    Editorial Review

    The era of no-compromises handheld gaming has arrived. Get ready for immersive, 3D gaming on a console that is poised

    to change the way we think about portable devices. With wireless internet, video and digital music playback, and incredible data storage and connectivity options, the Sony PSP--or PlayStation Portable--is a complete solution for the mobile digital lifestyle. Sony has hit the mark by combining both horsepower and groundbreaking features into a package that weighs just a hair more than half a pound.

    Design
    The PSP's exceptional performance comes from a 333 MHz processor that dwarfs the speed of competing handheld consoles. Add this polygon-pushing muscle to 4 MB of fast DRAM and 32 MB of embedded RAM, and you've got a device with graphics rendering capabilities close to that of the PlayStation2. And because no game is complete without audio, the PSP is generously appointed with built-in stereo speakers, as well Dolby Digital 7.1 surround soundcapability. Sony has also pulled out all the stops with the PSP display. The bright, 4.3-inch LCD sports a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel resolution--plenty of real estate for heavy gaming action and widescreen-format movies. All of this is powered by a removable, and rechargeable, lithium-ion battery.



    Screen machine: The 4.3-inch display sports a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel resolution. Movies and games on the go have never been more gorgeous.

    From a controls perspective, the PSP is made for gaming. If you're familiar with a PlayStation controller, you'll be a pro at the PSP's controls in no time. Directional buttons, as well as an analog stick are provided. Meanwhile, the familiar left and right shoulder buttons, as well as triangle, circle, cross and square buttons are integrated into the device's slim case. Finally, home, select, and start buttons give you quick access and control over the PSP's important functions.



    To have and to hold: The PSP's easy-to-master controls are cleverly integrated into the device's slim profile.

    Supported Media
    At the heart of the PSP is a new, proprietary media format known as the Universal Media Disc, or UMD. Each UMD can hold 1.8 GB of data, enough room for rich and complex games. UMDs, which are housed in a protective cover, slide into the rear of the PSP. Sony has declared the UMD an open format for developers and media content owners, so movies, music and other media are on the horizon from third parties. Sony has also signed on many popular game developers for the platform, so a deep library of titles is on tap.

    While the UMD is great for read-only media such as games and movies, Sony solves the problem of data storage with the addition of a Memory Stick Duo slot. With Memory Stick Duo media, you can store your saved games, downloaded online content, personal video and audio files, and more. When you want access to these files from your PC, simply use the PSP's USB 2.0 port to turn the device into a fastportable media drive. Then, drag and drop files such as your photos, MP3s, and videos onto the PSP, just as you would any other removable storage device. The PSP ships with a 32 MB Memory Stick Duo, and additional media with higher storage capacities are available.



    Major media: Sony's PSP-compatible Universal Media Disc (UMD) can hold 1.8 GB of data.

    Connectivity
    The PSP blows away the competition in the connectivity department. Indeed, the PSP's ability to connect to the internet, and to other PSPs and USB-based peripherals, is a real advantage. At the top of the list is Wifi connectivity, or IEEE 801.11b. Use this wireless internet standard to connect to other gamers around the world for hot multiplayer action--all from your couch, or your local Wifi hotspot. As mentioned, the PSP's USB 2.0 port is great for PC connectivity, but it also opens the PSP up for a whole range of future peripherals. Sony has plans for the PSP in other ways, too; the unit's infrared port speaks of remote control capabilities in the near future.

    A Digital Companion
    If you haven't already guessed, Sony has positioned the PSP to be much more than a gaming device. Out of the box, the device is ready to serve as a portable video player and photo viewer. By using the new H.264 MPEG-4 video standard, Sony obviously has its eyes on making the PSP a robust video device with support for feature length movies and more.In addition, the PSP offers a great way to transport and share your photos in JPEG format. And let's not forget the music. Load up your favorite MP3-encoded songs onto a Memory Stick Duo and you've got a portable audio powerhouse. The device also supports Sony's ATRACaudio codec, so you can play songs acquired from Sony's Connect Online Music Store. Sony even ships a nifty pair of earbuds--complete with an inline remote control-- with the PSP.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Way too much $$$!!!
    The PSP is good I'll give it that, but I think that Sony is cramming too much stuff into thier first handheld. Make it more simple. plus it is WAAAAAAAY too much money, my parents are not gonna spend that much for me, and it's just not worth that much, nor should anyone have to spend that much on a system meant for gaming, with a few extra goodies thrown in. You over obsesive gamers...-_-

    5-0 out of 5 stars way out in front
    I just got my new PSP. Initial impressions - a very serious piece of kit. It's beautifully constructed, but looks like it wouldn't survive a big drop. It certainly has an 'adult' feel to it - not the 'mainly for kids' that the Nintendo DS exudes.

    I loaded Ridge Racer in and was just taken aback by the quality of the graphics, game play and sound. It really is just like having a PS2 that you can stick in your back pocket.

    The quality of the movie trailers on the sample disc are just out of this world, as is the sound. The remote control has a light, really cheap feel to it but works perfectly well.

    Even being out of the box for an hour the screen is attracting dust underneath so a screen protector is definitely called for, as is a memory card-coz 32MB is no use at all!

    I was expecting a lot from the PSP having read many reviews, but it's actually exceeded my expectations. The large screen is just amazing - far ahead of anything else in it's class. I'm on the lookout for dead pixels - but so far the PSP is way ahead of it's competition.

    3-0 out of 5 stars pros and cons
    PSP is more suitable for extreme gamers. It's sleek, mature look are more suitable for teenagers or adults. For kids, I recommend GBA SP or GBA DS. The selection of games are more in tune with popular titles like POKEMON. PSP is more for teens as it has more action and maybe violence in it. The selection of games are more like racing, sports...things that usually does not appeal to children.

    Next, I want to enphasise on the use of memory sticks in PSP. Everything must be stored in memory sticks so it is a bit inconvenient. What more, the memory sticks cost quite a sum so be prepared to spend lots of money on them.

    But, the graphics on PSP are way better than those found on GBA. It is capable of displaying about 15 million colurs wherelse GBA DS can only display 260,000 colours only.

