BABBLE BEST PICKS: VIDEO MONITORSSee our Babble Best Picks for the Best Audio Monitors »
The Levana BabyView20 is a 2.4 GHz digital monitor that offers excellent interference-free video and audio quality as well as some extras many parents will appreciate, including a built-in nightlight and the ability to turn three soothing lullabies on and off from the 2.36″ color LCD handset. The lullabies aren’t musical masterpieces, but they aren’t overly digital-sounding either (sample them here). In addition, the Levana comes with a crib mount (used only with young babies) and a unique magnetic cradle that allows you to fine-tune the camera’s position as it remains secure in the base. Other features include a voice-activated Mode, energy-saving stand-by Mode and a subdued gender-neutral color scheme.
