Picture of Bar Codes for Babies: a Mobile From Boxes
First baby. Need a mobile. They are expensive.

Boxes have bar codes.

Bar codes are high contrast.

Babies like high contrast images in the first three months (source and source).

The photos and below videos should be enough directions for you to make them.

I know I could have made a better hanger, but he grew so fast!

(We also liked the "Wimmer-Ferguson Infant Stim-Mobile" and it was reasonably priced)
