I read somewhere that babies up to two months struggle to recognize colors. Another fact is that babies prefer watching faces above all – Since it was a bit hard to find a proper carousel that would be both black and white, and have front faces “looking” down I’ve decided to do my own. My beloved helped me with that – the materials were just old T-shirts. A little fun project to do in your spare time – I liked it even more since my machine sawing skills were getting bit rusty recently.
As for attaching the “faces” I used regular wooden black hanger, and a fishing rod 🙂 The final product is a bit funny, but my daughter seems to like it very much. whenever the faces are there she just can’t stop looking at them.
