Visual perception - how babies discover the world
When they are born, babies can see , but sight is one of the senses that develops slowly over time. In the first few weeks of life, newborns can only see very vague and blurry images. They can recognize faces and contrasts, but babies are only able to follow an object with their eyes once they are one month old. In babies, this process requires high levels of muscle strength in the eye, and coordination.

Visual stimuli can be provided in many different guises: This could be a colorful mobile at the changing table or the baby's cot or the game trainer with so many parts to discover, touch and play. Or a colorful play cushion just begging to be examined, and the different effects help to train hand-eye coordination.
