The tactile mobiles come after Montessori visual mobiles. It is usually introduced around 4 months, when the baby starts to move more voluntarily.
It is intended to be hung above the baby’s movement area.
How to introduce the activity to your child?
The Ring on Elastic Mobile is introduced when the baby starts to grasp things and bring them to his/her mouth. At first the mobile hangs at a height where the baby can easily grasp the ring.
The child grasps the ring, brings it to the mouth, releases it, and the objects springs back to its original position, ready to be grabbed and brought to his mouth again. It gives to a child experience with depth perception. This way the child gains knowledge of himself and his environment.
After the baby has had enough practice, it can be shortened a bit to let the baby try to reach out further. The elasticity of the mobile, aids in arm and wrist movement of the baby.
What is included?
A wooden teether ring with a bright rainbow colored crochet pattern suspended from an elastic band.
What will my child learn?
The mobile gives a perfect reaction to your little one’s every move while stimulating their sense of touch, sight, and hearing.
In addition to experience with cause-and-effect, these serve as an aid in the development of hand-eye coordination, and visual tracking.
It also strengthens the muscles in the eyes, neck, arms, and core.
In addition, the baby will pull this ring towards herself and use it as a teether.
