I'm giving a gift to a 7 mo. child living in a hospital and the parents requested a "cot mobile no fabric". Not sure why that is, but I'm guessing allergy issues or to avoid contamination of some sort.

I'm having a hard time finding mobiles that fit the bill in Amazon or other websites and I need to order it asap so it can be delivered in time. My main problem is most cot mobiles have plush toys (which I guess count as fabric!) or don't specify what they're made of.

Could someone please recommend me an appropriate cot mobile? I found a ceiling hanging one, but I guess it should be cot-based.

Price is not really an issue, delivery time might be (I need it in London by Thursday Dec 16th).

Thanks so much in advance!

(By the way, I picked this gift to give because the boy has the same name as my son... And they're only a month apart in age! Couldn't help choosing him.)

Thank you so much! You're right, that would fit the bill. But I think I'll get one of the wooden ones. Cheers!

Actually got this one since the others are ceiling hung. Thanks for the tip!

Here is one site that seems to sell reasonably priced wooden cot mobiles The Gifted Goat

Little Monkey Murals also has a nice assortment except I did'not notice how the Cot Mobiles are fitted.

I would have thought Paper origami cot mobiles would have been easy to find :( but I'm mistaken.

Thank you so much! Love the wooden ones. Will get one of those!

Actually -- I can see now the wooden ones are meant to hang from the ceiling, won't fit to the cot. :( Can't use them...
