Mobile on the crib: how to choose a magic carousel
In the first months of life, the child is still not moving much and the greatest amount of information about the world around him is received through hearing and sight. Therefore, the main task of parents in this period is to surround the baby with bright and pleasantly sounding objects. One of the most popular toys for the youngest of this type is the mobile on the bed. How to choose the right carousel and what kind of music are they?
We choose by design, do not forget about the quality
Today, any large manufacturer of toys and accessories for newborns offers children's mobile phones in the assortment. Each mother wants to surround her baby with the most beautiful and useful things, so do not hesitate to pay attention to the appearance of the carousel. The first and one of the most important requirements is the quality of the toy. All parts must be firmly attached to each other, plastic, rubber and wood should not have an unpleasant smell. Fabric elements only with neat seams, without protruding threads and poured filler. The details of the toy should not be painted when touching with hands. In addition, it is desirable that the mobile on the bed did not have small parts, because in 6-7 months the child will touch the toys. It is much more convenient to use a carousel with removable elements. So it will be much easier not only to erase toys, but if you want, you can change them, install not all, but several of those available in the set. Soft or hard elements are a matter of taste, but keep in mind that for a baby prone to allergic reactions it is better to choose plastic or wooden toys.
What does the music phone sing for the crib?
The game with the mobile is to observe the baby by rotating the carousel with toys and listening to the melodies. Later the child will begin to reach for bright elements and, perhaps, even independently include music. When buying, be sure to listen to standard tunes. Most often manufacturers offer us classical works, children's songs or sounds of nature. Of course, the more tunes, the better, as each kid has his own musical preferences, and you will notice this as soon as you start using the mobile regularly. If you want, you can find a mobile phone for a crib, capable of reproducing the records chosen by parents, or even independently save and play sounds. An important function is adjusting the volume. While the child is awake, it is allowed to listen to the melodies louder, and if you want to put the baby to sleep under a rotating carousel, it's better to make it quieter.
Is it a mechanical or electronic mobile phone?
An important condition for choosing a children's musical carousel for a crib - the principle of his work. Electronic batteries or accumulators are required, the mechanical one will have to be manually started each time. Mobiles of the second type in most cases are much lower. Electronic can boast of the presence of remote controls and timers inclusion. Which of these functions should the mobile have on the crib each parent must decide personally. Be sure to also pay attention to the type of attachment and its compatibility with the existing baby cot. In a large store you will also find small toys of this type for use in the bathroom or attaching to a stroller-cradle.
