I was never a musical crib mobile kind of parent. And now that there are so many options for piping in lovely music into a child’s room — as in, lovelier music than that tinny awfulness in most crib mobiles — I love the idea of just a simple, pretty crib mobile that you can hang above a crib or changing table to dazzle a baby and lull her to sleep the old fashioned way. I just discovered an Etsy artist called Wonderfeltland who is doing the cutest things with handmade felt baby mobiles.

Check out the selection from mom/designer Ginny Smith and find everything from cute woodland creature, baby circus animals and Disney princesses, to less typical designs including ninjas, spaceships, Dr. Seuss characters, and my favorite, a group of flying dragons.  Although the Harry Potter mobile may actually tie for first.

She can even take custom orders, say you want that astronaut looking more Sally Ride than Alan Shepard, or you just haven’t yet found felt aliens anywhere who match your raspberry and lime nursery color scheme.

I love the quality of her work, and if you look closely, there are some great details to discover including child-safe eyes sewn in. Not that you want a baby stuffing any of these in their mouths; not only will you want to keep yours for a long time, but I hear ninjas have a pretty awful aftertaste.
