The Munari Mobile is the first in the series of Montessori Mobiles. It is designed for babies from 2- 12 weeks old, but you can use it for as long as your baby shows interest.
The newborn is able to see only monochrome colours. Therefore, the Munari Mobile is made of black and white geometrical patterns with a plastic sphere. This design gives the child the greatest contrast in shades. The Munari Mobile helps the baby develop his/her ability to explore the world visually. This mobile moves gently with the air, allowing the child to observe it with great concentration.
The mobile should be hung above the infant’s floor bed from a mobile hanger or ceiling hook, about 30cm distance from the child’s eyes. It is a visual mobile and not meant to be grasped. The baby should be alert and awake while ‘working’ with the mobile. It is designed to develop concentration and tracking skills.
The mobile is made using Non-Toxic paint. All pieces are solid wood. For safety purposes, we have used a light weight plastic sphere instead of the traditional glass sphere. This mobile is only for visual purpose and is advised to keep this product out of reach for children under 5.
The different components are not assembled, because the wires become entangled in transportation. Everything needed to assemble the mobile is included. In the box, you’ll find:
- Three wooden dowels
- Three monochrome wooden shapes
- One plastic sphere
