Improve Baby’s Development
High-contrast images stimulate the cells in your little one’s brain to strengthen and connect. These cells have a direct pathway to baby’s brain, accelerating your child's brain growth and increasing their attention span. What's more, the most effective activity for improving a baby's brain plasticity at an early age is visually tracking the movement of contrast images.
Babies Love High-Contrast Images
Research has repeatedly shown that babies are mesmerized by black-and-white patterns ━ not only are starkly-contrasting images the easiest for your child to perceive, but studies have confirmed that babies consistently prefer and are captivated by contrast designs.
