"Mobiles" are often used to decorate baby cribs.  It's not hard to imagine one with lambs.  While living in the USA, I sent several mobiles to friends in Brazil who had just had children or were about to have children.  The last one had Disney animals.  In one family the joke was that if the lady wanted to get pregnant, all she had to do is request a mobile from Dale.  Always happy to be of service!

 

By the way, "crib" is a slang word for "home".

Where's your crib, baby? = Where do you live?
