Discover n Grow Storybook Projection Soother Review (Fisher-Price)

What It Is

The Discover 'n Grow Storybook Projection Soother attaches to a crib and projects a light show on the ceiling while also telling stories. There are eight colorful projections to go along with the four stories: "Hickory, Dickory, Dock," "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," "Rock-a-bye Baby," and "Hey Diddle, Diddle." There are three fabric storybook pages. Just flip a page to change the song. The Storybook Projection Soother plays up to 20 minutes of music. Parents can choose to play music with the projections or just the music. It also comes with a remote so that parents can restart the Storybook Projection Soother without disturbing their baby. The Storybook Projection Soother includes instructions on how to safely attach the device to a crib using the attachment strap and strings.

Why Is It Useful?

The high-contrast images and light show are designed to encourage eye-tracking skills while promoting relaxation. The soft light of the Storybook Projection Soother helps babies and toddlers, especially those who are afraid of the dark, feel safe when they lay down to sleep at night. This is a great item for babies and toddlers who have trouble falling asleep.

Who It’s For

The Storybook Projection Soother is for ages birth to 24 months.

What To Be Aware Of

The remote requires two AAA batteries, which are not included. The soother requires four C batteries, which are not included. The soother does come with four AA batteries in a disposable box that power the in-store try-me feature, but you must remove those batteries and replace them with the C batteries in order for the soother to fully work.

The fabric storybook pages do contain concealed magnets. The magnets are securely integrated into the unit and cannot be removed with normal use. Do not use the Storybook Projection Soother around items that are sensitive to or affected by magnetic fields.
