Octahedron Mobile

The Octahedron Mobile is introduced to infants around 6 to 8 weeks old as part of the Montessori mobile series, following the Munari Mobile. It consists of three octahedrons made of reflective paper or foil in primary colors – typically red, blue, and yellow – suspended from a frame at different heights. The geometric shapes and bright colors are designed to attract the infant’s attention and are particularly suitable for this age when the baby begins to perceive colors more distinctly.

The Octahedron Mobile aids in the development of visual discrimination by encouraging the baby to focus on and track the contrasting colors and simple geometric shapes. Its design leverages the infant’s developing visual capabilities, providing a visually stimulating experience that promotes concentration and early color recognition. The use of primary colors and geometric forms introduces the child to fundamental visual and aesthetic concepts in a gentle and engaging manner.
