OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Keep baby soothed right from your phone with the Rainforest Friends Smart Connect 2-in-1 Projection Mobile. Using the Fisher-Price Smart Connect app on your iOS or Android smart device, you can control the mobile's music and projection image.

The mobile itself consists of a base unit that attaches to a crib rail with an adjustable strap and strings. Make sure you follow the installation instructions for safety. While you're in the baby's room, you can control the mobile using buttons on the base unit, for instance, choosing from white noise, nature sound effects, or music. There is also a button that turns on or off the projection and mobile movement, so that you can have sound, movement, and projection going all at once, or some combination of the three. And the light button turns on a soft yellow light at the bottom of the base unit, great for letting you quickly check on your sleeping baby.

Extending from the mobile's arm are spinning leaves and rainforest animals, such as a lion, elephant, and frog. The projection is displayed on the mobile's bottom surface. You can also remove the mobile arm and have the projection displayed on the ceiling for an older baby.

Once you get the mobile going and leave the room, you can continue to control the mobile's features from the app without having to disturb your baby by returning to the room. Set a timer for how long the music and mobile will stay on, turn off the projector or change the image, have the mobile play music from your device, turn on the light so you can check on baby through your baby monitor, and access Sound Sensor Smart Messages, which alert you if a sound is detected in the baby's room after the music, mobile, and projection have turned off.

Why Is It Useful?

A crib mobile is an essential in your child's nursery, and high-tech parents are going to like this mobile's high-tech features. It has all the soothing elements you would want from a mobile, including soft lights, calming music and sounds, and spinning animals to stimulate a baby's senses and provide a sense of comfort and security at bedtime. But when paired with the app, parents have more options for use, and they won't have to worry about disturbing baby by going back into the room to check on baby or start the mobile up again.
