About BABY EYE baby books

BABY EYE label was founded in Stuttgart, in Germany by designer and architect Agnieszka Sawczyn. Out of love for her kids and passion for design, she lovingly creates books for babies, which support them optimally in their development.

There is a medical expertise behind the creation of BABY EYE baby books. The research on which BABY EYE is based proves that babies see blurry and therefore show preference for black, white and bright primary colors. The designer consciously translates this knowledge into her ideas and develops products, which are tailored to babies’ needs.

Mom with her son

Susann - Mom of 2-year-old Elias

“Our son Elias did not respond to any other baby book so positively as to BABY EYE. Our therapist from Children’s Eye Clinic in Leipzig introduced us to BABY EYE books. No other book for babies like "Black & White" or Duden series - "My first words" etc. or several others made such a good impact on our son. It was with BABY EYE when Elias for the first time was making joyful sounds while looking concentrated at a book.”

Baby Bendik loves baby books

Nadine - Mom of 1-month-old Bendik

Baby Lena likes BABY EYE

Melanie - Mom of 14-month-old Lena

Baby Elena loves BABY EYE books

Verena - Mom of 5-month-old Elena

“My daughter Elena looks at the BABY EYE baby book - Small animals - patterns really very interested - even if it is like almost everything else explored extensively with the mouth. The contrasts and the clear colors immediately catch the eye and I noticed that my daughter could perceive this without being overwhelmed by color masses. Personally, I find this baby book very lovingly designed and I had special pleasure in explaining Elena the animals and the details shown on the respective second page.”

Mom of baby Romy

Even her older sister - now 19-month-old - still leafs the pages of this cute baby book and looks at the beautiful pictures.”



Experts about BABY EYE baby books

BABY EYE expert

Stefanie Zotz - Speaker and maternity nurse

“As a maternity nurse and speaker, I am often asked by expectant and young parents about my favorite book titles and I must admit that BABY EYE book series is absolutely one of them - an absolute must-have in the baby starter set. Why is that? Newborns see very blurry, but their interest in discovering and understanding the world is great. Watching and exploring is the motto of this clever series, which is fun even for the little ones.”

BABY EYE expert

Marry Kotter - blogger and mother

“I know, people love to give babies cute stuffed animals. I did it myself before I became a mom. Unfortunately, my daughter has never been particularly interested in any stuffed animal. Now, in retrospect, I can say that I'm more excited about a great BABY EYE book. My daughter loved these books so much. Since babies can only see very little in the beginning, they are happy about the strong contrasts in these books designed especially for them.”

How does your baby see?

According to research, newborns see 30 times less sharp than adults. Babies see fuzzy and only at about 20 to 30 cm distance, but they can recognize light and outlines. For this reason, newborns and little babies are interested in contrasts and simple shapes with sharp outlines. They show preference for black and white and over time for red and primary colors.

BABY EYE - the first books for babies

Various series of BABY EYE books have been created specifically for babies to support their development and vision. Our baby books contain high-contrast illustrations on simple topics and promote baby's interest in black, white and as it grows in primary colors.

All our baby book series have been created to optimally adapt to babies' eyes at the respective stage of their development. Our first series contain three baby books:

The first baby book "My things - contrasts" is suitable for babies starting their first month of life. Newborns see blurry and show special interest for contrasts as well as black and white images. That's why this baby book contains high-contrast illustrations exclusively in black and white.

The second baby book "Our world - shapes", suitable for babies starting their 2nd month of life, contains high-contrast black-and-white and red images. The book contains red color pictures because red is the first color that babies distinguish well from other colors.

The third baby book "Small animals - patterns" is suitable for babies starting their age of 3 months. It is a cute book with black, white, red, blue and yellow - colors that babies distinguish well from other colors at the age of about 3 months.

BABY EYE baby books - why babies are so fascinated about them

“I could not believe that Bendik stopped crying on Daddy's arm when I showed him the newly arrived BABY EYE book - My things - contrasts.

What's so special about the BABY EYE baby books?

The sweet BABY EYE books support even the youngest babies' sense of sight and make them curious. They are adapted to babies' eyes in the respective age and parents can use them specifically.

Did you know that babies see the world quite differently than we adults do?