    So as to conclude the end of this review, PSP's graphics and features are good. But think about the amount of money to spend on memory cards...think twice. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars PS3's power puts it in the league of supercomputers
    The playstations are no longer just toys.The latest generation PS3 has processing power that puts it firmly in the league of supercomputers.
    PS3 can handle 2 teraflops of processing power(one teraflop=a trillion calculations per second).Prior to 2000,only three computers in the entire world had greater than 2 teraflops of computing power.Even upto 2003,there were only 29 supercomputers that would be faster than the PS3.Sony's PS3 is 35 times faster than its predecessor PS2.
    The new PS3 will be more than just one step forward for the gaming industry.With high performance graphics card in tow,and unbelievable polygon count,PS3 promises to deliver movie-quality
    images for majority of its games.PS3 also comes with a Blu-ray disc drive,the next generation of drives that can store upto 50 GB of information.PS3 is expected to launch in spring 2006.
    P.S.-The above info about PS3 was given here in the PS2 section since amazon does not have a link for PS3 as yet.Hope you found the info helpful.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I KNOW....
    I know HOW THE PS3 LOOKS LIKE THERE ARE 3 DIFFERENT COLORS! THE COLORS ARE SILVER,WHITE,AND BLACK. I KNOW HOW THE X-BOX 360 LOOKS LIKE AND NINTENDO REVOLUTION! ALSO THE NEW GAME BOY. GAME BOY MICRO! I KNOW HOW ALL THE NEW SYSTEMS THAT ARE COMING OUT LOOK LIKE!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good product which provides some different feeling.
    This is a good product.Why I say different feeling, because although it is another version of PS2, it is different because the loading of the games is quite faster than the old Playstation 2.So that I don't have to wait that long.Good product. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Ideal for transporting a sleeping baby, this three-piece travel system features a baby carrier that snaps into an included car seat base and stroller. For baby's safety, the car seat/carrier offers an adjustable five-point harness and is LATCH-equipped to fit securely in newer vehicles. An ergonomic handle makes lifting the carrier easy on the wrists. The stroller sports a lightweight, aluminum frame and has an easy, one-handed folding system, making it a good choice for outings from the car or for airplane travel. Once baby outgrows the carrier, she can ride forward-facing in the stroller, which offers a snug combination 3-point/5-point harness and several reclining positions. Swiveling nondeflatable wheels with front locks and a good suspension system provide a smooth ride to keep baby sleeping through the bumps. Parents will appreciate the pushbar that adjusts to the appropriate height and the large storage basket below the seat that lowers for loading with the tug of a handle and raises again for carrying. Other features include an organizer tray with two cup holders for adults, a food/cup tray for baby, and a large canopy with a viewing window. The carrier and stroller come in the more masculine Delancy fabric pattern, which is navy with purple accents. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great value - no complaints!
    We chose the Metrolite b/c it was lighter & took up less space in our city apartment (folds up & stands upright, although we usually store it in our car's trunk anyway).It has been so easy to use w/& w/o the infant car seat.It "offroads" very well (excellent wheels - important for going up curbs/grass, over bumps in sidewalk, etc.).The underneath basket is perfect for trips to the grocery store (can hold 3-4 bags of groceries).It has custom-adjustable reclining options so once baby is old enough to sit more upright, she can, and when she falls asleep while walking around it's easy to recline the seat back so she can rest w/o her head falling forward onto her chest.Love this stroller - so glad to have paid $99 for it, esp. when seeing all the Bugaboo Frogs around town here - we just bought a second, very lightweight umbrella stroller for travel (through airports, Maclaren Volo 2005 - great but seat doesn't recline, for older & bigger babies only) which is great, but this is still our favorite for around town.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great System
    we love this travel system-super lite, super easy to use. when the car seat is in the stroller, the hoods can be closed to leave baby in a dark, warm "cacoon" which is perfect for a sleepy newborn. most people i know bought the snap and go for the city but watching them get stuck on the sidewalks and take forever loading the seat made me realize how good i have it (they end up having to buy three strollers in the long run). strollers in the city are tough though, i have two for different reasons. this stroller is great everywhere except the subway, bus, etc. (metrolite is too bulky) so i have a lighter, really compact one for this and the metrolite for everything else.

    1-0 out of 5 stars STROLLER SEAT DOES NOT SIT UPRIGHT DO NOT BUY
    I bought this stroller/travel system for my third child.She is now 6mths old.She HATES not being able to sit upright.This stroller has a goofy draw string seat recline adjuster. BEWARE, sure you're newborn isn't going to care if they are sitting upright but no toddler or older baby will want to be leaned back like this all the time.This is incredibly inconvient and I'm hoping that I can return this stroller to the store right away.The stupidity of this design will probably make me steer away from Graco products down the road with our next child. This is just stupid, please think about it before you buy.Notice the people reviewing this with many stars have newborns, I'd like to see what their 8, 9, 10mths old think of laying back now?? ...

    Adding a little bit of extra comfort to baby’s world is always a wonderful thing and this big cushy chair from Nature’s Touch provides a lovely place for baby to either hang out and be entertained or take a quick snooze. It’s modeled after the popular Papasan chairs that are so often the purview only of grown-ups. In addition to the well-padded seat, there is a mobile of pleasant toys and a selection of electronic music, which we found to be much more soothing than is often the case and, mercifully, with adjustable volume. The seat can be set for swing or cradle setting and the liner is detachable and machine washable. --Charlie Williams ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't get by without it!
    This swing is fantastic.It is so soft and snuggly, my daughter likes sleeping in this more than her crib or her bassinette.The way that the seat reclines allows her to sleep comfortably in it even when she was very small without flopping over, and when she got older, it could be readjusted to let her look out into the room.Also, she loved the domed mirror on the mobile.She would look up and babble and coo at herself.The volume control for the music is great, and the motor is quiet.I would recommend this swing for every new baby!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This swing is my baby's Kryptonite!!
    I have a 5 month old baby and this swing is her Kryptonite. She can't resist falling asleep to the gentle natures sounds and the smooth rocking. I got this swing from the my coworkers and I was so excited to get it. It took awhile for her to be able to use it (she was too small). But now, when I can't get her to nap in her crib, I put her in her swing and she goes right out. She loves the toys, and she will stay in it for a long time. I have recommended this swing to everyone I know. It's a definite MUST!

    5-0 out of 5 stars hands down...THE BEST SWING!
    We could not be happier with our Papasan Swing, my daughter is 3 months old and has loved it since she was 2-3 weeks old.At first it was a way to get her back to sleep during those sleepless nights.Now it is just a nice place for her to relax, she loves staring at the mobile and the music is pleasant enough for me to play over and over...She'll take naps in it every once in a while but she would rather just hang out and enjoy it!We have not used the toy bar yet, but I imagine she will be enjoying it before too long! ...

