BabyShapes books 1-4


At birth a baby's visual limit is about 22cm. BabyShapes books 1-4 are created to be your newborn baby's first high contrast, black and white books. They are designed to be of interest to new babies and to help parents and carers better understand babies' early communication abilities, which is so important in developing secure attachments.

BabyShapes Books and Mobile


The BabyShapes set uses clear, distinct patterns with sharp outlines that newborn babies love. There are also faces that even newborn babies may copy! The high contrast shapes may appear odd or even a little boring to adults, but they are designed to hold babies' attention and the results from them is often breathtaking.

Babies need close contact with caregivers, as well as gentle stimulation from a variety of sources. BabyShapes books and mobile do both, and help promote secure attachments and bonding through close, shared experience.

There is continued debate as to whether or not new babies can see in colour, but it is agreed that they are drawn to high contrast images. These simple books have been specially developed to interest a baby from birth.

Black and White Soft Play Mat


Black and white shapes fascinate young babies.
This Black & White Soft Play Mat is designed to stimulate babies' brains and is perfect for baby to safely roll and sit up on hard floors.
There is some concern that babies spend too much time on their backs, which delays developing muscles used to pull up (and so walk). This mat is perfect for 'tummy time' and helps develop upper body strength. (Always supervise tummy time.) Black & White Soft Play Mats are made from EVA (the same material as flip flops.) This means they are very soft, durable and lightweight and completely wipe clean. So if your child dribbles, spills food, is sick or worse, you only need a baby wipe to make it as good as new. You can even use it as a changing mat!

The mats are also ideal for parents or carers who have children with special needs, as the mats provide a great surface for regular physio.
