Overall, this was a great buy. I love it and, most importantly, Hannah loves it. It runs about $20, which isn’t bad considering how well it stands up to frequent use. You can buy it online at Amazon or find it in stores.
I’d been looking for any sort of mirror or activity station to attach to Hannah’s crib…so she would stop trying to chew her way out. I didn’t want anything overly huge or bulky, but wasn’t too sure what to get. Eventually, I ran across this at Wal-Mart. Hannah immediately saw it and was all but lunging out of the shopping cart trying to get it off the shelf. I figured it was worth a try since Hannah seemed to be really taken with it.
Attaching it to the side of the crib is easy. It ties on with two thick strings. So far they have held up very well under Hannah’s daily assaults. I was worried at first about them coming undone, but I’ve noticed that the knots get tighter the more she pulls on it. If fact, I can’t get one of them undone anymore.
The base of the mirror has four activity feet: two of them are rattles, one squeaks, and the other jingles. The mirror itself has withstood hours of drool, poking, kicking, and chewing…and still looks almost new. The best feature of this item is that she can use it for a while. It has a stand so that you can set it on the floor, so I’m sure it will eventually find it’s way to her nightstand once she was a toddler bed.
