Fandangling Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

I've always liked the baby mobiles that you see in the store. They always looked so fluffy and cute, but they wouldn't last as long as we would need them, and I couldn't attach it to little guy's changing table to keep his attention during diaper and ostomy cares. So, we never got one. I was talking to my mom one day about something that would hold his attention, so I could work quickly doing the cares that he doesn't like. Then I saw a review and giveaway over at Minnesota Mama's Must Haves for Fandangling and thought, 'you know, that would be so much better than a baby mobile!'... I had recently started Happily Southern, so imagine my surprise when Anne who developed Fandangling for her daughter Lia, emailed me, asking if I wanted to host a review and giveaway!

Here's what Anne says about Fandangling's story:


"I invented Fandangling quite by accident. It all started with our daughter Lia. When she was born we were seeking ways to keep her happy and interested in her room. When I put the first Fandangling on the fan in her room, her eyes lit up and the rest, as they say, is history.

I quickly realized that Fandangling was great for babies – my Mom friends all love it. As Lia grew older and more people came in contact with Fandangling, it became clear that Fandangling wasn't just for babies.

Fandangling is surely the next generation mobile, but older kids love it as well. Our friend's 7 year old daughter loves puppies. The Puparazzi kit was a favorite gift and the perfect accent to her room. Whether her fan is on or off, Fandangling livens up her room and is an eye catching part of the decor. Little boys love it too. Whether they like bugs or sports, adding a Fandangling to their room is fun and cool.

Fandangling has become a wonderful toy – it is for kids of all ages and even adults. Whether you are looking to soothe or just make an unmistakable statement in a room, Fandangling is the answer."

— Anne



We received the Safari kit for review. I let J pull the kit out of the packaging and the look on his face when he saw all the animals was priceless. He would go in the room for the next several days and just sit down to watch the fan!

Fandangling was incredibly easy to install. All I used was a ruler and pencil, although I didn't really need the ruler. The best part about Fandangling is that J isn't able to reach it and yank on it, so it lasts longer.

J loves his Fandangling and it makes my job taking care of his ostomy easier, because I can get him to watch the animals on the fan and sign what each animal is. You can also take the Fandangling off the fan at any time, since they are attached by velcro. J will ask sometimes if I will take one of the animals off for him and he will walk around showing everyone what he has with a big smile on his face.

Fandangling adds a nice finishing touch to any nursery or child's room and would also make a great gift for a new mom, as well. There are many Fandangling kits to choose from and you can also create your own kit, making your fan a fun place to watch.

BUY IT: If you don't want to wait, you can buy your own Fandangling for $19.95.
