The Design

The Fisher-Price musical crib mobile consists of a plastic base, with three plush toys hanging from the top. The Woodland Friends crib mobile has a plush fox, raccoon, and a bear. And on the Rainforest Friends, there are a plush lion, zebra, and elephant.

I like that even though its base is made of plastic, it doesn’t look cheap or kitschy. I have already reviewed numerous crib mobiles, where a cheap plastic look was a big drawback for me. The cute Fisher-Price musical crib mobile design was a pleasant surprise!

On the top of the mobile’s arm sits a cute owl or parrot, depending on which version you choose. They provide playful, baby-activated tunes and later transform into a take-a-long musical box.

I also appreciate that the mobile is not heavy and easily attaches to various cribs and stroller canopies.

Efficiency

The Fisher-Price 3-in-1 musical mobile is a simple yet very efficient baby mobile.

Its colorful look and contrasts quickly catch the baby’s attention. But the mobile’s slow-spinning and soft music can also efficiently soothe your baby to sleep.

The Fisher-Price Rainforest and Woodland Friends mobile is a 3-in-1 baby crib mobile, meaning you are getting three toys joined in one unit. That increases its efficiency and adds a high added value to the mobile!

Firstly, you can use it as a crib mobile or as a stroller mobile attached to the stroller’s canopy. And second, the Fisher-Price 3-in-1 musical mobile also grows with your child!

When your baby outgrows the mobile, detach the toy from the top of the mobile. It will transform into a take-along musical box that can entertain your toddler for many years to come.

Fisher-Price 3-In-1 Musical Mobile Review

The crib mobile

The mobile rotates in a clockwise direction.

After 10 minutes, the animal mobile slowly spins to a stop, but the soothing music continues to play for another 10 minutes. The mobile shuts down automatically after 20 minutes.

Such a setting reduces the visual stimulation before sleeping and helps the baby fall asleep more easily. Another benefit of this feature is also teaching your baby to fall asleep alone.

The Fisher-Price musical mobile plays up to 20 minutes of instrumental and soothing music. I was a bit disappointed that you can not switch between sounds, as it plays only on a continuous loop! So, those who like the sound versatility may prefer the Tiny Love Soothe ‘N Groove or VTech baby crib mobile.

This baby crib mobile also doesn’t possess a night light or ceiling projector. If you want it, you might like a Fisher-Price Precious Planet or Fisher-Price Butterfly Dreams crib mobile.

Stroller mobile

For use as a stroller toy, remove the linkable mobile under the owl or parrot. It easily clips to almost any stroller canopy, so your baby can enjoy familiar toys wherever she goes.

This feature sometimes creates confusion amongst parents! They are not sure if the mobile spins and plays music when it is on the stroller. It does not! It rotates and plays when it’s attached to the base only! Nevertheless, toys will be hopping on the stroller’s canopy because of the stroller’s movement, so babies still like them a lot.

However, if you want a motorized unit on the stroller, consider buying a Tiny Love portable baby mobile.

Take-along musical toy

When your baby outgrows the mobile, detach the owl or parrot on the top and remove the hanging toys. The owl and parrot serve as a musical box for your toddler now. They even have a small handle for easy carrying around.


Fisher-Price 3-in-1 musical mobile Safety

The Fisher-Price musical mobile attaches to the crib with a special connector on the back of the mobile’s base. It wraps around the top railing and fastens with a plastic belt. Super easy and super strong. Such a system is very effective, as it adapts to almost any size and shape of a crib rail.

There is also an added string, which you tie around one of the crib slats. It prevents the mobile’s detachment and adds to the overall safety.

The whole Fisher-Price musical crib mobile is not heavy and easily attaches to various cribs.

Frequently asked questions

about Fisher-Price musical mobile

1. Can I attach the Fisher-Price Woodland or Rainforest Friends mobile to a Pack ‘N Play or bassinet?

No, it does not fit on a Playard or bassinet. It is for a traditional crib with gaps between bars.

2. Can I turn the music off?

You can adjust the volume low and high, but animals spin only when the music is on. However, the music soothes babies to sleep, so I don’t consider this a problem. Animal rotation stops after 10 minutes, while the soothing music continues to play up to 20 minutes.

3. Does Fisher-Price 3-in-1 musical mobile attach to a crib with thick rails or round spindles?

The Fisher-Price 3-in-1 musical mobile fits on cribs with different sized and shaped rails. It attaches by pulling tight two adjustable straps on the mobile base.

4. How long can my child use the mobile?

Around 5 months. However, if your baby doesn’t reach the mobile and can’t pull the toys down, you can use it longer. As a take-along toy, your child can use it as longs as he/she wants.


The Verdict

If you like simple but effective things, the Fisher-Price 3-in-1 musical mobile is perfect for you! It doesn’t have high-tech accessories, such as a Bluetooth operation or ceiling projection. However, it does have everything for your baby’s needs.

It will entertain or soothe your baby. Not only that, the Fisher-Price 3-in-1 musical mobile will help in baby skills development. The soft, spinning animal friends help enhance eye-tracking and visual skills, while gentle music helps stimulate hearing and listening skills.

And last but not least, it can grow with your baby!
