Baby products were the same for the longest time, and then suddenly everything changed. If you had a baby over five years ago, you may have stored many things away in the event you had another baby and could use the same things for the next. If you go shopping today, you are going to find that most things have changed so much your older stuff seems ancient in comparison. Baby crib mobiles are one of these things. You can still find older versions, but the ones of today are almost a different product.

If you prefer to use the older type of baby crib mobiles, there are plenty out there that you can buy and use for your new baby. These have something hanging down from simple strings and can be wound to turned on (if they take batteries). They play music as they gently go around in a circle. Much of the music is calm and soothing to help baby fall asleep. You can find these in many stores and you may find some to match the baby bedding you are planning on getting for your nursery. They are not fancy, but they work wonders.
You may want to see what else is out there in the way of baby crib mobiles before you settle on getting the older style of mobile. All you have to do is to look online or in the stores and you will see what is out there. These newer models can do many new things that your baby will love. You may be amazed at what you find. These also come in many colors and will match what you want to do with your nursery. You may not find an exact match, but you can usually find something that works.
New baby crib mobiles have many great features. Some come with a light that will display different shapes onto a surface, usually the ceiling or a wall if you prefer. You can find them with stars that rotate along the ceiling. The light is not too bright to keep them up, but will entertain them while they are trying to go to sleep, or can soothe them when they wake up in the night. Along with the glowing stars you will also have music that can play too, just like older models. These almost always take batteries, which are one downfall, as they can go through them fast.
These new types of baby crib mobiles can also turn into crib toys, you can buy them both separate. Crib toys are often interactive toys that keep baby amused when they wake up. They can be kicked to make music in some cases, or they may play music when baby touches them. Some have mirrors too, which often offer babies hours of entertainment as they learn about their own bodies and their own separate identity. Either way, these items make crib life a little less boring for a baby eager to explore the world or that need a little help nodding off for the night.
