I recommend something they can grow into. I had someone give my DD a set of lovely soft skittles and balls.

We got given a piece of marathon blanket when dd was that age. The shiny foil stuff you get at the end of a race. It was far and away the most popular thing we owned for a few months. Crinkly, sparkly and fairly indestructible. Also light and easy to transport.

Small paddling pool and lots of plastic balls to fill it with (not water!) or you can buy pop up ball pools. Pop up crawl through tunnel? Treasure basket? Wooden peg puzzles, you can get simple ones with just three or four shapes? Bath toys are also good fun?

We got some soft plastic squishy blocks for DS and he still loves them (14mo)

We got DS a nice toy box (cheapy pine Argos one) and a few "Lamaze" and "Whoozit" type toys. The toys are long gone now he's nearly 8, but the box has been really handy fur dressing up and games.

DD got a walker car thingy from my parents. She loved it for about 5 months.

Other than that we got her a load of grow and play bits half price from Sainsburys in their October sale, stacking cups etc for her stocking.

They dont need a lot at that age grin

ooh just remembered the fisher price buckets were a big hit and DD still plays with them now. They are a good size for toddler putting things in and carrying and can be used in the bath or sandpit.
