2. Flensted Mobiles Puffing Troll Mobile On the island of Funen in Denmark, Flensted Mobiles, a family business, designs and makes mobiles that cover all facets of life. Relax, sit and watch the slow motion of a beautifully designed mobile enliven your space. "Puffing at trolls when feeling sad, lessens pain and makes you glad". Today's trollosophers do not believe that Puffing Trolls exist any more, but many, many years ago when trolls were still to be found in Denmark, it was common knowledge that if you fell and hurt yourself, you simply puffed at a troll and the pain stopped immediately. Remedies aside, add humor and charm to your space with this amusing mobile.
