I dream of Orca

The Modern Baby Co. whale mobileCute little fishies for your baby’s room? So done. Instead, try this very hip, non-cutesy, and eco-conscious mobile that looks as sweet and restful hanging over a crib as it does dangling over a jacuzzi tub. Trust me, I know, because I stole it and hung it over mine. (My boy’s room is Godzilla and cars, so it’s not that I’m selfish; I’m practical.)

The little whale mobile by The Modern Baby Co.
is laser-cut from birch and comes to you with minimal packaging and

the clear wire through three whales and figure out how to tie it up
yourself, which isn’t bad at all.

I love the natural, minimalistic approach in two-tone wood, and I really
love the way they float and twirl with the slightest breeze. If I were
pregnant now, I’d start planning a whale-themed nursery and dreaming of

    Alison, that is true! And actually Delilah had a line about that in the post but I took it out. It has to do with weirdos who google things about sperm.

    Long story.

    Yes! My original title was “Baby’s Got (Hump)Back”. And then I mentioned they were actually Sperm whales. So I had both humping and sperm in the post. And THAT is why we have awesome EDITORS. =) Thanks, Liz!