    Editorial Review

    While a tad more expensive than most other baby carriers, BabyBjörn carriers offer parents some wonderful design features thatmake it well worth the extra money. By allowing you to hold your babysnugly against your chest, the carrier promotes a sense of comfort andcloseness between a parent and a child. It also allows you to maintaineye contact with and talk to your little one during trips to the store,walks around the house, and short hikes (for both mom and dad). Thecarrier's other big advantage is that it frees up both your hands whileyou carry your infant. The black carrier consists of a large triangularfront piece that supports baby's head and body, along with a set ofthick padded straps that are worn like a shoulder-and-waist harness.Newborns and smaller babies should always ride rear-facing in thecarrier, while older babies who can hold their heads upright unassistedcan ride forward-facing and enjoy the view ahead of them. Made ofmachine-washable 100 percent cotton, the carrier can be easily adjustedfrom the front for your baby's size. Although the carrier has beentested for use with babies who weigh from 8 to 25 pounds, some parentsfound that the carrier became uncomfortable to wear and placed a lot ofstrain on the lower back when it was used to carry a child weighingmore than 20 pounds. --Chris Burns ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't and won't live without it ...
    This is one of my most favorite baby products.My son loves it too.He went through the separation axiety phase a little early and when I wasn't able to put him down, my arms would feel like they were going to fall off.With the carrier I am able to do the dishes and the laundry and keep him happy all at the same time.He loves to dance with mommy, too, so I just put him in the carrier and dance with him that way.When he was younger, sometimes that would be the only way that I could put him to sleep.Also, I always seem to be cold, so having him in the carrier, right next to my chest, was a really inexpensive way to keep warm.Oh, and when we go out shopping we can carry him around in the carrier instead of having to lug a big stroller everywhere.If there were more stars I would definitely give more.I also love the fact that it's machine washable and it's easy to use.It doesn't take you 30 minutes just to put it on.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quality! Quality! Quality!
    This carrier feels safe when putting the baby in and taking the baby out because of the strong clasps.It can be shoved in the basket of a stroller because of its soft and small structure, thrown in the wash without worrying about all kinds of special instructions, and used at a moments notice because of its great design.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Depends on your baby
    My baby is colicky and has a very defined personality and she hates the Baby Bjorn. It's much too structured for her. She likes to put her hands around her face and keep her legs in different positions, which she can't do in the Baby Bjorn. I recommend a sling instead. (...) and my daughter has spent many hours in it. She can be in the position she likes and I can wander about the house doing whatever I want! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This swing is wonderful!
    My daughter loves it.I can put her in it and do little things around the house, which would almost be impossible if I didn't have this swing.She just sits in it and watches the fish go around.The cradle is great.I was able to put her in it the day I brought her home from the hospital.Now she is colicky, and the swinging side to side soothes her much better then the forward and back swinging motion.There are a couple things I would suggest changing on it like, the music and the mobile only play for about 15 mins, so you have to keep resetting it.Also, when my baby was first born the lowewst setting of the swing was really to fast for my daughter, so I just would rock her by hand for the first month until she put on more weight. I did have a problem with the mobile motor going up after the first 2 months. Fisher Price was wonderful.I called themon a friday and they sent me a newmobile right away.It came on mon. afternoon! I was very impressed!Ilove this swing!It is worth the money and gives us parents a little break when we need one!!It does use alot of batteries! But to me and my husband, the peice of mind this swing brings us, the $5 it cost to put batteries in it evert 2 months is worth it!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Nice, but is large, uses excessive batteries and broke
    I got this item as a gift from my employees at work. My husband chose this for our registry. Anyway, it is really nice and cute, but is really large for a smaller room, uses 4 d batteries almost every other week with use, and now the entire motor unit is broken after only 3 months of use. Fortunatly, the wonderful people at fisher price are replacing the unit at no charge to us!! There is a date code on the unit and I guess that proved that the item did not hold up. I personally would have liked something a little smaller and maybe something that would have a little less battery use. Also, like many reviews I read, this item does swing a little fast for my infant.

    2-0 out of 5 stars TOO FAST
    I bought this because a swing was essential when my little sister was a baby...however I was disappointed that the lowest speed setting is extremely fast for my son. He loves the bright colors and lights of the aquarium mobile, but the swing simply goes too fast to calm him down. Moreover, I don't feel that he's safe when the swing is turned on. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Perfect for naptime, playtime, or just "give Mom and Dad a break" time, this highly involved playard has what it takes to delight little ones. It features a thick, quilted pad for baby to roll around on and a mobile of smiling teddy bear faces to add a delightful distraction. But what makes this pack n' play different is the floorshow: it sports electronic lights, musical sounds, and even a vibration option. It collapses fairly easily but because there are so many special features it does end up being somewhat heavy so it's best used around the house rather than loaded up for heavy traveling. A detachable changing table with belt strap is also included to make this a full-service playard.--Charlie Williams ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars It depends what you are looking for....
    If you are looking for a highly portable play yard, this isn't the one to buy. There are cheaper options out there that will more than suit your needs. We were looking for a bedside bassinet and a unit that would make night time wakings easier on mom and later be a simple travel yard (by removing all the bells and whistles) .This has fit that bill pretty well.Feature by feature :

    The Good:
    1. Full size bassinet is much better than 3/4 sizes.
    2. Vibratration unit, my son loves this.
    3. Soothing music & nature sounds with volume control.
    4. All electronics can be set on a timer or NOT on the timer.
    5. The canopy. I know some didn't use it, but we have a very sunny bedroom and "next to the bed" is a prime sun spot so it's been wonderful for us.
    6. Those bears! At first I thought they were more for the parents, but those three bears have become my 6 week old sons best friends. He smiles more at them than me (I think it's the contrast)
    7. Great diaper /storage station.Easily holds 20 size 1 diapers, alcohol, diaper cream, lotion, Q-tips, wipes, breastfeeding supplies (lanolin, breast pads, etc.) and could hold more.LOVE this feature.

    The bad:
    1. The changing table is a pain in the butt. It's been underneath the bassinet since day one. I don't have time to fuss with putting it on, taking it off for every diaper change. Maybe when it gets moved into the living room.
    2. The nightlight is a JOKE. It's weaker than one small christmas bulb and ours doesn't work half the time.
    3. Cheap quilted matress. My son was only two weeks old and we had been laying him in the same spot and it had a GOOD indentation in the matress. Thankfully, we had gotten an extra one for our baby shower and now I just make sure to change where he lays down often so it's equally smashed down.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    This product is a 5 star; it is excellent.I personally prefer a lighter color, I believe that a play area would be most enjoyed with a lighter color environment.As far as the product itself is most excellent as all of your products.

