Toys for 1 Year Old
A fabulous range of wooden baby toys, soft toys and natural baby toys. Perfect as baby reaches their first birthday. Fill your toy box with wonderful developmental toys that will support the huge strides they are making physically and mentally at this incredible age.
Walkers and push along toys really come into their own as babies go from rolling and crawling to walking and running. Classic baby toys, walkers are great for helping your little one with their first steps. Choose the right one and they will be loved for years. These make fantastic presents for one year olds, as they are just learning to walk, s the walker gives them the extra care and balance they may need.
Walkers for One Year Old's
The classic Tidlo and Pintoy baby walkers with blocks are great for carrying toys around the room, and the blocks will provide endless entertainment as towers are built purely for the joy of knocking them down. As toddlers grow and develop these might become a dolls pram or builders trolley to carry tools from place to place. One year olds will love these as they often come with additional toys on the front and lots of extra activities. Getting walking is a big step for a 1 year baby, and these toys are the ideal toys to help them with that major development.
The Tidlo Activity Walker is great for babies who are not yet walking as there are loads of activities to explore while sitting. And once they are on their feet there's a great little self at the back for carrying a favourite soft toy with them on their adventures.
Alternatively, the Indigo Jamm ride on bus is a great walker that doubles as a ride on for toddlers. A great alternative to buying a walker now and a ride on toy later when they've mastered the art of moving around on their own.
Push along toys for a one year old
Push and pull toys are great for crawling babies to push around and little walkers love to drag something behind them, especially if it makes a great noise as it travels.
We love the gorgeous Plan Toys dino cars. Chunky and smooth these natural wooden toys are great for little hands and will inspire all sorts of dinosaur games. And the little wheelie fox and penguin are great for little animal lovers.
The Djeco pull along toys are simply stunning. Their team of artists and designers focus just as much on the beauty as they do the practicality of the toy, giving you beautiful patterns and vibrant colours that are designed to inspire and excite and even those these are for a 1 year baby, they are simply perfect.
Puzzles and Sorting Toys for 1 year olds
There are some great puzzles and sorting games with chunky pieces that are perfect for this age. Simple puzzles will hone their fine motor skills, shape and colour recognition, and provide hours of fun as they sort the shapes and fit the pieces together.
We stock a great range including vehicles and animals, touch and feel puzzles and shape sorters. We particularly love the Sevi sorting jeep which offers so much play potential. The Djeco puzzles which are all absolutely gorgeous and the plan toys marine puzzle. All of which are a bit different from the norm.
Building and Stacking Toys for 1 year old's
Building blocks and stacking toys offer so much potential for open-ended play and will be enjoyed for years in different ways.
The stacking block sets are perfect for developing fine and gross motor skills as you build towers for the sheer joy of knocking them down again. As children get older they are great for teaching numbers, colours and animals.
Grimms make a stunning range of building and stacking toys including the iconic rainbow tunnels, stunning water, earth and fire elements, and a huge range of building blocks in every shape and colour imaginable. Start a collection now that will be loved and played with for generations in so many imaginative and creative ways.
Handcrafted from sustainably sourced hardwood and painted with non-toxic water based stains these are truly beautiful handmade wooden toys that you'll end up loving as much as your children. Add a set of Grimm's friends and suddenly your play blocks become houses, woodland hideouts, caves and castles for these delightfully tactile peg people to inhabit and explore.
Making Music Baby Toys
Toddlers love making music and by this age, there are so many great musical instruments to choose from it would seem a shame not to encourage this love. Music encourages sensory development, children learn patterns and rhythm and build coordination and also make great toys!
There are drums to bang, tambourines and maracas to shake and great looking xylophones to tap out a tune on. You'll be starting a toddler band before you know it. Dance around the room with them and watch how they try to copy your moves.
Soft toys and dolls for 1 year old
Soft toys and dolls are wonderful at any age. We have a great range of soft toys including puppets for storytelling, soft toys for comfort and role play and the delightful Rubens Barn dolls.
Great for encouraging imaginative play, building vocabulary and developing social skills there are so many reasons your children should be playing these classic baby toys as well as traditional wooden toys.
And of course, don't forget the Wobbel. Suitable from birth with the right supervision this is a great toy for toddlers.
1 year baby toys
We highly recommend the Indigo Jamm range of toys, many are specifically made for a one year old, designed to last and be chunky and take a bashing or two!
Parents often panic when it comes to cleaning their childrens toys and really there is no reason to. If they are wood, just clean gently with a damp cloth. For plush toys, check the washing instructions, many can be put straight into the machine. Many plastic toys can be put in the dishwasher as well, again check with each manufacturer and their recommendations.
Empathy Dolls for Babies
Our Rubens dolls make great gifts for one year olds for several reasons. Rubens dolls often help babies sleep better. The reasons are the weight of the babies, and the fact they retain warmth make babies think someone is next to the bed, snuggling up to them! This helps them learn to self soothe and get back to sleep, and sleep longer!
