Did you know that newborns can see high-contrast colors best? Find the most-loved black and white baby toys for your little one here!
I had heard that a baby’s eyesight isn’t fully developed once he’s born. This makes sense since seeing isn’t exactly as important to his survival as, say, sucking or crying. And what is important for him to see—his mother’s breast to feed or her face to feel safe—are all within arm’s length.
Still, that only means that newborns can see strong contrast images best. And no two colors show a starker contrast and the right level of stimulation than black and white.
I still remember setting my eldest down on a blanket in the living room where, without fail, he’d turn his face toward the blinds. It was then that I realized he was likely curious about the black and white shadows and contrast that were so easily seen from the window.
That also explains why black and white baby toys are perfect for young babies to explore. They provide not only the different textures and sounds a toy typically does, but the visual stimulation you can only get from high-contrast patterns.
I scouted black and white baby toys and listed several favorites below. From sensory play to stuffed animals to squeakers, these are all highly-rated toys perfect for playtime with newborns and infants.
