Did you know that babies develop in so many ways during their first five years that it dwarfs everything they learn over the rest of their lives? Neither did Surya (a graphic designer with a background in Chemistry, Botany and Zoology) and Dave, a teacher. When their son was born they studied everything they could about babies’ development.
Did you know that:
• newborns can only see as far as 12 to 15 inches away (around the length of your forearm and hand)
• they are most taken with their parents’ faces
• they are drawn to simple but repeating geometric shapes in black and white
• at around 6 months of age, they begin to recognize animal forms, later calling them by name
Fascinated by the idea helping their babies development, they created their own planet of black & white animals, which were designed to entertain and educate, taking into account each stage of development.
