    I got the coolest gift for my niece.

    Go to Pottery Barn Kids - they have these little animal rockers, I think they're called "Critters". They're small, for the little ones. They had a lion and an elephant. If my niece was a nephew instead, he'd be riding the lion.

    Plus, they're kinda cute, so my brother and SIL will be happy. I provided a link for a horse, but I'd recommend going to the store because they were on sale when I went (and there were more to choose from). Best of luck!

    This is a very small thing but I get it for every child turning a year and it never ceases to be the favorite toy. It was my daughter's favorite out of all the millions of toys she got. I think it's by Fisher Price. It's called a sparkling symphony stacker. It is a stacker made of stars that light up. The top is a star with a smiley face that plays music by Mozart. It's only about $15 and is the best toy ever! I just checked ebay, they have it for $17 including shipping.

    I dont know why each and every be certain around you believes you're being a procedures too lax. You do self-discipline her. Your technique seems powerful so what's to criticize. i admire which you in basic terms make her take a seat on the chair for 10 - 20 seconds. that's in basic terms a distraction and a rapid reminder that she has achieved something incorrect. Plonking her on the naughty chair while shes a million/2 way by way of a around with the cat has a ask your self factor in itself. similar to a smack i assume yet much less painful :)

    Why not try taking it easy on the gifts. Remember, he's only 1. My son is 19months, and although we try to keep things low key, his grandparents tend to spoil him. (I certainly don't want to tell you how to raise your child!!! But, I was worried about mine sort of losing sight of reality with all the gifts... not to mention the true spirit of Christmas. This year, he was old enough to understand and we actually picked out a few older toys together to donate. He was very excited about helping to make "sad boys" "happy.")

    It must be difficult with birthday and Christmas so close.

    Maybe instead of gifts, you could do something special with him for a treat. There's a helicopter museum near us that my son LOVED at age 17mos. He started to really enjoy the zoo at 1yr (although he called everything "doggie.") Aquariums are great places to take little ones too. Even if they don't really get all the animals, they are very stimulated by all the colors and bubbles and movement.

    Good luck.

    after hearing a billion battery operated toys go off in my house, my new love is wooden toys. My now 16 month old has tons of wooden blocks to stack, cars to push, and puzzles. There's quite a bit out there, they last a lot longer than plastic. He also likes anything with wheels, it's usually and obsession with boys!

    We just had a 1 year birthday in December for our daughter.

    She's very into books, so we got her all the classics: very hungry catapillar, goodnight moon, Sandra Boyton books.

    I also keep a cupboard for her in the kitchen so that she has something to do while I make dinner. We bought fake plastic food and bowls to stick in there, that she loves playing with. And this is cheap! I think I spent $5 for about 30 pieces of fake food!

    clothes...they grow so quickly...and I am sure your discovered at christmas...that at this age...they just like "opening" the package...they really don't care what is in it!!! lol!

    Also...some kind of (short !) close to the ground "riding toy" that he can "push" with his feet...these are always fun!!! Fisher Price makes one that is a riding toy...or a stand up and walk with it toy to help them learn to "walk" it is very cute...it hasa "hoop" on the front, and a "nose" that when you push it...it makes noises..and it plays music...also has light action...it is brightly colored...and, as alsways...fisher price is made to last!!!

    appropriate gifts for that age should be developmental not educational

    so what ever you chose here are some quality's to look for: colors, textures, lights, sounds, music, songs or storytelling grips/handles (they are very help full early on for development muscle memory when it comes to holding their fist cups etc.)

    Oh what fun!!! I would get him anything that encourage dexterity use. Blocks are always great. Shape sorters are fun too. And you can never go wrong with pushing or pulling toys (ie: corn popper) that will encourage the walking.