    Thank you and keep up the great job!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Handy!
    We used our pack n play as a changing table downstairs for the first six months.Our baby slept in it under the canopy for naps during the first month, which was handy.The changing table feature was very accessible for storing diapers, supplies, and being at a good level for changing the baby in the bassinett.We knew it was not supposed to be great for travel and that was true.It was incredibly heavy, not easily accessible to open or close, and the bag had no handle.We will definitely use it for the next baby, but it is packed away in the basement until then! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars SO FUN
    I love this product.My daughter loves watching the star, and I appreciate that everything is detachable.I will remove the little birds from the play gym and attach them to the handle of her carseat.Keeps her entertained while in the car.It is also fun to remove the star and help her learn to track sound.You can then move the star farther back and help her learn to focus her vision.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Daughter LOVED it!
    My daughter loved this playmat from the time she was 2 months old.She is now 5 months and continues to love it.I could not have lived without it.She loves the lights and music at the top.It also detaches and we can put it around the crib, carseat, stroller...you name it.The mat is easy to clean when it is spit-up on.I do not think it is itchy like the other reviews.However, when my daughter was smaller I did put a recieving blanket on it.It is also wide so her cousin can lay there with her.It was definetly worth the money as we use it EVERDAY!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Our Daughter Loves It!
    Our daughter Reagan,has the most fun on this activity gym. She is 71/2 weeks old and just smiles and coos at the star when it's flashing the lights and playing the music. We have the star playing all the time. No matter how much she kicks and wiggles, she can't make the sides move enough to set the "motion" setting off. We tried the little green pillow to keep her lifted up and it didn't work so we use our boppy and it works great. She's stays entertained for at least a 1/2 hour. I know that doesn't seem long, but for her it's a very long time. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Take the power and flexibility of a dedicated computer gaming system and combine it with the easy-to-use, instant-on format of a high-end console system and what do you get? Well, if you also add in DVD playback ability and broadband Internet connectivity, you get Xbox.

    The advanced components inside Xbox make it the undisputed powerhouse among current game consoles. A 733 MHz Intel main processor and 233 MHz graphics processor from industry leader nVidia deliver photorealistic graphics in real time. A cavernous hard drive stores saved games and characters, making flimsy memory sticks obsolete. The built-in Ethernet port enables super-fast multiplayer online gaming over a broadband Internet connection. Four game controller ports allow you and three of your buddies to play at the same time, or you can use them for other peripherals such as gamepads, light guns, and who knows what else?

    But Xbox has more going for it than fancy innards. The Xbox's Windows-based operating system is a breeze to program on, earning it grateful accolades from Electronic Arts, Infogrames, THQ, and other game producers. The less time developers spend struggling with the operating system means the more time they spend tweaking gameplay, which ultimately results in better games. And games are what it's all about.

    Well, games and the fun of owning a green-glowing game console that looks like it came from Darth Vader's living room.--Mike Fehlauer

    The Xbox Video Game System with Controller S includes the Xbox console, the popular "S" style Microsoft controller, and all necessary cables. A DVD kit (sold separately) is required to access DVD playback ability.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Oh, I love my Xbox.
    My title simply states it. I love XBOX. I mean its the same price as a PS2 except with 4 controller ports AMAZING graphics (i have doom 3) 8 gb hard drive, and able to upload CDS for games. WOW. Do what I did. I traded in my PS2 for xbox almost a year ago and I'm glad I did. So, go the way of an XBOX!

    5-0 out of 5 stars XBOX Rocks!But if you really want a good system....
    Dont get me wrong the XBOX is THE best system available.But if you are seriously wanting one, wait untill November of this year when the XBOX 360 will hit shelves.Its going to be the new XBOX and the new BEST gaming system EVER!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Xbox does not suck
    Im an Xbox owner And Gamecube owner but seen the PS2 in action. Ive read some lies about the Xbox that arent true first of all The Xbox is being recalled because Xbox overheated and catches on fire is some what true yet false the Xbox overheats and the cords catch on fire thats because the models before Oct 2003 had a little defect But the models are now safe. The controllers were huge at the time but over the years the Xbox controllers shrank now there are diferent varietys of Xbox controllers. Now the Gamecube I like the GCN for great titles like The Mario series,the Sonic series,Super Smash Bros Melee and Resident evil 4 I agree the GCN has Improved over the years. Sorry Nintendo Lovers But Nintendo..is..DYING and I repeat DYING Nintendo is not coming out with good new titles just plain sequels. It hasnt made a good game since metriod prime. Although maybe a miracle will happen When Legend of Zelda comes out later in 2005. Nintendo just lost the company Rare to Microsoft Because Microsoft has more money and better games than Nintendo. I Know Your thinking Halo or Halo 2 well yeah thats what made MIcrosoft today Before i played Halo I Hated that game I thought it was stupid till i played it. I had my GAYcube for 3 years and it doesnt work at all even on a brand new Game. I like this system but its not all that great.

    Now the Kid who wrote Xbox sucks Is wrong the Xbox is a great system And the Controllers dont come in one color it comes in three like See through blue and green and regular black And PS2 and GCN have black controllers but theyre not ugly unlike xbox THEYRE THE SAME FLIPPEN COLOR YOU COLOR BLIND IDIOTS. The graphics are better than the other systems the xbox graphic processer has 233 MHz and The PS2 has 150 MHz and the GCN has 162 MHz (wow the GCN has beter graphics than the PS2).The memory is internal which makes it so you dont have to buy a memory card when you first have the system ( unlike the GCN an PS2) you can buy a memory card if you want But it cost $24. You can play online and talk to who ever is online. Microsoft is a very succesful company and if your still not sure dont listen to the Losers who pretend to have and Who buy theyre Xbox from hobos cuz theyre lookin to get shot by people who have or made xbox. Talk to Xbox owners or talk to video game sellers From gamestop,game crazy, and ebgames or G4 tech tv ( for people who dont know when you see agood system when you see one its a tv show check your local listings) ...

