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 Octahedron inspired baby mobile is designed for babies that are approximately 5 - 8 weeks old but you can use it for as long as your baby shows interest. It’s the second mobile in the Montessori series and it’s best to introduce it after the Munari mobile and before the Gobbi mobile.

We have chosen these vivid colours and reflective surface to capture your baby’s attention as they begin to see colours, patterns, shapes and depth in their new world.

In the box, you'll find:

  • A wooden dowel
  • Three pre-cut and pre-scored metallic coloured cardstock shapes
  • Pre-cut threads for the octahedrons
  • Pre-cut long thread to hang the mobile
  • nstructions

This mobile requires some assembly.

When assembled, our Octahedrons are 11cm each.

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.

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. :)
