Why Black and White Toys for Babies?... High Contrast Colors REMAIN the best!
Posted Wednesday, March 6, 2007, by Sarah Kennedy, Parent Educator.
Newborns can see from birth, just not as clearly as an older child or adult. Until your child is about six months of age, he will respond best to bold, contrasting colors and graphics. That’s why it’s important to provide your baby with toys that feature the visual extremes of black, white and red. High-contrast colors will captivate and hold baby’s attention, encouraging visual development as well as physical activity – like wiggling, kicking, and arm waving.
