The Munari Mobile is the first mobile in a series of four visual mobiles, designed to help develop the visual sense.
You can introduce this mobile from as early as two weeks. The Munari is made up of two dimensional shapes and a glass ball, which reflects the light. As babies are born only able to see in black and white, the mobiles are made designed with these two colours; two shades which offer the greatest contrast.
The light materials allow the mobile to move very slowly, allowing the baby the opportunity to practise the important skill of tracking it.
As this is a visual mobile it should be hung at about 30cm above your baby, out of arms reach while your baby lies flat beneath it on a suitable mat on the floor.
Note: Don'thang the Montessori mobiles above a baby's sleeping area. These mobiles are designed to help develop tracking and concentration. They are typically hung in the baby's movement area when they are awake and alert.
