Best toys for a 1 year old.

Push Toy:

A push toy helps unsteady new walkers feel a little more stable and allows the child to see some of the benefits of walking without the risk.

Nesting or Stacking Toy :

There's something about getting one object to fit into another that just gives your 1-year-old a kick and it works his motor skills.

Shape Sorter :

Children work on hand-eye coordination and learn how objects with similar properties go together.

Musical Instruments:

Making noise is the number-one thing on any 1-year-old's to-do list.
If parents can stand it, instruments are fabulous for learning causality.

Bath Toy :

At this point, your baby probably doesn't need convincing to linger in the bath. After all the washing's been done, turn bathtime into playtime.

Blocks:

The ultimate creative toy, blocks offer infinite opportunities for freeform play, and hone motor skills.

Board Book:

Board books are hard to destroy, so they're great for this age, Sitting down with a book and having that special time together is so important, plus kids are learning language skills by figuring out that those squiggles on the page have meaning.

Pull Toy:

If your 1-year-old isn't yet a confident walker, give her the motivation to keep working on those gross motor skills with a pull toy. Pull toys also allow kids to practice their balance while having fun.

Ball :

Now that your babe is standing, he'll work his motor skills by bouncing, throwing, and dropping (and dropping and dropping) a soft, textured ball.
