    I am looking for......

    I went to a friends place a few wks ago and she has this awesome thing hanging from her ceiling in the nursery above bubs cot and change table - its kind of like a hanging mobile but u pull down on it and it bounces up and down!
    we are moving house this month and i cant wait to decorate Bianca's room -
    My friend got these mobiles from her MIL who went on hols in Victoria i think??? anyways i have looked EVERYWHERE here in brissy for them -
    Does anyone know what im talking about and if so where i can get a couple from????

    There's a gift shop here that has similar things, but they are more wind chimes.
    They are the same, just not soft. You could try Toyworld? I think I've seen something like that there.

    YES!!!! I think thats what im talking about Sami!!!! i think the one's my friend has is a bee and another one is something sitting in a plane - and when u pull down on them they bounce up and down and if they have wings they flap - they are wooden!!!
    they are kinda springy!

    However i will try and google and see if i can find one!

    Yes, I was going to say to try markets - but big scale markets not the little community ones.

    Perhaps Jigsaw might have them too being wooden?? (They would be $$$ coming from there though).

    Maybe try E-bay under mobiles/wooden??

    Good luck! They have them in my doctors surgery and at child health clinic too.

    LOL - okay it screws into your ceiling has a 1 long tightly wound springy bit too it with a mobile on the end of it which is wooden -
    it kinda is like the butterfly one on that site - but it dosent have any strings or anything attached to it - looks a bit better made type thing!
    im going to msg her and see if they have a particular name or something
