This handmade boat mobile invites you to sail away on a wave of imagination. This mobile was inspired by my son as I wanted to create a toy boat for my little one that could be something he imagine adventures in - sailing away to new lands under the stars like so many of our favorite children's books. The finished boat is one that stirs up memories of childhood and the simple act of making something magical out of a few bits of cloth and some sticks. Now it is ready to hang in your adventurer's room to accompany them as they sail off with a spin traveling in the world of their own creation.

This mobile is made to order and will take approximately 2-3 weeks before it is shipped, you will be notified via email when it ships.

The boat is approximately 7 inches long by 3 1/2 inches wide and is 9 inches tall. The entire mobile measures approximately 17 inches tall. Listing is for the single boat as shown in the 4 photos but they do look nice with company. The mobile comes with instructions for secure hanging and extra mono-filament, hardware not included.

This mobile is made with attention to detail and quality materials as an artwork that will last long past the nursery, to grow up with your little one. Each mobile is handmade in a smoke free environment using cotton fabrics, stainless steel, and reclaimed branches wrapped with yarn. The boats are sewn with contrasting stitching for the detailing and are hung so that they will spin with the slightest breeze and will actually bounce slightly as the stainless steel wire armature which they hang from acts as a spring. The edges on the ribbon with stars and boat have been zigzag stitched but left otherwise raw so some shedding of fabric threads may occur over time.


Baby Jives was named one of Babble.com's Top 10 Etsy Baby Shops for Decor 2011 and has been featured on Ohdeedoh, Petite Planet, Li'l Magoolie, Prudent Baby, Project Nursery and in the Feb/Mar 2011 issue of BUST Magazine.

This is not a toy for children, it is intended for decoration only. The sculpture can be hung at any height. If you are going to hang this in a child's room it should be hung out of arms reach (and then a bit more). As the child learns to stand please adjust the mobile again. We advise against hanging this over a child's bed because of the risk of injury.
