Have you been wondering why so many baby toys and books feature high-contrast black-and-white illustrations?
That’s because up until about three to six months of age, babies can only see between 12 to 15 inches in front of them and can only really see in black, white, and grey tones.
Choosing toys and décor in high contrast black and white can be extremely beneficial for your child’s development because it’s easier for them to focus on, which helps them strengthen their eyesight and ability to concentrate.
Essential Baby says, “A monochrome color scheme filled with contrasting patterns and shapes provides a newborn with the best form of visual stimulation.”
Shades of black and white send the most vital signals to a baby’s brain, explains the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute. These strong signals can help stimulate brain growth and aid in visual development.
When it comes to creating a visually stimulating black-and-white nursery, the possibilities are endless.
Older children can use these blocks for sensory play, activities, chess, etc.
Blocks are perfectly sized for a baby to grasp and play and are finished with EN71-certified paints. The set includes 24 blocks and a tray.
