It happens all the time. Mom, dad, grandma, friend or even just a carpool acquaintance comes by to select a gift. They're usually stumped, not for all the same reasons, but at some point everyone wants a little guidance.
Over the next few weeks we'll break it down for you and answer the question we love to hear everyday: What's a great fit for a __ year old? This week we'll focus on a 1 year old.
Here are our top 5 gift suggestions:
5. Puppy Tails Book
Now that they're ready to dive in and discover the world around them, give them a gift that will allow them to explore textures, sounds and animals. Each puppy tail is a different textures, and when rubbed will make a different sound. If puppy's won't work there's also Kitty Tails and Pet Tails to keep them entertained and learning!
4. Zoo Plates and Bowls
They think they're ready to be just like the big kids, so let them give it a go with Skip Hop Zoo Plates and bowls. The adorable animals will keep their interest even if the meal doesn't!
They're pulling up on furniture and maybe taking an awkward step or two, but you know that it's just a matter of time before they're running all over the place on their 2 wobbly legs! Outfit them in a comfy, supportive pair of shoes that will foster proper foot development and great style.
Beginner chunky puzzles are perfect for little hands. The basic shapes and colors help them focus and complete each puzzle.
1. The Tickle Monster Kit
The Tickle Monster Kit is our all-time favorite! Either you or the birthday girl/boy can put on the tickle gloves and tickle along with the Tickle Monster in the story. He has just landed on planet Earth...and he's out to tickle everyone just like they do on Planet Tickle!
Hopefully this helps to narrow down your choices, or gives you a good jumping off point to get out there and get your shopping done!
One year old's not what you're looking for? Don't worry, over the next few weeks we'll cover some more top birthday gifts!
