I have brought her a dolly but want to get something else too! My mum has the fisher price walker stroller for the doll - but what else is good for a one year old girl? i should add I have an older DS so a lot of the 'baby' toys we already have from his time as a baby. smile I'm thinking about the fisher price magic motion zoo but I'm a little worried about spending that kind of money and wasting it tbh!! Any ideas - I'm sorry this topic must have been done a million times before but I am finding I'm hopeless at girls toys!!

We got our dd 1 last month the fisher price laugh and learn kitchen - £39.99 in toys r us and both her and our 3 year old love it.

Some empty boxes and cheap wrapping paper. Make sure the wrapping paper is the cheap, because the more expensive stuff tends to have glitter or a sheen on it which can come off.

You DD will have LOADS of fun!

Oh, and I also bought DS one of those Activity Cubes from Toys R Us.

He preferred the paper!

one of those bubble machines; fairly cheap and very popular! Also good shape sorter.

four little feet - we have both! blush both brought as presents for ds (ie it's not me who spoils him!!)

DD has a tendancy to eat paper... grin

Was considering a kitchen for xmas but I'll have a nosey at that as I agree DS who is nearly 4 will love that!

how about an ark or a farm?

omg I'm in love with that kitchen!! grin

Now to convince DP!! smile

dd loved her little tramploine when she was one (still uses it now tbh!!)

OMG my children sound so spoilt. We've just today got back from my mum's where they have brought one for their house, and she liked it but didn't seem to 'love' it.

llynnnn; I'm thinking of a trampoline for a 16 month old for christmas; which one was it please?

llynnnn Thu 18-Sep-08 11:52:50

its very similar to this one, ours was from elc though iirc

never done a link before! hope it works!!

thank you! do you leave it out and let them use it when they want... or supervised only?

I got one of these (table & chairs) for his 1st birthday and painted them - he still won't part with them to pass on to DD, so I may have to do her one of her own, although I was also considering doing a paint job on this dolls bed instead / as well.

We had the toys issue as well - DD got a little people noah's ark which she absolutely loves and went well with the little people garage which DS had. Other than that, and dolls (which other people bought her - we had no idea she wanted one blush) I can't remember what else she got. Specifically, other than clothes, I can't remember anything we got her blush. She is going to get a £6 dolls buggy for her 2nd birthday though because I know that's what she wants more than anything in the world.

i have always left it out but our house is very open plan so I can see her pretty much all the time!
its not very high off the ground and doesnt bounce them high iykwim so no more dangerous than them climbing onto a chair, i feel??

fab; just wasn't sure due to the warnings on the product site, you know how they are. doesn't really give you a feel for what to do in real terms though!

I got dd2 the little people zoo, she still loves it now she is 2, and so does dd1 who is nearly 5

We got DS very little for his first birthday - no body noticed, and if they did ask, we said we have put money away in his savings account for him. As a second child we had loads of toys and not enough room for much more, so we did this - and will be doing the same for christmas as he is 2 in Feb.

dd2 got a forward facing carseat for her first birthday.

for xmas last year she got dd1s old toys from the loft.

they are too young to care whether it came from harrods or oxfam.
