For your baby, in 1958

This is a pretty sweet piece from my collection. It's a mobile for your baby's crib with dangling characters from Sleeping Beauty. They include the nameless animal characters, which I think is pretty cute.
I couldn't find a thing to attach this to that would make it stay up, (and wasn't made of nice wood) otherwise I would have taken a photo of how this hangs, but when upright, looks just like the photo, so you'll have to use your imaginations. :)
The plastic pieces that dangle remind me of the "before" state of those old Shrinky Dinks. (Let me hear it! Who loved Shrinky Dinks as a kid? I did!) When I got this, I was slightly tempted to bake it... but don't worry, I won't.

It DOES look like Shrinky Dinks! (Didn't you hate it when they sometimes curled up too much and if the ends touched, they STAYED curled?).

Something tells me that this mobile would not meet today's safety standards, it looks pretty flimsly!
