      Back when my kids were toddlers, one of their favorite toys are the wooden puzzles. And believe me, wooden toys never really go out of fashion. Siblings would be able to use it when he grows a little bigger.

      Cool selection of gift ideas for 1 years old girls. It's amazing the variety of toys we get nowadays for kids, but it's important to take the time to buy the right gift. And more importantly it's paramount to teach kids the importance of value, appreciation and gratitude for being able to be blessed with so much!
