Not All It's Cracked Up to Be :(
May 7, 2011
Well, I purchased this for my second son who is almost 10-months old. The Fisher-Price music box that my first son loved (and still loves), stopped helping him sleep, after we came back from our trip out-of-state. I was desperate to find something good for him, to keep him from screaming when I put him down to sleep. This did NOT work, to my dismay. He looked at it for all of 3 seconds and then tried to roll over and started screaming again. I thought this would be neat for him to have---especially since we've never used a mobile OR projector before, but appparently, he did not care for it. I like the idea of having a mobile and projector in one. The remote is a nice touch too...though I wish we could use it without having to open the nursery room door (ours sticks and makes a loud noise when we try to open it). I also wish that it was a little louder. Compared to the other Fisher-Price (Rainforest) music box that we have, this one was waaay too soft to hear over the air purifier we have in the room too. But even with the purifier off, it was still too soft for us. I even tried putting in a different set of batteries in hopes it would be louder, but that didn't do anything. The length of time that it plays is pretty good---even with everything on. The moving pictures is kind of hard to see, in my humble opinion. It's more like looking at animal shapes, rather than actual colorful pictures. Maybe it'll look better on the ceiling...??? Anyway, I hate writing negative reviews, but this one gets it. I'm hoping it'll end up helping....SOON...but for right now, it definitely isn't doing A THING. I still love my other Fisher-Price products though!
