The ideal gift for a 1 year old should be visually appealing and grab their attention, very young children love brightly coloured toys with lots of contrasts. Look for fun, bright colours and big illustrations that will attract babies' attention.
Ideal toys for a 1 year old or 2 year olds are wooden pull along toys which are good for developing hand to eye co-ordination, manual dexterity and colour recognition. Stacking blocks also start off learning to count in a fun, relaxed way. Animal dressing up is always fun and musical boxes are soothing at bedtime.
For a gift that will be cherished, look beautiful in a childs bedroom and be just that little bit different why not consider a night light that emits a soft glow?
