If you’re looking for a handcrafted wooden alternative, check out the sweet version from Estia, found at parent-owned toy shop Kangarooboo. While it may not be the bright rainbow toy of your youth, this phone still has the ever important turning dial – that will make kids of today ask what the heck it is anyway.

In addition to the squirrel, penguin and horse, Estia also makes a butterfly and rabbit. Each toy costs around $10 and is available here (kangarooboo.com).
More modern mobiles by Flensted arrived a few days ago. Here are a few of my personal favorites:
Expecting Mother: A fun and funny mobile. Silhouette of an expecting mother and her toddlers. Nice gift for mothers.
I like this the Juggler’s Appretince because the balls are colorful and well, just because clowns makes me happy.
The Splash Mobile is something I’d really love to hang in baby’s nursery. Definitely love the colors and how it looks like splashes on the wall!
It’s always tough to pick out just a few favorites from so many Flensted Mobiles. We love all of their mobiles.
We are really big fans of Flensted Mobiles. We have a couple of their mobiles hanging in our house. We’ve added 15 new mobiles from Flensted. Here are 3 of our favorites:
|Hedgehog Family||Post Card Mobile||Seahorse Blue|
Here’s a little lesser known fact about Flensted Mobiles:
“Flensted Mobiles are produced in a very low carbon manner: Let me explain, instead of 75 workers every day drive into the factory and assemble mobiles, they work from their homes. Every 14 day we drive on 1 trip visiting all workers exchange unassembled parts for mobiles packaged and ready to ship. We save 75 x 10 days of driving every 2 weeks or approximately 200 days a year for each employee. Let’s say each live 5 miles from work they get 20 miles to the gallon it will then come out to saving 7500 gallons of gas a year. We have been doing this for over 30 years.”
