This mobile was easy to assemble with clear instructions (and probably could have been assembled just fine without the instructions, too).  The volume control is easy to adjust (off-low-high), and it's also easy to set exactly what will play when you start the mobile -- just the audio, the audio and mobile, or audio with mobile and projection.  It is annoying that you cannot set it to JUST the mobile or JUST the projector, but overall it's not that big a deal.  My biggest complaint about the audio (with whatever else you have set to play) is that it plays for a while, then stops for a while, then starts back up if you don't shut it off.  When it wasn't playing, I'd forget to turn it off until it started back up again, frequently in circumstances that disturbed my baby.  I just wanted it to go through one play cycle and shut itself off.

There are three options for audio, heartbeat/womb sounds, nature sounds, or classical music (featuring Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven).  You can press the button repeatedly for the nature and the classical music to rotate through the selections they have for each (I think 2 for nature, not sure how many in classical).

The stuffed animals attach easily to the mobile. They aren't easy for the baby to remove, but the way they are attached, they come free from the mobile without breaking anything (which is always a concern for me with my strong little boy and his grabby hands).

Honestly, by the time we got this mobile, my son was too old to be entertained by lying on his back and watching the mobile spin around with or without the projector on.  I believe the mobile is recommended for up to 5  months, and we received this as a Christmas present when he was 6 months old.  The main entertainment he got out of it was from trying to pull the animals off the mobile while it was moving.  However, I can definitely see this item being very soothing and entertaining to a smaller baby.

we bought this for my son when he was a few months old, after trying another company's version which didn't work well at all.  my son is now almost two years old and he still loves this.  he turns it on everynight when he is falling asleep and watches the pictures on the ceiling... except it recently stopped rotating, so he is stuck looking at one animal image.  the music and nature sounds work so he's still happy.  i love the remote control feature, as i can sneak to the doorway and turn it on or off without him seeing me.  i also love how it has music, heartbeat and nature sounds - all soothing for baby and provide a good variety.  the canopy feature is nice, though we didn't use it for long since he was starting to pull up.  the attachment to the crib works well (we have a convertible) though I do worry that he can look directly down into the light coming up from the machine - i'm not sure how they'd prevent this but it seem dangerous for young eyes!

Bedtime would not be the same without it!

By 

from La Vista, NE

Comments about Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Mobile:

My daughter loves this mobile. The spinning portion features adorable stuffed animals, including a beat, an alligator, lion and a whale. The projector beams a rotating picture onto the mobile. My daughter's favorite part is the heartbeat sound, which helps soothe her to sleep each night. The device also makes nature sounds and plays classical music. Only 9 out of 10 because it would be nice to have a setting that used the projector without sound.

Best mobile ever!

By 

from Placentia, CA

Comments about Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Mobile:

We love this mobile! Our daughter loves this mobile too! We love it for several reasons. It is more than just a mobile because of the projector. This mobile was able to grow with our daughter. When our daughter was little we used the mobile only. The cute little animals would move around while our daughter laid underneath. She loved the animals. They were her friends and she would talk to them. As she grew up we used the projector. the projector showed baby animals. It is quite cute. The projection shot up on the umbrella of the mobile. this mobile could be removed so the projection could be shown on the ceiling. There are three different sound settings, classical, nature, and heartbeat. We used the classical music the whole time. I think this is the best mobile out there. We still use this mobile now and our daughter is one years old. She likes being able to see the projection on the ceiling before she sleeps. The only downside about this is that it uses up a lot of batteries.

Best mobile for your money

By 

from Dublin, OH

Comments about Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Mobile:

This mobile is fantastic! Not only is it a traditional mobile with hanging characters that rotate above the baby's head, but it's also a projector! I've found that my daughter enjoys the mobile most when both the characters are rotating and the projector is turned on. I'm excited to know that when she gets older we'll still be able to use this mobile by detaching the rotating characters and simply using it as a projector with sounds. Another feature of this mobile that I enjoy is the sound options. You can choose from rainforest sounds, heatbeat sounds, or classical music. You can also choose from two volume settings. It's just nice to be able to have so many options. I would say the best feature about this mobile though is the remote control. You can use the remote control to turn the mobile on or off from a distance. This remote is so good that I've actually slid it under the door of my baby's room and was able to turn it on. I give this mobile 5 gold stars!

Love this nighttime delight!

Comments about Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Mobile:

I cant say enough about how absolutely adorable this mobile is! This was the first thing on the baby registry for our first son (our room theme was precious planet) and let me tell you what- I will DEFINITELY be saving this for babies to come! The characters on this are just adorable as can be. There is a lion, polar bear, whale, and much more! You can see them chasing each other playfully around and around. Very cute. This product also comes with some great sound features. You can have motion with no sound, sound with no motion, heart beat sounds (which we all know are very soothing to a baby), a few types a music and volume controls. Great little mobile. Fits perfectly onto my crib and doest interfere with the bumper or anything else. Only con to this is D batteries, if you would even consider that a con. I dont think it goes through batteries that often at all! Great buy for any parent to be. Looks slightly more boyish but could be used for any animal loving gender!

