Toys for newborns? Cute or efficient?

So​ I've read in many places that newborns only see starkly contrasting colors as their eyes develop- predominantly black, white, and red.

Did you buy your babies pastels and bright colors or did you opt for the more cutesie 'baby' versions in pastels and brights or go with more... I can't think of the word... efficient? functional?... Still can't find the right word for it. The black/white/red toys?

If you've had more than one kid and did it different ways, did you notice a developmental difference?