Thanks

    this is perfect because the care seat is quick and easy to put in the car and stroller, and take it out. on the stroller, the hood you pull over is perfect for outside walks with my 6 week old son, it keeps him out of the sun, and theres a little window i can watch him through. its very light weight and fits into my trunk perfectly.i have nothing bad to say about this product at all. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is great!!
    My child lives in this thing!!She is 3 months old and LOVES to be held! I put her in the bjorn and carry her around the house.She falls asleep in it within a matter of minutes and I get all of the cleaning done.I have cooked dinner, cleaned bathrooms, and even done my make-up with her in it!We recently went to disney world on vacation and my whole famiy was able to use the bjorn (they are all shapes and sizes)I love this thing and strongly recommend it!!The only downfall is attempting to take her out of it while she is sleeping.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not for BIG babies...
    After reading all the positive comments, my wife and I decided to purchase the carrier. We purchased another one from Target that was really, really nice from designer Philippe Stark. As beautiful as it was, the material made my son sweat and was uncomfortable (we live in Miami), which is why we purchased this particular carrier.

    This carrier got less use than the previous one. Although the material was better, it was too small. My son is big but not huge. He is a little above average in size. He isn't overweight but his little legs are too thick to comfortably fit in the carrier, especially when wearing jeans or layered clothing.

    I'm sure the carrier is a good one. But in our case, it only deserved one star. We couldn't use it although we would have liked to. It's better designed for smaller babies. Don't get it if your baby has chunky little legs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great carrier! My daughter LOVES it!
    I bought this carrier at first because I wanted and needed the extra lumbar support. This carrier provides amazing support and I can wear it for hours and not have any back pain.

    Another plus was that I'm a big woman and the straps fit perfectly around and over my shoulders. If I would have purchased the regular baby bjorn then I would have had to purchase the "extender straps" and it would have been just as expensive!

    My daughter loves looking out and we started using it when she first came home from the hospital.

    A must have for parents on the go! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great all around pack n play for many reasons below!
    This is one of our best purchases and for only $100 it's GREAT!

    1. Easy to set up and take down
    2. Folds really tight for travel...great for travel!
    3. Bassinett feature is great for naps, or for baby staying in the room with you during the 1st few months.
    4. Sound and light attachment are great...has lullabies or nature music
    5. Mobile is cute, but just a decoration it doesn't spin on it's own, your baby may like to stare at it, or may not
    6. Attachment for diapers, wipes, etc, comes in handy BIG time!

    I adore this thing and have gotten much use out of it, and will get much more use out of it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT... STURDY; GREAT COLORS!
    After reading the reviews and testing several models out at Babies R Us, my husband and I settled on the Mocha Pack N Play. We are getting ready to move to our new house in less than a month, and have a scheduled c-section in two weeks, so we didn't bother setting up a crib or changing table yet. The Pack N Play seemed like the best solution. My husband put it together last night and we were both very impressed with how sturdy it is and how easily it folds and stores! The wheels are great too... I plan on using it throughout the house and in my garden, so it was well worth the dough!! The directions were bad, but it was so easy to put together that you really don't even need them.

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Gifts we Received!
    We use our pack and play downstairs, and our nusery is upstairs.This way, the baby can be changed downstairs and be able to nap there too.It comes in handy during our "movie and Tv" Time.I would highly recommend this product to any family with a large house or busy lifestyle. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Great chair!
    Wow, this chair must be popular with twins! I too have twins, 21 month old twin boys. WE have had this chair since they were about 9 months.

    Before we had this chair we had the harmony chair in colby. It was very cute, but not at all funtional and it actually broke when my niece (2 year old, average weight/heirght) sat in it!!! So I imediatly went out to BRU to get a new one.

    I bought this chair because it was EXTREMELY sturdy. I also liked the 5pt. harness to keep my master of disasters in place. The seat cover was very soft, and my boys seemed comfortable in the store. My sons were very excited about the color, that means very excited for meal time! The tray and the heights adjusted, and it wasnt too expensive.

    Once I got this chair home I really found out how great it was! My small boys could fit in it snugly, (though they are small at 32nd percentile)yet they can fit in it now at about one year later! The tray is very easy to one-handedly take off and put back on, and its not too heavy or cumbersome. The dishwasher insert is incredible, and we love it soo much, and use it all the time. The seat cover is machine washable, and also very easy to wipe down because its vinyl. The tray adjusting, and the height adjusts make it extrememly easy to bring up to the table, since now my toddlers are obbsesed with doing everything as a "big boy". The wheels are really easy to lock, or unlock and I can push it around very very easily, which is much more important than I thought. Its also not too heavy if I have to lift it.

    What I dont like is the color, its just too bright and I really liked the old colby color, but this is a very minor issue. The chair is also HUGE, I mean its even enourmous when folding, but we do have a large kitchen. Like some of the previous reviewers I really dont like that huge toy, its just not apropriate for meal time, though our boys love to play with it on the floor, and we have never introduced them to it at meal time so they never whine for it, yet again unlike a previous reviewer. I too ordered more trays, and fisher-price was very very nice and I had no problems, I believe that maybe the reviewer who had a bad experience was just worked up and made it worse with her adttitude (although I am NOT discrediting her account nor do I have any spite towards her, its just I believe she was very upset as it is and may have taken the advice in a bad way). THe tethered toys are also not really neccesary, but ohh well.

    Other than those few, very minor and optional, cons this chair is great. I love it and am really resenting the day my boys grow out of it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome highchair!
    This chair is great!I got 2 for my twin girls and couldn't be happier.There are several height settings so I can sit on a stool, a dining room chair or on the floor and still be comfortable.The tray is easy to attach and remove.The removable tray fits nicely into the dishwasher and makes clean up a breeze.The adjustable reclining back makes it comfortable for my little ones to sit back a bit but will be nice for them to sit up straight as they get older.The color is a bit bright but we can live with that in order to have the convenience, safety and reliability.Also, the base is a bit bulky but it folds up so you can set in a corner or against a wall.
    I originally had the Graco Harmony and went to put it together to find broken parts.Then I read the online reviews to find many, many negatives about it.
    I'd definitely recommend this to anyone (and have already to many family and friends)!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Aquarium Chair is a Great Buy
    We did a lot of research into high chairs for our twins, just turned 6 months old.I at first thought I would go the economic route and buy used high chairs off of Craigslist (classified) here in our area, but I really wanted the Aquarium chairs.My husband and I went to Babies R Us to look at all our options.Basically, when we really looked into the Aquarium chairs, they were a hands-down win.We decided to splurge and get them.
    They are great!The babies love them, the different reclining positions make it easy to feed them solids or their bottle comfortably, and the toy insert is really wonderful.The music is fun and the babies laugh every time it plays.Also, the teether toys are fun for them, especially the rattler.We didn't want to have different high chairs with one having different toys, to avoid jealousy later on, so this works out perfectly.Also, the trays are easy - snap on, snap off and right in the dishwasher.
    A few cons - this high chair only comes with one tray, so you have to wash it off more often than some of the others (others come with three or even five trays).We fixed that by calling Fisher Price and ordering additional trays - cheap.And, the product info says the tethered toys are dishwasher safe, but right on the toys, it states 'NOT DISHWASHER SAFE.'So watch that.
    Overall, a great chair - easy to use, cute, fun for the kids, easy to clean! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    To help you start your PSP collection, we've created this special bundle, which includes the Intec "Dock It" docking station, Sandisk 256 MB Memory Stick, and Wipeout Pure game in addition to the Sony PSP value pack which comes with the AC adapter, battery pack, 32 MB Memory Stick Duo, earbud headphones with remote control, soft case, hand strap, and of course the PSP system.

