Smart Babies!

By Meera Dolasia on November 26, 2007

Next time you snatch a toy from your baby brother's or sister's hand be careful.  They can tell the difference between good and bad!

In this amazing experiment, scientists showed two videos to six month old babies; one with a "mean" square shape and the other with a "friendly" triangle shape.  When asked to chose between the two, all the babies went for the friendly triangle, leading scientists to believe that babies at a very young age seem to realize the difference between good and bad.  Quite fascinating!
