The Little Prince - Le Petite Prince - Wooden Baby Mobile
A charming baby mobile for a "Little Prince" themed baby nursery!
Le Petite Prince (or, The Little Prince) is such a sweet and tender story to enjoy with children as both a whimsical fantasy and a reminder for the grown-ups to entertain their imaginations every once and awhile. This wooden baby mobile incorporates some of the memorable scenes and characters from the book along with several stars.
I've drawn the illustrations in the same style as the original book to accompany your Little Prince nursery decor. I've even included both drawings of the Prince's boa constrictor digesting an elephant - including the one that grown-ups think is a hat. The story by Antoine de Saint-Exupery will come alive hanging from your ceiling.

How long is the mobile? How do I hang it?
Unless a request is made when ordered, mobiles are strung to be hung from the ceiling: About 4 to 5 feet long (from ceiling to bottom of mobile). If you would like the mobile to hang at a specific length, please let me know in the "Notes" section during checkout.
Can you repair my mobile?
I have mobiles in my studio that have been hanging there for years! They even spin daily from the breeze of a nearby ceiling fan. They are soundly constructed, but if for any reason you have pieces that fall off or become entangled I am happy to restring your mobile at no cost. You pay to ship to me and I will pay for the return shipping. Or if you are located near San Diego, we can arrange for a drop-off. Please contact me to make arrangements.
Can I hang my mobile from a crib attachment?
If you would prefer to hang this mobile from a crib mobile attachment, please select "Hang from Crib" under "Hanging Length". (IF THIS OPTION IS NOT PROVIDED: This is one of my larger mobiles that is best hung from the ceiling.)
How do I clean the mobile?
Made of durable wood, Flying Tree mobiles can be easily dusted with a damp cloth or household cleaning spray (as opposed to paper or fabric mobiles) and will continue to look every bit as wonderful as the day they were hung for years to come.
How heavy is the mobile?
Most mobiles weigh between 1-1/2 to 2 pounds.
Can you tell me how you make these wooden mobiles?
I personally create each component of Flying Tree mobiles with care in my home studio. I sand and shape each piece of wood individually before adding illustrations (printed onto transfer paper), fabric or paper. Mobile pieces are then sealed with a high gloss varnish. Plastic monofilament (I use a 12-pound capacity for pieces that only weigh a few ounces each) is knotted to metal eyelets that have been screwed into each piece, making all connections extra secure.
Do they come with a spinning mechanism?
Flying Tree mobiles tend to move in even the slightest breeze since they are strung with very lightweight monofilament, as opposed to string or ribbon. They do not come with mechanisms for spinning, but even in the act of photographing the mobiles I find it extremely difficult to make them be still! I think you'll enjoy their soft and natural movement as much as I do.
