Buying toys for infants and toddlers is more complicated than it sounds. How much does it cost? How much clutter will it add? Will your child play with it in six months? Will they play with it at all? That's what makes legos and blocks so special -- they have a long entertainment lifespan. A conventional mobile, by contrast, often stops entertaining kids within a few months.
But Fisher-Price has a solution: a device that includes a mobile and a projector, plus a slew of extra features to sweeten the deal -- all for the surprisingly affordable $70. It certainly isn't a must-buy product, but for most parents, the Fisher-Price Smart Connect 2-in-1 Projection Mobile offers a solid long-term investment.
The Fisher-Price Projection Mobile has it all. First off, it's got the standard-issuepreprogrammed into it. It also has a dim light for checking on your child in a dark room without waking them. Plus, the mobile can spin automatically, and the projector can shoot images onto the inner dome of the mobile. The device also listens for your child's cries, and will send you push notifications if it sounds like the kiddo is waking up.
If that sounds like a lot of features for $70, that's because it is. And you can even control all those features and set them on timers via Bluetooth using the iOS and Android app.
