Montessori Mobile – Gobbi
The Gobbi mobile is quintessential Montessori. It’s easily one of the most recognizable Montessori infant materials. These beautiful, airy mobiles are made from a single color spheres in varying shades. They are then hung at a 45 degree angle, with the darkest color hung the lowest and the lightest color in the highest position.
This mobile helps babies work on their visual discrimination skills. The slight change in color is both intriguing and beautiful. The Gobbi mobile is the third in the Montessori visual mobile series. It is often introduced between six and eight weeks, sometimes a bit later.
