WHY BLACK + WHITE?
Before a baby learns to reach and grab with their hands or crawl and sit-up, their eyes are providing important information and stimulation for their development. A baby's brain undergoes an amazing period of development from birth to three — producing more than a million neural connections each second. High-contrast imagery offers the best opportunity for newborns to focus on visual stimuli and promotes visual exploration and engagement.
More than just entertainment, visual focus on a stimulus such as art cards can foster a sense of calm and coherence in visually busy spaces. A card placed over a diapering area can be used to redirect attention of wiggly infants, making diaper time a little easier on parents and caregivers. Furthermore, intriguing imagery invites commentary and conversation, encouraging adults to engage more with baby.
WHAT BABIES SEE
Wee Gallery Art Cards grow with baby first as visually appealing shapes, and later as flashcards for object name recognition.

Early on, baby cannot see color well, but black and white patterns and distinct edges will engage young eyes and help them focus.
6 - 9 MONTHS
Edges and patterns begin to take shape as a complete image emerges — revealing an exciting new pal.
Depth perception is developing and dexterity begins to improve. Good luck getting these out of baby's hands now!
