Fandanglings for your Nursery Review

Every so often I run into a mom made product that just amazes me. I’m not sure why, considering only another mom would truly know and understand the needs of other moms and children. This month, I was introduced to a product so simple, yet to so smart for nursery decor and entertainment, I just had to share it!

Meet Fandangling

Invented by work from home mom to two young children, Anne created the Fandangling – a less than ordinary mobile style entertainment system for a nursery or child’s room.

Fandangling turns any ceiling fan into an interesting mobile that is totally safe for kids of all ages as it is out of their reach.  It is a very unique baby/child gift and it will last the child (and their parents) much longer than traditional crib mobiles, which you generally remove once the baby can reach for them.  Fandangling enhances the décor of any room, not just a nursery, and is loved by kids (and adults!) of all ages.


  • Easily Attaches to Any Ceiling Fan in Minutes
  • Mesmerizes Children of All Ages
  • No More Batteries or Winding the Mobile
  • Does Not Interfere with Normal Fan Use
  • Currently available in 8 different kits and can be customized for your decor.

Our Experience

Before opening the Fandangling package, I already had a feeling these would be a genius idea. After going through several mobiles that attach to the crib, we realized this set up was so much safer and would require no maintenance in comparison to a traditional mobile.

Before starting to set up the Fandangling system we vacuumed and cleaned the fan blades with a damp cloth to prepare. My husband was kind enough to help in the process as he’s the tall one in our house. First, he attached the Velcro base to the top edge of the fan blade. Repeating the process for each blade.

Each Fandangling is already attached to a piece of Velcro which was easy enough to stick right onto the Velcro base.

In less than 5 minutes, all of the Fandanglings were hanging and ready to spin. On the low setting, they swirl around the room just fast enough to capture your attention and slow enough to identify what little hanging object is whizzing by.

Our girls who share the “Butterfly Garden” nursery who are 11 months and 2 1/2 years old were just thrilled with the new addition to their room. Overall, the set up process was extremely easy. We now don’t have to worry about changing any batteries, choking hazards or damage to the crib from attaching a mobile. The sweet little Fandangling butterflies can easy be removed or replaced.
