If you’re looking for the perfect shower gift or mobile for your own baby’s nursery, the best crib mobiles are a great idea for new parents! Whether you’re looking for the best musical crib mobile or a mobile that fits your baby’s nursery theme, we found 10 great options for you! Before we get into the crib mobile reviews, here are a few things you should know first, so you can pick the right mobile for you and your baby!
Theme: Crib mobiles often have common themes like animals, shapes, sports, popular children’s book or movie characters, and more! You can choose a mobile that coordinates with your nursery décor, or grab one that stands out for some added visual interest!
Musical: Some mobiles we reviewed play a variety of songs, some play only one song, and others don’t play music at all. This way, you can find one that both make your baby happy, and one that won’t drive you crazy!
Age: Buying a mobile that suits your baby’s age ensures that the mobile is safe to use on their crib. It also helps you find a mobile with the features you want to help your baby develop motor and listening skills!
Power: How your mobile works will depend on how you plan to use it. To play music for long periods, battery-powered mobiles are best. To play short songs, a wind-up option is great and doesn’t require extra batteries to run it.
Attaches to Crib: Most crib mobiles attach to the crib and hang over the side, so your baby can watch the toys spin while they fall asleep. Some crib mobiles can hang on the ceiling to keep your baby from pulling them down.
Size: The size of each mobile is incredibly important, especially if you want a mobile that fits into a small nursery space! We found models that are tall and grand, or small to fit in tight spaces and perfect for traveling!
Now that you know about different mobile features, let’s get into the reviews! We found 10 crib mobiles that work for boys, girls, or both (just in case you’re leaving the baby’s gender a surprise). They come in a variety of styles, colors, and prices so you can find the right one for you! If you’re short on time, no worries! Check out the Top Pick and Budget Pick to start, then come back later when you have more time!
