What toys do your newly 1 year olds like to play with best? My daughter doesn't play much with any of her toys, though she does like stuffed animals and the trampoline. All the other toys do not seem to hold her interest long. Her favourite items are the TV remotes and my iPhone. Have any of you found a toy that really keeps your bub interested and playing with it for a long time?

I just had to replace my iPhone because I am in the same boat! Now I need to REALLY make sure she stops getting ahold of the electronics!!! She enjoys her play kitchen, bangs her pots and opens/shuts all the doors etc, but only if I go to her playroom with her. Otherwise she's wherever I am, getting into mischief! She plays for short bursts on her own.. maybe climbing onto a musical rolling toy (just learned how to get on them herself, but can't push herself yet)... or maybe finding something to knock over or something that makes music to mess with for a bit. But then its back to finding me, wanting me to entertain her or hold her. Whenever I have a second baby, it will be a rude awakening for her!! Although I am starting to see her get more independent... doesn't want me holding her hand outside unless she's unstable bc its not smooth enough etc.

Mine too! She's not interested in ANY of her toys.We got her a beautiful wooden piano that looks and feels like the real deal and she only plays it while passing by.None of her other toys got played with a lot-except to be chewed on and mouthed.If anything, only 1 toy gets played with recently-a LEAP FROG house toy.I bought her a busy cube-the one like in the doctor's office waiting area-with wooden beads to thread thru loopy loops and she hardly plays with that too.Got her a toy phone and a toy remote control but doesn't like them except to chew them! Maybe babies like all sorts of buttons to push? She adores my blackberry -a miracle it's still ok!

My twins love the remotes and the phone. Caleb plays more with his Legos and Maddie plays with her baby doll the most. But the biggest toy they love is their ride on toys that make music.

my daughter likes dolls, balls, and books. the tv remote and the iphone is also a fave but try not to let her play with it much...

The tupperware cupboard is his fav. LOL We keep it locked though so it's a very special treat when he can wreak havoc in it. Otherwise a remote control car he absolutely loves. He'll hand us the remote so he can chase the car around and he's just learning to push the buttons to get it to move himself. Another big hit is a simple car ramp with simple cars, especially if you play with him. And newly added is anything where things go in/out of; a toy mailbox with 3 letters and a slot that they go in and a toy piggiebank are big hits.
