Wow, my baby is almost one! Can you believe that? I really can't. I think the time has gone more quickly with my second baby, than it did with the first.
I've been thinking about first birthday baby gifts (it's just a couple of weeks away so I should get organised). After a few years working at Global Baby, and as a mum of two, I think I know one year old's pretty well! Here's a list of things that I think the one year old you know will love.
A totally fun toy for young children, it can be used for so many types of creative play. The shopping trolley provides a bit of stability for babies who are learning to walk, or new at walking, and it's a nice alternative to a pram. Looks good too!
Love the simple, hand made look of this swing! It can be used inside and out, and if there's one thing I noticed at the playground yesterday, one year olds love swinging. Made in NZ too.
It is just the cutest thing when toddlers start playing with their dolls, cuddling them, and putting them to bed.
The Multicolored Tent from the French toy makers Djeco sure does brighten up the room! I've noticed that Remi loves playing in the one that we have in the shop window at Global Baby.
This pretty wooden pram is a dream, right?
Children love playing on this rug, and as a bonus it looks beautiful in your home!
We already have this toy at home and it's a hit with our four year old, and the baby, they play with it every day.
This cool wooden puzzle makes animal noises when you lift off the pieces!
The London Bus is a popular toy with parents who have lived in the UK. It's a substantial size, and is so detailed, we're in love with it too.
Such a cool big truck that comes fully assembled in a satisfyingly substantially sized box.
Available in two sizes, and four ethnicities, these dolls are pretty cute! For my baby I think I would get the Hispanic doll, she's like the Cliff Curtis of dolls, she could be from almost anywhere in the world.
I'm totally in love with the vintage shape of this wooden pram!
Walkers are a popular gift for one year olds who are just mastering the skill. This one is cool because the basket is filled with wooden blocks.
So many ideas! Happy birthday baby!!
