Flensted Mobiles is a Danish family-owned company. The story started in 1953 when Christian Flensted created a mobile with storks to celebrate his daughter's birth. A mobile above a baby's cot stimulates the newborn's sensory development. The baby will enjoy the colours and the slight movement. These hand-made mobiles are available in plexiglas or paper, depending on the type.
The balloons, swallows and elephants make a great gift for a newborn!
Flensted mobiles price from 24.50 euros.
You can never start teaching them the importance of good taste too early.

Pondering a timeless gift? Our ducklings with or without bell jar will also look nice in your godchild's first studio or apartment twenty years later. Jeroen Lemaitre of Animaux Spéciaux calls these ducklings and all his other works treasures, for anyone with a penchant for beauty and tiny wonders. Naturally a baby has yet to develop this hankering. For the time being, all it wants is a lot of affection and milk but I suppose you can never start too early when it comes to teaching a baby good taste?
Duckling on a shelf, price 80 euros.
