Baby blanket

Anatolian women value the importance of visual stimulation in infant development, and have so for centuries. The bright colours and simple shapes embroidered onto these wool blankets attract babies’ attention when they are wrapped in them, just as toys occupy babies in their strollers or cribs today.

I had a baby blanket that was plain white, and covered in some sort of small design; I don't remember what it was, exactly. Had mine had tassels down the side, I likely wouldn't be typing this, as I would have chewed on it and choked.
