Best toy for 1 year old boy

Updated on November 8, 2015

1 year old boys can be very active, with short attention spans. This can make buying toys for them problematic as they can grow frustrated or bored with a toy quickly. After which they tend to stop playing with it. When you pick a toy for a 1 year old I would recommend looking for something that makes sound, has movement and/or flashing lights. The idea being that your toddler will get more stimulation from the toy and keep going back to playing with it.
