The Ultimate Kids Gift Ideas - Best Gifts for a 1 Year Old

We have a new series with amazing Gift Ideas for Kids.  Great for Christmas or Birthday Presents - or just because!

This collection of gift ideas will keep kids busy, developing and having fun! 

It is such an amazing age. So much going on. They are mobile, they have access to everything and they want to touch, feel and explore everything. As soon as they can walk they will run! They will want to be feeding themselves and drinking by themselves. Basically, everything is explorable and they are going to start getting a bit miffed if they cant do what they want to do! They will love more physical activities at this stage.  Getting into the sand pit, playing with balls, tactile books that they can get into on their own.  The sand pit can do no wrong (until someone throws sand in their eyes)!   Finding more interactive play opps and getting outside with them will satisfy their never-ending thirst for exploration. Swings, things they can climb. Nothing is off limits as they get older. They will be learning new words all the time and start identifying everyday things like toys they love, objects around the house and body parts. Water play and bubbles are universally loved. They will get frustrated a lot – you wont always understand what they want, and you wont always see eye to about things.  But don’t worry – you’ll know when they are displeased with your behaviour!

Remember that play is a really important part of your child’s life and builds the foundation for not only their physical development but also emotional and social development.  Independent play time is really valuable and important to build into your child’s day.  And it's important for you too!
