I don't really want to spend $40 for baby toys so in the meantime, my mom found this website (http://www.oh-baby1.com/infstim/graphics.html) where you can download black and white images for free.
Can I just tell you how much Anna Claire likes to look at these?
They capture her attention immediately. We have 16 images in all and we rotate through them. Researchers have found that newborns respond best to contrasting colors and that visual stimulation produces developmental advantages including enhanced curiosity, attentiveness and concentration.
She'll be guest posting for me tomorrow on "What It's Like To Be an 8-Week Old Genius."
