    Just wondered what everyone got for their babys 1st birthday, or what they're planning on getting them?

    I'm a bit stuck as I'm having a joint birthday/naming ceremony so she's going to get a fair few presents :/ So far I've got her a set with a bowl, plate, fork and spoon in because it was half price and I thought it was cute lol.

    I've copied this from the last post I responded to, but here's what I got Colin.

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

    im going to ask my sister to get my daughter a d is for diamond item, not bothered what. Scarlett has loads off toys and doesn’t really need anything else and think it will be nice to keep it for her for when she is older.

    We've got Riley the
    vtech 3 in 1 scooter

    IMO I think you ladies have gone a little OTT! (or maybe I'm just mean?) I don't see the point in going over board, especially at this age as he hasn't got a clue, and when he needs new toys I buy them when ever, and there's his grandmas and great grandmas aunty's and uncles to buy him presents

    Obviously I'll buy him a few bits more, but not too much more than the scooter

    Oh that scooters cute!

    I had a look on another thread (someone posted an almost identical thread!) and saw that somebody had put about a little seat and foot stool which I thought was quite funky.

    I think Ill go with you in that Ill only buy a main present and maybe 1 or 2 others. She'll get loads from other people, I dont want my house filled with the same things!

    I just don't see the need to overload him with toys which he won't play with anyway! He's got lots of my nephews old things, but my nephew never used them either, so what's the point in buying him loads? Just a waste of money, if there's something I see and think he'll like, I buy it him as and when

    i agree hun.
    ive got my son...
    the ELC car garage and the 3 sets of cars to go in it.
    the fisher price stacking cars set.
    and a vtech mobile phone.
    i know i am naughty but feel guilty for how much i have got my DD so i also got DS... a carrier bag of carbootsale toys, which i will disinfect and box up together and give to him the day after his party.
    the bag includes... a playskool ball pop up thingy,
    various cars,
    and a shape sorter,

    i have asked family to buy him clothes. BORING i know but when you have another child under 3 :baby: you tend to have 2 lots of toys to clear up. :winkwink:

    if i buy him anymore it will only be money wasted. i have learnt the HARD WAY! to buy as much as you can at carbootsales and charity shops/in sales.
    its almost my DD's 3rd birthday and i have got her... (knowing she will pay FULL attention to this birthday) so....

    a basket of fruit and veg for her kitchen (she already has a kitchen)
    a tea set,
    timmy time car,
    vtech cooking pot with talking veg (thinks he's called cooksy or something)
    2 bags of play food,
    fisher price little people castle,
    fisher price little people house,
    fisher price little people farm,
    my little pony baby (sooooo... cute)

    cuz i most of that on ebay/carbooty ^ it came to... £35.
    so were going to buy her a slide as well as the above to round it off to £50.
    we usually buy all NEW but NEVER AGAIN! not after LAST YEAR!
    we spent waaaay over £100 on her and it wasn't played with till she turned 28 months easily.
    what a waste of money!!! :dohh: call me a cheap skate but... from now on, i am going to enjoy spending the bare minimum on our kids before they demand ipods and laptops because tom, dick and harry have one!!! LOL :haha:

    Smart trikes are fab :) She was in hers today. FOB brought her one for easter.

    Ive been looking on ebay to try and find some nice wooden toys. Your so right about buying second hand. At the moment they wont know, but in 10 years time theyll want to most expensive brand new thing around!
