Toy Ideas for a One Year Old

One year olds are ready to progress from soft baby toys and get into some serious playing! find some must-have toy ideas for a one year old that will be played with for years to come.

Kitchen - One year olds are just at the age where they can be engaged in all the fun a play-kitchen has to offer. They enjoy opening and closing doors and drawers, and playing with various kitchen utensils and gadgets. A full play-kitchen is available but Fisher-Price also makes a very sturdy and fun version in their Laugh and Learn series. (see below)

Puzzles - One year olds are just beginning to be able to work on a puzzle on their own. Depending on the degree of difficulty, many puzzles will be entertaining for little ones. Many of the sturdy wooden puzzles with pegs on each piece, and a matching picture on the puzzle board, will work well for these little one year olds. Melissa and Doug make excellent puzzles for toddlers.

Push Around Buggy by Step 2 - Children love being pushed around in this toy, but it's also a parent back-saver. No bending over to push around a little ride on car, this push buggy has a long handle for easy transporting! The newer versions even have "quiet ride" wheels.

Personalized CD - Children love hearing their own name in a song and many companies make excellent personalized music CDs for children. One website, in particular, that sells personalized music is www.kidmusic.com. The You Are My Friend CD has fun songs for one year olds and also songs that he or she will enjoy as years go by.

Cozy Coupe - The Little TykesCozy Coupe is a staple at the houses of many young children. You've seen it driving through neighborhoods, I'm sure. The red and yellow pedal car is a popular one among children. For one year olds, they will begin enjoying it by pushing it around from the outside. As they develop they will enjoy climbing inside and pedaling themselves around. This particular toy is somewhat old for a one year old in terms of development, but by the time they are 18 months to 2 years they'll be cruising around. These cars can also be used indoors depending on your space, giving your child a good rainy day activity!

Ride on cars - Toys that can be pushed or ridden are always good for a one year old. Toys that can do both are even better. Many ride on cars or trucks can be converted into a push toy. This is a great toy for a one year old, because he or she can start by pushing the car around and then progress to being able to ride on it.

Books with flaps - Board books that have sturdy lift-the-flap flaps are an excellent toy for a one year old. Fisher-Price has an accompanying book to their Little People farm that has very sturdy, yet still engaging, flaps to be lifted on each page. Unfortunately, many flimsier or fancier lift-the-flap, or pop-up books aren't a great match for a one year old. If your one year old is anything like mine, those pages wouldn't last too long before being torn. So look for flaps that are fun and sturdy!

Shopping cart - This toy needs little explanation as to why it is so fun or why it is a must-have. Any small version of a shopping cart will be a sure hit with a one year old. Sometimes it's hard to find groceries to fill the cart that do not contain small pieces. However, you can always remove the small parts from the bag of goodies and add it back in when your child leaves the "putting everything in the mouth phase."

Tub toys - Your one year old may be in need of some more "grown up" tub toys. He or she may enjoy bathtub squirting toys, watering cans, stacking cups and other boats and floats. A bubble machine is also a good bath-time toy.

Fisher-Price Little People toys - Fisher-Price makes a line of Little People toys that your one year old will likely enjoy for years to come. Any of the vehicles or structures will likely be a good match for a one year old, as well as any of the accompanying people and animals.

Fisher-Price Laugh amp; Learn toys (pony, kitchen, tool bench, etc) - We have owned many of the Fisher-PriceLaugh and Learn toys and have found them to be wildly popular with all ages of toddlers. They tend to be brightly colored and engaging and they play fun music and sounds. You can't go wrong with any of the toys in this line.
