Unique Mobiles for Cribs

Not many parents today feel their baby's nursery is complete without a mobile hanging over the crib. Some mobiles spin when they are wound up, some play music, some even light up and cast lights and shadows on the wall. Babies will notice a mobile when they are around six months of age. Mobiles are designed and placed above the crib for one main objective--to keep the baby occupied and soothed.

Geometrical Shapes

A mobile with different geometrical shapes can be unique and stimulating for baby. Researchers from Rutgers' Early Learning Project discovered that everything from the shapes to the colours in a mobile are important in a baby's development and can help them develop recognition skills more quickly as they grow and learn. Some parents feel strongly that an infant will notice a mobile at a younger age if it is black and white. This is due to the dramatic contrast between the two colours. Other parents argue that bright, bold colours are best for the child's visual development. Both are valid theories; it is simply a matter of taste.

Musical Instruments

Many mobiles today play music when they are wound up. For parents who are music lovers or play an instrument themselves, a mobile made of musical instruments is a creative way to bring a personal touch to baby's room. The benefits of playing music to babies, even when they are in the womb, is widely supported. A musical instrument mobile encourages baby to continue a love of music and to perhaps dream of one day becoming a virtuoso.

Sports Teams

Nothing gets a baby prepared to cheer on the home team more than gazing up at a mobile made of team emblems. This theme may help dad get involved in the design of the nursery and can make for an adorable decor for a boy or a girl. This design could be broadened from just one team to a mobile made of logos for every hometown team, from football and hockey to baseball and basketball.

Personal Touch

For the avid DIY crowd, designs and kits can be found to help parents make their own mobile, giving it a personal feel. Family pictures can be used, placed in brightly coloured, small plastic frames or printed and adhered to all sides of soft blocks. Ideas for a personalised mobile are endless. Remember when making a mobile, it will likely hang above baby's crib until she is old enough to stand and reach it. Make sure all items on the mobile are soft and safe, with no removable parts.
