BabyShapes books 1-2-3


At birth a baby's visual limit is about 22cm. BabyShapes books 1-2-3 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.

The I-Qube is cheap enough to buy two or three, so they can be dotted around baby's immediate environment.

An ideal affordable small gift for any newborn baby!
