What to buy a 1 year old for their birthday

Feb 20, 2020Uncategorized

Choosing birthday presents can be challenging, particularly when purchasing for a one-year-old, as you may have concerns about suitability and safety. Here are a few suggestions!

Zebra baby balance bike

This is around the time babies like to explore, but they may need support to get around. A balance bike can do just that, supporting babies and toddlers to move at their own pace. This bike gets its name because of its zebra pattern; the black and white design is easy to notice and will capture your child’s attention! With a recommended age of 1-2 years, it’s the perfect present for a first birthday.

The assembly is minimal, and the safety wheels ensure that no little fingers or toes get caught up, meaning no fuss or safety worries for you and hours of exploring for your baby.

Wooden toys

Wooden toys are not only appealing to look at, but they feel nice to the touch and help with your child’s sensory development. Wooden toys offer hours of imaginative fun – our Musical Activity Centre enables your one-year-old to exercise their nervous system by pushing around the wooden beads and blocks, whilst their sense of hearing will also be stimulated as the music begins to play! This toy is a must-have gift.
