Things to Consider Before Buying Cot Carousels

Why Is It Important to Buy a Mobile for My Baby?

Carousels are much more than decorations. They offer different benefits to the child’s development and accompany him in different stages of his development in early childhood:

  • Sensory Stimulation: The carousels are surprising because their main function is to capture the attention of your little one. The more colorful and bright they are, the more they will attract your attention. Furthermore, as the children grow, the carousels help to better understand the distances and develop their perception of depth.
  • Relaxation: The movements and sounds produced by the carousels can make the baby relax before sleeping. A sweet melody is perfect for making your little one doze off.
  • Development of Motor Skills: Carousels stimulate and excite children who feel encouraged to move to interact. The little ones follow the movements of the mobile and try to touch them. The movements favored by the carousels contribute to developing their fine and coarse motor skills, as well as their coordination.

Which Is Better: A Battery or Wind-Powered Carousel?

It depends on how you want to use it. With batteries or wind, the carousels turn equally. The rotation of the wind-blowers will obviously be much slower, but just as relaxing for the child.

Also, if there is no breeze in your baby’s room, it is difficult for him to turn. The advantage of battery-powered mobile games is that they do not depend on the wind and are more stimulating. The rotary movement is more constant and is often accompanied by sounds and lights.

Are the Crib Mobile Safe?

Yes, but it is important to take some precautions. Choose a carousel that does not have many small parts: they can come off, fall inside the cradle, and can cause suffocation.

Young children need to have the carousel near their face to distinguish it. After about five months, your baby can already raise his arms and legs and try to take it. We advise you to move the carousel when the child reaches this stage of his motor development.

Purchase Criteria

There are so many mobile games on the market that it is easy to get lost in shapes and colors. When you decide to take a carousel for your child’s cradle, there are some things you need to consider:

  • Flexibility in use
  • Functions
  • Defects
  • Design

Flexibility in Use

Many manufacturers keep in mind that a child does not sleep only in the cot. Portable carousels are perfect for children who spend a lot of time in the car, for example, and need help falling asleep. A portable mobile must be small and practical, to be able to hook or attach on different surfaces.


Carousels with batteries can be much more than simple colors and circular movements. Many carousels can project stars or other relaxing figures that entertain the child at night. There are also many carousels with removable parts so that the baby can sleep outside the crib and have familiar items nearby.


When choosing your carousel, always consult the reviews of other parents to make sure that the attachment system is compatible with your baby’s crib. Most of the carousels tend to adapt to any type of bar or support, but it is worth making sure that other parents have not had any problems.


As we have seen before, carousels are not just simple decorations. Obviously we know that they tend to be one of the focal points of your child’s bedroom. Therefore, it’s nice that they have a nice design. If your child’s room has a theme (jungle or sea, for example) it is easy to find carousels to match.

There are also companies committed to creating less flashy quality carousels. However, it is worth remembering that carousels with less or less bright colors will not attract the child’s attention easily, that is, they will not fulfill their purpose.

The carousels with high contrast colors, especially black and white, are particularly stimulating for babies of a few months. Keep this in mind if you want the mobile you choose to contribute to your child’s sensory development from the start.


Your baby will benefit greatly from the carousel. Carousels contribute to the sensory, motor, and cognitive development. A carousel that performs gentle movements and plays sweet melodies can help your child relax and fall asleep peacefully.

There are many mobile devices on the market: battery or wind, with built-in, removable, portable lights and projectors. To decide which type is suitable, it is important to try to imagine what the routine will be with the arrival of the child and determine which carousel is most suitable. It is also important to evaluate what functions you are looking for in the carousel.
