The faces on the tote light up one after the other in time with the music. The easy to operate switch can be activated by parent or baby for three modes of play: one plays soothing music for 10 minutes before switching off on its own, one plays stimulating music for ten minutes before switching off, and the other is activated by baby and plays short clips to encourage a reprise. This item is for use in cribs or alone on a mat and includes giraffe plush cuddle toy inside.
