Sensory Development Features

Oversized Mirror

The extra-large mirror is perfect for developing vision in babies and helping stimulate both engagement and brain development as your baby grows.

Visual & Tactile

Our Baby Mirror provides both visual & tactile stimulation, encouraging eye-hand coordination, overall motor ability, self-awareness, and object persistence.


A mirror on one side and black-and-white raised images on the other helps maintain curiosity and interest, supporting the cognitive process of "object permanence".

Raised Images

High contrast black-and-white raised images attract the attention of new babies whose vision is still evolving, making this tactile toy perfect for brain development.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose the Nurture Smartᵀᴹ baby mirror?

The Nurture Smartᵀᴹ portable baby mirror was doctor-designed in collaboration with hospital Child Life Specialists. Our baby mirror can be a crib mirror, bassinet mirror, play-yard mirror or floor mirror. The large size and black-and-white raised graphics provide an exceptional developmental and sensory toy experience for a baby and the attachment loops at the top allow you to secure it in an upright position for easy viewing.

Why is a baby mirror important?

Nothing is more enticing to babies than the human face. Babies love to look at faces and can be mesmerized by their own. Mirror images help your baby learn how to focus his or her eyes, follow images, learn new words and explore the wonderful things a face can do. Enjoying one’s own blinking, smiling image in a mirror is an important social and emotional milestone that babies tend to achieve during the first year. By gazing at themselves and their loved ones in a mirror, a baby can learn to identify familiar faces, track movements and even develop their tiny muscles as they reach and roll toward their reflection. And, if you talk to your baby while showing parts of your face in front of the mirror, you’ll help boost their language skills.

Can a baby mirror help with tummy time?

The fascination babies have with their mirror reflection can be a strong motivator for tummy time duration and other muscle-building exercises. Nurture Smart’s large baby mirror propped against a wall or pillow can motivate tummy time, sit time duration and physical activity that will help build the muscles and coordination necessary for crawling and walking.

What other features does the Nurture Smartᵀᴹ baby mirror offer?

This baby mirror includes bold black and white graphics both around the mirror and on the back. Young babies have difficulty distinguishing color and are much more attracted to black-and-white images. Our graphic designs around the mirror add to the visual attraction of the mirror and our artist-designed graphics on the reverse side of the mirror provide an interesting visual alternative for a baby to focus on. These designs are all raised to provide both added visual stimulation and tactile stimulation rewarding the baby when they touch the mirror.

What is the appropriate age range for using the Nurture Smartᵀᴹ baby mirror?

Our baby mirror is designed for babies 0 – 10 months old. However, after this time the decorative baby mirror can be hung on a wall in the baby's room.

Why do pediatric hospitals love our baby mirror?

Our baby mirror is the only baby mirror designed to meet the rigorous safety and child development standards required by hospitals. These same baby mirror features are equally important when your baby goes home. Hospitals do not allow cloth parts that could create a choking hazard or strings that could entangle a baby or fabric that can harbor bacteria and viruses. The Nurture Smartᵀᴹ baby mirror is easily cleaned and disinfected, helping to prevent flu, RSV and other germs from transferring to your baby, and the exceptional developmental features are doctor-designed.

This is a must have for all new babies. I bought it for my grandson to have at my house. We went to visit him and he enjoyed it so much, I left it at his house.

Perfect for newborn and beyond!

Introduced this to our newborn right away and he really took to it! He’s now 3 months old and it’s still a core part of our mat time. I love that you can secure the rings around the legs of an activity gym and alternate between the mirror and image sides. For me it’s easier to use and clean than high contrast cards I’ve seen elsewhere so I’m really happy to have this. The size also really works well because the images and mirror are still in his line of sight as he learns to lift his head up higher in tummy time.

Visual and Tactile Baby Mirror

It was the perfect gift for my neighbor's baby. He is fascinated by his reflection, and loves touching the tactile letters, numbers, and shapes. The quality of the mirror is top notch and I would highly recommend this product to anyone.
