I am exploring the best toys for 1 year olds, for Indy's birthday coming in May. I have found a couple of articles with toy suggestions, like this one from My Kid Needs That and this one from Parents Magazine. His interests are so different from Lemon's, and he is so bored with all of her baby toys that we saved for him, ha!
Indy's favorite is still playing with tags, or anything that has hanging parts/pieces. He explores everything with his little index finger sticking out, it's the cutest thing! We also just bought him his first "car," a musical fire truck, it's so cute how much he loves it. He also just learned to army crawl, really fast, so he likes to get into everything; something Lemon never did. I watched him touch a plug about 10 times the other day, he knocked over the dog's water dish (all over himself) and got stuck in the crack of the bed (awake) while just playing around. Boys! I feel like I need to start bolting everything to the wall, just in case. Ugh.
This Squeeze n' Squeak lion, upper left, can be found here.
We love B Toys!
Anything with parts is fun for him, not for me to clean up!
Toys for teething are great for a 1 year old, and the Nuby Nana Nubs is one of Indy's favorites! (Nuby also makes a similar product that is available here.) Anything with bristles to use as a gum massager is perfect for him, he'll drool and chew on it for hours.
We also love this Blooming Bath flower that you use to bathe your kiddos in the sink. It's so comfy and fluffy, he loves it! (Not a toy but a great gift none-the-less.)
Bath toys are also a favorite at our house, for both Indy and Lemon:
This yellow toy submarine is available here.
Anything that plays music, pops up or that he can put in his mouth, he is definitely entertained by:
This kid LOVES water, and cups.
