Best Learning Toys for 1 Year Olds

Updated on July 17, 2016

What are the Best Learning Toys for 1 Year Olds?

Most parents are looking for the best learning toys for 1 year olds to help their kids learn and develop into more productive individuals in the future. And frankly, this is one of the most important decisions that can affect your child's development.

You see, as a child reaches 12 months, his physical, mental and emotional development speeds up and he becomes more curious about the world around him. He begins to walk, talk and imitate things. He begins to follow simple commands. He starts displaying emotion. And he begins to understand the things happening around him.

The rate by which one year olds learn is quite phenomenal. Kids this age soak up learning like a sponge. They take in everything they can. And this presents both a unique opportunity and a challenge for parents to help their kids achieve their fullest potentials.

So, how can you help your kids get a great start? You can do it by providing them with the best educational toddlers toys!

One year old kids are very active. They can be all over the place! They are starting to learn how to walk so it's best to give them something that can help improve their balance and coordination. As such, baby walkers fit the bill perfectly.

Baby walkers do more than just help your one year old learn how to make his first steps. It can also teach him how to stand up, and move with ease and confidence as he starts to walk. It can also be one of the best educational toys for kids since most baby walkers are equipped with nice extras such as musical toys, spinners, roller bars, and some light up features.

Kids this age seem to be intrigued by anything they hear, be it animal sound or human speech, and try to imitate those sounds. Why do they do it? Well, it's because they are learning how to talk! Encourage your kid's speech and vocabulary development by providing them with toys that produce sounds or music.

Books for Toddlers - Introduce Them to the Wonderful World of Books

Preserve an age-old tradition by handing down your favorite nursery rhymes to your kids. My Very First Mother Goose comes highly recommended!

Another excellent book for the very young is Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever (Golden Bestsellers Series) that teaches young kids new and familiar names for objects grouped by subject, theme, and setting, in the city and on the farm, at the dentist and at the grocer's, in the kitchen and at the circus and all the places they frequent, and Busy, Busy Town, a book that presents words, concepts and a myriad of objects to inquisitive youngsters. Great for developing young minds!
