It's no surprise. Babies love them.

Based on research, babies respond best to high contrasts, engaging textures, and curious sounds. Wimmer Ferguson Mind-Shapes have best first play in mind!

Tactile: Woven canvas, slippery satin, ridged corduroy, lush fleece

Visual: High impact black outlines on white; brilliant primary colors

Auditory: Pyramid rings, Ball crinkles, Cube rattles

Beyond initial sensory play, children learn a lot from Mind-Shapes. An introduction to naming objects, color names, basic shapes, patterns, and first attempts to throw a ball come into play.

Meaningful first play comes from sensory stimulation in simple formats. Check the reviews below and you'll see. Give one to a baby and they start studying.

    Good for babies when they're ready to grasp things
    Posted 5/27/2014 by Rebecca C

    The set of toys is very well-made, and is high-quality. My five-month-old likes to gaze at it and try to grasp for it. In about a month she'll be able to grasp and hold onto it by herself so for now we mostly use it to interact with her ourselves or to place with her on her mat to look at it and try to reach at.

    5 month old loves them!
    Posted 3/17/2014 by Cynthia Evans

    Our daughter loves these toys. She cannot quite pick them up yet but she enjoys pushing them around. She started sitting up a few weeks ago and these are great for setting in her lap where she can try to manipulate them.

    Review for Wimmer Ferguson Mind-Shapes
    Posted 11/25/2012 by Erica Dobson

    We use these to help with "tummy time". Placed in front of our son they work as incentive to reach out and keep his head up... He still seems to be attracted to bold black and white patterns and enjoys the four sided (triangle) shaped toy the most. I think he prefers that one because it is the easiest one for him to hold (and therefor put in his mouth!). It is more an exploration toy as there isn't much challenge to them, but they do interest him and keep him occupied.

    Product review of Wimmer Ferguson Mind-Shapes
    Posted 12/4/2011 by Marie Amanda

    The child hasn't used this yet. It is a Christmas gift. He does have similar graphics on another toy, which he enjoys. I like the different shaped items and high contrast graphics.
