For whatever my recommendations mean...here are some toys that are big hits in our house with the one year old!
Melissa and Doug Rainbow Stacker
Melissa and Doug 18 pc wooden stacking train
Haba Discovery Blocks
There are a few more I wanted to share, but alas, my baby is fussing at my leg and ppp-uuuu does he smell. So, I must go! If you have toys that are LOVED at your house, please post a comment and share!
