    General Information

    Above the clouds ...

    ... the freedom must be boundless, this feeling is conveyed to you and your child by the colorful hot air balloons of this mobile - impressively even above the cradle, the changing table or in front of the window. Suspended from the delicate yet sturdy metal rods, the little balloons gently swing up and down and turn gently back and forth, as if they were actually drifting away with the wind, even though they are made of solid sheet steel. The retro-style colors glow brightly, the surfaces shimmer softly as if they were catching starlight. The mobile turns and twists, swings and sways and with it your child's gaze is captured by the calming dancing and floating.

    Such a mobile is not only an entertaining eye-catcher, but also promotes your child's cognitive and physical development. Even the youngest children are encouraged by the moving wonders of the world to do little gymnastic exercises and stretch towards the fascinating thing, kick in its direction and try to reach for it. It is therefore best to hang the mobile out of your child's reach. But even so, your child will playfully learn to fix their gaze, gradually distinguish colors and shapes and make out increasingly complex figures. As you can see: Freedom is not only limitless above the clouds, but also in the synaptic network of a child's development.

    Rich in detail and carefully crafted. Tin toys from Europe

    We do not want to tire of emphasizing how vanishingly small and soon probably completely disappeared the share of mechanical tin toys from European production is. Since the relocation of almost all tin toy production to the Far East, the remaining manufacturers in this country (as in the rest of Europe) are often left to fend for themselves. Some classics that were produced for decades, such as the Kalkulationsaffe Consul, have virtually disappeared - we have only found one manufacturer that produces it in India: The Düsseldorf-based sheet metal factory now maintains production facilities not only near Nuremberg, but also in New Delhi and Shanghai. And yet die Blechfabrik manufactures historical tin toys true to its motto of "preserving the historical gem". In order to fulfill this intention, the models are mainly handmade, if possible with the help of historical models and original stamping tools.


    Collector’s edition. Not suitable for children younger than 14 years of age.
