Baby Mobile Elephants - Flying Elephants - Personalized - Mobiles for a Modern Nursery
--- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- ---
With baby's name floating on a wooden cloud, the flying elephants on this mobile will give whimsical charm to your nursery decor.

This mobile is a modern addition to nursery decor or a whimsical accent to just about any space in the home, office or play area. Displaying soft colors and intriguing designs as it rotates, my mobiles are eye-catching pieces of hanging artwork that will delight babies, children and grownups alike. This wood mobile will be a keepsake that is treasured long after baby is out of the crib!

The flying elephants on this mobile are from my original set of "Buzzing Bog" designs that have been featured on "The Martha Steward Show". They are from a whimsical world in the depths of my imagination inspired by lush, tropical gardens where life lurks in secret when you're not looking too closely. The mobile measures 26" from ceiling to bottom and 12" across at the wood hanger. Each block is approximately 4-6" across.

Please give me the name you would like on the cloud in the "Notes" section of checkout. Twins? I can put different names on each side.


FLYING TREES MOBILES

I personally construct all my wood mobiles in my home studio and woodshop here in Southern California. I cut all pieces out of solid wood (poplar, cedar and pine) - meaning no plywood or composite pieces containing harsh glues or chemicals. Made of durable wood, my mobiles can be easily dusted (as opposed to paper or fabric mobiles) and will continue to look every bit as wonderful as the day they were hung for years to come. I also construct the 12-inch wide wooden hangers myself. I sand and shape each piece of wood individually before adding either my own original drawings or paper/fabric swatches. The mobile pieces are then sealed with a high gloss varnish. Durable plastic line is knotted to metal eyelets that have been screwed into the wood pieces, making all connections extra secure.

Most mobiles weigh between 1-1/2 to 2 pounds, depending on the style. They can easily be hung from the ceiling using a screw hook WITH an anchor - available at most home improvement stores. If you would prefer to hang the mobile from a crib mobile attachment (available for purchase from my shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/125230077/crib-mobile-attachment-clamp-attaches) please let me know either through Etsy conversations or by leaving a message in the “notes” section during checkout and I will string the mobile shorter.

My mobiles are not toys, so please keep hanging mobiles out of reach of infants, toddlers and children. Most mobiles hang 30-36 inches from ceiling to bottom or 18 inches if hanging from a crib mobile attachment clamp. Please feel free to let me know if you would like to adjust this length.

Frequently asked questions about FlyingTreeMobiles

Unless specified otherwise when ordered, mobiles are strung to be hung from the ceiling: About 4 to 5 feet long (from ceiling to bottom of mobile). I will provide a white cup hook to screw into your ceiling and additional plastic line in the event of above average ceiling heights.

The included cup hook has a capacity of 10 pounds and is sufficient, but for a more secure installation I suggest purchasing a ceiling hook with anchor:

If you would prefer to hang this mobile from a crib mobile attachment, please select "Hang from Crib" under "Hanging Length". (IF THIS OPTION IS NOT PROVIDED: This is one of my larger mobiles that is best hung from the ceiling.)

The mobile will be strung to hang no longer than 18-inches. Please note: the crib attachment clamp is not included in the price of the mobile. Use the following link to purchase separately OR (when available) select the hanging length option "Crib WITH Attachment".

Pieces for Flying Tree mobiles are cut from solid wood (mostly poplar and pine, unless otherwise noted) - meaning no plywood or composite pieces containing harsh glues or chemicals. Thickness varies from 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch depending on availability.
Made of durable wood, Flying Tree mobiles can be easily dusted (as opposed to paper or fabric mobiles) and will continue to look every bit as wonderful as the day they were hung for years to come.
Most mobiles weigh between 1-1/2 to 2 pounds, depending on the style.
I personally create each component of Flying Tree mobiles with care in my home studio. I sand and shape each piece of wood individually before adding illustrations (printed onto transfer paper), fabric or paper. Mobile pieces are then sealed with a high gloss varnish. Plastic monofilament is knotted to metal eyelets that have been screwed into each piece, making all connections extra secure.
Flying Tree mobiles tend to move in even the slightest breeze. They do not come with mechanisms for spinning, but even in the act of photographing the mobiles I find it extremely difficult to make them be still! I think you'll enjoy their soft and natural movement as much as I do.
This mobile is MADE TO ORDER. Your order will ship THREE WEEKS after date of purchase. I try to get orders out as soon as I can - some months are busier than others. If you have a specific date you need your order by, please let me know and I will confirm whether or not I can provide expedited production.
