Black & White
New-born babies are able to see from birth; however, they can only focus at a distance of 8 - 10 inches or 20 - 25 centimetres.
Until babies reach around six months of age, they will respond best to bold, contrasting geometric shapes. Babies find these images more interesting than multi coloured ones and will be more likely to engage in the experience for longer.
Studies show that infants not only prefer to look at these images, but that such images like black and white graphics can; help increase concentration skills, stimulate brain cell connections (using both left and right side of brain) and increase attention span.
Why not have a look at our leaflet and try some of the black and white activities!
