I have just finished making this Gobbi Mobile for a friend of mine who gave birth to a little girl. I have made the mobile a few times out of various materials with varying levels of success. I am really pleased with this effort and wanted to share. I have been thinking of making Montessori Infant Materials for sale and I'm wondering whether anyone out there would be interested in buying this sort of thing? This mobile is made from pine (natural, unvarnished, unstained), satin ribbon, polystyrene balls, organic cotton for the hanging thread and is glued with a non-toxic glue. I have no idea what I would charge for something like this - it took about 7 hours to make (the wrapping of the balls takes forever!)
I am now making and selling these mobiles (and other Montessori 0-3 equipment) at my new blog http://www.montessorihomes.blogspot.com/
