The Fisher Price Rainforest Waterfall Soother has been given two different options to help sooth a baby. Pressing down on the toucan on the front activates all of the soothing features of this product. The first set of features that is controlled by a switch located on the top of the soother is the lights and motions. There are three available options in the lights and motion features that last up to 18 minutes.
In addition to the lights and motion features, the Fisher Price Rainforest Waterfall Soother has been given the ability to play various songs and sounds. There is a volume switch located on the top of the soother that includes an off and three volume settings. There are also three options available in the songs and sounds settings and they last for 18 minutes unless turned off sooner.
The Fisher Price Rainforest Waterfall Soother is approximately 10 inches in diameter and has been given a border that has been given the appearance of three petals. The entire piece is made of a hard plastic material that is pretty durable although a fall from a high distance could crack the clear centerpiece plastic. The front of the border is white and the backing is in a green similar to grass. The battery compartment and crib attachment pieces are located on the back. The front of the soothers features a middle section about 8inches in diameter in which all of the visual effects are located. Along the border of the center there is a light green leaf in the top left corner and a three-layer leaf pattern in the bottom right hand corner. The layer pattern has been given alternating colors of a light and dark green. These leafs are located on the outside of the clear plastic covering that protects the inner workings. Below the three layer leaf configuration, there is a large single green leaf which has a blue toucan located in the center. The toucan has a yellow wing and orange feet. The beak of the bird has been done in stripes of yellow, orange, red, and blue.
This soother gave us many hours of sleep that we would not have normally had. My daughter would stare up at the lights and would seem to be placed into a trance from the music. The Fisher Price Rainforest Waterfall Soother was especially handy when my daughter began teething. I have to admit that the soother would often put me to sleep, as my daughter's bedroom was close enough to ours that I could the music even without the monitor on. I especially liked that the soother is able to last for 18 minutes as her mobile only lasts for a few minutes and never seemed to be long enough. When the soother came on, we were pretty certain that my daughter would be asleep before the final note. Our personal favorite was to have all of the lights and motion going with the nursery songs playing.
