Gift Ideas for a 1 Year Old feat. Fisher Price

Fisher Price, Gift Ideas, baby toys

With Taylor's 1st Birthday coming up, it was time to start thinking about what gifts we would buy him. 

We LOVE Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages toys. 

Smart Stages technology gives you the option to change the level of play and learning content, by selecting the stage best for your child. Each stage includes a wide variety of developmentally appropriate songs, sounds and phrases.

Level 1 [aimed at 12mths+] - Explore:
First words and sounds spark baby's curiosity.

Level 2 [aimed at 18mths+] - Encourage:
Prompt baby through questions and simple directions.

Level 3 [aimed at 24mths+] - Pretend:
Imaginative fun and early role play.

The lovely people at Fisher Price sent us the Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Scooter* (£32.99) and the Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Toolbox* (£19.99).
We also bought him the Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Chair, which is fantastic.

This cute Baby Ride On is a perfect first ride on, with it's bright colourful features, the perfect size for 12 month+ olds to attempt to climb on themselves and the interactive buttons. Little ones can learn to move themselves along independently, and be rewarded by fun songs, phrases and sound effects. It has a little horn button 'Beeep Beeep!!' and buttons to teach colours, shapes and numbers.

This was one of the first things Taylor went for when he came into the lounge on his birthday, and he absolutely adores it. He has me pushing him around on it constantly [my knees have the bruises to confirm this!! ;)]

How adorable is this Toy Toolbox? Baby can hammer away at the colourful shape pegs and be rewarded with fun songs, phrases and sounds. I love educational toys like this, where he is learning colours, shapes, numbers and opposites all while he's having lots of fun.

Taylor loves grabbing the hammer and hitting the pegs, then passing the hammer over for us to have a go. [of course not while you're trying to get a photo of him doing it!! ;)]

I'm a huge fan of these toys as they will grow with him as he gets a little older and will continue to teach him new things as he develops. 

What toys do you recommend for a 1 year old?
