Newborn spend their most of the time sleeping and when they are awake all they do is to observe their surroundings.
Hence, their immediate tool of attraction is toys when they are awake; here are my picks which I discovered in 6 months with my baby.
http://cosmetic-jar.com/50ml-deodorant-glass-roll-on-bottle/ Rattle: rattle is the best option for a newborn as they are immediately attracted by the sound or light of it.
Just lay down all in front of a baby and let him/her figure out the difference between each of them and eventually one will become their favourite.

http://nepa.nl/home/?l=de Teethers: once baby starts to explore things with hands which are around 3 months they will start putting each and everything straight into their mouth.
Buy teethers which are easy to grab, it helps baby to soothe their gums.
Babies love to watch fan in a same way cot mobile will work and engage them to watch moving toys and listening to soft music.
Soft books or board book:
Reading encourages their vocabulary. look for the touch and feel book which is easily available online and read it aloud to them.