While the sense of hearing, taste, smell and touch are already well developed, the sense of sight in newborns is still the least developed and needs to be learned after birth. Your baby sees blurry and 30 times less sharp than adults. The world seen with baby eyes looks like through a frozen window. The sense of sight develops slowly and gradually and your child will see as well as an adult only after his first birthday. Studies done by the psychologist Prof. Ilona Kovacs prove that the sense of sight develops better as soon as the eyes are exposed to regular optical stimuli.

Do you now understand why it is so important to give the baby an environment in which to develop his vision well?

There is a medical expertise behind the creation of BABY EYE baby books. The research on which BABY EYE is based proves that babies see blurry and therefore show preference for black, white and bright primary colors. BABY EYE books are designed especially for the little ones and contain large, vivid, high-contrast images with sharp outlines. Our first baby book series - optimally adapted to babies' eyes at the respective stage of development consists of three books: My things - contrasts, Our world - shapes und Small animals - patterns.

Baby book "My things - contrasts"

While all senses are already well developed, the sense of sight in newborns is not fully mature. Babies see blurry and 30 times less sharp than adults, which is why they are particularly interested in contrasting black-and-white images.

The first baby book "My things - contrasts" - suitable for babies from the first month of life - was designed especially for the youngest and contains large, vivid illustrations exclusively in black and white. Each image also has a border, which is particularly important for focusing. Since babies see blurry, the images in black and white arise their interest.

Baby book "Our world - shapes"

The second baby book "Our world - shapes" contains large, high-contrast images in black, white and red - the first color that babies are able to distinguish better from other colors. The illustrations in red have a calming effect on the baby. The borders of the images help babies' eyes to focus better. The book is suitable for babies from the 2nd month of life.

The second baby book "Our world - shapes" contains large, high-contrast images in black, white and red - the first color that babies are able to distinguish better from other colors. The illustrations in red have a calming effect on the baby. The borders of the images help babies' eyes to focus better. The book is suitable for babies from the 2nd month of life.

Baby book "Small animals - patterns"

Over time, babies learn to distinguish different colors better from each other. In the 3rd month of life, they can already perceive bright primary colors. Baby's eyes have a very high threshold and do not feel overwhelmed by bright colors - that's why infants show more interest for vivid rather than pastel tones.

The third baby book "Small animals - patterns" - suitable from the 3rd month of life - contains large, high-contrast images and patterns in black, white as well as bright primary red, blue and yellow colors. This book teaches babies to distinguish colors better and helps with color learning. Each image has a border, which is particularly important for focusing. Older babies react with great enthusiasm to the book, because they already understand the meaning of some motives and relations between the pictures.

Charity - BABY EYE book helps

BABY EYE book helps creates aid projects for babies and children with eye diseases. Especially in the first year of life, which is so decisive for the development of the child, it is important for children with visual impairment to best support their sight through appropriate measures.

The sooner a visual impairment is recognized, the better are the possibilities of targeted supporting measures to influence this development favorably. That's why we support children’s eye clinics or schools and other early childhood care centers that help children through early intervention. Our BABY EYE baby books are also among the support measures that children’s eye clinics use successfully for the visual support of children with sight impairment.

BABY EYE book helps already supports the following institutions: Frühförderzentrum für sehgeschädigte Kinder an der LVR-Louis-Braille-Schule, Städtischer Eigenbetrieb Behindertenhilfe Interdisziplinäre Frühförder-und Frühberatungsstelle, Georg-Droste-Schule Förderzentrum für Sehen und visuelle Wahrnehmung, Johann-Peter-Schäfer-Schule, LVR-Karl-Tietenberg-Schule.

"BABY EYE baby books have already been used and are appealing to both parents and therapists. Our therapists report that children are also interested in the books." - Städtischer Eigenbetrieb Behindertenhilfe Interdisziplinäre Frühförder- und Frühberatungsstelle, Leipzig

"I myself have used BABY EYE books on a severely multiple-disabled child and have been able to observe good visual attention. The books are attractively designed and the colors, strong contrasts and simple shapes definitely make sense for visually impaired infants or children with multiple disabilities." - Ute Hahn - Frühförderin, Frühförderung LVR-Karl-Tietenberg-Schule, Düsseldorf
