The owl has always been associated with wisdom.
No doubt due to the big round eyes that make them look smart and thoughtful.
At Flensted Mobiles we have added a twist of humor to the owls characteristic look, with fresh colors and books on the stomach.
The result is “the wise owls”
It is a classic and fun mobile in our product line. An excellent gift idea for the recent graduate. Or maybe for the avid reader in the family, where they will dress the office in front of the bookcase.
You can almost hear the owl’s hoot.

About Flensted Mobiles: The Flensted Mobiles fairytale is actually based on two straws and three paper storks. For this was what Christian Flensted cut out and assembled in 1953 when the christening of his daughter, Mette, was going to be celebrated. The result was the stork mobile, which was only conceived of as being a fun, ingenious and personal gift, but ended up as the prelude to Flensted Mobiles. For when it comes to mobiles, rest and restlessness make a happy couple. In 1982 Grethe and Christian Flensted decided to pass the baton on to Ole. In connection with this change of generation at Flensted Mobiles, the running of the company was now taken over by Ole and his wife, Aase. They have continued to operate the mobiles company paying great respect to the original ideas.
