I have not purchased this, but have been hands on at one of my friends place. It is a cute, portable blue and white penguin. They have said this is an upgrade or follow up to the Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders: Take Along Projector that has already been posted. The upgrade seems to be the interchangeable screen images that are available.
The Fisher-Price Discover ‘n Grow Select-a-Show Soother has a cartridge holder for the image screens in the back, so it becomes more difficult to loose them. There are a total of 3 “scenic light shows”. Each is based on the age of the baby. The image screens will begin to encourage focusing and recognition, engaging and encouraging eye tracking skills and helping to keep an older baby’s attention.
As for the sounds, it has the standard lullaby’s and music and the nature sounds. Both the music and nature sounds have about 20 minutes of play.
What I like about this projector soother is the option to not only choose between classical music and lullabies or nature sounds, but adjust the mode to have music only, projector only or both. I like this option, so you can play your own music with your own device to play other lullaby’s or white noise.
The projector can be purchased on Amazon.com for a price of $19.22

I wanted to write about this product first as this is the first projector we bought for our baby and have used it quite a bit.
It is a cute product with 3 buttons/knobs on the front. The on/off knob is simply the volume controller. It has 2 volume selections; low and high (however, it seems to be loud and louder!) One button has the lullaby sounds and the other button has ocean sounds. It also has 2 images you can switch between. One is an ocean image with a whale and some fish and the other is an image of the sky with a white background with stars. it also automatically turns off after 12 minutes, which I think is very handy.
All in all, I think it is a cute, simple and easy projector to use to comfort your little one without breaking the bank.
On Amazon.com, it can be purchased for about $16.00
