This is one of the most useful baby items we purchased. My son loved it from the time he was a few weeks old. We use a fan to help circulate the penguins; he shrieks with laughter when he's lying in his crib watching the penguins march. It would have been worth the price of the mobile just to hear him laugh, but in the early days it also kept him occupied for a few precious minutes to do the things any new parent desperately needs to do in the morning. The penguins also calm him down when he's upset. We go into the nursery and I blow on the penguins and hold him so he can see them, and they almost always distract him from whatever the trouble is.
CRIB SET UP:
When he was about a month old, I added a few other must-have items to the crib to keep him entertained. (He still sleeps in the our room and not in the crib). The mobile is hanging above one end of the crib. At the same end, I have the Fisher-Price Discover 'n Grow Kick and Play Piano Gym. On one of the sides I've wedged the Wimmer-Ferguson Double-Feature Mirror. This trio is golden and keep him playing happily while I do longer chores, like make something to eat AND eat it. I've even been able to take a few quick showers.
The mobile itself is very well designed and I love the sleek black and white penguins. Yes it's cardboard, but it's a gorgeous mobile. I don't understand why so many baby mobiles are pastel - babies can't see them so it completely defeats the purpose. I've also been amused to see this particular Flensted mobile make an appearance in How I Met Your Mother. It looks like this company has lots of beautiful designs to choose from, and any of the black and white or bold color mobiles would make a fantastic addition to any nursery.
The reason I give it only four stars is because it's made of cardboard, so it's not a work of art that will last for years.

While this mobile is simple and constructed of string and paper, it's still very unique and whimsical.Published 20 months ago by Nicoya Perez
This is a very high quality mobile. Material is very durable. Definitely appreciated the extra length of string to adjust to different ceiling heights.Published on January 28, 2014 by Shawn C
