Baby Toys: mobiles

Black and white shapes for contrasting visual interest, musical distractions to amuse a tired infant, and pretty toys that sway gently as your baby goes off to sleep.

Mobiles that hang from the ceiling or attach to a cot side encourage your baby to follow shapes and colours with her eyes as her eyesight begins to develop. In the first six weeks or so, simple black and white shapes work well, placed at a distance no further than about 30cm. Once your baby can reach up, make sure any hanging toys are moved further away and cannot be pulled down and cause injury.
