About BabyJivesCo

Sales 4,838
On Etsy since 2009

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...

    Jill is my studio manager who takes care of the daily production cue so I can focus on the big picture and new designs. She basically keeps me sane and organized and is often the person who sends your mobile off with love.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 9, 2022
All items are handmade in my smoke-free studio and I only post items that I consider impeccable. I try to photograph my items so that you can see details but if you have a specific question about something please contact me and I'll be happy to help you.

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.

If you live in Pennsylvania I do collect sales tax for taxable items

Use this tutorial to help you through the checkout process:
I ship anywhere in the world.

>> US: All items are shipped USPS First Class or Priority Mail - check the listing for details and your estimated ship date as most items take 4 weeks to create before shipping.

>> EVERYWHERE ELSE: items are shipped USPS First Class Package (once shipped transit of 10-16 days shipping time is typical, but it can take up to 6 weeks or more). INTERNATIONAL BUYERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR CUSTOMS FEES and should check with local guidelines for import if they have any questions. I will not falsify customs forms, it is against Etsy's TOU and punishable by severe fines from the USPS. Some items do contain wood a natural material which may be held for quarantine in certain countries. Please check with your country for local import guidelines if you have any questions.

WHEN? Check individual listings for processing times. Please contact me if you need your order shipped faster than the time listed.

ADDRESS: I ship the address you give at checkout. I can ship to a gift recipient if requested (and send a gift note). Please make a note in the comments to seller when checking out if this is the case.

PACKAGING: Most items ship in a sealed plastic bag to protect the fabric, then shipped in a tyvek bag for most items or a cardboard box for delicate items.

Please contact me if you have any special shipping request!
