Since my baby boy was just few weeks old, in the morning after he wakes up, surprisingly I'm allowed to go to the bathroom, have quick shower, drink my coffee and sometimes even have a breakfast. Yes, my baby is just great, but something tells me mobile above his cot has something to do with it...
We received this mobile in post as a gift from my son's Godmother, she ordered online and had it shipped to our address. It arrived in two days with a gift receipt, adequately packed and looking fab! The box contained a mobile, batteries and brochure. Batteries last very long - three months of almost daily use and they are still good. I never got to read the brochure as the thing is very straight forward. Mobile was put together in seconds - robust plastic base attaches to the cot using a huge plastic screw, and mobile just slides into its place - once you hear a "click", that's it. There is an extra protection screw that screws to the middle of the rotating part, but not sure what it's for as it's perfectly secure without it, too. There is a quick-remove button that relieves the mobile from its base so if you need space it can be removed and/or put back on extremely fast.
On the base, there are three colorful buttons with different melodies - Bach, Mozart and Nature. All three are very soft, lullaby-like, and change between the "songs" is very smooth. The Nature part is a soft melody with birds singing in the background. After three months of daily use, I am not annoyed to listen to it at all, and neither is my son. If you don't choose the melody by pressing a button, they just play in round for 20 minutes, then the mobile stops.
There is also a night light - a blue circle with a white horse in it, the blue part shines. It's a very soft light and in the evening with lights off, this light alone cannot be used for the baby to see the mobile, it's just not enough.
There are three stuffed animals on the mobile - a horse, a bunny and a bird. Each in connected to a plastic cone and there are plastic bits on the arms. As they are in angle, the cones move to shake the animals a bit for more movement, and plastic bits move, too making a repetitive sound that makes even parents sleepy :) The whole thing is very bright and colorful, but I don't see one color to be used more then others, which makes it perfectly suitable for both baby boys and baby girls.
The mobile can be on with or without music, and with or without light. However you cannot use music-only or light-only without mobile moving.
Price-wise it's on the more expensive end, costing £39.99 in Mothercare, at the time of writing this review it's, however, on sale for £27.99. I think this makes a perfect gift for a new baby and worth every penny. My son loves it since only few weeks old, and as he grows older he tries to speak (well, mumble) to the animals and it's pleasure to watch him.
