Low Speed Motor?

I want to make a baby night toy with multi color LEDs and a rotation device.
For which i need a low speed motor. Can someone help me find such a motor or give any idea on how an ordinary motor can be used for this purpose?

thanks in advance for all the feedback.

maybe a cassette tape motor using the geared set up that is there

Go for a simple approach - Make the lamp incandescent then you can put a coloured cylinder round it with fan blades cut at the top the heat will make it go round. DON'T use candles.

Either look for a low rpm gear motor or a stepper motor. A stepper will require a driver/controller plus power supply. A gear motor will only require a power supply and switch.

slow speed gearbox should solve that problem.
