Your baby’s eyesight isn’t fully developed when she’s born. She can’t make out far away objects or differentiate between all the colors of the rainbow. What can she see? You when you’re close by (hooray!) and big contrasts between light and dark colors. That’s why you’ll find many baby toys and goodies in high contrasting black, white and red patterns. Stimulate your baby’s vision with these bold toys, blankets, art and books – some parents even swear they’ll magically calm and captivate your infant.

Statement Blanket

The bold ABC print on this mod blanket is sure to captivate your baby during tummy time play. While this blanket is a splurge, the four-ply construction and 4-foot square size make it big enough for sitting on in the park and just right for using later on when your toddler needs to be tucked in with a blanket in the crib.

Available on, $124.
