I bought this for my nephew - unfortunately it was put away in a box and forgotten about! A year later, my week old baby loves it!! She is now almost 7 weeks old and we can now tell what shapes she likes and dislikes! It's great to provoke and recognise a reaction in such a young baby - it has strenghtened the bond as we can play and read together. Well worthwhile!

I bought this along with Faces (Babys very first book) after reading reviews on amazon, because I wanted to find something that would interest my very young baby. Well these books are great. Baby absolutely loved them, especially book 3 with all the faces. So simple, but he absolutely loved it and it was so funny to watch all his little expressions and cooing noises as he stared at the pictures. This is a must for young babies and I have recommended it to all my friends!

After receiving this gift from a friend, I was skeptical about my 2 week old focusing on anything, let alone pictures in a book. Well, I was amazed!!! My 2 week old spent a few minutes staring at the images. I then cut the book up and placed the pictures strategically around the house, for tummy time, next to the changing mat and in the hood of the pram. The smiley faces accompanied us everywhere we went in the pram and my baby became so familiar with the faces he would squeal and laugh out loud whilst spending a long time staring at them. I have since bought the set of books as a gift for various friends and would highly recommend.

I bought this book for my new born baby. He's now 9 weeks and for the last 3 weeks has been enjoying book 3 within this pack of 4. He particularly likes the first 4 pages of book 3. Consisting of 2 different happy faces which for some reason makes my baby chuckle. Followed by 2 pages where the faces on each page are shown sticking out their tongue. My baby copies this, by sticking out his tongue also. The other pages in the book, e.g. faces with glasses and moustache seem a little to complex for him. Books 1-2 within the pack create mild interest and I haven't as yet tried book 4. As the item is fairly cheap, book 3 alone and the response it has produced is worth the purchase.

I bought this for the books but the Mobile was by far the best!

It looks a bit flimsy but I set it up *Tied it to a coat hanger* and used it all around the house (Hanging it on lightshades), especially when the baby had colicy moments, I'd spend the witching hours of the evening spinning it and baby just stared at it - worked till he was 6 months old!

I have bought one for every new mum I know and they have all said it is the daddy! I'm just about to buy one now for my cousin!

Very young babies have limited resolution vision, can see only a short distance, find it hard to focus and can not perceive colours. The bold, simple black and white shapes in book one catch even a very young babies attention and are a brilliant way to interact with a new baby once the initial excitement of having them home has worn off and they have passed the initial 3-4 day sleeping period but do not yet "do much".

You won't regret this purchase for that period and it will become your baby's first favourite book and be the source of some of your first interactions and development points (e.g. head tracking an image).

Books 2-4 start to introduce more involved images, pair of images with their photographic negatives, faces and simple renderings of real world objects such as beach balls but to be honest we've not used these as much preferring to get our son to interact with us and the real world, mobiles etc...worth the asking price just for the first book though and some of our friends have found the other books more useful.

I buy this for all my friends with new babies, it's so much fun seeing how much tiny babies are taking in and learning even in the first few weeks and months. I thoroughly recommend this.

What a great idea these are! Such good value for money - I'd pay at least double the price for the entertainment they give.

I brought these for my son when he was 6/7 weeks old. I wanted to start showing him images and help his development - these are perfect for that purpose. They are the best books we have found to hold his attention, and he really enjoys them. We move the images around once his attention is caught and we can really notice his development in tracking and focusing. It has been lovely to see him interact with them more and more.

A friend highly recommended them to me and I would thoroughly recommend them onwards.

Great first books for your baby. They really do study them and have a favourite image. Each four books progress with age. A must for your baby!
