I had so much fun researching & writing this post for my Montessori babies! My criteria for an exceptional Montessori mobile is pretty straightforward. The mobile needs to be simple, inviting to the eye, and be a calming presence in a baby’s room.
Generally speaking, a Montessori bedroom should be soothing, minimalistic, beautiful to the eye, neat, orderly, and made up of high-quality materials.
Sounds easier said than done, right?
Well, the good news is that there are baby steps you can take to begin curating a baby’s nursery that meets Montessori ideals. I am happy that I can be a part of that journey with you.
There are three basic visual Montessori mobiles. I’ve included additional mobiles falling within the same category. The three Montessori mobiles are Munari, Octahedron, and Gobbi.
Find the Perfect Montessori Mobile for Your Baby’s Room
I love the blues, greens, and yellows within this inviting mobile. Perfect for a boy’s or a girl’s nursery.
The simplicity and balance of the black & white drew my eye to this piece. The Munari mobile stimulates and develops the visual cortex, prefrontal, and parietal portions of the developing brain in newborns.
The youngest children (0 – 12 weeks) should explore the Munari mobile and is certainly welcomed into development as long as the child continues to show interest.
I want this mobile for above my bed! How gorgeous & inviting to the imagination!
A well-known concept in the Montessori world, this Gobbi mobile does not disappoint. What is Gobbi, you ask? The Gobbi Mobile consists of five spheres. It is the third in the Visual Mobile Series following the Munari and Octahedron Mobiles.
What a fun and joyful mobile to hang above a child’s bed!
There is something soothing about nature and this mobile fits the bill.
After the baby has perceived basic shapes from the Munari mobile, the Octahedron is just perfect to give them an idea of basic colors. Another mobile, the second to be specific, in the Montessori visual series. The mobile consists of three basic colors blue, yellow, and red.
Similar impacts to Munari, this visual stimulates a child’s developing brain while introducing an intriguing pinwheel shape.
I hope you enjoyed this list of Montessori mobiles. Please keep in mind while these mobiles are beautiful and ready to hang, it is highly possible to create a DIY Montessori mobile. Which one will you choose for your child’s Montessori bedroom?
