Nursery Ideas: Unique Baby Mobiles
These cool mobiles will surely catch your -- and your baby's -- eye.
Thankfully, the mobile you pick to complete your nursery doesn't have to be made of plastic, flash strobe lights and make rainforest sounds. Nursery style has come a long way, and now there are handmade, unique mobiles that speak to the cool decorating style many of us seek throughout our homes.
In fact, these five mobiles are so styling, they'd even add a touch of whimsy outside the nursery (I want that cloud mobile for my kitchen!).
