Here’s A Game of Thrones Nursery Mobile to Captivate Your Little Khal or Khaleesi

Winter Is Coming

This Game of Thrones mobile is perfect to teach Stark babies that "Winter is Coming" and to ensure that Tyrell tykes are "Growing Strong."  I'm not so sure if "Fire and Blood" is the best combination for a nursery though.

Meddling Kids

We here at The Mary Sue are a fan of strong women, and we will not hesitate to put the spotlight on strong women who become mothers while still pursuing their dreams. Like, literally, they give birth/go into labor while in the middle of something related to their dreams. So when one woman went into labor upon viewing new footage from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim at QuakeCon and then waited until the end of the presentation to go to the hospital, we have to wonder: Is it our birthday?