    The era of no-compromises handheld gaming has arrived. Get ready for immersive, 3D gaming on a console that is poised to change the way we think about portable devices. With wireless internet, video and digital music playback, and incredible data storage and connectivity options, the Sony PSP--or PlayStation Portable--is a complete solution for the mobile digital lifestyle. Sony has hit the mark by combining both horsepower and groundbreaking features into a package that weighs just a hair more than half a pound.

    Design
    The PSP's exceptional performance comes from a 333 MHz processor that dwarfs the speed of competing handheld consoles. Add this polygon-pushing muscle to 4 MB of fast DRAM and 32 MB of embedded RAM, and you've got a device with graphics rendering capabilities close to that of the PlayStation2. And because no game is complete without audio, the PSP is generously appointed with built-in stereo speakers, as well Dolby Digital 7.1 surround soundcapability. Sony has also pulled out all the stops with the PSP display. The bright, 4.3-inch LCD sports a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel resolution--plenty of real estate for heavy gaming action and widescreen-format movies. All of this is powered by a removable, and rechargeable, lithium-ion battery.



    Screen machine: The 4.3-inch display sports a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel resolution. Movies and games on the go have never been more gorgeous.

    From a controls perspective, the PSP is made for gaming. If you're familiar with a PlayStation controller, you'll be a pro at the PSP's controls in no time. Directional buttons, as well as an analog stick are provided. Meanwhile, the familiar left and right shoulder buttons, as well as triangle, circle, cross and square buttons are integrated into the device's slim case. Finally, home, select, and start buttons give you quick access and control over the PSP's important functions.



    To have and to hold: The PSP's easy-to-master controls are cleverly integrated into the device's slim profile.

    Supported Media
    At the heart of the PSP is a new, proprietary media format known as the Universal Media Disc, or UMD. Each UMD can hold 1.8 GB of data, enough room for rich and complex games. UMDs, which are housed in a protective cover, slide into the rear of the PSP. Sony has declared the UMD an open format for developers and media content owners, so movies, music and other media are on the horizon from third parties. Sony has also signed on many popular game developers for the platform, so a deep library of titles is on tap.

    While the UMD is great for read-only media such as games and movies, Sony solves the problem of data storage with the addition of a Memory Stick Duo slot. With Memory Stick Duo media, you can store your saved games, downloaded online content, personal video and audio files, and more. When you want access to these files from your PC, simply use the PSP's USB 2.0 port to turn the device into a fastportable media drive. Then, drag and drop files such as your photos, MP3s, and videos onto the PSP, just as you would any other removable storage device. The PSP ships with a 32 MB Memory Stick Duo, and additional media with higher storage capacities are available.



    Major media: Sony's PSP-compatible Universal Media Disc (UMD) can hold 1.8 GB of data.

    Connectivity
    The PSP blows away the competition in the connectivity department. Indeed, the PSP's ability to connect to the internet, and to other PSPs and USB-based peripherals, is a real advantage. At the top of the list is Wifi connectivity, or IEEE 801.11b. Use this wireless internet standard to connect to other gamers around the world for hot multiplayer action--all from your couch, or your local Wifi hotspot. As mentioned, the PSP's USB 2.0 port is great for PC connectivity, but it also opens the PSP up for a whole range of future peripherals. Sony has plans for the PSP in other ways, too; the unit's infrared port speaks of remote control capabilities in the near future.

    A Digital Companion
    If you haven't already guessed, Sony has positioned the PSP to be much more than a gaming device. Out of the box, the device is ready to serve as a portable video player and photo viewer. By using the new H.264 MPEG-4 video standard, Sony obviously has its eyes on making the PSP a robust video device with support for feature length movies and more.In addition, the PSP offers a great way to transport and share your photos in JPEG format. And let's not forget the music. Load up your favorite MP3-encoded songs onto a Memory Stick Duo and you've got a portable audio powerhouse. The device also supports Sony's ATRACaudio codec, so you can play songs acquired from Sony's Connect Online Music Store. Sony even ships a nifty pair of earbuds--complete with an inline remote control--with the PSP.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Way too much $$$!!!
    The PSP is good I'll give it that, but I think that Sony is cramming too much stuff into thier first handheld. Make it more simple. plus it is WAAAAAAAY too much money, my parents are not gonna spend that much for me, and it's just not worth that much, nor should anyone have to spend that much on a system meant for gaming, with a few extra goodies thrown in. You over obsesive gamers...-_-

    5-0 out of 5 stars way out in front
    I just got my new PSP. Initial impressions - a very serious piece of kit. It's beautifully constructed, but looks like it wouldn't survive a big drop. It certainly has an 'adult' feel to it - not the 'mainly for kids' that the Nintendo DS exudes.

    I loaded Ridge Racer in and was just taken aback by the quality of the graphics, game play and sound. It really is just like having a PS2 that you can stick in your back pocket.

    The quality of the movie trailers on the sample disc are just out of this world, as is the sound. The remote control has a light, really cheap feel to it but works perfectly well.

    Even being out of the box for an hour the screen is attracting dust underneath so a screen protector is definitely called for, as is a memory card-coz 32MB is no use at all!

    I was expecting a lot from the PSP having read many reviews, but it's actually exceeded my expectations. The large screen is just amazing - far ahead of anything else in it's class. I'm on the lookout for dead pixels - but so far the PSP is way ahead of it's competition.

