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.

What do other Turkish baby blankets look like – is this a typical example?

No. This is not a typical Turkish baby blanket. I am Turkish and can definitely say this piece does not represent Anatolian blankets.
