Lady Bird Mobile represents one of the most popular and beloved insects in the world - thought to bring good luck and nice weather. These sweet, fluttering forms are infectiously cheerful in modern kids' rooms and nurseries.
Flensted Mobiles created its first moving mobile over 50 years ago and the company has been expanding its assortment of playfully engaging and dynamic designs ever since. These modern moving mobiles are designed so that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance.
Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home
Your home is on fire and your children are gone
All except one, and that's little Anne
For she has crept under the warming pan
Five little ladybirds, climbing on the door
One flew away and then there were four.
Four little ladybirds, sitting on a tree.
One flew away and then there were three.
Three little ladybirds, sitting on a shoe
One flew away and then there were two.
Two little ladybirds, looking for some fun
One flew away and then there was one.
One little ladybirds, hiding behind the sun
One flew away and then there was none.
Some assembly required. Supplied with stainless steel suspension wire.

Flensted Mobiles gave birth to its first design, the Stork Mobile, in Denmark in 1953 when Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe celebrated the birth of their first daughter. Since then, the Stork Mobile, and its successors, have flown all around the world.
As the fledgling family business grew, it relocated to "The Stork's Nest" in Tommerup and eventually to the FLENSTED MOBILE CENTRE in Brenderup, nearly 15 years later, where it remains today. Christian's son, Ole Flensted, and his wife Aase now continue the family tradition. Original ideas and new mobile designs are issued regularly from their "Department of Space Resarch".
Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile - as a decoration for the home - was pioneered by the Flensted family. All Flensted Mobiles are designed so that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance. The Flensted family has always claimed that "creating mobiles is not just our job, it is our life".View other products from Flensted Mobiles