Best mobile!

By 

from Covina, CA

Comments about Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Mobile:

We received this mobile as a baby shower gift and was so pleased with it. This mobile grew with our child. He was able to use it as a baby and then also as a toddler. The mobile was hung on his crib and he was able to look at the animal going around and see the projection on the umbrella that held the animals. when he got older we removed the umbrella which allowed the projection to go on the ceiling. Our son loves the animals that are displayed fro mthe projector. We really liked this mobile because we were able to use it for a long time. We also liked how there was a remote that we could use to turn the mobile on or off without disturbing him when he was sleeping. the one thing that we didn't like about this mobile was that it used up a lot of batteries. During our son's first year we used about four sets of batteries. The mobile is so worth the price of the batteries. It has made our son happy and so we are happy too.

Very cute.

By 

from Wooster, OH

Comments about Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Mobile:

This is such a cute mobile that even my almost 3 year old will lay and watch it with his brother. We have taken the mobile part off and left the projection to play on the ceiling and it works much better IMO. I do have to place a blanket behind it to allow it to align right on the ceiling. It just wasn't very visable before and my son is old enough to stand and pull the animals off.

My biggest con is that the remote has to be pointed right at the base for it to work so the chance of disturbing baby is still rather high. Other than that I love it. It matche the hand-me-down jungle nursey theme from my older and brings a fresh look to it. The music isn't too bad, but I keep it down and play the Sleep Sounds cd over it all night anyway. Perhaps when he's older he'll enjoy the music more.

The battery life is typical of these sorts of things. I really dislike going through so many expensive batteries but a happy baby is worth it! I can't wait to make the C/D battery switch to rechargables and I hope this works well with them.

Wouldnt Be without this mobile

By 

from Gunter, TX

Comments about Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Mobile:

I absouluelty LOVE this mobile! With my first 2 daughters projectors were not an option so I was thrilled to see this. I was a littl ehesitant because of the price, but now I would buy it for any mom. My daughter is 2 months old and loves both projection on the mobile and on the ceiling. This is one of the few things that keep her attention log enough for me to be able to take a shower (and a long shower is even possible). The remote makes it very easy to turn on when she wakes up fussing at night without her seeing me. I also am very happy with the 20 minute timer on. The volume is not too loud as with some baby products. The speed of the characters turning is slow enough for her to be abl to look at everything but not so slow she gets bored. It does have the options of music, nature sounds, and heartbat. The music is not the the annoying music that so often comes on baby products. It has a strap that attaches it the crib which is easier for me than the typical attachment where you screw a piece on. Also the strap allows you to attach it to other things such as a bouncy chair. It does have some downfalls. It uses D batteries and they die in about a week. I would reccomend haveing two sets of rechargeable batteries for this product. Those are my onl complaints and it wouldnt stop me from buying one.

Precious Planet Mobile is a must have

By 

from Placentia, CA

Comments about Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Mobile:

Our daughter loves this.  when she was able to see colors we set this up on her crib.  We liked the different options that were available for this mobile.  You could use this mobile alone and have the animals move around in a circle.  The animals are small stuffed animals and are very cute.  Another option is to have the projector on while the mobile is moving around.  The animal characters for this toy are very cute.  There are 3 music settings for this toy.  The first is classical musical, the second is nature sounds, and the third is a heartbeat.  We mostly have the mobile set to classical musical.  There is also a remote control that goes with this mobile.  When we know that the music is about to stop we can turn it back on quickly with the remote without having to disturb our daughter.  When our daughter was able to pull herself up to stand we took the mobile part of the toy off and just used the projector.  It was nice to display her "animal friends" up on our ceiling.  The only negative thing about this mobile is that it goes through batteries really fast.

This mobile has very soothing music and sounds. I love the fact that it has a remote to turn it on and off. It is very secure when attaching it to the side of the crib. The only thing that I didn't like about it is that it seemed to go through batteries pretty fast.

Baby loves his Precious Planet Mobile!

By 

from Lynnwood, WA

Comments about Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Mobile:

I bought this for my 2 month old to entertain him during bed time/nap time while I was trying to put his big brother to bed.  Overall he really likes it.  The animals are all eye catching and I can see him following them around with his eyes.  The projection is fun and bright, and I am excited to see what it is like when you take the spinning part off.  Basically if he doesn't want to be in his crib then he is going to ignore the mobile but otherwise he is definately entertained by it.  The sound choices are nice, his favorite is the nature sounds... very soothing.

The unit was easy to put together, I did it myself and it was also easy to install onto the crib.  I have found that it does interfere with the breathable bumper I have on his crib but oh well.  I haven't had to change the batteries since I bought it which was months ago so it's definately not a battery drain.

I would definately buy this mobile again and I think that I will be able to get my moneys worth.
