1. Fisher-Price Moonlight Meadow Smart Connect 2-in-1 Projection Mobile – Mummyccinos Choice


The first baby mobile comes from a well known and well respected brand,  Fisher Price. We will look at the Fisher-Price Moonlight Meadow Smart Connect 2-in-1 Projection Mobile first in our list. It’s our favourite mobile so that’s why we’ve rated it 5 stars and why it’s number 1 on our list.

This mobile is so cool, you can control the movement, the sounds and the visuals from your smart device using the smart control app. The sounds include 30 minutes of lullabies, white noise and nature sounds. The lights include a full colour rotating light show and a amber nightlight.

If your little one is a younger baby, then they can watch a light show on the mobile canopy. When your baby is older, the animal mobile is removed and they can watch the show projected on the ceiling.

It comes with 3 plush animal characters which are a fox, a raccoon and an owl.


Benefits for babys development.

  • The animals and the light show promote visual and eye-tracking skills
  • The sounds and music encourage audio development.

8 Manhattan Toy Wimmer-Ferguson Infant Stim-Mobile for Cribs

Best Baby Mobiles

This mobile is made from Manhattan Toy. It comes from their award winning Wimmer Ferguson infant collection. Wimmer Ferguson are the original innovator of black and white developmental toys and in our opinion the best baby mobiles for early visual development.

It’s quite a simple mobile, as it isn’t powered in any way and it’s really good for early visual development as it displays high contrast colors and images.

The mobile comes with 10 cards that are interchangable so you can mix it up and make the mobile only show simple patterns or more complex ones. A really cool feature about this is the fact that the cards are marked by age, so you can change them as your baby gets older.

You can adjust the cord on the mobiles length to make it shorter or longer depending on how developed your babies vision is.

The clasp doesn’t fit all sizes of crib, so may be difficult to attach.


  • Cards are interchangable
  • Cord length is adjustable
  • Not Powered
  • Can be difficult to attach cards
  • May not fit all crib sizes

9 Lambs & Ivy Woodland Tales Musical Mobile – Best Wind Up Mobile

When you wind it up it plays Brahms’ Lullaby.
