Your baby loves to gaze adoringly at your face. But when he’s snug in his crib, he needs something else to rest his eyes on.
And Boston-based Almost Sunday Designs has the perfect mobile.
The custom-made numbers are handcrafted from patterned paper and feature butterflies, fish, or owls dangling from colorful ribbons. The delicate designs are reinforced with wire to help keep their shape but sway with the slightest movement. Choose your own colors or opt for a variety of bold, graphic designs.
Either way, all the creatures face downward, so baby’s kept company as he drifts off to sleep.
The eyes have it.