    3-0 out of 5 stars pros and cons
    PSP is more suitable for extreme gamers. It's sleek, mature look are more suitable for teenagers or adults. For kids, I recommend GBA SP or GBA DS. The selection of games are more in tune with popular titles like POKEMON. PSP is more for teens as it has more action and maybe violence in it. The selection of games are more like racing, sports...things that usually does not appeal to children.

    Next, I want to enphasise on the use of memory sticks in PSP. Everything must be stored in memory sticks so it is a bit inconvenient. What more, the memory sticks cost quite a sum so be prepared to spend lots of money on them.

    But, the graphics on PSP are way better than those found on GBA. It is capable of displaying about 15 million colurs wherelse GBA DS can only display 260,000 colours only.

    So as to conclude the end of this review, PSP's graphics and features are good. But think about the amount of money to spend on memory cards...think twice. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Convenient for Travel
    I got the swing as a gift. My baby didn't not care for it in the beginning. After a few tries, he now enjoys it. He loves the lights on the bar, the volume for the music is loud enough to be heard, and offers a variety of speed settings. It's convenient to take with you to visit family.
    The problem is that now at 14 lbs. The swing barely rocks at top speed.
    I was concerned with one incident. The toys are located on the sides. I once saw my baby lock his fingers around one of the toys and slightly lift himself up. My baby is only 3 months now. For my peace of mind, the toys have been removed.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great little swing
    I bought this swing to use at my parent's house.It has worked out great.At home I have an older model Graco 3-speed open top swing which I really enjoy using at home.The travel swing is great to be able to move from room to room.I have taken it outside quite a bit also.My only complaint about this swing is that the toys that hang down on either side are too close for small babies.For now, at two months, the toys really startle my son so I have to tie them out of the way so he doesn't accidentally hit them and upset himself.He may really love them once he gets older, but it would be better if I could take them off for now.They are permanently attached so the are tied up with string for the moment.Other than that this swing is great.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
    I think this swing really came in handy for the times when I wanted my hands free.My son falls asleep everytime me or my husband put him on it. He usually stays in his swing without being fussy for an hour or more.If it wasn't safe, I wouldn't have thought of putting my son on it.It's safe, with supervision of course.I'd recommend this swing to parents that want a small, travel-pack, and affordable swing. ...

    Editorial Review

    Baby spent nine months floating around in her/his own "aquarium," listening to the deep-sea sounds of Mommy’s tummy--so why wouldn’t she love to tune in to the gurgles and splashes of this Aquarium Bouncer? The lightweight bouncy seat features an ocean-themed fabric seat with harness restraint (machine washable), calming vibrations, a baby- (or parent-) activated toy bar, and a pretend tank filled with swimming fish, bubbles, colored lights, and music. Infants can bat at fish and seahorse to activate music, lights, and sounds (and stimulate sensory development, by the way). Four selections of music and sounds (with volume control) allow ocean waves, a babbling brook, summer rain, or lullabies to wash over Baby. The removable toy bar features brightly colored toys with spinners, teethers, and textures to stimulate baby’s sight and touch. Baby’s going to be a veritable genius before s/he is through with this seat! Discontinue use when baby reaches 25 pounds or can sit upright unassisted. Four D batteries required (not included). Phillips head screwdriver needed for assembly (also not included). --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My 2-month old is enchanted
    I am so glad I registered for this bouncy seat! The moving water and varied sounds and light keep her attention longer than I expected. I've gotten some great pictures of her gazing wide-eyed at the water! The toy bar is easy to remove for her to just sit and be with me in the kitchen or living room. I highly recommend this bouncer!

    5-0 out of 5 stars very fun
    My daughter absolutely loves the Ocean Wonders Aquarium that we put in her crib so this is a nice addition.If I am trying to get work done around the house, and she is a little fussy because she'd like to be held, I can put her in this, turn on the music, and the fish just entertain her and soothe her.She loves to stare at them and smile.It's a calming product, and the best part is that the music and sounds don't get as irritating as other products I've seen and used.

    5-0 out of 5 stars First time mom
    I got this bouncer as a gift at my baby shower. At first, my daughter was scared of it cuz it vibrates and makes music/bubbles, but after a while, she cant get enough of it. She is almost 2 months old and she yells every time i dont put her in it. Once she is in it, she is yelling with happiness, smiling, kicking the toys and watching the bubbles. She even falls asleep in it with all the excitment. I also use the vibration to help her with the gas inside her, and let me tell you...it works. I reccomend this bouncer to all new mothers, and mothers who have very gassy babies, like i do. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Easy2Use
    We purchased this travel system for various reasons: price, style, safety, and user friendly. The price for purchasing a carrier and stroller seperate were a little more than buying the travel system.
    A good feature which you probably don't even think about is the strap to tighten your little one in there. A few companies are tightened from the back of the carrier which can be difficult. With Graco, you just pull the strap from the front and you're done. A friend of mine has a baby a month younger than mine and was jealous when she saw how much easier my carrier was to operate.
    The stroller has compartments for your cell and drinks and space underneath for shopping items. It can easily be opened and closed with one hand. The only drawback for me is that I feel it takes up too much trunk space. If you have a smaller car be sure you have enough room.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's a Great Travel System!
    I bougth this travel system when I was 6 months pregnant.Now my baby born 2 months ago and he loves it.And I love it too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT
    My daughter is now 3 months old, and I have a 3 year old daughter and a 6 year old son. I always looked high and low for the best travel system for our kids. and now I think I found the best one for our new daughter.

    The metro light was nice, but not nearly as sturdy and reliable as we wanted it to be, and plus it folded so terribly...

    The fancy Peg Pregos didnt seem all that extravigant for the heafty price, although they did seem nice.

    So we cam to the Quattro Tour. I absolutly fell in love! What innitally drew me to this stroller was the Mocha print, and the looks! It just LOOKS so sturdy and safe, but of course thats not the reason I bought it...

