Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile - as a decoration for the home - was created in 1953 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe to celebrate the birth of their first daughter.

Christian Flensted became known as the "Uromager", a name difficult to translate into English, but means a "maker of mischievous things that are always on the move".
