• newborns can only see as far as 12 to 15 inches away (around the length of your forearm and hand)
• they are most taken with their parents’ faces
• they are drawn to simple but repeating geometric shapes in black and white
• at around 6 months of age, they begin to recognize animal forms, later calling them by name
With a background in Chemistry, Botany, and Zoology, graphic designer Surya and teacher Dave combined their passions to create an exciting world of animals and nature themes. Their unique learning toys for babies are designed to entertain and educate, tailored to every stage of a baby's development and backed by years of research. These safe and sustainable toys are perfect for stimulating a tiny mind.
As their youngster employed the Art Cards, they noticed that motor skills were improving with the baby being able to grab the cards to examine them. Furthermore, as tales were told for each animal, the infant could be observed listening and observing, while intermittently rotating the card. As the child neared one year of age, they may carry the cards and show them to others, requesting a story.
