The first birthday of a child is a big deal for a parent. There are so many decisions to be made such as the amount of people to be invited, the type of food to be served, and the place to have the party at, etc. When I finally made all those decisions and planed a big party another issue came up. Some people began to ask me: what would I like them to give F for her first birthday party? They said could you give us some ideas? They know I like to choose carefully what kind of toys she plays with. Then I started looking for toys that I knew she would like to play with, that were durable, pretty and challenging for her.
I didn’t want to dictate people what to give F for her birthday but I did want to guide them so they had an idea of what she usually plays with.
An important note: Many of links that I used for this post are from Amazon because it was easy for me to find a link and a picture. I noticed that some toys are more expensive at amazon. I told people to look for them at their different local toy stores and they were cheaper.
Here are some toys that I came up with:
Plan toy solid drum (by hape)
Dancing butterflies push and pull (by hape)
Magnetic blocks (Tegu)
Bowling set (Growing Up Wild)
Leaves puzzle (Manzanita Kids)
Nesting doll puzzle (Manzanita Kids)
I love this truck because she can place items on the bed of the pick up track
She has these toys and I believe they are great for one year olds.
Toddler size Apron
Balls are always fun, so find one that is not too big or hard. A friend got me one that lights up and F absolutely loves it.
