++ Application to provide eye training and brain development exercise for newborn babies ++
“Babies First Eye Focus Ⅱ” (for babies between 6 and 12 months)
This educational app is designed to help babies of age 6 - 12 months develop their eye and brain as well as emotional stability.
Newborn babies see the world around them only in black and white before they become 3 to 4 month old when they can distinguish between light and dark. Babies of 6 to 12 months old start their eye contacts with their mothers, and this program can facilitate those babies’ eye development by letting them exercise to focus on eyes of people and animals featured in each page of the program.
All figures in each page, therefore, are typified by the bold contrast of colors to help color-sensitive babies easily distinguish colors, adjust their focus, and even promote their brain activities through visual stimuli.
Of other distinguishing features of this app is the classic background music to be played while babies watch the screen. Parents can select the music, and also record their voice and messages for each page so that babies can feel their presence hearing their voice even when babies are watching the screen all by themselves, which will enhance baby’s emotional stability.

++ How to use the book of “Babies First Eye Focus Ⅱ” ++
※ It is important to place appropriate distance between baby’s and screen.
Babies of 6 to 12 months old can only focus 7 to 8 inches from their face.
※ Make sure you place the screen at baby’s eye level, and show them the images in each page. Give them enough time to look into the images before moving on to the next page.
※ It is advised that parents hold the babies in their arms when showing them the images of the screen. Body-contact between parent and baby will facilitate the bond between them, and assist baby’s emotional stability.
※ Repeatedly cover and uncover the figure and eye of animals shown in the screen with your finger. This will catch the attention of babies and enhance their visual concentration.
※ It is highly recommended that parents record their voice for each page of the book.
Babies can feel their presence hearing their voices even when they are watching the screens all by themselves, which will assist baby’s emotional stability.
