If you are a regular reader of Hip little one you may have noticed a reoccurring theme in my posts: sleep. It’s obvious that I could do with some more of it and we are slowly getting there, all it takes is patience and a bit of help from some fabulous little gadgets. After five years of almost daily use our trusty old mobile recently stopped working so we upgraded to this gorgeous new Magical Night Mobile by Tiny Love:
At Tiny Love they know how tricky baby bedtime can be (and how much babies and parents need their sleep!) so they designed their new Magical Night Mobile with lots of clever features to help your baby fall (and stay) asleep peacefully. Suitable from birth the charming animal themed mobile grows with your child through three stages so it can be enjoyed for a long time to come and is a fabulous investment for new parents.
As we all know a soothing tune can be a great tool to help little ones get to sleep which is why the Magical Night Mobile plays nine different tunes (in three different categories) that can be started by the simple push of a button. The volume is easy to adjust and music plays for a lengthy thirty minutes, by then our daughter is usually fast asleep. The three round buttons are easy to find in the dark and once your baby gets older he can turn the music on all by himself. Our 9-month old has already started playing DJ when she wakes up in the morning, she doesn’t always go back to sleep but either way it keeps her happy and entertained.
In the early days (0-5 months) the Magical Night Mobile will catch the gazing eyes of little newborns with the cute, dangling animals friends that slowly spin around under the canopy. The continious movement, bright colours and interesting shapes will grab their attention and will help keep them happy while they drift off to sleep. But that’s not all, the mobile also works as a projector with sweet animal images being displayed on the canopy which is the perfect distance for young babies to look at.
As your baby gets older and starts rolling around and sitting/standing up (5-18 months) the Magical Night Mobile canopy can be removed, that way your baby can still listen to the familiar tunes that have by now become an unmissable part of the bedtime routine and at the same time discover an exciting new mode of play: a ceiling projection. At this stage children are able to see that much further and can follow with their eyes all the moving animal patterns that appear and disappear on the ceiling above their bed.
Even later on (18 months+) your baby, who is by now almost turning into a toddler, can still sleep with their loyal bedtime companion. The Magical Night Mobile can now be removed from the cot and placed on a bedside table or drawers, with the canopy reattached the mobile turns into an adorable bedside music box while projecting a delightful starry night sky on the ceiling.
The Tiny Love Magical Night Mobile (RRP $99) runs on 4 C-size batteries (not included) and can easily be attached to most standard cots.
