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.

Sensory Playtime

This playmat from Sassy is an explosion of visually stimulating fun. Stripes, spots and bright solids will catch your baby's eyes, while lots of fun toys that rattle, crinkle and light up will keep your little one reaching, grabbing and rolling.

Available on$49.99.
