The Best Gifts For Babys First Birthday

                      I received toys and books to facilitate this post.

  It is hard to believe that my first grandchild is going to be celebrating her first birthday in a couple of months. It seems like yesterday that the baby was born and I wrote about becoming a grandma for the first time. My granddaughter is growing up too quickly. I wish that I could stop time and keep her little but that is not going to happen. So I will enjoy her and look forward to more grandbabies. I will also remember the day she was born, every time I snuggle with my soft sherpa photo blanket. Maybe that is why I have five kids all spread out in ages so I will be able to enjoy lots of grandchildren.




 This little girl brings such joy to our family and I am lucky that my daughter and son-in-law live nearby. That way I can see her often. Her uncles sure do enjoy holding her and talking to her. I think one of the best parts of being a grandma is being able to spoil my grandchild. So just like Christmas, this cute little girl is going to get lots of presents. Maybe she won't chew on her birthday presents like she did at Christmas. Since I have five kids and my youngest is 11 years old, I have plenty of experience in buying baby toys and I like to buy unique baby gifts for baby's first birthday. Some of my favorite baby toy brands are LeapFrog and Vtech as these toys are so cute. These brands of toys are always The Best Educational & Fun Gifts For Babies & Toddlers. So I love buying age-appropriate toys from these learning brands of toys. Check out some of the toys that my grandbaby will be receiving for her first birthday.

Toys for first steps


 My grandbaby is learning to walk so I will be giving her a Vtech Stroll & Discover Activity Walker™ for her first birthday. This walker grows with her and can be enjoyed for many years. Mom will love that the activity walker can be used for floor play and those first steps. Once the baby masters walking she will still enjoy pushing the walker around the house. This activity walker has so many buttons to press and I love that it has two speeds on it so the walker will not move to fast while the baby is learning to walk. The activity panel is removable from the walker so the parents can take it with for those long car trips. That way my grandbaby can press buttons and spin gears while in the car. This learning toy even has a removable cell phone so the baby can pretend to call grandma. You can find this toy that teaches colors and numbers at all major retailers.


Easy to assemble


 I decided to help the parents out and assemble the activity walker for them. It was super easy to put together and I did not need any tools.

Keeping baby happy in the stroller



 I remember when my kids were little and how once they learned to walk they never wanted to be in the stroller. Our daily walks became frustrating until I learned how to keep them entertained in the stroller. Moms need these daily walks for exercise and for some Me time so I got my grandbaby a Butterfly Counting Pal™ learning toy. This plush learning toy attaches to the stroller and keeps baby entertained so mom can go for a walk. This cute colorful toy also helps the baby fall asleep with soft, classical melodies. There are so many fun things on-the-go activity toy that baby can rattle, squeak, turn, or crinkle all while developing her fine motor skills and learning things like numbers and colors. This learning toy is available now at all major retailers


Books are always awesome



 Books always make great gifts at any age. Books help kids learn so much and the gift of books for baby's first birthday will help them enjoy reading. Reading to babies will help them later on when they are learning to read. I read to all my kids when they were babies and they knew how to read by first grade. My daughter loved books when she was a baby and I remember her 2nd birthday when grandma gave her some books. The books were the first gift that she opened. My daughter had to look at every book before she would open the rest of her presents.


 So I discovered these cute books for my granddaughter that are about space and the ocean. These adorable picture books are a fun way to introduce the smallest readers to STEM subjects. Nerdy Babies: Ocean and  Nerdy Babies: Space invites toddlers to travel to the bottom of the ocean, or in the far reaches of the solar systems to answer questions like...How deep is the ocean? What does it sound like in space? The author, Emmy Kastner, is a former teacher and fully understands how important it is to present science as fun at an early age. I just love the bright colorful pictures in the books and I know that my grandbaby will enjoy looking at them while her mom reads to her.

  11. I love leap frog and VTech. My son has some great toys from those two companies. One of my absolute favorites is the VTech apple. It's a learning letters toy with multiple settings from letters, to sounds, to words. Sprinkled in with music and memory games. He got it as a one year old gift and still plays with it at 4 an a half.
