First birthday present ideas?

Postby clothmama » Sun Oct 18, 2015 9:00 am

I'm starting to think about what to get him so I have time to order online, a bit gutted that it is already that time, it has gone way way too fast for my liking! I am not sure what to get. Would rather wooden things than plastic. He isn't quite walking yet but is standing alone and cruising so I guess he'll be nearly there by the time he turns 1!

We hardly have anything for him so all ideas are welcome!

A wooden pram or buggy, doubles as a walkee but lasts longer to put babies/teddies in. A garage for car runs...

First puzzel (djeco makes nice ones)
Wooden blocks
Duplo (I like the new forest animals :)) http://www.ikea.com/nl/nl/images/produc ... 496_S4.JPG
My girl (just 2y) likes here balance bike that can be changed from 3 wheels to 2 wheels. It's a chillafish bunzi. She has been using it since she was about 1,4y.
Shape sorting box.
Musical instrument. (Not ready to play but she loves to use an ocarina, whe have a plastic one from ocarina.co.uk and with all the holes open it's one of the notes and a nice sound)
A marble run , haba 8050 or duplo 9076 (we have duplo and bought some second hand tubes and balls).

Wheelie bug looks fun :)

Just trying to think of things we bought ours at 1....i know we had duplo lego, what about one of those wooden carts with wooden blocks in so he can push it when hes walking.
Something like this...

A shopping trolley with wooden food?

Some great ideas, thanks girls! I'll have a look at them all. I'd been thinking about a wheely bug but wasn't sure if they were worth it! I tried him on a mini pig one the other day and he was terrified of it - I think he though it was a real animal!
