Black and White Baby Toys Your Newborn Can See

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!

Black and White Baby ToysI had heard that a baby’s eyesight isn’t fully developed when 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.

That means that newborns can see strong contrasts best. And no two colors show a starker contrast 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. I realized he was likely curious about the high-contrasting lines that the blinds and their shadows had cast.

That also explains why black and white baby toys are perfect for newborns 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 found and listed several favorites below. From stuffed animals to squeakers, these toys are perfect for playtime:
