Ahhs: Black and White Toys

oh, baby toys! in the beginning, i had such an aversion to baby toys...all the plastic with every color of the rainbow packed into two square inches. my husband and i got A LOT of eye-rolling from grandparents and friends due to our baby toy snobbery. my feeling was: i live in a small apt, so if i have to stare at these toys all day, they better be beautiful or at least semi-pleasing to the eye.

regardless of your level of toy pickiness, black and white toys are the way to start. babies love black and white anything. it's a fact. when henry was just a few days home from the hospital he would stare at the weesee flash cards for minutes, which is like hours in baby time. even at 7 months henry still prefers his zebra to any of his other plush toys.

the weesee videos are mesmerizing even for adults, but wait till baby is a little order to share these:


here are some lovely b+w toys for you and baby:
