This is a new cot book for use with babies from birth onwards, designed to provide visual stimulation. The book entirely folds out concertina-style to a double-sided frieze which can be fixed to the inside of a cot using the Velcro tabs attached. Newborns have been proven to prefer sharp, contrasting images due to an inability to completely focus, and so one side features a bold pattern showing a host of black and white animals including a hen, rabbit, duck and penguin with contrasting colour highlights. As babies’ focus develops a greater ability to identify colour tones and shades emerges, and so the reverse shows a bright pastel scene including animals such as a lion, parrot, monkey and elephant.
