Awesome Gifts For One Year Old Boys
If you’ve been tasked with finding the perfect gift for a 1 year old boy, you’re probably feeling a little overwhelmed by all the choices! It’s a tricky decision, but do not fear, for here at Yellow Octopus we have gifts for children of every age and at every stage of their development.
One year old boys are just starting to explore the world around them. They’ll be drinking by themselves (but probably in a wobbly fashion), attempting to use a spoon (but definitely spilling some along the way!) and stacking things and knocking them down. Our range of quirky kids sippy cups, spoons with fun-shaped ergonomic handles, and colourful building toys are all wonderful gift choices for a one year old boy.
You’ll notice that a one year old boy will be pointing to things and people they recognise and/or want, so why not encourage this behaviour by providing a range of play time figures of animals and humans. Similarly, books with bright illustrations, letters of the alphabet and simple words are a great way to get little boys practising their vocabulary and pronunciation, and using their visual skills.
One year old boys are on the move! They’ll be rolling, grabbing, wriggling and writhing, which is all excellent for their muscle development. Good muscle development is essential in aiding crawling… and eventually, walking! Any gift that encourages moving, rolling, grabbing and manipulating objects is a definite win and we have so many gifts that hit this nail on the head!
Foot-to-floor ride on toys are so much fun for 1 year old boys. They’re easy to use, highly interactive and not only assist with muscle development, but also balance and coordination. Yellow Octopus has some wonderful styles, including a racing car and a fire engine, sure to drive one year old boys wild with excitement.
Musical toys take all that fun young energy and put it to bashing, crashing, loud, boisterous good use; they are ideal for developing hand-eye coordination and muscles! Gifts like push-button electronic sound-makers and good old-fashioned shakers and rattles will do the trick, and we have a wonderfully diverse selection for you to choose from.
You’ll notice one year old boys start to mimic the actions of others, so if you’re on the phone, driving a car, doing the dishes or playing an instrument, any little one year old boy in the vicinity is going to want to do what you’re doing! Gifts that allow them to do what the people around them are doing are sure to be well received and used frequently.
You can’t go past a cuddly, comforting soft toy for the one year old boys and boy, do we have an assortment here at Yellow Octopus! The Jellycat range of soft toys is known for its super-soft plush fur, and there are so many cute animal designs to choose from: think adorable frogs, floppy-eared bunnies, cuddly dogs, wise elephants, spotted leopards and even a big blue whale! Most Jellycat soft toys are suitable from birth, so they’re a wonderful gift choice for little ones.
