Fisher-Price Precious Planet, a Crib Mobile with Projection

 

Fisher-Price Precious Planet is a long-lasting crib mobile with projection and animal themed design. It grows with your child, as it converts to a crib-side music box with ceiling projection.

When serves as a crib mobile, it projects images on a cute canopy above baby’s head. The canopy keeps images close, make it easy for young baby to focus. As baby grows, you can remove the mobile’s arm with the canopy and leave the base on the crib. The mobile base then serves as a night light projector with colorful animal ceiling projection.

How do I operate with Fisher-Price crib mobile projector?

You can control the mobile with buttons on the mobile’s base. With three large colorful buttons on the front of the mobile, you can switch between sounds: a heartbeat, nature sounds, and lullabies.

There are also buttons on the side of the mobile’s base:

  • for turning on/off the mobile
  • for setting the volume level
  • for switching between different operating options *

* When you use Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 projection mobile as a crib mobile, you can choose between three different settings. The mobile can be set to play music only, or you can have the music and mobile spinning. And the last mode is of course with the projection, so mobile will spin, play music and projects images on the spinning canopy.

Another useful feature is operating with included remote control. Although the remote control doesn’t have a wide range, you can turn the mobile on/off from the doorway of your baby room. That’s completely enough to operate with the mobile, without disturbing or waking up the sleeping baby.
