Toys For 1 Year Olds - Top 10 Toys For 1 Year Olds

Updated on July 16, 2011

Whether the Christmas season is approaching or it's almost Birthday time, the importance of finding the perfect gift for your child is always there. Most of the time, when you have a very young child, that gift you're looking for is a toy. Toys can be many things - bikes, books, play sets, video games - but not all toys are good toys.

This even more relevant with 1 year olds.

1 year olds are constantly learning; they are, in fact, learning something new about themselves, or the world, every second. This makes their surroundings, as well as the things they interact with in those surroundings, very important. They learn by interacting: so it's vita they interact with the right thing.

That's where toys come. The best toys for 1 year old boy - as with the best for 1 year old girl - are the ones that make that interactive experience better and more rewarding.


Here is a list of the top 10 toys for 1 year olds:


Fisher Price Time to Learn Ride On

One of the best kind of toys for 1 year olds are toys in which they can ride on. It's essential for them to learn how their body can work together - as well as work together with other objects.

One of the most recommended toys for 1 year olds is a toy in which they ride around in - exactly like the fisher price time to learn to ride toy.

The toy is built like a four wheeled scooter (they don't actually ride it around, except with their feet) and has many different learning aspects built within it. Your one year old child can learn about letters, shapes and colors; they can understand the meaning of word associated; there is even a quiz feature which will ask them questions.

Add all those features with the invaluable hand-eye coordination the 1 year old will learn and you have one of the best toys for 1 year olds.
