Just wondering what to get my daughter for her 1st birthday and christmas (birthday-Oct). I have a few things in mind. Although I want to purchase them and give them to her myself, but I still need ideas for the rest of the family nagging me to tell them what to get her. Is there anything you Mum's thought was great/usefull that your child loved?

My mom got us an Annual Zoo Pass for my daughter's birthday this year. GREAT GIFT! We've been able to take several different friends on play dates to the zoo. Maybe you could request that a group of friends or relatives go in together to get that for her (if you have a zoo or children's play place or museum). That will reduce some of the toys she ends up with and is a very useful and fun gift.

Another thought: I got my daughter the Fisher Price Little People Happy Sounds Home (dollhouse) for Christmas. When asked, I requested that people get Little People accessories that she could use with the house.

I also request clothes and pajamas when asked. That is something people don't have to go out of their way to get (Wal Mart, Target) and is very useful to me.

My daughters first were mostly dolls, stuffed animals, & learning toys. Like where you put the block in the slot & music starts or something. Music toys are always great, babies love music. Maybe some "Baby Einstein" movies.

Our son recently turned one and we got him a musical activity table and push along bike. He also got a walk along popcorn toy, bubble blowing push along lawnmower, tip trucks, a ball and a spin and bounce zebra. He really likes the rocking horse we already have for him, and his ball. Very similiar to the other posts!

Here are some of the ideas we gave to our family/friends: walking popcorn toy, board books, kids bowls, spoons, forks, puzzles with big pieces, clothes in the next size up, faucet cover, ball, blocks, Fisher Price Little People toys, and wagon. If you don't mind if its something he physically open, you could enroll in a class at the local Y or Park District (like a toddler music class or something fun).

We bought our son a wagon and a riding toy (the kind you sit on and push along with your feet). He got a rocking horse and toy box from his grandparents (and we desperately needed the toy box so I had personally asked it). He also got a beautiful hand painted stool for his bathroom.
