Celebrating Christmas with a one year old can be a true delight! It’s all about torn wrapping paper, belly laughs, and sheer excitement. If you’re hoping to find that special gift that’s – dare I say it – more fun to play with then the box it came in, check out our ideas;
The B.Toys ElemenoSqueeze is one of my ultimate faves! These squishy blocks are perfect for stacking, chewing or squeezing! These versatile blocks come in a set of 26 and cost $41.99. Their bright colours and prominent letters make for hours of educational fun- both in and out of the bath tub.
In keeping with our educational theme, you should try this Hape Counting Stacker. Not only can you practice numbers, but this little toy helps you work on dexterity. Stacking can be a fine art, indeed! At $9.99 it’s also a great deal.
Got a little mover and shaker on your hands? Check out the Janod Crazy Rocky pull-along puppy! Complete with Wagging tail, Rocky is a retro-inspired wooden toy that will provide hours of fun. He’s $49.99 and available at our Brick & Mortar stores.
Meal time becomes a treat with the adorable Zoo Plates from Skip Hop. Available in 11 different animals, these divided plates are only $7.49. Buy the coordinating cups, utensils, bibs and bowls for the little one that has a favourite animal- I personally love the Owl.
When the meals are eaten, and the toys put away, snuggle your little one up in cozy sleep sacks from Grobag! These nap bags come in different weights for different temperatures, so make sure you coordinate with the temperature in your nursery- The 2.5 tog is perfect for long winter naps. They vary in price from $49.99 to $64.99, depending on age range.
Lay your children to sleep under the beautiful night sky with the Cloud B Twilight Turtle. The gentle light projects real constellations onto the ceiling- providing a point of interest for older kids and a soothing glow for younger. A sure-fire hit, this little fella has been one of our most popular gifts for years! He’s $44.99 and available both in store and online.
