Expand your passion for boats with this SailFun Mobile. A child-like version of the classic sail boat moves around seamlessly, as if out on the water. Gently cruising with an iconic seagull circling around, the only thing missing is the captain. Part of the 'click-a-mobile' series, you just need to 'click' the single elements together. This mobile is mounted on strings and pre-assembled with the hanger system.
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.
Some assembly required. Supplied with stainless steel suspension wire.
Material(s): Serigraphical foil

Flensted Mobiles: It's All in the Family
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
