Fisher-Price projects the future of baby techThis 2-in-1 Projection Mobile packs in the extra goodies
[MUSIC] Buying toys for your kid is always a tough, cost benefit analysis. How much does it cost? How much clutter does it add? How long will he use it? Will he even like it? So a gadget like the Fisher Price smart connect two in one projection mobile is an interesting fine, It's definitely not a must buy product and at 70 bucks is a little bit pricy but its got a lot of really cool features packed up at sleeves. First up, you can play music in various ambient noises here which is pretty much standard issue on devices like this but more importantly is has a mobile that moves automatically and the projector that shoots images Under the dome inside of the mobile. As your kid gets older you can also remove the mobile and project the images directly onto the ceiling instead. This is a cool combination of features that gives the conventional mobile a much longer lifespan. That plus small touches like app connectivity, a sound monitor that And you push notification if your kid starts crying and a light to check on your kid in a dark room makes this product a great bundle for the price. The smart connect mobile definitely isn't perfect though. I was disappointed by the fact that there is only one trajection reel so you can't see different animals on the ceiling or the alphabet or different things like that And also you can use the Bluetooth functionality on the speakers to play your own music plus I wish you could set it up over things like a cart seat or a sweeper rather than just the crib at the end of the day the fisher price smart connect mobile really works on multiple levels specially if you're looking for a device that does it all.
