What do you buy for first birthdays? – Almost anything, because the birthday boy or girl won’t mind much and is just as likely to play with the box as the gift. So, you could buy bright and colourful toys they will like now, toys they will grow into or heirloom style toys for their future.
Safety is an issue with toys for one-year olds – avoid toys with parts that are small enough to swallow or with removable parts that are sharp or could be swallowed, check paint is non-toxic, avoid long cords. Everything should be unbreakable and safe for them to put in their mouths.
One year-olds are on the move, so toys they can push or pull around are popular. You could also buy toys that will help develop their dexterity and coordination. One year olds like toys that are colourful or squeak.
