Baby's First Book Blocks & Giveaway

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

My new baby is coming in four weeks (hopefully!) and I am always on the lookout for fun, new toys and books for my new baby! When I saw Baby's First Book Blocks, I loved the mix between books and blocks and the education it provides!

Combining books and blocks, Baby's First Book Blocks is a set of mini board books designed to help babies develop visual acuity and encourage burgeoning motor skills.

The popular press often perpetuates the myth that newborn babies can't really see in color--but current research shows that by just 2 months of age, babies can not only see color, but they can even distinguish between subtly different shades. What is important to know is that all babies can develop visual acuity by looking at images. Parents can stimulate babies' visual development by spending just a few minutes a day with baby looking at these colorful books/blocks. Featuring bold colors, diverse shapes, and intricate patterns, these compact little books offer a prime opportunity to interact with even the youngest babies.

As babies grow and begin to develop basic motor skills, these sturdy little books continue to provide plenty of opportunities for educational play-grasping, stacking, sorting, and turning pages.

Just a few minutes a day of looking at Baby's First Book Blocks will help babies develop these important skills. These valuable board books also provide a great opportunity for parents and caregivers to interact with their infants.

Four little block-shaped mini books, each measuring 2-3/8 x 2-3/8 inches, comprise this adorable set:

Book 1: Black and White—simple but interesting shapes moving into more complex shapes and patterns

Book 2: Red, Blue, and Yellow—introduces primary colors and slightly more complex shapes, moving into real patterns with multiple colors

Book 3: Color and Pattern—secondary colors and more complex patterns

Book 4: Visual Excitement—subtle shades and complicated patterns

Instructions on the box explain how to use the books to help your baby’s visual development.
