    Hello

    Im really struggling to decide on what to get Paige for her 1st birthday in July.

    My first idea was to get a bouncy castle and paddling pool combo from early learning centre but Paige is not even crawling yet alone walking or standing.

    My mum is getting her one of those 3 in 1 push along trykes and my mil is getting her a ball game because she loves anything with balls.

    I want to get her something really nice but she already has soooo much.

    What did you get your LO's for their 1st birthdays?

    Just walked around Walmart in the toy section and let him pick his own! lol! There was this car trailor loader toy with this number pad thing on the side, he was just hooked on the buttons! So we just got some toys with buttons, they really don't understand what's going on, we didn't have a giant party or anything.

    The cake is a must though! Nothing like cake face for their first birthday!!!


    My little guy is turning 2 in July, thinking of a Power Wheel, gotta get him ready for the dirtbikes and 4 wheelers and cars when he gets older right :)

    So far (I say so far because I can't seem to stop buying much to hubby's dismay! :haha:) I've bought:

    80 pc mega blocks set
    Little People Surprise Zoo Set
    Little People Train
    Little People Plane
    Little People set with 3 figures
    Leather Bound Precious Moments Baby Bible
    Activity Cube
    Penguin Backpack
    Set of color matching/puzzle blocks
    3 Thomas and Friends music book set

    I'm sure I'm forgetting something! Think I went a bit overboard and there's more I'd like to buy!

    Not Crazy about mega blocks, at least just yet. My son is only interested in the zipper on the bag, opening and closing it. When it's opened, he only dumps them out the bag and that's it. Can't imagine a 1 yr old doing much more with them. All the other things on your list sound great!

    Colin loves to take apart the stuff I build! :haha: Even if it's not what it's meant for at least he enjoys it.

    Thank you guys, there are some great ideas here.
    I think I might be getting her one of the bouncing turtles, similar to the bounce and spin zebra but it says numbers lettrers and colours to help her learn.
    Also a Weybaloo glow worm because she loves everything weybaloo at the moment.

    Keep the ideas coming though, I still have a few weeks to find something else xxx

    My niece turned a year old in March and she got a wagon and some push toys.

    She also loves anything that makes noise.

    I know what you mean, We are not doing much party wise and the bits we have got Im hoping will last a while.


    I have got the Zebra from a site called netmums that we use here in England. It is second hand but looks like new and was less than half the price of a new one.
    I really did not want to spend loads on her like when you say they dont know what is happening, its just a normal day to her :)
