9 Modern Mobiles for a Baby Crib


There’s nothing quite as whimsical as a beautiful hand-made mobiles for a baby crib. While they are certainly practical when they can entertain a baby for 5 precious minutes while you brush your teeth but they can also be stylish focal points in a modern nursery.


The majority of what we have below is more for artistic features in the nursery.  This mobile was one of our favorite and most special gifts we got for our shower.  Here is a little list of our favorites, while they all aren’t necessarily inexpensive; they are certainly a quality item that can be passed down.

Something fun to note is that while traditionally these are hung over the crib, there are other places you can hang them in the nursery for a more unique look. Check out this one hanging over a changing table:

Kikkerland Photo Mobile with 10 clips

How great would it be to hang all black and white pictures of your family and favorite memories above your baby’s crib?  And at $8…I might get one to hang over my bed!

Drops of Color Etsy Shop

This shop has some incredible hand made mobiles! This Star Wars mobile is too much to handle and who doesn’t love sea creatures? $95.


Whimsical butterflies

I would imagine this to go in a corner next to a rocking chair and act as a real statement piece. $55

Hanging Pom Pom Mobile

A personal fave.  This modern mobile for your baby’s crib is simple yet trendy and classic all at the same time.  $60

Heirloom Circus Mobile

This is so spectacular, I just love it! Imagine this mobile hanging over your baby’s crib.  It’s colorful and fits with any animal theme.

Hot Air Balloons

this mobile for a baby crib is more than just for a crib, it’s art!  Made from fabric and with so much detail, it’s completely spectacular.  At $280 for 5 balloons, it’s certainly something that will be passed from generation to generation.


Another really fun (and budget friendly) idea is to forgo the tradition mobile altogether and create a DIY bunting banner like the one pictured here:

While those mobiles for over a baby crib are incredibly artistic, there are some that are just so entertaining.  Like this one pictured below from Tiny Love.  At least for my children these with the movements and lights and sound is really what gave me the factor to be able to get ready in the morning.
