My DGS his first birthday as well as Christmas coming up.
Would really welcome ideas for presents that you DGC of that age have loved and continued to play with. Price range from cheapest upwards.
Also would like any recommendations for Looking for a good toy box. Have seen some of lovely but very expensive wooden ones online but not looking to pay silly prices - though would like something that's good quality and practical/ easy to use.
Push trolleys with building bricks in, rocking seat , humming top, stacking beakers, lift out very simple jigsaws, sensory board books with easy turn pages, wooden trikes with no pedals, are all good presents. Ikea do nice toy boxes for not a lot of money. Letterbox do more expensive ones if you want to spend a bit more.
For their first Christmas we have bought all our DGC a Captain's chair. We get them from a company called Hometime Crafts who will personalise them for you. DGS1 is nearly 8 now and still uses his. They are sturdy enough to be hauled around and used to climb on as well as for sitting at the craft table etc.
Hometime crafts have a website but I can't do the link on my phone. They have loads of personalised things - including a toy box I think.
