Mobiles for Babies
Mobiles are one of the most popular toys for infants. They instantly add a new dimension to the primarily horizontal view babies have. Mobiles with high contrast patterns and colors provide a great deal of wonder, entertainment and interest for new babies.
There are now also take along models that can be clipped just about anywhere, such as to car seats and strollers. Most are designed with safety features so that when baby touches them, they can have another sensory experience to enjoy.
Many mobiles also include pleasant melodies that serve to soothe the baby while away from home in an unfamiliar environment.
Mobiles help babies learn about self-concept. By repeating an action to get more effect (such as wriggling in the crib
to shake a mobile hanging above, smiling and cooing to get the caregiver to smile back).
Don’t hang mobiles hanging over a crib once an infant learns to stand up. They could become a choking hazard.
