no longer satisfied to have something they feel they should be able to hold withheld from them. Again, once this happens, you can quickly and easily slide the box off of the base and hand it to your child the moment this issue arrives. No unscrewing, no “big deal” removal. Just slide it off and hand it over!
Why I love it:
It got my child to sleep within minutes on night two of the weaning process! Need I say more?
