Mobiles are an important accessory for your child to gain first experiences with his environment. A mobile is much more than just an adorable decoration for your little one’s nursery. The gentle movements of the mobile will fascinate your child and encourage him to contemplate it. Looking at it will foster his perception as well as his sense of sight so that his brain can create three dimensional images. Mobiles that feature a sound mechanism and play music will awaken his interest by additionally approaching his sense of hearing. A mobile with soft sounds and harmonious movements bring variety into your child’s everyday life and enable him to explore his world in a playful way. More information >
Is there anything better than having the adorable little figures of the mobile that swing and twist gently by a soft breeze greet your child first thing in the morning just after he woke up? Chuckling cheerfully, your little one will lie in his bed and give you a beaming smile. Whether you attach the mobile above the baby cradle, cot or changing dresser – this cute toy adds some oomph to every room while giving your child moments of joy. Mobiles simply look amazing and promote your baby’s development. Already during his first months of life, when his motor skills are not yet fully developed, your child will try to reach for the mobile. He loves things that move and make sounds. New-born babies do not yet have a clear vision, but they do perceive movements and objects. He will fix his gaze on everything that is placed in front of his face with a distance of 20 to 35 cm. Particularly faces will attract your baby’s attention. New-born babies are able to recognise the face of their mother after about a month. Generally, everything your child can perceive with the senses available at this early stage of development is of interest to him. At that point, hearing and seeing play a major role. If you want to buy a mobile, you should make sure to get a model that features soft and gentle movements as well as a sound mechanism for playing music.
In order to ensure a healthy development of your child, it is important to give him toys that foster his skills and promote his senses. Infants and toddlers are fascinated by strong contrasts and patterns. Bright and clear colours are easiest to be perceived by the little ones. Toys that are selected on the basis of these criteria will have a positive influence on your child’s sense of sight. In order to make sure that your child can perceive the mobile properly, you should attach it to the right side of his cot or crib. 80% of the time, newborns will look to the right. Mobiles that are attached directly above his head or on the left side are less likely to be perceived and thus won’t have a positive effect on his development. Due to the fact that babies start reaching for things very early, you should make sure that the distance between mobile and your child is large enough so that your child cannot reach for it. Toys that feature either a red colour or black and white are most suitable for promoting his sense of sight, because such toys enable your child to recognise colours and patterns even better. Objects that move or make funny noises are much more interesting to your child than items that don’t have these features. That is why, mobiles that can play music are perfectly suitable for fostering your baby’s senses of sight and hearing. This way, your child will be able to perceive much more and be absolutely thrilled by the exciting variety offered.
You shouldn’t buy just any toy for your child, but make sure that it promotes his physical and intellectual development. Our online shop on kids-room.com offers a wide range of accessories and toys that are educationally worthwhile products. Children love music and voices – that is why, music boxes and CD players are perfect for entertaining and calming them. Sing your child a lovely song or else record stories and songs made by yourself. A cute wind chime in the visual field of your baby will give him first experiences with physical correlations. Simply pick your child up in your arms and let him touch the tubes so that they release sounds.
A rattle surely is the classic model among all baby toys. Your child will love to learn that he can produce sounds and noises on his own. Toys that squeak, crackle or respond to your child’s touch in another way foster his tactile sense.
Other very popular toys among infants are soft books and finger puppets. Soon your little one will show first preferences for certain characters and greet them with cheerful movements of his arms.
Even a mirror will delight your child immensely. The important thing about the mirror is that it should be unbreakable. At first, your child won’t understand that he sees himself in the mirror but he still will be absolutely thrilled to see his reflection. At the age of approximately three months, he will start smiling back at the image in the mirror.
