Octopus Music Mobile

Playing Johannes Brahms’ “Wiegenlied” (better known as Brahms’ Lullaby or “The Cradle Song”) this strange and sweet octopus has been made to help babies get to sleep. Produced with 100% cotton chambray, it’s easily wiped clean. The 11.8-inch tall creature is also soft—in case a young one gets a hold of it.
