Lucky Storks Mobile

Regular price €16.45

Following Montessori theory, our mobiles represent reality. They have birds or whales that would move through the air or the water as their counterparts on the mobile. This is a visual mobile, not meant to be touched by the child, but to delicately float on the currents in the air.

These mobiles are handcrafted by a skillful and much appreciated staff of homeworkers scattered around the beautiful island of Funen in Denmark. It takes time, patience, dedication and care to make a mobile. Each mobile is carefully assembled, and balanced by skilful hands. They are packed so that they are ready to hang.

In 1953 Christian Flensted cut three storks in cardboard and mounted them in two sticks of straw. The mobile was a a christening gift for his daughter. It is said to have magical powers, so if you want to have a child hang it over your bed.”

An ideal greeting to send to the expecting mother – or a “welcome” to hang above the cot of the new infant.