    THE STROLLER
    The stroller itself is very, very nicely made. It manuvers so well and its designed so perfectly that it feels light to push and I can litterally turn it on a dime! The wheels are big and strong, this is by far much better than the whimpy ones that comanies try to sell on other TRAVEL SYSTEMS! The shocks absorb every bump and crack, and all the "rough" terrain, it never wakes my sleepy infant from her slumber. The canopy can form a little cacoon around her when shes in the infant carrier, and alone it easily can cover my 3 year olds head. The handle bars are at the perfect hight for both me and my husband, and they are very easy and comfortable to hold. They even have a little compartment (we keep keys, wallets, cell phones, sunglasses ECT inside) and it also has TWO cup holders, sometimes its for the "driver", sometimes for the toddler, sometimes for extra little trinkets or even a snack. The babies tray also has room for a cup and snacks when the time comes for her to be in the stroller regularly. The fabric is nice and soft and great for my 3 year old (I have tested out all the future features with her!) The 5pt. harness is very sturdy and really hooked into the stroller, it will keep my tiny (12th percentile tiny!) girl in her stroller. The basket is very large and can hold a diaper bag, my purse, SHOPPING, jackets for the kids, and of course my 3 year olds dolly and purse! The basket is also easily accesable when the seat is fully reqlined, all you have to do is sort of let it "drop". The stroller is very easy to fold (and it actually folds one-handed) and it folds so the only parts touching the ground of those filthy parking lots are the wheels, which is exactly how it should be. The stroller is a bit on the large side, but thats no problem for us considering we have a large SUV and a pick-up truck.

    THE CARSEAT
    The carseat is probably the best one I have ever laid eyes on. This seat is soo comfortable, and my baby girl is always sleeping the minute we put her inside! The material is super soft and its very easy to keep her in for long periods of time. The harness is very nicely fit, yet its not annoying for my baby, but it will always keep her safe and secure. The canopy is great for hiding her face from the sun or to cover her while we are out and about. The handle makes it super easy to carry her around when we dont have the stroller, and the seat is pretty lightweight. The design makes it easy to place in the shopping cart bases for little seats, and its also easy to place this nicely in a restaurant highchair. The material is very "breathable" and she never appears to be sweaty or uncomfortably warm. The carseat has exceptional saftey ratings, and I always feel that my baby will be safe in the event of an accident. It snaps in easily to the base in the car (we too have one for both my and my husbands cars) and there is never too much fuss to wake her up. Same goes for placing it into the stroller, its always safe and sturdy and never seems wobbly. The seat reqlines very nicely, and there are just too many great things to say about it.

    All in all this travel system is superb, and if you took the time to read my whole review you will see exactly why this is the travel system for your new bundle of joy (it also comes in various prints!) ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    There are at least 8 stimulating toys within hands’ reach with this latest Baby Einstein creation, together offering enough interest and diversity to teach new colors, textures, shapes, musical scores, realistic animal depictions and sounds, and a bevy of bilingual words. The marquee feature: with each word or sound ("chien", "gato", or "cat", for example), there is a photographed, rather than illustrated, animal which is realistically associated with it. Simple words cited in several languages encourage talk-back, repetition, and retention. A hand-puppet offers interactive play with big people and a textured array of shapes, sizes, and colors aid sensory development and hand-eye coordination. Ergonomically designed, the seat makes activities strain-free (for children up to 30 pounds or about 32 inches). Learning and playing is therefore more independent, but that’s not to say parents shouldn’t join in the fun. Requires adult assembly and 3, AA batteries. --Diane Beall ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better Than all Others!
    I own two exersaucers for my twin sons, this one and the safari saucer. My sons seem to like this saucer more, and they also love all the other baby Einstein products!

    TOYS->
    * Soft Green lizard puppet
    * Orange star on a twisty stick
    * Little sphere with a duck, cat, lion, cow and dog on it (makes music)
    * An arch with little rings on it
    * Soft shapes stacked ontop of eachother (makes music)
    * "story book" (makes music)
    * Sun on a twisted stick
    * Mini globe with beads inside
    * Spinny bar (makes music)

    This saucer is just so well made. The colors are fabulous, dark rich reds, blues and engaging colors on toys, and also the white tray has a glittery gloss to it. All the toys are VERY safe, my sons are 5 months old and have never been injured by any of them. The height adjustments hold my scrawny twins and my best friends 9 month old BIG girl... Its super sturdy and it isnt a huge eyesore. You can have it stable, or push in the red pegs and it will rock!

    My sons adore the sun, I dont know what it is but its just so cute. They can spin in it with their arms, sort of, but they do need assistance (no fault to the spinning mechansim, just my boys are scrawny!) The seat is made very nicely and very comfortable for my little guys, though they do need a blanket or two! This saucer doesnt have as much "snack" room on the tray as the safari, but it could hold cheerios or what not.

    I love this sauver, and I could not want anything else, great for any little baby!

    5-0 out of 5 stars My babies most favorite toy!
    I have a 5 month old daughter and we have had this play center for about a month. SHE LOVES IT!!! It didn't take her long to spin herself around so she can look and play with everything. She especially loves the red, blue and yellow spinners (first things she discovered) and now she's really into the button that makes the cow sounds and laughs at daddy and I while we dance to the song. Everything is brightly colored and she can sit in it for hours. She also loves to "talk" to the dragon puppet. It's her favorite toy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased!
    We have loved all of the different feature as our daughter has grown.At nine months, she seems to have exhausted all of the activities provided, but it is a great place to put her when I jump into the shower because I know she is happy and safe! ... Read more

    This toy will make you want to take a nap. Equipped with straps that attach it to a crib, this play aquarium and music maker is the perfect thing to amuse a child or soothe them to sleep. There are three settings, depending on what kind of stimulation is needed: music only; music plus soft glowing lights; and music plus lights, bubbles, and moving fish. There are also three music options, the best one offering soft and melodic New Age fare, the other two somewhat odd, spacey versions of familiar lullabies. The music combined with the lights creates an instantly peaceful, soothing ambiance. There are a couple of buttons and doodads for baby to bat around that make the fish react in various ways. If these buttons were a little more responsive, this toy would be near perfect. --David Stoesz ... Read more

    This product is great. My baby is only six weeks old and has been mezmerized by it for two weeks. A must have for new moms.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't live without it
    Bought this for my son and it is awesome. He is now 21 months and still enjoys playing with it and listening to all the different music it can make. When he was under a year, we would play the "ocean waves" sound to get him to sleep. It worked perfect because it simulates the womb. Now, that he is older, he chooses his own bed time song and knows how to turn it on and off.

    The only drawback is that it does not have a remote control. It would have been nice when he was younger and it took longer than 15 miuntes to fall asleep, to be able to push a button from outside of the room to start the music over again. (maybe on the next version)

    It does not go through as many batteries as I was expecting. The batteries seem to last a few months.

    Overall - I would totally recommend this product and I am going to buy another one for our next son later this year. ... Read more
