Thinking of the perfect gift to buy a 1-year-old girl? There are plenty of toys out there that cater to kids of all ages, so make sure to choose developmentally appropriate toys. Ideally, toys that target cognitive, social, and physical skills make the best toys for 1-year-old girls.
Keep these things in mind when you’re selecting toddler toys for a 1-year-old girl to make sure that the money you spend goes a long way.
Soft Toys Never Grow Old
At age one, babies are fascinated with colors, shapes, and textures, and will gleefully lap up any toy they can explore with their hands as well as their mouth.
- Soft and cuddly stuffed animals provide plenty of tactile stimulation and allow babies to develop their social and emotional skills through pretend play.
- Soft cloth books make the best gifts for one-year-old girls. Their colorful illustrations, soft, washable pages, and simple, read-aloud words provide the perfect practice for reading books later on.
- Soft blocks, like the Baby Einstein Explore and Discover Soft Blocks, deliver hours of discovery and exploration with the different sensory activities in each block.
Little Girls Like to Get Physical Too
Push cars, ride-on cars, and mini slides aren’t only for active baby boys, they make great gifts for one-year-old girls too.
The Little Tikes Cozy Coupe is perhaps one of the most beloved ride-on toys for toddlers 1 year old and up, and has a fairy-inspired version for girls.
Make Bath Time Fun with Water-Friendly Toys
Ask any parent and they’ll tell you that one of the biggest challenges taking care of a toddler is getting them to stay inside the bathtub. Be a godsend and give toys that will keep bath time from being a chore.
Spin fill bathtub toys, squirters, and floating bath toys (we like Munchkins’ Float & Play Bubbles) all do a good job of keeping babies preoccupied at bath time. An added bonus is you can take these toys to the pool and beach too!
These are just some of the gift ideas we’ve thought up that will be perfect for 1-year-old girls. Have a look at our list below for the complete guide. Have a question? Slide us a message in the comments section below!
