One product that inevitably makes a pre-baby registry or list of items to get for the nursery is a crib mobile. The new Soothe ‘n Groove Mobile from Tiny Love has the qualities many moms look for – colorful creatures, soothing music and a night light – but it has the added benefit to be able to grow beyond the crib and into toddlerhood. The music box can be removed and separate from the mobile to be a stand alone white noise machine and night light.


Meet the New Tiny Love  Soothe ‘n Groove Mobile

As a crib mobile, the Soothe ‘n Grove Mobile offers several innovations that parents will appreciate. Three brightly colored, friendly faced animals hang from the rotating mobile and the music box has the widest range of music currently available in any crib mobile. Eighteen different soothing tunes play 40 minutes of non-repetitive music from two high-quality built-in speakers. In addition to traditional nursery classics by Mozart and Bach, melodies from additional music categories can be played, including classical, world music and jazz, among others. Additional features include music shuffle mode, nature and “white” sounds, a calming night light, baby activation button and varied volume control.

 As a baby grows, parents can detach the rotating mobile piece and the music box can remain attached to the crib. The music box also has a carry handle for baby to use outside of the crib, and it can sit on a table top, which is convenience while traveling.

Soothe ‘n Groove Mobile Review

First things first, it’s totally worth noting that the recommended ages for the Soothe ‘n Groove Mobile are from birth through 24 months, but my 3 year old is sleeping with the music box. She loves listening to the music and, until I suggested she take this to bed, she was sleeping with a light on in her room. This sweet music box serves as her white noise and night light to help put her to sleep. And, again, she’s 3! I’m wondering how I’ll get it back from her when baby arrives…

The Soothe ‘n Groove Mobile has three arms, each with a colorful friend similar to Tiny Love style. The arms move in a unique patented rotation to entertain baby. The real star of the Mobile, I think, is the music box which has 6 different categories (like White Noise, Classical, Nature) with 18 different tunes.

The power button allows you to leave control up to baby. If your little one is old enough, she can push the large button to start the music on her own. When initiated, the music will play for 40 minutes. The music can play in one category or choose random for a selection of music from all of the musical categories. You can adjust the volume and even operate the mobile without music, if you prefer.

The night light is subtle and just enough light to grant baby (or my preschooler) some comfort and allow you to peek at your sleeping tot. And, as I mentioned, the mobile easily transitions to a noise machine and night light only. Removing the arm is simple (but not easy enough that baby or tot can do it) and you can leave the music box attached to the crib. The music box also has a cute handle so your little one can walk around and listen to music like she’s carrying a boom box circa 1984.

To Buy or Not to Buy

To Buy… Before the Soothe ‘n Groove Mobile I sort of thought all mobiles were the same. This Tiny Love product adds longevity and value to the product by allowing the music box to function independently from the moving mobile. Both my children slept with white noise machines until they were nearly two so this product would easily serve that purpose.

Or Not to Buy… If you’re planning a modern nursery the colors and characters might not fit the design aesthetic.
