Newborn Learning Toys

Did you know newborns mostly see in black and white? It’s true. We asked out go-to resident pediatrician, Dr. Payal Adhikari, about the toys that best stimulate infant development, and she told us, “Anything that incorporates black, white, colors, textures, lights, and sounds is a sensory dream for new babies. Toys that include these features are great for developing brains. And since newborns mostly see in black and white, books with sharp contrasts will keep their attention.”

Based on her guidance, here are M+A’s picks for the best newborn toys that entertain and stimulate tiny brains.
