Nora Newcombe, PhD., a developmental psychologist at Temple University in Philadelphia, previously explained to Parents.com that your baby will only be able to observe their surroundings for the first three months. Their eyesight is still developing, so bright and bold colors are the way to go. Newcombe added: "Toys don't have to be black and white, so long as the colors contrast with each other."
As babies get older, their relationship to toys will change."Your baby is fascinated by cause and effect and will enjoy any toy that responds to his actions and makes use of newly acquired motor skills," psychologist Robin Goodman, Ph.D., director of NYU Child Study Center's website aboutourkids.org, previously told Parents.com.
