The birth of a child is a joyful event for both the family and people around. When this child finally gets old enough to have a birthday, the parents are over the moon and go all out to make it a special day. A birthday party is held, though the child understands nothing and will not remember anything, the people around want to give this pure soul as much love and blessings they can.

When you are invited to such a party, how do you buy the right gift? Yes, you can walk into StarWalkKids and buy things marked for a 1-year-old. Here are a few more ideas to make your present stand out from the crowd:

Blocks

This is the age the child starts learning to hold things firmly. Try to pry something out of the hands of a 1-year-old and you will see what a firm grip they have. Get them colorful building blocks. They won’t know what to do with it but the colors will fascinate them. Over a period of time, they will start trying to make sense of it and put one on top of the other, building towers eventually. This is a food for their imagination.

Shapes

They still don’t know to make out different shapes. Get them puzzles that involve shapes. Big blocks in different shapes that need to be put into the right hole to fit in. this will improve their cognitive development.

Light And Music

If you want to get them toys that are fun and will get their attention get them things with a lot of sounds and lights. A child of this age is bound to get cranky and unmanageable at times, these loud and bright toys can be very handy in such times.

Things That Move

These children have just started, or are yet to move on their own, unassisted. When they have something interesting moving in front of them, they are tempted to catch it, thus moving more on their own.
