First Birthday Gifts are special and rightly so- your baby is now entering the realm of counting years! Yay!!!!
As your kid enters toddler-hood, you need to look at toys that encourage them to move, play and learn as an added advantage. The idea is to foster holistic growth with a balanced focus on speaking, walking, laughing and engaging in active learning activities that will help develop their motor skills.
While children are fiercely individual- more than us adults who are willing to define us by religion or political leanings – there are a few classic and innovative first birthday gifts that kids this age find simply irresistible. Toys like dolls and actions figures that inspire imaginative play, ride-on toys to help them with developing gross motor skills, and even action and reaction toys that displays and teaches them that doing something may bring unexpected results.
Well, the competitive world sure finds a way to prepare their future leaders from quite an early age these days :)!
So here is our own small little stash of first birthday gifts for one year olds:
