GOBBI BABY MOBILE
GOBBI BABY MOBILE
For the first few months, a mobile over the baby’s bed helps to develop the baby's abilities to explore the world visually. Our baby mobiles can be used from birth through to the reaching and grasping stage. They can help the baby’s visual and sensorial experiences. As Dr. Montessori said, “babies absorb their environment visually before and as they develop movement”.
Our Gobbi inspired baby mobile is designed for babies that are approximately 7 - 10 weeks old but you can use it for as long as your baby shows interest. It’s the third mobile in the Montessori series and it’s best to introduce it after the Octahedron mobile and before the Dancers mobile.
The wool felt spheres have been chosen to introduce colour gradation. It will help your baby develop their visual abilities and stimulate focus and concentration.
In the box, you'll find:
- One wooden dowel
- Five 100% wool felt balls
- Pre-cut twine for the balls
- Pre-cut long twine to hang the mobile
- One needle
This mobile requires some assembly.
Each felt ball is approximately 5cm.
GOOD TO KNOW
Rotate the mobiles approximately every 2 - 3 weeks. After presenting all the mobiles you can present again the four mobiles of the series. Your baby will be happy to rediscover and draw new information, based on their new capabilities.
HOW TO HANG YOUR MOBILE
You can hang our baby mobiles in several ways. Please choose what works best for you and your space. We recommend hanging them with a hook from the ceiling or with a type of hanger such as an L-shaped bracket or a hanging plant bracket.
Present the baby mobile 20 - 25cm above the baby's torso, to give a good angle of vision and to ensure a good position of the baby’s neck.
Before presenting the mobile, inspect the set up to ensure safety.
Please note this is a visual mobile only and should not be used as a toy. Keep it out of the reach of children under 5.
Don't forget to supervise your little ones!
All our mobiles are handmade so please be gentle. :)
