Love this little mobile! It's so whimsical! Item arrived quickly and looks even better in person than in the photos. Has a very high quality look and feel. Can't wait to hang this in the nursery!

It all began with a name...
when I was pregnant with my first child, whom we had nicknamed "baby Jives", I went through some serious nesting. With a penchant for modern design and a background in fine arts I knew I wanted the nursery to be one of a kind. I partnered with my husband to design and paint a whimsical mural inspired by nature. Then in my final month of nesting I focused on creating an element of art that could move and entrance our new baby; in other words – a mobile.
Baby Jives Co now…
is focused on the creation of modern heirlooms inspired by the world around us. I believe the things we surround our children with should be as wonderful and imaginative as they are. With that in mind, I am trying to make a bit of magic that will last long after the crib is gone. Each mobile is designed by me and then tested by my little ones for its ability to enchant.
Baby Jives Co mobiles are handcrafted one at a time with natural materials such as cotton fabric, stainless steel, and wood so they will endure the years with proper care. The mobiles are works of art meant to grow up with a child and hang in their room long after the last diaper is changed.
Now I hope to inspire wonder in your home as well...
Owner, Designer, Maker
Hi there, I am the hardworking mama behind Baby Jives Co. I can be found most often at my sewing table whipping up magic to delight little ones and their folks. I'm a dreamer, but I know I'm not the only one.
Late Night Assistant, Branch Wrapper
Joe is my husband who often pitches in to wrap branches late at night, sometimes answers emails when I get too swamped, and drops packages at the post for me when I can't get there. He's my go to guy.
Joan is an invaluable member of the team who I've actually known since I was a teen as she's the mom of one of my high school friends. Now she adds her skills to Baby Jives Co working at her own home sewing up some of the components for our mobiles.
Studio Assistant And General Life Saver
Kat is an independant artisan and works with me occasionally to pack orders, cut out patterns, and generally help out doing anything she can. She's my go to gal when I need an extra pair of hands to tackle things.
Local Family Run Sewing Company
Lancaster, PA, United States
To produce some of my most popular items I now work closely with a family business run by a husband and wife who employ family and members of their community to cut and sew in their studio in a converted historic barn in Lancaster County, PA.
These mobiles are decorative items and are not toys for children. If you choose to hang a mobile in a child's room please hang out of reach and use appropriate hardware to secure the mobile. I advise against hanging this over a child's bed because of the possible risk of injury. Hardware is not provided for installation.
