Black and White
Research shows that showing your baby black and white stimulus from a young age helps with faster visual and cognitive development. Our black and white sensory cards are the gift that grows with your baby, helping to support many developmental milestones and encouraging a love of wildlife from newborn up to 6 years.

WHY BLACK & WHITE?
Learning to see is much like learning to walk or talk. It's a skill that your baby develops over time. Vision is one of the last senses to develop in your little one, with their colour vision not fully formed until around five months of age. One of the first colours your baby will see is red. Until then, they can only make out black, white, and grey tones in the blurry world around them. Showing your baby black and white stimulus from a young age allows them to focus their attention and increase concentration levels, supporting them with their visual and cognitive development.
NEWBORN-5 MONTHS: In the first months of life, your baby can only see black, white, and grey tones. The high-contrast illustrations on our black and white sensory cards will enable your baby to focus, leading to faster visual and cognitive development at this crucial stage.
6-18 MONTHS: Each black and white sensory card includes the animal's name on the back, perfect for when your baby is learning their first words. They will also love to pick out their favourite animals amongst the other cards.
18 MONTHS & BEYOND: Also on the back of each black and white sensory card is a fun fact and interactive question about the animal to help your little one learn about the wonderful wild world from a young age. These cards are so versatile that they will be enjoyed well into pre-school age and beyond.
TRUE TO NATURE
Unlike most children's illustrations, the pictures on our black and white sensory cards are true to nature and not overly-stylised, helping your baby to recognise the animals in real life or from photographs.
My baby adores his new black and white sensory cards with beautiful pictures of African animals on. They really capture his attention, with the added bonus that his big sister enjoys looking at them with him. Double winner!
The product is amazing. Looks great and comes packaged well. Our little boy loves these black and white sensory cards. Worth a purchase. The facts on the cards have taught me a thing or two as well.
